I didn't realize Valentine's Day was coming up SO soon until a friend reminded me this past weekend. Even though it falls on a Sunday, the nice thing is that us Canadians have a long weekend, which means extra time to celebrate and relax with your loved one(s).
As much as we love doing a smokey look, guys hardly appreciate the effort. Why not save the glamour for a girls night out and go for a subtle, elegant look this Valentine's Day? It will go perfectly with what ever you or your beau may have planned for the day (even rock climbing), and you won't feel out of place or uncomfortable.
It's difficult trying to motivate yourself to put makeup on when it's minus 10 (or lower) outside. The only thing you can think about is making sure to bundle up with a warm scarf and mitts. Whenever I'm stuck in a rut, I try something out of the ordinary to break my everyday makeup routine and it really helps!
As women, we are lucky because we can use makeup to help us feel more confident or simply use it as a tool to help us look awake, even if we're not. I came up with this peachy-silver smokey eye a few weeks ago and it complements winter and my new hair colour.
