Full lips, protruding mouth with big teeth, upturned nose, big eyes and very pale skin (if you're white of course).

OP, when I think if feminine features, speaking as someone from the West, I visualize someone with symmetrical features, high or defined cheekbones, big/expressive eyes, petite or small/button nose, full lips, and small jaw.

I actually really like softer and more feminine features on a man, depending on the man. I've long had a crush in Cillian Murphy. I adore his features.

Cillian Murphy has a very interesting face. I like looking at it too. Don't have a crush, I just appreciate his interesting face.

I think Ashley Judd has the feminine features. In her prime 10 years ago. She has the full cheek bones, small mouth with full lips, tiny upturned nose, small chin, full forehead, and slightly cat shaped eyes. Also Vivienne Leigh has feminine features.

He has a bigger butt and he has boobs!!!!He also changed his name to a female name so I guess I should call him a her.
I'm male, skinny as a twig for my height (about 5' 8" or 8.5" @ 120 lbs), not much of hips or butt, flat chest, yet people find me effeminate-looking. I've even been mistaken for a girl, especially in my long-haired days. I think lack of testosterone is why, but I never bothered to get levels tested because I never cared enough to.

OP: basically I think a round face, high cheek bones, soft features, well-fitting clothes, and shoes girls tend to wear can make a person look feminine. When I used to be annoyed about people pointing out my effeminity, I looked to butch lesbians for guidance on how to dress--leather jacket (for a while), flannel, loose-fitting jeans and Doc Marten boots. Basically a grunge look. These days I don't care as much about trying to look more masculine and dress unisex (but in a bummy, disheveled way).

Yes to that hot Irishman - saw him in Wind That Shakes the Barley.

I think the single most important defining facial feature is the jawline. It is the reason Jen Aniston will always have a 'Fabio' quality to me, because it is too masculine.

haha, when i saw batman begins and saw cillian murphy, i thought that the directors had just hired a model (a great looking one at that) to do a quick role. i had no idea he was a real actor.



donth8me: yeah, same here. for me, i do not like strong jawline women like jennifer aniston and the worst offender sandra bullock. i like heart-shaped faces or those with a very soft jawline.

There is no such thing as an ultrafeminine or ultramasculine face, because another ethnic group will always see it differently. To many Caucasians, Miranda Kerr is feminine because she has a rounder face with thick lips and a button nose. But an Asian might argue that she looks manly because her cheeks are not as full as Asians and they might think her nose is TOO BIG and prominent. A Middle Easterner might think her eyes are too narrow (a masculine trait). Someone else might think her button nose is more bulbous, too wide, and masculine looking. It all comes down to proportions and what the viewer is focusing on. What is considered "high cheekbones" to one ethnic group might not be high cheekbones at all to another ethnic group. I am white, but I grew up associating tanned Caucasian skin with the prettier girls and hence tan skin to me is more feminine.

Show me a photo of anyone, and I can guarantee you that I'll find a way to argue he/she is masculine or feminine if I wanted to. It all comes down to culture and what you grew up associating with male and female (most likely based on your own mother and father and thereafter the people you went to school with). People tend to be attracted to those who have at least one or two similar physical traits that remind them of their opposite sex parent (if you're heterosexual), but enough differing traits to up the exotic factor and avoid inbreeding. A white girl might be attracted to a black guy because, although he may appear very different at first, he might have the same nose shape, lip shape, and face shape as she or her father. Same theories apply to body types, if you focus more on bodies.

Compared to my mother, my father had a large, prominent nose in proportion to the rest of his face and that was the first thing I always noticed when I looked at him. So I am most attracted to men with large, bony noses but otherwise different coloring or different face shapes. You see what I'm getting at here?
