Makeup TIPS: Valentine's Day - Prep Clients for the Big Night!

Celebrity hairstylist and Senior Stylist at Warren Tricomi, Marc Mena breaks down his top Valentine’s Day hair trends to match makeup looks using glō·minerals for Valentine’s Day!
Red Hot
Add a little spice to your client's look with a pop of red to her lips, cheeks or nails. Never out of style, a bright red lipstick is sure to vamp up any look. Glide on Lipstick in Siren for standout lips that will be sure to mesmerize your client's date. If your client is more of a gloss gal, Poppy is the perfect choice for infinite shine and color. Create a rosy cheek with the Powder Cheek Stain in Rosy to achieve a natural flushed, wintry look.
Hair Tip: Rocking red is for the bold, worn by ladies who aren’t afraid to be a little daring. Mena suggests pulling hair back into a sleek ponytail to bring more attention to the face.
Love for OxbloodRed doesn’t always have to scream bright and bold. A growing trend is the use of deep red tones that make for a mysterious element. Dramatize with Lipsticks in Bordeaux and Cabaret, two stand-out shades for ultra-chic lips. A seasonal favorite, vampy nails complete this look.
Hair Tip: For a dramatic look, Mena suggests going pin straight. With such bold lips and nails, playing up the hair too much will be overload. Sleek, silky strands will go a long way with already bold cosmetics.
Pretty in Pink
Another popular route for Valentine’s Day is pink, inspiring a babydoll-esque look. Lipsticks in Pink Sugar or Rose Petal  produce light tones for a more playful feel. Because these shades fall on the sheer side, pair with a lip pencil for added definition. The Precision Lip Pencil in Petal is perfect to enhance your client's lip shape and color. Add luminescence and highlight your client's best features with the Cream Colour for Cheeks and Lips in Sweet Pea.
Bonus Hair Tip:  Pink is a great partner for soft, subtle waves. Still very sexy, creating waves around the front of your face will exude a sweet innocence to your overall look.
Brighten Up
Does your client want to really stand out on Valentine’s Day? Take this bold alternative with hot pinks that are fun and flirty. Lipstick in Raspberry gives color to lips that lasts all night long. Pair with an even more intense nail for shock affect!
Bonus Hair Tip: 
Mena likes to pair hot pink hues with a fun braid. Braid side-swept bangs and pin up with bobby pins or create a faux headband by braiding strands from the right temple to the left.
