Love is in the air and whether you are sharing Valentines Day with your loved one or hanging out with your BFF’s, this is the one day of the year to really make an effort. If you have a hot date, you need to ensure they have eyes only for you. Preparation is key and with Lottie London’s range of cool and quirky accessories you will be the belle of the ball in no time at all.
We bring you our top five tips to ensure all eyes are on you this Valentines Day, and beyond.
1. Lengthen your Lashes
Begin by gently heating your Lottie London’s Eyelash Curler (AED 50) for a few seconds with a hairdryer to allow your lashes to curl easily and hold their shape for longer. Pinch the lashes at the root and move along the length, making pulse-like squeezes as you go. The cushioned pads on Lottie London’s Eyelash Curler prevent any dragging and pulling of the eyelashes and offer a lovely, natural curl. Finish with lashings of mascara, three coats is a safe bet for a #SelfieReady finish.
*Tip – While your mascara is still wet, comb through with an eyelash comb to keep the lashes lookingsuper-long and separated.
2. Ensure your Brows are ‘On Point’
Your eyebrows frame your face and offer an instantaneous lift. Arguably the most important facial feature, defined brows can instantly give a polished to perfection look, perfect for eye gazing on V-Day. The key to groomed brows lies in the tweezer itself. An angled tip, like the Lottie London Brow Babe Tweezers (AED 45)gives precision and will make grooming and shaping your brows completely effortless.
*Tip – Always tweeze after bathing. The warm water will open your follicles and soften the hairs, making it less painful to remove those strays.
3. Add some Adornments
Metallic body transfers are an instant conversation starter, as well as offering an of-the-moment fashion update. Stand out from the crowd this Valentines Day with Lottie London’s Treasure Tats (AED 69). Simple to use, select your Treasure Tat of choice, remove the clear backing and place onto the skin. Wet the backing paper and hold for twenty seconds. When you slide away the paper, your Treasure Tat will be revealed.
*Tip – Layer multiple styles and wear alongside complementing jewellery for a sassy stacked-up look.
4. Use the correct Tools of the Trade
Once you have decided on your all-important make-up look, chosen your colour scheme and settled ona gloss or matte effect lip, the tools that you use can make all the difference in creating a professional and long-lasting look. Lottie London’s newly launched make up brushes are vegan friendly with ultra-soft bristles. They pick up the perfect amount of product and the handles are chunky enough to give a non-slip grip. Studio Star (AED 59) is a stippling brush, ideal for applying your foundation flawlessly with a streak-free finish. Buff and Blend (AED 59) is perfect for applying powder to the face and evening out any base imperfections. Contour Queen (AED 59)is a flat edged brush, fantastic for contouring and creating killer cheekbones in an instant.Perfectly Precise (AED 39) is a small eyeshadow brush, used to create intricate, high-impact eye looks.
