Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and we are sure you have made big plans for the special day. Whether you intend to spend the day out with your sweetheart, or go for a candle-light dinner, we have some great makeup tips that will make him go weak in the knees. If you want him to fall head over heels in love with you all over again, here are three looks for you to try.
A Mushy, Day Look
If you are not planning on a fancy restaurant dinner, and simple going to spend a fun day in the outdoors with your boyfriend or husband, you obviously cannot wear too much makeup. A natural look would go best for a day out. But you can still look your glamorous best! Here is how:
No matter what makeup you use, remember that a healthy and natural glow is what you must aim for. For this, keep it to basic minimum. Do not overdo your makeup at any point.
Use a tinted moisturiser that is absorbed well by the skin to give you an even base.
Conceal the imperfections with a foundation that matches your complexion perfectly.
Simply swipe coral, petal pink or buttercup coloured eyeshadows defined with a contrast coloured liner.
Go for a light blush for the flushed cheeks look, and wear a super shiny subtle coloured lip gloss in pinks or coral.
For the hair, you can have soft curls that will go very well with this simple and romantic look. Or you could also try a fish plait with heart-shaped clips and rubber bands.
Experiment with nail extensions and nail art like hearts, flowers, or even your partner’s name.
A Dream Dinner Date Look
If he is planning to take you out for a dreamy candle-light dinner date, make sure you look enchanting and ultra-glamorous.
Go for smokey eyes with lots of kohl, mascara, a thick liner and strong, filled-in brows.
Balance off the heavily played eyes with neutral lips in bronze, bubble gum or peach.
Use a highlighter to make sure your face shines dewy-fresh.
For a sophisticated look go for hair tied up or let loose in romantic curls. Make sure your hair is well dried to get the best look. A sleek pony tail can also look very classy with a great wet-look hair gel.
For your nails, choose a white base with red graffiti- mix of hearts, kisses or even “mwah” written over it.
A “Shall We Dance” Look
If you are partying with your friends, choose a young, vibrant, feminine and sexy look to shine in the crowd and make him dance to your tunes. With this playful look, you can invite him for a quick shake-a-leg session anytime!
Get a doe-eyed look by using two eye shadows, not contrasting but shades of the same colour. Apply the lighter shade on top of the eyelid and deep set the eyes with the darker colour.
Define your eyes well with a thin liner in the front and thicker in the end. Add some glitter on it for an enticing shine.
Bright lips go perfectly well with this bold look.
With the nail-art too, you can experiment a lot in this look! Get Swarovski crystals studded on your nails, or go for photo nail-art and get his picture painted on your nails. This, in fact the ultimate trick to make him go crazy for you!
To complete this look, highlight your hair in bold red and blonde. Blow-dried fringes or curls would look lovely, especially with the red streaks.
