    Hi girls, are any of you in or near central NC? I would luv to have someone who is experienced in makeup to help me out, I’m scared I will mess it all up..I don’t expect anyone to meet with me on the fly ( and I wouldnt do that either)…but get to know each other some first.. but I need help. I can try on my own and may have to, but thought I would ask!

          Feel free to ask any questions you like. There’s a lot on the site, but some of it is a bit obscure.

          By the way, I’ve been to Winston-Salem. I spent nearly all of 2012 in Wilmington. I worked for Corning, Inc. and had an assignment in our fiber optics plant there. One weekend I went over to Winston-Salem to watch the modifieds run at The Mad House, Bowman-Gray Stadium. GREAT Fun!

            Back in 2005 I drove one at Thompson, CT. It’s a 5/8 mile high banked track; completely opposite end of the spectrum from The Mad House. Fantastic experience! It feels like your butt is almost on the pavement. You’ve got ~600hp and lots of rubber. What a blast!

            Well, I have this Need For Speed. My wife says that I am the only person that she knows who has to slow down to get on an expressway.

            I resemble that remark…

      I’m still a ways away. Like another here I would be a rank amateur with makeup – emphasis on rank. I’m in the Gatlinburg, TN area just over the NC line. I’m wondering if a business model is being missed in this vacation area. A CD/TG store including a makeover session. Queen for a Day if you will.

        I grew up in Knoxville, so I know that area well. It’s hard to believe that there’s any tourist opportunity that’s been missed in Sevier County. Lol!

            Yeah, honestly hard to picture that being around back when I lived there, I’ve been gone 35 years now. Hard to picture it now, for that matter. Beautiful place to live though.

            I have seen a few CDs on the sidewalks of G’burg. I’m sure there are some I’m missing. I’ve noticed some lesbian women walking around. Nothing like this was possible just 10 years ago. Things are changing.

      Hi Effie! I’m in Ellerbe NC but since I have a full beard I don’t really do makeup. Occasionally I’ll do my eyes, but I really only fully dress at home but underdress all the time. I wear the occasional skirt around the farm in the summer and just started wearing lippy in lieu of lip balm. Today was Maybelline violet vixen 830 😀

        Hey Patti! Wow you are only an hour and a half away from me.. nice to meet you, if you have any eye makeup advise, I’m all ears ( or should I say, I’m all eyes 🤣). Maybe we can meet up one day and do our eyes! ❤️

          Hi Effie! En Femme advertises on this site and they have a few make up tutorial videos including one on eye make up. I watched it and a few you tube videos before I tried mine for the first time. The En Femme video kept it relatively simple (not necessarily easy 😉😂). Hugs!

      Not in your area, but that girl in Asheville sounds like a great way to go. Like the other girls said, what you want is practice. My wife gave me my first lessons, then we started watching you tube, and we both learned a lot. We often talk to each other now about new colors or techniques.

      Hello Effie. Seeing that you’re from North Carolina, if you’re able to travel to Asheville; I have a suggestion for you. There’s a lady by the name of Jennifer Barge, she’s a CD and LGBTQ+ advocate and she does professional makeovers and make-up lessons. She also offers a rental cabin that you can stay in and be en fem for a night, weekend, or entire week. She has her own website as she isn’t associated with CDH.

      Her website is jmbtransformations.com.

      Not in NC, I’m in California SF Bay area. Just wanted to say that I wish that I could help. I know what you’re goin through.

      I am FAR from experienced, by having a buddy to practice with can make all the difference.

      Good luck finding someone local dear.

      Effie we all mess up trying to apply makeup.

      You will make mistakes.

      We all do.

      If you can I would suggest a MAC cosmetics tutorial. They believe makeup is for everyone and the tutorial is done in private.

      Jecca Blac that advertises on this site has some tutorials.

      En Femme that advertises on this site also has some tutorials.

      Hugs

          Hi Effie, this is Brittney again. While Jessica suggested MAC, I’d suggest Sephora or Ulta Beauty; both are very accepting of ladies like us. I had a full make-up application done in July 2019 at an Ulta and even went in in drab.

          Effie we have all been there.

          Makeup should be fun and and way to express your fem side.

          But it can be daunting and overwhelming.

          Sephora says it has 3500 shades of lipstick. No wonder we look like a deer in headlights.

          Take small steps and you will be fine.

          Reach out if you need help.

          Jessica
