Look Hot for Valentines Day - 10 Best Makeup Tutorials for Date Night


Valentine's Day became associated with true love and romance way back in the Middle Ages when "courtly love" was practiced by eligible bachelors of the time. By the 1700s, Valentine's Day had evolved into how we celebrate the occasion today--presenting cards, flowers, chocolates and other sweet gifts to our significant other. Valentine's Day is also that special time when we want to look as hot and sexy as possible for our lover, boyfriend, husband or maybe even someone who doesn't yet know how we feel about them. It's also a day where we can wear as much boldly passionate red as we want--red lips, red cheeks, dark red eyeshadow and red roses tucked into flaming red hair. Sounds fun, sexy and exciting, doesn't it?

Want to Look Like a Hot Goth on Valentine's Day?

Bloody Kisses

Nothing looks more compelling than a set of dark burgundy lips against a background of lily-white, alabaster skin. Before applying gothic lipstick, outline your lips with a matching lip liner, either liquid or pencil, to make your lips appear fuller and even more dramatic. When filling in your lips with lipstick, using a more expensive brand of lipstick will really make a difference as to smoothness and staying power. Apply a sheer coating of black lip gloss over any color of lipstick (except black, of course) to create a unique shade that is totally yours. You could also just wear black lip gloss alone to give you an ever more ruthlessly romantic look.

Glitter, Blush and Nails

Anywhere you read about goth beauty tips, you will find the cardinal rule of applying goth make-up --no blush ever! Blush is meant to give color to your face. This is exactly the opposite effect goth makeup wants to accomplish. Paint fingernails a black, deep choking blue, dark, boggy green or bloody red for the full effect. Don't forget the glitter or pixy dust which you can buy at any craft store. Sparkling slightly under a full moon in the middle of the night will give you that glamorous, otherworldly appearance that will bring out the sexy vampire in any man!
