It’s easy for us to go a bit overboard with our makeup when it comes to the holidays; smokey eyes, bold lips. But, with Valentine’s day this weekend we feel you should take a different, more subtle approach to how you prep that lovable bod of yours. Plus, we all know this holiday involves three very important things: hearts, chocolates, and nudity. I have teamed up with my darling friend Christina Zayas of Le City Kitty to bring you beauty tips, makeup must haves, and fashionable finds to keep you in check from head to toe…. (in the nude).
Glossy Eyes: Forget everything you know about eye shadow because matte is out and gloss is in. There may be tons of options available for creating smoldering eyes, but powder lacks what lacquer can do. Make gloss boss by adding a dab of Glossier’s Balm Dotcom to your eyelids, from lash to brow. What’s more about this look is color is not required. The allure behind glossy lids is allowing the sheen of your natural skin tone to do the flaunting.
Perfectly pale pout: Your mouth was made for smooching, so lay off the rose or rouge lipstick to avoiding smudging and let your lips remain natural. To keep your pout kissably soft, apply a sugar scrub (combination of sugar and water) to slough off dry skin. I recommend applying a layer of your favorite nude lipcolor with a daub of Balm Dotcom to lock moisture in.
Tinted cheeks: The look of flush rosy cheeks is absolutely sexy. It gives the impression you just wrapped up romp sesh with your mate. Give them something to talk about by adding hint of pinky-peach blush. NARS has a collection of appropriately named shades like, Orgasm and Deep Throat, perfect for completing your natural naughty look.
Polished Nails: A pale nail is the new black. Let’s give our paws the attention they deserve by removing the intense nail colors and going with something a little understated; it screams sophistication. Essie is a world of opportunity, found at our fingertips. Head over to Essie.com to pick out your favorite nude hue; like February’s pick Fiji. Other pale polish recommendations include Sand Tropez, Mini How High, Tuck it in My Tux, & All Eyes on Nudes, and Ballet Slippers.
Barely-there Bras… and Underwear: Less is MOST DEFINITELY more. This year, wow yourself and/or your signifiant other with sheer confidence, and sheer undergarments. Urban Outfitters has a wide selection of modest & sexy lingerie, that’s affordable and fashionable.
Cheers to the sexiest holiday.
