Wearing makeup everyday

I started wearing clear makeup everyday. You may wonder why clear makeup?

I wanted to add this to my daily morning regime. 

First, its good practice to learn how to put on mascara everyday.

Second, I need to get use to wearing it every day and how it feels.

Third, I need to learn to keep my hands away from my face and how activities can affect my makeup. For example, I learned from Dr. Oz, to wipe of lipstick before I eat. Then after I eat, I reapply it.

Fourth, I need to check my makeup throughout the day. I keep a tube of lip gloss in my car.

I love doing this every morning. I have had no issues about the makeup because my glasses cover my eyes and no one has mentioned my lip gloss.

I remove my makeup before I go to the gym because of the sweating.

Below are the two products I use.

Once I finish my electrolysis, I plan on adding a clear foundation and light blush.

The Atlanta weather is finally turning hot.

One of my problems is that I dress is guy mode and my skin color is two different shades. My arms and face are darker than the rest of my body.

I shave the hair off my body and when I go to the gym, my saved legs are lighter than my arms and face.

I love my legs, but my color is off. I catch some people at the gym looking. I do not know or care if its because they are smooth or so light or maybe both.

Well today and tomorrow, I am going to use the Atlanta sun to tan my whole body.

I set up a small mattress outside and placed a wall of blakets on two sides. The third side faces the house and the forth side faces the woods.

I showered and put the usual lotion on. I waited until noon, when the sun had moved into the back yard. I setup my "tanning bed", removed my clothes and put on my robe.

Once on the outside mattress, I took off my robe and  laid in the hot sun. It does not take me long to tan. I decided to turn over every five minutes. It was HOT. I did front and back twice. I was sweating alot.

It worked. I now have a nice tan over my whole body. After I finished I took a nap and then  shower, finishing with baby oil all over.

It was fun. I felt like the girls I use to see sun bathing growing up. I thought about what would I say if some guy came up to me to talk, while I was sun bathing at the pool or beach. You are laying out there so unprotected. Now I know why girls tan together. Its not just to socialize.

I am going to tan again today, to get a little darker.

For those wondering, some African Americans need to tan. We just do not need to tan for long or often.

So Busy

I am so busy and time moves so fast. This is why I must move forward, if I am going to become more fem. 50+ will turn to 60 then 70 before I know it.

Got back from Dallas and my face looks and feels great. I found a way to get back and forth via the Megabus. They changed their bus schedule which forced me to fly to Dallas. I can still make the return trip, which I did, but the Atlanta to Dallas leg changed.

My way to get to Dallas, is by taking the new 6:30 am Atlanta to Memphis bus. Then the 4:00 pm Memphis to Dallas. This gets me into Dallas at midnight. Then I can take the train to the hotel.

In May, e3000 is moving. So my hotel will change. I use to get in at 6:30 am, the morning of my appointment. Now I get in the night before, so I will get a good night rest at the hotel. Also, I will use a new hotel because of the new location. I can no longer walk, but a few of the area hotels have a free shuttle to e3000.

I can tell, my time at e3000 is coming to an end. My face no longer has a 5pm shadow. I can go a week without shaving. I will miss them. They are the first business and individuals to always relate to me as a women and Susan.

I dress feminine for my appointment day. But because I can not wear makeup or wig during the appointment and I end up presenting as a feminine guy. It is fun to put together a femguy wardrobe. I had a few looks during my walk, but nothing negstive. I do not know or care what those looks were about.
