You know those mornings when you're running late, and on top of that, your messy bun ends up being a little too messy?
Every woman knows the pain of having a bad hair day, and those days always seem to come at the worst possible moment. Like the moment when your date is on his way up to your doorstep and you just sneezed right after applying mascara, and now the dark circles under your eyes just got enhanced by black goo smeared all over your cheeks.
Let's face it, sometimes your efforts to look attractive can backfire, and there is not much your makeup can do to hide the dark circles you woke up with after staying up all night finishing your Netflix binge.
Well, there is some good news for you on days like this. There are some amazingly easy ways to enhance your look that you can do in the knick of time so you won't have to look like a hot mess in front of your sweetheart (at least not yet).
Here are 8 ways to look instantly more attractive:
You have most likely heard red lipstick can empower your look if worn correctly, but did you know that any red article of clothing does the same thing? A study at the University of Rochester found that men are unconsciously more attracted to women who wear any shade of red. Obviously the color of romance knows what it's doing.
The phrase, "falling head over heels in love" is definitely on to something. According to this study, men are more likely to be attracted to a woman wearing heels than to a woman who is not. High heels are universally flattering and can enhance any look you're going for, whether it's casual skinny jeans or a springy, swing dress. What many women don't know is that high heels elongate their bodies and make them look thinner. With that in mind, why not mesmerize every guy you pass with a good pair of stilettos? That way they won't even notice your messy, messy bun.
3. Pucker up
Lipstick is a lifesaver. When you put any color on your lips, from a pale pink to a fiery red, you are diverting everyone's attention to your lips instead of that hole in your shirt you just found. Lipstick can be an instant game-changer when it comes to looking attractive.
4. All about the brows
The new eyebrow craze is definitely trending for a reason. Eyebrows frame your face and add dimension to your look, so taking the time to fill, shape and groom your eyebrows properly can definitely add some bonus points to your appearance. Find out how to properly fill in your eyebrows here.
How you treat others definitely reflects how you feel about yourself and who you are. Nothing is more attractive than showing genuine kindness and care for the well-being of other people. If you truly want to be attractive, don't be afraid to show your aptitude for kindness.
6. Little black dress
No wardrobe is truly complete without an iconic little black dress. Black is a universally mysterious, empowering and flattering color. This study shows that black is actually the best color to wear on a first date and therefore, a little black dress can enhance your look and divert everyone's attention to how great you look and away from your smeared mascara.
7. Perfect your posture
Slouching may seem comfortable but taking the time to notice and correct your posture will benefit your body in the long run. The way you carry yourself when you walk and sit can really reflect how you feel about yourself. Don't be afraid to put your shoulders back and strut your stuff. Being aware of your posture can enhance your confidence, and others will notice too.
If you want to attract others to you like a magnet, it takes more than just nice eyebrows and a little black dress, it is about how you see yourself. Confidence comes from not sweating about the small stuff and most of all, it comes from the heart. Be you, and be confident in who you are as a person. Nothing feels better than showing off your individuality through your wardrobe, and websites like Jane.com where you can find boutique deals up to 70% off can help you feel attractive and confident in your style.
