I am sure you all have committed one of these mistakes out in public and have vowed to never let it happen again! But, for those of you that still have not, let Glamour Boutique help save you from the debacle completely. Many crossdressers want to be able to go out, blend in, and have a great time! However, sometimes the hardest thing to accomplish is blending in.If you struggle with this or would like to learn, follow our “7 point guide” on what to avoid when trying to blend in below!
- Shaving Properly
- Boobs Too Big
- Too Much Makeup
- Inappropriate Outfit
- Avoid Yelling or Excessive attention to yourself
- Cheap Wig
If you focus on these seven points when preparing to go out – I have faith that you will have a great night ahead of you! Let me explain why.
How many woman do you know that have a 3 O’clock shadow? Unless you think this is what woman nowadays look like – I would urge you to shave every time before going out in public dress. Be sure to get under the neck, excessive sideburns, underarms, legs, and anywhere else you might have excessive hair (like your arms or at least cover up). Women are known to stay extra trimmed and groomed so don’t be afraid to trim and shape up those eyebrows as well. If you would like to learn how to trim and shape eyebrows, check out our article here! This will help massively, I promise you.
2. Boobs too big:
It is no surprise that a lot of people are attracted to big boobs. However, boobs that are too big can create too much attention. Too many people when they see a woman with very large boobs start to wonder “are they real”. You don’t want this to happen since, to be honest, they aren’t real and you will attract some unwanted attention. So, to be safe an average sized C cup will always do the trick and will still give you nice cleavage to show off.
3. Too Much Makeup:
One thing I see way too often with crossdressing is, overdoing the makeup. This is a dead giveaway and can very easily be fixed. Large amounts of makeup will not help you pass, but being able to appropriately apply the makeup will help. Learning how to master your makeup routine is important (cleanse, moisturize, beard cover, foundation, contour). Also, learning some basic makeup looks will help so much! Check out some of the articles below that feature some different makeup looks:
4. Inappropriate Outfit:
Excessively tight or short clothing is bound to get you unwanted attention. Also, with less clothing and a tight fit it can be challenging hiding everything that you would like to stay hidden. To be safe and to avoid an embarrassing moment I would stay away from anything excessively tight or short when dressing for daytime. A beautiful flowy dress or maxi could change everything! Refer below!
Of course, at night time you can go more glamorous with bolder colors for makeup, shorter hem-lines and cute, tight cocktail dresses like our Little Black Dress for Crossdressers.
Be conscious of how you are walking. Be sure to stand tall and walk with confidence while dressed. Slouchy or un “prim” walking could be a giveaway to people.
6. Avoid Yelling or Excessive attention to yourself
It is much easier to keep a feminine voice while talking at a relaxed rate and soft un-forced tone. Screaming or yelling could draw attention to a more masculine sound. Be conscious when out and about to blend in not only with how you look but how you sound.
7. Cheap Wig
Nothing is worse than seeing someone in a horrible party store cheap or badly fitting wig. Most times I just want to rip it off their head myself. Cheap and ill-fitting wigs do nothing for passing. Save those for Halloween. Men’s average head size is bigger than a genetic female so make sure to browse a supplier that features wigs for crossdressers. When you’re trying to pass – break out the good stuff. Quality hair is easier to style, and maintain throughout the day or night, and and will stay looking good for much longer – remember that!
