Make up for Valentines Day
Right then, onto the main reason for this post. Valentines Day!! If you are like me, I think Valentines Day is just a way for the shops to make money, and I don't tend to celebrate it very much. I just don't think you should just spend one day telling your loved one how much you care for them. You should do it every day of the year. But in saying all that, it is a nice reason to get dressed up and wear some make up that reflects the colours of the day by wearing pink or red.
A couple of years ago I would have said never to wear pink or red near the eyes as it can tend to make you either look ill or tired but nowadays the shades are just so very wearable and can be worn as bright or as subtle as you would like.
This is the Maybelline colour tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate.
This is another Maybelline colour tattoo but in Pink Gold. Can you tell I love the colour tattoos?? I'm sorry but I just think they are amazing versatile products and their lasting power is second to none. For another look, you could apply the pink gold to the actual eyelid, but then apply the pomegranate colour to the outer V and then blend it into the crease to deepen the colour just slightly.
Now for the best part (I think) the nail polishes. Nothing quite finishes off a look like beautifully manicured nails, as I think it really shows that you have made an effort for the night/day out. There are gorgeous red and pink shades of nail polish in every make up brand and in many different finishes, glitters, shimmers, mattes and satins. Here are just a few that I found in my collection.
Last of all, perfume. Now I think this is important because you want to be smelling all nice and beautiful, when your loved one comes in for a hug/kiss. I found a perfect perfume that totally symbolises Valentines Day and that one is Diesel's Loverdose. Its simply gorgeous and looks so perfect on your dressing table at this time of the year.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know what you have planned for Valentines Day.
Love and Hugs
