8. Loser lips
Think about how gross it is to see a man with food stuck in his mustache. Well, men think it’s equally icky to see crumbs embedded in sticky lip gloss. No man wants to put his lips on something that looks like thick, sparkly glue. Stay away from the lacquer-like glosses and opt instead for sheer, natural-looking color with a built-in moisturizer.
Another lipstick fail is dark liner. A liner in the same shade as your lipstick is fine; it keeps your lipstick from bleeding into your foundation. But when you wear a dark liner and your lipstick wears off, your mouth ends up looking like something from a kid’s coloring book. The purpose of lip liner isn’t to inspire the man sitting across the table to grab a crayon.
