Okay, I know men say less is more about makeup, which can be true in some cases, like when you see those girls walk by with their makeup caked on over an inch thick. Realistically, most of the time, ladies want to accentuate their assets to help those “blind” hopeless guys notice what we are proud of. There is definitely a power that makeup can change a good day to a better day and even grab the attention that might draw that guy’s eye to you. Here are three reasons why wearing makeup can be empowering to a woman:
For Boosting Confidence
When I say “extra risks,” I mean it might make you feel hotter, stimulating, and more desirable. When you are looking good, you know it, and that makes you fearless, so you can smile at that guy walking pass you without a doubt. If you are married, it can also boost your confidence around your lover. When you are feeling better and more confident with yourself, your confidence radiates SEXINESS, and your man will notice – guaranteed! Lastly, in the workplace, your confidence will make you stand out from the crowd.
Change Makeup Routine
So we all are guilty of getting into our routine – wake up through some makeup on so we look presentable and head out the door to living our busy lives. Try this, spend a little extra time on your favorite part of your face in the morning…your eyes, cheeks, lips, skin… whether it’s a lighter or darker shade than you usually use on your eyes or an extra coat of mascara. Or even try a new lip color, blush or even apply a little extra bronzer onto your cheekbones. Adding just a little variety can make some significant differences and go a long way. As we get older, our skin changes, so trying something new can be good because you might pull yourself out of an old phase into a modern one! Find a look at someone that you like that is around your age and try to mimic it. I say get out of your same old routine and give it a try!
A Shiny Look
By no means am I saying that you need makeup to be shiny, smiley or happy, but if you add some shine to your look, you can feel happier or brighter? On some days when I don’t want to wear too much makeup, I will wear my tinted moisturizer and add some shimmering powder and some bronzer, a little mascara and finish with some light lip gloss. With a lighter look, it can make you feel and look more radiant and less stressed. When you see bright and radiant people, you perceive them as light, fresh and stress-free. My point is to imagine two women both shopping with three kids, each running around. One’s hair all tangled dark circles under her eyes with makeup on but not so flattering. The other woman in lighter clothes whites, light jeans with shimmer light and appropriate makeup. Both in the same scenario, the second woman will be perceived as more stress-free.
In many cases, how you look can change how you feel dramatically. So think about it, try and make yourself look how you want to feel. If you’re going to be mysterious, add some mystery to your look.
