Don’t Be That Guy. Here Are 21 Beauty Tips That Will Make The Women Fall In Love

Beauty in men is all about making a favorable and memorable first impression. It’s also about your brand. You can craft your style to one that defines you at any age. Youth, after all, comes from within and it’s easier than you think. Here’s how you can make yourself stand out from other men in the crowd.

1. Your Clothes Set The Tone

The X-factor is setting. A suit at a backyard barbecue sets the wrong tone. The place is the canvas; you are the painting. Color makes a huge impression too. Think of a red background versus a dark blue one. It says something about your personality. Use it to your advantage.

2. Keep It Neat

No matter if you’re wearing an Armani jacquard shirt or a pair of Levis, make sure it’s clean. Nothing says lazy louder than stains from last night’s dinner. Look for clothes you can take care of quickly and easily. When it a little too worn, toss it out, or better yet, donate it.

3. Smooth Is the Way

The iron is your friend if you want others to think you care about how you look. If you don’t own one, opt for fabrics that don’t wrinkle like wool or cotton blends for trustworthy standbys.

4. Show Me Your Smile

While whether or not it takes fewer muscles to smile than frown, it feels better than scowling. You’ll make the people around you share those emotions too. Think of that one person you know can liven up a room just by entering it. Be that guy.

5. Care For Your Teeth

With so many products out there, there’s no excuse not to have a white set of tusks. It tells people you care about yourself. That speaks volumes to everyone you meet.

6. Make Your Lips Kissable

Winter takes a toll on our skin, but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with chapped lips. Make your lips softer with a balm that will keep them smooth. Don’t forget to get a product with an SPF of at least 15 to prevent sunburn.

7. Managing Your Mane

The scruffy look doesn’t always work for guys, especially when it comes to their hair. Take a comb through it every day to keep it looking healthier and less like you’ve just come out of a wind tunnel.

8. Wash It Regularly

By all means, keep it clean. Use products that will keep it soft and tame the tangles. It’s time to stop using that bar soap on your locks. It’s far too harsh and will dry out your hair.

9. Mind Your Shoulders

Dandruff happens. It’s often more of a problem in people with dry or sensitive skin. Nothing ranks as a bigger turnoff than greasy strands sticking to your face. But don’t overdo it. You can wash your hair less often in the winter when you’re not as likely to be sweating.

10. Keep It Trim

There is nothing worse than an unruly beard. A beard can be a good thing if it is properly maintained. However, when it is let alone to act as it wants, it can become a really mess.

11. And Always Keep It Clean

If you’re going to grow a beard, don’t make it easy for anyone to guess what you had for breakfast that morning. Like your face, it needs a rinse every day.

12 Nix the Unibrow

You can get away with the five o’clock shadow, but the unibrow has to go. It never works, just saying.

13. Take Care of It

You’ll find a plethora of beard oils, soaps, and balms along with brushes, combs, and trimmers, so there’s no excuse. Represent, man.

14. Keep Those Paws Soft

The strength of your grip says a lot about your confidence, but it also is a telltale sign about what you do and how you take care of yourself. The middle of the road is acceptable if you don’t want to give the impression you don’t lift a finger or you’re knee deep in it.

15. Clean Nails Rule

Along with your skin, your fingernails need some love too. Keep them trim and clean. Get acquainted with a nail file. It’s not just for the ladies.

16. Play Nice with Your Toes

The same advice applies to your toenails too. It’s probably one of the biggest buzzkills when the socks come off as the temperature is rising. Your bed companion will appreciate not waking up with claw marks down their legs too.

17. Don’t Forget Down There

Whether you decide to go bare or keep some around, treat it like your beard. Keep it trim. Enough said.

18. Get Your Zzzz

Sleep is so underrated when it comes to its impact on your appearance, health, and demeanor. It’s the time your body needs to heal from the challenges of the day and regroup. It also gives your body a chance to relax and let the immune, digestive, and circulatory systems do their stuff.

19. Manage Your Stress

Like the previous tip, this one is just as essential for its far-reaching effects. It’s just too hard on your body to stay “On” all the time. Chilling out in whatever way works for you is vital. And it is in no way selfish. Make it a number one priority every day.

20. Easy On The Cologne

You can make cologne a part of your brand, but don’t marinate in it. The ladies have an excellent tip to share on this front. If you can smell it, it’s too much.

21. Be Yourself

The most handsome man is the one who is comfortable in his skin. There’s only one you. Embrace what makes you, you.

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

Talk about a take back.

Yesterday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her 31st birthday, and to pay tribute to her, some of her biggest fans used the congresswoman’s signature looks and iconic words. The result was a mass of Tik Tok and Twitter makeup tutorials set to a mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s 2017 track “Humble.” AOC’s recent spack down of Representative Ted Yoho, who allegedly called the congresswoman a “crazy,” “disgusting” “f*cking b*tch” also made an appearance.

In an ode to AOC’s iconic takedown of Representative Ted Yoho this past July, users donned amazing lip colors and AOC’s finest words.

The AOC Birthday celebration meme saw users do their makeup and style their hair while mouthing a speech AOC gave this past July. Some of the videos featured facts about AOC and her accomplishments in office.

“I am here because I have to show my parents that I am their daughter and that they did not raise me to accept abuse from men,” the user’s mouth while the audio clip of AOC plays.

Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez even took part in the trend.

Earlier this summer, Rep. AOC admonished Rep. Ted Yoho on the House floor after he called her a “f*cking b*tch.”

According to reports, the confrontation occurred when the two members of Congress were passing each other on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Rep. Yoho allegedly confronted AOC and accused her of being “disgusting.” This occurred after she made comments that New York’s spike in crime had been caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Rep. AOC rebuked Yoho for his lack of apology at the time on the house floor soon after.

“It is cultural. It is a culture of lack of impunity, of accepting violence and violent language against women, an entire structure of power that supports that,” AOC said before adding “Mr. Yoho mentioned that he has a wife and two daughters – I am two years younger than Mr. Yoho’s youngest daughter. I am someone’s daughter, too. My father, thankfully, is not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter. My mother got to see Mr. Yoho’s disrespect.”
