3 Make-Up Tips For Valentine’s Day

For those of you off on dates in the next few days, here are some great tips to make sure you look your absolute best for your Valentine!

Nude lip rather than red..

When you think Valentine’s Day make-up, you immediately think red lips. However, if you’re going out on a date with your Valentine I feel a nude lip will work so much better. Nude lips are a lot sexier and for those of you out for a meal, a red lip would be too much maintenance, having to reapply between courses and having to constantly check to make sure it hasn’t transferred onto your teeth! Here are some nudes perfect for Valentine’s Day:

Charlotte Tilbury – Nude Kate – £23

Illamasqua – Starkers – £19.50

NYX – Soft Spoken – £6.50

Eyeliner is a must..

Wearing a winged liner or even a smudged liner will help you achieve a very sultry look. The eyeliner will define your eyes and make them stand out. Your date won’t be able to help but notice what beautiful eyes you have! And by having a nude lip there will be no focus taken away from them. Below are some of my favourite eyeliners:

Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel – 77

Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘n’ Kohl – Bedroom Black – £19

Illamasqua Gel Liner – Infinity – £20

Dewy skin over matte..

When it comes to your complexion on Valentine’s Day you definitely want to keep it dewy. Firstly, you don’t want to look caked because no one finds that attractive. And secondly, a dewy glow will look more natural, sexy and fresh. So be sure to use a luminizing primer/foundation and a cream or liquid highlighter. Once finishing your make-up look make sure you use a setting spray to soak up any excess powder on the face that may be making you appear matte and cakey. I will list some must haves for dewy skin below:

L’oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer – £9.99

Tom Ford – Shade and Illuminate – £56

MAC – Fix + Spray – £17.50
