Things To Do… If You’re Single on Valentine’s Day

14 02 2009

 Go out and buy some of the steamiest lingerie you can find, complete with whatever you love best- wild animal print, sweet ruffles and lace, or some saucy vinyl pieces. Wear it, and your smile will have a little extra.

 Dress up for the occasion. Paint a glittery pink heart on your cheek, wear fluttery false lashes, slip into your favorite jeans.

 Paint your tips and toes heart-stopping candy-apple red. (I did this today!) Flash them at everyone you see.

 Call someone near and dear to your heart, mother/sister/best friend, and tell them how much they mean to you.

 Spend the day doing something just for you. Begin a quilt, go to the zoo, ride up and down the mall escalators, paint something lovely. Anything that makes you happy, do it with gusto.

 Finish your fantastic day with a luxurious bubble bath and your favorite foods.  Being single only means that you haven’t met the love of your life yet, and therefore have more opportunity to flirt shamelessly with any and all who cross your path!

Nerd tidbit: Wearing red makes men automatically think you’re more attractive. Hmmm…

Gussy Up

I generally don’t wear anything on my face day-to-day besides a few dots of foundation and maybe mascara, if only because it’s no good sweating all your makeup into a muddy mess while wrestling with your horse or just running around. However, if I’m going somewhere or just have some extra time, I like to play around a little with bright colors, glitter and liquid liner- and though I can’t pull it off, I’m in love with the beautiful makeup of Russian singer Doe Deere! Not to mention her incredibly catchy music, but that’s another story.

She provides over 30 in-depth tutorials for stand out looks like the ones below, from fairly simple to create to three-hour productions.  She’s also an admitted false lash aficionado, which I admit unabashedly to being, though it adds about a half-hour to putting on my face. Yes, I’m clumsy.

Absolutely incredible, no? Another place I like to browse for slightly more wearable but still highly unique makeup looks is Temptalia. This girl posts detailed pictues and gives names and reviews of all the products she uses! Every look I’ve seen her post is polished and very well done.

So that’s my resolution for this week; even if only my mare’s around to appreciate it, I’m going to go a little bit wild with my makeup!
