Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks

Valentine’s Day is just a few days away! Do you have plans?

We are having Jane Iredale master makeup artist Georgia Mechlin here with us at the salon for makeup applications as well as great discounts! So check us out for that.

We also wanted to share a few makeup looks to try this Valentine’s Day! Some of which you should be able to accomplish at home as well.

Some girls are afraid of pink eye shadows. And we agree that you should be careful. Some of them may give the impression of irritation or allergies. So if you want to stay away from coating all your leyelid, a smokey look with a dash of pink would be the perfect option to go with.

If a black, bold look isn’t for you, don’t fret! You can achieve the same smokey look with natural hues. It makes it not only easy to apply, but go perfectly with a daytime plan.

Some women prefer to take on a simpler approach, and still emphasize their eyes. To achieve that, we suggest an eye opening makeup look. Not only is it a simple enough look that you can recreate, but your valentine won’t be able to look away from you. For an additional flair, add some half lashes at the end to achieve the fuller look on the lashes.

Linda Halbergs approach to the look is less intimidating to our valentines. She keeps the eye makeup on earthy tones, and her lips remain mainly natural, with a sheen of pink. Lots of women think this is more smooch-friendly than red lips.

Most clients that we have want to rock some beautiful bold red lips. It’s Valentine’s after all. I know most guys usually shy away from such bold colors because they don’t want it to get on them or their clothes, but there are tricks to ensure that. First and foremost, opt for a STAIN instead of lip color. Once dry, they don’t budge! Jane Iredale has their Lip Fixations that truly do stay put – plus, they are made with all natural ingredients. Second trick is to apply your lip color, blot with a tissue and even adding some light dusting of powder over the tissue to lock it in. We still prefer the stain method, and all you need to do is moisturize it.

This last look is for the fearless ladies. The ones that take Valentine’s as an opportunity to go all out. This beautiful deep red scream passion and the gold eyes are a nice complement to the bold lips.
