Beauty Pick Me Up - Turn Up The Volume!

When it comes to beauty, sometimes bigger is better. Luscious bombshell hair, shiny kissable pouts and flirty long lashes all point to the femme fatale look that has been toted as the sexy standard for years.

Not born with Kim Kardashian locks, Angelina Jolie lips or Eva Longoria lashes? So what? We'll tell you how to get all three by following just a few easy steps that are tried and true and expert approved! Check 'em out!

Full Bodied Hair - Skip the expensive salon blow outs and do these quick and simple steps at home!

On damp hair, rub in a quarter sized amount of volumizing serum or mousse between your hands and work it through your hair, focusing on the roots.

Turn your hair upside down to brush smooth and blow-dry. Style as usual, being careful to be more gentle at the roots. Finish it off with a few last spritzes of volumizing hairspray.

Pouty Kissable Lips - Make your lips appear fuller with just the help of a little white shadow shimmer and lip liner!

Place a small dot of shimmer in the bow of your upper lip and gently blend. Carefully line just outside of your natural lip line with a freshly sharpened lip liner. Focus more on the bow of the upper lip and the middle of the lower lip, tapering and fading out in the corners.

Fill the lip with a corresponding lip color and blend with a lip brush. Add a small dot of white shimmer in the center of the upper and lower lip and finish off with a coat of clear high shine lip gloss. Besos!

Thicker Longer Lashes - This method works best if you do one eye at a time. Using a spoolie (an empty mascara brush), lightly brush your lashes so they're separated. Curl lashes and brush on a lengthening mascara, wiggling from the root to the tip for even coverage.

Then apply a coat of volumizing mascara, also being sure to focus on wiggling the wand from roots to tip for maximum potential. Repeat these steps for the other eye.

After both eyes are complete, apply one more coat of volumizing mascara and voila! Long flirty lashes!
