firstly I’d like to thank you all for making this site what it is, and for encouraging us all to explore the whole spectrum of life as a CD and to truly be ourselves.
I’ve been on a bit of a rollercoaster the past couple of weeks, but today was definitely a high, that I’ll have to repeat! I’d been experimenting with some eyeliner and mascara and decided to take it a bit further. ‘I know, I’ll go and buy a few more supplies from Sephora and get a bit more practice in’. The ladies there couldn’t have been any more welcoming. When the first assistant didn’t speak perfect English (my French is pretty basic) she brought another colleague over. Okay, what can we do for you? I’d like to buy some foundation, eyeshadow and blusher please. She then sat me down, tested some colours, explained the need for a ‘base’, then made me up! (Bear in mind that I was on my bike, in drab, running some errands, not really imagining that I’d have the courage to walk in there, or that they’d do the works!) No one there batted an eye, all the ladies were super polite, and another assistant complemented me on my new look.
As some of you here have said, and a recent Gender Rebels episode I watched also highlighted, most shop assistants are just getting on with doing their job, and most strangers are too caught up in their own world to worry about what you’re doing, wearing, etc.
So, yeah! Do it! It’s great! Find your nearest Sephora!
