It’s February! We are more than half way through what can sometimes be a dreary time called Winter. Now is a better time than ever to take the opportunity to dress up and show off your glamorous side. Whether it’s a special date night with your Valentine, your birthday or an awards party night with your friends, step up your game and prepare to turn heads. It’s your time to shine!
For me, personally, February is my birthday month! It is also my son’s birthday month. Plus, it is also Valentine’s Day; not that we celebrate that, but still. Quite often you will find me breaking out my best number during the month of February, getting all dolled up and ready for a night on the town.
However, I can’t say for sure that I will get that special night out any time soon. All for good reason though. With the baby due in 28 days, and given how far away we live from our family it isn’t all that often that we can sneak in the opportunity for a date night. So for this year, we may have to transform our annual February “night out on the town” to a “date night at home on the couch”. That still doesn’t mean that I can’t use that as an excuse to show off my glamorous side.

Do you have an upcoming event that you will be attending this month? If so, you will want to check out these tips on how to get a dazzling look that not only you, but everyone will adore.
Start with a base: Every expert agrees that having happy and healthy skin can have you glowing in pictures. Moisturize before applying primer, and when you do apply, make sure it’s a product that works with your skin type. TruBlend Primer concentrates on both the skin texture and the skin type- these formulations work with your skin to create a flawless canvas. After your face is prepped, apply TruBlend Liquid Foundation to cover imperfections.
Say goodbye to winter blues: Who wants to look in the mirror and be reminded it’s winter? Use TruBlend Blush and Bronzer to contour your face and give you a natural sun-kissed glow.
Highlight your eyes: In the past, celebrities sometimes made the mistake of being overly bold with their eyeshadow colours, this season it’s all about natural tones and blending colours. COVERGIRL has developed a colour scheme of roses, nudes and golds that are universally flattering with matte and shimmery finishes. trunaked Shadow palettes can be worn on their own for a soft smoky eye or combined to create a bold dramatic look. To finish, use trunaked Eyeliner Duos, a line of pencils that glide on effortlessly to let you define your eyes & create countless luxe looks.
Give your lips a treat: Lips are one of your best accessories, make sure you treat them with care. Before, or even in place of applying lipstick, use a moisturizer to keep your lips looking and feeling like a million bucks. Oh Sugar! Moisturizing Lip Treatment is infused with grapeseed oil, avocado butter and Vitamins C & E. This incredible lip nourishment comes in ten tints of lightweight colour.
Let your h(air) flow: All professional hair stylists agree, hair is meant to be flowing and natural, not crispy and dry. The products you use in your hair should be as natural and healthy as the food you put in your body! Pantene’s Airspray is alcohol free, giving it a light, fresh scent. Your Valentine’s Day date will have no problem running their hands through your silky smooth hair.
