It`s date number 6 and you know it`s going down tonight—whether it`s a sure thing or you see the need to send some less-than-obvious signals, tantalise him and up your confidence instantly by lacquering on a decadently juicy red lip and sultry bedroom eyes with lashings of mascara.
LIGHT MY FIRE
When your relationship starts slipping into the doldrums and dates have boiled down to microwave dinners in front of the TV, try spicing things up a little: put on a slinky dress and amp up your makeup to project a vivacious sexiness: eyes burnished in metallic silver and flushed cheeks for a risqué allure.
The key element for reeling him in is not coming off as an obsessive desperado or try-hard, a sure-fire way of sending the poor guy running in the opposite direction. Be yourself and look effortlessly demure—pile on tinted moisturiser, mascara, a smidge of blush and berry-hued gloss accented with heaps of understated confidence.
PLAY HARD TO GET
The ultimate age-old dating strategy: keep `em begging for more. Playing hard to get piques a man`s deep psychological need to pursue what he can`t get and indulges him in the thrill of the chase. Tempt him with ultrakissable deep plum lips, glittery eyeshadow and a blasé cool that`ll drive him up the wall.
It`s been too many dates and too few kisses, and you`re raring to sink your paws into him. Snag him and keep him hooked with come-hither tresses, loads of eye-popping gunmetal-grey eyeshadow and a wine-stained pout, all paired with bronzer swept over an exposed shoulder that begs to be kissed.
BREAKING THE ICE
Getting things going during a date can get a little awkward, so take the reigns and show him you mean business: up the flirt factor with a smouldering smoky black eye and a sheen of pink gloss offset against a hot mess of big, sexy waves for that irresistibly provocative appeal.
