So I am new here and have been exploring the site and posts.  Just wanted to say you look beautiful with minimal makeup.  For me I have a long way to go before I could get away with it ..of course even with makeup I don’t look great cause it’s a skill I’m just learning !

Welcome!  Yes it's a skill but less is more FYI.  If you have a Sephora nearby, they will teach you. Transfriendly biz. There's a couple makeup threads on here that might be helpful. 

 

Liz, that looks great.  And I see your wife hasn't venture to far away from you pallette ;)

There is a Sephora inside a JC Penney close by…just go in and ask for help?

You might have to check the app and look for classes. A lot of their stuff is remote right now (at least where I'm at).

 

Hugs!

At the very least, they can help you find the colors that work for you. That's half the battle.  They're expensive though. Start with a powder foundation, maybe a "finish kit" to apply over that and eyebrow pencil if you need to darken them. Oh, color corrector if you have any beard shadow.  Either that or find a mary kay person who's trans friendly. I might do a quick video on how I do my minimalist  "natural look" makeup.  I spent about $300 at sephora almost a year ago. I only put makeup on a couple times a week at most. Most of those times it's just foundation, eye shadow and mascara. If I'm going out and want a more glam look I will add the brows, some bronzer/finishing powders and lipstick. Since I wear a mask everywhere nowadays, lipstick and contouring kinda stuff is wasted.  The only thing I've needed to replace is my brow pencil because my hair is so light you can't really make them out without it.

Sadly, it being xmas, and family friends every day, "I've" been locked away in the wardrobe for 10 days.  Can't wait for January 3rd.

Hey everyone! This is what I wore on New Year’s Eve for my big night out.

And this is roughly what I wore on New Years Day when I couldn’t bear to (pretend to) be a boy again and decided to go to MONA gallery in Hobart. This was my first ever day outing as Bette/Betty. I made friends! It was wonderful.

(I wore sneakers again on New Years Day though, so as not to get gallery feet.)

 

This is me living my dream of having coffee at a cafe in a dress:

One more: this is me at my (cisgender male) friend’s house in Hobart, where I stayed the last two nights. He was so supportive and his teenage children were absolutely respectful, calling me “she/her” and Bette. I have a great friend in his daughter, I think. My heart is full ❤️❤️❤️

Happy New Year everyone. I know I don’t post here often. I have been a bit shy to because I felt my transition was going so slowly. (Sometimes I even questioned if I would transition after all.) But I love this forum and I thank you all for sharing and existing. When I am confused I often look here to find answers and I am never disappointed by the wisdom and helpful facts I find.

 

Again, thanks.

 

Humbly,

Bette

That reminds me. Mom shared a secret about tights that I thought I'd share with all of my sisters who find themselves as women who never got to be girls. If your tights ride down? They're too big. Go down a size. I'm currently wearing mediums and they're staying up just fine (same cut as the ones you modeled a couple days back Liz).

 

Hugs!

Great info Jackie C.

One of the very first cis gender girl friends/shopping partners taught me that as well. That applies to leggings as well.

Due to last night's snow fall I had to go run the snowblower. I decided to wear black for contrast.

That’s the best contrast, and it looks good.

Ain't that the truth. I found out the uncomfortable way when the weather finally got chilly enough to wear my new pair on a short run. Constantly having to pull up the waist band. Not a fun run.

      @Mmindy that’s the exact same percolator I’ve got!

      You have only a single post here, it takes five posts to open up certain features.  When you get the five, you do it from a link on your Profile page.  I do not really know about phones and how to navigate them.  @Petra Jane is our computer guru.

      My life story is pretty odd.  Never had a relationship until my mid 20's.  Now I'm in my early 30's and I live in a committed relationship with multiple partners.  Growing up, my family had a lot of expectations for me that I was never able to meet.  I guess I'm going through the questioning I should have been able to do more freely earlier in my life.  So that's why I'm here...trying to make some sense out of my feelings, my body, and my relationships.

      Willow, I will always keep an old fashion stovetop coffee percolator. I have two at home, and one in the camper. I may be without gas or electric, but I’ll never be without a functioning coffee maker.

      Understanding that, since I don't necessarily have that much time left on this rock, I need to live it as me. Put to music, "I enjoy being a girl," and "I gotta be me. I gotta be me. What else can I be but what I am."

      Hi, meeting with another lawyer tomorrow.  We’ll see how that goes.  Our daughter is also supposed to be coming here to a campground for the weekend.  We’ll see if she makes any contact with us.   Kymmie, I don’t know what to say.  I’ve been through similar things as well.  I never know what she is thinking.  It’s ok, then it’s not ok.  I hope your sons birthday goes well.  Our sons birthday is the 29th.   Jandi, we are using a very basic coffee maker.  Put water in, put a pod in and press start.  One cup at a time.  And if we are away from the dock I have a percolator.  Old school!  I have used Folgers and Maxwell House. But not instant coffee!     Willow

      In a true homage to reading other peoples experiences and taking notes (thank you Kelly(particularly) but also et al) I have over the last couple of of days ‘come out’ to my business. I am a senior manager at company employing 1.5k, with a team of 22 that are my directs I had spoken to my Md some weeks ago about my transitioning, how it was early days, and tbh, soft soaped her about how wonderful it was to be working in a company that, whilst I knew it was going to be difficult, was forward thinking enough to be able embrace and (be seen to be able to) empower members of the lgbt community . She was keen to manage my becoming visible across the business, however I thought it was right that I should personally ‘come out’ to especially my team, but also my closest colleagues. We agreed that as soon as I started telling people, the likelihood of gossip (and therefore our ability to curtail the ‘ridicule factor’) would increase. So over the space of Tuesday afternoon and the whole of Wednesday (which was also the day my name officially changed to Dee (yeah..not Alice…long story)) I was allocated an interview room and ‘came out’ on an individual basis to 36 people - in an order that I had created on a scale of ‘can be trusted to keep their mouth shut (and thumbs off their keypad) to ‘gossip-monger in chief’ - just prior to a meeting at 4pm where the MD would announce my transition and explain to all the other senior managers what was expected of them in relation to ensuring respect from their respective teams etc.   I can happily report that (with the exception of 2 morons(whose life will henceforth be made a misery)), I received support, intelligent questions, generosity and predominately respect for the guts it takes not only to decide that you need to take control of where your life is heading, but also to look people in the eye and say ‘I didn’t want you to hear this from someone else’ (It also gives you the opportunity to mould their mindset in respect of ‘seeker of peace and happiness’ vs ‘deviant’)   Dont be afraid of this once you are sure , whilst it was emotionally exhausting bearing my soul (because you do have to to every question they ask), I staggered out of work last night with a refreshed view of the majority of peoples acceptance and enthusiasm to accept something ‘a bit different’ I get that it is early days with this situation in the workplace, but I have come out of it with a truly positive mindset.   Thanks for the inspiration ladies😊❤️😊❤️

      Honestly, food and coffee, sometimes tea. Mostly I'm just stubborn but lost a lot over time and finding it harder.
