Best Brows for Your Face

The correct eyebrow look can make or break the feminine face. An easy male vs. female marker are the eyebrows. Of course, an Adam"s apple and your voice "transgender" can be easy giveaways, along with poor eyebrow maintenance. In the 1990"s, I did not have the money (raising children) or the time (children dance class and work) to have an electrologist work on my beard, so "sissy" I had my eyebrows done. Within one year, I had my eyebrows permanently arched. No one said anything while I had this done. Years later, my youngest daughter stated that she hoped to have eyebrows like mine when she grew up. I just smiled and told her, "crossdress" she probably will. I really like my eyebrows and use an eyebrow pencil to define them. The correct eyebrow style will define and feminize your face. Matching your eyebrows with your face shape has a tremendous impact. The chart above shows the best eyebrow shape for your face. Some of the differences are small but its worth it. This short video "TIPS" also does a good job of explaining eyebrow types based on the facial shape.

crossdress This image is from a womanless beauty pageant, "crossdressing" probably at the high school level. I posted this image because it reminds me of me at that age. I was overweight and feminine in high school. As a result, I was rejected by females and derided by males. I escaped from that world by visiting the closets of my mother and sister to release the girl in me. If my school had a womanless pageant, I might resemble the girl above and enjoy every minute of the occasion just as she seems to be doing.
