Hey, beauties! It’s Valentine’s Day! Who doesn’t love the perfect excuse to add a little something special and switch things up just a bit?! Luckily, we’ve got some fun makeup ideas and beauty tips to add to your makeup routine to make you feel extra sexy!
Here are 5 ways to spice up your makeup routine for Valentine’s Day:
1 | For extra pouty, juicy-looking lips, try contouring and highlighting your lips. Sound crazy? Maybe, but trust us! Use that contour stick just below the centre of your lips, and above your cupid’s bow. Apply your lipstick and plumping gloss as usual. From there, apply your favourite highlighter in the centre of your lips and cupid’s bow for the fullest pout!
2 | Speaking of highlighter, who doesn’t love that extra glow? Are you donning a corset, strapless dress or sleeveless top this Valentine’s Day? Perfect! Grab a shimmering body oil! We love Fenty Beauty Body Lava or Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body. Apply it onto your shoulders, collar bone and chest and top it off with some highlighter for an extra sexy touch.
3 | Let’s bring some focus back to our eyes! We want to exude sweet, but sexy. Think about layering some individual lashes to the corners of your eyes to give a sultry-sweet look. For an even more exaggerated doe-eyed look, try combining the lashes with a nude eyeliner pencil in your waterline and watch how your eyes just light up! The nude pencil will give the illusion of bigger and brighter eyes. Not a fan of lashes? Try a lash lift instead for a more natural feel!
4 | Nothing makes you feel sexy like a beautiful white smile. Use our teeth whitening pen for a few days before your big night out to get your teeth as pearly white as possible. Bonus? We recently discovered that there is such a thing as purple toothpaste! Using the purple toothpaste for a few days counteracts the yellow coloured stains we all get on our teeth. Follow up the toothpaste with the whitening pen for an extra gorgeous bang!
5 | Last but most certainly not least, we cannot forget about perfume. Grab your favourite scent — the one that makes you feel your sexiest — and try applying it to these sneaky spots: behind the ears, on the wrists, insides of the elbows, and behind the knees. These are called pulse points, those spots on the body where your heart pulse can be felt. Due to the warmth of your blood, it makes them the best spots to apply scent! If you find that scent tends to fade quickly on you, try dabbing a touch of Alba’s Un-Petroleum Jelly before applying your perfume for a longer-lasting effect!
