Watch my makeup tutorial videos on facebook

Hi everyone! I’ve done several makeup tutorials throughout the years on my facebook page. With the links below to the individual videos, you can watch even if you don’t join facebook. Pretty cool!

Just as a heads up, I’m currently working primarily with MAC makeup and my only studio is in Takoma Park, MD just one mile from Washington, DC. You will hear many references my previous studio locations of Alexandria, Baltimore, and Cabin John in my older videos. However, my only studio is in Takoma Park, MD. You’ll also hear me talking a lot about Younique makeup, but I don’t sell Younique online anymore. I have a few Younique products still available in inventory if there’s something you’re craving.

Enjoy!

Sarah Smoothes her Skin, Builds her Confidence

Sarah has been struggling with skin issues for the past 30 years, ever since she developed melasma during her pregnancy. When we spoke on the phone, Sarah described patchy dark spots, white scars, and pitting that had taken their toll on her skin texture and appearance. She had been to makeup counters and watched YouTube videos yet hadn’t figured out how to work with her features and create the sun-kissed glow of J Lo that she desired. After finding me in a Google search, Sarah contacted me for a makeup lesson as she loved my work. Highly motivated, Sarah drove two hours each way for her makeup lesson on her day off.

We walked through Sarah’s products to determine which ones matched and would work with both her skin tone and uneven skin. We eliminated the products that didn’t match her skin tone and those that had a lot of luminosity, since shine brings attention to flaws in the skin. Then we set to work creating her matte look using moisturizer, foundation primer, concealer, foundation, creme eye shadows, eye liner, mascara, bronzer, blush, and lipstick.

After we finished her hands-on makeup lesson, Sarah looked stunned at how smooth her skin was with a hint of the bronze glow she craved. She confessed that she hated going to department store makeup counters, because they weren’t private and she didn’t like being on display for people to watch. The one-on-one private makeup lesson with me perfectly fit what she needed, she said.

Sarah, you looked beautiful today when you walked into my studio and you looked gorgeous after your makeup when you glowed with confidence. Keep up the confidence, girl, and rock you!

To being fabulous!

Photos from Spanish Wine and Tapas Party

On Saturday, I hosted my fourth monthly social party for twelve trans-women and allies. One of our guests, Celia, mentioned at an earlier party that she loved making tapas and thus I hosted a Spain-themed party. We started with Cava then moved on to Verdejo and Albariño, two white wines. Then we compared five Tempranillo-based wines and ended with a 100% Monastrell (Mouvedre) wine. Unlike most parties, I actually had a chance to take a few photos during the party. Enjoy!

In the first four photos, Diana shows off her latest look, which she applied herself after a series of makeup lessons from me. In photo five, Celia carries on an animated conversation with Dawn (not shown). In photo six, Erica (left) and Bobbi got to know each other over wine.

Transformation: From Danny to Danni

“Transformation: Danny to Danni” shows the experience of a cross dresser at her first makeover. Danni posed for the second image before she saw her reflection in the mirror. Her euphoria is evident in the last two images after she saw herself fully transformed.

Dawn’s Picnic Look for the Cherry Blossom Festival

Complete with a new spring makeup look, Dawn headed out to picnic with friends at the Washington, DC Cherry Blossom Festival! I combined pale blush and metallic taupe cream eye shadows and crystalline powder eye shadow for eyeshadow and lined her eye with smudged black pearl eye shadow. We finished her eye look with lash-lengthening mascara. We used a lightweight CC Cream with sunscreen instead of foundation to give her an ultra-lightweight outdoor feel topped with a touch of creamy pink blush. For her lips, I lined them with neutral lip liner, added Pink Cherié lipstick, and topped it off with Pink Parfait lip gloss. Dawn added a sundress and bonnet to finish off her picnic by the Tidal Basin look. Happy spring!

MTF Transformations: Abbi Kadabra Magically Transforms Travis into 50s Housewife

Travis and I met at an LGBT Thanskgiving Dinner in 2012, and we hit it off immediately as I perused his drag queen photos on his cell phone. Travis dresses as Abby Cadabra for performance art and to express himself in sometimes outlandish ways that his guy side just can’t justify. While Travis and Abby don’t fall under the transgender or crossdresser umbrellas, they are a part of my male-to-female transformation photo project and are allies of the transgender community. Abby and my trans-women friends hit it off at my Saint Patrick’s Day party, and Abby has extended an invitation to my friends to attend her Halloween blowout party.

In this photo series, Abby applies her own makeup, affixes her breast forms, styles her own hair, and selects her own clothes and accessories. She hams it up for the camera keeping true to her 1950s Stepford Wife persona and the drag queen role of performance art.
