Whether you LOVE Valentine’s Day or not, whether you are in a super-delicious relationship with the perfect person or happily single or on the lookout for the perfect new amour, looking great on Valentine’s day can only be the best thing to do!
My favorite look for Valentine’s is fresh, radiant and glowy. Natural, but with a little bit of va-va-voom glam thrown in. It IS a special occasion after all.
So, let’s start with the fresh, dewy skin. I always get great compliments on my skin when I use a night cream with Retinol in it. One of the best is Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM Night Serum (For All Skin Types). A pure and potent concentration of microencapsulated Retinol at 1.5% helps to encourage the skin’s renewal process at night, and the moisturizing formula, infused with Vitamins C & E, suits all skin types. It enhances skin tone and texture and the look of fine lines and wrinkles is visibly reduced and skin looks renewed, refreshed, restored. If mild irritation or redness occur, use every other night until skin adjusts. Gradually build to nightly use, and enjoy those compliments rolling in!
My next little secret to enjoying comments of ‘you look so healthy and well-rested’ is a radiance-boosting primer under my foundation. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance creates a soft focus effect, thanks to the universal Pearl Tint which helps conceal the look of imperfections with a radiant finish. Dermatologist-tested and non-comedogenic.
I’m giving away ALL my secrets here but another sure-fire way to keep the spotlight on good ol’ ME on Valentine’s Day, is to sport the naturally flushed, pink-cheeked look that flatters ALL skin tones. My go-to? Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush is silky powder that imparts a flattering radiance to cheeks. The rich pigments add a perfect pop of color to your face – not too much, not too little. Cheeks are left with a warm, radiant-looking glow. Cue the fans!
And last, if you feel like a bit of added glamor, there is nothing wrong with a puff of glitter. It could be in your eyeshadow, your eye liner or your lip shine. For Valentine’s, I’m going with Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow – combining the perfect mix of pearl and glitter, this long-wearing sparkle eye shadow lavishes eyes with incredible luster and shimmer. There are loads of GORGEOUS shades but I’ll be wearing ‘Wanderlust’ – a nudey/pink glitter for eyes that ‘WOW”!
And now you’re all set to look perfectly deliciously radiant on Valentine’s Day, I’ll be introducing you to some other amazing products next, developed by the famous skin specialist, Dr. Dennis Gross.
