"Why Makeup Matters to Transgender People — and How the Internet Is Helping" is a very interesting article written by Rachel Lubitz, which was just posted on Style.Mic.
“The relationship between makeup and transgender people is a complex one. For… transgender women, makeup is one of the first steps to embracing their own gender identity. There isn't one way to be ‘female,’ but makeup is certainly one traditional aspect of modern femininity that trans women may try.”
As a makeup maven, I thoroughly enjoyed the article and highly recommend it to my readers. I began playing with makeup during the Kennedy Administration and I am still playing today trying to achieve the unachievable, perfection.
Nobody’s perfect, but I’m trying and I will try to share what I learned over the years with a group of young transgender women when I present my new workshop titled “Makeup Basics for Trans Females” at the True Colors Conference next month.
In my past workshops, questions regarding makeup came up frequently, so I decided to try something different and concentrate on a topic people want to know about (and something I know something about).
It should be fun and I am looking forward to it!
