Beauty Tips from a Man: What He Notices (and Doesn't!)
Turns out he does care about your makeup, shaving habits and how often you exfoliate -- but not in the way you'd imagine
Alright, now that the elephant in the (virtual) room has been spotted and smacked with a handy warning label, let's get on with the beauty tips, shall we?
Skip to see beauty tips from a man and what he really thinks about your beauty.
The truth is, no matter how much of a feminist or "you should love me for me"-type of woman you are, you still probably care what your heart's desire thinks about your looks. It's natural to want to look attractive for your mate. It's also natural to want to know if he actually even notices some of the beauty practices you spend cumulative hours on. Like, does he appreciate the fact that you spent an extra half-hour in the shower exfoliating and shaving every last inch of your body, not to mention racked up the water bill? This got us thinking, when it comes to beauty tips and tricks, what is worth spending precious time on in preparation for a big date and what isn't?
We decided to investigate by asking readers what they do beauty-wise to get ready for a romantic night with a man. We mostly heard things like whiten teeth, fake tan, wax, apply extra sexy makeup and the like -- with the occasional "wrap your entire body in a big red ribbon with a big bow where it counts"-advice. We then took those practices to Ky Henderson, Editor-in-Chief of ModernMan.com and dating columnist, to tell us if all these beauty tweaks actually get noticed. Here he drolly offers some beauty tips for your next big night out.
