There’s nothing like that random text from a friend (or boo) at work that has just invited you out for summertime after work drinks. You’re ready for that crisp, cool mojito or margarita. But, what about your makeup? You’re dressed for the corporate office, not a bar hopping evening.


No need to worry. Here are 3 ways you can make yourself look sultry and sexy in an instant, without all of the fuss (or the change of an outfit).


Water line your bottom lids

In addition to adding a heavier liner on your bottom lids, water lining your eyes can add a sultry effect you wouldn’t have even imagined. The only issue with water lining is getting the liner in your eyes. For that, try waterproof liners that are vegan or natural, like the Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil.


Add a dark, metallic shadow to your lids

Dab on a good, rich gold metallic shadow, like the Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow in Golden Brown Mirror. This will not only add a nighttime golden touch to your lids, but also make you look super sexy in the moonlit night without trying too hard. An added tip: add a few coats of mascara to your lashes for a full effect.


Swipe on a cat eye

This eye trend will never, ever go away. And why should it? The cat eye is the seemingly easiest way to create a sultry eye. That is, if you know how to do it. If you don’t, practice with this easy-to-use Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner. No matter what, just learn how to perfect the your cat eye. You’ll thank yourself and you’ll have your ultimate go-to makeup trick for when you want to add a little sex appeal in a short amount of time.
