A Tool for Learning Makeup

In the post I made called How to Avoid Looking Fake, I pointed out that a girl needs to understand what kinds and tones of makeup work with her face and complexion in order to avoid the "caked on" makeup look, which men find unattractive. A reader recently recommended a website called TAAZ.com that actually allows users to apply virtual makeup to a photo of themselves in order to get an idea of what will look good. You can also try different hairstyles. In fact, the website is very similar to the one I recommended in the post How to Improve Your Hair (www.thehairstyler.com), but with a focus on makeup rather than hair - and the added benefit of being able to do both.

Here is the link to the website: www.taaz.com

As with www.thehairstyler.com, the visualization tools aren't perfect, but as you can see in the examples below, you can definitely get general ideas about how various colors work (or don't work) with your personal look. Whether you are just learning how to optimize your look, or want to revisit it, this website can be an invaluable tool. (And don't be so sure that you already know everything about your own makeup - self-perception is remarkably inaccurate at times.)

  3. I haven't wanted to get married for awhile and often refused to control myself, but realize that while for some guys it might be OK to see value in an "easy" to get girl, for the most it's the conquest that's necessary (wherher they'll admit to it or not). You have to give a guy something to crave. Ironically I've had guys craving exclusive relationship from ME when all I wanted was sex.. but that's exactly the point - I held something they couldn't have. Not the best strategy to entice a man for marriage though, as you never know what his needs are and whether he'll think you are that much of a catch after he sleeps with you... If you don't know much about each other prior to the date and he doesn't know your value, it's stupid to expect he would be interested in anything lasting just because you are good in the sack.. And neither should you be interested in anything at all with a man you know nothing about... I'm constantly amazed at girls who idealize men right away and want to please them to get a ring out of it... If I sleep with a guy fairly soon I am damn sure about where I Am going with it... And it's certainly not to "put out" anything for him or give anyone anything I owe.
