Its officially the most romantic day of the year and if youre lucky enough to be treated to a fancy date, you want to look as good as possible for your man. Sunkissed is here to talk you through the outfit, the makeup, and of course, the tan!
The first thing we tend to think of when going on a date is - What am I going to wear? Assuming a romantic evening dinner is on the cards, you want to look both glamourous and sophisticated. The good news is you can get the perfect look with lots of different outfits - including trousers, if youre not a dress or skirt enthusiast!
If dresses are your thing, you cant beat Lipsy for variety and
we especially love this lace dress. A different take on the
classic LBD with a flash of colour, plus the off-shoulder style
makes it super sexy.
Cute and pretty are equally as
gorgeous as sexy and sultry, so we
suggest a skirt combo if you want to
go more flirty than full-on. This floral
skirt from Topshop is ideal for
Valentine's Day, and we'd team it with
this jacquard crop top, also from
Proving you can look just as stunning in trousers as a dress, we recommend for these jacquard tube trousers from Miss Selfridge, paired with a sophisticated leather-look tee. We love the Maaria Leather Tee in burgundy from Missguided.
When it comes to your makeup, practice makes perfect and one of the best ways to help you fine-tune your skills is to watch tutorials. If you want to go for gorgeous glamour, our Perfect Party look tutorial shows you how to create a makeup look using the Complete Mini Bronze Compact, which holds everything youll need. If you want to keep your makeup soft and natural - but still ultra feminine - take a look at our Natural, Beautiful tutorial, using the Luxury Bronze Midi Compact. Our Natural Makeup for Darker Skin look tutorial uses the Sunkissed Radiance Compact and the Jumbo Bronzing Pearls.

Remember ladies, its all about how you apply your makeup, not how much you put on! In second place came the dreaded overpowering fake tan smell, which could seem tricky on Valentines Day when you want to look your best with a gorgeous glow. But Sunkissed has the answer - a fabulous tan WITHOUT the boyfriend-repelling smell! Our tans are specially formulated to banish the biscuity self-tan smell and instead leaves behind a feel-good coconut scent that your man wont be able to resist ;)
