This is not a topic SheFinds would normally feature (as you know, we're pretty focused on fashion and beauty), but authors Tamsen Fadal and Matt Titus recently came out with a book, Why Hasn't He Proposed?: Go from the First Date to Setting the Date, that actually brings up a lot of relevant tips for those frustrated, well-dressed fashionistas out there wondering why he hasn't popped that question. We asked the authors to share with SheFinds some insider tips on becoming the girl that can stop men cold with her uncanny ability to apply makeup. (We wish it were that simple.) Nevertheless, below are some great product picks from Tamsen and Matt for making you look and feel your best.
Oh, and along with sharing their insight, we are giving away copies of the book to five lucky readers. Just write to us in the comments section and let us know which beauty product makes you feel the most confident and sexy before walking out the door.
First, it’s all in the eyes. Guys know that the eyes tell a lot if not everything about a woman. Make sure you are wearing concealer and make sure it's not caked on. Concealer will eliminate any dark under-eye circles and adds instant brightness to your face. Try Smashbox camera ready concealer ($18).
Next up hair. Hair color and highlights should complement your look, not overpower you. If you have any grays peeking out, get thee to a salon. And make sure to trim your hair regularly, there’s no excuse for looking shaggy. If you need a quick cover up, CoverMark ($22) is right on the mark.
Skin is in when it comes to attracting men. Invest in high quality makeup and keep it as natural as possible. And, make sure you use moisturizer and use sunscreen even in the winter. Trish McEvoy Protective Shield ($40) is light and can be worn alone or under your makeup.
Lips. Neutral lip gloss over your favorite color will give your pucker that kissabilty factor. They cost less than 15 dollars and can be invaluable when it comes to attracting a man. Urban Decay XXX Shine ($16) will leave your lips luscious.
White, beautiful teeth are a must. This means if you are a coffee drinker, a smoker, or just haven’t paid a lot of attention to your pearly whites, there is no better time than the present to whiten up your teeth. The good news, there’s no need to spend a ton on expensive bleaching treatments. Head to the drugstore for a teeth whitening kit that will be a fraction of the cost. Crest White Strips ($31) are inexpensive, but work like a charm.
