How to look more Romantic for Valentine's Day

Every woman has a certain style to how she does her makeup and her hair, even down to the way she dresses. Some women go for the soft, girlish look. While others go for the serious no-nonsense look. If you want a look that is soft, and romantic this year I have some how-to's that you can use to bring that Valentine's Day Glow to your everyday look. And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, it doesn't hurt to add some romance to your look for V-Day.

Let your eyes do the talking
Less Eye make-up gives you a fresh, youthfulness to your look. I know many of you are screaming out there, since you're addicted to eye liner like I am. (Remember we are trying for a soft, romantic look) This way your eyes can do all the talking and your eyes will look bright and open. You’ll need an eyelash curler for maximum effect, and a couple of coats of your favorite mascara to complete the look.

A great product that ensures long, curling lashes is the Heated Lash Curler by Blinc. Blinc's Heated Lash Curler is simple-to-use and easily shapes lashes in seconds, with extravagant, long-lasting curves. Blinc Lash Curler works without clamping or using excessive pressure making it safer and not damaging to your lashes. Nothing sets a curl better than heat...after all, that's how we curl the hair on our heads! It's the same for your lashes. Not only is it safer, heated curls last longer than pressure curls.

Get that “you’re making me blush” look to last all day
A natural flush, is the ultimate feminine look, that makes the boys go Ga-Ga. An easy way to pick the right blush is to pinch your cheeks, the goal is to find a colour that matches your natural flush. Look for a cream base to blend on the apples of your cheeks and dab on the tip of your nose. The outcome gives you a dewy and fresh-faced, look.

A great cream blush to try would be, the In Touch Cream Blush by Jane Iredale. Sweep the creamy blush stick over your cheeks for a flush that's soft, dewy and natural. It goes on like butter and smells deliciously of pure cocoa powder. You can even try it on your lips, too, for a pulled-together look that stays all day!

Simple lips look more kissable
When you think of Valentine's Day, we think of red, and pink. Of course we all love a killer red, but such a dramtic color does not scream I'm a soft, romantic kind-of girl (which is the goal). For a more romantic pout, try a lip balm. Added with that flush to your cheeks, it gives off the Just been kissed look. It’s totally easy and you can still get that killer colour that you love.

An amazing lip balm is the Citrus Lip Balm by Eminence. The Citrus Lip Balm contains moisturizing shea butter, vitamin-rich sunflower seed oil, protecting beeswax, exfoliating papaya and pineapple, and paprika, which increases blood flow and causes the lips to become full and plump. Rough, chapped texture is smoothed, collagen production is increased and essential nutrients and moisturizers provide long-lasting protection with a silky finish.
Less shimmer let’s you shine more
Sometimes an illuminator can brighten you up just a little too much, keep it light and subtle. Add just a hint on your cheekbones and under your brows to get a healthy, youthful freshness. For a nutural beauty, what can be more seductive than that?

I highly recommend the Illuminate Pure Finish by Mirabella. This Loose mineral powder creates a refined finish, adding subtle sheen to skin while creating a luminous, soft glow. Use it anywhere: skin, eyes, lips and body.

Whatever look you're going for, these great products and more can be found online at Mission Beauty Salon & Spa.
