Whether you’re embarking on your first date, still enjoying the honeymoon phase or have been blissfully wedded for years, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year for showing off your best assets and flirting up a storm with your beau.
With a week before the big day, there’s plenty of time to plan your makeup look to create the ultimate romantic vibe. If you’re planning a big night out at a fancy restaurant, you’re going to want a dramatic look that ensures you’re the centre of attention all night long. We’ve sat down to have a chat with some of the top makeup artists in Dubai and got some great tips!
1. It’s all about the lashes
There’s nothing more seductive than batting your long, beautiful lashes across the dinner table and enjoying some intimate chat. Unfortunately, we’re not all blessed with the kind of lashes that can sweep a man off his feet! Luckily you can get eyelash extensions in Dubai that can give you the defined, voluminous lashes you’ve always wanted.
Eyelash extensions in Dubai are applied by an expert technician while you lie back and relax. It takes no longer than an hour and is fully customisable so you can have full control of your look. With a variety of lash lengths and degrees of curl, your technician can design any style of lashes. One popular technique with the glamorous ladies of Dubai and Abu Dhabi is to apply longer, more dramatic lashes to the outer edge of the eye to create an irresistible cat-eye look.
2. Draw attention to your lips
We’ve always been fans of a bold lip, and Valentine’s Day is the ideal time to break out your most attention-grabbing lippie. Makeup artists in Dubai and Abu Dhabi have so many techniques at their disposal for creating a truly dreamy pout, but our favourite dramatic look has to be the subtle ombre which creates the illusion of extra fullness and definition.
If you can’t make it into your local roots Salon for a full makeover, you can achieve a version of this look at home with a few everyday products. Simply line your lips with a plum shade, making sure to blend towards the centre of your mouth, then apply your favourite shade of deep red lipstick all over the lips. Once you’re happy with the shape and coverage, apply a touch of lighter lipstick in the centre to highlight. He won’t be able to take his eyes off you all night!
3. Make your eyes sparkle
You know what they say – the eyes are the window to the soul. Confident, alluring eye contact is just the thing to make sure he feels a real connection with you. To ensure you’re making the most of your assets, you need to pick a makeup look that really enhances your natural eye colour and gives you a sparkle.
Once you’ve got your eyelash extensions in Dubai, the next step is to find a complementary shadow. Follow the advice in this article from Elle to find the colours that will really make your eyes pop, and make sure you use a darker shadow in the crease and around the lashline to provide definition. There’s no need for a heavy liner, your eyelash extensions will give you a natural “lined” look (and you won’t have too much to clean up when his sweet-talking causes happy tears!)
