Bruce Jenner Looking More Feminine

So Bruce Jenner has ruined his nice eyebrows by tweezing them, but I don't think it makes him look more feminine. Just weird. That said, I was trying to figure out what I could do to make him look more feminine. Here's my first attempt. I gave him more hair, opened up his eyes, raised his eyebrows, gave him bigger lips, and shrunk his jaw.

Khloe Kardashian with Less Chin

So if you compare Khloe Kardashian's face to the Marquardt beauty mask, she has too much chin (like Kylie Jennier used to have) and her nose is wide, short and crooked. So I messed with her face to see how she'd look with less chin. Here are the results... It's strange how having a smaller chin makes her lips look bigger.

Kylie Jenner's New Face

So, as mentioned, I looked for photos of Kylie Jenner so I could do a good before and after. It's hard to find good after photos of her because most of her pics are selfies at bad angles with pouty lips. Anyway, I found these though and even though she doesn't have the huge lips in the after photo, I think the only major difference is her chin and possibly the lips.

A woman who got brow bone implants

Sometimes when I see photos of FFS patients after surgery to their brow bones, I think the results look too flat.  In fact, when people's eyes protrude past their brow bone, they look bug-eyed to me. I've noticed this isn't uncommon in Asians, to have eyes that stick out further than the forehead.

That said, when I saw an article about a Japanese woman, Vanilla Chamu, who had surgery to look like a French doll, I noticed her deep set eyes immediately. I knew she'd had brow bone implants so searched and found an article that mentions them. I don't think the surgeon did a very good job though, but thought I'd post the results here.

So she basically decided she didn't want to look Japanese. She wanted to look like a French doll. She's like an FFS patient, but instead of changing gender, she changed ethnicity.

Ode to Straight Noses - Part 7

More straight noses (reminders that if FFS doctors say you need to have a scooped nose to be beautiful, it is not true).

Jenna Elfman (she is  not beautiful straight on, but is picture perfect in profile)

Loretta Young (she was an actress long, long ago)

This is just a post card. I have no clue who the woman is but thought she had a pretty straight nose.

Just a random photo off the internet, but her profile is lovely.

Mischa Barton
Nicole Scherzinger. Too turned up for my tastes, but definitely straight.

Ode to Straight Noses - Part 6 (straight profiles by artists)

Since I usually post photos of people I thought I'd post something different. So here are profiles of beautiful women as portrayed by artists.

Charles Dana Gibson

This is Gibson Girl. She is gorgeous. I don't think she could be any more feminine. Feminine, but adult. Not child-like. Full lips, small mouth, beautifully shaped face, perfect nose, high cheekbones... She was the  personification of the ideal woman of his era, but I think she could be the ideal for an era with that bone structure.

Harrison Fisher

Harrison Fisher was an artist known for his illustrations of beautiful women. This is what the man did for a living. He drew beautiful women.

A very beautiful woman as drawn by the illustrator Harrison Fisher.
Another Harrison Fisher illustration (although this woman has a tiny bump on the bridge). Clearly beautiful though. Clearly feminine.

McClelland Barclay

He was another illustrator. I just thought I'd include this since it shows a comparison between a masculine and the feminine nose.

Feminine and masculine noses (both straight) by McClelland Barclay


This is Nefertiti, as portrayed by an artist well over 3,300 years ago. It is believed that the sculptor is Thutmose. Anyway, Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen known for her beauty (as if this wasn't obvious).

Nefertiti - 3,300 year-old proof that straight noses have always been considered beautiful =)

Christina Ricci with a forehead reduction - Better? Worse? Masculine? Feminine?

This probably isn't the best photo to start with since Ms. Ricci's hairline looks kind of crooked, one eyebrow looks higher than the other and her smile is leaning one direction too, but here she is...

Christina Ricci "before" (with her naturally high forehead) and "after" (with a shorter forehead)

Does she look less masculine? Some FFS doctors say that women have lower hairlines (although this is not true). So if you believe that, then she should look more feminine, right? But to me her masculinity/femininity seems unchanged. She looks better to me, but not more feminine. I think this is because her hairline has a feminine shape to it. It's not receding at the corners at all.

One thing that COULD affect masculinity and femininity when lowering a hairline is how the overall proportions of her face change. If Christina had a long chin, and we made her hairline lower, her chin would look longer in relation to her forehead. As an example, here's Bill Clinton.

Bill Clinton "before", with his natural hairline, and "after", with a lower one.

Mr. Clinton has a long chin, but it's somewhat balanced out by his tall forehead. It's not the first thing you notice when you look at him. But when you make his forehead smaller, the focal point of his face changes and the balance goes off kilter. He, like Christina Ricci, does not look more feminine with a lower hairline. If anything, I think he looks more masculine with that big chin.
