However, there is something exceptionally magical about Valentines Day that not only makes you excited about raiding your closet in pursuit of a dress that will send the right message, (the message being that you are over the moon in love 💘), but also about the makeup that will reflect the sentiment.To that end, here are some of the most romantic suggestions for makeup looks that are bound to ensure your sweet Valentine is left with nothing but amazement and a desire to lavish you with never-ending kisses.
The Classic Red LipIf you’re a traditionalist and a firm believer in red being the color of love, a clean and classy red lip 👄look is the way to go. By this point, it’s most likely that you own your perfect shade of red lipstick, and it is time to fish it out of your makeup case. For this occasion, it’s highly recommended you opt for a matte lipstick, preferably powered by a lip-liner in the same shade. This will not only ensure durability and stain-free wine glasses, but it will also allow you the lengthy lip-locks with your significant other without having to run to the ladies room for a touch up every ten minutes.
As for the rest of your face, given the boldness of the red lip, keep things clean and simple. Be sure to have the right makeup brushes as they make all the difference in the world. When it comes to foundation, a flawless finish is best achieved by using a brush. Depending on your skin type, go for either a flat brush or if you’re not a fan of your pores a flat top foundation brush; it is the best tool for making them disappear.Finally, the eyes. Apply a neutral eyeshadow across the lid as it will prevent your perfect eyeliner from smudging and make sure your wing is on fleek.
The No-Makeup Look
For all the ladies out there who swear by the ‘less is more’ approach to makeup, a variety of nudes is what should be on your makeup table in preparation for this evening.
Apply your base shadow all over the lid. After that, pick up your crease brush in order to add a pop of color; preferably a light bronze or peach eyeshadow. After that, blend to smooth out the rough edges and achieve a seamless finish. Your lips should be covered with nothing but a gentle peach lip gloss designed to make you look fresh and effortless.Of course, no no-makeup look is ever complete without a touch of shimmer, and that is where a good light honey highlighter comes to play. Grace the top of your cheekbones with the right amount of highlighter for that J.Lo glow, and by no means should you forget the tip of your nose and cupid’s bow for a full a kissable pout. If you are a visual learner and need help achieving this look, turn to Lisa Eldridge.
Pretty in PinkIn case you wish to take a page from Emma Watson’s beauty book and exude that subtle romance, make pink your color. The eyeshadow palette that comes to mind for this look is one infused with different shades of pink.
Apply a neutral pale beige shade across your eyelid, and add just a touch of the satin-textured medium pink shade on the crease. Moderate amount of mascara is recommended for this look. The cheeks should be kept light. Use a translucent light pink blush gently applied with a blush brush.
As the rest of your makeup is dreamily fresh and light, the lips could stand for a pop of color. Don’t be afraid to use a more bold shade of pink, perhaps dab into the lightplum family. This look is bound to make you look like a fairy, evoking that A Midsummer Night’s Dream feel.All of these looks celebrate femininity, romance and love. Each of these, in their own way; sends the same message, so there is no way you could go wrong with any of them. On Valentine’s day, wear your heart on your sleeve and let your face reflect the romantic goddess that you are.

This product has always been a talked about product in the makeup groups and it is a holy grail for some and a hit or miss for others. Strolling around in the mall I came across the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water in Home Depot I could not resist buying it. I waited awhile before I tried it and I must say it is a very good product indeed. It stands up to its claim!
Instructions on using Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
It is stated on the bottle that to remove eye makeup you must hold a damp pad to the product over your eyes and gently wipe without rubbing harshly. As for me, I wouldn’t recommend that if you have sensitive eyes. I tried and it burned my eyes and they instantly became red. I immediately flush with water since I was standing over the sink. There is a warning on the bottle saying avoid getting in occurs. If it occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.The Garnier Micellar cleanser feels like a combination of soft water and a mixture of cleansing oil. I love to use cleansing oil to remove makeup from my face since it helps to remove even the thickest layers of makeup. After damping my cotton pads with the Micellar water I proceed to remove the makeup from my face, my face is often left with a soft glow and a clean feeling but as usual, I would proceed to rinse with water. At other times if I just come in from my daily outing I would just use the Micellar Cleansing Water to remove excess makeup then ensure to wash my face before going to bed. This Micellar Cleansing Water removes at least 99% of makeup.
For removing makeup
Using the Micellar Water to remove makeup will take 2-3 cotton pads for your overall face. If you have dry makeup remover towelettes you can damp them with the Micellar Water and proceed to remove makeup. The Micellar Water removed excess amount of makeup from my face, leaving a small unseen amount of residue and for a budget-friendly product, I would repurchase.
I did not experience any break-out while using this product and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
