Dating’s hard enough, but not knowing what you’re overall look will be for that elusive first meeting can sometimes pose a challenge, which is why I believe in planning your clothing down to the beauty products you’ll use to make yourself look your absolute best from head to toe.

Vanessa Williams can quickly transition this cocktail number from the red carpet to an intimate dinner with her bo (or in the case of some of you and me – your “propsective bo.”) An intimate dinner outfit such as this calls for first, a product that will make her curly mane look moisturized and healthy which is what Kinky-Curly Spiral Spritz ($12, is known for. In fact, Kinky-Curly is a styling product that is specifically made for wavy and fine hair. The ingredient, Vitamin B-5 adds moisture while knocking out that frizz. What more could you ask for in a hair product made just for your hair?

TIP: From Kinky-Curly: Use SPIRAL SPRITZ to reactivate your style when you do not wish to re-wet and re-style your hair with the Curling Custard. Spray lightly when using to refresh your style. A little goes a long way!

If you plan on revealing as much skin as seen here, then I suggest you nip the “ash” right in the bud. What’s more embarassing then realizing that your checklist for the evening completely missed your elbows, heels and feet? Just think, if you noticed your dry skin, your date probably did too, so do yourself a favor and invest in the Rare Love Balm, sold at Fred Segals for $40. It’s an emollient body treatment rich in cocoa butter and coconut oil. Rare Love Balm gives your body that natural glow while it nurtures your skin, lips and fingertips. Who knows, if things go well on date night you could also use this balm to get or give a sensual massage. Wow, I’ll have two of those!
