Valentines Day Makeup: Good Girl vs. Bad Girl

Valentines Day is just around the corner, which means date night makeup , single and ready to mingle makeup, or girls night makeup.  Here are two looks, natural & dramatic, that stays away from that overdone girly look and can be used for both a date night or a girls night.


The "Good Girl" Look


Keep it natural with this date night look. A soft eye and lip can sometimes be the most attractive type of makeup on a woman. The goal is to enhance what you already have by adding a little sparkle to the eye, a flawless complexion, and a touch of pucker to the lips.

Tips:
  •  Skincare. Get a facial, put some cucumbers on your eyes and really detoxify your skin, happy skin is  beautiful skin. 
  •  Golds. The key to a good natural look is to keep it warm, so use gold liners in the water line, bronze colors on the lower lash line, and brown shadows as accent colors. 
  • Half lashes. The best way to look natural but alluring at the same time is to use half lashes. They enhance your eye makeup by opening the eyes and achieving a more flirty look.
  • Soft lips. Nothing looks better with a gold flirty look than a natural "kiss me" lips. Use a lip scrub to smooth out the lips, pat on a matte pink lipstick and a clear gloss in the center. I usually use a brown sugar and honey scrub a few times a week to help lip colors apply on more smoothly. 

The "Bad Girl" Look: 

A great look for a fun girls night or a more darker environment. This look is obviously more on the dramatic side, but since it's very one dimensional in color, it won't look too much or overdone.

Tips
  • Matte Face. As oppose to the previous look, you want to stay away from any shimmer or highlighter on the face. Mix your regular foundation with a matte one that is a shade lighter. 
  • Pick a color. Plum, burgundy, brown, or any sultry dark color will work, but just choose one. You want that color to pop on the eyes and lips, drawing the focus to both. 
  • Full Lashes. Use multiple pairs of full lashes and get that "va va voom" look. Avoid using too many eye shadow colors and just stick to a dark lash line and voluminous lashes. This will help you look dramatic and sexy, but approachable. Your date & your girls will love it. 


<3 Happy Valentines Day <3
