I think I'm getting good at my make-up. Any suggestions?

It looks nicefrom what i can see. Its subtle and doesnt look overdone. :)

Just a random tip, face/eye primers are good to have your makeup stay on for long busy days. Hydrating day creams are key for smoother application of foundation.

Rea,

I was too busy staring at the beautiful woman in those pictures to even notice any make up. I mean wow o.o you look gorgeous! You've got such a great smile!

It's been a while since I've put on any make up myself so I can't really offer any tips. I just wanted to say you look great!

*Hugs*

I wear a darker line under the eyes. I think your eyes would come out a little with a darker line. Mascara would help too.

I am not a fan of red lipstick, but that's me. Some girls look great in it, but the bronzier colors look better. You have nice lips so you can pull it off.

Very pretty.

Can you get a clearer picture?

Thanks so much for the complements and suggestions.

Autumn,

I was using my phone camera. It kinda stinks as you can tell from the poor quality. I can use my digital camera tomorrow and post some clearer pictures. Thanks for the tips. I'm not that keen on red lipstick either, but for some reason that color looked hot when I put it on. lol

It's been fun experimenting and finding my style.

Unless its just how you are aiming the camera, you may want to go half a shade darker on you foundation since your neck is much darker than the face area, although the hair color and foundation work well, thats why I say only a little more on the beige side. Also, work the foundation onto your under chin and neck to help too. My coloration and complexion are actually close to yours and I tend to either go for a Bordeaux or a Coral lipststick. You have NOT overdone the eye shadow and for that I congratulate you. Autumn's suggestion about the mascara (for which black is OK), but black is not a good choice for the under eye liner with your hair color,

I'm going to post some more pic's today. I wanted to know about any suggestions for my eyes. I have Grey/Green or Grey/Blue hazel eyes. Depends on my mood among other things how my eyes change color. So any tips would be great!

Thanks

I'm not sure if these links will be allowed since they're not trans related. If the Moderators need to remove them you can just good, "Best Eyeshadow for grey eyes" and the article will come up. There may also be articles on grey blue and grey green eyes as well.

and unfortunately I didn't find anything worth bugging a mod over for gray-green eyes. Do a web search and see what comes up though. I've learned a lot about different eye shadows for my green eyes.

Hope this helps. Good luck Rea!

Okay, I need new makeup. I have been watching these YouTube video's by Kandee Johnson and discovered that I need to get a few more things. Having hazel eyes is a little different, because my wifeband :P and I don't share the same color pallet. I need to go shopping. oh Darn!

I have noticed that natural tones for eye shadow works best for me and to play around with different colored eyeliner. Applying eyeliner in different way can bring out the eyes and just have neutral or natural colored shadow so it doesn't look overdone. Like change it up and put a light color on the wet line and a darker color (preferably not black) on the lash line and try choosing a colors to go with what you are wearing.

So these video's that Kandee makes are pretty good. She has a lot of tips for blending colors on your cheeks too, I love these.

I have noticed MAC is very trans-woman friendly. Every time I go the the mall I see that MAC has no problem employing some of our sisters. I think that is very cool and for that I will be checking them out first. Plus they have some really cool stuff that I want. lol

Anyway I will post some pic's after I get the right items and have a little practice. I don't want to scare anyone.

      Welcome, Tali. I'm so glad you found the courage to say hello to TransPulse. I hope you find this a welcoming and informative place, and a safe place to just be yourself. I also have social anxiety and have found life my complicated with my transgender issues. But, I have found support here, and I'm fortunate to have a few people in my life who accept me. I hope you also find the support you want/need as you make your journey, which will provide happiness too. The happiness will come!!   Gwen

      It sounds like you have a good plan for the future and are getting through the present difficulties with a grace that deserves praise.  I remember the humiliation of being called by my male name in crowded waiting rooms.  Those times were instrumental in getting me to make the necessary steps to change my legal status. HRT and living as yourself are certainly major steps along your journey as is finding a style that works well and makes you feel comfortable as yourself. Thanks for the update and happy birthday!   Hugs,   Charlize

        Hi Mary,   I have slightly more than 20 good trans female friends that I speak with on at least a weekly basis. I have never felt alone and if I really need someone to talk to there is always someone nearby. My friends situation is very different. Don't know what the stats are but there appear to be far less FTM than MTF humans out there. That is stating the friend situation only for him. Now, since he's attracted to cis females, the numbers diminish even further. No clue for how many cis women are looking for transmales  but the number seems to be like really really low. So, to me, online dating is a no brainer.  I've checked a few places and the suggestions on dating sites are not many.   Good for you doing the online dating thing. I as well think we should be up front about who we are and I also think it can be safe providing that common sense is used       I really appreciate your view,   Tess

        Thanks Vicky. Some people like very much to be part of a couple, me being one of them. Good luck at your weddings!!!

      Hi Tali, one thing that helped me was getting out of the house and meeting others. My family members all responded differently  to it. My nephews were pretty much a shrug. It took time for some to come to terms with it too.   Welcome to Transpulse!  hugs, Marcie
