Are you making the right makeup choices in order to find — and keep the one?

As a woman, it’s no surprise to you that just about every lady has an interesting relationship with makeup. You may have a daily routine with lipstick, eyeshadow or a magic concealer that you can’t go without. You may have a signature look that makes you feel confident. You may even hate it, but wear it for certain occasions for different reasons.

You may be surprised, but this tumultuous relationship with makeup actually influences love life. Is it for the better or worse?

1. Wear Eye Shadow? You’ll Get More Messages From Men Online
A lot of people romanticize eyes, saying they’re the windows to the soul. Perhaps this is why men prefer eye shadow on a woman more than any other kind of makeup. According to Zoosk, women received 139 percent more messages from male users once they posted a picture of themselves wearing eye shadow.

2. Red Lips Will Make Him Stare.
Sometimes you want to branch out to different lip shades especially when they are on trend. Orange is definitely a different take on a bright lip, nude is great with a smoky eye, but in the end the go-to color is red. Turns out men aren’t at all tired of red. According to a study from Manchester University, men will keep staring at a woman with red lips for 7.3 seconds, and Pink comes it at second by being able to hold a man’s attention for 6.7 seconds. Who knew red lipstick had mind controlling powers?

3. Your Undying Love For Makeup Could Come Between You Two.
Although some guys dig makeup, most end up saying how much they dislike it and prefer “the natural look,” however who can trust this comment when most of the “natural” models men drool over are covered with foundation? Well, it turns out that if it really comes down to your love for makeup or the significant other then things could take a turns for the worse. A new study found that 57 percent of women would break up with their boyfriend rather than break up with their makeup bag. So don’t pressure us, guys!

4. Men Want You Wearing Less Though
study done by Bangor University found that men prefer women who wear 40 percent fewer cosmetics along with women. So keep that in mind the next time you open your makeup bag.

Maybe she’s born with it, or maybe makeup is keeping her single. Read more on how makeup may make or break your love life on Your Tango.
