This is good Jo Jo!  I remember taking a rainy afternoon (kinda like today!) and trying to mimic a look I saw in a magazine.  I then took some photos to get a good view of my work.  I had a good time and learned a lot that day.   I have settled into a regimen of light make up that is quick to apply that I can add to when I want to glam it up. 

 

There are all kinds of ways to learn!

Catching up on this thread and the extremely long, but very much worth reading, tale about the Sephora class was wonderful! Kudos to you for going! It's possible the instructors don't know much about beard shadow color correction or concealing, but there's enough of us here who do, and we all have our own tips and tricks that work (or have worked) for us.

*have worked for those who have done/are doing permanent hair removal and thus no longer have a beard shadow, or have less of a shadow

Looking back on it, I'm SO SO GLAD that I took this class. It was an emotional rollercoaster, but it was absolutely informative, and was a major step toward learning how to present in a more feminine way.

You really look nice AsTheCrow.  I really need to attend a class like this.  It sounds like it would be so much fun if I could get beyond the anxiety of not looking as female as others.  I'm going to check it out anyways. Who knows, I might get just do it if Sephora offers these classes in my area.

Susan you might look in to whether MAC or Ulta stores offer classes also.

That's a great idea, Jani.  I found a Sephora store near me (25 miles South) so I called them earlier today after reading this thread.  They do have free classes usually once and sometimes twice a month that are specifically for transgender people.  They said the classes are offered either before the store opens or after they close.  They said they don't have any classes specifically for TG until November which is fine.  But I'll also check out the location of MAC or Ultra stores as you suggest.

      Yep, I agree, as noted by my Location description included with each message I send here 🙂   I'm much more relaxed here than I am in certain other parts of the USA.   Astrid

      Yes it is , and depends on the state .  In general its life insurance is a big savings , but short term disability may go up . In MA as far as I know no difference on auto insurance .

      Massachusetts is great! Love the state! One of these days, I'll move back.

      Hey y'all! Haven't been too active here the past few weeks, I've been in a mostly uneventful but busy routine the past few weeks. So I haven't had much to say or time to say it. But I think I mustered up enough noteworthy things to mention. So here goes...    So, life at my new sober house has been OK. On the one hand I've made some good new friends and became more incorporated into the lights community. I finally feel like I'm where I belong and part of something, not just subsisting in isolation on the fringe of society... On the other hand, I'm so busy and stressed with all the treatment and meetings required of staying in a sober house. I'm tired of treatment living. I want to be independent again. But for now it is what it is. I don't know what the future holds... But enough of that.    I've been off hormones for a week bc my doctor won't approve my refill until she sees me, which is in a couple hours today. I also do my first labs today. While I didn't instantly morph back into a man being off hrt for a week (lol), it did disrupt my morning ritual of taking it with my coffee. Being OCD this did mess with my anxiety a bit.    This past week aside, I've been transitioning now for 3 1/2 months. It's still going well. My breast are not noticeably bigger, but the tissue is firmer. My nipples are harder and getting pretty sore now. My waist fat is melting away (low carbs, intermittent fasting and a lot of walking) and smoothing out and blending with my hips. I still get dysphoric at times about my appearance. But I've been looking at photos of me before this past spring and I feel so much more pretty and feminine then I did back then. I'm quite content with where I see my transition going.    I also have my first laser hair removal session Friday, so excited!    I've been hanging out quite a bit with my transition sister. After my doctor appointment today, we're going for a walk in the park. She's so lovely... 😍   Stay awesome y'all!  ~Toni

      I like it! This speaks to me, about the duality we struggle and diverge with.    ~Toni

      Interestingly I realized today I had not contacted my auto insurance company when I thought I had.  Duh!  I called USAA and after the agent did a little research she just changed the gender marker.  I logged in to the website a few minutes later and hocus pocus, it was correct!  Yeah.  I'm hoping my rates will change a little.     Jani

      Very good Kris.  Hopefully they will follow through and all will be well!    Cheers, Jani

      Just came off the call. They said they are happy to support me in anyway they can but they don't have any specific policy built in. As such they are going away to do some research and reach out to other colleagues to see if they can work out the best way forward. On my side, does anyone have any links to good resources on transitioning to work at all? Would be good to read what other companies or people have as best practice so I know what might need to be discussed if anything is missing?

      Day two was very quiet actually. We sold a lot more stuff, but mostly through online sites. We shut it all down at 1 in the afternoon and went swimming at a friends pool. I actually had my 4 year old swimming without his floaties!! But nothing weird. Lol.  Nothing much. They couldn’t find the vin on the bike so they checked the vin on my title and saw that it wasn’t stolen and was in fact mine. So they said thank you and headed out. And a few minutes later the other person came and bought my bike.  Neither person seemed to have any issue with the bearded girl in a bikini with a bulge. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It says a lot about this part of the country I think. I am very grateful to live here.
