Fashion and Beauty Tips for the Trans Women

Tips for the Trans Women

You’ve lived a portion of your life as a man and now you’re finally a woman. That’s great. But even the best of us struggle with finding the perfect outfits and the best makeup looks for certain occasions. Here are a few tips that are sure to help every MTF Trans Woman out there:

DOS

• Dress Your Age

You may be tempted to compensate for years lived as male but if you want to be respected as a woman you will have to dress according to your age. Therefore, if you are approaching 40 you should not be wearing jeans shorts and crop tops like a teenage girl. Women around this age are usually more refined and dress as such.

• Use Concealer

If you are still transitioning but desire to wear makeup concealer should be your best friend. A good quality concealer will hide your aftershave, the bags under your eyes and any other feature that risks you looking more masculine than feminine.

• Ask Sales Clerks for Their Opinion on Anything Before you Buy It

If you are uncertain about how an outfit looks it is best to consult the sales clerk before making a purchase. These persons are usually competent enough to determine whether a certain outfit is a good look for an individual based on factors such as height, shape, age, skin tone, etc.

• Research

If you want to be on top of the latest fashion trends and styles you will have to do your research. This involves following up fashion icons and websites both trans women and cis women. A great place to start is Instagram and Pinterest.

DON’TS

• Don’t be Afraid to Try New Things

If you are comfortable in your own skin, you should not be afraid to try new things. After all, that is what fashion is all about: mixing and matching styles and patterns you haven’t thought of before and being bold in what you decide to wear. Be mindful however of the situations you are in and carefully consider if such an outfit would be appropriate for such an event.

• Don’t Contour

Every makeup guru you watch down to teens in high school are highlighting and contouring when doing their makeup. But this doesn’t mean that you should. Contouring can do more harm than good especially if your features have not been softened by hormones or fillers. Contouring will highlight your bone structure giving you a more masculine finish. Instead, replace your contour with highlight to make your face appear softer and more feminine.

• Don’t Overdo It on the Makeup

Makeup should be used in moderation unless you are trying to hide unsightly scars or birthmarks or to color correct. If you overdo it on the makeup you risk looking more like a drag queen than a woman of stature and chances are you probably won’t be taken very seriously.

• Don’t Mix Prints, Whites or Blacks

A very simple rule for every girl to live by when it comes to everyday fashion is “Don’t mix prints, whites or blacks”. As it relates to whites and blacks, it is very hard to find two pieces of clothing that are the same shade of white or black (unless they are a part of a set) and chances are that one will throw the other off. (This does not mean they cannot mix well but you are safer avoiding that risk). Mixing prints can be very disastrous if not done correctly and chances are two unique prints will not go together. Always say no to mixing stripes and polka dots or lines and squares. This will save you from committing a fashion sin.

Tips for Trans Women: How to Save Your Relationship with a Woman

MTF Transgender Woman

To be able to give love, you have to love yourself first. This is a hackneyed phrase but it really applies to everyone especially for trans women who are in a relationship with a woman.

When your closet gets loaded with all your girly stuff, you’ll have a difficult time choosing which one to wear. Just like in love, when you keep a lot of things hidden, it will be hard to make your relationship flourish. There should be transparency between two people so that both parties get to focus on nourishing their connection rather than keeping a secret.

Hiding anything from your partner will only bring you too much stress. She is constantly beside you and there’s no way you can stop her from noticing even the slightest changes in your ways.

It is understandable that you are concerned about how the woman in your life will react to you being a trans woman. But you should not focus on that because no matter how many times you think about it, you will not know her response until you tell her the real you.

True love knows no boundary. Your partner may not have the best reaction when she discovers you are a trans woman. But if her love is pure, she will eventually understand. If she lets love prevail, she will come to realize how wonderful it is to know you deeper. She will appreciate your honesty and she will take pleasure in seeing you exude with happiness the moment you go out in the open.

Male to Female Trans WomanAdmitting you are a trans woman does not make your love for your wife or girlfriend any less. Let her feel you would stand by her despite all the changes that are about to happen. The following tips can help you save your relationship with a woman as you try to enjoy your feminine side.

  • The goal is to express yourself to your partner without inhibitions. Make it gentle until she gets used to it. Continue bonding with her but this time, you can share a more feminine activity together such as polishing your nails or taking on a skincare routine.
  • Be consistent in reminding her how much she means to you. Let her know you love her and assure her that you will no longer keep a secret from her.
  • Do not take it against her if there are times she will feel uncomfortable. Give her time to adjusting to the situation.
  • When you feel like she has fully accepted it, you can be more articulate about the things that make you happy. Because she loves you for who you are, she’ll eventually find happiness in anything that pleases you.
  • Make friends with other people but make sure she knows about it. You can join a transgender dating site and be honest about it. If you think she is not open about you having multiple sex partners, give her an assurance that you will not get into anything sexual.
  • Ask her to learn more about transgender individuals by means of reading. She may also explore a transsexual dating site to advance her knowledge.
  • Let her speak with women who have gone through the same experience so she’ll understand how to make your relationship work.
  • Seek professional help if you have to. There are mediators who can help the two of you cope with this phase a lot easier.
