Valentine’s Day Makeup + 5 Beauty Hacks

Hey Guys! Valentines Day is upon is again and I’m sure that means different things for everyone. Some people love it and some people hate it. I’ve always loved Valentines Day, single or not and I’m super excited to show you this sparkly look instead of a traditional red sultry one. 

For this look I used:
-Benefit The POREfessional Pearl Primer
-Fenty Beauty Foundation, 330
-Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless, 330
-NARS Radient Creamy Concealer, Biscuit
NYX Colour Correcting Powder, Banana
-NYX Contour, Amber
-Too Faced Holiday 2016 Eggnog Palette
-Anastasia Beverly Hills, Modern Renaissance Palette
-Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow, Smokey Storm
-NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette
-Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama
-NYX Micro Brow Pencil, Expresso
-Kylie Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick, Ginger
-Essence Lip Gloss, (I’m not sure what shade, but it applies clear)

Seeing that it is Valentine’s Day coming up here are 5 beauty hacks that I’ve either learnt about through friends or read online! These will work for any special date (or event) you may go on!

1.Skin Care: For any occasion,  I like to prep my skin the night before with a gentle face mask or spot treatments. I know this is obvious but drink a lot of water as well.

2.Red Wine As Deodorant? Story time. Back in high school when I was getting ready for prom with my friends, someones mom suggested dabbing red wine on our armpits right after shaving because this apparently locks in any unwanted scents. It burned. But it totally worked! That being said I haven’t been able to find anything on this hack online so I think that was literally just my friend’s mom knowing things. I did find another hack on using hand sanitizer as deodorant? What?

3.Bikini Line: By now I’m sure you’ve seen that article of a real stripper’s tips to remove hair in the bikini area. Here it is.

4.Scent: A friend once told me that upon getting out of the shower and drying off your skin it’s good to spritz perfume on your neck, and in-between your elbow and knee creases or pits. Not sure what the lingo is for those parts of the body. She said that those parts of the body preserve the scent better making it last longer.

5. Highlight: Don’t just highlight your face- highlighting the ears, collarbones and shoulders all give off the glowing from within kind of look.

I hope these helped at least one person out! Whatever you do this Valentine’s Day, I hope you have a lovely day! (I’m probably going to eat pizza in my pyjamas and do assignments.)

Take Care and Keep Smiling!
