Be the girl everyone is staring at when you emerge from the ocean -- and not because your boobs have fallen out.
Step 1: Buy a one-piece Buy a one-piece bathing suit; it will stay in place better than a bikini.
TIP: Secure the back of your bathing suit with double-stick tape; there’s nothing sexy about picking your swimsuit out of your butt.
Step 2: Condition your hair Comb generous amounts of leave-in conditioner through your hair. Look for one with sunscreen.
Step 3: Pick a hairstyle Put your hair in a wave-proof style, like cornrows, braids, or a high ponytail.
TIP: Unless you already have a gorgeous tan, slap on some bronzer.
Step 4: Apply discreet makeup Look like a natural beauty by applying tinted sunscreen, waterproof mascara (to curled eyelashes), and clear lip gloss or a lipstick that’s the exact shade of your lips. Tame brows with some Vaseline.
Step 5: Do “the walk” Do the model walk as you emerge from the surf. Put one leg directly in front of the other with your head high, your shoulders squared, and your torso slightly back. Pretend you are on a runway in Milan.
TIP: When your feet are still obscured in the water, walk on your tiptoes to make your legs look long and sleek.
Step 6: Look haughty Have a confident, slightly haughty look on your face as you slowly make your way to your spot on the beach.
Step 7: Pick up your towel Pick up your towel without bending your knees. Flick the excess water from your hair as you gently pat yourself dry.
Step 8: Don oversized sunglasses Don dark, oversized sunglasses so you can discreetly check out the guys checking you out.
