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.

best mineral powderI used to be a big fan of Bare Escentuals mineral powder because of its easy application and great coverage.  But, then I began to experience dryness (even though I have oily skin) and more lines around the eye area.  After speaking with beauty specialists I learned that  the product was known to exacerbated  the look of pores and wrinkles!  — terrible for the middle-aged women the company was targeting.

So what now?  I loved the coverage of a mineral powder but didn’t want the chalky look of Bare Escentuals.  I wasn’t ready to completely give up, so I decided to try Sheer Cover – which you may have seen on infomercials.  To my surprise the product was great.  It eliminated shine and had great coverage, but didn’t dehydrate the skin.  In fact, the intro kit even included an SPF-15, anti-aging moisturizer to be worn underneath the power.

Apparently Sheer Cover blends with your skin’s natural oils for perfect coverage.  The product is 100 percent natural, infused with skin soothing botanicals, natural sun protection and anti-oxidant green tea to help protect your skin from the visible signs of premature aging.

If you too are committed to your mineral powder but need more hydration, try Sheer Cover ($29.95).  You may just be converted.  To learn more and/or purchase the product, click here.
