crossdressed late night

So my wife's out of town.. Just before she left I got my portable closet from amazon.  Having clothes, shoes, and wigs spread out like they ought to be is quite nice.  It's crazy I dug through a cardboard box all these years.

Last night I crossdressed, but I started late because I had to time letting the dogs out.  Right now they are going outside in the front until I deal with a bug problem in the back (where I would normally go un-noticed being dressed up).  I started around 6pm, and didn't finish until 8 (yes, 2 hours).  I was actually shocked when I looked at the clock.  Dogs were sleeping on the couch the whole time, now in the dark when I got finished.

So I went upstairs, took a shower.  Started by shaving my legs with electric clippers (I prefer this method because it gets the bulk of hair), and depending on my mood I may follow up with a razor to get a closer shave.  Since I was wearing hose, I opted not to.  I then began to shave my arms, and then the razor started to sound like it was struggling so I opened it up, cleaned out the hair, and put it back together.  I then finished shaving my arms, hands a little closer shaved, shaved my chest, stomach, but opted for scissors around the pubic area.  Having a shaver that close scares me.. I can only imagine slipping and having a serious bleeding problem that could require medical attention.

I did decide to shave my chest and stomach so my top looked good.  I then threw on panties and a bra, and started on my makeup.  I start with foundation, and this time I used a couple different ones in layers.  I then powdered with a couple different colors, then I add blush.  Then I move up to the eyes, this time opting to start with white at the top, and charcoal on the lids, fading up on the sides a little.  I then move into gluing my fake lashes on which can sometimes take a couple tries.  If most of it sticks and only one side is curling up, I won't start over but instead opt to apply glue directly to my lid and push it down.  Even though the glue is clearish (leaves a blue haze), I usually go back over it with eyeliner.  Once that's done and I know the lashes are secure, I'll curl them up with mascara.  I then paint in my brows, I think thickening this up makes them pop and look more feminine.  Final step is of course lip liner, lipstick, and lately I've been adding lipgloss to make them pop.

So of course now realizing it was 8pm, and I had to be in bed in about 3 hours for work the next day, I realized how much work I just did for very little reward.  I didn't even bother with putting nails on, but I did wear my swing dress, heels, hosiery, pair of hoop earrings.  I figured I should try to take advantage of the situation and at least take some photos.  I posted some on fetlife, and though I got a few likes, no real comments.  Sorry for the thumbnail, but this blog is public.  I don't mind posting larger photos on fetlife because it's a more closed community (as of right now new memberships are closed until they can catch up).
What's my take from this?
1. It sucks starting from ground zero.  I would imagine if I were living full-time and keeping up (not having to shave everything), this wouldn't be quite as daunting.
2. Makeup takes practice, but this is possibly the best job I've done thus far.  Makeup tutorials help too, after all I'm not a woman so I don't know what works and what doesn't.
3. It sucks going through all this work, and all I have are some photos (of which apparently not a whole lot of people care about).  I can empathize a little with how women feel spending so much time getting ready, only to have boyfriends not appreciate it, or people in public not even noticing.  I would empathize with my wife, but she almost NEVER wears makeup.  You might say I'm even more attacted to wearing makeup because she doesn't.  I didn't used to be this way, I actually hated the idea of makeup smearing onto me from a kiss.  Now don't get me wrong, there's nothing I hate more than having lipstick and not wanting to take a drink like I normally would in male mode because I don't want to get lipstick on my cup.
