Hi Karen,
Just wanted to write a quick note about the make up lesson last Saturday. Besides accomplishing the goal of giving me the confidence to apply on my own, you are so positive and reassuring. The first time I visited your house, my nerves were so revved up, now it’s like visiting an old friend. I always look forward to your feedback and kind words. It’s easy to see you enjoy helping us girls and the pleasure you receive when progress is made. Believe me, I never thought I’d get as far as I have, but with your help, my confidence keeps building.

Thanks again for all you do.

Hi Karen,
Just wanted to say "Hello"", we have not met (yet) but I hope to meet you whenever things calm down & we are able to move about again.

I recently purchased your instructional dvd and absolutely love it. I love the way you interact with the models and the whole presentation is great & extremely helpful!

I hope to maybe have a makeup application before one of your gatherings when things "open up" again (covid).

Also thank you very much for all you have done & are still doing for our "community".

I bought your DVD a few months ago and I have learned so much, it brings tears to my eyes - you can see and obvious change in makeup skills after I received your dvd. I have gotten better every time I practice, and absolutely I love it! Every time a gurl asks how I became so good at my makeup I send them a link to your DVD :)

I have met so many nice gurls in the area that have had appointments with you and enjoyed every minute of it. I would love to set an appointment with you in the future to learn more and get to know you. I love you and I've never met you!

I plan on being at a Femme Fever party very soon!!

Thank you for everything you have done, you have no idea how much you have helped me gain knowledge and confidence of makeup and myself. Thank you soooo much!

Stay safe, stay healthy, and I hope to meet you in person soon,

Hi Karen,
Just a quick note to say I received your makeup DVD, and honestly couldn't be happier! It was simple to understand and very informative. While I'm certainly still a novice when it comes to makeup, your DVD gave me much needed confidence.

I've tried to do makeup in the past and it never ever looked good. I never knew the proper order of application, the right method, or even how much to use. (usually too much!) Thanks to you, I now know less is more!

Your DVD answered all my questions, and I was quite pleased with my results and your encouragement will inspire me to go on trying other combinations!

Thank you again, for all the help and confidence your DVD gave me. You will be hearing from me as soon as I can figure out a schedule for a session. I look forward to meeting you in person. In the meantime, I've sent along a small gift via PayPal as a token of my gratitude to the happiness you given me.

Thank you so much!

I want to take a sec to send my appreciation for the makeover sessions you perform as a part of FemmeFever's services and to share my first experience with any other Girls who may be out and about or deciding whether they want to take that first step.

Let me start by saying that I still can't believe sometimes that it was Thursday, May 5 2016 at 7:30 PM that I first met you for a makeover session and photos. It is amazing to think about how much has happened in the short period of time since that first appointment and I cannot thank you enough for the services you provide to everyone in the community.

I came to Karen at the age of 46 looking to get my "look" back. I have associated inside as a female since age 6, and possibly earlier if I could remember that far back. I was always very private about my feelings and my crossdressing because it is just not something that was done or tolerated very well by my family or the neighborhoods I grew up in. I am proud to say that I had a pretty cool look going as a young girl and teenager. I embraced my GenX 80's child and could pull off a punky cheerleader or Patty Smyth style female rocker with the best of them, but again it was always very private.

When I went to Karen for that first meeting I brought the most ridiculous outfits because of my total lack of self confidence. I call it my mu-mu phase. Definitely clothes you'd see on someone buying 10 lbs of Chef Boy-Ar-Dee at Walmart at 1 AM LOL! Karen did not hesitate to politely push aside my wardrobe and pull out some really cute outfits from her inventory based on my one request... that I did not want to look like a stereotype of a crossdresser. Then Karen began my makeup session giving me the choice to see the process or wait until she finished and get a big reveal. I opted to see the process. Karen explained the technique every step of the way along with amazing tips and pointers to deal with the problems all of us girl's face... beard shadow, contouring, best makeup types, temporary eyebrow magic and so many other things that you'll have to experience for yourself. The transformation that Karen made with me was nothing short of absolutely amazing!

Next were the outfits that were so much more formfitting and shapely than anything I had thought I could wear and when I saw each new outfit and wig on me I was really almost speechless. Karen went through the proper way to pose for pictures, took a ton of photos for me with the promise that if I wanted, I would be the only one to receive them and she would purge them from her camera after sending them over and confirming that I got them. At the end of my session I "un-geared", removed my makeup with Karen's guidance and went home that night feeling elated. Karen sent the pictures over to me the next day and asked how I felt the day after. The response I gave Karen was simple. I told her that I was feeling a peace (not piece) that I did not know I was missing before and couldn't stop thanking her.

I was so happy with the session, everything I learned and everything I felt that I actually attended my first FemmeFever party 1 week later! It was the Spring Splendor party and I proudly attended with Karen having done my makeup before the party and wearing a cute floral fit and flare dress that I bought from Macy's for the occasion (actually I bought 3 because I couldn't decide). I still have the dresses today and they will be making their appearance at some event once Spring finally gets here.

So basically I went from a fully private non confident crossdresser for 46 years to a proud blonde (blonde at the time) attending her first party with the Crossdressing/LGBT community. Karen is incredibly talented, patient and knowledgeable at everything she does for us and will never move you along at a pace beyond what you are comfortable with. I cannot recommend booking a session with her strongly enough!!! Feel free to contact me at cherylvonsatin@gmail.com if you have any questions or need any support in making up your mind to have a FemmeFever session with Karen (oh and you'll learn why so many of my friends call me Jessica Rabbit too)!

Hi. I've been dressing on and off all my adult life. I've never been out in public dressed as a woman, partly because I had no idea whatsoever how to put on makeup. A few weeks ago I visited Karen, for the first time, who taught me how, in a wonderful, transformative 90 minute session. I always feel most comfortable when I'm dressed, but this was the first time I've ever been dressed as -- much less looked like -- a woman, in the presence of anyone else. I still haven't gone out in public yet. I've been waiting until I could finally apply the lessons she taught me by myself and look (almost) as good as when Karen did it. After several tries I couldn't come close. But tonight, I think, I may finally have succeeded making myself up to look like a woman. And so all I need to do now is be able to do it again, and then screw up the courage, and I'll get out there, looking like the woman I feel like inside.

Karen works miracles! But while practice helps, I see another lesson from Karen in my future very soon.



P.S. And if anyone has any questions about this wonder-working woman, please ask. You can reach me at llp646@yahoo.com.

This past Tuesday night I attended Karen's Makeup class. Besides the great group of gals there I had such a great time and taught me so much about what I have been doing. Karen was patient, helpful, funny, informative, and all this done with a smile and class. She took the personal time to help each and everyone of us. The results were so amazing. As the class ended and you slipped your wig back on after the changes, I felt wonderful. I saw the differences and the effect it had on me. I am telling anyone thinking about or wondering about taking Karen's class, JUST DO IT! You will not be disappointed. To me the one thing Karen does is never negative about what you were doing but more informative to make you improve your style and comfort in applying your makeup. Thank you Karen, Rebeccamarie rebeccamariechristie@yahoo.com

A fun night of learning and discovery its not just a makeup class but an night out with the gurls. I have been to two of Karen's classes with the first class being the first Time ever at a Karen event and I had an amazing time. You go there for the makeup but you come away with so much more. If you are just starting out or have been doing you own makeup for sometime. There is something for you here. Karen makes you feel safe and at home. It's a small class so everyone can get the help you need or want. You don't just have access to the talents of Karen you have everyone in the class learning from each other. Your not alone and this class makes you feel that. And at the end of the class you see the results and are amazed on how great you and everyone looks The most important part of the class is not the make up it's getting out and meeting other gurls. I have met some amazing people at all her events and made some lasting friendships from them. If you are thinking about taking a class I would say Just do it. Its an amazing night of laughs, Fun, discovery and makeup Victoria_sax@yahoo.com

"Hi gurls, I recently attended a group make up session at Karen's. This was the first in a group environment and I have had a private lesson with Karen as well. It was really terrific, informative, educational and most of all fun. I met some great gals and it really took my application techniques to the next level. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who wants to be proficient. We covered eye shadow, lashes, taping, contouring, etc. I can't wait until the next class! Thank you Karen! You really are awesome. CDKarli@yahoo.com "

Hi Karen, I want to commend you for the fantastic class held at your home. You showed me tips and techniques That I was totally unaware of and your hands on teaching was better than I could have imagined. The other girls at the class was very helpful as well and were a joy to be with Once again it was an exciting experience and everyone should go to your meetings and your classes and see how wonderful meeting you and the femmefever girls can be. Thank you Karen you're a goddess to our community, With love and great respect: Ellen Nicole Dijon ellenndijon@aol,com

Hi Karen, Thanks for the great makeup class. I learned sooo much last night! I know that I keep getting better and better at applying my makeup with each class that I take and the one last night was very informative. The professional techniques that you showed us for applying eye makeup, lip stick and foundation was especially wonderful! The class was sooo good in fact that it ran over by an hour!! The time went by so fast. The girls were great and we all had a very good time. It's too bad that I had to get home right away and I had to waste such a good makeup application. I can't wait to try the new techniques that I learned on my own! Thanks Again, Gabby :) MRacing24fan@aol.com

Karen, Just want to thank you for last night....not only for offering such a class, but also for your patience explaining and demonstrating the techniques you've discovered. I especially liked watching everyone attempt to "put a face on" per your instructions. Making mistakes is the key to learning how to do better. Doing so in a small group like that provided some comical moments. This made it an even more relaxed atmosphere which in turn made it easier to plunge in and try some of the techniques which I have watched other artists use on my face so often but have seldom had the opportunity to try to do myself. I came away feeling more confident about self-application. So....Bravo for your efforts to guide us; This tadpole is grateful that she attended! Thank you---------Donny donnybrooks@optonline.net

Thank you so much for your wonderful tutorial. My feeling going in was that if I only picked up one useful tip, it would have been worth it. Well, I definitely picked up many more than just one! Useful information to improve my look. I most definitely want to see you one on one for an even more personalized session. Moreover, the session was so much fun, and everyone so supportive. Just a positive experience overall. Talk to you soon. Jillian jilliangrl@gmail.com

I am so glad I went. Hugs, Diane dianegirl44@yahoo.com

As a part-time CD, after going to Karen's make-up class on 9/21 - I would like to assure other interested "GIRLS" that it was completely safe environment; informative and met (7) of the nicest CD's! Do not hesitate to take a class with Karen no matter what the subject. Sincerely Charlene axechuck231@gmail.com

Hello Karen, I had an absolutely wonderful time at your makup class. I learned so many things and you had so many great up to date cosmetic products. We had so much fun and laughs, it was one of the best experiences ive had. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who is contemplating or experimenting with CD as a great starting point. We had so much fun! For a beginner or a long time CD, this is the place to really start enjoying your Femme side or learn some more techniques. I did both! Love always, Melanie

> > The class was a wonderful educational experience lasting several hours in the privacy of Karens lovely and private location .

Karen's classes and events are well worth the trip from anywhere. I'm pretty good at doing my own makeovers, but I recently learned some valuable new makeup techniques in her class. The event was in her home, it was fun, and it was enjoyable to be around other t-girls. It was great having the social time after - after getting all put together it was nice to indulge it for a while. Karen is a warm-hearted person - she makes everyone comfortable and at ease. I'm looking forward to taking her Comportmant class and attending future FemmeFever events. - Michelle
