Beauty Genius: 4 Rules to Romance

Five romantic beauty tips for Valentine’s Day

From sensual perfume to the latest alluring make-up and hair looks, bring a touch of romance into your beauty routine this Valentine’s Day.

Romance is in the air – and not just because of Valentine’s Day. For a few seasons now, fashion designers have been smitten with a romantic beauty look that dominates catwalks this spring.

So whether you’re preparing for a hot date with that special someone or you simply want to join in with the most seductive style trend of the season, we’ve created a guide to getting the look of love in four easy steps.

1. Say it with scent

Scent has the power to stimulate memory and emotion, so it can be profoundly seductive and evocative. If you’re looking to create an atmosphere of romance, rose is an unbeatably heady fragrance. Try adding notes of sexy musk and fresh pear, to make it the scent equivalent of a romantic, flowing dress. But don’t go overboard – you don’t want it to overpower the mood.

2. Flush with blush

Dewy, clear skin and flushed cheeks – that’s the look of love. To create it yourself, start with a naturally fresh complexion courtesy of Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Day Cream RRP £29.99. Then blend on a full coverage foundation using the warmth of your fingertips to create a natural effect. Use a make-up sponge to apply a cream blusher to the apples of your cheekbones, blending downwards to create that love-struck glow.

3. Make your lips luxe

Your mouth is the most seductive part of your face – when someone’s flirting they can’t help but look towards your lips. Go for a softly flushed natural stain beneath a bit of gloss, or try a satin finish, so it looks like you’ve just bitten your lip, rather than a hard line of red or pink.

4. Bat your eyelashes

Bedroom eyes start with a flutter, courtesy of a little lash work. Keep your eyes soft and delicate with a single application of liquid eyeliner. Try a metallic colour such as turquoise to give your eyes an extra colour boost. Then use a volumising mascara – try brown for a lighter look – to frame your eyes with luscious lashes. A heavier layer on the top lashes can give you a sultry, sleepy look.

5. Get romantic, flowing locks

Romance doesn’t have to try too hard, so when it comes to hair look to loose styles and embrace effortless waves, as seen across recent catwalks.
Get the look with freshly washed hair and a touch of Pantene Pro-V Volume & Body Mousse Strong Hold RRP £2.99. Once it’s dry, preserve the look with a spritz of Pantene Pro-V Satin Smooth Hairspray RRP £2.99.

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
