Sexy Beauty Secrets In An Instant


Karin Herzog Vitamin K Cream

Even if you've had a stressful day at the office, doing mommy duty or just dealing with everyday life, you can still amp up your sexiness factor in a matter of minutes to attend an evening party, date or other fun event.

Listed below are some quick and easy tips to provide a sexy new look in minutes.

1. Instantly depuff your eyes with caffeine. Of course if you had nothing but time you could use the trick of smoothing puffy eyes with two brewed, steeped and cooled green or black tea bags. Tea bags can be messy and can take 5-10 minutes to work.

Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Repair

An instant fix is an anti-puff under eye roller. Garnier Nutritioniste's Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller is a bargain at a suggested retail price of $13 and works like a charm to topically deflate under eye puffiness and reduce fine lines. I keep mine handy for eye puff emergencies.

A big depuffing secret is Karin Herzog's Vitamin H Nourishing And Repairing Cream used either on top of Karin Herzog's famous oxygen rich Vita-A-Kombi 1 or Vita-A-Kombi 2 cream. Vitamin H is famous for removing undereye puff.

Of course the Vita-A-Kombi combine oxygen, water, and Vitamins A and E - the essentials for healthy, balanced, moisturized skin - in a lightweight emulsion.

2. Make your eyes pop. If long days staring at your notebook have turned the whites of your eyes red you can instantly whiten and brighten them with a white eyeliner pencil. Just line the inner rim of your lower lash with the eyeliner and wave goodbye to red and tired looking eyes.

Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo

3. Create instant lift, fluff and puff with dry hair shampoo. Dry shampoo formulas provide a fresh sexy hairstyle update in a few minutes. My go-to favs include Rene Furterer (I love everything they do), TIGI's Rockaholic Diry Secret Dry Shampoo and KMS HairPlay

Note: Never, under any circumstances use baby powder. In a pinch without a commercial dry shampoo use cornstarch, oat bran cornmeal or oatmeal. Baby powder contains harmful ingredients which should not be inhaled, which is what happens when you apply to your hair.

4. Instantly touch up your roots.

When you don't have time or the budget to visit your hair colorist to touch up your roots there are instant solutions.

It only takes a minute, literally to touch-up for roots or graying areas with some of the amazing new products on the market.

Fix My Roots

Try Cover Your Gray which blends perfectly with your own shade for true-to-life results.

It's easy, mess free and mistake-proof. It also resists moisture. Cover Your Gray is available in a stick or a comb version in Black, Dark Brown or Medium Brown.

Another great option is Fix My Roots which comes in some fashion forward shades like Burgandy Red, Platinum Blonde, Fire Red and Strawberry Blonde.

A big secret of celebrity hairdressers to instantly hide roots or dress up or day old strands is to add a headband in a hue which complements your current hair color.

Not only does it give the illusion of highlights and/or lowlights, a well positioned headband can hide a myriad of hair sins. There is a dizzying array of headbands you can glide onto your hair in an instant in just about every color and price range.

5. Pull your tresses into a sexy side pony

Side ponytails can instantly transform your dry shampoo fluffed and root touched up tresses in literally less than five minutes. The beauty of a side pony is that it exposes your long and beautiful next, works with any face shape, works well with straight or textured strands and is one of the hottest hairstyles in Hollywood.

While a regular ponytail can look messy or too casual, a side pony, especially when paired with volume built throughout the crown and sides as the result of a quick back combing can look dressy and special.

Amp up your dressiness factor by adding a gorgeous hair flower, barrette or sparkly hair clip in a hue which makes your skin and eyes glow.

HairTopia Beautiful Hair Oil

6. Instantly smooth and soften dry ends

Just a drop or two of a jojoba oil based hair oil applied to the ends will help to smooth and soften them in a snap.

Jojoba oil works wonders on frizzy hair and prevents static electricity from occurring if the weather doesn't co-operate.

A great 100% all natural, organic jojoba based hair oil is Beautiful Hair Oil which is available in either drops or for a lighter touch it can be applied as a spray with the Beautiful Hair Mist.

For instant touch-ups you can tuck The Beautiful Hair Oil Travel Size in your handbag.

7. Block frizz.

Phytodefrisant anti-frizz creams

Depending on your hair type, texture and condition you may be also be able to instantly block frizz with a quick application of shine serums, shine inducing hair sprays or anti-frizz creams as a quick fix to control frizzies.

Remember that a little bit goes a long way and that it's best to avoid the roots or any parts of your hair which tend to naturally collect oils.

8. Add a sexy hair fragrance

If you've ever sprayed your fav fragrance in the air and then run through the resulting cloud hoping to scent your hair there's an easier way.

Unfortunately most perfumes and related colognes contains alcohol which can be drying to tresses. A quick and better solution is to apply a few drops of your favor frizz fighting shine serum into the palms of your hands and rub together.

Once the serum is well mixed mist your palms with your desired fragrance. Swipe the fragrant shine serum over the tops of your hair (avoid applying directly to the roots) to add a long lasting aroma with the added benefit of frizz busting shine.

Jojoba oil works wonders on frizzy hair and prevents static electricity from occurring if the weather doesn't co-operate.

Remember that when all else fails a great lipstick, gloss, stain or balm can instantly brighten your look. Nothing is sexier than a fresh painted lip.

Be sure to keep your favorite shade handy. For emergencies carry an extra tube in your handbag for an instant sexiness update.

Daily Hair Tip
For a low maintenance style, try to work with your natural hair type rather than against it. For example, if your hair is naturally wavy, select a hairstyle that works easily with the waves.
