From Desk to Dusk Valentine’s Day Makeup

From Desk to Dusk Valentine’s Day Makeup

 

This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday so unfortunately, no full day of celebrating the love, it sadly has to happen after a day at the desk instead. Whether you’re out for a romantic meal, a date at the fairground, or off to take pictures, you may want to spruce up your makeup so you look your very best for a fun evening out.

We’ve got some of the best tips on how you can transform your everyday office makeup into a picture perfect Valentine’s Day evening look with just a few extra products in your handbag.

1. Spritz your skin for an instant refresh

After eight hours in the office, any foundation isn’t going to look as fresh as it once did and applying and reapplying a whole new base will be a complete time-waster. Instead, reach for a makeup refresher spray such as the Sephora Beauty Amplifier Set and Refresh Spray which will help rehydrate your skin and smooth your makeup. Simply spritz and go in with a damp makeup sponge to create a flawless base once again.

2. Apply lashes for extra drama

One of the easiest ways to transform your day look into an evening look is to apply a set of volumising lashes to enhance your eye makeup. Even if you’ve kept things simple with eyeshadow and liner, a pair of falsies will add an evening and party look to your makeup as nothing says Valentine’s Day more than fluttering, flirty lashes. Our favorites are the Huda Beauty Lashes which come in all different styles for varying eye shapes and styles.

3. Add back your radiant glow

By the end of the day, makeup can look a little dull and lackluster, so highlighters and illuminators will be your best friend for adding back in that youthful glow and radiance to your skin. Strobing and highlighting has become a must-have step in any makeup routine over the years and there are now a huge amount of products available to give you that all-important glow. If you fancy going disco-ball bold, try the new Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters for a serious pop. If subtle is more your thing, Benefit Girl Meets Pearl is a gorgeous pearl luminizer to refresh your makeup look.

4. Dry shampoo is a handbag must-have

Once your makeup is looking evening-ready, you need to keep that hair in check. For some of us, even if we’ve washed our hair in the morning, by the end of office hours things are beginning to look a little limp and lifeless. Dry shampoo is great not just for banishing grease and excess oils, but for adding in volume and texture – a must-have for any Valentine’s Day look. Make sure you always have a travel-sized dry shampoo in your handbag so you’re always prepared!

5. Go bold with lipstick

Any minimal makeup look is transformed completely with a bold lipstick, so if you want a desk to dusk makeup it’s time to reach for your boldest shades. Of course, you want something long-lasting for Valentine’s Day if you want your lip color to stay in place through all those smooches, so why not try our LiveGlam Lippie Club: KissMe?
