The Only Valentines Day Makeup Look You Need For 2020 – Laure Sejean
The Festive Season is over and a new year has started! But fear not! There is still plenty of opportunity for facing 2020 with your best beauty bounty, as I continue to keep you on the Glam Track. So, with Valentine’s Day just around the calendar corner, our bridal beauty expert Laure Sejean, has created a special tutorial for you! For that bright-eyed and ‘bushy-tailed’ look that young love inspires, I wanted to share my tips to create luminosity for both your skin and your eyes. Because this year’s beauty trend bids farewell to the bold red lip and hello to accentuating your other best asset… the eyes!
GLOWING LUMINOUS SKIN – HOW TO
Here’s how you get the perfect Valentine’s Day makeup look. The first step to achieving luminous skin is in nailing the right skincare routine, and not all of us have the time nor the money for regular salon/spa treatments to achieve that ‘glow’.
Prep & Base:
♡Start by cleansing your face and using an exfoliating scrub to remove any dead skin.
♡Followed by using a moisturizing mask: I just love the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask, perfect for dry to normal skin. After only 15 min, it gives it such a glow. Your skin will feel smooth and super hydrated. For oily skin types, I’d recommend that you stick to your usual moisturizer.
♡When applying your desired moisturizer to your face, neck and décolletage, don’t forget to hydrate the area under your eyes. The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream and Eye-to-rescue cream is one of my go-to’s. If you have oily skin, I would recommend that you apply only a very small amount, as both creams are super-rich.
♡So, which foundation can you use for this special day? In my video tutorial, I used the Luminous Silk Foundation by Giorgio Armani. It gives a light to medium coverage and uses their exclusive Micro–fil™ technology to sculpt and brighten the skin. I’d definitely vote it in as this year’s Valentine’s Day staple. For oily skin, you can try using their matte foundation for a base as there will be plenty of opportunity later to add the glow.
A VISION OF GOLDEN PERFECTION – THE EYES
Frame those soul windows in that ‘golden hour’ glow all day long and he’ll get lost within them. To create these mesmerizing Golden Eyes, first, decide on your preference; if you want to go with a discrete look, then you will only need to apply a golden highlighter, for which I’d suggest any of these options:
♡Huda Beauty in Golden Sands Edition
♡Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed powder
♡Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm
For those of you who’d like to go a step further, these are my product recommendations:
♡Kat Von D Glitter Gel For Face And Body In Tesoro Gold
♡Marc Jacobs See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow
♡Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadows
FINISHING UP THE LOOK
This look is all about the eyes, so keep your lip nude so that it doesn’t steal the show. You have many options in the market and the one you choose should be right for your complexion and colouring. Here are some of my faves:
♡Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick in Beige Nu
♡MAC Matte Lipsticks from the All Stars Collection
♡HudaBeauty Power Bullet Lipstick in Prom Night
♡Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick.
However, it is Valentine Days after all, so pucker your pout and some plumpness to your lips by adding a gloss. Here are some of my favourites:
♡Marc Jacobs Enamored Lip Laquer
♡Fenty Gloss Bomb
