Valentine’s Day makeup should be all about the lips according to celebrity makeup artist Christopher Drummond. If you have the prefect date this Valentine’s Day but still need the perfect makeover to look your best, here are Christopher’s tips for the perfect Valentine’s Day look:

– To feel more romantic, use naturally scented lip products.

– If you are hesitant to wear bright red lipstick, wear a soft red gloss instead

– Valentine’s Day is all about kissing the one you love. Be sure to keep your lips hydrated with shea butter. This natural ingredient keeps your lips smoother longer than petroleum.

– Use your lip liner on top of lipstick. This helps to avoid the oblivious line around the lips when your gloss comes off. Lining after your lip color also allows for easier application and blendability.

– For fuller lips, add shimmer (try: apply Christopher Drummond Beauty Relache Ice Eye Shadow to the inner lips to create the illusion of fullness)

Christopher Drummond Beauty offers an all-natural, petroleum-free, soft red lip gloss called “Lucious” that is perfect to wear on Valentine’s Day. The gloss contains the essential oil of blood orange, which gives it a light, refreshing citrus scent. It also contains castor oil, coconut oil, soybean oil and vitamin E.

We saw these save-the-date announcements and totally fell in love! Handkerchiefs can put a creative, elegant spin on your upcoming wedding and they’re so easy to make at home.

Items needed:

1) Handkerchiefs

2)  Scissors

3)  Iron templates

4)  An iron

The trickiest part is reversing the letters on the template so they don’t iron-on backwards.  Once you write your save-the-date announcement in a Word or any other text-edit document, go to print and specify that you want the image printed as “mirror”.  This is usually located under “preferences” in your print menu.

Once you have the text printed on the iron template, place the image where you like it on the hankie.  Make sure it’s straight and then iron it on.  It’s that easy!

If you’re not the crafty type, then you can also buy save-the-date hankies at Lucky Luxe.  Click here for more details.

Teasing, mousse and a ton of hair spray – this is how women in the 80’s achieved the coveted “big hair” look. 

  • According to celebrity hairstylist Philip Pelusi, who is well-known for his signature Volumetric®   haircutting technique, women today still crave volume but don’t necessarily want the “big hair” look that is outdated and requires too much gel, spray and teasing.
     
    Here are Philip Pelusi’s tips for achieving volume in 2010 – without looking like you are in the wrong decade:
     
    Use a volumizing conditioner and shampoo: Volumizing products (such as the P2 InCrease Volumizze Shampoo and Conditioner) are formulated not to weigh hair down. Be careful to apply conditioner only to ends
  • Give Your Roots a Boost: Apply a root lifter before blowdrying, from midshaft to root (try Mod di Phy Define Root Lift Volumize Spray) 
  • Blow dry for “oomph”: Lift sections of hair toward the sky as you blow-dry, directing hot air toward your scalp 
  • Don’t blow-dry upside-down: To keep volume moderized, do not flip your head over 
  • Back-brush instead of tease: Instead of teasing your tresses with a comb, use a flat-backed brush, which will damage your hair less 
  • Mist hairspray – Heavy hairspray is more likely to weigh hair down instead of give it volume. Spritz hairspray in to the air and walk through it (try Mod di Phy Fluid Shaping & Finishing Spray)
