Melanie

Melanie

Melanie asked for a natural makeup look with neutral, skin-tone eyeshadows and a soft, natural lip color. We used MAC eyeshadows in Brule, Arena, and Texture with a medium brown Kohl eyeliner in Costa Riche on her upper lid. For her lips, we used a MAC Powder Kiss lipstick in Sultriness over a clear lip primer, skipping lip liner in favor of a softer look.

Melanie chose three dresses and wigs from my wardrobe for her main photos. Her hair choices included the Cameron from Rene of Paris, the Jackson from Noriko, and the Robin from Noriko. She wanted a casual, mainstream look for her outing so we switched over to blue jeans, a black blouse, and a black leather jacket paired with black booties and the Cameron bob. We went for a casual walk in downtown Takoma Park, passing guests enjoying restaurant meals outdoors.

Check out Melanie’s images. Which look is your favorite?

A Traditional Bride

A Traditional Bride

Kuhu came to me for bridal photos in a traditional Indian saree. Her fiancée joined her and helped Kuhu with draping her saree perfectly and coached her on poses she should do to show off the striking gown. For the eyeshadow, we used shades of gold to play off the gold accents in the saree.

We got lucky with mild weather and were able to shoot outdoors in the spring garden with the azaleas in full bloom. We started our makeover session early enough in the day to get images during the “hour of magic” shortly before sunset and as the sun faded away.

Here’s what Kuhu has to say:

“Hi I am Kuhu. I am a non-binary trans person. I have been out for more than 2 years now. I am so glad that I finally took the courage to live my life in an authentic way. Being a woman truly makes me happy, calm and content. Thank you Beth for capturing these beautiful moments of my feminine side and expression with her makeup and photography skills.” Kuhu invites you to follow her on Instagram at @kuhus.diaries

Nikki Rose, A Country Girl

Nikki Rose, A Country Girl

Nikki and I had so much fun at her four hour total makeover and photoshoot. She brought her own outfits and wig, and we listened to country music. She showed me inspiration photos for makeup on her iPhone and texted me the three best ones so that we could create just the look she was going for from my makeup kit. We took photos in my backyard and in my photo studio against an exposed brick wall.

From Nikki: “Hi, my name is Nikki. I’m a part-time girl! I love to spend my free time in girl mode and have been for the past six years. I’m 23-years-old and slowly becoming more confident in my feminine self. And now that I know what I could look like courtesy of Elizabeth Taylor, I have the upmost confidence I can perfect my girl mode.” Nikki is on Instagram and invites you to follow her at @nikki_rose_24.

My makeover studio is located in Takoma Park, Maryland in the Mid-Atlantic United States. I regularly see clients from Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, and North Carolina along with clients from throughout the US and the world.

It’s party time! Join the DC Trans Ladies for our Fall Soiree in Bethesda, Oct. 15!

It’s party time! Join the DC Trans Ladies for our Fall Soiree in Bethesda, Oct. 15!

Hi ladies! I know you all have been asking for another event so I’m excited to announce that the Bethesdan Hotel has reopened their restaurant and is eager to have us return for our signature Soiree! So assemble your favorite fall outfit (boots anyone?) and join us at our Fall Soiree in bustling downtown Bethesda, Maryland on Saturday, October 15! We will be having dinner at 7 p.m. and hanging out at the bar, lounge, and restaurant areas ’til the bar closes around 11 pm. Crash at the hotel, and be sure to book using our discounted group rate of $119.

The Bethesdan Hotel hosted the DC Trans Ladies at the Saint Patrick’s Day Soiree in 2019.

At our signature soirees, we invite trans-women, their partners, and friends to socialize, network, and relax. We encourage new girls to come out to help boost their confidence and garner tips from those more experienced. And of course, we love having our regulars come out too!

If you haven’t joined the DC Trans Ladies Meetup group yet, this would be a great time to do so if you are a trans-woman, an MtF crossdresser, or genderfluid! (Men are not accepted as members but are welcome at events as guests of members.) We have active members from their twenties into their seventies, and we’d love to have you join us.

If you’re not feeling ready for girl mode in public, you are still welcome to attend in guy mode. Upon arrival, introduce yourself as a member to the hosts, and we will welcome you warmly. Please consider joining us at the Soiree Dinner in the hotel’s dining room. It is an opportunity to sit with your sisters and get to know them.

RSVP to the Soiree dinner here: https://www.meetup.com/dc-transladies-community/events/288362699/

RSVP to the post-dinner Soiree here: https://www.meetup.com/dc-transladies-community/events/288362761/

The Bethesdan hotel staff is delighted to have us, and to demonstrate their appreciation they’ve set up a special room rate of $119/night and discounted event parking. Visit the Meetup events, above, for the booking link and to check out all the event details.

If you’re looking to get your Soiree makeup professionally applied, I will be offering makeup makeovers at my studio in Takoma Park, MD.

Bring your smartphones and cameras, and take pics to share on our meetup site.

We look forward to seeing you all at our Fall Soiree!

Meet Sabrina!

Meet Sabrina!

Sabrina and I had a great time at her makeover and photoshoot this weekend. She brought two outfits: a red, shoulder-baring blouse with shiny, black leggings and a black, crop top paired with a long, black skirt with leg-flaunting slits.

She selected deep, red eye shadows from the MAC Flameboyant Palette and a vivid, orange lipstick to pair with her red blouse. For hair, she started with her natural hair. Then she tried on several wigs before settling on an ombré-auburn, long, curly wig from Joi Wigs in Springfield, Virginia.

Sabrina is a dedicated athlete and a repeat client.
