If you’re heading to a plush bar for champagne cocktails followed by a spot of fine dining at an exquisite establishment then opt for a beauty look that will keep him captivated all night long. A bold red lip and cat eye liner is simple yet highly glamorous. Don’t forget to dress up the nails too.

Romantic Night In

So you’ve decided to stay in and enjoy an intimate evening with your loved one but that doesn’t mean you can rock up in your PJs and slippers, as comfy as they are. Make a special effort with a subtly sexy lace cami in a passionate red shade and skinny jeans that show off your figure beautifully, leaving just enough to the imagination.
