For A Radiant, Glowing Complexion for Lunch with Girlfriends, Sue Devitt suggests: 

When you want to look sweet rather than sultry, the best way to do it is to use a peach or coral hue on your cheeks and keep the rest simple.

  • Prep skin with a light foundation like Sue Devitt Triple C-Weed Whipped Foundation to even out your skin tone and cover up and imperfections.

  • To achieve a natural flush, apply Sue Devitt Gel-to-Powder Blush in Malay Reef to the apples of your cheeks.

  • Finish the look with a few generous coats of Sue Devitt Luxury Lash Mascara in Black Chocolate to add a sexy yet sophisticated edge.
  • Finally, to pull the look together slick on a nude gloss like Sue Devitt Lip Enhancing Gloss in Golden Triangle. Who knew sweet could look so sexy!

For Smoldering Eyes for A Night Out, Sue Devitt suggests:

For this sexy makeup look, keep the focal point on the eyes.

  • Start off by lining the top and bottom lash lines with Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencil in Kenya.
  • Using the smudger end of the pencil, blend the color up and out to create a bold smoky eye.
  • To intensify the look even more, apply a bronze-hued eyeshadow like Sue Devitt Silky Sheen Eyeshadow in Burma to your entire eyelid.
  • Amp up the wow-factor by applying the bronze shadow into your lower lash line as well.
  • Finish off the look by coating your lashes with Sue Devitt Lash Intensifier Treatment & Lengthening Mascara to create lush, look-at-me lashes that demand attention.  Your date won’t know what hit him!
