Miracle Beard Cover

Miracle Beard Cover

Just like building a house, the foundation is the top priority. Plastering on thick concealer is a dead giveaway and perversely draws attention to the very area you are most anxious in disguising . Our Miracle Beard Cover  shadow products effectively covers up the darkest areas with just a sheer coating and lasts the average T-girl up to 3 years.

First cleanse the skin and apply miracle underbase cream followed by a thin, sheer covering of miracle beard cover with a damp cosmetic sponge. Miracle setting powder is then used to fix the beard cover using the special applicator provided. Make-up is then applied normally on this base that does not run, smudge, crack or rub off, and behaves just like a second skin, even letting perspiration through without effect – you can even swim in it!. To call it ‘Miracle’ Beard Cover is no exaggeration, it is an absolute essential.

6 Top Make Up Tips For Cross Dressers and Transsexuals

6 Top Make Up Tips For Cross Dressers and Transsexuals

6 Top Make Up Tips For Cross Dressers and Transsexuals

1 –  Invest in good makeup brushes

brushesQuite simply, it’s impossible to apply masterful makeup without the right tools.

Forget about the tiny, cheap applicators that come packaged with most makeup. Upgrading to high quality brushes will give you much more control, immediately upgrading the look of your makeup.

Here are the basic brushes you should own:

  1. Foundation brush
  2. Concealer brush
  3. Powder brush
  4. Blush brush
  5. Flat eyeshadow brush
  6. Eyeshadow blending brush
  7. Lip brush
2 – Use color correctors

colour-correcting-concealersIf you have skin issues like a beard shadow, blemishes, or dark circles under your eyes, the solution is NOT to bury them under thick concealer. Your makeup will look much more natural if you start with a color corrector.

The idea behind color correctors is to use a complimentary tone to neutralize imperfections. This allows you to achieve beautiful skin with less makeup.

For example, you should use a pink or red corrector to neutralize a dark beard shadow – or a green corrector to neutralize redness.

3- Don’t ignore your eyebrows

eyebrowsA mistake I see many crossdressers and transgender women make is leaving the house with ungroomed eyebrows.

Since eyebrows create the frame for your face, they are literally one of the first things people notice about you. Why allow misshaped brows ruin an otherwise good makeup look?

If you can, get your eyebrows professionally shaped.

4- Practice, practice, practice

Makeup is like any other skill – the more you practice, the better you get. And the better you get at doing your makeup, the prettier and more convincing you will look as a woman.

5- Book a lesson with a professional

makeup-lessonCome to our Manchester Shop where our stylists will do your make up and give you all their top tips after years of experience

6-  Take good care of your skin

showerYour skin is literally the canvas for your makeup.

Proper skin care can go a long way towards improving your skin’s texture and appearance. Not only will this make you look better, it’ll help your makeup go on smoother and last longer.

Here are 3 simple skin care tips to keep in mind:

  • Avoid using harsh soaps on your face. Use gentle facial cleansers only.
  • Apply facial moisturizer daily.
  • Use a face mask at least every other week. (This is a great ritual for pampering your inner woman!)

Choosing the right wig for your face shape

Choosing the right wig for your face shape

face-shapes-600x360 (002)There are seven different basic face shapes, and each face shape has certain styles that are more flattering.

Oval Face

TransgirlThe most common face shape for women is oval. With this face shape, a woman’s forehead, cheekbones, jaw line, and chin are perfectly proportional and balanced. The length of the face is longer than the width.

Because everything is so balanced, the oval shaped face tends to look good with almost any wig hairstyle. Wig styles that have short or long hair, and wavy or straight hair, are all very suitable for this face shape.

Women with an oval face should consider their best features, like their eyes, cheeks, or lips, then accentuate them with the wig style.

Round Face

WGS105Women with round faces are described as having a face that is relatively short and broad with rounded contours. Generally speaking, the widest part of a round shaped face is at the cheekbones.

A woman with a round face can appear thinner in the face if she adds height to the top of the crown, but not at the ears, as that would add width. This face shape tends to favor a wig style that is short with layers and wispy diagonal bangs. Also, wigs that have an off-center part can help to reduce the roundness of the face.

Other options for women with round faces are wig styles with hair longer than chin length.

Square Face

WGS200The square face shape has a broad forehead and cheekbones, as well as a wide chin. This face shape has a strong square jaw line and equally square hairline.

Like women with round faces, finding a wig that adds height on top, but narrowness on the sides, will create the illusion of length. Women who want to add height to the face should choose a wig that allows her to comb hair off the forehead to expose it more.

A wig that helps to soften the angles of the face is also a good choice. Mid-length to long curly wigs, as well as those that produce wisps of hair around the face, are also options that flatter a square face. Avoiding wigs with styles that feature one length is generally recommended.

Diamond Face

WGS201Diamond shaped faces have a narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Because of the wider cheekbones, it is best to choose a wig that does not add volume to the cheek line and focus on adding more fullness at the chin. Wigs that allow women to pull their hair behind their ears also will reduce the width of the cheekbone area.

A wig in a bob hairstyle is quite flattering for women with a diamond shaped faces. Another flattering wig option is one that produces a fringe or bangs that covers the narrow forehead.

Also, wigs that create volume at the hairline, rather than just coverage, give the appearance of fullness or width in the forehead area down to the upper cheekbone.

A shoulder-length wig with a layered cut will add movement and give the appearance of the more common oval shaped face.

Heart Face

WGS100The heart face shape has a wide forehead, eye, and cheekbone area along with a pointed chin, reminiscent of an upside-down triangle. Sometimes the heart shaped face has a widow’s peak hairline.

Women with a heart-shaped face should look for a wig that brings some hair onto the forehead, while keeping the hair close to the head at the eyes. The wig should also be fuller at the jaw and below and in front of the earlobes. The pageboy style, or a wig with longer and subtle layers, is flattering as it makes the jaw appear wider and more balanced with the rest of the face. Avoiding short hair and choppy layers is recommended.

Pear Face

WGS106Least common of all, the pear-shaped face is widest at the chin and jaw line, and most narrow at the hairline and forehead. Pear-shaped faces look best with full layered looks that add width and volume from the eyes to the crown to balance out the face, such as the classic shag style. This look removes attention from the middle of the face. It is best to avoid jaw length blunt cuts.

Layers give the appearance of fullness to the upper half of the face, and women could accentuate the top half by showing the forehead, as that draws attention away from the jaw line.

Wigs with bangs should be angled slightly and tucked behind the ear to frame the jaw line and focus attention toward the upper portion of the head.

Oblong Face

WGS208Oblong faces are narrow from the forehead, through the cheekbones, and to the jaw line. This face shape usually is found on women with a long and thin neck.

Choose a wig that adds width and fullness at the sides by incorporating soft curls and waves, as well as any wig that would minimize the vertical length of the face. This will flatter the face and neck and obscure the straight long lines of the face.

Having bangs shortens the facial appearance by softening the upper portion of the face. Bangs could be straight across, feathered, or half bangs with side parts, as all of these styles soften the forehead.

Women with an oblong face should avoid wigs that are one-length cuts, and those with short layers that add volume to the crown area.

Wigs styles that flatter oblong faces are short to medium in length with longer top layers, such as a graduated bob cut or wedge. Women can also add width with a wig that is chin or shoulder length that turns under or flutters out.

Sleep Safe and Swim Safe Breast Forms

Sleep Safe and Swim Safe Breast Forms

Our Breast and Nipple Hormones

Having read our other articles you now just need to make sure you choose the right breast forms to help maximize your male to female transformation.

If  you want a good quality pair of realistic looking and feeling breast forms that you intend to wear most days and for going out and that although you will start off wearing in a bra you would like the option of wearing topless with adhesive. Already you are looking at least a mid-range pair of breast forms that not only have a much better appearance, weight and touch of the cheap, heavy breast forms, but that also have re-enforced backs to be able to withstand breast form adhesive.

BTS117Over time you may also want to sleep with your breast forms on. Again, make sure you consider sleep-friendly breast forms which are our Latex breast forms. Many silicone forms are not intended to be worn during sleep since any body-weight brought to bear consistently over time on a silicone breast form can in time weaken the seal and lead to a rupture. Many girls use silicone breast forms for day wear and then switch over to sleep-safe foam breast forms for night time.

DID I CHOOSE THE RIGHT BREAST FORMS?

When trying on breast forms for the first time, whether in a retail showroom or after receiving your online purchase make sure you have a form-fitting top to hand. The true feminine effect of the shape of enhancement is seen properly under clothing. First-fitting steps:

  1. Attach bra in place
  2. Loosen shoulder straps
  3. One at a time, insert forms into each cup of the bra
  4. Tighten shoulder straps to required firmness to hold forms in place but not squeeze them
  5. Pull on a form-fitting top and inspect the shape in the mirror

If you have chosen the correct breast form style and size then they should sit snugly at the bottom of the cup of the bra. With correct shoulder strap adjustment, the top of the form whilst still enclosed in the bra cup, should blend into the chest wall and not pull away from the chest. With a form-fitting top on you are looking for smooth, realistic curves to the shape and slight movement of the ‘bust’ as you move.

The breast forms should make you look and feel feminine and for most there is an element of excitement when you slip them on for the first time and you have made the right choice. Choosing breast forms is similar to choosing a favourite pair of shoes or a bra; it can take a little time to find the right one, but as soon as you make the right choice everything just feels like it should.

How Kids Cope With A Sex-change Parent

How Kids Cope With A Sex-change Parent

 

When the children of former plasterer Anthony Hamilton Smith stopped calling him “Dad”, he was overjoyed. But they really didn’t have much choice-because they’d watched their father slowly change into a woman. No longer Dad and definitely not Mum, Jay 13, Melanie 8 and Louise 5 decided to call him plain “Toni”. That choice of name might sound like a minor problem, but for the delighted parent it represented an important breakthrough in gaining the kid’s understanding.

 

For a minefield of human emotions lied ahead for any family as it comes to terms with a father or mothers sex change.  But experts believe that children show remarkable maturity in dealing with this bizarre experience. Consultant psychiatrists, who treat patients at Britain’s leading Sex Change Clinic at London’s Charing Cross hospital says “Children cope very well, although there may be embarrassment or social inhibitions for some. Surprisingly there is very little disturbance”.

Toni, 34, is certain she did the right thing in fighting-and winning-custody of the children in a historic ruling after a two year legal tussle with former wife Carol. “I am a her now and not a he” she says, bustling around her three bedroom house in Ebbw Vale, South Wales. Trying to slot into the role of a normal housewife, she realises an emotional crisis could rear its head at any time especially with Melanie and Louise. “I know that I will have difficult problems, especially when they reach adolescence” she says “but I’m sure my own experience will help me to cope. Because of what has happened to my body I’ll be able to understand more than most fathers what the girls are going through. I’ll be in a better position than most mums in warning the girls about certain types of boys” she says. But the problem remains more widespread than we might imagine with over 1,000 people in Britain suffering serious confusion about their sexual identity. Nonetheless, in a traumatic world of gender benders the case of Toni Hamilton Smith shows there can be a happy ending!!!!

The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation

 

The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation

 

The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation
The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation

The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation. Transformation was founded by Stephanie Anne Lloyd in 1984. Having been through the gender reassignment process at a time when it wasn’t socially accepted, she was only too aware of the struggles and hardship that are faced by those seeking to become more feminine. It took her a long time to discover why she felt like something was missing and how she could go about resolving that. Having experienced that herself, I would never wish for anybody else to feel that way. Whether you crossdress in the privacy of your own home when nobody else is around or whether you’re looking to pass convincingly as a woman in the street, becoming more feminine can appear a minefield – there are so many issues and options, it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why we’ve put together this guide. Over 10 points, we will look at the key aspects that will help make you feel, and look, more feminine. If you follow these steps, you’ll be on your way to achieving the Male to Female Transformation you desire. If you have any questions or would like to know more about the products we provide, please don’t hesitate to contact us. All of our contact information will be listed at the end of this guide.

 

The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation

 

  1. Decide what parts of your body you want to feminise

Whilst the obvious answer may be breasts, there are a number of other ways in which you can make your body appear more feminine. You could shrink your waist or enhance your buttocks, to provide a fuller, feminine hourglass shape. Once you know what areas you want to focus on, you can begin looking into which products can be used.

 

  1. Decide if you want to keep your new feminine development a secret

The answer to this is going to impact the products you use. For example, if you were looking to develop breasts but wanted to keep them a secret, you might wish to consider wearing silicone breasts or a lower strength breast development cream or breast enhancement hormone pills.

 

  1. Find a reputable company that can provide safe-to-use, self- administered hormone products

You need to make sure that the products you’re taking are safe, effective, and fit to be administered by yourself. There are a whole host of options available now, ranging from creams, patches, tablets, etc. so you must make sure you find a company that provides all the information you need about the products and take caution if you have existing health concerns. Look out for companies that have expert staff on hand at all times to help you with any questions you may have.

 

  1. Decide how quickly you would like your transformation to happen

Just as with whether you want to keep your feminine parts a secret, the speed that you’re hoping to achieve a transformation with will also impact the types of products that you buy. For example, if you are looking to develop breasts quickly, you may wish to use a higher strength oestrogen hormone breast development product, as well as breast growth accelerator capsules.

 

  1. Be realistic with your feminisation target

Unfortunately, the whole process could take longer than you anticipate or want it to. You have to think of it in the same way as a female going through puberty – the results will vary and they don’t come instantly.

 

  1. Start with a small amount of breast and nipple development cream

As previously mentioned in the last point, your body will react to the products differently to others. Therefore, you may see greater results faster. If you’re looking to keep your feminine development a secret, you may wish to test out how susceptible your body is to the creams.

 

  1. Keep to low strength medications to start

As with the creams, you may be particularly receptive to the medication. If this is the case, and you use high strength medication, the results you achieve may be more visible than you initially wanted.

 

  1. Remember to take Anti-Androgens

In order for any of the female hormones to work successfully, you have to supress the testosterone in your body. Anti-Androgens are designed to prevent testosterone from destroying female hormones. This allows any feminising hormones you take to work at optimum effectiveness, although it will not reduce your sex drive.

 

  1. Seek medical advice when necessary

When you begin taking feminine hormones, you may experience some slight side effects during the first few days. These are usually in the form of hot flushes and feeling light headed. This is completely normal. However, if you suffer from serious medical conditions or blood disorders (thrombosis, high blood pressure, or kidney disease, etc.), please do seek medical advice before using any feminine hormone product.

 

. 10. Upkeep is essential

 

The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation
The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation`

If you stop taking hormone products, any of the feminine development that has occurred will gradually reverse. Therefore, in order to maintain your new feminine development, you will need to continue taking hormone products, albeit at a lower dosage.

 

I hope that  The Essential Guide for Male to Female Transformation has proven to be of use and has given you

some things to think about. I also hope that you now have a clearer understanding of the process and the things that you need to consider before taking any steps towards feminising your body.
