Magazine-worthy beauty & style

For an ultra glamorous style that is worthy of a magazine cover, you need flawless skin, shiny hair and that come hither look. Follow our beauty tips and tricks to recreate the magazine cover look.

1Magazine worthy beauty and styleGet flawless skin

A flawless face starts with healthy skin. Establish a daily skincare routine that cleanses, moisturizes and protects your skin. Be sure to use products that are geared toward your skin type, and don't think it's too early to start worrying about wrinkles. Check out these tips to stop wrinkles before they start.

2Conceal imperfections

Everyone has pimples, age spots and other flaws on their skin. To even out your complexion and hide imperfections, use concealer before applying your foundation. The key with concealer is to blend, blend, blend, so that it doesn't look cake-y. Follow these make-up tips and fixes to hide zits and dark under eye circles.

3Get healthy, shiny hair

The first thing that you notice about the beauty on the magazine cover is her healthy, shiny hair. To get the look, start with a good haircut. The SheKnows Beauty & Style Divas have put together hairstyle ideas and tips to help you find the best hairstyle for you.

With any haircut, get a trim regularly to avoid split ends and flyaways. To keep your hair looking shiny and sleek, use a hair serum and products geared toward protecting your hair from the heat of styling tools. Several lines, including John Frieda, Nexxus, Pantene and Got2b, offer products with thermal styling protection.

4Consider extensions

If you want long flowing locks, but your hair is actually short and sweet, extensions will do the trick. Hair extensions have come a long way in recent years and now can look extremely natural. Learn about the pros and cons of extensions and find which type of extensions are right for you.

5Flash your pearly whites

Every magazine cover model has clean, white teeth. If your teeth are looking a little yellow or dingy, ease up on the coffee, tea, red wine and other foods that can cause stains. You don't need to spend a fortune on bleaching treatments at the dentist's office. Many over-the-counter whitening products will do the trick.

6Get the sultry look

Smoky eye make-up and glossy lips are a big part of a sexy, sultry look. It's also about what you wear. Find one part of your body that you really love and emphasize it. If you love your shoulders and arms, wear a strapless dress. If you have great thighs, put on a tiny miniskirt. If it's your chest that's worth mentioning, then a deep v-neck top is your best bet. But it's not just the make-up and clothes that make a difference - it's your attitude. Confidence is everything when it comes to sexiness. Feel good about yourself and you'll look good too.
