Been practicing with make up to cover stubble/feminize my face

Recommended Posts

Lorry

My wife has been helping me with my make up for the past couple weeks and I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. I still feel like my jaw looks really pronounced but I can deal with that. I am wearing a terrible wig in the photo. My wife thinks Im not passable yet (but she also says she is still adjusting to this stuff). I think I'm close to passing. But I would like outside opinions and tips if anyone feels like sharing.

I think that people we know will see through makeup and see our underlying features so it may take time for your wife to see you as anything different, even when being objective. My opinion is that, taken in isolation, you do have androgyne features so could be taken as either male or female. Really it is other clues which assist or work against things. If you were smiling you would probably look more feminine. The clothes you wear and you mannerisms would have a large effect. I like the wig. You remind me of a girl I knew at school. She had similar hair. It's good your wife is helping.

      Great way to look at it Kathy! I too passed moderately as a man. 
    • SaraAW
      I’m only a little more than a month on meds, but wow has it helped me mentally. Similar to Jackie, I’d been a mess mentally for awhile, even having attended therapy for months. Within a week of starting, it was like a godly of self loathing and despair lifted. I’m also noticing some more range in emotions, subtle so far, but I’m loving it. Any doubts I had regarding whether hrt was for me are completely gone now. I can’t wait to see how things progress mentally and physically, although I know it’s a slow road, so I’ll have to. Thanks for sharing. Hugs!

      I dislike the word "passing" because, to me, it implies role-playing, or pretending to be something one is not.    However, @Belle, I agree totally with your reasons:   Those are the same reason that I try to have a good female presentation.  And yet, despite #2, it doesn't matter to me if someone guesses or knows that I am trans, as long as they treat me as a woman, they don't voice any cognitive dissonance, and I like what I see in the mirror.   I passed moderately well when I was presenting as a man.  I don't need to pass as a woman, because I am one.   Regards, Kathy

      Shawna, so exciting!  Sounds like a great time out, with that one awkward experience. So happy for you. Hugs!

      I’m wondering, could this be a placebo/nocebo effect?  The mind is pretty powerful and can actually cause physical manifestations of symptoms in all sorts of ways. Not sure I’ve read any literature around bleeding, but I haven’t done a lot of research in this area.    In would definitely recommend to keep an eye on it, maybe keep a diary, recording the dates, times, activities and other things occurring around the bleeding episodes. It may help you and your doc to figure out what is causing it.    Hugs!

      By now you should be healed enough to be able to apply a lotion (like A&D Ointment) to the area where the pad chafes.  It doesn't take much to make a difference.

      Not really sure where I stand on this at the moment. I’m still closeted, so not trying at all to present any way other than cis male normative.   What I really just want is to be able to just be and be treated as a human with respect and dignity, regardless of how I look or present. Then maybe I’d feel safe and comfortable enough to present how I want to in the moment.    Hugs!

      Congratulations!

      Catholic affiliated hospital by chance ?
    • Suzanne1
      Did the physician state why the hospital no longer allows that sort of surgery to be performed?  Just curious---I can think of a few possible, "reasonable-reasons" for discontinuing such procedures.

      I'm a past smoker and grateful it's "past".  Somehow smoking doesn't appeal anymore.  I do know that i'm just a few drags away from a pack + every day so i continue to be wary.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Time flies Charlize!  Congratulations on this occasion.   Hugs, Jani

      Congrats on 6 years as Charlize  Indeed it's a special time as the old name is removed from documents and replaced with one of our choosing.    Best   Cynthia
