How To Get A Fresh V-Day Makeup Look When You’re In A Hurry

Pretty, quickly

There are moments in life when you have a finite amount of time to do your makeup for some event or occasion, with people yelling at you to pick up the pace in person or via text. Valentine’s Day seems like one of those days when you should have all the time in the world to plan the perfect look. But let’s be real, sometimes you end up dilly-dallying and forget about your face until the last minute. That’s when you gotta hustle. Check out our speedy tutorial for a relaxed look that still wows to try for your night out.

Frame the face


Brows are arguably the most important part of the face these days and with the array of brow products available – from pencils to powders to gels and pomades – there are endless methods to create the perfect brow for you. We suggest trying the Diorshow Brow Styler with its ultra-fine tip for lightly defined brows to create a clean, natural look.

Eyes wide open


Whether you’re going for a sweeter look or a sultry one, the lashes should not be forgotten. Add some volume with the Pixi LashLift 188 Mascara, a nifty two-in-one product that comes with a volumising brush and a precision brush to get those lashes just right. Smudge-proof and long-wearing, it’ll be sure to last through the night with only a minute’s effort!

Flawless finish 


No matter what your shade is, or your skin type, every girl looks for a smooth, poreless complexion when it comes to foundation. Luckily for you, we’ve found one that really works. Check out the Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation that comes in a myriad of shades that leaves you fresh-faced and flawless, all day long.

Cheek to cheek 


Said to complement every skin tone, the NARS Orgasm Blush/Highlighter Duo Mini is a lovely product to use for this quick little look. Give your cheeks a radiant flush with a generous sweep of highlighter that will have you looking healthy and sun-kissed.

Perfect pout 


One last thing to finish off this no-makeup makeup look: Fenty Gloss Bomb. This product promises juicy, full lips that make them feel as good as they look. The shade Glow is a rose gold nude that has been formulated to look amazing on everyone, creating lips that are wonderfully kissable on such a romantic day.
