      Personally i fall for natural looks, no makeup in the rain on a mountain, but maybe its just a sentimental thing. You do you :-) youre doing fine 🖖🏻 Dont go for huge lips tho, most men dont want a freaking sex doll x-)

    people assume i’m unintelligent or shallow because i have bright purple hair and wear makeup and crop tops, and i do enjoy doing fun makeup looks and buying clothes, but i also enjoy reading george orwell and doing algebra. it’s really annoying and i’m sure it’s 10x worse for trans women

    I think I heard the tunes of my favorite classical pieces in this video. I adore ContraPoints. I remember binging on a bunch of ContraPoints videos in an Airbnb in Prague. Really, how often do you remember a place/time watching a RUclip video, especially when you are on vacation.

    Beauty and Aesthetics are the foundations of civilisation. Those who dismiss beauty are the shallow ones. I love L.A. because of all of the beautiful people and Europe for the art & architecture. Nothing wrong with that! I am a CIS lesbian and I value art, beauty and aesthetics above all else; and the human and animal rights thing too but why not be stylish whilst freeing the people?

    I like your style. Um, yeah that does mean much coming from someone whos 6 months late to this video. But I think make up is how people Photoshop the things they don't like about there face. Or fun. Also SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TONER DOES!!! GOD I NO NOTHING ABOUT MAKEUP. I'm and artist so you think I could apply it alright but nope. No lt that it matters. I rub my face to much for it to stay on.

    all of your points show enough meat inside the female identity to fuel the struggle of the 'human' (based on english literature, usually it is male, so not sure how generalised that term can be) condition to leave Hamlet quaking. i noticed the changes because you have highlighted them this video, but before i didn't - i just thought you were looking especially beautiful these days!

    The moral is do what makes you feel comfy
    Eyeshadow and foundation is fun as fuck and a little eyeliner doesn't hurt. The mist is for setting that shit onto your face. It's all pretty simple

    I know I'm late but losing weight feels really similar to having surgery - I really don't feel any different in the way that I still feel fat even if I don't LOOK fat. I feel like a fat person who's somehow faking being not fat, especially while trying to erase all evidence that I was ever fat. Except I really can't cause that shit ain't just physical - I sure can get rid of the stretch marks and loose skin with surgery or for now just try to by angrily slathering myself with lotion every night, pinching the remaining fat on my hips until it bruises cause I'm supposed to increase the blood flow which will help with whatever enemy I'm fighting. It's a very visceral place

    but i mean to be fair the beauty standard is a standard for a reason, statistically speaking, more people would want to fuck kate upton than amy schumer there are traits and characteristics that are more desirable by a bigger group of people and that desirability ends up creating a standard.
    works with products too, why is every goddamn phone out there a slab? because the market (us) has shown a preference for that form factor
    i mean fuck, even goddamn babies (you know, the ones that can't talk and haven't had their mind warped) prefer looking at attractive faces

    There was a TedTalk where a model changed outfits and asked how valid the audience considered her scientific opinions. The audience found her more credible once she put on glasses, flat heel shoes, and a long cardigan. So what I take from that is cardigans are perfectly valid modern day security blankets.

    Girrrrl i feel u so much when you say that you can't tell if you're pretty or not, i feel exactly the same

  • Kenghym

    You won't see this... but you are stunning. And maybe it helps when I tell you, that 3 years ago I was confronted with your videos through very unflattering responses from... the other side. As a person who prides themselves in being critical I come over to watch what you had to say and had to discover that you are actually brilliant. While becoming a much more liberal person myself over the years I don't agree with you on every point and always imagined how wonderful an actual conversation with you could be. It's so rare to see someone entertain viewpoints in such a calm manner, trying to really get behind another persons view, even if you don't share it (fully). I like to think about myself as being somewhat of a kindred soul in this and am often critisized for not arguing a point. Of course I'm not, I'm not arguing at all! I just want to entertain ideas with people, is it really this hard to just... talk? Broaden your spectrum withou winners or losers? I think you might know that feeling, since you might not be the character you portray in your stunning videos, but most of all, a very cunning young woman who is very observative of the human condition. And while I couldn't assume to know you in any way, I like to imagine that you experience the same struggle that comes with this, as I have.

    I've been watching your content on and off for years now and always found it engaging and thought provoking in the most wonderful ways. This made you incredibly beautiful from the first time I heard you speak. And while you were always very beautiful to me, a pansexual transomething (still within 'egg' mode, if you allow me this selfdeprivation), this face suits you stunningly. I love it, and I adore you so much for your work - even if boring old me might disagree on some things.

    Please keep doing what makes you happy - you are making the world a better place by making people think; even if some might deep it superficial.

    When you say "my plastic surgeon is an artist", the only thing coming to mind is the plotline in later Castle seasons where plastic surgeon was creating clones of main characters and then threatened to cut main characters' faces off

  • Werewolf Country
    Werewolf Country 8 days ago

    As someone who had dysphoria growing up (cis but people would constantly bully me for my male attributes), the cosmetic procedures to fix dysphoria ARE still cosmetic. It's a privilege to be able to have these things done, this of course doesn't mean we shouldn't go through with them. I had crippling anxiety and suicidal thoughts around how my gender was perceived, I would question why I couldn't simply BE a cis man if that's how some people saw me but on the other hand WANTED to be the feminine woman I thought I'd been born as. In the poor area of the UK I come from, surgery isn't really an option when there are more pressing matters like lack of housing, lack of purpose and lack of jobs here, I agree once you fix the dysphoria with MTF / FTM / cosmetic surgery it can help people become a more well equipped citizen, but the healthcare system is already so strained here that it's hard to tell when something is a pressing matter or not as it can be subjective. I'm happy for you, but it is a privilege and a lot of trans women in poor areas outside of the US and even cis genders, don't get to live out their dreams of shushing/healing their dysphoria, be them gender or beauty.

    You want honest advice on your looks? Please wash your damn hair. It's so greasy that it looks wet. I'm a sweaty fucker and my hair doesn't even look that bad unless I skip four days of washing. You probably skipped a whole week... Gross! You have fine straight hair. You can't wash on a curly coarse schedule without looking like a drowned rat. Other than that dirty mop on your head, you look fine and should stop worrying about your looks.

    Attractive people are *vastly* more likely to be hired. Ask any overweight middle-aged woman with very marketable secretarial skills how easy it is for them to get hired these days.

    Does women in jail using makeup have something to do with conditioning? not the hair kind, i mean theyve been using it all their life every day, maybe it's just comfortable? (Im a cis white male incel, so idk)
