It’s safe to assume that most men do not care much about makeup. After all, many surveys and studies show that men prefer women who wear natural-looking makeup. While this is a relief (thank you, men, for appreciating our natural beauty!), what does this mean when we get all dolled up for date night?
Some of the makeup trends that we find the most fun (purple eyeshadow and red lips, anyone?) men find the most off-putting. Dark lipstick feels more like a barrier between him and your lips, and too much foundation makes him think you’ve got something to hide.
There are some hot summer trends that both you and your man can agree look smokin’ hot, though. Here are the ones you should remember next time you hit the town with your hottie.
Coral is the perfect, most wearable take on the color from last year – Pantone’s Tangerine Tango. Wearing this shade on your lips would be super fun for cocktail hour with the ladies (just make sure you’re ready for tons of compliments all night). However, it might seem like a little much for a date with your guy. Wearing it on your nails is a cute and flirty way to show your personal style (and show off your trendiness!)
Shimmery lip gloss and dewy skin
Having a slight sheen on your lips and skin is a beauty trend that both sexes can agree on because, quite simply, it’s sexy! Dewy skin radiates health, which is something guys are biologically wired to notice. Lustrous lips just look so darn kissable. This would be perfect for a day date in the park or a fancy night out.
It’s not orange, it’s not hot pink, and it’s not lime green, but orchid purple eyeshadow is totally on-trend this season. Because it’s similar to more traditional eyeshadow shades, orchid is a color that guys won’t be totally freaked out by. Swipe this hue just on your eyelid, being careful not to extend beyond the crease of your eye. Your man will be impressed that you’re making such a fun, bold fashion statement.
Confidence is always in style, and it’s one thing men will always notice and admire. They also will always notice if it’s lacking. So no matter what you think your man likes, wear what makes YOU feel stunning. The rest will fall right into place.
