Valentine’s Day Beauty Tips

As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, here are a few quick makeup tips for that perfect kissable evening out with your dream date.

No guy  wants to kiss his Valentine with a gallon of lip gloss or foundation on their face. Keep the lip stick or lip gloss and foundation to a bare minimum.

For Luscious Lips:

Step 1: Prep your lips by scrubbing them lightly with a lip exfoliator such as the one from Benefit Cosmetics, called LipScription.

Step 2: Apply a generous amount of the Benefit Pocket Pal, a liquid lip stain that will stain your lips a bright shade of cherry.

Step 3: After you have applied your lip stain, then apply the lip balm that comes with the LipScription in Step One. All lip products are from Benefit Cosmetics, and available at

For Dewey Skin:

Step 1: Apply your favorite moisturizer as usual.   Next, dot a few drops of your favorite foundation and use your fingers to blend into your face.   My favorite foundation is the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, which is available at Barney’s New York, Saks Fifth Avenue or  Set your foundation with a light dusting of translucent powder using a powder puff to the T-Zone area. 

Step 2: Use a rose tinted cream color blush, and apply to the apples of the cheeks and blend into your temples.

Step 3: For the eyes, I love to use a clear face gloss or lip gloss for the eye lid. You may also use a tiny bit of Vaseline to achieve the same look.   Apply a few coats of black mascara, and groom your brows.

    Based on your recommendation I went to Bloomingdales and bought this foundation and I LOVE IT! I have really sensitive skin (acne prone, peeling right now from Retin-A) and this foundation went on so well and didn’t irritate my skin at all.
    Thanks for the tip about the powder puff – I was using a big brush to set my foundation with poweder and the puff works so much better!
