Yes, it’s that time of year again where half the population gets ultra swoon-y about that loved up day, and the other half wish it would stop existing forever. Here at the Sunescape HQ, we love to inject a bit of romance into our daily lives, whether we’re singing Single Ladies by Beyoncé, or All of Me by John Legend, and we LOOOVE going all out in red and pink for the day (these colours look perfect with a tan we might add). Here are our tips to having the ultimate Valentines Day…

Mix a bit of Red into your outfit. Studies show that when you wear red, you get more attention. While we’re not gunning for cute boy’s attention 24/7, if you’re looking to nab the perfect boy or girl for your Valentines date night, add a touch (or a lot) of red into your day-to-day ensemble. Watch them fall to their knees…grease - valentines date

Pick the perfect location by the sea. The peace and quiet, the sea breeze, and a cutie on your arm, we think ocean-side is the one and only way to do Valentines Day this year. Grab a blanket for two and have a makeshift picnic by the sea. Strawberries and chocolate: essential.

Ensure you’ve got the perfect pout. Get your Cher from Clueless on and make sure your makeup and outfit is immaculate for the lovey day. We always opt for a vibrant red or cool-toned fuchsia on our lips to make our bronzed skin pop, and of course look ultimately kissable 😉

Girls night out, or one-on-one with the BF. Picking between a bit of Sex and the City, and The Notebook can be very hard, but it might say a lot about how you want to spend Valentines Day. Hopefully, your date is not as dramatic as Allie and Noah’s, or as crazy as Carrie’s, but however you’re rocking that Valentines Day lipstick and tan combo, we know you’ll be having the time of your life!


Get that tan on girl. Obviously Valentines Day is not Valentin’s Day without a rocking tan. If you’re an organised gal, go for our professional spray tan solution for that flawless airbrushed look that won’t let you down. If you’re like the rest of us, and totally forgot about Valentines Day, we recommend tanning up with our Instant Self-Tan Mousse or Illuminating Body Tint for the luminous glow the day-of.

What will you be doing this Valentine’s Day…?
