Get Ready to Wow this Valentine’s Day
Whatever you’re doing this Valentine’s Day get the right make up look to suit every occasion. Here’s how:
If you’re heading to a plush restaurant where the ambience is perfectly romantic then you need a makeup look that looks completely seductive under dimmed lights.
Step 1 – Create subtle, sexy and sophisticated eyes with Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. The mix of neutral and dramatic shades in a variety of finishes means you can get the right eye look for every outfit.
Step 2 - If you’re heading out straight from the office then revive your complexion and boost skin’s luminosty with Benefit’s Fine-One-One Sheer Brightening Colour. The smooth and creamy highlighter blends easily into the skin to give you instant lift, shape and pop. You can also use on lips too.
Step 3 – As the rest of you face is kept minimal, vamp up your pout with a gorgeous red lip that is bound to make heads turn.
On your first date make sure all eyes are on you.
Step 1 - Create doll-like eyes to keep your date hooked all night long. Use a pair of falsies or a lengthening, volumising and curling mascara that adds lashings and lashings of drama to make your peepers pop. Accentuate the shape of your eyes with a cat-like flick using Bobbi Browns Gel Eyeliner.
Step 2 – As your eyes will take centre stage give your cheeks a pinch-perfect flush of colour with Lancome Blush Subtil Classic Blusher and add just a hint of colour to the lips using Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick.
Achieve a glam-gorgeous look that is subtle yet effective for your cosy nights in.
Step 2 – Use a tinted moisturiser that gives you enough coverage to even out the skin tone and conceal any blemishes.
Step 3 - Apply a bronzer to give a natural golden glow. Instead of applying all over the face dust use a bronzer to sculpt the contours of your face – the forehead, cheekbones, bridge of the nose and the chin. For extra definition add a light dusting to the corners of the eye socket. Don’t forget to apply to the neck, chest and decolletage so that the colouring looks even from face downwards.
Step 4 - Opt for a barely-there nude lip or add just a hint of colour with Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick
Out with the Girls
If you’re going out with the girls then have fun with your make up and experiment with bright, bold colours on the eye or vibrant lip colours. Which ever you choose though don’t forget two golden rules:
1) Set your make up with Urban Decay’s All-Nighter Setting Sprays. You know that if you’re with the girls you’ll end up dancing the night away.
2) Keep Guerlain’s Midnight Secret Late Night Recovery Treatment by your bed. This miracle skincare wonder perks up tired and stressed skin. Simply smooth it on before you go to bed and wake up with refreshed, hydrated, clearer, and invigorated skin.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
