Types of Make-Up Men Hate

altAlmost all women have a penchant for wearing make-up.

While it may compliment their looks and even make them feel good about themselves, some varieties of make-up that are known to exist are a sure shot turn off for men. In most cases, women seek the advice of their peers of the same sex and end up making blunders with their faces. While it is perfectly acceptable to tone up your face a bit to attract the opposite sex, it is not the best option to treat your face like a painting canvas. We look at some of the biggest make-up mistakes made by women.

1. Heaps of Foundation

‘The more, the better’ certainly does not applies to foundations, powders and concealers. Make-up that is too conspicuous and blatantly caked upon the face tops the list of make-up that men hate. The caked up look not only looks artificial and bland, but also reflects an insecure personality.

2. Uneven Make-Up

No matter how good you are in toning up your face with clever tricks and a plethora of creams etc., it all counts for naught if you don’t even it out with your neck. The whole effort that is invested becomes apparent and only inspires sordid humour and pity.

3. Rosy Cheeks

They might have looked fabulous and chic in the 1960’s or 70’s but the world has moved on and today rosy cheeks just look childish and immature. However, women trying to go futuristic with neons and other striking shades seem no different either.

4. Skinny Eyebrows and Overdone Eyelashes

Over plucked eyebrows is something that looks plain weird and unnatural. Overdone or spidery eyelashes are also not a hit with men and may even scare the bejesus out of some.

5. Overt Eye-Shadow

Many women copy those overt and vivid tones they see on actresses to their eyes without much thought. An eye-shadow colour that doesn’t really go with the skin tone mars the beauty of the most striking feature women have.

6. Botched Lipstick

It is incomprehensible what women are actually trying to achieve when they put on a flaming bright red lipstick on their lips. Surely they get all the attention in the room, but to no apparent avail.

7. The Prostitute Look

When you wear a combination of nearly all the things listed above you get the famous ‘Prostitute Look’. But it is not really something men hate but rather find profoundly funny.

The whole purpose of make-up is nullified if it is too apparent. The art of make-up is keeping it subtle and not letting it be known that it is even there. Make-up that accentuates the features of the face and compliments the skin tone is generally appealing to men. However, going natural is also a look that is adored by many men.

    When my sister and I were little, our dad would announce his arrival every evening by whistling outside the window. It was a ritual; we would hear his Rajdoot motorcycle rumble to a stop, and then the familiar whistle would follow. My sister and would leave everything we were doing and rush out to greet him.
