When love is in the air and you want to get all dolled up for your special someone and you purchase that sexy outfit and a pair of killer heels, the only way you can complete your perfect get-up is with an equally romantic makeup look. From a sultry red lip to a blossoming pink cheek these are a few Valentine’s Day makeup looks and ideas that will have your special someone falling in love with you all over again.
The Feminine Glow
Your daily beauty regiment will go a long way to bring out your natural youthful glow and give you soft smooth skin which needs the minimal makeup. Begin by creating a base, apply a foundation that is close to your natural skin tone and evenly blend it into your skin. Always remember to exfoliate at least twice a week and moisturize. Keep your blush to a minimum so that your eyes become the highlight of the show by using a soft pink gently across the apples of your cheeks.
Pink is the color most associated with femininity and it seems fitting for this special occasion. Prep your eyes by using an eyeshadow primer as your base (one that is close to your skin tone), this helps your eye makeup last longer and also makes it easier to remove. Next use a neutral eyeshadow just under your brow on the bone as a highlight. Follow this with a light pink that suits your complexion over your lid up to your crease.
Taking a glitter shadow (silver) use it like you would eyeliner and line your lids, both top and bottom, into the corner of your eye. Then using a darken pink go over your eye again up to the crease but not covering the silver liner. Use a blending brush to blend all the colors for a subtle pretty eye, but wait, the look is not complete yet. Choose a purple shadow and blend it into the outer corner of your lid for a subtle cat’s eye and line the outer corner of you lower lid with this shade as well. For the perfect ‘come hither’ appeal accentuate your lashes with a coat of black mascara. Finish the look with a thin sweep of black eyeliner over the silver so that it is just visible.
Let your lips look soft and luscious with a sheer gloss or even a light pink, don’t overdo it or you could end up looking like cotton candy. This last step will complete your Valentine’s Day look. Red lips would not go well with this particular look but if you plan on an intimate dinner you could pair a great red with simple black eyeliner on your top and bottom lid (cream liner for the bottom and liquid for the top) and a light dusting of a rosy hued blush.
