11 Tips for Looking Great in Lingerie this Valentine’s Day
Guest Post- Cindy Prosser
Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching – are you ready to look and feel your best? A great start is pampering yourself with lingerie that makes you feel sexy. Next step? Pamper your body from head to toe.
Here are some of our favorite tips for looking great in your lingerie this Valentine’s Day:
Buy something that’s comfortable….and sexy. Too many ladies focus on getting lingerie only for the appearance. Sure, the look of it matters but you want to make sure you’re comfortable in it too – especially if you plan on wearing it again.
Don’t listen to the magazines. Sure, you can flip through pages and pages of the latest styles of lingerie, but what’s most important is that you look and feel good in a garment. Choose a style that’s suited for your body and a color that you love. Here are a few of our favorites:
Negligee – A negligee in any color is sexy and easily hides your tummy or behind while showing off other areas. Just a hint, ladies…dark colors are slimming and guys love black.
Camisole – If you want to hide your stomach, choose a camisole that shows off your neckline and cleavage instead. These are not only extremely comfortable, but flattering too!
Silk robe – If you’re not completely comfortable with skimpy lingerie, don’t worry! A silk robe is a sensual way to cover up. The fabric will feel great against your skin, and you can always make use of this in the future as something you wear while doing hair and makeup before a night out.
Bronze yourself. A powder bronzer is a great way to enhance your curves and give your face a bit more color. You can buy it in a shade that matches your skin tone, with or without shimmer. For an added touch (while still looking natural), dab on a bit of light pink lip gloss.
Exfoliate and moisturize. What makes lingerie look even sexier? Smooth, satiny skin to go with it. You can purchase sugar scrubs in a variety of different scents, whether you’re looking for floral or fruity. Or, make your own with 2 parts brown sugar, 1 part honey. Before you use any product, be sure to test it on a small area of skin to make sure there won’t be a reaction. After exfoliating, choose your favorite lotion and moisturize your body from head to toe.
Treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure. You don’t have to go out to a fancy spa…just treat yourself at home and glam up those fingers and toes. It’s just another tiny way to make you feel even more beautiful.
Workout the day of Valentine’s Day. Exercising for 30 minutes or more will make your muscles look leaner and more toned for a few hours afterward.
Give yourself a facial. Even if your face is the last thing your special someone is focused on, it doesn’t hurt to give it a little extra TLC. Spring for an exfoliating face scrub or create your own by mixing oatmeal with honey or olive oil. Leave it on for 15 minutes and your face will feel refreshed and smooth to the touch.
Put your hair up. Nothing is more enticing than a sexy updo. Pull your hair up gently to one side and let a few strands fall around your face.
These are just a few of the many ways to look your best on Valentine’s Day – but can be used any time of the year! Take them into consideration next time you’re out shopping for your special evening.
