Then…How Can I Get Biceps ASAP?

Here are the top secrets we’ve compiled just for you:

Trick #1: Fashion Illusion

Well, let’s kick off with a tried-and-true method: optical illusion. Yep, you heard it right. With just a little bit of fashion finesse, you can trick everyone’s eyes into thinking your arms are the eighth wonder of the world.

Here’s how you can pull this off:

· If you’re lean, fill your drawer with fitted clothes. They accentuate your physique, carving out every muscle you’ve got.

· Color is a big factor too. Just as you can’t deny the color black to girls for a slimmer look, light colors can be your best friends. They reflect light, casting shadows that add depth and dimension to your arms.

· Your clothing’s fabric matters as well. Opt for stretchy fabrics with at least 20% polyester blends. They cling to your body, highlighting every bump and groove. Plus, they make it easy to move!

· The stopping point of your t-shirt is a game changer. Aim for ones that end at the base of your deltoid muscle, where your bicep begins. It creates an illusion that your biceps are so pumped, that they’re about to burst out of your shirt!

Fashion Illusion

· Got a button-down or long-sleeve shirt? Roll those sleeves up. It sections your arm, giving it “more mass.”

· Wearing a vest can help delineate your arm from your torso. It emphasizes the separation, making your arms look more pronounced.

· Fashion is so important for many people for a reason! All you need is a good eye for clothes, and those fake-toned arms can be yours in no time!

Trick #2: Spray Tan Contouring

Grab your phone, and dial up your favorite spray tan professional. Yes, you read that right! Spray tanning isn’t just for giving your skin a sun-kissed glow. It’s a clever trick, often utilized by models and celebs for photoshoots and special events, to add a little je ne sais quoi to those biceps of yours.

Spray Tan Contouring

The process is pretty straightforward. Your spray tan pro will apply darker shades to the recesses of your muscles and lighter shades on the peaks, creating an illusion of depth and definition. A spray tan contouring session usually costs around the $75 mark. It’s not exactly chump change, but hey, those fake muscles are worth every penny!

Trick #3: Body Makeup Shapeup

Does the idea of a semi-permanent tan solution (that lasts for like, 10 days), gives you the jitters? Maybe you’ve got a dab hand at wielding a makeup brush? The body makeup could be your magical ability. Perfect for a quick fix and exceptionally handy when your special someone whips out the ‘impromptu date’ card out of the blue. Plus, it’s a lifesaver if your nearest spray tan professional is miles away.

· Go for a matte bronzer or a foundation that’s a couple of shades darker than your skin tone. The matte finish is key here. You want to mimic shadows.

· Flex those biceps and take note of where the shadows fall naturally. That’s where you’ll apply the darker shades. Bonus points if you can find a muscle anatomy chart online!

· Use a blending sponge or a kabuki brush to apply the makeup in a circular motion. Remember, no harsh lines!

· Apply a lighter shade of makeup or a highlighter on the peaks of your muscles to create a 3D effect.

· Use a setting spray to lock in your hard work. You wouldn’t want your fake muscles to smudge or wear off, would you?

And voila! You’ve got yourself a pair of killer, fake-toned arms that are ready to steal the show.

Trick #4: Fake Lounging (But Flexing)

Looking effortlessly good takes a lot of effort. This trick’s perfect when you’re out at the bar, watching the game, or pretending to be engrossed in a very exciting conversation about the weather. Here’s how you can fake lounging while flexing:

Fake Lounging (But Flexing)

· Find a comfortable spot. It’s a lounge, after all.

· Casually rest your elbow, on say, your knees (or a bartop if you’re standing). Nothing screams “I’m relaxed, “like a good old hunch.

· Now, here’s the secret sauce. You’re going to flex. Slightly. Nothing to Hulk-like, just enough to make those muscles come alive under your shirt.

· Pro tip: Practice your “relaxed” flex at home. It’s a bit like patting your head and rubbing your tummy. Odd at first, but you’ll get the hang of it.

Ah, the art of fake lounging. With a bit of practice, you’ll be the master of faux flexing, turning heads left, right, and center with those eye-catching, fake-toned arms.

Trick #5: Last Minute Pumping

So, the spotlight’s about to be on you and you want your fake muscles to radiate charisma, right? For those last-minute gatherings or impromptu selfies, there’s always the quick-fix exercise trick. If you just need a quick show, do some quick exercise to get your blood pumping. When your blood flows to your muscles, they become more defined.
