Girl Talk

Recently, I've been getting a fair number of questions from new girls, so I thought I'd turn them into a blog post. It's just a bunch of boring ol' girl talk, so all you guys, run down to Radio Shack or something. We'll meet you in the food court when we're done.

Q. How do you shop for women's clothes?

I have only gone shopping en femme a handful of times. It's a lot of fun and many clerks get into it a bit themselves. I know my sizes very well, so I rarely have to try anything on for fit. If I am en drab and want to see how something looks, I either ask my wife to try it on (we're the same size) or I try it on myself in the men's dressing room.

Q. Are your ears pierced?

It kind of surprises me that so many new girls worry so much about piercing their ears. In my area, practically every male under the age of 30, has both of their ears pierced. I got one ear pierced in my early 20s and the other pierced about 15 years ago. In all that time, no more than a handful of people have ever even commented on it.

If someone asks about your earrings, a simple, direct comment like, "Yes they are pierced. Aren't they nice?" will end 5 of 10 conversations. Another 4 of 10 people will go on to tell you they've always wanted to get theirs done, but were too scared. The last, stubborn person will make some negative comment. A simple, "Well, if I cared what you thought, I would have asked you first." will likely shut them up.

If you can't have pierced ears at work, you can replace the studs with a very small loop of fishing line, tied in the back. It's almost completely invisible and will keep the holes open for the time you are at work. When you get home, put the studs back in.

Q. What about shaving your body?

I regularly shave my chest, arms, underarms, and legs. To prevent ingrown hairs or rash, soak in a hot bath first and use hair conditioner in place of shave gel/foam. Again, I wear shorts in the summer and no one ever comments. Just be sure to have a witty comment like, "Yeah, they look pretty hot, don't they?" ready for anyone foolish enough to think their opinion about what you do with your body is important.

Q. What do you do about beard shadow?

It's all about taking care of your skin and having good foundation application skills. Here's what I do:

1) Use a good facial cleanser, toner, and moisturizer daily. Only use your fingers/hands to wash your face.

2) Exfoliate 2 or 3 times a week.

3) Before applying makeup, soak in a hot bath and shave using a new triple or quad blade, substituting hair conditioner for shave gel/foam. Shave twice - the first time, shave in the direction of your hair growth; the second, shave against the hair growth.

4) After my bath, I moisturize and wait a few minutes before applying makeup.

5) First, I apply a thin layer of CoverBlend (similar to DermaBlend you see in department stores). It's a thick, cream foundation used to cover scars/blemishes. I apply it very lightly over my entire face; a little thicker on my beard area.

6) Next, I use various shades of concealer to contour my face and make it appear more feminine. A very light shade goes down the bridge of my nose, under my eyes, and along the laugh lines. A darker shade is used under my cheekbones, on my forehead, and along the jaw line. Use a makeup sponge to blend everything, so you don't see any obvious lines where the color changes.

7) I have very dark facial hair, so I apply red lipstick all around my beard area. The red color neutralizes the blue shade of your beard shadow. When I'm done, it looks like I have a goatee of blood - always makes me crave steak for some reason LOL. I the dab the area with a sponge to take off some of the excess. Dab, don't smear it around. At this point, you'll look absolutely ridiculous, but after the next step, the red disappears, along with any beard shadow.

Use a makeup sponge to apply liquid foundation all over your face. Don't forget your neck area and make sure you blend so there are no visible lines of color change.

9) Apply loose powder, using a puff to "press" the powder into the liquid foundation. This sets the foundation and gives you a smooth, matte finish to work your magic with.

Hey, that was fun. Maybe I can get a job writing for Cosmo or something. Until they call, I better get back to work at my real job though. If anyone else has questions, please address them to: Jocelyn's Mailbag, c/o....blah, blah....

Until next time, peace!
