As Valentine’s Day approaches, it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to some new beauty goodies. I am a big advocate for getting dressed up whenever the opportunity arises, and engage in a little pampering. Mally Roncal of Mally Beauty has four beauty looks to choose from. Here they are, direct from Mally!
Pretty Pink Lips:
A pink pout looks good on every skin tone and every age. If you want to choose a light pink, try the Mally Beauty Lip Defender Volumizing Lip Gloss in Pink ($29) that creates plumpness to your lips. If you want a more intense pink, try the Mally Beauty Lip Magnifier in Fierce, a bright fuchsia. No matter which pink you choose, start by exfoliating your lips with the Mally Beauty Perfect Prep Lip System ($35) that conditions the lips so they look and feel soft and smooth throughout the day.
Smokey Emerald Eyes:
A smokey eye doesn’t have to be just gray or black – play with color! The hottest color this year – Emerald – is just the trick. Use the Mally Beauty City Chick Smokey Eye Kit in Central Park ($40), follow the easy-to-use palette that includes all of the steps to creating an intense smokey eye.
Black Liquid Liner and Red Lips:
A sultry eye and lip are the perfois combination for a night out with the girls. Start by applying the Mally Beauty Professional Ink Liner ($23.64) and creating a slight wing tip at the corners of your eyes.
To find the right rouge lip to match, try Mally Beauty’s Red Lip Kit ( $35) that comes in three shades: Cool Red, Neutral Red and Warm Red.
Create that glow, by using a bronzer that is 1-2 shades darker than your natural skin tone. Apply it to the following areas: concentrate on the perimeter of your face and start behind the ear, working down along the jawline. Then, go across the top of the forehead (along the hairline). Lightly sweep across the forehead, bridge of the nose, cheeks, and tip of the chin. To prevent your face from looking “muddy” or “dirty”, make sure that you also apply a great pink blush on the apples of the cheeks, and a sweep of highlighter on the tops of the cheekbones. Try Mally Beauty Believable Bronzer ($40). Next, apply a shimmery champagne eyeshadow all-over eyelids.
And now for the contest details!
