A Subtle, Less Scary Way to Wear the Ombre Lip Trend (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

Loving the red ombre lip!

Loving the red ombre lip!

I can’t even tell you how often I’ll be scrolling through Pinterest or Instagram and see all these really cool chicks wearing the coolest makeup trends, then get super bummed because I don’t think I can actually pull them off! But even for makeup trends that are super scary, there’s usually a more wearable way to wear them, although we should all just be brave enough to wear whatever we want, whenevever we want. Of course, that’s easier said than done.

One of those trends I always “pin” but never wear is an ombre lip. I decided to grow a pair and just try it, and it turns out, I love it! And it turned out to be pretty wearable too! I could walk around wearing this and not feel like a crazy person, even though that’s sometimes a liberating feeling. 😉

I love how customizable ombre lips are; you can literally do whatever colors you want, and make them as dramatic as you want. For my lips here I decided to go with red and coral and fairly subtle.

1. Blank out the color of your lips

The first step is to use the leftover product of whatever you used for your foundation to blank out the color of your lips. This will make the lip colors you use more vibrant and longer lasting.

2. Line your lips, and bring in the color slightly at the inner corners

Next, use a lip liner in the darkest shade that you want to use for your ombre (gradient) effect. I used an ancient Sephora Collection Lip Liner in a deepish raspberry that I didn’t realize wasn’t available anymore (sorry about that!). Line your lips, and bring in the color slightly at the inner corners.

3. Blend a coordinating lipstick into the liner

Now choose a lighter but coordinating lipstick color, and put that in the center of your lips. Then, blend it into the liner.

Go back and forth between the lip liner and the lipstick a couple of times to make sure the two sort of melt into each other. If you want a more dramatic lip look, choose colors with a lot of contrast between each other! I chose a more orange-toned lighter red from the Chris Chang x MAC collection called MAC Vermillion Vee (this one is limited edition, but it’s still available, so snatch it up if you want it now!)

4. For even more ombre, add another color

At this point you’ve got a bit of an ombre lip going, but I wanted a little more. Going a few steps lighter, I used Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic for a bright pop of coral in the center. Again, go back and forth between this and the previous color to really blend them together well.

5. For fuller lips, add a pop!

To make my lips look a little fuller, I’m using an old trick and popping a bit of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop in the very center of the lips. Champagne Pop was perfect for this look because it’s almost gold, which goes perfectly with these colors!

6. Clean up your lines

To clean up your lines, use a really thin lip brush and some concealer to make things look really sharp.

Clean up!

Phew! That’s a lot of work for lipstick, but I guess it’s like spending time on eyeshadow or contouring or anything else. It’s a really cool look, and I think I just may take the time to treat my lips to something a little extra special every now and then. 🙂 Next up, purple and lavender!

The finished look!

I hope I made the ombre lip trend a little less scary for you. Do you think you’ll ever give it a try? Maybe even go a little more dramatic than I did?

10 Ways to Love a Transgender Person (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

By Candace Mountain

trueloveThe landscape of dating and developing loving relationships can be a tough area to navigate for someone who is transgender. Not only do they have to deal with all the normal relationship issues that cis people deal with, but they also have to deal with any transgender issues they carry into the relationship. It can be a tough situation for both the transgender and cis participant. Here are a few tips that will hopefully make the transition from single to dating a transgender person a little easier for both of you.

10heartBe Prepared for Family Woes – When you tell your family that your new significant other is transgender there will most likely be some pushback.  As much as people are trying to be understanding towards transgender people, there is still a lot of uneasiness towards us and that can be heightened when we are dating one of their family.  It is very important that you stick up for your new partner as the pain resulting from not defending them to your family can seriously damage the relationship.

9heartThe friends shake-up – Most of your friends should be okay with your choices though you may run into a friend or two that do not respect your choice.  They may decide to remain friends but will only see you without your new partner.  There will be some that may even decide to terminate their contacts with you.  Honestly, those are probably not the kind of friends you need in your life and if you approach their departure in that way it will not make you resent your new love.

8heart.The Best of Both Worlds – Entering into a relationship with a transgender person is really not getting the best of both worlds.  The transgender person has always been the same gender even when they presented differently.  There absolutely is an exception to this tip with gender fluid transgender people.

7heartThe Changing Landscape – The transgender partner will always be in a state of transition to some degree depending on how far along they are.  If you, for example, begin to date a transgender woman early in transition there will be major changes and you need to be prepared for how that affects the relationship. In some cases these changes will also affect how you are intimate with each other.

6heartPronoun Minefields – You need to be very careful with pronouns because as a lover, an incorrect pronoun will stab at your partner’s heart more than anyone else using the incorrect pronoun.  You have a backstage pass to their feelings; use it wisely.

5heartTheir Junk and Junk Intentions – Before cementing the relationship, you do need to be aware of what they have between their legs and you need to be okay with it.  You also need to know what they plan to do with their unmentionables.  Whether they are getting surgery or planning to keep what they have, could play a factor later on in the relationship.  If you really like a lady with a member, you may not want to date one who plans to have it inverted into a lady part.

4heartThe No Go Zone – Some transgender people will be very sensitive to you touching some areas.  For example, a transgender woman who has not had her facial hair removed might be very apprehensive of you touching her face if she has stubble.  Similarly, a trans male may not like you touching his chest.  These are triggers for uneasy gender dysphoria feelings.

3heartThe Old Name – Do not insist on knowing their old pre-transition name.  Some of us do not reveal it as it comes with a lot of stigma from our pasts.  Others may be more forthcoming,  Personally, I do not share it because I fear it can be used as an emotional weapon against me in a fight.

2heartTo Use it or Not to Use it – Some transgender people will absolutely not use their old equipment when lovemaking and you need to understand any boundaries that exist in your partner as you don’t want to find out in the middle of some intense passion.  Others, are fine with using their equipment so it is worthwhile asking about it before you initiate the lovemaking stage in the relationship.

1heartTake it Slow – For many transgender people a relationship may be awkward at first as they work out their place in it and figure it all out on the fly.  This is especially true of transgender people early into transition.  The best advice is to take it slow and communicate a lot to ensure you are both ready for each step you take.  The beautiful part is that the relationship can become very rewarding and is worth all the extras you put in to make it work.

3 Ways to Get Your Summer Body Ready (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

Summer Body Basics

It is getting pretty close to summer and many of us want to have our summer bodies in tact. This may include fabulous arms or fabulous abs and many want to leave no stone unturned when it comes to this. Momentum is a central part of summer exercise. It’s normal to have those weeks when everything goes correctly: You do all your exercises, eat like a health nut and begin to think, ‘I may completely accomplish this!’

Then ‘it’ materializes. ‘It’ may be a vacation, an illness…something that throws you off your game, or you just become bored with it. Getting back to our routine can be painstaking unoriginal and is constantly tough, partly as you’ve lost that momentum. We already realize that an crossdress object at rest tends to remain at rest, so getting going again is the only way to get your momentum moving.

Rather than caring about making up for lost time with intense exercises, center on simply getting some simple exercise time in short periods of time. There have been studies that show 10 minutes of moderate exercises three times a day can be just as equal to a full extreme workout.  Plan your exercises for the week.

How pass as a woman (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

Passing… it seems like the holy grail for crossdressers. If we could work hard enough, lose that extra pound and practice voice lessons for another hour – maybe, just maybe we could pass as a woman. In our minds we’ve build up passing as something elusive that is to be dreamed about and never achieved.

Yet passing is closer, and easier than you’d think if you let go of the notion that everyone, all the time must only every perceive you as the woman you’re trying to impersonate.

Here are nineteen practical tips from Kelly Stevens for how to pass as a woman. If you’re serious about passing you’ll find more high quality advice in the world’s best crossdressing guide.

How to Crossdress and Pass As A Woman

1. Dress your age. If you aren’t a junior, don’t buy your clothing in the juniors department

2.  Dress appropriately for the situation. A cocktail dress at the mall isn’t optimum. Make up needs to be appropriate.

3.  Crossdressing is an illusion. A genetic woman can go out without any make up and can look a mess but not look like a man. You can do the same as a man and not look like a woman. You need to constantly preserve the illusion and this involves diverting attention away from your flaws and using clothing and most importantly accessories to preserve the illusion. I do not need glasses but found they feminize me so I bought some (in the women’s section of an eyeglass store). wearing men’s glasses simply is not good enough in 99% of the people I know. I wear a hair band, diamond engagement ring, chain bracelet, necklace, earrings that dangle, and red lipstick because many people have critiqued me and said these things feminize me. The red lipstick and nail polish divert the eyes away from other parts of me.

4.  Choose a wig wisely, This may be among the most important things you do. Length, color, style all matter. (If it is too perfect, it will look fake.)

5.  Hair removal is always an issue.  You think nothing of spending a great deal of money on clothing and cosmetics so spend some on a quality razor.  Consider hair removal on your face if necessary. I had laser hair removal and it was the best thing I ever did. Use the right foundation to cover the beard but shave it off first! covering is not as good as removing. Shave closely and several times.

6.  Apply make up skillfully.

7.  Cover your arms if you need to. My arms are larger than a woman’s so I wear some type of top. This means I never get to wear sexy cocktail gowns and expect to pass but I can usually find something nice with sleeves. Cover your Navy tatoo!

8.  Keep your skirt length appropriate.  In fact, keep everything appropriate. Anything that looks out of the ordinary will be noticed and once you are noticed you will not pass.  Much of the time if others really noticed me i would not pass yet somehow I pass extremely well. Why?  Because I blend in and fly under their radar.

9.  Avoid direct confrontation with anyone and when it i necessary to interface with a waiter, store clerk, etc. be prepared.  When i go to the grocery store i know they will inevitably ask me paper or plastic so I am ready and reach for a plastic bag.  I know I will be asked cash or credit so I have my cash or credit card in my  hand where they can see it before they ask. But if I have to speak, I speak softly and quietly and smile.In a restaurant, point to the menu item as you order. This reduces the need to fully speak in detail.

10.  Choose where you go in public carefully to minimize problems. If you don’t really pass, stay out of the ladies’ room. I go out at any time of the day or night in Times Square and pass but I avoid groups of teenagers like the plague. They will notice and if they notice they will not notice quietly.

11.  Walk like a woman not a caveman.

12.  Relax. If you are afraid, you will walk like you are afraid. Have confidence.

13.  I’ve seen many men who do not prepare themselves to pass. One CD friends is an auto mechanic and he shows up at support group meetings with black grease on his hands.

14.  Eat and drink like a lady. I love beer but more women drink wine so i drink wine. Men stuff their faces. Women are much more, well, feminine in how they eat.  Study female  behavior so you can emulate it properly. A word about smoking. I personally feel that smoking is one of the easiest means to tell if someone is a CD or a real woman. Few men can smoke like a woman. You think you can, but you can’t.

15.  Carry a mirror and use it. Men don’t need much attention but women need constant attention. Walking from the parking lot to the Mall can result in blown hair. Eating can alter make up. Be prepared.

16.  Smell like a woman.

17.  Pay attention to detail. You may not be into make up and real women don’t need it to look like a woman but it will really help you. Curl your lashes. (No, don’t use artificial lashes). Keep your clothing stylish. No, that man’s coat isn’t going to pass as a woman’s coat. Details! If you have a huge Adam’s Apple, wear turtle necks. Learn to adapt.

18.  We all want to have our own set of 52 DD tits but if you wear 52DD tits you are going to attract attention and you will therefore be noticed.

19.  Be self aware. Know your limitations. Unless you have practiced dancing like a girl you probably won’t do it like a girl.

And there you have it – nineteen practical tips for crossdressing that don’t require night classes or intentisive training. Don’t stop now, there is so much more to learn about crossdressing – learn how to pass as a woman.

Can we still look like transgender women when we’re down to nothing?
If your lifestyle will afford you the option, the final leg of your fem development is often looking female without the help of much else. Now I’m not referring to you sisters that have hormonally enhanced hips and silicone filled breasts. I’m talking to gals like me that fight the grind of rapid hair growth, with hips narrower than your shoulders and not much fem elsewhere.
