Every woman wants a flawless complexion and foundation is one of the best ways to achieve this look. You should choose a foundation that is only slightly lighter than your natural skin color. And use a large soft brush to apply the bronzer to your face and lightly dust it on.

If you want a sultrier look, you can lightly spritz a moisturizing spray over your face once your makeup is fully applied. You can even carry a mini spray in your purse to reapply during the evening to maintain your super sexy look!

You might not be a fan of curling your lashes, but it does make your lashes look extra sexy. It’s easier than you think and can be perfected with some practice. Using a quality eyelash curler, gently pinch your lashes at the roots and slightly slide along the length, squeezing with a pulse-like motion. Then apply your favorite mascara by wiggling the wand back and forth at the roots of your lashes. Then pull the wand straight up along the length. If you want to elongate and separate your lashes, you should apply three coats. But don’t forget to comb the mascara through while it’s still wet with a clean brush. And for a super sexy look for Valentine’s Day, you can opt for colorful or sparkly mascara.
