Sexy isn’t about perfection. Sexy is all about mystery, captivating and being a little rebellious. Confession time: we’ve all fallen asleep with our makeup on once or twice (or more, but who’s counting?). We can also admit that we’ve hesitated to reach for the makeup remover once we’ve looked upon the sultry face staring back at us in the mirror. Well now you can get this red-hot look on purpose (without worrying over clogged pores).

This come-hither effect all starts with your lash line. Line your entire lash line, as well as the entire rim of your eyes with your go-to liner. Have fun with your favourite shades, like the QUO Eye Dare You Liquid Liner in Indigo for its brilliant shade and precision.

Next up is eyeshadow. Darks are best, like blacks, browns or even deep purples, as they mimic the sultry look. You can’t go wrong with the warmth of Quo’s Eyeshadow Palette in Neutral Ground. Just press the shadow on top of your liner for a softening effect. If you’ve used too much, no worries! Apply a little bit of Vaseline on a cotton ball and dab the area to remove any excess eyeshadow.

Mascara is a must! Reach for a product like CoverGirl’s Clump Crusher Mascara by Lashblast, to add volume and drama to your lashes. Trick of the trade: hold the wand vertically and swipe the tip of the brush from root to tip to really bring out each luscious lash.

Finally, complete the look with a light lipstick shade to keep the focus on your eyes, like pinks, peaches and apricots. We’re tickled by L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Lip Color, Tickled Pink – it’s rich, creamy, soft and pretty.

That’s all there is to it. Behold: you’re a bombshell (but you always were)! There’s a reason why this edgy lived-in look is such a hit on the runways. It’s effortlessly sexy, looks gorgeous on everyone and there’s no way to mess it up (as that’s exactly what you want to do).
