Valentines Hair & Makeup Look

Love is in the air and whether you’re planning to have a romantic get together or are planning on painting the town ‘red’, never has there been a more important night for your make up to be perfect. Luckily we’ve created a step by step guide to make sure you look fabulously flirty!

Hair – Plait Perfection

Starting with either damp or dry hair, put your hair into a side part and spritz with some heat protection spray. Separate your hair into small to medium sections and dry using Babyliss Big Hair Styler , the rotating brush helps add volume and shine giving you a gorgeous high volume look easily! Once you’ve finished styling, lightly tease the hair around your crown with a comb, if you want some extra volume try adding some Tigi Root Boost Spray it will add maximum boost without weighing your hair down. Pull all hair around to one side so it hangs on the nape of your neck, if needed lightly brush to control frizz. Sectioning the hair into 3 sections loosely twist your hair into a plait and secure at the bottom with a hair bamd. Finsih off with a light spray of Tigi Hard Head Hair Spray and your fuss free hair is good to go!


Skin – Good to Glow

For  fabulously flawless skin apply some Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, with its Advanced Smart Tone Technology there is no need for any concealer! Enhanced with Sapphire Radiance for an illuminating glow, this flawless coverage looks natural and will last for hours. Sweep over  some Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush Veloute De Peche over the apples of your cheeks for the perfect flush, with its built in mirror and blush its perfect for touch ups on the go too.

Eyes – Flirty Flick

No make up look would be complete without the classic winged eye! Start by taking the NYX  Curve Eyeliner (its curved shape helpes make even the most novice make up wearer a pro), draw a line from your inner eye and brush along your lashline to the outer corner. If your still a bit weary of wobbles you can always rest your elbow on a table. Once you reach the end of your lash line imagine a line from the outside corner of your eye to the end of your brow, this is the angle for the wing. Lightly brush this imaginary line until you have your desired wing effect. Remeber the firmer you press the thicker the line will become. Next up you need to apply some lashes, for some added Ooo La La we recommend Bourjois Faux & Fabulous Lashes – Smoky Eyes! , with a added layer of Fan-Tastic Volume Mascara.

Powerful Pout

For the perfect pout apply some Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Rose Millesme, the formula boasts a 10hour hydration and with a  pure laque you gain extra colour & shine! Rouge Edition Lipstick is incredibly soft, it has been approved & tested by a number of  fashion editors so you know your right on trend.
Now your make up look is complete all you need to do is sort out what your wearing!

P.s Dont forget a spritz of Illamasqua Freak before you leave, the fragrances burnt orange bloom base is highly prized the world over for its ability to enhance the wearer’s natural perfume, helping to cast a magical spell of desire!
