Hi there everyone,

Can someone who has a seriously bad five o clock shadow on their cheeks please tell me what they use to cover it up. I am currently trying the orange lipstick base with the pan stick and then powder over the top look but it does not look right, it looks too heavy and you can still kind of see a vague impression of the blue below the skin. I have also tried the same method but then applying other foundation over the top which i find rubs off the original stuff and makes the shadow more visible. I am wanting to go full time within the net 8 weeks and if i do not find something i may have to delay this slightly until i get it sorted, which i really do not want to do.

Any advice would be really helpful, i am from the UK so if anyone knows any local products it would help a lot, but i do not mind ordering from over sea if it means i can cover this up.

Also, i know you can not give advice as such, but does anyone know if you need to see a hormone specialist to get AntiAdrodgens (T-Blockers) or can you get them prescribed from your doctor. I am starting with my gender councilor on the 7th of March and i know i can not get Hormones earlier and i am not stupid enough to order them online, but if i could get the TBlockers off my doctor that would be a real help.

All my love and hope you are all doing ok

Amy <3

I had laser done to get rid of the beard and stash. I took this picture this morning and if you look, you can still see some stash. I went right after to get the laser done, ouch

I don't know anything that covers that does not look thick and packed.

Best of luck

In the meanwhile,

I use dermablend products from Vichy. They are quite expensive though. But you need to match the skin color...

For me, not orange but crimson red... But before that, I use ultra-corrective foundation stick one the shadow part. Those products have a lot of color pigmentation 'cause they are made for person with scars or port-wine stains for example...

Then I use some lip stick only on the shadow part also.

Than, some corrective foundation all over... but not too much... !!! just for uniformity...

The secret I think is to have bronzing powder with different shades to sculpt your traits ... and and the same time to blend everything together... your neck and all...

Difficult to explain... I think it is a question of practice... to get the right dosage... enough but not too much...

With the darker shades you emphasize part of your face that you want to look smaller... sides of the chin for example or sides of the jaw... but also, paradoxically, the cheeks, which will look like being more preeminent... it is a question of perspective... and of nuance... not too much, just enough...

Yes laser is the way to go. I just had my last session, switching to electrolosys to get the gray ones. My profile pic is from Dec 3rd 2011.

      Sad to say, this is running about the same as it is here in the U.S. and may not be as bad in a couple of places, but still it is pretty bad overall.  Great Britain has about the same stats on H8ers, minus the KKK of course, but the Fundamentalist and Roman Catholic influences are used as the same excuses to just plain hate from what I have heard.

      https://inews.co.uk/news/uk/third-transgender-people-victim-hate-crime/   This is very troubling, but given the very negative press and public opinions, hardly surprising.  The question is, what, if anything, will be done about it?   Carolyn Marie

      Seat belts are not required but highly advised.  Actually i took me time to feel much and even then changes were slow and subtle.  Enjoy your journey!   Hugs,   Charlize

      Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.    Hugs    Shawnna

      My GP finally received the confirmation from Daventry GIC to prescribe hormones for me. I'll be on leuprorelin injections to stop production of T and estradiol valerate tablets. Shame I have to wait until after the weekend for the pharmacy to get them in, but I've waited this long so a few more days don't matter too much. Looks like I'll be on HRT in time for my 46th birthday on Wednesday.

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess
