February is our time to shine! We should take this opportunity to break out of those winter blues and show off our more glamourous side. It could be for a special date night with your Valentine or maybe a cocktail party with your girlfriends, step up your game and prepare to turn heads.
Don't let your outfit (or those amazing shoes) steal the spotlight. This year, let COVERGIRL and Pantene spark some creativity with your hair and makeup. Here are some great tips on how to get a dazzling look that will have your date mesmerized and the other ladies wondering how you did it. The best part, you don't need to hire a personal makeup or hair artist to still feel like a rockstar.
Start with a base: Every expert will agree that having happy and healthy skin can have you glowing in pictures. Moisturize before applying primer, and when you do apply, make sure it's a product that works with your skin type. TruBlend Primer concentrates on both the skin texture and the skin type - these formulations work with your skin to create a flawless canvas. After your face is prepped, apply TruBlend Liquid Foundation to cover any imperfections.
Say goodbye to winter blues: Nobody wants to look in the mirror and be reminded of winter. Use TruBlend Blush and Bronzer to contour your face and give you a natural sun-kissed glow.
Highlight your eyes: In the past, fashion made the mistake of being overly bold with eyeshadow colours, this season is all about being natural with your tones and blending colours. COVERGIRL has developed a colour scheme of roses, nudes and golds that are universally flattering with matte and shimmery finishes. Trunaked Shadow Palettes can be worn on their own for a soft smoky eye or combined to create a bold dramatic look. To finish, use Trunaked Eyeliner Duos, a line of pencils that glide on effortlessly to let you define your eyes and create countless luxe looks.
Give your lips a treat: Lips are one of your best accessories, make sure you treat them with care. Before, or even in place of applying lipstick (I know not everyone is a lipstick lady), use a moisturizer to keep your lips looking and feeling like a million bucks. Oh Sugar! Moisturizing Lip Treatment is infused with grapeseed oil, avocado butter and vitamins C & E. This incredible lip nourishment comes in ten tints of lightweight colour.
Let your h(air) flow: All professional hair stylists agree, hair is meant to be flowing and natural, not crispy and dry. The products you use in your hair should be as natural and healthy as the food you put in your body! Pantene's new Airspray is alcohol free, giving a light and fresh scent. Your date will have no problem running their fingers through your silky smooth hair.
I typically enjoy trying new makeup with new looks in my day-to-day so I am excited to see this new line of nude colours to work with. We can be glamorous without going Hollywood with CoverGirl and Pantene.
