Valentine’s Day fashion and make-up ideas:
When the relationship is still new, most people try to look their best. They wear fancy clothes, do a bit of make-up, and their hair and nails are always on point.
However, as time goes on, some get comfortable being crusty in front of their partners. It’s not that they no longer put the effort into looking good, but to be honest, there’s no need to dress up for the couch.
But when it’s time to go out, it’s also time to pull out all the stops to remind your partner how gorgeous you can be.
Below, we have compiled a few make-up and fashion ideas to make sure you look your best for your date.
Don’t go heavy into make-up, but don’t be too bland either – a subtle balance is best.
Don’t bake that face, instead, opt for a more natural-looking foundation application. It will give you a more even look. But make sure you use a bit of highlighter and light blush to contour.
Don’t compromise with the eyes, go all out. You want your date to look straight into your eyes because they can’t get enough of the art you’ve created.
Keep them staring. However, avoid extra long eyelashes, they can cause unnecessary distraction and we don’t want that.
We know the black lip liner and clear lip gloss combo is addictive, but give it a rest. Rather wear a nude matt lipstick, in case you want to steal a kiss.
That way, you won’t smudge your lipstick. The best way to keep your lipstick in place is by applying a concealer as a base. It will last longer without creating any creases.
Red and white are the colours of love but we don’t want to make it so obvious. So instead of wearing a red lipstick, paint your nails red.
They have that classy, edgy look, making you feel like the "it" girl you are as you raise your glass to sip on that crisp champagne.
If you have long straight hair, it’s best to tie it into a nice bun to avoid it getting into your face. If you prefer a wig, a knife-cut bob is the best option.
And for braids, tie them up instead of letting them hang loose. For those with curls, make sure they are bouncy and shiny.
When it come to picking an outfit, go all out. If you want to wear a dress, a nice cocktail dress with pointed heels will do.
And for those who prefer pants, black, high-waisted formal pants paired with a black and white knitted golf T-shirt will give you that edgy look.
Comfort is nice but if there’s one day you should avoid sneakers, it’s Valentine’s. If you are not into stilettos, there are block heels, kitten heels and platforms too. There are many options to choose from.
Don’t carry a large handbag, you don’t want to seem like you’ve squeezed an emergency overnight bag in there.
A mini clutch in red, if you’re wearing a black dress, will work too. And if you’re wearing pants, a small sling bag with gold straps is your best bet.
You can never go wrong with gold jewellery, especially earrings. Small hoops and a watch are all you need. Don’t wear a necklace in case your partner surprises you with one. That way, he/she can help you put it on like they do in the movies and, voilà, your outfit is complete.
It’s Valentine’s Day, so you don’t want to wear anything overpowering. Something subtle and sweet is enough to make you noticeable.
And lastly, don’t forget to wear your beautiful smile and have a great time.
