Makeup ideas for Valentine’s Day

Waiting for an occasion to dress up and look pretty? Well, there's one special day coming up this month - the Valentine's Day.

Simmi Ghai, make-up artist and founder of Xpressions salon, suggests three unique styles of makeup that will help you experiment with a new look for the special day.

There is nothing better than spending a day as special as Valentine's with your loved one. Try one of these looks for the evening and leave your man bedazzled:

For a soft, romantic look
Create this look by curling your lashes and applying either black or brown mascara. Then, apply a very pale, sheer pink blush on your cheekbones. The idea is to create an accent of pink to give your face a lift so keep it as light as possible. Dab some gloss on your lips and you're good to go.

For a vivid, sexy look
The key to this look lies in enhancing your eyes. To do this, you will have to add individual lashes to your lash line. Begin by applying mascara to your natural eyelashes. Then add the false lashes along the rim of your eyes. You could also add some shimmer shadow to your lids for a slightly glitzy look. Apply a basic blush on your cheeks and colour your lips with a deep Bordeaux red lipstick or rich, berry lip stain.

For a lovely, smouldering look
This one's an out-and-out romantic look, just perfect for an occasion such as Valentine's Day. Go for a black eye shadow and apply it evenly across your eye lids, lining the charcoal-like black towards the edges. You could also apply it under the eyes to make the look more appealing. But do make sure that before you apply colour, your eyelid is gently powdered with a neutral powder. Apply mascara on the lashes and use a deep ruby lip colour for a matte look on the lips.
