IN OR OUT?
So, Valentine’s day is looming and there’s two ways this can go. WHAT am I going to wear for my date night…or…WHAT am I going to wear for my mate night? We don’t care whether you’re a lover or a hater this V-Day, there are no excuses for bad garms. So, if it’s straight chilling with your squad for your #PLTMateNight or getting dolled up and ready to go for your #PLTDateNight, here’s your guide to looking killer!
So it’s you and BAE. You’ve got a hot date planned and you want to look on point. What’s your go to? Say yes to the dress this Valentine’s day, because nothing says hot like turning up in something figure-hugging. Add some killer heels, but keep the jewellery simple, because you want all eyes on you!
If you want to do something a little different then the dress, make ‘em blush in some silk palazzo’s and a bodysuit. Or mix it up with a pair of wide leg trousers with some extra detailing, like a hidden buckle! Don’t forget your Date Night must have – HEELS!
Obviously you’ve got outfit choices for days, but we’ve gotta make sure you’re looking selfie ready at all times with some babe’in hair and makeup. Thankfully Lookfantastic have all you need…A sexy red lip, power brows and lashings of mascara are the ultimate killer combination this Valentine’s.
Let the drama come from the brows and lip. For the base, keep it simple with a gorgeous dewy base. Choose a lightweight foundation for coverage with a natural finish. Touch up with concealer and setting powder if needed.
For beautifully big eyes in no time at all, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler before applying your mascara in large brush strokes. Add a touch of liquid eyeliner to define the eyes if you want a bolder finish.
Power brows define the eyes and frame the face and we think no look is complete without them. The Hi Impact Brow Palette in this month’s Lookfantastic Beauty Box is a beauty essential. Using the angled brush included in the palette, follow the natural arch of your brow and use the powder to define the shape and fill in any sparse areas. Lots of small strokes will give the best power brow finish.
Finish the look with a slick of bold red lipstick. Don’t be scared off by the colour, just follow our simple tips.
1. Always use a lipliner before applying your lipstick to stop the colour from bleeding.
2.Following the lines of your liner, use a lip brush to apply your lipstick before gently kissing your lips together to get an even finish. Talk about a perfect pout!
We know you don’t need a date for V-Day. Forget the hype and say “see yaaaa” to romance and get cosied up with your best girls and have a giggle. Mate Nights are all about your pals whether you go out or stay in, but let’s face it, there’s nothing more fun than getting in your PJ’s and having a gossip with your gals while you wait for your BAE to arrive…and by BAE we mean the pizza delivery guy. Duh.
It ain’t a slumber party without a little pamper session. HQ Hair to the rescue…
Hollywood glow? Give me some of that! The GLAMGLOW Youth Mud Face Mask is perfect for a night in with the gals. A gentle ‘tinglexfoliate’, the mask will leave you with that Hollywood look in just 10 minutes.
