Her face is cropped for client privacy and anonymity.
I taught her how to dress to suit her changing body shape from hormone treatment, and how less is always more in the style stakes.
I showed how to cover any residual beard shadow with makeup tricks which would be easy for her to do on a day to day basis-without resorting to heavy coverage camouflage.
I also reshaped her eyebrows which made an enormous difference to feminising the face.

I was browsing in Primark Oxford st and checked out their new beauty products which apparently have had a recent significent financial investment.
I was really impressed with their makeup brushes which I then bought for a transgender MTF client so she could experiment with her newly learnt makeup application techiques, taught by me, with these brilliant inexpensive makeup tools.
The brush prices ranged from £1-£2.50 and were excellent in both texture and balance between softness and firmness for application and blending away.
The key to a good make application is blending and blending away.
Its not all about countouring as seen in so many airbrushed insta MUA posts.
It’s so important to be able to blend away, especially for a trans girl who may still be covering her remaining beard growth during her laser/electrolysis/hormone treatments with layers of concealer products, foundation and powdering to set.
However blending away is important for all girls whether it’s eyeshadow, foundation, concealer or blusher.
The brushes shown here include double ended brushes:
Angled eyebrow brush
Eyeshadow and concealer brush
Apply and blend brush
Foundation and concealer brush
Powder and finish brush
And an artist palette of eyeshadows.
Great makeup tools for starting out.
Total £29! ( i doubled up on some of the brushes for my client)
I love my work so much when it makes people feel good about themselves. My work is all about being the best version of you that you can be. Whether I’m helping clients with their wardrobe, colours, body image and self-confidence, body shape, first impressions, body language, healthy diet and nutrition, exercise, make up for women, makeup for men and more.
Eyebrows and eyebrow shaping are so important and make so much difference to your face. I tweezed first to shape and then extended and added missing brow hairs. I covered the beard and uneven skin tones, and shaded cheekbones with a contour kit. .
