Valentine’s Day Eye Makeup to Wear with Red Lipstick
When wearing a red lipstick the lips remain the focus of the makeup look so it’s best to go easy on the eyes. For your valentine’s day eye makeup to complement your red lip try to keep it light and simple with just a little eyeliner and mascara – this will ensure your valentine’s day makeup look isn’t too dramatic or over-powering and rather looks effortlessly chic, sophisticated, and elegant.
To create an easy valentine’s day eye makeup to complement your red lip apply a very thin line of Le Stylo Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner just to the upper lash line and focus it as close to the lashes as possible. To create this effect you may like to try applying eyeliner using the tightlining technique this involves using the very tip of the pencil eyeliner to gently apply the eyeliner in-between the lashes to help fill in any gaps and create the look of a fuller lash bed. With a longwearing waterproof formula that glides onto the lash line for precise application and provides intense pigmented color that doesn’t budge or flake it’s a great pick for your valentine’s day eye makeup look.
Once you’ve applied your eyeliner as part of your Valentine’s Day eye makeup look add a few coats of mascara. Lash Idôle Mascara is perfect for this look as it’s specifically designed to give length and lift to the lashes and create a beautiful soft and fluttery lash look. Its specially curved mascara wand lifts lashes to create an open and bright eyed effect and the 360 micro-bristles grab every lash from root to tip. With lightweight gel formula lashes are left looking feathery soft and effortlessly clump free. The soft and feathery look is perfect for complementing a red lip for your valentine’s day look.
Perfecting Your Base for a Valentine’s Day Makeup Look
The red lip may be the focus of this valentine’s day makeup look — but that makes it all the more important to perfect your base. Start your valentine’s day makeup look by applying a light layer of Teint Idole Ultra 24 Hour Long Wear Foundation to help even out the skin tone. With a lightweight feel and buildable full coverage, it’s a foundation suitable for all skin tones. The natural matte finish gives skin a beautiful natural look that doesn’t appear cakey or powdery but rather elegant and polished. The soft matte finish teams perfectly with a beautiful creamy red lipstick as it helps to create an even base and ensure the red lipstick remains the focal point of the red valentine’s day makeup look. The long-wearing formula has up to 24 hours wear time and transfer resistant and humidity proof properties so it’s a perfect option for a date on valentine’s day.
Although the foundation provides a medium buildable coverage you may still find you need a little extra coverage in certain areas such as dark circles, redness, dark spots or pimples. After applying your foundation apply a small amount of Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer. It’s important to pay extra attention to any areas where you may have redness as these areas can become exaggerated when wearing red lipstick. Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer is perfect for covering on all areas of the face as the formula is lightweight and effortlessly blends over the skin leaving a soft natural finish which doesn’t look cakey or dry.
Once the skintone has been evened out with foundation and concealer it’s time to add a subtle flush of color to the cheeks. It’s important not to go too overboard as this can cause a clash with the red lipstick. To complement the red valentine’s day lipstick try applying the blush in a way that sculpts and defines the face. Using an angled blush brush apply blush in a subtle peachy or beige color in the areas where you would usually contour. To complement the red valentine’s day makeup look try a subtle nude shade like Blush Subtil in French Blush – this will add a soft rosy flush to the skin without looking too overpowering.
Valentine’s Day Perfume
After creating your Valentine’s Day makeup look add a spritz of perfume as you head out for your valentine’s day date. As this red valentine’s day makeup look with red lipstick is all about romance, elegance and alluring sophistication complement your look with the classic Idôle Perfume.
