25 Feb How to appear more physically attractive to men
When it comes to dating, obviously it’s not all about looks – we’ve written a whole other post on the biggest turn ons for men. But there’s no doubt that physical attraction is a factor when dating the opposite sex. It’s important to be authentic, to be yourself and to keep your own sense of style, but there are also ways that you can enhance your feminine beauty in order to appear more physically attractive to men.
Here are some ways you can achieve this:
Less is more when it comes to makeup
There are some guys out there who prefer the “The Only Way is Essex” look – fake tan, hair extensions, drawn on eyebrows and trout pout lips – but most men prefer the more au naturel look. Less is definitely more when it comes to makeup and looks a lot more classy.
Recently I discovered Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Tinted Moisturiser and this is so much better than foundation. It is incredibly subtle and evens out your skin tone, but it looks like you’re wearing nothing at all. I used to always find that my foundation looked a bit caked on and didn’t completely match my skin tone, but with this tinted moisturiser it’s so light you wouldn’t notice it’s there. I also discovered the Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Eye Stick which is much more subtle than harsh, black eyeliner.
Wear your hair down, or half up half down
There’s something a lot more feminine about flowing hair. If you have mid-length or long hair, then leave it down and relaxed for a date. Definitely don’t overdo it with the hair straighteners. Instead, blow your hair naturally with beach-tousled waves. Wearing your hair half-up is also quite attractive – it sort of reminds men of that medieval “Maid Marian” type look.
Keep your hair colour natural
It’s important to be who you are and to express yourself, so if you want to dye your hair then do it. But as with makeup, less is usually more. Dyeing your hair can have bad effects on the condition and really dry it out. Adding some subtle highlights to your original hair colour is a great way to look more youthful without overdoing it.
Stand up straight
Posture makes you appear more confident and confidence is definitely attractive. Since many of us work on computers nowadays it’s easy to get into bad habits of slouching over a computer, but by standing up straight with your shoulders back you instantly feel taller and more confident. A friend of mine used to walk around with a book on her head for a few minutes each day just to practice keeping her posture.
Get your teeth fixed
We all notice teeth. If you have the spare cash and you’re like straighter teeth, I highly recommend getting clear braces. I recently got them and now have super straight teeth, which makes me feel much more confident and happy when I look in the mirror. The braces are almost unnoticeable and the great thing is, you can take them out when you have an event to go to or you’re heading out for dinner. “Tele dentistry” is all the rage, so if you don’t want to pay thousands of dollars for a dentist, then definitely give Smile Direct Club a try.
Smiling is always attractive, as is a positive mindset. I don’t think I need to say any more on that one.
Embrace your femininity with clothing
Men love femininity. You can easily embrace it by wearing subtle necklines and showing off your best assets. For example, you could wear a pair of jeans that show off your cute bum, or a V-neck sweater that enhances your cleavage. It doesn’t need to be anything too revealing, just something that leaves him wanting more. According to scientific studies, apparently wearing red makes you more attractive, so perhaps head out and buy a red dress for your wardrobe! Other items men love: yoga pants, bodycon dresses, high heels and off-the-shoulder tops. Oh and there’s nothing sexier than a woman wearing his shirt in the morning (or so the movies tell me).
Wear the right perfume
My guy friends often tell me that there are certain fragrances women always wear that really turn them off. Try to pick a perfume that really compliments your natural body scent. If you’re in doubt, ask your friends if they like the smell of your perfume and get some feedback.
