Don’t believe everything you see on the cover of a magazine. Lighting, make-up and air-brushed pictures can make any woman look breathtaking. True beauty begins within ourselves and radiates to the outside. Looking beautiful in lingerie isn’t complicated. With a few simple tips you will radiate beauty and feel confident and sensual in your lingerie.
Purchase lingerie that makes you feel sensual and beautiful. Based on your shape this can be accomplished by choosing lingerie that accentuates your body type. Look for particular styles, fabrics and colors that blend with your skin tone or personal style. Black lingerie is popular and looks best on those with a yellow skin undertone. Darker skin color or olive tone skin looks best in shades of white or reds. Those who have fair skin look best in reds or darker colors. If you are fair skinned stay away from shades of white when you are purchasing lingerie, it will make you look pale and washed out. When you are deciding on color its best to buy colors that appeal to your skin tone.
Lingerie looks beautiful when your skin is supple and soft. Buy a body scrub that smells tantalizing. A few good ones are honey scrubs, almond scrubs and sugar scrubs. Exfoliation of the skin is important because it sloughs off dead skin cells that make your body look tired and dull. Once you exfoliate your skin will have a radiant glow.
After you have exfoliated your skin from head-to-toe its good to apply a deep moisturizing lotion to the skin. Add a little drop of baby oil to the lotion to make your skin smoother.
Regular tanning is dangerous and not recommended; but using sunless tanning creams with provide you with the radiant glow that you are looking for without natural sun. Sunless tanning products have come a long way. There are many over-the-counter creams that will give you that sun-kissed look you are desire without turning your skin orange.
Hair and Make-up
If you hair is long wear a sexy up-do. If its a little shorter add curls or use a flat-iron to make your hair silky smooth. When it comes to make-up use a bronzer or a bronzing moisturize to even out your skin tone. Make sure the bronzer blends well with your skin tone. The top of your hand right above your thumb is a great place to sample different shades of bronzer. If you apply it and it appears more transparent you have chosen the right shade to blend with your skin. To finish off your look you can use a little mascara and your favorite shade of lip gloss. If you really are looking to heighten the effect and radiate a more sexual look, go with fake eyelashes, black eyeliner, neutral color eye shadow and a dark red lipstick.
Manicures and Pedicures
You don’t have to spend big bucks on a manicure and pedicure. If you have a manicure and pedicure kit you can do-it-yourself. Use a foot scrub and buy a pedicure egg and ex-foliate the dead skin from your feet. For your hands you can buy manicure wax at any beauty supply. Microwave it for a few seconds and dip your hands into the wax. It eliminates dead skin cells and your hands will feel soft and silky.
Accentuate your lingerie with a few pieces of jewelry. A nice necklace, pair of earrings and some bangles and bracelets will dress up your lingerie nicely. Feeling beautiful in lingerie does not have to be expensive. If you take time to pamper yourself and heighten the effect of you exterior beauty, you will feel beautiful not only on the inside; but on the outside too.
