For Valentine’s day, your next date night, or just a night out on the town with your girls- we’ve got you covered! I’ve teamed up with pro makeup artist Lindsay Menter of Menter artistry to bring you her 5 tips to achieving that sultry romantic look we all crave! Keep reading for all the dreamy deets.
5 Essentials To a Romantic Look.
1. A Candlelit glow Lindsay swears by a dewy base to give your skin that irresistible romantic glow. To achieve this look Lindsay recommends MAC strobe cream as primer underneath your favorite foundation and then finishing your look with Ofra cosmetics Highlight in Rodeo Drive.
2. Earth toned eye shadows Lindsay starts with matte neutral shades to build depth and dimension. Once she has created the desired shape, Lindsay begins to build in shimmery warm tones in the center of the lid that compliment the color of your eyes. For my look she started with MAC single pan shadows in Vanilla, Soft Brown and Saddle and added in Dazzlelight, Gleam, and Honeylust.
3. A Bold lip I could not believe Lindsay uses a single palette to create so many different lip looks for her various clientele. The Anastastia Beverly Hills Lip Palette ($48) can be used to customize your perfect shade. A great drug store dupe is the Maybelline 8-pan lip color palette ($9) at Ulta. Lindsay suggests going bold for your big night out this year.
For big bedroom eyes consider applying false lashes. Lindsay’s favorites are Frends lashes in D-Wispy. No falsies, no problem! our favorite mascara is Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara.
5. A Bronzed complexion MAC Refined Golden and MAC Give Me Sun are top bronzers in our book. To achieve a sultry warm glow she uses Ben Nye Banana powder to set foundation (Thank you Kim K) and completes the look by dusting MAC bronzer along the hairline, cheekbones and outer edges of the face, keeping the center of the face light, bright and highlighted.
Hope these 5 tips help make your next night out extra beautiful. Also, If you are in the San Diego area be sure to check out Menter Artistry for a Valentines day makeover by Lindsay herself! Mention this post to get $14 off your service. Reserve your spot today!
