A Step-By-Step Tutorial On How To Achieve The Perfect Valentines Day Makeup Look
-Foundation and concealer
Before you apply any makeup, make sure that your face is clean and that you apply base so that your makeup will last longer. On this romantic holiday, you want to have perfect radiant skin not only to impress your Valentine, but to also look and feel your best. When you are applying foundation, make sure that you go in a downward stroke, because the hair on your face is facing down. By applying your foundation in a downward stroke, it will appear more smooth and natural. With your concealer, make sure to conceal all of your imperfections and of course any eye bags. Once your skin is completely flawless, make sure that you apply press powder all over your face and neck so that the foundation and concealer doesn’t slide around and to create a pretty matte look.
Your eyebrows may not seem like such a big deal, but it’s actually one of the most stressed out part of the face. Make sure that the eyeliner or eye shadow you use on your eyebrows is three shades lighter than your hair so that it’ll soften your entire face.
The eyes are one of the first things people look at the moment they first glance at a person, which is why you need to make sure that your eyes are perfect. First, apply a light pink, champagne, or neutral eye shadow all over your lids and brow, then apply a slightly darker and complimentary eye shadow on your lid to the crease. Afterwards, apply a brown, gray, deep plum, or other deep shade of eye shadow in your crease and on the edges of your crease. Make sure that you apply eyeliner to line your eyes and demi lashes to make your eyes appear more romantic looking, but avoid black as it can look to harsh. A soft brown is a usually a good choice. Line your water line with a light eyeliner, and then make sure to carefully mix the eyeshades together. Never mix the eyeshades too much because it will end up looking a bit muddy and messy.
With your lips, consider wearing a light red lipstick or a sheer red instead of a strong red, as too right of a red can make you look a bit strong. Or, try a pretty berry pink shade. After you apply your lipstick, apply a little bit of shimmer on the top and bottom part of your lips, for a nice pout.
if you want to look and feel your best on this romantic holiday, try going soft and easy with your makeup look, as it’ll make you appear even more beautiful and romantic.
