Hype Chat: Sevyn Streeter Shares 7 Beauty Tips For Dealing With Men

SevynHype Hair: What would be your preferred look when telling off a guy?

Sevyn: Honestly, it’s going to be a sexy little dress, probably one with a split. Whether I’m going out or not, I’m going to pretend like I’m going somewhere after I leave him. I’ll probably be wearing my own hair, a really deep side part and probably a ruby red lip. I’m going to look like I mean business.

So on the flip side, when you’re in a relationship, do you spend more time wearing makeup or fresh-faced?


S:: When I’m in a relationship I actually spend more time taking care of my skin. A lot of men aren’t crazy about women wearing a lot of makeup, and honestly women don’t want to be bothered with it either.

I love Mario Badescu products. I actually have a bottle in my shower as we speak. He has this [Glycolic Foaming] cleanser that’s really great. He has this pink [drying lotion] that you could use for pimples and it will literally dry out a pimple in the night. You can get it at Nordstrom.

I’ll have to check it out. What is the beauty product that gives you the most confidence to flirt with a guy?

S: I love a good bronzer. I love to feel like that golden look. When it’s applied correctly, it can look like you’re not really wearing much but he don’t have to know. There’s a Mineralize Skinfinish bronzer by MAC and I’m obsessed with the color.

Besides the bronzer, what beauty product do you need to replenish all the time?

Sevyn Streeter: I have to have my Make Up For Ever HD foundation. I like it because it’s not thick. I like light foundations, so I have to have that.
