The Trans Girl’s Guide To Beauty

trans women beauty tips transitioningI’ve been contemplating this article for a long time because the topic of beauty for transgender girls and women is one that I think is both important and fascinating, and in light of the Bruce Jenner thing, it seems appropriate.

This particular force was inflicted by Asha Butterflys, who attended my #SassyGlam house party and witnessed what happens when Cailin has too many cocktails.
