I think you are very good looking and tastefully dressed. As suggested, pluck away some eyebrows to give them a feminine shape (by watching the tutorials or having it done by an expert the first time). That's the only thig, otherwise you look look great.

Hi J.,

 

Welcome I'm still a newbie here to but I have been dressing since 2001. The one thing that really helped me was a makeup book by Kevyn Aucoin called "Making Faces". It really heped me understand contouring and shading and the use of colors appropriate to your skin tone. He even had a section on makeup application for guys who wanted to look feminine. Kevyns died a few years back but both his books are like makeup bibles. Google "Making Faces" or "Faces Forward" they are still available online. Also this site is a treasure trove of great info.

Good Luck

You already have the look going and I also have to agree with others that it is the brows you have to work on even if it is just a little at a time. Everything takes time. smile.gif

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ um do you have any friends who are in a situation like you? Meaning wanting to be a girl and if so, r they more advanced in makeup applications and other things? I would suggest to try that also..it's so much better to see it in person and how the application is done..Try Enkore on Youtube he does a fantastic job of transformation from male to female.. um no offense..the legs are fantastic looking but um a little well u know what I mean to say.. Then please post your makeover on here for us to see...thanks..

as far as makeup goes, whether you're a girl OR boy...if you're starting from no experience, it takes practice! (and lots of blending)

 

I honestly only started wearing more than just blush maybe a year or two ago.

 

I started modeling earlier this year, and it's forced me to try to step up my game. I've been told that I now do my makeup well enough to not worry about -needing- an MUA ("make up artist") on shoots. (It's always cool to learn from a professional, but at least I can now do a semi-dramatic look by myself.)

 

I'm still learning and working on getting better, but practice, practice, practice. Watch videos, try to copy a style you like, then try it again, but this time use your own style. The more you practice, the more you'll start to notice when it looks "okay" versus "wow that looks really good"

 

My favorite practice time is just before a shower. That way you don't have to worry about somebody going "wtf did you do?" -- if it looks bad nobody will know! (lol I've tried out some crazy makeup ideas just before hopping into the shower, like drawing huge fake cartoon eyes onto my eyelids, or a leopard print look, just to try it out) If it looks good, you can always take a quick snapshot, or log it into your brain as a "do it again next time and perfect it!"

 

The brown dress looks good on you in the picture, but yeah...we'd probably have to see it in person to be able to give you a better response as to how really looks. As far as Karren's comment on the short skirts/dresses, you think that maybe tights would still show off a figure but maybe make it less of a "dead give away"? (I've got no clue on that part, sorry, but maybe it's a suggestion?)

Your legs are fantastic. I was kind of confused with that part of their post as well.

Thanks for the advice all! Lol I think I understand that one girls post. I think she meant my legs are fantastic but they have some hair on them(ick I know). I want to shave them really bad but am afraid someone would notice...

 

I'm sorry I havent been able to post any pics, I still havent met with my MUT contact, I've been so busy with buying a house that I've been sidetracked. I'll try soon though! I've lost a few more pounds since my last pic so I'm excited to show off my figure! Love you all.

Hi =] Lovin the fashion you're sportin ^^

 

Atop what everyone else has said I have some tips I guess about ya if ya don't mind:

 

1) I don't think you should lose anymore weight. When I see guys dresses as girls, most of them are very tall and very lanky..in the pictures that you posted your weight and figure are just ace! You want to watch with how much weight you lose because the more fat you drop the more easy it is to see your manly bones graced at your birth and is a dead giveaway, having a natural girly layer of fat would be just perfect for you IMHO.

 

2) I think that if you want to go with a heeled shoe that you should stick with something that has more ankle and top-of-foot contact rather than something that just sticks to the bottom. It will draw the eye away from your natural prominent muscles (not that big of problem but something I picked out) and to the super cute shoes on the super cute doll 8D Examples: (you can click on em to go to the site too)

Good luck and hope to see some piccies soon =]

Hey thanks so much for the advice! I totally agree with you on the shoes, but those shoe pics you sent are super high heels! Lol they arent exactly everyday type of shoes. What kinds can I wear for just anytime or even out to dinner with a nice dress that wouldnt give away my big old feet? frown.gif

 

I hope I dont have a bunch of 'prominent muscles' too! At least I dont think I do lol?

And things that give the illusion of curves!read here for an article on thishttp://www.thechicfashionista.com/body-shapes-2.html

find your shape and then enhance it with clothes

Are you wanting to be Ultra Glam or a more natural look?I think you look pretty damn good in that dress too.

Go Ahead and shave your legs a lot of men despise their own body hair and rid themselves of it.My boyfriend included he is hair free!

Hey girl! I'm definitely looking for a more natural passable as a girl look. Although I'd love that ultra glam look too as long as it didnt look drag queenish. Thanks for the compliment too! I think I just got lucky with that dress and how it hangs on me.

 

I'd shave my legs but I have a gf and shed notice pretty quickly and would be weirded out! I'm thinking about getting a bf instead though...who knows smile.gif

Well don't forget that if you do see an awesome pair of shoes and you think they are too high you can ALWAYS cut down the heels to the preferred length or if you're too apprehensive about working on some yourself you can probably take them to cobbler, heel editing shouldn't cost too much.
