jennifer38 : (19 December 2014 - 12:16 PM) I still plan to have another phone conference, tomorrow.  All members are invited.  Details are on the calendar.
UsernameOpti... : (18 December 2014 - 07:55 PM) Happy Birthday to stephani
MonicaPz : (18 December 2014 - 06:17 PM) Happy birthday, Stephani!
AshMich1945 : (18 December 2014 - 10:57 AM) Hello...my name when I'm transformed, is Ashleigh Michelle James. I'm a lifelong cd/tg from sw Connecticut. I've been fascinated by female attire and femininity since I was very young. Now that I'm mature, I can enjoy all the benefits of being a woman. I hope to meet many more members from CT and share my experiences with them as well as possibly go out for shopping trips, coffee latches and brunch.
CharityLynnC... : (16 December 2014 - 01:24 AM) lol
veronicabeta : (15 December 2014 - 10:16 PM) Recalling all the times I cursed "dial up" and was worried the Interweb might have become self aware !
UsernameOpti... : (15 December 2014 - 09:30 PM) Duct tape, bailing wire, bubble gum and a good hammer will usually fix nearly anything!
Lori : (15 December 2014 - 08:43 PM) Sorry about the outage today. We had server problems but banging on it with a hammer seemed to work! ;)
CharityLynnC... : (15 December 2014 - 08:22 PM) what in the world cause this site to be down for a day...lol..tried to get on and got an sql server error..
jennifer38 : (15 December 2014 - 10:56 AM) I plan to hold another conference this Saturday at 3 PM Eastern.  For those who came to the last one, the number and meeting ID are the same.  Anybody who does not have the number and is interested, please message me, as I've been advised to not openly post the number and ID for fear of them falling into the hands of troublemakers.  Also, anytime I bring up religion and The Bible, it is not meant to intimidate or embarrass anyone.  I'm sorry if anyone feels put down, because I have no intentions of doing so.  In spite of my transgender feelings, I have a deep love for Christ, but I respect those who don't believe like I do.  My goal of these telephone chats is simply to create a telephone hang-out for us fellow trans on all levels of the spectrum, and for our allies.  I hope to see you all there.

jennifer38 : (12 December 2014 - 01:12 PM) I thank everybody who called into my telephone conference.  It was wonderful.  I feel good about talking to others and hearing their perspectives.  Lord willing, I will hold another one, soon.  The conference number and ID will always be the same.  I will let you all know when I plan to do this, again.  God bless you all.
JayPea25 : (12 December 2014 - 11:50 AM) Anyone in Baltimore!?

Bonnie : (11 December 2014 - 02:45 PM) Fun video, Warren, except for the ending.  The jumping while running hand in hand.  It is good to see a video like this though.  Thank you.
jennifer38 : (11 December 2014 - 11:41 AM) This is a reminder about my telephone conference, tomorrow afternoon at 3 EST.  Come out and enjoy yourself.  This is a general chat about our various transgender feelings and issues.  This is a great way to get to know one another better.  Details are in the calendar.  If you have any questions, please message me.  Hope to see you there, tomorrow.
EmmaSweet : (09 December 2014 - 10:13 PM) Cool, Warren! Good thing they had subtitles. My Japanese is pretty weak!

Mikala - Certainly.  First of all, there's some basic tips (with an obvious brand bias) over at http://www.covergirl.com and much more detailed explanations for specific looks at http://www.youtube.c...er/MichellePhan .  The best personal tip I can give is don't go overboard.  There are a lot of types of makeup out there, but you don't need to use them all (actually, a lot of them serve really similar purposes for the same areas).  I use liquid foundation (foundation will probably be a makeup essential), generic waterproof mascara, generic light violet eye shadow (with purple above my lids), and Born With It lipstick.  I specify Born With It because it's the only color I've found that seems really natural for my face.  Then again, I really go for the natural look.  You may very well want to cover your face in white powder, clump on mascara and eye liner, and get the deepest red lipstick you can for all I know.  What's more, it might work for you.  

Oh, and an eyelash curler and tweezers help a lot, too.  If you're planning on living as a man in your day-to-day life, thinning out your eyebrows may be a little weird, but it makes a big difference.

I can't help out with hair at all because I put absolutely no effort into my hair.  It just kind of falls into place, other than my ahoge.  But hey, it's a good look for my hair type and facial structure (very thin, straight hair and a long face [why the long face, Lincoln? genetics?])
Wouldn't the sentence "I want to put a hyphen between the words Rock and And and And and Roll in my 'Rock And Roll' sign," have been clearer if quotation marks had been placed before Rock and between Rock and and and and and And and And and and and and and And and And and and and and and Roll, as well as after Roll?

I was going to say the You tube channels are many and great when it comes to make up tips and as for hair goto a hair dresser and try to figure out the best cut for your facial features , mine well still a work in progress LOL .. but one thing I do know is that without my hair band (wide) no one would know who I was because I always were one , find something everyone can connect to you that works ... also you may need little to no make up simply some lipstick , I can get away with two things lipstick and a half inch line above and below my eye of eye liner , I can also go with the rest if I feel in the mood but look around 90% of GG's dont have hardly anything on , old rule holds true you Know about the KISS rule  (Keep It Simple Stupid) nothing could be closest to the fact  less really is more especially when dealing with makeup.

Hugs have fun discovering your personal look

photo shop is a good start but as i belive a trained makeup artist and photographer will bring out every beautiful aspect that you hold .

I will always say try different things out , but your going to find That Simple will always bring out the most impact

eye shadow
eye liner
mascara
lip liner
lip stick
blush

most enhancing items no need for alot but can always bring out the most for the least amount of time and effort .

Thanks for the ideas, I will be doing some testing out Monday, got another meetup that night at Sue Ellen's here in Dallas, and I also got a wig, so that will be a vast improvement over going with no hair

Danella , teenagers tend to "Over do it " , especially in the mascara departments . They want a "Dramatic " effect mostly. We older folks do well when it's  a "Blended " and "Muted " effect for the most part ...........

Less can be more - basic base makeup matched to your skin is good.  There is a men's (stage) makeup & concealer called Menaji - really works well. I have also used cover girl liquid but this make up is harder to use without looking a bit fakey.  Always use mascara and a light blush product.  Really don't need much blush. Unless you have a major brow issue just a fine line of dark brow pencil and then brush it in.  It is easy to go overboard with eye lining and shadow.  I actually love to play with colorful combinations but this is where mistakes are usually made.  Better to brush some light brown around the eyes and call it a day.  (Again less is more.)  Lips can also be over done.  Line lips = OK.  More lip plumping and less lip coating.  Do use a lip gloss top coat.  I love lip gloss.  Dawn
