Ask Cosmo Anything
From random little issues to major life dramas, we’ve got your back. Q. Ripped jeans are sexy, but I don’t want to buy them. How can I make my old jeans look hot, not trashy? A. Q. I love the cat eye (like Kate Moss and Kim Kardashian do it to perfection)
It’ll be a rough sell no matter what you write, since they likely felt dissed, but your best bet is to mention the Timeline feature. Say that having your past more out in the open made you hyper aware of just how much info you’ve been sharing, so you’re trying to be less public. To assure your pals that you’re not blowing them off, give out your personal e-mail and say, “Hit me up whenever.”
fashion team suggests choosing boyfriend-style faded jeans, not dark ones. Cut three or four holes, no more than two inches each, on the thigh of each pant leg, scattering them randomly so they’re not in a straight line. Use a scissor edge to fray the freshly snipped denim.
Try ‘kitten liner’, a hot new trend that’s a more subtle version of the look and will make you stand out, but subtly. To get it, simply run a liquid liner along your upper lash line, starting thin at the inner corner and getting thicker as you move outward. Then flick the liner up and out in the cat- like shape, but go only about a quarter inch past your eye. It shouldn’t look blotchy and uneven.
He probably likes the attention, since it’s a new thing, so the key for you is to compliment him too—without seeming jealous. Next time a girl ogles, say, “Well, she’s got good taste”. He’ll like the remark...and you for not going all greeneyed monster on him. Plus, research has found that guys are attracted to women who compliment them, so your boost will bond your relationship, too.
Text or e-mail her: “I know things are awkward right now, but I need that dress for an event. Can you please leave it with your roomie for me, and we’ll talk later?” Since you’re not being rude, she’ll likely comply... and then you can hash out your actual issue down the road, once you’ve both cooled.
If you’re exploring solo, recline so you’re sitting with your back against a pillow and your legs outstretched. Use some lube, and insert two or three fingers inside your vagina. Press the pads of your fingers against the front vaginal wall (the same side as your stomach). Feel around for a swollen, puckered, wrinkly area about 2 to 3 inches up from the opening—it’s usually about the size of a dime. If your guy is the one on the hunt, he’ll have easier access if you lie on your stomach, legs apart, with a pillow underneath your hips so they’re elevated (and then he should do the same thing with his fingers).
