But in my mind I know they will still live on and on
But how do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn’t easy, but I’ll try
That would soar a thousand feet high ‘To Sir, With Love’
And as I leave I know that I am leaving my best friend
A friend who taught me right from wrong and weak from strong
That’s a lot to learn, but what can I give you in return?
But I would rather you let me give my heart ‘To Sir, With Love’
Almost every t-girl in Minnesota knows, or knows of, Corrie Dubay of Femme Makeovers. I’ve taken lessons with her, she’s done my makeup for photo shoots, and has been an amazing host for private shopping and makeup demonstrations for the MN T-Girls. Her newsletters highlighting different makeup techniques and tricks have been shared on this site and t-girls across the country rave about her. She is a jewel in the Twin Cities makeup scene.
But above all, she is my friend and I am lucky to know her.
Many of us saw her most recent newsletter yesterday announcing her move and relocation of her amazing gender transformation studio Femme Makeovers to Las Vegas. Although I am sad that my friend is moving, I am so excited to see what she does next.
Her latest newsletter announcing her final studio dates is provided below.
Corrie, thank you for all you’ve done. You will be missed, and you will be remembered as an ally, as an artist without peer, and above all, our friend. We’re all cheering for you.
XOXO to our favorite makeup guru,
Hello my darlings,
How have you been? Well… I’m going to cut right to the chase – I have some news. It is with an excited (and a little bit sad) heart I announce that my husband, the pups and I will be moving to Las Vegas next month! This is something I’ve wanted to do and thought about for many, many years. It’s really scary but also so very exciting at the same time. I’m not 100% sure what my plans will be other than I want to set up a studio (just like I have here) in Vegas and continue to do the thing I love – which is make you look and feel gorgeous!!!!!
I will keep everyone posted via my website (www.femmemakeovers.com) and newsletter as to what is going on (much of the website and how newsletters are sent will not change). Please bear with as it will take a little bit of time to get situated, find a new studio space, etc., but!!! In the meantime – will most likely be doing on-site work (ie: I would come to you). For now – my email and phone number will all stay the same so feel free to reach out with any questions you have.
What now??? Don’t worry! I will be taking session (both makeup and dress up) appointments through the first week in June. Right now – it looks like June 7th or 8th will be my last day to book anything. If you’ve been wanting to get in to see me – now is your chance! (And may I suggest booking sooner than later so you can get the day/time you want). Otherwise – you’ll have to hop a flight to Vegas and see me out there (which most definitely wouldn’t be a bad thing…if you ask me!) 🙂 If you have questions or want to book an appointment – please email me.
Before I wrap things up – I wanted to touch on two quick things. First – as many of you know – I don’t take any personal photos of the work I do. I do this mainly to protect the privacy of my clients….however – I tend to run into problems when people ask if they can see some of the transformations I’ve done. I have next to nothing to show!!! 😦 If you’ve ever done a session with me and are willing to share any photos we took – please let me know. My plan would be to use them on my website gallery and possibly on Instagram. If that’s something you’d be willing and interested in doing – please email me here for more details. Also – please feel free to share this info with any friends you have – whether it’s here in MN, out in Vegas or anywhere else!! I’ll need all the help I can get with re-establishing Femme Makeovers. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Lastly – I want to say THANK YOU for being such wondering clients. I will miss everyone so much. I have had so much fun over the past few years transforming people…watching someone who I am worried might pass out in my chair from nerves….transform into Sassy Pants rocking a smoky eye, bright red lips and a pair of stilettos. It is one of the BEST feelings in the world to see that attitude and confidence shift. I am so thankful you allow me to be part of such an important part of your life. I thank you for all the fun times and great memories at Suite 267!! I look forward to even more fun, debaucherous times out in Las Vegas though!! STAY TUNED!!!!!! 😀
Okay – I have some packing to do!! If I don’t see you in St. Paul – perhaps on your next trip to Vegas!?!?
XOXO from your favorite makeup guru,

I’m bummed to hear this… partially Corrie is who I would have gone to for a makeover if I was ever in town for an MN T-Girls gathering.
That being said, Las Vegas is home to a pretty awesome T-Girl gathering called Diva Las Vegas in early April… you should go check it out sometime… I want to do it one year.
