How to Look Good Naked
As women, we tend to be more critical on ourselves than anyone else, managing to find every little blotch and blemish or lump and bump on our bodies. So when it comes to getting busy in the bedroom, it can often be a rather frightening experience getting down to your birthday suit.
Here are our top tips for looking and feeling great in the buff or close enough to it.
1) Get a Tan
There’s no denying that we all feel a little healthier and happier with a golden glow. Now that we have tested the craze of ‘contouring tans’ – you can read about it here: http://womanwithdrive.com.au/optical-illusions/ – we are converted for life. Just like contouring on your face, contour tanning gives the illusion of leaner limbs and slimmer lines without the need for exercise. So if you have a hot date pending, be sure to book in for a tan at least 24 hours beforehand.
2) Scrub Up
Exfoliating is the key to silky, smooth skin, especially after winter when we tend to pay less attention to this vital organ. Give your body a good scrub and wash away all the dead skin cells as this is the key to beautiful, glowing skin.
3) Shine, Shine, Shine
While make-up can often make us feel sexier, there’s nothing less sexy than a day-old face smeared across a white pillowcase. Try not to go too heavy on the foundations and eye make-up and instead opt for a radiant shimmer powder. Hourglass, available from Mecca, has a great range of powders that help illuminate the skin and give a lasting glow.
4) Bright Eyes
They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so if you plan on a long night of window gazing, be sure your eyes are bright and alive. Eliminate blood-shot, red eyes with eye drops. These are a handy little lifesaver to have on standby.
5) Muscle Power
There’s no need to spend hours in the gym before the big night, but a few sit-ups and squats in your bedrooms at home will leave your muscles looking more toned without you feeling exhausted.
6) Pick Your Poison
A few dabs of perfume will ensure you smell sensational and draw attention to your décolletage and wrists. Opt for a warm, spicy fragrance such as Coco by Coco Chanel.
7) Stand Tall
Never underestimate the power of a great pair of heels. Once you slip into those stilettos you will feel instantly sexier. They will also help lengthen your legs, lift your butt and create the illusion of a slender figure. They also do wonders for your confidence!
8) Pick Your Pose
Standing front-on can draw attention to areas we have tried so hard to avoid, so pick your pose carefully. Turn so you’re at a 3/4 angle. This accentuates the curves of your chest, butt, and thighs and is far sexier than just standing straight.
9) Find the Right Light
There are very few women that would feel comfortable in full lighting while nearly naked. Let alone the feeling of fluorescent lighting that wouldn’t even do a Victoria’s Secret model any favours. Dim the lights and light some candles. This will help set the mood and help you avoid any harsh lighting.
10) Be Confident
At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you feel great. This will radiate from the inside, out. A confident woman is the sexiest of all. This is your ultimate weapon in the bedroom.
