Whenever I think of Valentine’s Day, I always picture bright, vibrant pink lips. Valentine’s Day is day you can be a little more daring with your make up choices. You can rock a sultry smokey eye and nude lip or a sexy winged liner with a bold true red lip. I personally prefer to play up my lips on this romantic holiday, with a nice bold red or a hot pop pink. This year I decided to go with my personal favourite lip colour from M.A.C, ‘Girl About Town’, a beautiful bright pink. Since the colour is so fabulous on it’s own I decided to keep my eyes super natural using only matte based shadows, in brown neutral tones, with a very subtle black liquid liner and lots and lots of mascara! What would a girl do without mascara? I added a touch of bronzer to give a nice subtle glow and pretty pink blush to make me look extra girly. I mean, if you’re going to look girly you might as well do it on Valentine’s Day. I like to keep my hair simple so that I still look like myself, with just a subtle touch of makeup to enhance my natural beauty.
And of course since I am a nail technician after all, I had to rock some romantic nails in the spirit of Valentines Day. I decided to go with a true red colour with a negative space heart painted on one nail. Nail art is a nice subtle touch to celebrate the cheesy romantic holiday, when else are you going to paint a heart on your nail?! Happy Valentine’s Day Beauties.
