Disguising that Manliness or Passing or both

Since my last chat I have found the links to the subjects I mentioned in the last blog. I had to do a search on the Angels site, and so the links are quite long. I’ve included the links rather than cut and paste the text in defferrence to the original authors. I guess that means todays blog is going to look distinctly scruffy.

The post about hiding those manly characteristics was actually called “18 Ways to Disguise Maleness”, and the bit on eyebrows goes like this.

18. Bushy eyebrows This is covered elsewhere on the site but plucking your eyebrows can greatly improve passibility, especially if you have a pair of Dennis Healey, woolly-bear caterpillars above your orbits. Always pluck from the bottom, pluck gradually and try not to get carried away. A visit to a professional beautician is a good idea at first, just to get the style that suits. You can buy eyebrow shaping kits from highstreet chemists but I’ve never actually tried them out.

“Oh bother”, I thought on reading the paragraph, “Now I’ve got to find more eyebrows!”, so I went looking for them, and I quickly found a better bit on the hairy things in a post called “Tips on Passing” That one goes like this.

Eyebrows Pay attention to eyebrows – if you can’t pluck them into a reasonable shape then you can conceal them and draw new ones. To conceal eyebrows, paint the brows against the direction of growth with a theatrical make-up adhesive and when it is tacky, press down. Next, smooth over the eyebrow with Kryolan Eyebrow Plastic (from Charles Fox) and use a sponge to apply a thin layer of Lashfix colourless eyelash adhesive on top (this forms a “skin” which provides a good base for foundation). Use a very soft eyebrow pencil to draw new brows and try to be realisitic! This takes a bit of practice but the results can be excellent.

There are lots of interesting bits and pieces in those links, and you don’t have to register with Angels to read them – don’t you get miffed when you see a link to a very interesting blog etc, and when you get there, you have to register with another flipping site to read it? I guess it’s the way the blogs have been set up – but I’ve joined enough sites already – I don’t need any more. If your blog is not for public access, I’m going to lose interest fast – unless of course it is on one of the 3 sites I’m registered with already.

Happy blogging and surfing, Anna.

    Hi Anna

    Yes great links those.

    Interesting topic ‘eyebrows’. When I first started dressing, I thought that altering them in any way would be a big no-no with my wife along with growing nails and removing body hair. But funnily enough, she actively encourages me to get and keep them trimmed. Ok she is not wanting to see a feminine arch, but she really hates the Denis Healey mad professor look, and doesn’t see that as me being overtly feminine when in male mode, whereas she hates it when my nails grow beyond a minimum. Maybe it will be ok when longer nails become an acceptable part of modern man.

    I was only eyeing up my eyebrows this morning, thinking that they don’t look a bit girlie, no matter what Jay thinks about plucking them and then….

    I popped into your blog, and realised you have such delicate eyebrows, they make mine look so blokey, I could spit – but I won’t, cos I’m a lady – LoL.

    HHHMMM, now where are those tweezers?

    I’m glad the links were interesting for you though.

    Hugs Anna x

    I’ve been plucking away at my eyebrows for years, hoping to get them sufficiently fem for Angie and not too obviously fem for when I’m in male mode. The results were definitely more male than fem.

    Then last year, whilst spending a whole week as Angie with a friend, I plucked (!) up courage to go to a professional beautician. I asked her not to overdo it as I had to revert to male mode at the end of the week. The result was amazing and I spend the next few days admiring myself in the mirror whenever possible. It’s also really fantastic to be pampered!

    Hi Angie,

    Thanks for you comment,

    I was just sauntering through my blogs, checking for comments, and I spotted yours and realised my reply was missing; so I want to apologise for not replying properly. I say properly because I did write a reply, but it’s not there. I didn’t mean to be rude, or ignore you, so lots of sorries. I’m not sure if I logged off wrong, or I got a crash, (my broadband has cut me off a few times lately %*@, ) or I just failed to confirm my own comment – LoL. Am I a Techno Muffin or what? – he he.

    I’d take great delight in some pampering myself, but the closet is well and truly locked. You have given me another experience to add to my to-do list – should I get ever get the freedom to try. LoL.

    Hugs Anna
