What a handsome woman



 I think they should have a Barbie with a buzz cut.- Ellen 
                                



The androgynous trend has been making its rounds for years, and it has finally made its way back to the fashion runways and can be seen all over the red carpet of Hollywood! Everything from ties to slacks and mini skirts topped with a blazer.

               
                       


Even though, we are in the 21st century- shows such as "Desperate Housewives" has reinforced the stereotypical idea that woman aren't as strong as men and should continue to strive to look like stripper Barbie. Waiting at home with her brightly painted pink smile, and welcoming her husband home from a hard days work.             

Androgynous beauty, on the other hand, depicts an image of beautiful femininity mixed with a masculine attitude. 

Androgynous beauty is assertive, competitive, independent, and courageous! It does not neatly fit into a female or male gender role.       
  
And of course, It keeps Hilary Clinton from dressing like a Kardashian. (whew!)  
               

The androgynous look can be accomplished through the use of makeup. The trend of dark brows, contoured/sharpened features will give you a confident and empowering look. Then if you're bold enough, you can move on to hair and clothes.  

        How To get this amazing look
    
+Start with a natural face. You don't want to look as if you're wearing a foundation. Keep skin dewy and fresh to avoid looking too masculine. 

+Brows should be full and square shaped. Go a shade darker than your hair color. (Castor oil helps brows grow faster!)

+ Shade your eyes with a smokey eye pallet with browns, taupe, or dark silver.

+ Add a dark liner to give the mysterious spark.

+ Bronzer should be used to contour the cheekbone to give the illusion of having a sharp masculine facial shape (This is best created using both a fan brush to outline and a blush brush to fill in the shapes.)

+ Apply nude lipstick or lip balm.


 And Voila! You are now a woman of unified gender that defies social roles! XO
