How to upgrade your Classic Smokey Eye for V-Day

With Valentine's Day only a few days away! we all want to look and feel your best. It doesn't matter if you're going stag, cuddling with your boo, or on the prowl with your ladies every woman wants to look THE best on V-Day. Luckily, us ladies here at Mission Beauty Salon & Spa have some makeup Tips & Tricks to keeping you looking B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!

Do you want to create a gorgeous makeup look for Valentine's Day, but you're sick of the classic Smokey Eye? Don't worry we have the perfect look for you, that will look good on anybody!

At Mission Beauty Salon & Spa we give you a how-to twist on the over-played smokey eye! Because as much as the Smokey Eye may bore you, it is a classic look for a reason. One. It looks good on EVERYBODY. Two. It's easy. But there are ways to use the same concept of the smokey eye, and twisting it into something new! A smoky purple eye is a perfect look for a pretty and unexpected twist on the classic look. Purple is a softer color choice, but it’s still dark enough to make your eyes pop and appear bigger and brighter. If purple isn't your color, you can just adopt the style and switch it to a dark green, bronze, or dusky pink eye colour.

A great Eye Shadow to try, is the Eye Shadow Trio by Stila. Three eye shadow shades in one - base, crease and liner - make your eye shadow a breeze and create a complete eye look in minutes! Wear colors alone or together for countless combinations. And they give Eight different looks, that you can create with these colours.

In the Spirit of Valentine's Day, I would recommend the Venus Eye Shadow Trio, by Stila. It's the pefect combo of purple and pink, that's still dark enough to highlight your eyes.
  • Apply the shade on the left for the basecoat across the entire lower lid from lash line to crease.
  • Add the middle shade to accent the inner-corner of the eyes.
  • Use the shade on the right to highlight under the brow bones.
  • Load 2 coats of mascara on top lashes and one coat on the bottom.
This subtle and sophisticated take on the smoky eye would look amazing on anyone. This style is universally flattering, and makes brown, green and even blue eyes pop. It’s a perfect way for any woman to show off a unique spin on the traditional black or gray smoky eye, but still look classically glamorous.Whether it’s day or night, you want to make the eyes pop. To glam up a daytime look so you’re ready for the night, apply a shimmery shade over your traditional daytime eyeshadow. Add a touch of highlighter in a sideways v-shape.

So now your prepared for your Valentine's Day Adventure Day or Night. So get prepared for your night out, you never know who your going to meet. And it's never wrong to try an impress someone who's already caught your eye. And at Mission Beauty Salon & Spa, we have the tools for you, to make your Valentine's Day one you won't forget!
