When it comes to hair and having the bombshell look, the bigger the better. To do this, it can take two simple ways.
For naturally wavy or curly hair:
Step One: Start with simply towel drying your hair when you come out the shower. Leave it in for about 5-10 minutes and then take volumizing mousse and scrunch it into the hair from root to tip.
Step Two: After that is done, take a blow dryer, tilt your head upside down and start blowing drying—again from root to tip—since your roots usually dry the fastest, and you want to make sure your bangs are parted properly.
Step Three: After blow-drying, straighten the bangs or leave them down, shake your hair and boom, volumized hair.
For straight hair:
Step One: Separate your hair into different sections and curl with a curling iron. The smaller the sections of hair, the more volume you will be able to achieve.
Step Two: Scrunch it with volumizing mousse and spray with firming spray to set curls.
Step Three: Shake your hair out, and I mean really shake it! This loosens the curls and gives you that extreme volume that's the signature-bed-head-Victoria-Secret look.
Oh, how sweet it would be to have Angelina Jolie lips. It isn’t fair that she has an amazing career and um, the hottest man, Brad Pitt, but she’s also rocking lips that could likely be equal out to two people’s lips put together. To be even more kissable and plump out your lips a little bit—or a lot, like her, then follow these little tricks:
Lip liner: Before applying lip gloss or lipstick, trace the outline of your lips. And a little secret—trace it more onto the skin, it’ll make your lips appear bigger.
Use lip plumper: Of course the more expensive the better for this, but in some cases, it’s not always true. Instead of shelling out $20.00 or more for a lip plumper, you could use one of the cheaper kinds. Check out brands like L’Oreal, Maybelline, or NYC, just to name a few.
Use cinnamon: One of the main ingredients in all those lip plumping formulas is cinnamon. Instead of buying one, try to make your own! Go out and buy some cinnamon and mix it into all of your go-to lip glosses.
The smoky eye is one of the most famous makeup looks for a date night or night on the town. But, it doesn’t always have to be restricted to just that. What you can do is include a more natural version to your daily makeup routine.
Pick a smoky color: Start by picking out a nice, smoky shade that will either match your outfit or just make your eyes stand out. The possibilities are endless: brown, gray, green or blue.
Prime the lids: Before putting on eye shadow, use some primer or cover-up on your eyelids to make sure that the makeup won’t crease. And then, using a small brush, starting from the corner, brush in the eye shadow, making sure that the whole lid is covered. Afterward, brush off any excess shadow that fell.
Apply eyeliner: If you really want the smoky eye to stand out, the best way is to add a little eyeliner on either the top lid or right on the lash line of the lower lid. Start by holding the skin by the eye. Hold it really tight to create a smoother surface to draw on the line. Add in an extra swoop at the end if you’d like, or just leave it short and sweet.
Apply light color to the crease: If you really want to make your eyes pop, then add in a shade lighter than your base color and apply it right into the creases. I love to use a shimmery white as it really makes the whole look stand out. Simply take a little eye shadow either on your finger or make up brush and just rub it into the crease of your eye. Afterward, take your two middle fingers and wipe off any excess shadow that fell.
If you watch Glee, then you’re bound of have seen Dianna Agron’s cheekbones and strong apple cheeks. It’s pretty hard not to notice, and is definitely one of her best features. Here, I’ve found some simple and cheap ways to copy the look.
Use bronzer: If you want a look that makes you look a little bit tanner than what you are, then bronzer is perfect, as long as you don’t go crazy. I’ve seen some girls with tanned faces and really white necks because they didn’t blend in properly. So, suck in your cheeks, and blend right into the crease where your cheeks have created a hallow space. Go over lightly, and if you did happen to go a little bit too crazy, then wipe some bronzer off and blend a little bit into your neck line to balance it out.
If you ask any guy, he’s bound to admit that confidence definitely makes a girl seem that much more attractive. It means she’s sure of herself, she doesn’t care if you approve of her or what she does—instead, her actions fall upon her, and she’s okay with that.
To own confidence, you have to believe in yourself. Sure, you can look amazing on the outside, with your hot outfit and gorgeous make up, but what’s the point if you’re not feeling beautiful inside? What you feel will radiate on the outside, and that means that your insecurities are bound to show to others at some point. So to own some killer confidence, start to really believe in yourself. Don’t let it get to the point where you turn cocky, but be just enough so that others, and even yourself, know that what you have is so extremely attractive.
The exterior of beauty is one thing, but the interior is a complete other. Work to match up the confidence that you’re presenting on the outside to the inside. Remember, the world doesn’t need glasses to see your beauty. Instead, with it presented inside and out, it’ll just radiate, naturally and in a bombshell fashion.
