Amusing fact: 100% of men prefer women wearing red lipstick
Catwalks, streets, clubs, celebrities – an ongoing rivalry between the two styles seems to be everywhere. Dark gothic beauty or explicit sex appeal? We, women, tend to express our inner state via clothes, hairstyle, makeup and even, colour of our nails. Mystery, melancholy, complexity and inner conflict – that’s what usually smoky look conveys. While classic red lips appearance is often seen as open, powerful, passionate and slightly audacious.
Girls love wearing enigmatic smoky makeup when out or even as a casual look. I am a big fan too! However, what a surprise - guys absolutely hate it... The first warning sign occurred when my male friend got scared of me wearing a cat eye makeup (see the photo). Even, though, it was done in a nicest way possible.
Such reaction on my perfectly executed cat eyes raised a big question about what guys consider as beautiful. So I brought 2 photographs to work to ask male colleagues about their fav look on a girl. To complete the research, I also inquired my male friends about the same looks.
Here are the results of my research:
- The red lips look was voted 100% as a favourite. Even the most artistic individuals has not picked the smoky look
- “Nothing can be worst than those kind of black eyes on girls. Why???”, “Is she a drug addict?”, “Get her to wash it off and then I’ll tell if she is ok” were some of the comments regarding the photo of a beautiful “smoky” girl
- “I would not mind to know more about her”, “That is the woman!”, or just an extensive stare at the photo (you know what does this means for a guy, right?) were comments on a photo of a red-lipped bombshell.
The end of the story, girls! Make your own conclusions. However, if you are dreaming about meeting your prince, be careful not to scare him away with a mysterious look of your beautiful smoky eyes. Personally, I am holding back on this look until next rock concert.
