The most romantic day of the year is almost here. We’ll skip over the romantic origins of Valentine’s Day and move right into the contemporary styles for this special day. This year Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday, so you may have to run to a romantic dinner straight after work. Depending on how much time you have to get ready, the Renarda Joy team has the following tips for you:
Got 5 minutes to spare? Apply black mascara, a red lip stain (or a matte lipstick tapped on with the fingertips) and a bright, pink-toned blush.
20 minutes to spare? Apply full foundation, all of the products listed above in the five-minute palette and highlighter on the cheekbones. You can also try sweeping a little bronzer around the lash lines for a warm, glowing finishing touch.
And if you’re not in a hurry? Apply all of the above, plus half-lash strips, along with a black liner on top to conceal the lash seam. And for that extra pop of color a full-on red lip could work as well.
