  Charm your Valentine with a fresh, new, make up look!
  Valentine´s day justifies the use of pink. Pink can be a tricky color to use in make up, but in my Valentine´s day look it is used very subtly. Pale hues are used to maintain the cool spirit Imbolc is all about.

Love is in the air, and I wanted to create a look that emphasizes that tingling feeling of having butterflies in your stomach when you first fall in love with someone.

With that special sparkle in your eye, and rosy cheeks, you can look and feel like a teenager all over again! 

  The recipe:

1. Eyes: apply light pink onto the inner two thirds of the moving eyelids. Medium grey onto the remaining outer third of the lids, blending carefully towards the edges to make it look natural. Curl lashes and apply one or two coats of mascara. No eyeliner is needed for this look. The idea is to look soft, natural and rosy-cheeked.

2. Cheeks: use pale pink blush, preferably with some shimmer, onto the apples of the cheeks. You will want to achieve the look of fresh, young, and loveable.

3. Lips: Moisten lips well with lip balm, then apply a thin coat of cool pink lipstick. Or use lipgloss. The lips should look fresh and luscious, but not too made up. The overall focus should still be in the eyes.

  It is a good idea to add one or two pink accessories to your outfit to make the whole look well-put-together. As much or as little as suits your personal style.

  Voilá! You´re all set to sweep your loved one off his feet! I´m sure he will appreciate the effort, and a little change from the ordinary is always refreshing. Enjoy!

A big kiss to my Valentine!
