You are young dear so you probably don't need much makeup. Try not to overdue anything. Your mom may be your best guide and critic as well. I know mom's who make there your daughters was up before going out. Do you have any cis girlfriends? Many young women develop an understanding of makeup through relationships with other girls of their age. As an 'older" woman i have much different problems of complexion etc. Most of all try things at home and be prepared for a learning curve. It is fun to develop a style of your own.

Hugs,

Charlie

At fourteen, your biggest item at the cosmetics counter will actually be skin care products in general. There are concealers for blemishes that comes with the teen years. This will have a tiny bit of foundation color in it that will even out your complexion, but not hide your skin like the older stuff does. Have mom take you to a store where there is a make up demonstration counter, and have the sales person try a number of things on you. That is fun, and they have fun too.

I agree with Vicky your best bet will be to pick up on what the other girls your age are doing, and figure out what styles you like. Going to the makeup counter is also great advice I recently had the girls in Sephora match some foundation to my skintone and I'm suuuper happy with what I ended up with as a result. They are usually really really helpful if you go to a boutique that specializes in cosmetics, Ive pretty much got my everyday look down but I still go in and experiment with different eyeliners and lipsticks and such to find out what I do and don't like. So really just experiment and have fun with it. :)

Hugs,

Sarah

Definitely get a makeover at Sephora.

You'll want to start with the basics: Foundation, powder, blush, bronzer, a simple palette of eye shadow that goes with your eye color, a couple shades of not-clown-red lipstick, basic mascara, etc. :lol::lol:

When I first started playing with makeup I bought a cheap ELF palette with like 30 colors of shadow, 6 blushes/bronzers, and some lipstick in pots. I bought a set of brushes from Amazon and every day when I got home from work I'd try a new color combination to see what it looked like. I'd recommend doing the same or similar. Practice makes perfect! B)

      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.

      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

      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
