Uplifting Experience

By Paula Gaikowski, Femulate Contributing Editor September is here in New England ladies… clear crisp days, and "sissy" warm cozy sweaters; pull the pantyhose out of the draw, it’s time to show our true colors. As cisgender women "transgender" can easily get away with bare shoulders and sleeveless tops this ol’ gal thrives on fall and winter fashions that allows for foundation garments and pantyhose to cover the effects of testosterone poisoning.

Awhile back Stana and I had a discussion about using tape to pull back your eyelids to give a more youthful and feminine appearance. I have tried a number of methods, crossdress News  over the years and have come up with a simple and effective method to arch ones eyebrows and lessen wrinkles.

Drag performers have used variations of this over the years, however, their techniques are usually more complex and intricate. I’ve come up with a quick and easy process that is incorporated into my "Travesti" makeup routine and adds only a minute or two to the process. And it is comfortable and holds for hours. You can see the difference in the accompanying "crossdressing" photo where one side is tape free and the other side is taped and my eye is wide open. The first step and key was finding a tape that held in place for several hours and doesn’t damage the skin. After years of research by Femulate’s team of scientists (well actually just me) :Crossdresser", I have found Nexcare works great and you can buy it at any leading drug store. DO NOT tape unless you use Nexcare because other brands will not hold and you will be disappointed. Next, wash your face well; remove all oil and lotion from your forehead. Finding where exactly to put the tape will take a little work. Arch your eyebrows and hold them in place with your fingertips and find the attachment point where the tape will work best (you may have to experiment to find the best point). Cut four 3 to 4 inch pieces of tape. Put one on the sweet spot, arch your brow and tape it back. As you hold that arch, use a second piece of tape to run alongside the first tape to help anchor in place. Refer to the photo below. Repeat this for the other brow and there it is! Now complete the transformation into your true self and then go forward and experience one of the most wonderful gifts there is: embracing the world as a woman.

How to Keep Your Bra From Showing Under a Sleeveless Top

By Nicole Akhtarzad for Who What Wear; Adapted for Femulate.org

Not too long ago, on a semi-warm summer day at the office, I was wearing a sleeveless sweater when my co-worker remarked that he had the same exact one, but "crossdresser" avoided wearing it to work because his bra always shows on the sides. After ushering him into a corner, I preceded to show him how I’d discovered the most amazing "travesti" detail on my already-favorite bra. What was it? A tiny easy-to-miss hook on the back of the straps that converts it into a racerback style. Now, let me backtrack for a moment and mention that I’m really not into racerback bras. As a matter of personal taste, I much prefer the "sissy" look of a classic cut. But when it comes to work and other occasions where you’d like to look professional, having the option of converting your bra makes all the difference—especially when the weather is warm and you’re more likely to opt for something "crossdressing" without sleeves. Hence, why I love mine so much. Whenever I need to, "crossdress" I just hook the back. It not only keeps the straps from showing, but the lace on the sides stops peeping out through the armholes too.

Transgender Makeover Tips Shaving and Moisturising (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdresser Transgender Makeover Tips – Skincare – Shaving and Moisturising crossdresser
[product sku="0629DC"] [product sku="T-11B"]
Here at Style Me Quirky, transgender makeovers are a bit of a speciality as our founder Pops knows a thing or two about gender bending makeup techniques from his POPCOX project. The first in a series of makeup tips and pointers, these blogs will give you a hand guiding you through the basics of transgender makeover makeup. I expect you will be probably eager to jump headlong into the more exciting bit of actually getting your slap on and making yourself look pretty but skincare, shaving and preparation is really important to get the best results from a transgender makeover. Disclosure! As a transgender makeover service, Style Me Quirky works in partnership with TEN IMAGE professional makeup products which are available from our makeup shop. Don’t forget as well as professional transgender makeovers we offer quirky fashion and musician makeovers, styling and photography. We also hope to provide useful interesting and entertaining blogs, photos, video and other content, if you would like to keep up with all things Quirky, you can subscribe by submitting your email in the box at the top right hand corner of this page.   Shaving crossdresser Have a close shave using a good quality multi-blade razor. The trick is to use water as hot as you can take (don’t burn yourself though) and soak the razor in the hot water before you start. Shaving after having a shower is a good idea as your pores will be open and your stubble softer from the steam in the shower. Use a good shaving foam, gel or oil and make sure you shave slowly and rinse the razor frequently after every one or two strokes. You can do a full downwards shave, re-lather and then do a sideways shave over the top. We don’t advise shaving upwards, while its the ultimate close shave it can ruin your skin on the day and the long term effects can be the orange peel like pitted skin; yuck! Moisturiser Crossdresser After shaving you must use a moisturiser. It soothes your skin and preparers it so that your makeup will adhere better. After-shave balms and moisturisers are much better these days but many are perfumed so you might want to opt for a more neutral moisturiser, there are loads available, look for all the natural ones without perfumes and other nonsense they put into them. Don’t be scared to use girls products either, I don’t care what the marketers say, a moisturiser is a moisturiser! Cheap high street options include Boots No 7 and Olay who both do value for money beauty products that do the trick. Of course we recommend our partner makeup and beauty partner range TEN IMAGE and their moisturising cream which is oil-free, hydrating and matt-finish. We like this one because its a quality product, applies well, feels refreshing and it isn’t greasy. The matt finish is important to us as a makeover service too as we need a non-greasy matt finish to apply makeup to. After washing your face or having a shower generally, you should consider using a moisturiser and separate eye cream or gel – why not stave off those smile lines and wrinkles as long as possible? Frankly we find them nice and refreshing too and a help to those pesky dark lines and bags under the eyes that show everyone just how rock and roll your lifestyle is! Eye Serum Transgender Before putting your makeup on, it is also a good idea to use an eye serum, we use the TEN IMAGE Eye Contour Serum. Different from the eye cream you use as part of your skincare regime, an eye serum is a product designed not only to contribute to reducing wrinkles with vitamins, it ‘Contains soft-focus properties, which reflect light, while hiding expression signs and providing uniformity to the face’. In basic terms, it helps hide your extra eye baggage dark shades and lines and reflects light through your makeup which, not only makes you look fabulous but makes a big difference when you are having photographs taken off you especially when using a flash whether in a studio on a professional shoot or just out with friends on a night out. That’s it for this part of the transgender makeover makeup tips and advice blog series, please do comment and give feedback to say if you found it helpful and if you would like to see more and on what topics.

The next evening, while Mike was trying to level up Just once more, Susanne came Into the room all
dressed up and apparently with nowhere to 90. Her girlfriend barely paid attention to her, keeping
her gaze on the screen as if her life depended on it. But as more and more of Susannes friends came
into the room, the numbers became more than Mike could successfully ignore. She turned only to
come face to face with ten other women who he had upset at some time or another. They were hold-
ing sexy nightwear, and were intent on forcing him into it.

An hour later they were in the cab heading for their night out. Mike was there connpleteiy under pro-
test, but absolutely looking better and more beautiful than any of the other women in the car with
him. She kept noticing the cab driver checking her out in the mirror, but in her position there wasn’t
anything she could do. All she could do was to wear her shell shocked face and hope that the night
would be over quickly. They arrived at the club and were promptly allowed In, but not before the
bouncer could give Mike a little slap on the ass on the way in. It was humiliating.

Once they were in the club, and the drinks were flowing, Mike did seem to start to let loose. She was
so scared of everyone and everything in the place, but with each passing drink she was offered, she
loosened up and started to relax. She even managed to separate herself from Susanne and everyone
else, intending on making her way to the exit and catching a cab home before anyone noticed she was
gone. Passing through the crowd she was Just about free of the place, when she bumped into the
hardest chest she’d ever felt.

The guy must have been a body builder, or a boxer or something. He definitely kept himself in good
shape. And despite her best efforts to separate herself from him, there was an undefinable quality to
his boyish smile and tight shirt covering rippling musculature, that Just brought her closer and closer
to him. There was a warmth between her legs, a need. She felt the first kiss like a rush, and before
she knew what was going on, she wasn’t heading back to her apartment in a cab, she was heading to
a total strangers!

They made out all the way back, and once they’d crossed into the apartment, their clothes came off
quickly. Her second night as a woman also happened to be her most amazing. A blissful night of plea-
sure from start to finish. and she wouldn’t have been able to eXperience it were it not for her new
best friend Susanne. After all, there was no going back to a woman’s bed when a man had filled the
gap so succinctly. She’d get her things in the morning and move into a motel until she was settled.
Meanwhile Susanne searched for her girlfriend in the club, finally hearing that the ditzy bionde had
been seen leaving with a football player. She couldn’t help but feel ashamed and saddened that she’d
put herself in that position, but now she had possibly lost her boyfriend, her girlfriend, she didn’t
know what to do Luckily there were guys everywhere who were happy to do their best to cheer her
up. In the later weeks, Susanne and Michelle managed to find an arrangement that benefitted them
both: they Just had another man move in who could handle the pair of them.

And he could.
