Cosmo Makes Beauty Sexy (Surprise, Surprise)... 5 Of You Will Win The Book

Is there really a secret to looking gorgeous? Some may argue that Angelina Jolie has found it and is keeping those impossibly plump lips shut. But thankfully, Cosmo has leaked some crucial info in its new book, Cosmo's Sexiest Beauty Secrets: The Ultimate Guide To Looking Gorgeous. Known for its unabashedly racy content, Cosmo has compiled tips on how to pull off a sex kitten aesthetic, from romp-in-the-hay hair to smoldering eyes. And this must be your lucky week, because we're giving away copies of the book to 5 winners. How's that for sexy.

And, the gracious editors have shared some insider tips from the book with SheFinds. (Note: All below product picks are SheFinds suggestions, and not those of Cosmo.)

1. Shrink a zit instantly by dabbing it with toner then placing an ice cube (wrapped in tissue) on the bump for one minute. Use a spot-treatment product before dotting on concealer. Clinique's Advanced Concealer ($14) will cover blemishes instantly.

2. Get the shiniest hair imaginable by using an at-home clear gloss treatment, which will infuse your strands with potent polishers like silicone, jojoba oil, and vitamin E. Protect against frizz while you're at it with Citre Shine Laminating Anti-Frizz Serum ($6.89).

3. Make your eyes look larger by rimming the inside of your lids with white liner. Then define your upper and lower lashes with a charcoal liner and finish with three coats of black mascara. We highly recommend CoverGirl LashBlast in Very Black ($6.88).

4. Fake the look of fuller lips by blending a thin line of liquid highlighter along your cupid’s bow so light will bounce off it and play up this curvy area. Eternally the master of cosmetic artistry, Kevyn Aucoin's liquid highlighter ($22) will undoubtedly fill out your lips.

5. Get the exact lip color you see in the tube. Create a neutral base by dotting your lips with foundation before applying a nude or flesh-tone lipstick like NARS Honolulu Honey ($24).
