Are You Attracting or Detracting?

 

Learning how to accentuate and complement your natural beauty can make a world of difference in your appearance. 

One of the first things you must know is what are the right colors that complement your skin tones, your hair, and your eyes.   Makeup (ie. eye shadow, lipstick, and blush) comes in both Cool and Warm shades, so you will need to determine which is best for your type (see related articles below).   This key element is crucial in defining whither you will be attracting or detracting from your natural beauty. 

Let’s look at some common mistakes women make in applying makeup, and how to avoid them:

Eye Shadow:

Shimmery iridescent eye shadows may look good on teens, but for women that are starting to age those shiny eye shadows actually emphasize lines, and wrinkles so it is best to avoid them and stick with a matte finish that will soften your look.

For those of you with blue or green eyes it is best to stay away from eye shadows that too closely match the color of your eyes.  As they will actually detract from your own eye color.  Instead look closely at the different  flecks of color in your eyes and choose one of those shades to highlight and complement your baby blues.

Applying too much color under the eye emphasizes puffy eyes and dark circles.  It also fights with the color of the eye.  Instead use a thin line of brown, taupe or black and smudge it for a smokey look.

Concealer:

When covering dark under eye circles don’t use too light a shade of concealer or it will produce the “raccoon eye effect” which makes dark circles look worse.  Concealer should be half a shade lighter than your skin, a light color foundation can also be used.  It is best to apply with a wedged sponge, cotton swab or soft brush, never use your index finger as it puts too much pressure on the delicate area.

Blush:

Blush should not be applied on the upper side of the cheekbones, as it will interfere with the eye area making the skin under the eye look puffy.   Blush should be used to contour and highlight using two shades to achieve this look.  The darker shade should be used on the hollow of the cheek (under the cheekbones) applied in an upward motion from the hollow to the temple.  Then the lighter shade applied to the apple of the cheek.   The purpose is to add slight color and dimension to your face, apply it lightly so that it looks natural, too much will detract.

Perfume:

Don’t spray perfume directly on your clothing, the oils and alcohol will damage your garments and the scent never smells as good on your clothing as on you.

Be careful not to apply too much fragrance, you want people to notice you, not your perfume!  When it is overpowering it can be offensive.

The best  rule of thumb in appying makeup is that “less is more”.

The big key is that you don’t want to emphasize your makeup, you just want to diminish any imperfections and enhance your best features to be the most attractive natural beauty you can be.

The Truth About What Men Find Attractive

Have you ever asked yourself, What do most Men consider Attractive in Women?

You could ask your girlfriend what she thinks, but wouldn’t it make more sense to ask a man?  Most women seem to think that all a man is attracted to is Big Breasts or an Hour Glass figure, like a Barbie Doll.

Those of you (myself included) that grew up with Barbies, didn’t you think that you were supposed to develop into having that same type of figure?  Like that was the norm!

But if you take the measurements of Barbie, she would be over 7 feet tall, weigh around 125 pounds, and have a shape of 32-20-42.  How obsurd to think a woman could attain or maintain a figure like that !   You would be surprised though how many women actually try by using plastic surgery, breast implants and liposuction.

In addition, Barbie has a very long neck. In fact, her neck is nearly twice the size of the average woman.  And Barbie’s feet are only half the size of a normal woman’s (like that of the ancient Chinese women that had their feet bound).

Are men really attracted to Barbie Doll figures?

Let’s find out The Truth about what Men think is Attractive, shall we?

Here are some recent findings concerning what men find attractive in women,  that may surprise you.

1.  Smile- is like a magnet that can draw his attention and keep it

2.  Feminine and delicate Nature –delicate, soft, kind hearted and caring

3.  A woman’s voice- a highly feminine and soft voice

4.  Sense of humor-a good sense of humor, understands and laughs at jokes

5.  Un-materialistic attitude-down to earth, not high maintenance

6.  Strong personality –not weak minded, can make sound decisions

7.  The eyes –the the window to the soul, can speak a thousand words

8.  The Woman’s Hair- most like moderately long feminine style hair

10. Comfortable and Confident-one who supports him, and the one with whom he feels relaxed and open

Did you notice that physical appearance is # 9,  not # 1!

What do men think of Breast Implants?  Is size important ?

The fact of the matter is, though men do love to look at a woman with implants and would also not mind sleeping with her, they will certainly not like having a woman like this as a life time partner. In addition to that, most men love natural breasts over artificial ones. So even if the implants make the chest look bigger and hotter they are as a matter of fact, artificial. Artificial breasts can actually be a major turn-off to most men. This is because men start feeling that their woman partner is not reacting to their touches and squeezes (which is obviously the case when a woman has implants they do tend to reduce the sensitivity of the breasts).

If you work on these 10 things you’ll be surprised at how much more attractive you’ll be to your husband, or boyfriend.  And you will be less worried about looking like Barbie.

But don’t forget the importance of eating right and getting exercise to stay in the best health. You want to be your best inside and out!

Remember # 1 Keep on Smiling!  When you have confidence and are comfortable with yourself it will show in your smile.
