5 Easy Steps to Getting Your Sex Kitten On for Valentine’s Day!

Forget Hallmark’s cheese and that “Every Kiss Begins with Kay….”  Every kiss begins with you morphing into your naughty self for your sexy man on Valentine’s Day.  Put down the mascara and the red lipstick.  Yes, I know you’re thinking I’ve sniffed too much nail polish at this point. How dare I put aside siren red lipstick on Valentine’s Day? Well, think about it… Guess where red lipstick ends up when you give your man his present? Exactly.  And no man likes the taste of lipstick, nor do they like trying to bleach a lipstick stain off their pillow. And mascara?? I know, I know, but bad idea.  Rocky Raccoon just isn’t sexy.  Here’s what you should do:

1) Pull out all the stops in making your skin glow. Give yourself a mini-facial.  I have sensitive skin so I will cleanse and then apply a gentle exfoliator like Sonya Dakar Enzyme Peeling Cream, then a plumping, moisturizing mask like SK-II Facial Treatment Mask. I will follow with my regular moisturizing routine and primer.  By pre-beautifying my skin I won’t have to worry about wearing foundation that will leave an abstract painting on the pillow.

2) Your lips are the focal point here.  Start by exfoliating them, which will naturally plump them and give them a delicious, rosy tint.  I use Bite Beauty Fruit Lip Scrub, which is cherry -flavored deliciousness and leaves my lips soft and supple.  Then, I smooth on Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Plum, which hydrates and leaves sheer, subtle color.

3) Conceal what you need to, and then create a non-shimmery, natural bronzy glow with Benefit Hoola.  Give yourself a big smile in the mirror and apply Tarte Cheek Stain, a natural-looking gel blush, on the apples of your cheeks.

4) I know I told you to ditch the mascara. That may have been harsh. If you have a proven mascara that is waterproof and doesn’t flake, then  go for it. Personally, if I didn’t have my lash extensions, I would rather make my inner sex kitten purr by applying individual false eyelashes in the corners of my eyes.

5) Last step? Slather your body in Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Body Butter.  Everyone knows (even scientists!) that the more you smell like a dessert, the more your man goes crazy.
