This entry was posted on February 3, 2014.
Even if you don’t have a significant other, Valentine’s Day is a great day to get together with girlfriends for a night on the town – even if you choose to frequent some of the place couples are less likely to be. Chances are that most big cities will have some events planned for singles. Or, take a night out on the town with your sweetie. Whether you stay in or go out, it’s important to look your best. Try a few of these makeup tips to refresh your look and make you feel beautiful.
The classic smoky eye is an evening staple. It’s relatively easy to do, uses eyeshadow colors you probably already have, and gives your eyes an aura of intrigue and sex appeal. Best of all, depending on your eye color, you can change out the shade of eye shadow to really emphasize the natural beauty of your eyes. Those with blue eyes should choose gold toned shadows, those with green eyes should choose brown toned shadows, and those with dark eyes should choose charcoal shadows. You’ll need three shades of the same color of eye shadow: one light, one mid-toned, and one dark. Cover your entire eyelid up to the brow bone with the lightest colored shadow. Use the mid-toned shadow in the crease. Blend well using an eye shadow brush. Line the eye close to the lash base with the darkest shade, and underneath just in the corners. Blend and clean up edges using a brush. You’ve got a sexy, smoky eye look.
If you’re playing down the eyes, it’s time to play up the lips. Choose a bold color you’ve never used before, and be sure to get a matching liner. Classic red is always a show-stopper, and with so many red tones, it’s easy to find one that will work with your skin tone. Line lips well to prevent smudging and create a base for the color. If you’re choosing a bold color, consider investing in teeth whitening treatments if necessary.
Invest in some mink eyelashes to truly take your look to the next level. These beautiful, natural looking lashes will draw attention to your eyes and brighten your whole look. They’re easy to apply, and special holiday evenings throughout the year demand special treatment. Enjoy your Valentine’s Day looking your best.
