"Hi Ann, Thank you very much for your
detailed comments. They are worth quite a bit to me.
My eyes and eyebrows in particular are my least feminine
feature. I will give it my best attempt to implement each of your 7 tips.
If I do it enough I am sure I will eventually get it
right. Please continue to help me of these points.
Not only do you have expertise in these matters, I seldom
go out among the folks knowledgeable enough to help me,
other than when I go to the TV/TG conventions. I'll send
pictures of my attempts to improve. I'll stay in touch.
I am very honored to have your interest in this.
A truly attractive, feminine face is the one thing I
really want to emulate. Much love," Toni (6/4/2008; pictured
Over the years we have enjoyed so many successful
Gender Image Salons with positive feedback on our makeup
section, that with the encouragement of our dear friend
and client pictured here, Toni, we decided to launch an
Note Toni's progress after her personal consultation:
Your personal consultation is designed to improve your facial
image by increasing your knowledge of makeup
principles and techniques, as well as
basic hair and wig styling tips, plus
practice ideas you can implement.
- Softer eye color application with less glaring white
concealer under her eyes,
- Thinner eyebrows with more feminine arch,
- Whiter teeth,
- More natural, modern hairstyle, hair texture, and color,
- Less smudged eyeliner at corner of eyes,
- Better blending of colors, and
- More natural, darker foundation color.
Once you are enrolled we will send a personal email
welcome. We then ask you to send us by email,
up to 10 photos (closeup of face please, some with hair
(or wig) naturally styled as you wear it and some with it
pulled back from your face) representing
your best efforts to present a suitable image. We ask
for two images (front and side view) before application of
makeup, and eight images (four front and four side views)
after application of makeup.
We will then review
your photographs and send a one to two-page
e-analysis of your efforts,
including feedback on:
Use of foundation,
Use of contouring and blending techniques,
blush and lip color,
Effect of hair color
and general style tips, and other.
We will also suggest some key face and hair products and
where you might
purchase them (we don't sell any products), that we believe
might be useful to add to your makeup kit.
Finally, we will suggest some practice techniques so you
can continue to learn, and reference other consultations
that also might assist boost your feminine presentation
We then ask you to implement our suggestions, and within
four weeks send us
an additional set of eight images (four front and four side)
that we can analyze your progress and give you additional
feedback by email.
You may choose to send us two different styles of makeup
if you like, for example, a day makeup, and an evening or
more glamorous makeup.
You may wish to continue learning by viewing
CD-ROM presentations regarding
fashion choices, and ways you can work on more subtle
clues that might give you away when en femme in public.
