    For me I have to say it is the makeup and embarrassment... I used be very embarrassed by dressing. Now I am at the stage in my life where I saw why the hell should I cam what other people think!

    I still struggle with makeup. I?m entering the world of Being. Drag Queen but I want to look like a real girl not a clown. So I am working still to get better at makeup. This weekend I am learning how to do a nice smoky eye!

    Definitely eye make up! I even had instruction and can't get it straight!
    My being naive about all this until I was 65! Yes I realized much of it but did not apply it to myself! Oh, yes it is me alright! LOL
    The decision to start HRT!
    Seriously!

    • Finding time to dress without discovery while deeply in the closet.
    • Finding a safe, non-obvious, hiding place for my things.

    Initially it was trying to understand my urge to try on female clothes followed guilt, confusion and questioning my sexuality.

    Eyeliner. I love an intense Arabic style and I usually wind up screaming, "good enough" after spending way too much time struggling with it. I also have to take 2 tries to get false eyelashes in the right position.

    Something that i had difficulty with at first was finding the right type of female clothes to suit my figure. (i don't use forms/padding)
    Fortunately i am short and skinny and my hip to waist ratio is very good compared to most GMs, but even so i quickly discovered that some clothes that looked great on women didn't look good on me.
    I had some great guidance from my wife about garments to try and have now found certain looks that suit me.

    Yes, i had the same feelings of confusion, shame & guilt when i began experimenting with CDing, altho in my case i was always clear about my sexuality.

    That I was initially a sexual delinquent and was far from the normal. After a while, I realised it was the vanilla world that was in denial of their true selves.

    As to the dressing, the epiphany on why I cant hook a bra from the back.... large man arms dont stretch like a nat gg.

    I got a free tube of lip gloss from VS. You may want to try some if you have trouble putting on lipstick or just want something a little less obvious. I've been putting it on before going to work.

    I've practiced makeup consistently and watched tons of videos on techniques . Whenever i dress i have a specific makeup look in mind.

    I struggle with certain heels. 3" heels is my limit or i basically can't walk

    Some heels are designed only for looks and are terrible for walking.
    I studied the reviews before choosing what to buy.
    I've gone shopping in heels.

    Great advice Marion. I used to struggle with lipstick all the time. Tried lip gloss a while back and haven't used lipstick since.

    I tried False Eyelashes today for the first time. What a joke. Man they make looking like a woman tough. I am gain a lot more respect for what women do every day. My hat is off to them.
    I will practice my eye lashes more.

    Here is what I've struggled with:

    - Guilt and shame about enjoying cross-dressing. Self-acceptance.
    - When I started cross-dressing as a teen, fighting myself to not do it when I had the opportunity. I could only cross-dress when I was alone at home, and it was hard to predict when this would happen. So when I was alone, I tried not to do it. Mostly failed.
    - The fear of getting caught. I played it safe most of the time, but one time I risked putting on a front-close bra when I wasn't alone because I'd never done it before.
    - Guessing clothing sizes. I'm not brave enough to shop in stores, so when I started buying clothing it was a guessing game about what would fit.

    In the beginning! I have large feet and when I first started it was nearly impossible to find women's shoes larger than 10 or 11. When you did find a pair, they looked like they were designed by Dr Who. That was a struggle. These days everything is a click away.
