How To Get Justin Bieber to Love You…

Posted by    |    July 4th, 2012 at 7:00 am

If you’ve been contemplating this since you first saw the teaser for the Bieb’s “Boyfriend” video, you should turn your attention to the lady who has managed to steal Justin’s heart. Rather than throwing darts at the photo of his lovely lady friend, how about taking some cues from her? Selena Gomez has always been bubble-gum sweet and sassy, but as she leaves her teens and becomes more accessible to her adult fans, she’s found a way to marry style, sex appeal, and girl-next-door freshness. How?  Let’s take a look….

1. Healthy Physique. 

Miss Gomez keeps herself at a normal, healthy weight and embraces her natural curves.  She isn’t a twig, and can often be seen indulging in a sweet treat now and then.  Regular exercise and adequate sleep keep her metabolism in check.

2. Natural, easy hair.

On the cover of this month’s Elle magazine, Gomez shows off her beautiful locks.  One thing you’ll consistently notice about her is healthy, shiny, effortless hair.  Once in a while she will go all out for a premiere, but on most days you’ll find her hair down or pulled into a neat pony.  Low maintenance = guy magnet.

3. Not Afraid to Wear Color.

Too often, women feel that black is the only color that consistently looks slimming and classy.  Why play it safe when bold colors send a more playful, fun, and empowering message?  Red has been proven time and time again to be a favorite of men the world over, so take a page out of Selena’s playbook and give it a try.

4.  Rock Jeans and T-Shirt.

Not every moment calls for stilettos and Marc Jacobs.  It’s okay to be comfortable!  If you’re going to dress down, throw on a stylish casual handbag and a few simple accessories.  Nothing looks better with a delicate diamond necklace or designer watch than a simple white tee and jeans.

5. Never Underestimate a Smoky Eye and a Little Cleavage.

Again, not an “everyday” look, but when the occasion calls for it, bust out (no pun intended,) the black mini and kohl eyeliner.  A little highlighter on your cheekbones, forehead, and decolletage will give you a fresh, dewy appearance and highlight those sparkling eyes.  Skip the false eyelashes if you’re going to be expecting a goodnight kiss-it can look too spidery up close. Just smudge a black or gray eyeliner above top and below bottom lashes and pile on the mascara!

Who knows if this love affair with Justin Bieber will last, but Miss Gomez has a handle on how to snag a quality guy by balancing glamor with reality. Let’s all do likewise!
