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.

Interesting notes

"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 ‘’." (5000 Years of Chinese Costume, 77)

The black lipstick style “was called the ‘weeping makeup’ or ‘tears makeup’.” (Chinese Clothing by Hua Mei, 37)

confused anti truscum who don’t actually know what they’re protesting count: 3

your cis, it aint even your word to be using

why are cis people so adamant about being considered truscum when they’re just transphobic

Serious answer: because nobody wants an educated and passionately-held opinion of theirs written off as prejudice.

Unfortunately also applies to uneducated opinions. Like yours.

nah cis ppl legitimately can’t be truscum like it’s impossible because truscum is literally a term for trans people who uphold transphobic and transmisogynystic ideals of gender and gatekeep gender where when cis ppl do this it’s just plain old transphobia and transmisogyny. but keep trying lmao

I could care less that you’re mad that your name-calling has been embraced by the community that you’re trying to put down. Is that all you have to say? Is that your grand issue? Cool. Then we’re settled.

I’ll be here caring about important things, not crying about vaguely offensive shit that strangers say and slinging around assumptions about thousands of individuals that I’ve never met before solely because their opinion, which has been reduced to internet buzzwords, is different than mine.

Today I spoke with the mayor and my landlord and got Actual Things Done, which was awesome. My tummy is momentarily cooperating and I am fiendin for some empanadas.

Finding out that I like children a lot more than their fully-grown counterparts. I bought some candy for the kids downstairs but I’m too shy to give it to them and I may just end up eating it all.

trans women dont have to be feminine to be ‘valid’
trans men dont have to be masculine to be ‘valid’
nonbinary people dont have to be androgynous to be ‘valid’

nice truscum post

how is this in any way a truscum post. op is anti truscum what the hell

cis ppl arent even allowed to decide what a truscum is or isnt tbh

Why does it even matter who’s cis and who isn’t? Why does it matter what ideology you align yourself with? All opinions are subject to the same criticism. Since, y’know, equality and all that jazz.
