Beautify For Your Beau: Date Night Preparation Tips!
Depending on how long you have to get yourself ready, indulge in a nice hot soak in the bath or a lovely long shower. Treat your hair to some specialised treatments, such as a hydrating leave-in conditioner or a Natural World Moroccan hot oil treatment, for soft, easy to style hair. Use an exfoliating scrub to remove dull skin cells, and prepare your skin with a rich moisturiser to leave your skin feeling silky smooth. Don’t forget to give your face the same treatment with a face mask from Purederm followed by a gentle facial moisturiser for the perfect base for your make up.
Create your make up look around your evening plans accordingly; if you’re being treated to a surprise by your partner, go for a classic paired down look with a bright lip. If you’re going for neutral eye makeup, why not go for an alternative look with a dark berry lip using a matte pigment gloss. This is definitely the most popular and modern take on the traditional red lip look. Even with minimal make up, a well-lined and filled in lip colour can make you look more finished.
You can’t go wrong with a gorgeous smokey eye for a perfect evening look. Mix things up with a coloured eyeliner or eyeshadow from LA Girl which works as a beautiful contrast to your eye colour. For brown eyes, try purples and navy, blue eyes look good with golds and taupes, and green eyes suit most colours, but really pop with a dark green or plum shades. The eyeshadow palettes from Warpaint Cosmetics contain beautifully pigmented colours which are ideal to use to create a sultry smokey eye. Enhance your eyes even more with lashings of mascara by LA Colors and fill in your eyebrows to expertly frame your face.
However long you take getting ready for a date or special occasion, every girl knows the importance of smelling good and how it can affect the way you feel. Spritz your favourite fragrance on the main body points (neck, chest and wrist) or for a lighter scent, spray into the air and walk into it. Try a gorgeous scent from Marc Jacobs or Jimmy Choo for the perfect evening fragrances. To make your scent last the evening, maybe consider decanting into a smaller bottle, or even bring the whole bottle if you can fit it into your bag.
Feel confident and look beautiful this Valentine’s Day.
