Partial Reopening for Makeovers with Elizabeth Taylor on June 19!

It’s finally time to reopen Makeovers with Elizabeth Taylor! I am pleased to announce that I am reopening for limited in-person services starting this Friday, June 19. All of my virtual services are still available along with a modified makeover menu for in-person visits. I am really excited to reconnect with you all and help you express and embrace your femininity.

Here’s the biggest change. I can’t offer makeup artistry yet based on the MoCo rules. Yikes! That’s going to make nearly everything I do more challenging. And that means that if you want makeup done, you’ll need to do your own makeup with your own products. We will also both need to wear face masks when we are within six feet of each other. And I’ll be checking your temperature before you come in to help reduce the risk to everyone. I have been taking my temperature daily to help protect you as well. If you are feeling sick, please contact me to reschedule your appointment even if you are within the 48-hour window before your appointment.

Here are the details:

1. Makeup artistry: The makeup artist aspect of my business does not fall into the Phase 2 reopening criteria of the draft 19 June 2020 executive order by County Executive Marc Elrich. “Esthetic services” are specifically prohibited. That means that my core offering of “Total Makeovers” will need to be altered as I cannot do your makeup for you.

You are welcome to do your own makeup and arrive with it on. Or you can do your makeup here with your own makeup kit. If you would like feedback as you do your makeup, I can offer feedback from a distance. I cannot physically help you with touchups or provide makeup or makeup brushes for you to use.

2. Photography, Consultations, & Hangout Time: Based on the new rules, I will now be offering photography, wardrobe/makeup consultations (but no makeup touchups), feminine deportment, and hangout time in-person! And this can be indoors or outdoors, weather dependent.

Montgomery County, Maryland (MoCo) is opening for retail business indoors, such as photography, with capacity limits. As usual, I only see one client at a time and by appointment only. I have no waiting area and zero overlap time between clients. Based on this guidance, I can offer indoor services at this time including studio photography, hangout time, girl chat, feminine deportment, makeup and wardrobe feedback (but no makeup touchups). I can also offer outdoor services for those who prefer that such as photography in my yard or girl chat on my back deck or front yard. I don’t have a covered porch, so we couldn’t meet outside in the rain.

3. Dressing services: I will be offering dressing services even though I can’t offer makeup artistry. Clothing will be washed between clients. Silicone items like breast forms and hip/butt pads will be washed with soap and water. Corsets will be spritzed with rubbing alcohol. New wig caps will be worn with all wigs as always. As always, you are welcome to bring your own wardrobe and mix-and-match with mine. Masks will be worn during the dressing process. You will need to provide your own mask.

4. Outings and Fantasy Services: Please contact me if you have a specific idea for an outing or fantasy service. Since I can’t do your makeup or provide you with makeup supplies, it could be challenging to do an outing en femme unless you are skilled at doing your makeup or you wear a mask for the whole outing like to a nail salon. If we go to Freddie’s Beach Bar or similar for outdoor dining, wearing a mask could present a challenge with eating and drinking. Limited stores are open and some are not allowing clothing to be tried on in the store. Makeup testers at MAC, Sephora, and other makeup stores/counters are not available to help with color matching. Clubs and bars are closed throughout the DC, MD, and VA metro area. Museums are closed.

I will only be offering fantasy services that can be done while we are six feet apart (except during the dressing stage). Any additional props for your fantasy experience will need to be your own. As always, you are required to contact me before booking a fantasy appointment to discuss your ideas.

4. Cleanliness: I will be cleaning high-touch surfaces such as chairs, handrails, counters, bathrooms, and faucets with an EPA-approved cleanser after every appointment. I will be allowing additional time between appointments to facilitate this.

5. Masks are Mandatory: If we are within six feet of each, we both are required to wear masks. At greater than six feet such as for photography or socially distanced hang out time/feminine deportment, you may remove your mask.

6. Temperature Taken at Arrival: When you arrive, I will be taking your temperature with an infrared forehead thermometer. If your temperature is at 100.4 F or above, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment. You will also be asked about your recent possible exposure to COVID-19. If you are not feeling well, please contact me to reschedule your appointment even if you’re inside the 48-hour cancellation window. (Guidelines from Professional Photographers of America). Be prepared to answer the following:

  • How are you feeling?
  • Have you had a cough or any flu-like or COVID symptoms in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms with the last 14 days?
  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?

I updated my makeover menu on June 16, 2020 to reflect my current offerings. And I will continue to post updates on my website as MoCo and Maryland release more guidance. Like you, I look forward to reopening and being able to connect with you all again.

MoCo Enters Phase 1 on June 1; Virtual Appointments Continue

I have been enjoying seeing you all via virtual appointments (text, voice, and video) since I closed for in-person appointments in March due to COVID-19. I hope to see many more of you for virtual appointments for makeup lessons, consultations, girl talk, fantasy sessions, wardrobe assistance, online shopping, and more. Check out the options on my makeup menu. If you have something else that you’re interested in, just let me know and we can create a virtual option that works for you.

You may have seen that Montgomery County in Maryland will be entering Phase 1 of reopening this Monday, June 1 at 6 a.m. However, my business will not be reopening to in-person clients this Monday based on the published guidelines.

Here’s why:

1. Makeup artistry: The makeup artist aspect of my business does not fall into the Phase 1 reopening criteria of the 13 May 2020 executive order by Governor Hogan.

2. Local jurisdiction: Montgomery County, Maryland (MoCo) is opened for limited business in its version of Phase 1. For example, retail businesses can only offer curb-side pickup not indoor shopping experiences. Hair salons can only provide hair services not other cosmetology services. Nail salons are not allowed to reopen. Based on this guidance, I cannot offer any indoor services at this time including studio photography or consultations.

3. Outdoor services: I have considered offering outdoor, socially-distanced services such as hangout time, girl chat, feminine deportment, makeup and wardrobe feedback (from a distance), outdoor photography, etc. on my front porch or back deck at a six foot or greater distance. This would require clients to arrived dressed in their preferred mode. However, MoCo is not allowing outdoor fitness classes to resume at this time even though the state of Maryland has as part of its Phase 1, part 2 roll-out. Additionally, curbside-pickup does not seem to mean sidewalk and outdoor shopping. Thus, I can’t justify offering outdoor services yet. The limited outdoor services I listed in this section will likely be the first ones I can offer as MoCo continues to reopen.

I will continue to post updates on my website as MoCo and Maryland release more guidance. Like you, I look forward to reopening and being able to connect with you all.

Maryland Reopening Updates: Virtual Appointments Continue

I have been enjoying seeing you all via virtual appointments (text, voice, and video) since I closed for in-person appointments in March due to COVID-19. I hope to see many more of you for virtual appointments for makeup lessons, consultations, girl talk, fantasy sessions, wardrobing assistance, online shopping, and more. Check out the options on my makeup menu. If you have something else that you’re interested in, just let me know and we can create a virtual option that works for you.

You may have seen that Maryland will be entering Phase 1 of reopening this Friday, May 15 at 5 p.m. However, my business will not be reopening to in-person clients this Friday.

Here’s why:

1. The makeup artist aspect of my business does not fall into the Phase 1 reopening criteria of the 13 May 2020 executive order by Governor Hogan.

2. Montgomery County, Maryland is still open for essential businesses only and will enter Phase 1 at a later date. When Montgomery County enters Phase 1, I will reassess if and how I can offer services that meet the Phase 1 criteria. For example, I may be able to offer photography and consultation services but not makeup artistry and total transformations.

Unfortunately, that means that I do not have any further guidance as to what date I can reopen for in-person clients.

Allison Relaxes at Takoma Park Studio

Allison Relaxes at Takoma Park Studio

Allison loves relaxing with a total makeover and an all-day photography session. She visited my new Takoma Park studio this summer, and we had a blast shooting in the yard, on the deck, and in the “girl cave.”

As a Navy veteran, Allison wanted some photos in tribute to her service as shown by her service dress blue jumper. After her patriotic photos, we went for a casual purple and blue dress that hit at the mid-thigh topped with a blue sweater. Then we did a few ballerina photos on the back deck followed by a glamorous look in a blue velvet dress on the deck and in our “girl cave.”

My studio is located in Takoma Park, Maryland adjacent to Washington, DC. Priding itself as LGBT-friendly, Takoma Park boasts several delicious restaurants including Republic, where I’ve hosted dinners for the DC Trans Ladies Meetup. Republic is also a great venue for grabbing drinks or dinner as part of one of my outing packages.

Let Me Transform You!

Let Me Transform You!

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Taylor, and I love my job! I am a makeup artist and photographer who works full-time with transgender women across the gender spectrum at my studio in LGBT-friendly Takoma Park, MD, minutes from Washington, DC. I offer full male-to-female transformation dressing, makeup, and photography services along with feminine coaching. My website contains lots of resources including my portfolio and latest work, upcoming events, and other trans-friendly service providers.

The Makeover Experience

I want to share with you how I treat makeovers, photography, and your experience with me. When you arrive, I greet you and get you settled in with your drink of choice, and we talk about what you’re looking for in your makeover and photo-shoot. I listen to what you have to say and make suggestions on how we can achieve the overall image you’d like to project. And then we’ll have a look at clothing, wigs, and whatever else you brought.

I love getting to know my clients personally and sharing our experiences with each other. Making new friends is one the best parts of my job. And I love helping my clients make new friends with other crossdressers, trans-women, and allies both at outings I schedule and other trans-friendly events. That being said, I want my closeted clients to leave closeted so I’m just as thorough with protecting your privacy. I want you to look and feel beautiful, confident and pampered. To being fabulous, ladies!

Is this your first makeover?

Lots of girls come to me with little to no experience with dressing. Some have lots of clothes while others have none. I have everything you need to transform from a male to female presentation: wigs, shoes, bras, breastforms, clothings, shapewear, jewelry, accessories, makeup, etc. I have clothes from size 6 to size 4X and shoes form size 8 to size 15. I just ask that you bring nylons/stockings/garter belts if you’d like to wear legwear other than opaque tights and bring your shaving kit so you can get a fresh beard shave.

1. For your first package, I recommend the 3-hour or 4-hour Total Makeover so you can see how you look in femme mode. Then you’ll have time to enjoy the experience with either a 45-minute or 105-min photo shoot or, if you prefer, girl chat or feminine deportment training. This will help you build your confidence and learn more about how you like to express your femininity.

2. For your next package, I recommend a 5-hour or 6-hour Total Makeover and Outing so you can try another look, pose for more photos, and experience interacting with others in a public setting. Now that you know you can happily conquer the outside world, you’ll want to be able to have the skills to do this on your own…

3. So you’ll want to book a 2- to 3- hour makeup lesson. At the makeup lesson, you can learn anything from a simple daytime-to-evening makeup look to a more complex, evening/club eye looks and more advanced contouring if you like. I do the makeup on half your face and you apply it on the other for kinesthetic/hands-on and audio learners. I include written, step-by-step makeup notes that I created for those who love procedure and order. I also have a face map where we can draw your look in your colors if you are more visually/spatially oriented. I have makeup and skin care available for purchase including kits.

Optional: At any point, feel free to add on feminine deportment training where we focus on your feminine movements for an entire hour. Otherwise, I can integrate tips into our other sessions.

4. After your first outing, you’ll likely want to build your feminine wardrobe so you can go out on your own. Shopping is always more fun with a friend so take me along for a good time and to help you find the sizes, styles and looks that fit your personality and body type. Book a 5-hour or 6-hour Total Makeover and Outing and I’ll do your makeup first and you can use my studio wardrobe for our shopping adventure. Or book my 3-hour Shopping Companion Package and arrive in femme or in boy mode ready to shop. If you choose to shop in boy mode, I’ll pack girl items like breast forms, bra, shape wear, heels, and a wig to discreetly bring with us to try on in a dressing room. I’ll help you select items that you like and work with the sales associates on your behalf. If you’re wig shopping, I definitely suggest going with your makeup done. It’s so much easier to tell whether a wig is flattering when you have your face feminized with makeup.

Feel free to come back for more Total Makeovers and Photoshoots to show off your wardrobe, play with the studio wardrobe, and try out new makeup looks. Get a Makeup Makeover before a night out or before a shopping trip with a friend. I’m here to support you and help you connect with our community. 🙂
