I need constructive criticism.

I'm new here and trying to figure everything out. I've never done makeup before a couple weeks ago, so I don't really know what I'm doing. I'm not 100% happy with the results, so I need some advice from you legends. Thanks!

I think you look very nice. Maybe try to do a smidge lighter on make up. I honestly think you look great and i would tell you if you didnt look good

Thank you so much. Do you mean lighter tones, lighter application, or cutting back on application area? Sorry if it's obvious, but I'm not great at these things

Just a tint bit light application but honestly i think you look great. I dont think i could do any better

Hi spooder, pleased to meet you :) For less than a couple of weeks the makeup is fantastic and it is easy to see the look you are going for, you also have brilliant cheeks so keep smiling! In the interests of being constructive I agree with SydneyBlue in that you do not need to be quite so heavy handed with the lippy, shaping can come later if you want to emphasise the top lip more, advice I have seen online for the cats eye flick is to imagine a straight line drawn from the bottom curve of your eye towards the edge of your eye brow instead of flicking from the top of the eye as it looks better (apparently - I am still learning eye liner).

First, Great color choices!!! Plenty of practice and trying new thoughts are critical to success. Anything you see this time, that you felt could have gone better, will give you new ideas for the future. I watch a lot of youtube makeup tutorials just to get ideas. ~Abi~

Thank you! I've been doing the same. Eyeshadow is the hardest part for me currently. I also wish I could really transform my face shape with contouring.

These are great tips. Thank you so much. I actually tried going lighter on the lipstick a little bit ago, and the results did look better. 

Eyeliner is just difficult for me in general. I'm getting better, but I can't use the crayon at all.

Okay. I know some people don't really like this question, but I have to ask for my own peace-of-mind. How passable am I?

I think it depends on the whole package -- shape, grace, voice etc -- but there are a lot of very much more knowledgeable girls on this forum. 

I have never understood the role makeup plays in a pretty girl's look. Ever check the prices? It it made of some exotic minerals found only on incoming asteroids? Every woman -- cis and transitioned -- I've ever known says the same thing. "Go light, barely noticeable, especially during the day."

Um... Ok, but why pay so much for something you are trying nearly to disappear? It's all good, though. To me, exploring femininity is like Star Trek. "Boldly go where no man has ever gone before" -- to galaxy "Femme" and the women who have gone before.

-- Cheers

      Hi @breee   I've been on the patch for over 40 months now and the instructions on mine say lower abdomen and butt are the best places. I've heard of trans women saying they tried them on their shoulders but didn't see as good of results.   This being said, whatever the instructions that come with the Estradiol patches tell you I would do.   I hope that helps. Welcome to the forum!   ~ Cinda

      I am 58 , on HRT for over 2yrs., full time, single. Been trying to get my surgeries going before I hit 60. But finding it extremely difficult with my current PPO . My dilemma  is that I am alone and I  keep seen a future of loneliness. And I fear that when I finally get my ffs, VP I will be to old to enjoy the dream and not be able to find that special someone. SO what's the point..

      i am wondering if anyone has had different experiences with placing the patch in certain areas of your body? does it really matter? 
    • KatieP
      OMG, Sally!!!   Your post hits me right in the... heart!!!   And, I would like to maybe disagree with your comment that, "I know this isn't probably an issue for those of you living your preferred gender full-time..."   I am older than you, and I AM full time, everywhere. And I worry about this SOOOOO much. In fact, I would say that the surgeries I have had are ALL in response to my thoughts on this point. I have watched my Father-in-Law in his Memory Care unit. He is doing fine, but mostly doesn't recall even his name. If I were in that place, and unable to advocate for myself, what would the people in MY old folk's home treat me like? Probably by that time, I won't care at all. But I still think that I want them to see female when they change MY diapers, and that they hear female, no matter how hard I try or not.   While this may sound a bit morbid, I think that by preparing for my possible future I have ALSO made my current present MUCH better, as it has turned out.   In your case, not being full time, I am thinking such choices might be even harder. I feel for you, even more because of this difficulty...   Katie

      hi. from my person experience and the many things ive read here and there when you are transitioning soo many people want to look like a woman, like how you feel. my change came easy to me on account of something i read that sunk in. it went something like this.. its not how you present on the outside but more of how you feel on the inside, because the outside will come as you grow into your new self. i found this very insightful for myself as i was trying to do all things at once, dress, look, walk, talk...yeesh too much lol. start slow..baby steps. change clothing style and wear out in public..people dont notice but you will. wear some low heels with long pants things like that. after a couple of years i was presenting as a full time woman..myself. then i went on hrt. it fit perfectly. tip: make very subtle changes and people wont even notice. trust me it took my sister a year to figure out i had been changing because i did things soo slow...eyebrows, light makeup just a little at atime and before long it felt natural for me to present this way and made me soo confident that i began to not even care what people thought if i did get clocked. ps kids are the most observant of all! i can go on and on with tips i used. look me up if you like..chow..

      I switched from boxers to boxer briefs for packing purposes several months ago. I found that i prefer the fit of the latter, and I now pack on a somewhat regular basis, but I've had some "slippage." It's been more annoying than I huge issue, but I want to avoid it if possible when my college starts back next week (Jan. 26th) . (I tried trunks, but I don't like the short legs). I know that getting an actual harness is the best option, but I don't have the time to wait on one to arrive in the mail. That's why I'm thinking of trying a jock strap under my boxer briefs because I can buy them locally. I was wondering if anyone has used them for this purpose before, and if y'all think this might be a possible solution.

      That's really a wonderful story to read; not the attack, of course, but the community response.  Hopefully the victim will take heart knowing that she has friends in the community.  The attackers need to be punished, for sure.   Carolyn Marie

      I always just call but sometime I have to call a couple of times to get through. My last few appointments have been done tele-health and I was able to get blood work done out by me. They're over an hour from me so I do understand the drive to get there. When I made my first appointment they did ask if I had a preferred name, that's when the name Elizabeth chose me. They're good people there. No one has ever questioned or looked at me strange. Just made me feel normal.
