Valentine's day is fast approaching and, whether you are planning to celebrate with a romantic dinner, dance the night away with your best friends or stay in with an old movie, the holiday is a great excuse to work a little bit of romance into your beauty look. Follow our five top tips below for a look that will warm even the coldest of hearts.
1. Glowing skin
If you're planning to stay on the dance floor until the early hours, then your skin could start to look a little tired towards the end of the night. Prevent this by using a bb cream to create a glowing, even complexion which will keep you looking fresh-faced all night long.
2. Rosy cheeks
Ensure that your look also includes pink, rosy cheeks. Sweep a subtle amount of pink blush along the contours of your cheeks for a romantic rosy glow. If you want to add warmth to your face, subtly sweep bronzer across your forehead and down the bridge of your nose.
3. Wide eyes
Big, bright eyes are another great way to get a pretty and natural look. Choose a mascara that separates and defines your lashes. This will open up your peepers and create an irresistible stare. Remember not to overcomplicate your look: if you're going for a bold lip, keep your eye makeup to a minimum.
4. Red lips
Red lips are a beauty classic, and an absolute must for a romantic beauty look. Not only is red the color of love and passion, but it is also a glamorous shade which will give your look an old school, retro edge. Wear your red lipstick with a matte finish to keep your look bang on trend and prep your lips with a lip liner so that the color lasts all night long.
5. Matching nails
If you're doing red lipstick, why not coordinate your look by matching your nail polish to your lipstick ? A red manicure is a great mood lifter and it's satisfying knowing that you've been organised enough to create a matching look.
So there you have it, five top tips for a killer beauty look for Valentine's day, or any time you want to add a little romance to your makeup!
