Sex It Up, It’s Springtime!

Ok ladies, it’s time to strip off those flannelette PJs, get rid of the winter hair growth and bring sexy back! In springtime there are plenty of things you can do to sex it up. It doesn’t matter if you are single or not, either. In fact, if you’re not single, you’ve probably let the winter funk take over far more than the single ladies out there.

Springtime is the best time to recreate your presence. Lose a few kilos or make that overdue appointment at the local beauty salon. If your a DYI type of lady, stock up on products that will get your body back into peak presentation. It won’t only make you look better but it will put the spark back in your step. A confident lady is a sexy lady.

Hair

While you’re recreating yourself, head down to the hairdressers and, instead of getting the same haircut, go for something different. Yes, it’s brave and bold but it can also make you feel awesome. Check out the latest styles before you go in and choose something that screams sexy. It’s a great way to get maximum impact for minimal effort.

If you are getting up there in years, shortening your hair can increase your sex appeal. Long hair on older ladies can age them. Sure, it may have looked hot in your 20s and 30s but, in your 40s, it might be time to consider a change. Speak to your hairdresser about a sexy, shorter style rather than layered length. Even hubbies that prefer long hair will be pleasantly surprised at how hot their missus will look.

Nails

Having your nails done isn’t as expensive as a lot of people think. It usually lasts up to a month and when you calculate it per day, in many cases, it’s cheaper than a cup of coffee! Instead of going for a subtle, winter tone, go bright and bold. Springtime is all about colour, so why not add some to your nails? If you are a little apprehensive, nail technicians can add just a small splash of colour to the tips, which can brighten your sexy spring look.

Makeup and tanning

Makeup and tanning is a big part of being female but most men actually prefer a natural look. If you want to look sexy, keep that in mind. Don’t overcoat the tan until you’re sporting a fake orange glow. That really isn’t sexy! Use the less is more principle for tans and makeup and that’s how a sexy look is achieved.

If you are unsure of how much is too much, spend a few dollars and go to a professional. They will know which colors suit you and can help achieve that sexy look without going over the top. Being sexy is about bringing out your natural beauty, so make sure you aren’t hiding it under layers of makeup.

Wardrobe

Now, the wardrobe… You could head back into the darkness and pull out last year’s spring fashion, but why not spend a few dollars and add some of this season’s flair. Most of us have plenty we can mix and match, so add a few really well-chosen items. Don’t forget about the shoes and accessories when you think wardrobe. Handbags, jewellery and new shoes can add a new dimension to your look.

Classic chic French manicure

Joie’s spring/summer 2014 fashion show was inspired by the Mediterranean and a trip off the Amalfi Coast, with a pretty collection focusing on shades of white, a theme that was carried through to the nails.

Models wore natural nails but given crisp, classic white tips using OPI’s Alpine Snow; nails were then finished with a glossy coat of OPI Top Coat.
