Eyeliner Overload

"The raccoon-eye makeup look à la Taylor Momsen is a big turnoff for me. All that eye shadow and eyeliner makes it look like she doesn't know how to use makeup, like a little girl." - Lawrence, 22

Makeup Mishaps

"I don't like when I can see a girl's foundation at her neckline. It makes me wonder why she doesn't like the way her face looks naturally, and it's clear she wears a lot of makeup. Or at least it's clear that she can't blend her makeup into her neck so that it's not obvious." - Alex, 31

Blinding Pearly Whites

"Overly-white teeth are a turnoff for me. I know you bleached them, and it looks synthetic and unnatural. In fact, I think it makes a woman's face look harsh." -Brian, 42

Honey Kisses

"I'm not a fan of sticky lip gloss. When I kiss her it feels like she's got honey smeared on her lips. Plus, I don't want to wear her lip gloss after we kiss." -Geoff, 23

A Jersey Shore Hairstyle

"The Snooki poof is not an attractive look. Overall I'd say avoid any look that makes your head seem like it's cone-shaped." -Brian, 42

Super Scented

"When a girl wears a ton of perfume, I feel like I can't breathe. If I can't taste my drink because all I can smell is whatever scent you're wearing, I'm probably not going to ask for your number." - Peter, 22

Cat Woman Nails

"I really dislike super-long nails. They look so unnatural and cat-like. And when a girl taps them when she gets impatient, that makes it even worse." - Lawrence, 22

Beauty Illusions

"I knew a woman who would draw a fake beauty mark on her face whenever we would go out. It's just obviously unnatural, and no guy is going to be into it when your beauty mark washes off in the rain." - Bryce, 23

Fake Baking

"I hate when girls go out of their way to be overly tan, especially if they didn't need it in the first place. Healthy, natural skin is far more attractive." -Addison, 19

Confidence Killer

"I dated a woman who would get really stressed out every time she didn't shave her legs for a day or two, and insist that I wouldn't like her as much. To be honest, I'm still going to think you're hot even if you go one day without shaving your legs, but if you keep declaring that that I'm not into you, I'm going to start wondering why I am in the first place." -Michael, 42
