Many people have different opinions of what is beautiful and what is not. Some may say the strive for beauty is part of human nature; wanting to mate with attractive people so that the next generation is more attractive and well-adjusted. In other words, some may say beauty is an essential part of evolution. To others, it is just a fetish that has come to be thought of as normal, and accepted throughout the years. All women want to be beautiful to attract a man... but sometimes looks alone won't help.
Men seem to like a little mystery in their women. They like what's on the outside, sure, but if a girl can play it off like there's more to her than meets the eye, she can hook almost any guy she wants. The issue, however, is that most women don't know how to do this.
The biggest piece of advice I can give on this subject is to hold back a little. Don't completely shut him out, but don't be an open book, either. If you see a hot guy at the bar, or around town, you definitely should not give him your whole life story right away. Give away your story, bit by bit. One step at a time.
The second step to being mysteriously seductive is to be confident in yourself. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, whether they choose to believe so or not. Think of your favorite trait on yourself, or just your favorite trait in general. Do your best to accentuate this trait. For example, people say I have beautiful, large dark brown eyes. To accentuate this feature, I wear some makeup to make my eye color pop--but not enough to cover my eyes! You don't need to smother yourself in inches of makeup to be beautiful, you have to have confidence in yourself. Many women don't even need makeup, but it may make them feel more confident in their appearance. I have absolutely nothing against makeup, but I advise you not to overdo it. Find out what colors make your eye color pop, or what foundation matches your skin tone (a word of advice which is off-topic: MAKE SURE TO RUB IN YOUR FOUNDATION COMPLETELY!! There is nothing more ridiculous-looking than a makeup line on the side of someone's face!) and put on a minimal amount of these colors.
The third step is to feel confident in your actions. If you're not one to go around, hiking up your skirt and showing off your boobs, then DON'T DO IT! Do what YOU find comfortable. Be alluring, but don't be a slut. A little bit of cleavage, and a tiny bit of extra skin showing is fine, as long as your comfortable. And remember; the eyes are a powerful tool. Learn how to show emotion through your eyes, without necessarily showing it on your face. Many men will find this mysterious and alluring. Smile, flirt, and seduce using your eyes.
Lastly, use your body to talk! If you are dancing at a club, make subtle yet seductive moves to catch somebody's eye. If sitting at the bar, having a drink, make small gestures which indicate your interested. For example, make eye contact. Sit or stand up straight. Face him confidently. To some men, there is nothing more sexy than a confident woman who isn't afraid to face him. Be yourself, and have faith! You can do it!

No fair. You never gave me a chance to defend myself. At least I now know the secret weapons women use against men.
