Top Grooming Tips for Women
When you're out with your friends, look at the way they're dressed and make a note of what you like about them. You'll probably notice things like their fabulous vintage Sixties shift dress, bold geometric earrings, beautifully streaked urchin crop or elaborate eyeliner teamed with metallic eyeshadow for a cutting-edge look.
If however, you asked a man to comment on your mates' attire, he'd probably point out 'the one in the shapeless dress, her with the big triangles in her ears, that one with short boy's hair and her mate with the scary gold eyes.'
Men see women's appearances in a very different way from other women - while ladies judge how a certain look works on someone, men are more likely to notice certain staples they find attractive or repellent, and ignore the rest. Be aware of the things guys always find it hard to stomach, as well as what'll make you stand out in their eyes.
Top Turn-Off: Too Much Make-UpThis doesn't just mean foundation so thick you could chuck rocks at it. Men aren't keen on very obvious make-up such as bright red lips or bold eyeshadow - they prefer to be able to see what a girl's face looks like without a lot of paint on her skin. What you think looks colourful, futuristic or vampish, they'll see as obscuring your features.
Top Turn-On: Come-Hither EyesQuiz any group of men on their favourite (non-sex-related) parts of a woman and the top response is bound to be 'nice eyes'. Make the most of the 'windows on your soul' by adding eyeliner, highlighter and mascara to emphasise and open up the area, and go easy on blusher and lipstick so the immediate focus is on your eyes. That should give them plenty to gaze into longingly…
Top Turn-Off: Outsize JewelleryWhile you adore adorning yourself with bold plastic necklaces, dangling chandelier earrings or fake bling, don't think the fellas will love it as much as you do. Men get confused when you wear anything that doesn't appear to be in proportion with your body - they don't get oversized clothing, teased 'big' hair or six-inch platform heels either, because it doesn't fit the contours of your figure. And, of course, your figure's what they really want to be looking at.
