Makeup Tips for Valentine’s Day

As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, here are a few quick makeup tips for that perfect kissable evening out with your dream date.

No guy wants to kiss his Valentine with a gallon of lip gloss on their lips. Keep the lip stick or lip gloss and your foundation to a bare minimum.

The idea for this look is, less is more. I find that most men prefer their women with less makeup.

For Luscious Lips:

Step 1: Prep your lips by scrubbing them lightly with a lip exfoliator such as the one from Benefit Cosmetics, called LipScription. You can also create your own scrub with a packet of raw sugar and a few drops of vitamin E oil. 

Step 2: Apply a generous amount of the Benefit Pocket Pal, a liquid lip stain that will stain your lips a bright shade of cherry. The pocket pal also comes with a clear lipgloss on the opposite end.

Step 3: After you have applied your lip stain, then apply the lip balm that comes with the LipScription in Step One or a clear lip gloss. All lip products are from Benefit Cosmetics, and available at

For Dewey Skin:

Step 1: Apply your favorite moisturizer as usual.   Next, dot a few drops of your favorite foundation or tinted moisturizer and use your fingers to blend into your face. Set your base with a light dusting of translucent powder using a powder puff to the T-Zone area. 

Step 2: Use a rose tinted cream color blush, and apply to the apples of the cheeks and blend into your temples.

Step 3: For the eyes, apply a light dusting of Stila’s Kitten eye shadow all over your eye lids. Next, take a brown or black eye liner and define the outer corners of your eye and blend with your finger. Apply a few coats of black mascara, and groom your brows and you are good to go.
