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.

      Well, if dad is paying for it, I guess he has some say so on the issue, but little does he know how fun some Enby's can be.  If he gets to know a few -------- but I guess he won't.  His loss entirely.  I feel bad, but for now you are having the right attitude about it.

      Beautiful photo. In a couple of weeks, it should be sunny like that once the June gloom is gone.

      Naturally, I've been wondering whether there are any entries in the 63 pages (currently) of this thread that involve a Rubber Chicken.   Search claims that to not be the case, but I have my doubts, given the stealthiness of Rubber Chickens, and how friends have surprised me with them! 🙂   Astrid

      (Disclaimer: I am not out to my family because they are against anything LGBTQ related)   So it was a normal family dinner with me and my family sitting down to some dang good soup I'd slaved over today. The topic of conversation? My wedding. Personally, I'd like to get married someday, so I was joking with my brother that because he wasn't being nice to me that he was no longer invited.   Then, suddenly, out of the blue, my father chimes in with: "You can't invite any nonbinary people".   I'm silent out of shock (Because how does he even know that word!?!?!?) The rest of my family are silent, but soon start asking questions.   Turns out, he'd seen on the news today that Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye came out as nonbinary.  I probably should have found it hurtful, or have been scared, but to be honest, I just laughed. Even if it was an inappropriate moment to do so.  Because he said that to me, who identifies as a nonbinary gender. Who would be the one of the two people that the wedding is all about. God, if he knew. 😅 Guess I'm not allowed to be invited to my own wedding anymore!

      In my experience you find good people when you are happy confident and okay being alone. When you are like that it’s like you share the best of yourself. You give off an awesome vibe and people like that. That’s when I’ve always met my long relationships.    Being trans is unfortunately something with negative connotations. So are lots of things. But people find partners that love them for who they are. There are no limiting factors. And you never know who that person could be. So all anyone can do is live. Be yourself and be your best. And not worry about it. I’d hate to be sad about it forever just waiting. I’d just go live life. And be me.

      Good evening from here, sipping coffee after dinner, tastes great, and glad to be home after 13 days on the road down and up the west coast. Here is a pic I took from across the marina in SD and hotel complex I stayed at in the background...

      Wonderful.  I'm glad you enjoyed the experience.

      Litha (midsummer, summer solstice) approaches. This Saturday, the sun will be at its strongest, longest day.    The full moon Esbat is now, tonight.    Which means that the representative full masculine power of God (summer solstice)and the representative full feminine power of God (Full  moon)  will be the closest they come together astronomically and astrologically this year.   My mind has moved in interesting directions over the past few days.  The goddess calls...   Will attend a Litha Fire festival this weekend to celebrate.

      By all means stop looking, but do not put words into other people's mouths. I've heard all 4 of those lines too, along with the classic, "it would feel weird being more than friends with you" and a few others.  Just enjoy being yourself, if you do not think you are worth the time why should anyone else? (a lesson I have recently learnt/still learning).   I'd bet you have plenty of good qualities, heck get some cats if you have really given up on people - but if you are strong enough to transition then you are strong enough to find more to look forward in your life than just skipping to the end of the book.  
    • Raven1981
      I am with you DeeDee.  Even before transitioning, I was always put into the friend zone.  Then I just hated these famous lines I was told.   1. Your too much of a friend to be a relationship person.   2. You have just not found the right person yet.   3. There is plenty of fish in the sea.   4, You dont have to date, cause your not the dating type of person.   All these lines I just hate with a passion.  They are all just the nice way of saying get away your ugly and I dont like you.   That's why I am just giving up and will just die lonely and alone
