    I myself am very girly/feminine simply because I ike that stuff shopping, hair, makeup, however I dont physically feel feminine broad shoulders, hairy, big feet etc. I feel more femine when my hair is long orjust styled nicley and wear even a small heel ( im also very tall). Sparkly jewelry and dresses make all the differnce. I also take time to take care of my skin and practice yoga ( its good for lengthening and making your muscles look more long n lean or lady like) also painting my nails. I believe everyone can look and feel beautiful if u want too just takes a little effort. Unfortunately all these celebrities make us normal people seem not so pretty but everyone can look just as good or even better.

    I agree, just think about what makes any girl more feminine looking, even if she has strong features. Long hair, or hair accessories if you have short hair, and girly shoes with dresses, skirts, jewelry, and painted nails. If you don't like skirts or dresses, find tops in pinks and peaches that have girly details like ruffles or pleats, instead of plain t-shirts. Makeup is not necessary, but strong eyelashes and a light colored lip gloss can help.

    I think the real proof of the pudding comes when, after you make the effort to polish yourself with the traditional feminine trappings, a guy you really like looks at you 'that certain way' and proceeds to treat you in a soft, gentle manner. It's the ultimate feedback and it allows you to relax and feel comfortable reciprocating as a true woman.

    I wear flip flops everyday, since middle school. I love my feet, so I show them off. I'm also a dancer, so I also have an emotional connection to my feet. If that doesn't sound creepy. My feet make me feel pretty. I also am naturally blonde and have ocean blue eyes. I love that I have that lotto ticket win. I love my eyes perhaps more than my hair though, because though my hair is the perfect color, its not the style I prefer. I am naturally wavy and a lil past shoulder length... I want strait and longer hair, that droops just above my chest/boobs. But I am aware that these are traits most would die for and of course that adds a boost of feeling pretty. I feel my most feminine and most beautiful, when I'm sporting the latest fashion trends or big brand names. Not every woman looks good in a skinny jean (me included), but when I find trends that celebs are wearing that actually work for me, it makes me feel like a million bucks. Especially, my favorite high brands, i.e... Coach, Holister, Victoria Secret (Duh!!), Juicy, Cebu, Von Dutch, Chanel (Again, Duh!!), Gucci (Another Duh!!)... I'm getting so excited just naming them. haha :o) Hey... For the 15 yr old girl asking about feeling prettier in hs... Try wearing a celeb trend that you like and always use your manners too, its not only lady like, but makes you feel lady like. But when all is said and done, its not the makeup, clothes, whitening strips or hair style that makes you beautiful, its how you see yourself and show off what you do love about yourself, personality and looks... that ultimately makes any lady, beautiful.

    While I do enjoy shopping for clothes, makeup, hair products, and most things that are considered "girly," personally just wearing an outfit that I really like makes me feel feminine. I'm 16 and I being in high school I know that there is this pressure to be feminine. It's all about what makes you feel beautiful because if you don't feel beautiful, chances are you won't feel feminine. Find a pair of pants that compliments your legs (straight jeans are always a good place to start), and a shirt that compliments your skin tone and figure. For example, if you are on the curvier side, try a shirt that nips in at the waist, or one that flows. I know from experience that it can be discouraging at times, but if you keep with it, you'll find some items that you will love. Another thing, while looking at the latest trends can be helpful, I wouldn't put all my money on them in terms of the perfect outfit for you. For example, something that is trending is patterned pants and skinny jeans, but both make my thighs look enormous. In conclusion, find stuff that makes you feel beautiful whether it's a hairstyle that you fell in love with or a certain outfit that you couldn't live without, just be careful when it comes to looking at the mannequins and the fashion magazines, because what's on trend doesn't look good on everyone.

    I do enjoy shopping as well but sometimes i buy something, for example a shirt and i think ''wow its beautiful i want to buy it'' than i try it and i buy it and then at home like everything changes, the top is still pretty but i feel so fat in it :( at least i wear an uniform ( or just a tshirt) at school so i dont have to worry alot about what to wear.

    For me, when I was in high school, I felt the bitter pressure of being incredibly girly and ultra-feminine because I felt that if I didn't I would be ridiculed or looked at differently. So, I dressed in clothing that showed off my curves (I was given them in the fourth grade xp) and I wore make-up as well as straightening and letting my hair down because I was tired of wearing it in a bun all the time. Of course, while my looks changed, it didn't change my mannerisms any because while I looked the look, I was still incredibly shy and-as some of my friends put it-socially awkward. So, I read up on how girls my own age worked the feminine style and I dressed comfortably while still managing to look good and wore make-up that wasn't too overbearing for my face. Because, paisean, make-up can only take a person so far. Now, when I have to get dressed up (sometimes I do so for the heck of it) or even just pamper myself, I felt incredibly feminine. All in all, to be feminine, just be as beautiful as you believe yourself to be. And if that means pampering yourself, by all means, go for it. :) Just remember: You're already pretty in your own way.

    First Off, the ideal beauty has been falsely fostered upon women as demonstrated by this particular person who states she was given the Lotto Win Ticket. I was speechless. In order to feel feminine, a women needs to first feel good about being a women. This is the basis for self-esteem and beauty, no matter how it manifests. We live in a Diverse Country where blond hair and blue eyes are not the only symbols of beauty. Who has been voted the most beautiful woman, as of late in Hollywood: Jennifer Lopez, the woman in the Middle, Tyra Banks, Selma Hayek, etc. This demonstrates that women want to be happy in their skin and not longing to be in another's skin. Beauty comes in all shapes, colors, and forms. No matter how masculine a woman may be, there are days and ways that she may feel female inside. I belief I am a beautiful woman with my light brown eyes, olive clear skin, wavy brown hair and pouty lips. But what made me understand how to be beautiful was feeling good about myself. I had to learn to love myself, like myself and then through the process, became engaged in being who I am. I am very lady like, most the times, naturally. And I know that I am not the cookie cutter example. Once I felt deep love for me, I do not mean being self-engaged or obsessed with my looks, I was able to love all of me. I pray this to happy for all women.

    Hi Paisean, It's hard to answer your important question without seeing how you do your hair and makeup. And what sort of clothes you like to wear. I'm a beauty editor and would be glad to give you some practical advice, if you would want to send a photo to YouBeauty and ask them to send it on to my email address. Or you could send a photo to me at work:- Email: admin@mobilebeauty.uk.com marked 'For Lindy'. We're on Facebook, if you want to check. Of course, always ASK YOUR MOTHER before you send any photos of your face and hairstyle to anyone online. Regards, Lindy

    I am no longer a girl. I am a 69 year old woman who has discovered the real meaning of being beautiful. It is simply being yourself. It is simply liking the natural assets that God has given you and forgetting the often times very enhanced beauty of the stars. Be happy. Stay active. Surround yourself with positive thinking people. Forget about the latest fashions and dress the way that makes you feel pretty and comfortable. Let your outward glow be lit by what comes from within! Intelligence is very sexy.

    OceanBlues: You haven't kept up with the times have you? I agree with BeautifulOchun! It's not just blonde haired, blue eyed women who are the ideal for men. Men are actually into women with intelligence, a sense of humor & most of all...CONFIDENCE!!! A brunette, a blonde & a red-head can each walk into the same room & the one that has the confidence will draw more men to her. A woman with poise & charm will be seen as more feminine.

    Hi Paisean: I'm 48 years older than you, an RN (still working, a RN nurse manager), been married over 40 years & guess what? My husband, I know, still finds me attractive.! And we went out to lunch today; I found some men looking over at me, giving me the eye..now, I am overweight (by the ht. and wt. charts), but I always keep my hair in the latest styles (used to be long, but now a shag-bob with lighlights, and my hair is brown), wear makeup, not too much, & make sure my clothing is neat. Also, I love my brown "puppy dog" eyes and they are fun to do w/ eye makeup. What makes me pretty? My personality! I was laughing with my husband at the restaurant, & trying to shoot a pic of him via my new iPhone. We laughed out loud! Also, I love to give myself manicures and pedicures and occasionally I treat myself to professional facials. After all these years, I know I project confidence and when I am at work, I greet each person with a big smile and a "Good Morning to you today!" greeting. That makes me feel pretty. So a lot of the prettiness comes with years, as you grow. That's the beauty of life itself. Best wishes as you travel its roads! JoannieO

    My dear Paisean: Oh, where to begin? Femininity, beauty, etc., is not a visible, physical outward appearance. Although, at 15, I vividly remember my own insecurities about my looks, or lack of them! I wish I had had Any confidence at that age. I am in my 40's now and overweight, but, am more comfortable in my skin now than I was then and have ever been. Don't despair, you have the ability to learn how to acquire that and more right now. I understand. I felt like the "Ugly Duckling" of my family. Even my friends would ask if I was adopted when they saw the pictures of all of my (beautiful and handsome!) cousins! Even my own mother looked like a movie star-no joke, I'm serious, she was gorgeous! I am the family "Plain Jane". So, I am going to tell you what I wish someone would have told me then. 1) Accept yourself as you are on the outside and realize you have more to offer people than an outside image. Honesty is beauty in itself. Both come from the inside and helps you to know yourself and to discover and grow into who you are now and will be. Accept that you are on a journey of finding out who you are. Have fun! 2) Try not to compare yourself to Anyone: family, friends, frenemies, enemies, Hollywood stars, or models!!! You have a beauty and femininity that they don't have! Remember, be true to yourself, even if that changes from day-to-day. That's OK; that's part of the fun. 3) Do what you like and makes you happy. Whether it is dancing, singing, playing an instrument, reading, playing sports (on a team or for your own pleasure), pursuing a hobby, etc. If you are doing something you enjoy, and improving yourself in some way, although it's not mandatory, you will learn more about yourself. This will develop a confidence that you didn't know you had, because it is coming from within. Also, my father always said, "If you are bored, YOU are Boring." I am not saying that you are boring, but, it reminds me that I am responsible for my own happiness and attitude, not anyone else. 4) Develop principles and set high standards for yourself and decide what are the most important criteria and qualities for being a friend and what you want from a friend, and eventually, a future mate. Don't make them so unreasonably high that you and no one can meet them, but, decide however many that are really core and important to what you believe and how you want to live. All of this will develop a confidence that will emanate from you, and people will see that and admire the whole "package" you present. You will be teaching others how to treat you because you will be respecting yourself. You will hold your head up high, but not your nose in the air looking down to everyone else. Also, be kind to everyone. That doesn't mean being a doormat!!! You don't Ever have to allow yourself to be mistreated by Anyone, EVER!!! You Can Do This!!! I have faith and believe in you!!! If you babysit, or have an allowance or some sort of spending money, save it up and go to the makeup counter and let them do a free makeup consultation with you (buy maybe one or two items you really like, if you want). Keep it simple and natural, with just a little extra pizzazz. Or, check into what it would cost to have professional "Glamour Shots" done. They will even do your makeup and provide you with outfits to use. Look them up to see if one is near you and call them to find out more. Another great way to feel feminine is to have a spa day where you get the works and a massage! All this just rewards the internal work that you can do for yourself. It also helps to give you a boost to start the internal work. Sometimes being able to see yourself on the outside the way others see you can be a huge confidence builder. Just remember, "Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes straight to the bone!" True beauty is truly a reflection of what and who you are on the inside!!! Showing love to others will help you to love yourself and thus, you will exude confidence, honesty, integrity, and a clarity of vision for your life that others will see. You will be so busy Living your life and growing into the Incredible young woman that is inside of you, that you will not have time to worry about being "feminine"!!! You will be that, and so much more!!!! I am so proud of you!!! You already have your "Ruby Slippers"; so "click them together 3 times" and go for it!!! All the best! Abicat

    pretty is relative and not important than personality. boys don't just see your physically but your personality too. being a feminine is not about make up, you just have to take care of your body and dress up like a normal girl, if you don't like to wear a dress, you can just wear a shirt with jeans.

    Well, I am the most non-girly person ever because I've got dark, short boy hair. But the thing is, I love feeling feminine! But only on the weekends. Not anywhere else. Weird.... Um, I feel pretty and feminine when I'm wearing a cute dress or a pretty-but-still-normal blouse. Oddly enough, I feel girly when I've got pants on too. I have nice girly jeans and I love them. I've also got girly-but-also-kick-*** shirts like one that looks like a piratess. It's so cool. In summary, look for short dresses, skirts, blouse-shirts, and even jeans. Stay away from shorts. I've never felt anything but remorse when I've put on shorts in the past.

    Looking feminine is really a state of mind. Dressing nicely without having all your parts hanging out is very classy and tells the world you have great confidence. Love what you do, and appreciate what others do as well. What is in your heart will show on your face.
