Quick Tips for Feeling More Attractive
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! It comes in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and personalities. There is not a magic trick to be beautiful, but these tips will help you feel more attractive!
Make Your Eyes Pop
- Brighten dark circles under eyes.
- Curl your lashes.
- Brighten your waterline.
- Use eyeliner to accentuate your eyes.
- Wear eyeshadow that brings out your natural eye color.
- Don't forget mascara!
Brighten Dark Circles Under Your Eyes
If you are one of the many women that suffer from dark, puffy eyes, you know that it makes a big difference in your appearance. It makes you look tired and ages you several years. You can depuff your eyes by using a cold spoon. Keep two teaspoons in the freezer to ensure they get nice and cold. Then on the days that you need it, simply put them under your eyes for about three minutes each. The cold will help constrict the blood vessels, which will depuff the eyes.
Next, you should find a great concealer to cover the dark circles. Look for shades with peach undertones in order to get rid of the blue and purple color of under-eye circles.
Curl Your Lashes
Curling your eyelashes is one of the best things you can do to make your eyes pop. I highly recommend buying an eyelash curler. The curled and lifted look of your lashes will make you appear refreshed and younger.
Brighten Your Waterline
Using a light color eyeliner is a quick and easy way to make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. Try using a flesh-toned eyeliner right on the lower waterline to make your eyes really pop!
Use Eyeliner Strategically
Eyeliner is a great way to create the look of a wider or smaller eye. It can be used for soft, feminine looks and bold and powerful looks. Its main purpose is to make the lashes look thick and full, but it also draws attention to the eye and can enhance your current shape or change it for a more dramatic effect.
Wear Eyeshadow That Brings Out Your Eye Color
Some people choose eyeshadow color based on their outfit, mood, or other makeup, which is great but choosing a color that really brings out your natural eye color will really make your eyes stand out. Here are some colors to try based on your eye color.
If you're lucky enough to have brown eyes, you would look great in most eye shadow colors! Purple, bronze, blue, and green are just a few great options for you. Lighter brown eyes look especially good with blue eyeshadow. If you have gold flecks, try adding a shimmy gold or bronze!
Earth tones, such as rich brown and orange enhance blue eyes. Shimmery grays and silvers will also look great. If your eyes have a touch of gold in them, bronze and gold shades will bring it out. Try a coral or champagne for a natural look. For added drama, try a dark smoky eye.
Hazel or Green Eyes
Hazel and green eyes look best with natural hues. Earthy colors with red undertones or hints of gold. However, shades of purple will make for a beautiful and sophisticated contrast.
Gray eyes are similar to blue eyes but look best with complementary hues like silver, dark grey, and icy blue shades. Gray eyes are rare, so play them up to show off your unique eyes.
Mascara is the most important step in making your eyes pop. In fact, most celebrities and makeup artists will say that if you can only wear one type of makeup, make sure it's mascara! It instantly adds length, volume, and color to the lashes, which draws attention to your eyes. Whether you want a soft, feminine look or a bold and sexy look, there is a mascara for you.
Have a Beautiful Smile
- Take care of your teeth.
- Whiten your teeth.
- Accentuate your lips.
Take Care of Your Teeth
The best and easiest way to have a great smile is to take care of your teeth. This means to brush and floss regularly and to go to the dentist for regular checkups. Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly will keep your smile whiter, breath fresher, and even keeps you healthier!
Whiten Your Teeth
Having pearly whites really makes for a better smile! So avoid coffee, red wine, and cigarettes to keep from staining your teeth. If you can't avoid those things, make sure that you brush your teeth extra well, and use a toothpaste that has a whitener in it. You can even go to your dentist to have your teeth professionally whitened and cleaned, but for a cheaper option, your local store will have whitening strips, toothpaste, and mouthwash!
Accentuate Your Lips
Make your lips stand out to flaunt your beautiful smile! A bright red lip with blue undertones makes your teeth appear whiter, but you can also try a fun color like purple, blue, or black for a more unique look. Considering adding a gloss with a lip plumper for a poutier look.
Wear Bold Colors
Wearing certain colors can make you look slimmer, sexier, younger, and grab people's attention. While you should wear colors that make you feel comfortable and confident, certain colors are proven to make others perceive you differently if you wear them. You can use this to your benefit.
- Wearing black can create the illusion of a thinner and taller body.
- Black is often perceived as classier and more professional.
- Black is a timeless color that will never go out of style. It can be worn in almost any scenario.
- Wearing black has been known to make people feel more confident.
- Red is the color of passion.

Find Your Scent
One of the best benefits of wearing perfume is it helps to enhance your mood. With the right scent, you can give off several different vibes. You can be playful, sexy, fierce, or innocent just by changing your scent up. Here are some scents to try.
Vanilla is a common base note in many popular fragrances, and it has been known to turn men on. It’s a natural aphrodisiac, and many surveys have proven that it really does have a euphoric effect.
This tropical flower is said to be one of the strongest aphrodisiacs. This scent energizes men and women. You can find many perfumes and body sprays with this sexy scent.
Lemons, oranges, and grapefruits aren’t just good for you—the smell of the fruits can boost your body’s production of serotonin. Serotonin is what makes you happy, so it can reduce levels of stress hormones. Lemon is one of the most powerful scents of the citrus family. It increases mental stimulation, making you more focused and alert.
The smell of this yummy dessert is proven to increase arousal in men. One study found that that the scent of pumpkin pie mixed with lavender increased blood flow to the nether regions by 40 percent.
The smell of pumpkin pie mixed with the smell of doughnuts increased blood flow by 31.5 percent. Scientists speculate that the men might be reacting to the vanilla and cinnamon. Either way, these scents will make you smell sweet, and who doesn't want that?
