Vamp Up Your Valentine’s Day Makeup!

Valentine’s Day 2015 coincides with the highly anticipated opening of the film Fifty Shades of Grey. So, why not enhance your seductive power with your eye makeup? You’ll need to master the art of making your makeup last during and after every erotic scene. After all Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do something a little more sensual with your makeup.


If your V-Day plans include getting all dolled up, sexy eyes are the way to go.


Bedroom Eyes

Typically when sex-proofing your makeup, you don’t want your eyes to run.  If the label says “waterproof,” “smudge proof,” or “sweat proof,” you’re going to want to invest. You’ll need to layer your eye makeup products for a bold, longest-lasting smoky eye. Start out by applying an eyeshadow base like Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the eyes. Next apply a matte eyeshadow closest to your skin tone all over the eye. After that, layer a shimmery eyeshadow color similar to the matte one just on the lid and on the brow bone. Then take your main smoky color and with a thick eyeshadow brush like MAC#217 and apply it in a V shape to the outer corners of the eye and in the crease.  Just like your wedding day mascara and eyeliner, you’ll want quality waterproof cosmetics like Make Up For Ever’s Aqua liners. They have real staying power and are available in bold colors. MAC gel liner in Blacktrack is a must and their Naked Pigment shadows are amazing! The ultimate must have to transform your look from soft and innocent to sultry this V-Day is Makeup Forever’s “Give In To Me.” It’s a collection of alluring shades inspired by the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. I recommend protecting your seductive smoky eye with a setting spray.
