9 Beauty Tips For How To Be Pretty And Look More Attractive

By YourTangoYourTango

Many beautiful women invest a lot of time and effort into figuring out the best beauty tips for how to be pretty and more attractive.

And while women are beautiful by nature, many gorgeous women unknowingly commit makeup and skincare faux pas that actually detract from their good looks and natural beauty, rather than enhance it.

So in your quest for how to be even more beautiful than you already are, make sure you're following the best beauty tips possible that elevate your overall attractiveness — instead of hindering it.

Here are 9 common makeup and beauty mistakes beautiful women make that cause them to look less attractive than they really are.

1. Not using the right cleanser


The skincare products you use needs to be suited to your skin and your particular needs. If you know that your skin is sensitive, consider using a face cleanser for acne-prone skin that may help you to deal with any imperfections appearing due to sensitivity.

Another thing to consider is how you exfoliate. While it is recommended to do it regularly to get rid of dead cells and make the skin more vibrant, you should make sure to be gentle. If you are too aggressive during exfoliating, it may cause dryness, oil breakout, redness, or other problems.

The same applies when you exfoliate too often. It is more than enough to exfoliate once or twice on a weekly basis.

2. Misusing self-tanner


In your efforts for how to look hot, you might think self-tanner is the way to go. But this is a tricky one since self-tanning products are difficult to use evenly. More often than not, you notice that you missed a spot or an area and there is an obvious difference from the rest of your body.

In order to get an even layer, you should always exfoliate before putting self-tanner on and never apply it on your wet skin. Always wash your hands to avoid them becoming disproportionately tan compared to the rest of your body, too.

3. Using tanning oils


You might not be happy with how your skin looks; it seems pale and overall unattractive. If you are looking for ways to brighten dull skin so you can look more attractive, tanning oils might not be the right way to go. In most cases, they fail to provide the right protection from the sun, especially if you're spending an entire day out of the shade.

Not only you will end up with being burnt, but there are long-term effects that can be even more troubling, such as skin cancer or premature aging.

4. Having uneven nails


There are different styles and preferences when it comes to nails these days and that is something we should all accept. However, one thing has not changed: Whether you prefer long or short nails, bare or polished, they need to be even.

In fact, there are not many things that can look as unattractive and distasteful on a woman than uneven nails.

5. Leaving on ruined nail polish


Beautiful women have beautiful, healthy nails. However, not all nail polishes are of the same quality, and some of them might not even last for an entire day. If you find that your nail polish peels off during the day, make sure to take it off or replace it as soon as you get the chance.

Oh, and peeling it off yourself is absolutely unacceptable. It may affect your nail's health and quality!

6. Not providing proper care for your neck


Aging is natural, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn't try to combat its visible signs as long as possible. There are many skin care products that claim to have anti-aging effects that will revitalize your skin and bring its youthfulness back. But did you know that most facial products can and should be applied to the neck area, too?

Check the label and choose the products that can be applied to both décolletage and neck, as those are also quite prone to aging signs.

7. Putting lipstick on chapped lips


It might be that it gets windy outside or you have a biting habit, but whatever the reason, you are bound to have problems with dry or flaky lips occasionally. In those cases, you should avoid putting lipstick on as it will not have the effect you are looking for and it will not boost your appearance.

Instead, try to get rid of dead skin cells with a toothbrush (be gentle) and utilize a moisturizing balm. Once you get rid of dryness, you can return to making your lips beautiful with lipstick.

8. Applying too much perfume


Everyone loves attractive woman with a fresh and attractive scent, but you need to know where the limit is when applying perfume. There is no need to leave behind your scent minutes after you leave the room. Too much perfume may not only have the counter-effect to what you want to achieve but can even induce headaches to other people.

When in doubt, use moderation.

9. Putting your ponytail in the exact same spot


Some women love wearing a ponytail and that's their favorite hairstyle for all occasions. While there is nothing wrong with that, you should make sure not to always tie it in the exact same position. A ponytail leads to plenty of hair tension and if you're wearing it every day, you can weaken the quality and health of your follicles.

Each woman does her best to look as beautiful as possible, which is why it's important to avoid making these mistakes in your beauty routine. With an insight into the most common errors that occur, you will now know what you should do differently to optimize your already natural beauty!
