Hot Date Night Fixes
Go from work to sexy in 60 seconds.
Okay, you’ve got a hot date on aweek night. You don’t have hours to get ready because you’re meeting your date right after work. What to do? Dimitri James, celebrity makeup artist and founder of Skinn Cosmetics, shares his tips on how to go from day to date in a few easy steps–your man won’t know that you didn’t spend hours primping for him.
The perfect date look is that little black or dark gray dress. Whether it’s low cut and structured or a silky shift–this is the perfect dress to wear to the office under a sweater or jacket with a pair of boots.

When the clock strikes 5 p.m., lose a few layers for a sexier look, and trade the boots for stilettos.

Your make up can also convert from simple to sexy on 60 seconds simply by doing the following:
First, powder your skin well with a very fine face powder and then lightly dust your complexion with a fine illuminating powder (available from most department and drugstore brands). This double layering of matte and illuminating powders will result in a naturally smooth and glowing finish that will respond well to candlelight. Next, blush your cheeks with an iridescent pink blush.

Go ahead and brush the same pink blush over your eye lid on top of your other eye shadow. This will instantly make your eyes look sexy and softly focused. Extend your black eye liner past the corner on your upper lid as to create a sexy bat-wing look.

Then, apply a little soft blue eye liner from a shade of silver periwinkle to a dark indigo (whichever you like best) in the lower inner tear rim or your lower eye lid.

Finally, apply a skin illuminating lotion or powder to your shoulders, arms and legs. The subtle glow will not only make you feel and look sexier; but the light reflecting off your skin will flirt for you all night long.
