Cheers to a Girly Weekend!

What a fun weekend! Here’s my weekend in a nutshell: transformation makeover, makeup party, Freddie’s with the girls, makeup makeover outcall, makeup makeover plus dressing tips/assistance, tgirlnation, makeover studio updates, and transformation makeover all from Friday to Sunday. What a blast!

Makeup Party: I absolutely loved my makeup party! All five girls who RSVP’d showed up and practiced their skincare and makeup. One girl came out to an event for the first time ever with the exception of a one-on-one makeover with me. She borrowed an outfit and wig for the party since she’s still waiting for her girly items to arrive.

We went through skin care and beard coverage and then moved on to color application. The girls loved using the Sunny Citrus lipstick to neutralize their beard shadow instead of the yellow concealer that I offer as a less-aggressive option. Once we got to the eyes, I checked each girl’s progress and gave them tips on how to improve their look and complimented their handiwork. The most common problem: Girls would apply eyeshadow or eyeliner only about halfway or 3/4 of the way across their eyelid, skipping the outer corner. Once corrected, the girls caught on. 🙂 We all tried the Lash Love Lengthening Mascara, my new favorite mascara, and my first time demoing it at a party. Next we moved on to blush, bronzer, and highlight power to create the illusion of a round, full cheeks. Finally, we picked out lipstick colors and applied them.

Following snacks, three of us went to Freddie’s Beach Bar to watch karaoke and hang out in a safe, accepting, and comfortable environment. 🙂

tgirlnation: I arrived at tgirlnation quite late at almost 11 p.m. after completing two makeovers to prep girls for the party. 🙂 As soon as I walked in, I saw girls everywhere that I knew! How fun is that! tgirlnation and the DC Trans-Ladies MeetUp group are really starting to feel like a fabulous extended family! As soon I walked in, Brandy, Destiny, and Pamela greeted me and showered me with hugs. Next up, I saw Rhonda and Sarah and that means more big hugs! I love Rhonda’s positive and fun outlook on life. The first time I met her she told me a story about swimming in a lake in full femme attire and losing her wig! I first met Sarah at tgirlnation in March, and I count her as a good friend. 🙂 From there, I saw Lynette and Giselle, both of whom I made over for the event. 🙂 From there, the night turned into a whirlwind of greeting and catching up with friends, acquaintances, and newcomers. So much fun! If you haven’t been to tgirlnation, you should check it out!

Makeup and Corset Party plus After-Party!

Last week I held a makeup and corset party for trans-ladies and allies. My standard makeover party has focused on skin care and makeup using Mary Kay products and teaching girls how to apply their makeup. This party had another core theme: body shapers.

Girls began arriving an hour early to get fitted for corsets and panty shapers to give them a beautiful hourglass look and rounded derriere. The Ardyss shapers gave immediate results, flattening tummies, pulling in waists by 2-3 sizes, rounding the buttocks, and creating a beautiful, feminine figure. The girls wore the shapers throughout the entire makeup party and were definitely disappointed to take them off at the end of the night.

After we had all put on our makeup and enjoyed apple pie, hummus and pita, all six of us decided to go to Freddie’s Beach Bar (http://freddiesbeachbar.com/) in Crystal City including the girl who had never been out of her house dressed before! We strolled into Freddie’s with confidence and sat at a large hightop table near the bar. Another couple of friends joined us and we totally had fun chilling with our group of the evening until the lights came on and we returned to our homes.

This particular group of girls totally clicked with each other. The girls were super affirming, supporting, and accepting of each other. I loved that they helped build each other’s confidence to go out in public to Freddie’s.

To another fabulous evening!

Makeup Parties for Trans-Ladies

I love my girls and helping them look and feel beautiful. I’ve hosted several makeup parties with four to six guests. Two have been specifically for trans-women and allies. We learned about and applied anti-aging skin care, matched foundation shades, covered various hues and intensities of beard shadows, and created a basic makeup look. For cis-girls, many beauty consultants use a “face race” to see who can apply their color the fastest and reward speed.

Speed doesn’t work in my trans-world–in fact, this makeup application process is where I get to do the most teaching. At a recent party, the girls selected one of four different looks, each of which had directions for how to apply the color. I helped the girls choose their looks and get started. One girl had very deep-set eyes and so I recommended skipping the darkest eyeshadow color or just using it on the outermost part of the eyelid. Another girl was super cute and bubbly. She was already wearing a bright pink lipstick that suited her outfit and attitude perfectly, so I encouraged her to keep that as part of her 80s look. She applied the rest of her makeup with relative ease. The third girl is working on a natural look since she is planning to go full-time. She applies her eyeliner impeccably and proudly tells me that she’s been practicing with the help of her sisters. The fourth was totally thrilled that she successfully covered her beard shadow and set to work on a dramatic eye look.

After we all finish, we take fun, silly, and flirty photos in my hallway. I wish I could share them with you all but my girls’ privacy and safety is important. I have a client who recently walked in her neighborhood during the day alone and was quickly taunted with “go to hell” and worse from a passersby. She told me she won’t be walking alone in her neighborhood anytime soon. Less than a month earlier, she walked outside dressed and in makeup for the first time ever (I accompanied her and took photos for her). I felt so proud to be with her as she developed confidence in herself.

I hope I can help change our culture so more people accept and appreciate us for who we are regardless of our gender identity or gender presentation.

To being fabulous!
