Day To Night Preparation This Valentines Day

While all the stores are filled with chocolates, red roses and heart shaped everything we put together the ultimate guide for perfect preparation this Valentine’s Day. Less is more this season and the holy grail of makeup is to look like you’re not wearing any. Ella Baché looks into five tips to help you achieve that fresh complexion for a no make-up, make-up look that will leave you glowing.

Invest in Premium Quality Products

Investing in a good skin care regime will, in time, see your skin reap the benefits of a smooth and glowing complexion. At Ella Baché we recommend heading into your local salon for a skin diagnosis as this will give the therapist an in depth understanding of your skin and the products and treatments it will need to complement it.

Adopt a Skincare Regime

Once you have invested in the products it’s time to adapt a skincare regime.

Cleansing morning and night will assist in removing dirt, grime and dead skin cells on the surface layer of the skin. It’s the most important step in your skincare regime and it is imperative that you are using the right cleanser for your skin.

Exfoliating we recommend twice weekly as this will stimulate the skin cells keeping your complexion glowing and radiant.

Serum, the skincare superhero that will help to fight free radicals and ensure your skin has optimum hydration. There are many different types of serums on the market so we recommend you consult your skin therapist on the correct serum for you.

Moisturising after your serum application is a vital part in maintaining skin health, it will also add a soft and supple feel to your skin. Apply your moisturiser in circular motions on your face, neck and décolletage morning and night.

Skip the Foundation

There is nothing less natural than a thick foundation that clogs your skin’s natural complexion, opt for a BB cream that combines the benefits of a moisturiser, sunscreen and foundation in one tube.

Add Some Pink

Complimenting your BB cream with a lip to cheek crème stain will give you a rosy glow morning to night. Look for a crème base stain that provides hydration and protection with a soft long lasting colour.

It’s All in the Eyes

Super pumped up black lashes have their appeal but are a far cry from the natural look. Instead, try a long lasting lash tint. Whilst lash tints aren’t as thick as mascaras they do darken the lash and provide smudge proof definition for up to 4 weeks.

Eyebrows being a hot topic this season means skip that waxing appointment and let those brows grow! If this sounds like a daunting idea, invest in an eyebrow pencil suited to your hair colour with a comb and create a natural shape in the morning whilst combing your eyebrows in an upward motion.

With the skincare routine down pat and some simple make-up tips and tricks you’ll have that no make-up, make-up look that’ll leave everyone wondering where you got your glow.
