I’m excited about this post because, hopefully, its tips will result in some hot and heavy smooching, necking and even downright shagging with a special Valentine. So, will you get his attention this lovers’ holiday with a smouldering, smoky eye, a deep, dark vixenous lip, or both?
For smokey eyes, this is one of the best truly smouldering eye tutorials I’ve come across.
I love doing this look in black using M.A.C. Carbon Eyeshadow and M.A.C. Blacktrack Fluidline Eyeliner, which are both long lasting and the Carbon Eyeshadow leaves my eyes crease-free.
Remember though, you needn’t always use black eyeshadow. Be daring. Try dark green, midnight blue, even gold tones can work. Here’s a version of the look in Green as demonstrated by the fabulous Goss:
The goal is to create a fun, sexy eye that he can’t turn away from. Whatever color you choose, it will be a look sure to make Cleopatra proud.
For the lips, you would, of course, go nude or quite light if the eye is dramatic; however, if you want your pucker to do the purring all evening, keep the eyes neutral and put your pout to work with one of these beauties. Think: Vampire Red. Remember to swipe just a bit of Vaseline over your teeth to help keep the lipstick on your lips and off your teeth.
Two of The Beauty’s faves to get this look are: M.A.C.’s Ruby Woo and Chanel Rouge Noir.
