Your boyfriend always swears you look great, even when you’re battling a serious case of under eye circles and haven’t washed your hair in three days. If you’ve ever wondered what he really thinks, check out this Cosmo slideshow. They performed an unscientific poll of 100 men to gather their opinions of the biggest turn-ons and turn-off when it comes to women’s hair and makeup looks. While you should take their tips with a giant grain of salt, it’s worth a read. Major takeaways: men prefer smoky eyes to bright colors, loathe heavy foundation, and frown on nail decals. But when all’s said and done, we’re not willing to stop playing around with funky jewel-toned liners or change our creative manicure plans any time soon.
