Guide to the Perfect Valentine’s Day Look
Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching and you don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute to make sure that you look and feel your best. Whether you are celebrating with a long-time love, a new and exciting love interest, or just some of your best girls, you definitely don’t want your make up to fall short. Here are some trendy little tips to create a hot Valentine’s Day look that both you and your partner (or friends) will absolutely love!
Ditch the Red
Nothing says Valentine’s Day more than vibrant red lips, right? Wrong! This year, choose a more subtle colored lip gloss that shows off the natural texture of your lips, making them look irresistibly soft and kissable.
Don’t Be Fake
If you don’t typically wear hair extensions, false lashes, or get spray tanned, now is not the time to venture into uncharted beauty territory. You may come across as trying too hard. Embrace what makes you unique and naturally beautiful. False lashes that you can purchase in-store can look too costume-like and obviously fake. If you want to enhance your lashes in a way that looks natural, come to Botanica for eyelash extensions. They provide a much more natural, fuller look than store-bought lashes.
Nail Your Look with a Fresh Manicure
A great manicure can make you feel instantly polished and more sophisticated. Your Valentine mani should complement your look, not distract from it. This is where you can definitely go with a radiant and sultry red color. Not sure what color to choose? Ask your manicurist for a recommendation.
Obviously, it’s always best to schedule your monthly facial with Valentine’s Day in mind, but if you find yourself in a pinch to get that fresh, glowy look, opt for a liquid highlighter. Highlighting your face will give it a more youthful and dewy appearance. If you want to play up your sexiness even more, try adding some shimmery body lotion to your collarbones or shoulders.
Be Subtly Fragrant
One of the biggest beauty faux pas is overdoing it with the fragrance, which men are often guilty of as well! Never douse yourself in your favorite perfume. Instead, spray your perfume in the air and walk through it backwards. This way, your fragrance can only be detected by those who get close to you.
Planning for Valentine’s Day should be fun, not stressful. Keep your look simple and clean. Your partner will be sure to notice just how beautiful you are inside and out.
