Ok so it’s here guys, it’s Valentine’s Day on Sunday! No matter if you love it or hate it, you can’t avoid it, its here once every year and I think out of all the holidays this one gets the most varied response. It’s the marmite of all holidays I’d say! Still, I thought I’d share with you my valentines inspired look. To give all you date-goers a little help when it comes to dressing up this Valentine’s.
Of course with it being Valentine’s Day I went with one of my favourite red dresses that I own. I actually bought this dress for my graduation party when leaving performing arts school and through every house change, clear out, and wardrobe re-vamp. This little red dress has stayed a favourite of mine. Just look at it, it’s so simple yet the sequins & beads give just enough detail to really lift up the top half of the dress and catch the eye.
I adore everything about the fit of this dress, the sweetheart styled bandeau is extremely flattering, especially on small boob’ed people like myself. This is helped by the boning on the top half, helping give structure to the garment whilst accentuating my smaller waist. The floaty skirt makes me feel like a princess. Pretty much what every girl should feel like on Valentine’s Day surely! If you can twirl it in, it counts as being a princess dress by my standards.
One thing I was surprised by with this ASOS beauty was how lovely the colour complimented fair skin. I think with pale skin red is a bold move and can sometimes come off a little too dramatic, that’s certainly not the case here.
For my make up I stuck to the red theme I had going for Valentine’s and using my go-to red lipstick in the shade Ruby Woo I accentuated those lips, kissing here I come!
I kept my foundation light and my eyes simple with a little dark brown in the crease and champagne pop shimmer on the lids. I stayed away from harsh contouring and instead gave myself a little more highlighter than bronzer, just to stick to this pale almost English-rose Valentine’s look. I added black eyeliner to the outer ends of my eyelids to make my eyes appear wider and create that loveable doe-eyed appearance.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my Valentine’s inspired look. Whatever your plans are this Valentine’s I hope you have a wonderful day!
