Red lips often get a bad date night rep (Will he still kiss me?!), but we think they're a totally sexy way to show off your confidence. The key? Keep it matte and kissable.

4. Smokin' lady

Tousled beach waves and a smoky eye scream "I'm sexy and you'd better know it" in the best of ways. Bonus points if you pair them with bold brows and a neutral lip.

5. Natural beauty

Think neutral makeup is too blah? Think again. The natural look lets your true beauty shine through and lets your face breathe a bit. Plus, guys love it when a gal's confident enough to rock the minimal makeup look.

6. The cat's meow

Want to ensure a good night? Say "come hither" with a subtle cat eye. Skip the heavy lines and opt for a small flick of liquid liner. The subtler, the sexier.

7. You glow, girl

Get glowing with luminescent skin, toned down eyes and a glossy lip. Since it's date night, a little bit of a natural "love glow" will only amp up the sexy factor.

Going to a fancy event for date night? Pull out all the stops, lady. A smoky eye paired with a pretty lip (no hot pinks or reds, though, please) and bronzed skin can make you stand out from the crowd.
