Simple and Sexy V-Day!
Simple and Sexy V-Day!
This year Valentine’s Day falls during the week, on a Tuesday. Not as convenient as the
weekend, but there is still time to sex(y) it up with your hubby or significant other. I, for one,
enjoy the opportunity to tap into the “bad girl” in me and get creative. But since I work full-time
and have children, I don’t have time for a dreamy night at a swanky bar downtown followed by
dinner at LAWRY’S, then off to the honeymoon suite for some V-Day loving! My children are
school aged, so I’ve got to make the best out of what I’ve got at home.
There are some simple, yet sexy things that you can do to spice up the day from dusk to dawn.
Bet on black
Black is sexy and simple. Lace, cut outs and soft-flowing fabrics instantaneously boost sex
appeal. Start off the day by sliding into some sexy, lacy black unmentionables. Let your hubby
see you prance around, move slow and smile. Give him encouragement, via text, that it will be
well worth the wait.
Wear a black dress or pant suit to work. Keep your makeup simple. But go for a look that can
easily be changed into a night look. Be sure to text sweet nothings to your man throughout the
After the children are in bed, a simple silk slip gown or bralette and panties are sexy and
inviting. Moisturize with oil and your favorite fragrance; whether that be essential oils or
perfumes. You can use strobe cream or any cream illuminating product all over to add shimmer like glow to your skin.
Simple Sexy Makeup
Whether you’re building on makeup from earlier in the day or starting with a fresh face, keep it simple. Exaggerated winged liner, a little blush and bold lips will do the trick.
Use Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner to create the wing. You can apply shadow if you have time. Keep it natural and nude
Glitter is all the rage in makeup now days. Add sparkle to your look by lining your lips with lip liner, apply the lip color, then cover with glitter. This looks was created with MAC’s lip pencil in Magenta, Girl About Town lipstick, then covered with glitter from M.U.M. Cherry
Sultry Red Lips
Pop on your best red! This look was created with Lancôme’s (discontinued)Classic Red lipstick. A similar color and formula by Lancôme is their L’Absolu Rouge Hydrating Shaping Lipcolor in Rouge Chic (Cream)
Dallas, Texas native, Cormeshia Carson Batty, began a romance with fashion as a plus-size child, remaking off-the-rack garments into off-the-chart fashions. It’s been her lifelong dream to become editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine—a dream that’s not so far from reality.
It’s said that when a women changes her hair, she’s changing her life. For Batty, the cliché rings true. As motherhood approached, something in Batty shifted. She wanted to be the best, most wholesome mother she could be from head to toe—so she shaved her head as a signal of a new beginning. Now, as a mother of two, that bold gesture became a continuum of her fashion journey.
From a low-fade, to an afro and now, dreadlocks, Batty has incorporated culture, hair fashion and makeup research and application into her writing and come full circle as a lifestyle writer. Today, her position on shoes, clothes, makeup, accessories, hairstyles, weight loss and lifestyle is among the most insightful, witty and unique advice of its kind. And now, she’s sharing it with the world!
