Most men don’t like women who wear a lot of make-up but if you’re a beauty junkie anyway we have a few tricks up our sleeves to get the right attention! Some men may barely notice your make-up, others have well-formed opinions. Most women would agree that some kind of make-up boosts their self-confidence. Try some of our all-time classic men-approved make-up looks to find out what he likes best.
This one was a no-brainer, ladies. Instantly noticeable for its dark colours, most men think a woman sporting a smokey-eye is, well, badass. Sonakshi’s shimmer, the smokey eye is a great take on rocker chic meets Hollywood glam.
If your man is more the type to fall for the-girl-next-door, then take this cute and easy girly look for a spin with flesh tones, light pinks and pretty pastels. Think about it, who doesn’t like Alia, right?
Recreate this look using the Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in the shade Ravishing Rose (Rs 575).
Research (and good sense) have proven that no man can't NOT notice red lips. Add to that a bold smokey eye to further up your power dressing just like Deepika Padukone. Men love women with an edge and there’s no reason for you NOT to be fierce and fearless.
For all you ladies with green eyes like Kareena, smoked out eyeliner in greys and browns will have him swooning every time you blink. A brown liner is less harsh, keeps all the attention on your gorgeous eyes and gives you a polished look.
Recreate Kareena’s look using the Nicka K 24Hr Waterproof Eye Liner in the shade Brown (Rs 475). It comes with a smudger, so you needn’t worry about buying a separate tool. Go all-in and brush on some L'Oreal Paris Bronzer (Rs 850) along your cheekbones to give your face some added definition.
If you’re trying to impress a boy who prefers a woman who doesn’t wear make-up, a bold brow is all you need. Stencil your eyebrows according to the natural shape of your eyes at the salon. All you need to do is line and fill in your brows with an eyebrow pencil. Use a highlighter on your brow bone like Sonakshi for an instant lift!
Recreate Sonakshi’s stunningly simple look using the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in the shade Black Ink (Rs 1,450) and The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in the shade Ash Brown (Rs 1,194)
lf you’re not into make-up and (it’s perfectly OK, by the way), bare it all by going au naturale! Take better care of your skin so you can be all about that glow.
You can rock Katrina’s basic bae look with well-hydrated skin topped with a little bit of highlighter. Use The Body Shop’s Glow Boosting Moisturizer (Rs 2,295) mixed with a little bit of M.A.C Strobe cream (Rs 2,700) for luminous skin like Katrina.
Always remember ladies, confidence is the key to looking sexy. You do you!
