valentines day special-makeup tips

I think it was neccesary to post it as all you young ladies must be wondering how to get that look ....eiter trying to book parlours ...but dont worry here are the tips that 'll make you just perfect for the romantic evening-

For a soft, romantic makeup look:
"The key to keeping your look soft is to use sheer, muted colors and avoid overdoing any one area of your face. There are lots of sheer, beautiful pinks at the cosmetics counter that look wonderful on all skin tones, whether you have pale white or deep brown skin. If you could buy only one new product for your updated, fresh romantic look, take pink lip gloss with brown undertones. This shade is gorgeous and looks fantastic on everyone.

"To create the face: Curl your lashes and apply either black or brown mascara. (Make sure you don't use too much.) After you've prepared you face as you normally do, softly contour you cheeks with a very pale, pink blush, placing it just on your cheekbones. Again, keep it light. You just want an accent of a neutral pink to give your face a lift. (Dip your blush brush lightly into the color then tap it off before applying it gently to your face.) Add the gloss to your lips and you're done!"

Sexy make-up look:

For that sexy look the main make up area is your eyes .
Apply your foundation, under eye concealer and powder.Using your black eyeliner pencil, start from the front corner of your eyelid. Draw a soft smudge line to the end of your lash line.Use your eyeshadow brush to apply the dark eye shadow over the top of the smudged line for a soft smoky look. Ensure that the edges are neatly blended.Then take the brush eyeliner and apply as close to your lashes as you can on the top lid only. Make the line as thick and pronounced as you wish, but make sure that the line is thickest at the outer corner, and thinner as you go inward.Apply another smoky coat of eye shadow with the brush to blend the harsh edges.Subtly blend your darker eye shadow up from your lashes to your eye crease. Then apply a shimmery highlight in white or cream under the outside corner of your eyebrow.Use your eyebrow pencil to make your eyebrow curve more pronounced.Curl your eyelashes, then apply thin coats of mascara, building the layers up gradually to avoid clumping. Put on a glossy lipstick with a tasty lipgloss on it ...and add shine to your cheecks with glossy blusher but try not to overdo .
