Do High Contrast Faces Look More Feminine?

When you look at the two images above, what sexes do you see? To most of us, the face on the left looks female and the right looks male — when in reality, they're the exact same face with varying degree of contrast. Buzzfeed explains, "Women tend to have a greater contrast between their lips and eyes compared to the skin of the face." As a result, increasing the contrast in the photo on the right will make the picture look more feminine. No wonder drag queens spend so much time highlighting and shading!
