Valentine’s Day is less than a month away. I don’t know about you, but I have been searching for the perfect look for a night out with my hubby. I want everything to be right, from my outfit to my makeup. Since I love to share my addiction with others I thought I’d post some great makeup looks that I’ve found.
I love a really dramatic, color-filled eye. You can use your eyeshadow to not only compliment and bring out those gorgeous eyes of yours, but you can also bring out different colors in your outfit. Have fun with it and try different things such as glitter or heart-shapes. The sky is the limit. If I am going to try a design or combination that I’ve never done before, I try and perfect it ahead of time. The last thing I want is to make us late for dinner or show up with my makeup looking like I just came from performing at the circus.
I love a good red or pink lip for Valentine’s day. Choose your color based on your look for the evening and what color you like best. When I first started wearing lipstick I would never wear red. I just didn’t like the way the color looked on me. It took me a while to find the right shade for me. I found that darker reds look best with my skin tone. Pink is my absolute favorite color, however, I can’t just put any shade of pink on my lips. I’ve found that the best shade for me is more of a salmon color.
The first time that I found out how great a salmon-colored lipstick on me was the night of my senior prom. My mommy did my makeup and she put a chestnut lip liner pencil on my lips and a salmon colored lipgloss. It was gorgeous. I’ve loved the color ever since.
Makeup Is Your Art
Think of makeup as your art. Do what you want and what makes you happy. If you want long, dramatic eyelashes then do it. If you want to wear a bright red lip, then pucker up and put that lipstick on. This is your creation and you have to do what makes you happy. What makes you look in the mirror and smile?
What looks do you have planned for Valentine’s Day? Or, are you still looking for ideas? I would love for you to share your Valentine’s Day looks with me!
