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.

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Breanna.  I hope that your wife comes around to supporting you.  It often takes a while, and a lot of conversation and facts, to reassure a spouse.  With my wife, once she went out with me and saw that people treated me as a woman and there was no drama, she started to warm up to Carolyn.   Before CA changed its insurance laws to ensure that transition related care was covered, I paid cash for HRT and office visits.  After the initial exams and blood work, HRT turned out to cost about $20/month.  Obviously surgery will cost much more, but its not an ongoing expense for many people, especially if limited to an orchi.  But I'm getting ahead of things.  Therapy and HRT come first.  I wish you all the best.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      @Dana Michelle: I'm glad to hear that you seem to be getting through it alright, and that it seems to be getting easier.   I may be a complete novice here, but I've always gotten the impression that professional workers who have the possibility of encountering erections during the course of their usual line of work tend to already be trained to be fully-aware of what all us AMAB's are already naturally well-aware of: that the "stuff" down there tends to have a mind of it's own!!!

      Is that 15 to 20 hours per month, for the next 8 to 10 months? A total of 15 to 20 hours is very low. I've heard the average transwoman takes 200 to 300 hours of electrolysis to completely remove the beard. I've had 215 hours so far. My cheeks are mostly finished but chin and upper lip still need a lot more work.

      OMG, Love the cute boots!!! And the outfit!   And girl, I'm envious of those legs! Mine are like tree trunks!

      Hee hee, I love "Omergerd"!!     As a US-ican, I can confirm that I have Ibuprofen in my cupboard, but have never heard of "Savlon". (BTW, heading into spring and summer now? Lucky!!)   Happy for your happy dance!

      Hi Aurora! Nice name!   You sound similar to me! Although I haven't started transitioning (don't believe my profile pic, it's a lie) and I'll only start gender counseling monday, I'm another 6' footer (without shoes), and I'll be 39 in December. And yes, as much as I may miss them, the 80's/90's didn't have the most awareness of this, and I too regret that fact and envy the present-day trans youth. Maybe in next life!   Glad to meet you!
    • Heather Nicole
      Those are cute. Although I can't quite decide which is cuter, the shoes, or the young model's impeccable legs! 😄   With all due respect to his holyness, Tan France, I'm not sure how much I buy into "age-appropriateness" in fashion. I mean, yea, there are times and places for certain things, and not everything works in every situation. But if something really speaks to someone, isn't denying it kind of similar to denying one's gender identity? Maybe one's "age identity"! Heck, my toenail wraps right now are super-juvenile, candy-pink with a daisy and a heart, but I love them! (Although, true, I'm not currently showing them in public.)   I'm reminded of this commercial:   Or maybe it's all just the shopaholic in me speaking

      Welcome Breanna I also feared the insurance company. When I called them originally they said no transgender coverage. I went to my endocrinologist and met with her and they were able to push it through. I have been on hrt for 6 months and have had a mammogram and insurance has covered everything including the majority of my prescriptions. When or if you decide on hrt talk with your endocrinologist. Working in a male dominated field is hard. I’m not out to my union and employer yet. Eventually I will get there hiding is proving harder than coming out.

      Thank You both.  I am on the Trans pulse discord and just love it there.

      Completely understand the "work in progress" part. Websites in general, and forums in particular, are ever evolving 😃   The funny thing was, when I first opened it on my phone, I thought something went horribly wrong with the screen until I figured it out 🤪
