These hot hair and makeup tips will make his blood pressure rise.
1. Beauty trick: Use blue eye makeup to amp up your bedroom eyes.
Break out of a black-and-gray eye makeup rut by swapping in a navy eyeshadow for a more subtle and sophisticated smoky eye. Apply color to both your lid and lower lash line, then gently blend. (Hint: Remove any dark shadow from your brow bone with a Q-tip to avoid verging into Snooki territory.)
I recommend Makeup Forever Eyeshadow Navy Blue 60 (matte navy blue)
2. Beauty trick: Flash him your sexy—and bright!—smile.
A killer smile is always a foolproof way to get his attention. To brighten up your teeth, try Crest 3D Whitestrips, and highlight the apples of your cheeks with a glowy cream blush.
Be careful not to overdo it with the Whitestrips!
3. Beauty trick: Add some strategic shimmer to your boobs.
Dust shimmer—not heavy glitter—on the top of your décolletage, in a capital T shape. For an even bigger boost, trace bronzer around the inside of each breast to enhance your cleavage—minus the push-up bra. (Even Victoria’s Secret super models use this ta-ta trick!) Be warned: After working a little beauty magic, you may have to pull out the old “Eyes up here, mister!” expression.
4. Beauty trick: Make your lips extra kissable.
A fire-engine red lip will definitely make him do a double take, but leaving your mark all over his face will likely remind him of his over-affectionate aunt—probably not the impression you were trying to leave. To get lip color that lasts, layer different textures, says makeup pro Gucci Westman. Apply a stain first, like Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Flame, swipe a matching lipstick on top, then add another coat of stain.
I highly recommend Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ
5. Beauty trick: Get bedhead waves the lazy-girl way.
Forget the gym ponytail—nothing says sexy like big, bouncy waves. “It’s surprising how many women have natural texture and always run for the blow-dryer,” says hairstylist Guido. His tip: Go to bed with damp hair. The next day, before a night on the prowl, wind a few sections around a curling iron and finger-comb.
6. Beauty trick: Try the fail-proof combo of dewy skin and sexy heels.
“I can never resist my girlfriend when she’s in a pair of high heels and a sexy dress that flatters her naturally amazing shape. It may seem simple, but it works like a charm every time,” says John Pels, 23.
7. Beauty trick: Work the sexy, slightly unkempt bun.
Take an all-business updo down a few notches by pulling out a few face-framing strands of hair for a soft, romantic look. Bend them around a curling iron and add a side part for even more sexiness.
8. Beauty trick: Use highlighter to get your glow on.
Dewy skin and doe eyes go together perfectly. For a luminous effect, apply highlighter where it counts (we like Sephora Collection Highlighting Compact Powder). Use a fan brush to create a C shape—start at the inner corner of the eye, swoop it over the brow bone and onto your cheekbone—then do the other side. Finish by running a little down the bridge of your nose, your chin and above the middle of your lips. Set it off with eyelashes guaranteed to make him swoon; apply a few false lash clusters, like Andrea Perma-Lash Flair.
9. Beauty trick: Show off your edgy side with a temporary tattoo.
If nothing else, a little ink is a conversation starter, guys dig a girl who walks on the wild side. Relationships aren’t always permanent, so make sure his initials aren’t either! Get your bad-girl vibe on for a night, then rinse it all off and play innocent in the morning—we like Hard Candy Inked Up Body Art.
10. Beauty trick: Be your naturally gorgeous self.
“I love it when my girlfriend curls up on the couch in her pajamas,” says John Kline, 34. Stay casually cute by swiping on a nude lip gloss (we like Neutrogena MoistureShine Lip Soother in Shimmer) and adding a spritz of your signature perfume in a few key places—behind the knees, inner thighs, wrists, behind the ears and in your hair. Whether you’re wearing a miniskirt or sweats, letting your personality shine through is the biggest turn-on of all!
