Multiply your results by say, 100, and you come close to my best time, and I still fudge it up. I look like an steam punk raccoon when I'm done. You did well, now how about coming up to my area and showing me how you do it! ;)

I do the daily fire drill in about twenty minutes. I can't go to work as anything other than female and I still need a lot of help. Everything else about my presentation clues me as female, so make-up is only a small, but required part. Seems almost like I have been doing it all my life. Not so, just a couple of years really and not daily to start.

Now weekend events are another deal all together. Lavish bubble bath, skin, hair, nails, about three outfit changes to get the fit. Many accessory changes to get the look all together. Music and dancing too. I love being a girl, so don't mess with my get pretty time. Giggle. Then step out in the world. Everybody knows Jody loves to make a girly-girl entrance! Life is good, babe!

I also learned a huge amount of tricks from other working Moms. Soon, it just comes as second nature. Hug. JodyAnn

I used to time my makeup routine, too. It started at an hour, then as I got my routine down and into a groove I got it down to 30 minutes.

Now that I'm done with laser and can eliminate a few extra steps I'm down to 15 minutes.

Putting on male-up is very difficult for me but I am getting better at it. Mascara is the most difficult and sometimes painful part for me when the tears start...what a mess! If I don't mess up too bad I can usually finish in about 30 minutes, doing my hair is a whole nother story. What truly shocked me when I started to get really serious about my fem look was how EXPENSIVE make-up can be. SIGH oh well gotta have it!

Mascara was one of the products that took me the longest to get comfortable applying because I wasn't used to having anything that close to my eye. Granted I had a few mistakes and poked myself but I got over it and kept on trying.

I have very short lashes so I use a few distracting tricks. I start with my favorite eye shadows blended with a very soft artist brush for the smoky eye look. I like copper and gold. Then I use Maybelline Eye Studio Charcoal gel eye liner, that tiny jar has lasted forever! Then a line of Eye Studio Duo, Teal liquid eye liner. While that is wet I use Eye Drama Rockin Rose liquid upper eye liner. It is a pale pink glitter. I use that little brush to pull some of the teal color up also bringing the glitter up into the gold. It make a really nice transition. I place a touch of glitter below my eyes for effect. Then I top it off with my Wet & Wild Color Up pink mascara. All I need is to tip the lashes to make them pop! I get huge compliments on my eyes and they last all day and into the night. It may sound busy or gaudy, but done corectly, the effects are very subtle and elegant.

Also, I found out how expensive cheap make-up is. I burned through it like rocket fuel. Go to an Ulta store, the candy store from heaven. Buy the better quaility stuff, money well spent. It lasts longer in use, easier to apply, nicer effects and seems to have much more in the containers. You can paint your portrait in your mirror, like a famous artist. Giggle. Hug. JodyAnn

Ive spent more on makeup in last 6 months than on any personal products in my entire life!!! Sigh, :lol:

Im getting quite good with my eyes now, but having said that I still poke myself in the eyes from time to time, like last night. :)

Hi all,

Even though I am getting better at the whole thing and can do it quite fast if needed, sometimes I can look in the mirror and think, Hey not bad. Other times I think jeeze Im so ugly and back off it all comes.

Hugs

Rachel.

      I think it's finding what suits you best. I have never got on with boyshorts at all. Not being over there, I won't go into brands but, in general, I have found quality panties better. Obviously womenswear is only designed to cover a small bulge so tucking is really essential.   I tend to wear bikini, hi-leg or full brief dependant on situation, how I am feeling or what I am wearing.   Tracy

      Thanks Charlize and everyone. I’ve done two days. The medication helps a lot.
    • mini
      thank all of you  for the splendid advice    
    • mini
      hello   i appreciate the advice as i was having a terrible time tucking and staying in place especially walking they were always slipping out or never in proper place.  I will be taking the tips and trying them out in the morning . I was afraid to try tape as hair would be pulled out. I will be trying the pull from behind and panty method as well as other great advice.    I do have one other question and that is going to gym as i am not allowed to use the other gym so how do i get used to being comfortable in those situations.

      I am not really sure where this is headed just now, but it does underscore the need for understanding of what and who Trans people are.  The mythology and the fantasy about us needs to be fully bashed out of some heads and replaced with better stuff.

      One of my psychology professors years ago liked to tell us that most M.D.s did not fully earn the Doctor part of their degrees, and they really should get a degree of Body Mechanic (BM) and I think he may have had it right in this case.  The guy knows the physical configuration of the human brain expertly as a technician but his ability to actually reason with his own brain on non technical matters is up for conjecture.

      Greetings Markjvp.  Your intro was fine.  Telling our family, especially at a young age is fraught with peril so I can relate to your story.  I am guessing you are about 16 so you still have some time to go before you graduate High School and can move out on your own, or go to college.  I know the time seems long, but in reality it's not.  Focus on your education as it will sustain you for the rest of your life.     As to starting transition, if that is your goal, a couple years will not make a huge difference.  You want to remain at home where you have a roof over your head and meals to eat.  Don't do anything rash.  Your family may or may not ever get "fixed" as this is their choice to understand.  Your choice is to be the best you that you can be.  Look around there are other stories like yours here.     Cheers, Jani
    • Jani
      This is so good to read that you have found the way to sobriety that suits you.  You have so much to be happy and grateful for, especially for the inner strength you posses.  Yeah for you!  You will get over your shyness and insecurity in due time.  I believe in you.  Your sponsor sounds like a caring person.     Hugs, Jani
