Romance is in the air as Valentine’s Day is only 10 days away, the night of the year for you to look your very best for your partner! With your new lingerie and outfit in tow, it is only necessary to get your hair, make-up and skin perfect.
Plan your hairstyle in advance, as you may not need to wash it. If you are planning an up-do, many hairstyles work best with not freshly washed hair- don’t be scared of a tiny bit of grease! If you are using rollers, place them in before your make-up as they take about 2 hours to take full effect depending on your hair type. Whilst pampering the night before, why not take your time to give your hair a good treatment too, such as a hair mask. I love Moroccan Oil’s Intense Hydrating Mask, it leaves your hair feeling luxuriously soft like satin.
Preparation is key in order to let your skin be it’s best for date night, shave and buffer the night before in order to get super smooth legs. Doing it the night before enables your skin to replenish overnight, adding a light moisturiser whilst getting ready, making it extra smooth for a cosy night in. Plucking and shaping your eyebrows should also be done the night before to avoid any red blotchiness on the night, glowing under candle light.
A facial the night before will cleanse your skin, hydrating it and leaving it refreshed and glowing. Moisturise after this as it will leave your skin feeling silky and smooth. Apply moisturiser before any make- up and leave it to dry in order to form a barrier against all the layers of face make-up you are about to apply.
Don’t forget your nails! It is a busy night before Valentine’s Day and for some girls, nails always go forgotten about! Apply a coat while letting your hair mask work, staying productive on this long preparation process, or if you have time and the money, treat yourself to false nails or shellac which creates a gleaming shine and the affect of false nails without the hassle if they break.
Choosing the right make-up is a big decision if this is your first date. Don’t be too over powering, let your natural beauty shine through. Either enhance your eyes with a smoky defined eye shadow- not too heavy, with a natural looking lip, or a brightly coloured lip with natural glowing eyes.
Enjoy your night ladies!
