Okay, I thought it was time to post a picture of myself en femme:
I am exploring makeup. While I do have an occasional mishap, I feel pretty good about my progress. Today, I learned that it is best to brush your teeth before applying lipstick! I haven't made heavy use of Youtube yet, but I have been frequenting Sephora and asking lots of questions. I find the girls at Sephora to be very helpful and kind in light of my gender expression. They are more than willing to demonstrate. In any case, makeup is an adventure that I am enjoying, and I try hard to look my best.
I do have one open makeup question: Does anyone have a reasonable approach to skin care? I've been hearing a lot about it lately. I'm convinced that I need to take better care of my complexion, but I have seen a number of very expensive products that I simply cannot afford right now.
