Valentine’s is a day about love, laughter, chocolate, little black dresses, and—of course—nailing the perfect makeup look. February 14th is the perfect excuse to break out those red and pink lipsticks, eye shadows, and blushes, which makeup artists will be doing plenty of as they give their clients the perfect romantic look.
Here are three Valentine’s Day looks your clients are going to love.
A bold red lip paired with a winged liner is a classic and timeless look. Red is the universal colour of love, which makes it the perfect hue for your client’s lips on Valentine’s Day. This look is ideal for a client who wants to feel glamorous while dining at a fancy restaurant or attending an event with their beau.
You can start by applying a foundation that is perfectly suited to your client’s skin tone. Add a hint of rosiness to her cheeks and contour directly under the cheekbones with a darker tone to really make your client’s features pop. Carefully apply black liquid liner to the upper lash line, creating a delicate wing on the outer ends. To complete the eyes, brush on several light coats of black mascara. Finally, finish the look with a coat of red lipstick.
There’s nothing more romantic than soft pink hues for Valentine’s Day. For your clients who want a soft and sweet feel that still makes a statement, a rose-inspired look is perfect. This look is foolproof for a dinner date, romantic date at home, or any Valentine’s Day surprise.
You’ll want to create the perfect base by applying primer and a semi-matte foundation. For a dewy complexion, use a cream blush instead of a powder on the apples of her cheeks and blend upwards towards the line of her hair. So your client will be glowing all night, apply a modest amount of highlighter to the tops of her cheekbones.
When you’re working on your client’s eyes after makeup school, be careful not to go overboard with pink. Use soft neutral colours with pink undertones and blend them well. Finish off with warm grey or black eyeliner and several generous coats of mascara, or a set of falsies. To perfect her pout, opt for a pink that is suited to your client’s skin tone in a luminous shade.
For your low-key clients who have a bohemian vibe, a natural look is the way to go. In the beauty industry, natural doesn’t necessarily mean bare faced, and there’s plenty you can do after makeup courses in Hamilton to enhance your client’s natural beauty without going overboard.
For clients who want to embrace their raw beauty, you should focus on making their skin look fresh and glowing. The first step to this look is creating an even complexion with beautifully bronzed cheeks and a hint of blush. Accentuate her face’s bone structure by sculpting her brows and filling them in to add more definition if necessary. Framed by perfect brows, make her eyes stand out even more with several coats of mascara. Then, moisturize her lips with a kissable tinted lip balm and finish with setting spray so the look will last through whatever the day brings her way.
