Love is in the air and at Lookfantastic we want you to look your best whether it be your first Valentine’s together, a 5 year streak or simply a date that you’ve been holding back on taking.
Because we’re all different and we have our different styles, instead of just giving you one look that will have us all walking out the same (awkward), we thought we would spoil you with 3 top make up looks, complete with a few hints and tips for the big night.
The Casual Date
Whether it be that you’re a laid back individual or maybe its that you’re now in that comfortable place with your loved one, the Casual Date look is something simple, flawless and beautiful. Easy enough for anyone to pull off.
Keep it quick and easy with a tinted moisturizer like the Rodial BB Venom Skin Tint, a multi tasking cream that provides you with flawless coverage as well as the marvelous benefits of a a beauty balm.
Combine all of your contouring products into one handy product with the Benefit Fine One One. Perfect for blending together these shades also work individually to highlight, contour and add colour to your cheeks.
If you’re not into having a full on glam look but still want to feel like you’re wearing something then the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. With 6 neutral, matte shades that can give you the option to add some colour and definition to your eyes without looking too over the top.
Don’t just make your face look pretty, keep nails looking groomed and effortlessly pretty with an Essie polish in All Tied Up. A sheer pink with iridescent properties, this is the perfect shade for the first hand hold.
Romantic Meal For Two
It’s the sit down dinner, the last thing you want to be worrying about is your make up when you’re tackling pasta sauce in a new dress. So let’s get it right from start to finish including the right perfume to make you smell amazing and set the mood.
For this date you’re going to only have each other to look and talk to, so mesmerize them with a set of smokey eyes from the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. We recommend using a set of 4 colours (from inside out use Booty Call, Tease, Pistol and Busted)
To match your deep smokey eye give yourself a striking set of lashes with the Benefit They’re Real! Mascara. Pretty much one of the best mascaras out there at the moment, you’ll find yourself in awe of how long, full and gorgeous your eyes look with this intense mascara.
You pretty much can’t go wrong with a set of well polished red nails, with Rococo Nail Apparel in Pop Culture you get the perfect mix of vixen red with girly pink to make a statement on your date.
Last of all give yourself a spritz of a gorgeous fragrance like Jimmy Choo Flash, with a delicate blend of floral notes and spice you’ll make yourself unforgettable with this signature scent. (For maximum results spray on your wrists, neck and weirdly, behind your knees, these areas are where your body pulses most and allows the fragrance to be dispersed better)
The Sexy Date
So you’ve got the butterflies, ready for a night of dancing and dining but no idea where to go make up wise. Choose this simple yet effortlessly sexy look that will get you through the night without a worry (or smudge) in sight.
Starting out with a breathable and lightweight foundation like the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow, you can find yourself pouring on the flawless coverage as well as brightening your skin tone.
Leave your skin with a matte finish using the bareMinerals Original SPF15 Foundation. Concentrating on your T zone, eradicate shine with this oil busting mineral foundation that will last you all night.
Give you lips a slick of colour using Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil. The shade of the season as well as a skin brightening and statement making colour, this orange hued lip stick applies rich colour alongside a finish that’s glossy and kiss worthy. Get ready to pucker up.
With your lips taking the limelight, keep your eyes simple with Lord & Berry Alchimia High Performance Mascara. Allowing you to open your eyes for that instant sparkle they won’t be able to resist.
Happy Valentine’s Day
