Make-up advice freely shared if anyone has any questions

Postby jenni2604 » Wed Mar 06, 2013 3:22 am

Hello everyone,

I am a freelance make-up artist wanting to share my expertise with anyone who is interested in asking a question about make-up application techniques and products. Just wanted to join the forum and share some knowledge with you all if your happy for me to do this.

The reason I have joined the forum is that I have had personal experience with a family member and two very close friends who have/are in the process of full transition from male to female.

My cousin (now a retired police officer) had reassignment surgery two years ago and has never looked back. This was initially a very difficult time for her, especially as she had to pursue a transitional change from male to female within her work environment for some time before the operation could be granted.

My cousin faced all the adversity in addition to the prospect of being isolated by her long standing close friends and relatives. She persevered through this difficult time and I was behind her all the way. She battled through the darkness and the conflicts and now she is complete at long last. She has broken free from the chrysalis and has blossomed into her true self. I love her to bits and always will. So very proud of her, her strength, resilience and determination to break free from those restraints.

My cousin has become my best friend and was shocked to hear that I too had another best friend whilst living in Bristol, who had also gone through reassignment surgery; but this had happened prior to us meeting. We are still very best friends to this day, even though we live miles apart. She is there for me and I for her.

Anyhow, I wanted to share those experiences with you so you can understand that I have a personal understanding of the difficulties faced by the transgender communities. I am far from an expert and have never experienced anything close to what my cousin and best friend had to face; but equally I am far from ignorant to the issues.

I have friends within the transgender community and have offered my services to assist with make-up lessons and application techniques. I am not classing myself as a specialist in this field, I just want to offer some tips to anyone who struggles with make-up application as I enjoy sharing information and in addition meeting new friends. :-)

For those who are curious and wondering if I am wanting to drum up business you could not be further from the truth. I'm offering free advice and nothing more to anyone who would like it. I may not get any response to this, and that's ok too, because it means it is not needed.

I want to thank you for taking the time to at least read through this and if you have a query please do ask and I will try my very best to help.

Best wishes to all xx

Hi sounds great - we are naturally cautious re people in business offering anything 'free' as usually there is a sting or they begin to use the Private messaging here to suggest they can 'pop round and offer make-overs' etc. And then there is the well I do not expect you to do it for nothing petrol products and so on - before you know it they have an Avon round being promoted here! :).

So thats then advertising and you can pm me about that as an option.

But if it is just free advice then you are very welcome.

Also there are a number of groups and events in the UK where you could possibly attend them with a make-over stall and charge a small sum for make-overs. You cold contact Janett at the Beaumont Society for more advice on upcoming events on that pm me and I will pass you on to her. It is not unreasonable to make money there of course :) Hey a girls gotta make a living ;).

Anyone who is happy to support and care for transpeople be that medical or beauty/electrolysis is OK by me.

Hi Ice Maiden,

I've tried to reply to your note with a new posting, but it seems I have to add text to the end of my original blog...I think I'm doing this wrong (typical of me) but I will continue for the time being as want to thank you for allowing my post to be aired and for your honest comments. Its much appreciated. (will need to know how to respond to any questions on this topic though, so if you could let me know that would be great)

I totally appreciate your concerns, but trust in me as I am not looking to make any profit from this. I'm just offering free impartial advise as and when needed should anyone ask. Hence the reason why I have not mentioned my location as there is no need. :-)

How do I PM you by the way?

I know Jenny-Anne Bishop from Transforum in Manchester and have attended a few evenings with the group members with Chloe my cousin. Fantastic group of people and so welcoming. Jenny is a sweetheart.

I made contact with her yesterday via email to ask if anyone is interested in make-overs so I will wait to hear back from her. I would be interested in the events held by Beaumont too. My advice will always be free and by providing information and links to resources (nothing in that for me at all, as I'm freelance) it can be followed through and put into practice.

Yes, I do need to make a living and that will come eventually as I build up my business, but as I promised in my intro, my business is separate to me offering advice. I seek nothing from this at all other than obtaining satisfaction from being used as a reference tool and providing some guidance. I know how my cousin struggled and seen how she has blossomed. I can assure you I am genuinely sincere.

Thanks again and hope to get some questions coming through in the interim so I know I will be of some use :makeupx:

Hi Jenni,

I just thought I would answer this and bump your kind offer back to the top again. I'm sorry that you don't seem to have had much response. I agree with Ice in that we do tend to be a very shy and sceptical bunch when it comes to offers like this. Now, I'm very much a minimalist kind of girl and prefer a very 'natural' look and so try to wear the least amount of make-up possible - so I'm not asking for any advice. I just thought that you might appreciate knowing that others have read your post too. Best of luck.
