I love working and seeing my clients again!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to touch base and let you know that I am absolutely loving being back at work in my studio! It’s been seven weeks now, and I’m optimistic that I will be able to stay open long-term based on the Maryland and Montgomery County guidelines.

You all have been booking appointments and getting pampered with makeovers, photoshoots, makeup lessons, and outings. And we have had so much fun! We’ve gone wig shopping at Joi Wigs. We’ve walked through downtown Takoma Park and chatted over coffee and dinner  at Busboys and Poets in the afternoon sun. We’ve enjoyed dinner at Republic Restaurant in their spacious booths.

And more good news! Freddie’s Beach Bar is now open seven days a week from 4 p.m. til 2 a.m.! They had been closed on Mondays and Tuesdays until last week. This means more options for outings!

For those of you who had booked a session this spring that we had to cancel due to COVID restrictions, please reach out to me by email at elizabeth.taylor.makeover@gmail.com to rebook whenever you are ready. You can check out my current safety guidelines here.

I look forward to seeing you all again!

Beth Taylor

Join us for live music by Swampoodle at Paradise Springs Winery!

Join us for live music by Swampoodle at Paradise Springs Winery!

Join the DC Trans Ladies Meetup group for live, acoustic music by Swampoodle at Paradise Springs Winery in Clifton, Virginia on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 2-6 p.m. We will be in the adults-only back room.

Paradise Springs makes some of the best wine in Virginia and is located in Fairfax County less than an hour from downtown DC. Buy wine by the glass or bottle and snacks like cheese and deli meat from the winery. If you don’t drink, you can still join us and buy snacks to support the winery.

The band: Swampoodle plays eclectic Americana tunes. Many of you have met Steph Nelson, lead vocalist. Our own Giselle Donnelly (Beth’s wife) plays guitar and sings tenor. Steve sings and plays guitar, harmonica, and more. Eric Todd is on bass.

Logistics: There’s plenty of free parking at the winery. The parking lot is gravel so sensible shoes are recommended. Paradise Springs is located at 13219 Yates Ford Rd, Clifton, VA. We will be in the back room of the winery with the band.

Attire: This is a daytime event at a mainstream venue with families present so please take this into account when planning your look. Pants, a top, jacket, and flats/sneakers/boots would fit right in.

Guests: Guests are welcomed and encouraged regardless of gender.

Makeup tutorial tonight!

Makeup tutorial tonight!

Join me for a Facebook Live makeup video tonight at 6 p.m. EST. I’ll be doing my own makeup and talking you through the process along with issues that you all have brought up and that I’ve seen in the studio. In particular, I’ll be covering skin care, makeup 101, contouring, and eye makeup. I’ll be focusing on a look that’s more on the natural side. (For dramatic looks, I have several archived facebook makeup tutorials that focus on intense smokey eyes, dramatic lips, etc.)

You can join in at my personal facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ElizabethAnneTaylor1

Update: You can view tonight’s makeup video at https://www.facebook.com/ElizabethAnneTaylor1/videos/10158079682177360/

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.
