ya'll gave me nice answers and all but tbh, I'm looking for beauty tips. Thanks though.

I think just being well groomed/clean is something everyone can appreciate. All else is based on personal taste.

Its funny because vanity stuff ex's liked, others wouldn't. Just a simple one was an ex was obsessed with me having my makeup done. The person I ended up with thinks I look better without makeup. LOL

I just do what I want these days. He would always tried to get me to wear colors and i would just look at him like "bitch" and put it back. Its kinda of like our running joke now. If we go shopping he always pulls something off the rack that is OBNOXIOUSLY colorful and we both laugh. (i wear black all the time usually)

One thing I notice everyone kinda pokes fun at is if someone has something on that makes them look like they are trying too hard. A simple example: Someone buys shoes that look cute, but can not walk in them.

this is late but

I'm fucking ugly,but my boyfriend loves me to death. It was hard to believe that he likes me out of all the girls that stare at him. That's basically why I don't doubt that he loves me for me

Find someone who loves you in your ugliest moments and also be that person for them.

i was pretty close to getting engaged with my last boyfriend. then i realized he was a total douchebag, and i lost 150 lbs immediately. i've been engaged twice previously with different men lmao it SUCKS

 

imo you aren't missing anything. men/love is usually just a disappointment, waste of time. no one needs someone else to complete them, all that really matters is that you have yourself. you're the only person who's guaranteed to always have your back, you have to learn how to be your own best friend too. if you want to feel more attractive for your self confidence, that's great! but if it's just to have a relationship, you're going to be extremely disappointed. i used to be like that. 

 

finding real love has less to do with your looks, more to do with who you meet, and at the right time. chemistry is real. a lot of beautiful/hot ppl are chronically single just because they can't find someone compatible. i think most long term relationships are just about compromise and convenience. and if it's just about getting laid, most dudes won't say no to any girl who wants to bang lmao. literally just ask any of them, majority don't have standards like girls do.

 

also if your previous boyfriend is the kind of person who would be like that to another person, it says way more about him than you. he's garbage, and i hope you never care about the opinion of someone who's a piece of shit. he's just talking shit because he's scared you're going to tell people that he cheated, then no one will want to touch him or date him. so you should definitely tell ppl lmaooo.. only insecure and gross people cheat.

love just comes. if it's based on appearance, then it's not love.

Sorry there's no way to be "pretty enough" to be able to get a boyfriend, because everyone has their own tastes. You could be ugly to one person but beautiful to another. 

 

Your ex body shamed you because he's an insecure douchebag, who obviously can't get over you. Why else would he obsess about your body, pointing it out whenever he can? He just can't admit that he cheated, so he's trying not to make himself look bad. 

 

Just make sure you don't smell weird and that you are clean. Look good for your own damn self and love yourself.

Love yourself enough to not put up with any bullshit, from anybody first. Love usually comes when you're not looking for it at all.

The truth is being pretty won't get a guy to love you, only to lust after you for a short while. A long-lasting relationship/marriage is based on many other things such as compatibility, companionship, compromise, respect, and integrity. 

 

That being said, it's still important to be clean, take care of your health, and look put together. Don't try to be someone you're not either because the right guy for you will love you as you are. 

 

Also, if a guy body shames you, he's a jerk and you shouldn't give anything he says another second of thought. Sounds to me like you're better off without someone so superficial! 

 

Also, your stats sound like you're perfectly healthy. I'm sure you have a beautiful body. I hope you soon find a good partner who not only makes you feel beautiful, but loves you for who you are on the inside too. :)

Beauty tips:
You need to work on being the total package! That means go through every aspect of your looks and write down what you need to work on. For example,

BODY - If you need to lose weight, work on that. Do toning exercises if you're skinny-fat. Guys like a small waist and a perky butt, so do exercises that will help with that. Dress in flattering, feminine clothes. Don't dress too sexy, but do show a little bit (or wear covering-but-tight-in-the-right-areas clothes). Make sure it's flattering on your body and you feel sophisticated in it. Dresses and heels are the best (even a low or wedge heel if you can't do tall ones). Always look your best and put-together. Always wear perfume/body spray (guys are attracted to a nice scent).

SKIN - assess your skin - do you have acne or any other obvious problems? Work on those. For your body skin, be as hairless as possible at all times. Shave every day and be as soft and nice-smelling as possible.

HAIR - most guys prefer long, soft, and wavy hair. Do deep conditioning treatments and use shine spray/serum if your hair is dry. Get it cut in a style similar to Victoria's Secret models (some of them have shorter hair, but work on growing it out). Make sure your hair is always clean and smells nice.

MAKEUP - watch YouTube tutorials (that's how I learned) and get better at makeup. Don't do dramatic Instagram-type makeup, instead do things that look the best on your features. Look up the makeup that Victoria's Secret models wear and learn how to do something similar. Do a natural, shimmering eye, LONG lashes, a slightly glowing skin, and full natural colored lips. No super glossy, red or dark lipstick, that's a turn-off for most guys (because they want to be able to kiss you). Make sure your lips are soft and moisturized. Always get prettied up wherever you go! You never know where you'll meet your boyfriend.

NAILS - guys DO notice this. Keep nail polish or natural-looking fake nails on at all times, and make sure you don't have raggedy cuticles or anything gross. Don't forget about your feet. Keep your toes always polished (matching nail polish with your fingers, in a grown-up color is best) and get rid of any callouses.

EYEBROWS/EYELASHES - your eyelashes should be curled, and as long as you can get them with mascara. I wouldn't recommend false eyelashes unless you're a pro, because they'll look too fake. If you can afford eyelash extensions, that would be ideal. Eyebrows should be tweezed into a flattering shape, filled in to look natural if necessary, and then brushed up and set with eyebrow gel. Make sure they look natural! Guys hate fake, overly done Instagram brows.

TEETH - whitening is very important. Use crest whitestrips if you can, and a whitening toothpaste. If you can't afford it, use baking soda and lemon juice for a DIY version. Always keep them clean and brushed and with fresh breath (ready for kissing).

I think I covered all the basics, but if I missed anything or you have specific questions, feel free to ask me. I am a licensed cosmetologist. :)

Honestly, be healthy and take care of yourself. That'll attract the best kind of man imo.

Other input: Notice I said 'man'. Your boy was a boy lol. Don't worry about the f'cking boys. They're more trouble than what they're worth. Somebody who cheats on you isn't the guy that's going to fulfill your future so DON'T DWELL ON HIM. Focus more on yourself. Take time to truly fulfill yourself and take care of yourself and the right guy will come.

Thank you! This was the most helpful answer.

This spelled it out perfectly.

I literally only have three questions:  What does a "grown up" color for nail polish mean?

What to do about acne because over the counter stuff doesn't work and I literally cannot go to a dermatologist?

Now when you say hairless...what other than arms, legs, and armpits and the ass/vagina needs to be shaved/waxed?

Because that can get complicated considering humans have some form of hair everywhere except for palms of hands and bottoms of feet.  Is normal natural protective hair (that's not dark) acceptable, or are women only allowed to have hair on their head, eyebrows and eyelashes?

Basically...how hairless is "hairless"?

I don't think it's about being pretty, I feel like it's more about looking.. approachable I guess? Like look like you're nice to be around, happy, confident etc.

 

Not saying this to brag but I'm like the most insecure person I know yet I know guys find me pretty and cute (almost all of my boyfriend's friends tell him he's lucky and that I'm beautiful blablabla that's why I think I must be nice looking).

Anyway before my boyfriend  I had never had a boyfriend before and I was so insecure I thought I wasn't pretty enough so I'd just try to hide myself, I didn't really fake a smile I looked sad all the time but I still wanted guys to talk to me I still dressed cute it's not like I made myself ugly I looked the exact same as I do now, and my boyfriend told me he found me intimidating before we started to know each other. 

Point is I think your behavior is more important than how you look to find a boyfriend and anyway if someone is with you just for the way you look he's probably not a good person.

Okay, for the first one: can it be a DIY mani-pedi?

for two, I already do that but have acne I can't get rid of. I can't go to a dermatologist. Any suggestions? In fact I wear sunscreen even inside, because lighting can hurt skin too.

I do #3. I can easily do #4 and 5.

for teeth whitening can it be DIY safe treatments?

I already do the shower and shave lol. My eyebrows are naturally fine, but i am experimenting with shaping.

Already good on the sneakers, the bag, the perfume and lotion :)

I can purchase everything else.

Also, already got the Laniege mask! I really like it. Probably won't repurchase though and will look for animal-safe substitute.

 

These were good tips :)

DIY is totallly fine! Just remember to moisturize those cuticles afterwards.

So I really recommend using AHAs/BHAs and avoiding any drying acne products. Also using a skin milk or moisturizing gel for cleansing.

I really really don’t recommend wearing sunscreen indoors as the way sunscreen works is by creating a layer between your skin and the environment, causing it to suffocate, which way be contributing to your acne.

Whitening at home: brush with Baking soda + lemon mix for 3 days. Then continue using once per week. Unfortunately it’s a slightly abrasive method.
