So I’ve been reading through lots of Reddit posts on r/dating and r/dating_advice to look for some patterns. One that keeps popping up is guys think the only way for them to be more attractive is by working out. Or making more money. Other then that it’s all genetics and they have absolutely no control.
As a woman I’m bombarded with ads of products that will make me more attractive. Advertising tells me there’s billions of ways for me to improve my beauty. I guess men haven’t had that same message their entire lives. So here you go men (all humans really), here’s all the secrets to being more attractive.
Be More Attractive Physically
First I want to clarify something. Women are not as obsessed with looks as men are. We really and truly are looking at more than your face, body, and bank account. We see the whole picture. You do not have to have a 6 pack or a perfect beach body to be successful on a dating app or dating online.
In fact, there are some women that are turned OFF by chiseled bodies because they feel intimidated or like they would be judged. I don’t want to date a huge body builder because if a man is eating and working out all day, how is he going to give me as much attention as I need??
Want to look more attractive physically? Try these:
Update your hair cut
Change your facial hair
Improve your skin – wash it every morning and night with a gentle cleanser. I like the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser. Use sunscreenon your face every day. Use a retinol at night. Start slow with 1-2 times a week and work up to nightly. Just like most good things in life, consistency is important. If you have lots of acne scars or acne start getting facials regularly.
Improve your smile – Brush and floss your teeth regularly. Use Crest Whitestrips to whiten your teeth (this is my best tip for looking more attractive immediately, looking better in photos, and looking younger). Straighten your teeth with braces or Invisalign. Always brush your teeth before leaving the house. Carry gum and/or mints on you.
Eat healthy – Feed yourself like a grown up. Know how to make simple meals. Show that you are capable of taking care of yourself and that you care about your appearance.
Workout – This will improve your mood, give you more energy, increase your confidence, and get you more in touch with and more comfortable with your body.
Have impeccable hygiene – Daily or twice a day showers (omg what a dream to not have to wash/blow dry your hair… I would take so many more showers)
Clean up your hands and feet – Short, clean nails. No crazy calluses. Get a manicure and pedicure if you have to (you’ll enjoy it trust me).
Moisturize your skin – If it’s dry or flakey make sure you’re not using a soap that’s striping all of the oils out of your skin. Switch to a moisturizing body wash and put lotion on after you get out of the shower will your skin is still damp.
Posture – If yours is not good, work on it. Practice. Stand tall.
Get new clothes – Ones that fit you well, are good quality, and can be worn on dates.

Heading into the autumn months it can feel like all the possibilities of summer are slowly seeping away. Those long, sunlit evenings, days by the beach and summer holidays abroad… When we think about the dark, gloomy weather that is about to come our way it can all feel a little bit depressing.
But it really doesn’t need to! There are lots of ways to maintain the spirit of summer even in those dark, wintery months. Why not pay homage to the god of all things beachy and sunny by re-creating summer hairstyles this fall? Get yourself some sun kissed locks and a casual sea-salt look. To keep the essence of summer alive why not try out a beautiful beach waves style? This classic occurs naturally after you’ve been in the sea, but it’s also recreate-able from the comfort of your own living room even in the depths of Fall.
I’ve been a huge fan of Southern Charm since the very first season and Cameran Eubanks consistently has absolutely amazing hair and makeup that look natural and effortless.
Since a lot of people have questions about her age- Cameran Eubanks aka Cameran Wimberly’s birthday is 11/21/83 making her currently 34 years old. One of Cameran’s biggest beauty secrets and the reason why she always looks so flawless- she used to be a makeup artist! (Source)
Cameran Eubanks Skin Care
Cameran usesOLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum ($48). This is a collagen boosting serum with vitamin C for brightening and all-day hydration. As we age we lose collagen so it helps keep things right and tight. It’s like a multi-vitamin for the skin and is oil-free. (Source)
At night Cameran uses the Caudalie Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Night Oil ($50). She says it wakes you up a new person. Umm that sounds amazing and I need to try this immediately. This oil helps to address skin damage caused by daytime external aggressors. Sonia Morgan is also a big fan of Caudalie skin care.
Cameran also loves the SkinCeuticals C + AHA Exfoliating Antioxidant Treatment ($135) which she said helped fade dark spots on her face after only 3 weeks! Impressive! This potent formula protects against damaging UVA/UVB rays, prevents premature signs of aging, and stimulates collagen production. The hydroxy acids exfoliate to smooth the skin and create a more youthful appearance. C+AHA uses both glycolic acid and lactic acid to slough off the rough outer layer of the skin revealing newer, youthful skin under the surface. Sonja Morgan also uses the C E + Feurulic from SkinCeuticals.

Cameran’s most recent beauty-related post on Instagram showed she’s loving It Cosmetics CC (Color Correcting) Cream ($38).This CC Cream has amazing coverage, feels lightweight, covers up dark sports, and has SPF 50! I love it!! It’s my go to for day and night!
Sonja Morgan of Real Housewives of New York City has really nailed the “I’m not wearing that much makeup yet I look incredibly polished and chic at the same time” look. She never looks cakey or overdone, yet always looks flawless! If you saw my Sonja Morgan’s Beauty Secrets – Skincare, Botox, Facials, and More post you know that Sonja takes amazing care of her skin and eats very healthy, but what is she putting on her face and body that is making her look so flawless? I still can’t believe Queen Sonja Morgan herself reposted my last blog on her Facebook, I mean is this real life!?!?
Ms. Cynthia Bailey the supermodel entrepreneur on Real Housewives of Atlanta just turned 50. Fifty years old ladies and gentleman! She looks absolutely incredible so I just HAD to do some research and find out what her beauty secrets are. I’ve even seen Cynthia in passing at the Grove in Los Angeles and she was absolutely stunning just like a supermodel should be.
“The thing that modeling has taught me about beauty is that it’s really individual. I work with so many different types of beauties, as a model. It’s not so much traditional. It’s about working with what you have and owning it. Confidence is so much of a part of being beautiful. I’ve met so many women who weren’t model-beautiful. Their confidence and everything about them is so beautiful to me.” – Cynthia Bailey (Source)
I live for a drugstore makeup run. The drugstores in LA are sometimes twice as expensive so I usually like to get drugstore products either out in the boonies/suburbs when I’m on a trip, at Ulta when they’re BOGO, at a Harmons in a Bed, Bath, and Beyond, at Target, or online from Amazon or Target (I sound insane, but drugstore makeup is the awesome!). If you haven’t tried drugstore foundations in the past I urge you to give them a shot and you might be surprised just how nice they can be! Day to day I tend to rotate through this batch because I’m not trying to spend every last penny I have at Sephora and MAC. For reference I wear NC20 from MAC even though it’s a bit yellow on me. I have oily/combination skin and lots of pigmentation I like to cover. Here we go! Continue reading Best Drugstore Foundations→
It’s about time I do a follow-up post on this, since it’s consistently one of my most popular posts! There’s a new article up on the Bravo website where Lisa Vanderpump from Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules discusses her 5 essential beauty products and they’re completely different than the last post I made!
