BEAUTY BAR: Red Hot Glam

Looking for some inspiration for your Valentine’s Day makeup look? The red heart holiday is fast approaching and romance is in the air! Whether you love or despise the holiday, you’ve got to admit it’s always a fun reason to get dolled up and experiment with a new style. As per usual, the stakes are upped for the most important date night of the year, but coupled up or flying solo, this Fashionista has got the perfect beauty picks that will help you feel your most beautiful!

To start, you want to have a lit-from-within radiance. This is shown and achieved by this beauty Fashionista when she applied a liquid highlighter under her foundation. By doing so, the combination lets just enough shimmer through for a natural-looking glow without looking like you’re over doing it. For a re-create first-date flush, use a cheek color that is one shade darker than your usual everyday hue. Blush should be more intense when going out in the evening too where there may be dim lighting!

For Valentine’s Day, it’s all about matte eyes and bold, shiny lip shades. This Fashionista show’s us how it’s done with the matte eyes by taking it up a notch and adding some silver shimmer to give her eyes a more dramatic pop! She is also smart to go with the classic bold red lip for the red and pink holiday. The Fashionista was smart to use a lip stain with added gloss on top. Not only are they low maintenance, but they’re perfect if you’re vying for that perfect Valentine’s Day kiss! If we only do one thing on this day, it is to keep our lips totally kissable at all times! Finish your look off with a makeup stay finishing spray to ensure you won’t have a “makeup meltdown” and your Valentine’s Day look stays perfectly in place!
