j) Two eyebrows, one above each eye, one to the right and one to the left
k) Eyelashes affixed both above and below the eye; this applies to both eyes
l) Eye interior - various parts including cornea, retina, pupil, iris, etc. This applies to both eyes.
m) That little divot just beneath the nose (called the philtrum in anatomy textbooks)
n) Eyelids; one for each eye
o Tongue, when it is stuck out to lick something, give someone the raspberry, or freeze its tip to a cold flagpole

Optional Accessories

a) Moles and "beauty" marks
b) Age spots
c) Crow's feet, laugh lines, and other wrinkles
d) Make-up (mostly noticed when there's too much of it)
e) Scraggly little hairs above the lip or on the cheek (electrolysis is helpful here)
f) furrows on the forehead ... makes one look like a Klingon if they're too deep
g) Glasses
i) Dimples, for that irresistably pinchable look
j) Cleft in the chin
k) Bangs, good for covering up Klingon-like forehead furrows (see item f)
l) Pimples, blackheads, and other signs of acne
j) Scars and pockmarks from getting chickenpox later in life
l) Other scars, like from that night when you went into biker bar and tried to take "Cobra" from his biker chick girlfriend (if only you knew she had a knife ...)
m) Overbites and underbites
n) Braces (for some) and those awful wire frames that stick out of the mouth and go all the way around the head (for those even more unlucky)
o) Bits of food or a milk mustache for those women who are untidy eaters. (Food goes into the mouth, not around it)
p) Oil - some women have lots of it on their skin so that they shine as if just buffed and polished with Turtle Wax
q) Various piercings, especially in the nose, lip, and eyebrow. Special note: piercings are often mistaken for item "o" on this list when seen from a distance)
r) A neck, irresistably wringable, especially the person's neck who wrote a post like this one.


LOL

Is this thread going somewhere or is it but a whirlpool in the grand scheme of C-D?

OP you might like this brand!
Saint Harridan - Sleek Masculine Suits for Women and Transmen - Saint Harridan

It is pretty tricky if you have a femme shape and femme features. Do not know if you plan on taking hormones, but maybe working on makeup tips to make your jaw look a little more square. And of course choosing the appropriately tailored clothing to hide your feminine shape.

What about weight lifting? The super muscled women weight lifters look very masculine to me. If you have delicate facial features, the bulked up masculine body might offset that. Are you planning any type of hormone therapy?

I'm pretty good at hiding my feminine shape. I have an androgynous body shape since I have broad shoulders smaller hips in comparison I have a good time dressing my body all I have to do is wear a binder and I'm good. It's just my face. I have a "male" voice. It's a prepubescent boyish voice around 12 I can go deeper into my chest voice to be even deeper but it's still male. So I have everything but the face which gets on my nerves. Because it's a big factor.

I tried contouring it gives me a harder look but my cheekbones soften it and my lips just are a dead giveaway.

I don't want to take T most of the time because I don't have body dysforia. Idk if i'd even be allowed since I don't mind my body as it is I actually look it.

I actually am exercising to accentuate my masculine trait. Just when presenting as male I really have no idea what to do with my lips. Maybe I guess just accept there's some things I can't change I suppose.

Anyway, you can continue the racial discussion if you want this thread closed. Cause it's not acceptable on this site.
Michelle phan has minimized the appearance of her lips in videos. You have to use lipliner to shape the lips as you want them, then use foundation on the outside of the outline so that it looks like your skin.

And then michelle has applied a pink lipstick to her inner lips which makes them look a bit smaller
wow what an idiot?

so btw,what if some races have feminine faces but masculine bodies(hint hint)

I do seem to think you like to see what you want to see in terms of standards of beauty. I know the exact story you are referencing that was quickly debunked. I do have to wonder though, if it was such an obvious conclusion, why isn't there a ton of academic research on the topic.

One important thing I have learned (and this was reinforced by a visit to the Museum of Sex. If you are in NYC it is actually a really cool museum to check out), is that there are some things that are innate in human sexuality and attraction, and many other things that are defined by your own society. This translates across cultures and across animal species.

So for people in "western society" fair skin, youthfulness, radiance and delicate features have been defined as "feminine." And in other culture different ideals predominate. Some culture like wide hips, some like narrow hips. Some like small waists and big butts, others like small waists and big hips with flat butts. Some like big breasts, others don't like that at all. And of course individuals have their own preferences too.

Other than symmetry, there isn't much in terms of universal beauty.

Symmetrical features is probably most important.

Miranda Kerr is an example of a youthful, feminine face or Adamari Lopez. But then again Sofia Vergara has a pretty feminine face.

Masculine is Gisele Bundchen or Rihanna

Oh and as for minimizing. There is surgery for that. I just personally avoid red lipstick or lipstick period since it makes lips look bigger ha. Monkey lips (as a guy friend once called them) aren't exactly attractive ha

Miranda Kerr is a good example, even though she does have kind of a large nose. But still she looks youthful and very feminine.

I do not want to add to what many posters here also said, for they already nailed it. I just want to say that having one of these features does not make everyone feminine. Plenty of men have small noses, for example, but look very much like men.

Just like some women have features that may be associated with masculinity, but in total they look very much feminine.

By the way OP would you mind posting a photo of yourself? I no longer get this, but I used to be mistaken for a girl when I was 13 and younger. It changed with puberty.
