Painted Eyebrow Trends in Tang Dynasty
This is a chart showing different eyebrow trends in the Tang Dynasty. It’s based on a chart in Chinese Clothing by Hua Mei and Gao Chunming (2004), on pg 37. I wanted to create a chart that had the eyebrows on faces.
"Women of the Tang Dynasty paid particular attention to facial appearance, and the application of powder or even rouge was common practice. Some women’s foreheads were painted dark yellow and the dai (a kind of dark blue pigment) was used to paint their eyebrows into different shapes that were called dai mei(painted eyebrows) in general. There were literally a dozen ways to pait the eyebrows and between the brows there was a colourful decoration called hua dian, which was made of specks of gold, silver and emerald feather.” (5000 Years of Chinese Costume, 77)
"…during the years of Yuanho in the reign of Xuanzong the system of costumes changed, and women no longer applied red powder to their faces; instead, they used only black ointment for their lips and made their eyebrows like like the Chinese character ‘八’." (5000 Years of Chinese Costume, 77)
The black lipstick style “was called the ‘weeping makeup’ or ‘tears makeup’.” (Chinese Clothing by Hua Mei, 37)

Putting down confident girls is not feminism
shaming sex workers is not feminism
"I’m not like other girls" is not feminism
slut shaming is not feminism
shaming BDSM practitioners is not feminism
misandry is not feminism
ignoring trans women’s rights is not feminism
I hate that I have to wear my keys in between my knuckles in order to feel safe while Im walking alone.
I hate that I can’t look at anyone in the eye as to not give the wrong impression.
I hate that I can’t appear vulnerable while walking alone.
I hate that Im always ready to defend myself just incase.
I HATE that because I was assigned female at birth men feel it is okay to cat call me or yell at me while Im just walking by to get a fucking burger.
I hate that I ended up crying to my mom over the phone in my car because I didn’t have enough money for parking and I didn’t feel safe.
But Im grateful to have a wonderful partner who came to my aid in the parking lot and listened to my sobby rant.
