Valentine’s day is right around the corner and I think it’s a great day to have some fun with your hair and make up. I probably wouldn’t wear my hair this way for date night but I think it’s a cute way to celebrate Valentine’s day during the day whether you have a valentine or not . In my mind it’s a day to wear a ton of pink or red. I’ve never been a huge pink girl but it’s certainly a romantic color and there is no better day than Valentine’s day for that.
Grab a foam hair doughnut in your hair color. This is the easiest way to make a ballerina bun. If you have never used this before you can check out this youtube tutorial. She uses a sock but I think it’s a bit more challenging. I used the wide tooth comb and clear elastic to make a high and tight ponytail and rolled the doughnut down my hair. I secured it flat with bobby pins and used the powder brush to create some wisps around my face. I typically sweep the brush over my hair towards my face so it allows the wisps to fall without pulling any longer hair out of the bun. I also don’t want the bun too tight so I pulled on pieces of my hair to loosen them up a bit and give the bun some texture. Finish with hairspray.
Grab a pink or red neck scarf and wrap it around your hair twice before securing it into a bow slightly to the side.
I used a neon pink blush for my eye shadow up and blush. This one is by ELF cosmetics. Cheap as they come! For my eyes I dabbed the blush in the outer corners of my eye and then hit the center with the shimmery gold shadow.
Hope this gives you some inspiration for Valentine’s day hair and make up!
