A Romantic Look

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and although it's not my favorite holiday, I think that there's something romantic about this time of year. The snow starts to melt and you can feel spring just around the corner. Whether you have a significant other or not, I think it's important to incorporate a little romance into your life.

This look was inspired by the ultimate chick-flick movie, Pride & Prejudice. Kiera Knightley looks so fresh-faced and romantic, and I was determined to recreate her makeup in a modern way.  The result? A look that's wearable from work to cocktail hour.

This simple beauty look takes just minutes. It's amazing how a vampy lip, lots of mascara, and a little brow definition can transform your face into looking like you were personally courted by Mr. Darcy. 

*For some extra romance, I styled my hair into a low chignon and left out some curled, face-framing pieces. This is a great tutorial on how to achieve the look.
