Setting the Mood: Romantic Make Up For Valentine's Day

 

Soft, pretty make up that’s date-tastic is an absolute must on Cupid’s holiday. Whether you are planning on an intimate dinner for two or a crazy night out, your V-Day face should combine subtle sparkle and warm, sensual colors. Get glowing with golden bronze shimmer and kissable glossy red lips, for a romantic look on Valentine’s Day that will set the mood!


Valentine's Day - Eyes
Begin with a longwearing base, such as Crème Gel Liner in Golden Orbit. The creamy texture adheres to lids easily, making it perfect to double as a shadow! Using the Crème/Liner Brush spread Golden Orbit over the entire lid. Next, use the same brush to apply the rosy champagne hued Piazza Cangiante Dimensional Eyeshadow, placing just in the inner corner of the eye (on the top and bottom). This will open up the inner eye area, making the eyes appear more awake, bigger and brighter!

For a sheer touch of shadow that can be applied wet or dry, try the Ironic shade (a cork brown) of our Demi Matte Cangiante Eyeshadow. Build dimension within the crease of the lid with the #18 Small Eyeshadow Brush, and then drag under the lower lash line on the outside edge, elongating the eye.

Using Trio Eyeshadow in Forever (the #1 shade) and the #18 Brush, apply color to the brow bone to produce a gentle highlight. Our three-in-one compact contains a palette of three shadows – soft shimmer, demi-matte, and matte, which mesh together beautifully and work wonders on all skin tones.

Valentine's Day - Lashes

To really draw out the eyes, deepen along the lower lash line with the Duo Eye Pencil in Brown Orofila/Golden Moss. Run this under lashes gently to just about the halfway point of the eye. Two shades in one generously sized pencil blend allow you to blend and smudge for the ultimate smokiness!

Curl lashes using the Mini Lash Curler to snag every little hair! The unique design is small enough to help you curl lashes in sections, keeping the curler a proper distance from the root.
For added pop, apply Ardell Faires to the top lash line, and blend together your natural lashes with the falsies by applying a coat of Lush Length Mascara. The rich, innovative formula envelops lashes while adding volume and extending length. Top off with a thin line of black liner to conceal the lash band, such as Duo Pencil in Jet Black/London Glimmer.

Valentine's Day - Face

A touch of bronzer will warm things up and contour the features of your face. Using La Riviera Sun Matte Bronzer in Sun Kissed, form a ‘3’ on the side of your face, starting with the sides of your forehead, and under the cheekbones to the jawline. Try the #27 Deluxe Blush Brush for easy application! The firm, medium-sized brush head deposits powder smoothly to shape and define. Finish up with a highlight on the uppermost area of your cheeks, dabbing a little gold glimmer on with the #27 Brush will give you a pretty ‘in love’ glow! La Bella Luce Highlighter in Patina has luminescent pearls that reflect light to brighten any complexion!

Valentine's Day - Lips

Line the lips with Duo Lip Pencil in Wine/Rosewood and apply Thinstick Lipstick in London using the #36 Travel Lip Brush. Super staying power to survive kisses, meets vivid pigmentation, in this waterproof lipstick that nourishes with Vitamin E.

Using the red color from the Lovisco Lip Palette and the #36 Brush, apply generously for high shine! The soft, non-sticky texture allows color to be smoothly applied, leaving behind a glistening, watery effect on the lips.
