According to guys, these beauty blunders are major first-date turn-offs.
Sure, it seems shallow – but at least these guys are honest.
Wearing too much makeup: Guys want you to wear makeup so it looks
like you are barely wearing makeup. Makes sense. Studies have shown that
guys prefer a more natural.
Don't overdo the perfume either: Guys want to smell you when they lean in
close, not from across the room.
Really long fake nails: Apparently, guys love a nice, clean manicure, but really
hate fake nails. Sweet! Save your money.
Bad breath: This goes both ways! No one wants to lean in and
get a face full of dragon breath.
