My makeup for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to be at your beautiful best. Whether you prefer a femme fatale or dewy makeup look, it all depends on your personality and plans. Here's your go-to guide for the perfect beauty look for an enchanting evening...

Evening makeup

Opt for simplicity above all, and don't take what the beauty magazines recommend too seriously! Remember how you're hoping the evening will go. For most, a traditional romantic dinner is on their Valentine's wish-list. In this case, avoid dark brown shades, as most lights in the evening have unflattering yellow hues to them, which clash with warm colors. Instead, go for 'cold' shades which work better under yellow light.

A personalized beauty look

Depending on whether you are blonde or brunette, different shades will suit you when it comes to choosing makeup. Blondes with fair complexions should opt for chocolate or eggplant colors, but those with tanned skin will look better with rust or orange hues. Brunettes look great with caramel or violet shades, and – lucky for them - can actually wear most colors.

One of the golden rules when it comes to makeup is to decide whether you want to put the emphasis on your eyes or your lips. Never both! Choose whichever suits you more.

For a perfect Valentine's Day makeup look, apply a soft and delicate shade of eyeshadow across the eyelids, define your eyes with the help of the Lash Queen Mystic Black mascara, and lift your complexion with the Wanted Blush in 01. To bring your lips to center stage, use the Wanted Rouge lipstick in a bold shade such as 101 or 102.

Your beauty look is ready. Now, all you need to do is relax and spend a lovely evening with that special person in your life. They won't be able to take their eyes off of you...
