    CAKED-ON BASE
    Painting layers of foundation, tinted moisturizer, concealer, and powder on your face will rub off on your collar…and his. Stick with a lightweight foundation, remove any obvious makeup with a damp sponge, and dab concealer just over blemishes or redness.

    A SLOPPY SHAVE
    Nothing says “I’ve given up” as succinctly as leg stubble. Shave at night for the most precise finish (your legs swell as you sleep, so you’ll miss hairs if you shave in the morning) and use a new blade. Doing so will also help you avoid those annoying red razor bumps.

    STICKY LIP GLOSS
    There are lip glosses that moisturize with a subtle sheen, and there are those that are so sticky they could glue together broken glass.

    STIFF HAIR
    No man is going to be able to run his fingers through your hair if it’s knotted in a bun, pulled into a twist, or otherwise high-maintenance-looking. Go for a more approachable hairstyle, like easy waves, half up, or a pretty ponytail.

    SMOKY-EYE OVERLOAD
    It starts off innocently enough: It’s just you, an eye-shadow palette, and a mirror. But things can get ugly fast when heavy, dark shadows are piled on top of each other. Create a subtle, sexy smoky eye by slightly smudging black eyeliner along the rims of your eyes.
