I always wondered what men thought about all the effort we put in making ourselves look glamorous. So I did a bit of digging. I asked a few men on what they thought of some of the beauty/makeup products we used and here are the products men love to hate.

 

Lip gloss

In an attempt to make our lips look nice and healthy, we apply lip balm. Sometimes we want to make them more presentable and give our lips a bit of a shine by applying lip gloss.

Although lip gloss looks very appealing to us women, men don’t like them very much. They find lip gloss very sticky and hate how it tastes as well, when they go for a kiss.

 

Dark lipstick

Dark lipsticks are in vogue and it has become very common to see women with blue, deep purple and even black lipstick. Although we find dark lipstick appealing and stylish, many men don’t understand the idea behind such unnatural colours. Unfortunately for us ladies, men have been heard to make fun of our dark coloured lipsticks.

 

Hair extensions

Sometimes we need a little help when it comes to having good-looking hair. Due to hair damage, weak hair and the desire to have long hair, some of us go for hair extensions for the needed hair boost.

When you choose the right shade and have it fixed properly, hair extensions can look very appealing. However, this is another one the guys don’t seem to like much. When they run their hands through your hair and find their fingers get stuck in the parts where you attached the hair extensions it can be a big turn off for them.

 

Fake eyelashes

Fake eyelashes are another one on the list of beauty products men hate. We love and admire long beautiful eyelashes as they make one’s eyes look more alluring. And when we apply mascara, they make the eyes more distinct and gorgeous.  That is why women rush to fix fake eyelashes to get that desired look, if the natural eyelashes do not do the work. But men claim to hate it.

 

Glittery Eye shadow

You know the eye-catching glittery eye shadow we apply on those really fun days when we feel like trying something a little different? Glittery eye shadow adds glam to your outfit and makes you look amazing. However, some men claim to hate this particular type of makeup.

 

Fake nails

When we are feel like having a good pamper session, we usually go for a manicure and a pedicure. Fixing fake nails also adds to the whole glam. I used to be a huge lover of fake nails. I used to have them done regularly before I had my twins. But since I became a mother, I can’t be bothered to get the nails done.

Beautifully painted nails always look wonderful, but some men claim to have an issue with the fake nails.

 

According to my research, these are the beauty products men hate. What do you think of them? Did any surprise you?

How to Make your Eyes POP

Eyes are the window to the soul. They say it, we know it. Our eyes give us away when we are tired, sleep deprived, happy or sad. It is all in the eyes. Our eyes also play a major role when it comes to makeup. So how can you make your eyes pop? Here are a 5 beauty tricks you may find useful –

Get some sleep or some ice

We all need our beauty sleep. I know I need about 7/8 hours sleep to feel human, but some nights I just can’t get the sleep I need, and my eyes start to sting in the morning. On those frustrating mornings, I get a bag of ice wrapped in a flannel for some relieve. This can also help with puffy swollen eyes; the ice helps to take the swelling down.

 

Eyelash extensions

Using eyelash extensions is an easy way to make your eyes pop instantly. They are quick and easy to use, and there are loads of options now in the market. You can go for a natural-looking eyelash enhancement for a natural look. If you are after full-on hollywood glamour, you will find full-on false eyelashes to go with the look.

 

Make your eyes pop with a concealer

Concealers are great for making our eyes appear brighter, getting rid of dark circles, and hiding blemishes. To make your eyes pop using a concealer,  go for a shade lighter than your skin tone.

 

Use a Mascara

Mascaras are great for opening up the eyes and making them pop. I have quite a few mascaras in my makeup bag, and they all come in handy in different ways.

 

Get the eyebrows done

I like to have my eyebrows threaded or waxed every month. I prefer threading as it is easier on the skin and better. Threaded eyebrows also last longer than waxed brows, which is good value for money. Well shaped eyebrows is a good place to start when it comes to eye make up.
