While this does allow for a more casual feel to things, the brighter light does mean a different approach to perfecting your make-up. QUICK FIX Multitask your way to success. Throw on a beauty mask to to address your needs and concerns while you lay in the bath or take a shower. Mask generally need to be on for about 10 to 15 minutes, which is also just about the amount of time it takes to have a good bath. FINISHING TOUCHES Your eyelashes are by far one of the most seductive features on your face. Give them the attention they need – make your lashes look luscious and thick by lining your upper waterline, follow with your first coat of mascara and then gently wiggle the second coat for a dramatic effect. TOP TENS To pull off a sexy sandal those tinkle toes need to be in the best shape possible. Apply your nail polish (including base and top coat) just before you do your lips and hair so that it has time to dry properly. The last thing you want is any smudging when you slip into your killer heels. LIP ACTION For kissable lips scrub the dead skin off using a combination of brown sugar and olive oil, massage the mixture onto the lips and wipe away with a warm facecloth. Follow with a nourishing lip balm before applying your preferred lip colour – especially if you are a fan of matte. MANE TRICK Creating curls for a romantic look is quite easy with the tools that are on the market right now. Cone-shaped wands and tongs require you to simply swirl section of the around the tool, and in no time you have bouncy curls. A soft curl can be a little trickier, so opt to create the curl using a large round brush and blow dryer. Always hold the brush in place, letting the hair cool down on the brush for the best results. Run your fingers through the curls to loosen them before you head out. Finish off with a light holding spray and weightless oil for shine.
