• 1. Wear lace. Not only is lace one of this season's hottest fashion trends, it also has transformative powers. "Wearing a lacy top or dress can transform a woman into a seductress. It's a way to express your feminine side because when you slip into lace, you automatically feel girly and romantic. Lace has a magical effect on men because they anticipate what's going to happen when the lace comes off," says Dr. Ava Cadell, relationship expert and founder of  Loveology University. This shot of Minka Kelly in a blue lace dress says it all.

  • 2. Play up your eyes. "Men are generally attracted to women with bigger eyes, fuller lips and bigger breasts because they look youthful and sexy. These attributes are also a sign of fertility with higher levels of estrogen that make these women good candidates for mating," explains Dr. Cadell. Here, Mila Kunis is wearing Lancome Color Design Palette in Bronze Amour ($48, lancome-usa.com), a collection of shimmery brown eye shadows that create a smoky eye that is seductive, but not overwhelming.

  • 3. Make your lips look pouty. Salma Hayek shared this trick on how she makes her lips look fuller: She highlights the bow of her upper lip using the shimmer cream stick that is in her Nuance Lights, Camera, Action Eye Trio ($8.49, cvs.com). When the light hits her face, the shimmer reflects the curves of her lips, making them look more shapely and plump.

  • 4. Play up your cleavage with caution. "A little cleavage is a tantalizing turn-on for a man who enjoys the chase, but too much cleavage can make you look like the hunter and be a turn-off, unless you're a one-night stand," says Dr. Cadell. Here, Malin Akerman strikes the right balance by wearing a low cut top that even reveals a bit of her lacy bra, but because her tatas aren't too big, it looks chic, not cheap. The rule of thumb: The more you are naturally endowed, the less pushing up and out you need to do. A subtle shimmer cream always helps too.

  • 5. Sweep your hair to one side. "Long sexy hair parted on the side demonstrates a sassy confidence and displays the beauty of feminine bare shoulders. Be sure to shrug them seductively when you lock eyes with a man. This is a great flirting technique," says Dr. Cadell. We have seen the style everywhere, including here on Emmanuelle Chriqui, so the look is definitely a hot hair trend.

  • 6. Wear red. Men who participated in the University of Rochester study found women more attractive and sexually desirable when they wore red. They even said they would spend $15 more on a date with her. The researchers took a photo of a woman who got high scores for her looks on the website and altered the color of her shirt. When she was wearing red, she got higher ratings.

  • 7. Wear a simply sexy fragrance. "Since fragrances can heighten a man's sexual magnetism towards a woman, you want to be sure that you apply just a dab to compliment your own personal scent known as pheromones. Stick to subtle aromas that guys can easily identify such as a hint of vanilla, rose, orange blossom or lavender,"says Dr. Cadell. A new scent we love this spring: Burberry Brit Rhythm for Her ($53, sephora.com).

  • 8. Make your hair look really shiny. "Having silky smooth shiny hair makes you look healthy and sexy. You can flirt by flicking your hair in front of him and seduce him by giving him a sensual massage using only your hair," says Dr. Cadell. Up the glossy factor of your hair with a shine enhancing serum. The new Shu Uemura Art of Hair Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil ($69, shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com) contains antioxidant-packed camellia oil to protect and coat dry strands.

  • 9. Wear something unique. "Wearing a hat or unique accessory that suits your style or clothes with unusual logos are all great flirting props," says Dr. Cadell. The idea is that you'll stand out from the crowd, and the unique piece could even be a conversation starter. Here, Kim Kardashian wears an Egyptian Hair Chain ($55, shopbop.com) from her new Belle Noel jewelry line.

  • 10. Slip into some high heels. This sounds like a real no brainer, but just remember the next time you're getting dressed and feeling too lazy to wear high heels, get over it. "It is hard not to feel sexy in a pair of heels; they change the way you walk as heels thrust the hips and breasts forward, rounding off the buttocks, making a woman sensuous and appealing. They make feet look smaller and legs look longer, firmer and thinner," says Dr. Cadell. We think Lea Michele's stance says enough, right?
