The perfect Valentine’s Day is surrounded by romance, combined with alluring scents, enticing lingerie, stimulating aphrodisiacs topped off with the sexiest wardrobe of flirty hair, polished nails and sultry makeup. A glance is all that is needed to let your sweetheart know your desires with the following tips for smoky eyes and pouty lips.
As the last article and what could be the most important in a three part series to look your best for your hot Valentine’s Day date, we look to actress Jennifer Lawrence and her sultry make she wore to the recent 85thAcademy Awards Nomination Luncheon for goddess inspiration.
The last two in the Valentine’s Day series featured hair and nails, and each are imperative to pulling off the complete sensual look, the eyes are the window to the soul and oftentimes thought to be the sexiest part of the woman, which is why, a smoky eye, not too dark, begs to be noticed.
The sultry makeup can be worn day or night and a smoky eye doesn’t need to be completed with black or dark gray shadows; plums and browns also create sexy eyes. For a softer smoky eye perfect for daytime, use a darker shade on the lower lid, a medium shade in the same color family at the crease and a lighter eye shadow on the brow bone and just a touch in the corner near the tear duct to add drama.
Line the eye slightly heavier on the top lid with a brown or plum, darker for nighttime, and in the water line and slightly under it on the lower lid. Use the darker shadow over both applications of liner. Apply false eyelashes or just a few individual ones at the edge of the eyelid to create a flirtatious look for Valentine’s Day. A more dramatic smoky/cat eye is detailed in the video above.
