While there are no definite rules on how to be pretty, there are definitely desirable features that make someone attractive.

According to science, faces that we deem attractive tend to be symmetrical and are also average-looking. So don’t worry if you don’t look like a high fashion model because that’s probably a good thing.

However, there are some other factors that are a detriment to your overall attractiveness. Attractiveness is a quality that causes interest and gravitation toward someone and that isn’t just about natural beauty.

1. Take care of your skin the right way

Determine your skin type.

This step is very important. Healthy skin is one of the first things people subconsciously notice on other people.

The first thing you need to do is know your true skin type. Not knowing your skin type can lead to using products that can worsen your skin in the long run.

There are many ways to find out your skin type. One of the methods is the bare-faced method.

You can try it by washing your face and leaving your face bare (without adding additional products like moisturizer) and checking your skin after thirty minutes.

If your skin feels tight, it’s probably dry. If you notice a shine on your nose and forehead, it’s most likely normal. If a shine appears on your cheeks too, then you probably have oily skin.

It’s also important to note that our skin can change over time due to many factors including diet, age, climate and so on.

Find your routine and stick to it.

Every type of skin needs a different type of skincare and routine. The Internet is full of advice on how to take care of your skin.

Look for what works for you based on your type. If you don’t see any improvement, ditch your current routine and find another one.

Some of the basic tips are regular washing, exfoliating one to three times a week (with mild exfoliants) and moisturizing.

Having breakouts can complicate things but they are possible to manage and the best thing to do is consult with a dermatologist first.

2. Accentuate your symmetry with makeup

The power of makeup is undeniable. Skillfully applied makeup can enhance the face and make all your best features pop.

You don’t have to be a makeup artist to be good at makeup. Everyone can learn the basics of putting on foundation, concealer, mascara and lip gloss and they alone will elevate your look.

However, if you really want to learn to make your face more symmetrical, you need to find what specifically suits your face.

Learn how to apply eyeshadow and eyeliner for hooded, downturned, small/big eyes or whatever shape you have. Based on your face shape, find the best method for contouring and putting on bronzer and highlighter.

See which style looks better on you—dewy or matte, cool or warm tones. Find your celebrity twin and study their best looks.

The best advice when it comes to makeup is to understand to not follow trends if they don’t suit us but stick with what looks best on us.

Radiant skin, big eyes, groomed eyebrows and plump lips always look good, as well as colors that match your undertone—something I’ll discuss later on.

For radiant skin, use moisturizer and primer before applying foundation (and drink a lot of water). Find a foundation that matches your skin perfectly, apply it using tapping motions rather than dragging the skin and blend it well.

Check if there are any harsh lines on your neck before leaving the house. And don’t skip loose powder if you have oily or even normal skin.

For big eyes, use natural-colored eyeshadows to create the optical illusion of bigger eyes (there are a lot of YouTube videos explaining how; try to find a person with an eye shape similar to yours).

You can use false eyelashes or get eyelash extensions for a more permanent solution.

For groomed eyebrows, visit a cosmetologist regularly or pluck your own eyebrows following the shape a cosmetologist made previously. Consider dyeing or bleaching them if they don’t match your hair color.

Having a good contrast on your face is crucial so don’t wait till your brows have fully grown to pluck them.

For plump lips, make sure they are exfoliated and hydrated before applying anything else. You can use a lip scrub (it’s easy to make your own) and moisturize with chapstick more regularly throughout the day.

3. Get braces

Teeth and smiles are very important for the overall look of a person. They can drastically change the look of your face and they are one of the things that can definitely be improved!

If you think you can elevate your smile by using braces, do it. Having straight, white teeth will definitely boost your self-confidence.

4. Brush and floss your teeth a few times a day

Keeping your teeth and mouth clean is not only a healthy habit but it affects your attractiveness as well. Fresh breath is so important in interaction with other people.

Having perfect teeth isn’t that important but having healthy and clean teeth is.

To keep your teeth clean and your breath fresh, floss and brush your teeth at least twice a day (but it’s good to brush them after every meal) and don’t forget to brush your tongue!

A neglected tongue is frequently a reason for bad breath.

If you’re on the go, use mouthwash and keep mints in your purse on all occasions.

5. Remove facial hair

All women have facial hair but not all of them have an excess of it. Some are more visible than others. If you’re annoyed with your facial hair, simply get rid of it.

These are a few methods you can try; tweezing (the easiest and cheapest but a little bit painful), threading (if you’re doing it on your own, you need practice), waxing (the fastest method) and laser (permanent removal done in salons or with home lasers).

You can also shave your hair but it’s not recommended because the hairs grow back blunt and look more visible.

Facial hair removal includes brow grooming and the upper lip area but also sideburns and other parts of the face like the chin or forehead baby hairs.

Having hair is completely normal and it’s nothing to be insecure or ashamed about.

6. Give yourself a face massage

Include a face massage in your beauty regimen. Why? Face massages reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, relax muscle tension and help remove dead skin cells.

They help to maintain a youthful and fresh-looking face.

7. Shower regularly

While showering daily isn’t necessary for your health, it’s a habit that makes us smell and feel better and less anxious about body odor. Keep in mind to use mild products on a daily basis.
