And from a lot of guys I've asked, eyebrows are only significant if they look like a unibrow, or are super sparse. And I hate putting stuff on my eyes, cause my eyelashes are already long enough, and mascara and fake lashes, even when I remove them properly, make my eyelashes fall out easily. And makeup makes my skin break out...I'd rather just keep eating healthy and going to the gym than damage my skin pretending to look better. I appreciate the advice, though.
No problem although some food for thought
You're 17? You are going to have to accept what you look like and unfortunately what comes with it or realize the shallowness of people and level up to take advantage of that.
Eyebrows are super important. They frame the face. Someone can look super attractive or way ugly with just eyebrows alone. People don't realize that
Your eyelashes may be long in person but are not thick enough/dark enough to capitalize on its feminine sexy factor. When people are going on about how hot someone looks, second to their bone structure, their eyes and its allure is what gives that ooph. Eyes (brows, shape, lashes) on a woman is a big part of make or break.
I agree you need to take excellent care of your skin. Especially being black where hyperpigmentation will take away from your looks. But makeup gives polish. Not all makeup will make you break out, you have to shop around and learn about the science of skin care.
Its not a lie unless you think men think your rolled out of bed with golden bronzed lids. Polish tells people that look at you that you give a fuck about your appearance. Lying about your appearance is a different and tiresome undertaking
One thing that I learned because I used to be like you is you don't get extra credit in life for not grooming yourself to the cliched best. You never have to do it of course. I am only mentioning this because of the kind of forum we are posting on.
Just realize that even brilliant men who logically know better and know that makeup is just art that makes women look better than they are without it are still just men and they respond to attractiveness. I love intelligent and accomplished men and I learn a lot from them. They understand that image is power and will groom themselves to be their best no matter what age they become. Having an attractive woman on his arm is also power. Not just for him but for all men. So you being young and being cute has a lot of power in this superficial sense.
Anyhow there is a reason why so many girls who don't even need to go down this route. Its bs but its what most guys respond to.
I think its great that you are working on your physical foundation. But you posted about your attractiveness on here and you see what the comments are. If you ever feel like hearing something different, even with the silent actions of others around you (it is mindboggling how different people treat you when they find you attractive!), my suggestions will give you points overnight. Take it or leave it but all true.
