Tossing your hair and licking your lips?
There are more surprising (and effective) ways to be utterly seductive.
Yes, it’s that simple.
A bit of crimson has the power to put men in a lusty state of mind—one study even found they were 56 percent more likely to ask out a woman in a red top versus a white one.
That’s because men are hardwired to respond to the hue:
The color was used as early as 10,000 B.C. in lip color and blush to mimic the red flush we get when we’re turned on. Throw on a red dress and let primal instincts take over.
…EXCEPT ON YOUR LIPS
One study found that the lipstick shades men find most attractive are neutrals or soft pinks.
Steer clear of anything Nicki Minaj–inspired and take cues from your natural color, picking something a few shades pinker.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT PERFUME
We asked perfumers for the sexiest notes, and they all came back with the same answer: lush flowers, vanilla and amber, and powdery notes.
ANIMATE YOUR FACE
Blinking, nodding, and shaking your head: Weird but true that doing a lot of all three can make you more attractive to the average guy.
