Beauty Bucket List 101

Whether you’re looking to meet people online or prefer to mingle in a downtown bar, one thing is for sure - when it comes to a real world encounter, looking fresh and polished makes an unforgettable first impression, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t resort to a few little tricks incorporated into your beauty routine in the most subtle of ways. We’d like to go over our top 3 picks for always looking like you've just stepped out of a salon, with a touch of effortless, natural and mischievous, ready to take on the world, but most of all, ready to meet new people and get more than a few hearts pumping!

#1: Organic Whitening Toothpaste

Organic beauty products are generally very popular at the moment due to various health concerns we all have with products we use on a daily basis. A toothpaste may not be considered a beauty product per se, but it should be right at the top of that list because there is no better accessory than a set of pearly whites. Also, whitening toothpastes are often way too harsh on the teeth, leaving them vulnerable and prone to breaking and chipping. However, we all want our teeth to present us in the best possible light, so instead of spending obscene amounts of money on whitening agents, getting a single organic whitening toothpaste takes care of the color of our teeth without damaging them, and most importantly doesn't expose our body to adverse agents, such as fluoride.

#2: Lip Balm

As sexy as certain shades of lipstick can be, a regular lip balm that highlights the natural color of your lips should always be in your purse, and on your lips, especially in the summer when hot and humid weather can melt your makeup right off your face. Ditch that sticky lip gloss that you can't eat or kiss with, and replace it with a sheer lip moisturizer, preferably made of organic ingredients. Mind you, any organic product, whether edible or used in your beauty regimen has a much shorter shelf life than store-bought brands, so you might have to replace it more often, but at least you'll know that the stuff you're putting on your skin on a daily basis is healthy. Last, but not at all least, your lips will be irresistible thanks to the proper care you apply.

#3: The Right Kind of Perfume

We are naturally attracted to the people and things that smell nice, and when a woman is wearing the right kind of perfume, it makes her 10 times hotter than all of the other beauty products combined. OK, that may have been a slight exaggeration, but the point is to remember that the right fragrance can do wonders for your social and romantic life. Choose a lighter scent for daytime, especially in the summer, and a stronger, sexier scent for evening. Fruity and flowery scents are a great lighter option for getting brunch with your friends or going shopping on a Saturday afternoon, whereas oriental, sensual fragrances should be an obvious choice for partying and seduction.
