After making the biggest decision of her life in January 2010, Delia took the first steps as part of the transition from male to female – transgender. It took Delia over 50 years to build up the courage to make the change and I’m sure you can imagine how much of a traumatic life changing experience lay ahead for her. Myself and Bodilight clinic in Milton Keynes, Bucks are proud to have been a part of helping Delia in a number of ways with her transition and feel that our experience in dealing with such a delicate personal situation has assisted in her in feeling comfortable within our clinic environment.
Delia has undergone laser hair removal, permanent eyebrow and permanent eyeliner procedures and a selection of other treatments which she has been delighted with the results.
My role in Delia’s transition was to provide permanent cosmetic makeup to accentuate and soften her features. This was achieved by using permanent makeup using Nouveau Contour pigment colours and my expertise in applying the enhancements – also known as semi-permanent makeup and micropigmentation. The photos demonstrate how permanent makeup can enhance and change the whole face.
Delia had very few brows left that I could incorporate into the brow, and the shape was not feminine enough to show off her great brow bone, so it was a case of starting from scratch. I used permanent hair strokes techniques to create the shape and added powdering to give strength to the permanent eyebrow. Once the eyebrow was complete I then continued to the eyes and created a subtle permanent eyeliner through the lashes in ‘black is black’ colour pigment and finished the bottom eyeliner in a subtle deep purple black.
The results are stunning and bring out her beautiful natural eye colour. The next step at a later appointment will be to redefine her lips with a subtle permanent lip line and blended into her natural lip colour to redefine and repigment the area. This will be carried out at Bodilight Permanent Makeup Clinic very soon!
The whole process has convinced Delia that she wants to help others like her achieve transition as smoothly as possible. Through Delia’s own experiences she has built a range of relationships and contacts in all areas such as image and wardrobe advice, deportment lessons, voice coaching and much more.
