Kiss from a rose: get the romantic look

If you’re feeling uninspired when it comes to makeup, why not go for a classic romantic look? With soft, rosy tones and dewy skin, it’s a sure way to look beautiful and easily achieved no matter what your level of makeup skill may be.

Define your eyes

When it comes to eyes, the romantic look can still be achieved regardless of what your style is. Run a dark brown eyeshadow through the crease and complement it with a lighter, golden shade to create a soft smoky eye. If you’re looking for more colour, pink eyeshadow is the way to go. Get the full romantic rose look by layering pink shades over your crease with a subtle shimmer to top it off.

For a subtler finish, stick to one eyeshadow shade and apply plenty of mascara to make your eyes stand out. Create long fluttery lashes by popping on a light pair of falsies to give your eyes an extra-feminine look.

Shape those brows

Brows are a very personal feature and have become a key feature in beauty routines. When it comes to getting the romantic look, you should choose a brow style that you feel comfortable with. If you need some inspiration, check out these brow trends from all over the globe.

Stick to what you know when it comes to brows. After all, you know how they best shape your face.

The perfect base

Before applying foundation, create the perfect base with a radiant primer. This will make sure your makeup lasts and gives your skin a dewy glow. Choose a foundation that gives your complexion an even, flawless coverage with a natural finish and conceal any blemishes with a long-lasting concealer.

Finish off your perfect base by softly contouring and highlighting your cheek bones. Using lightweight products such as those of Tropic Skincare can give you the perfect romantic look while making sure your skin still feels comfortable.

Blushing roses

Blushing, pretty rosy cheeks are a signature staple in any romantic look. Adding a sweep of blusher creates a natural-looking flush to the cheeks, giving that classic Audrey Hepburn look. It adds balance and a pop of colour to your face, creating a youthful appearance.

Blushing cheeks frequently occur in romantic settings, even fictional ones, so a rosy blusher is a must for the romantic look that gives off flirty vibes.

Seal it with a kiss

A general rule with makeup is that softer eyes allow for a bold lip and vice versa. If you’ve gone for a heavier smoky eye, soft neutral shades such as nudes and pink might best complement your features. If you’ve chosen minimal eyes, a popping shade of red is sure to give off romantic vibes and give you a kissable pout (just make sure it’s a long-lasting formula!).

But don’t be afraid to make a statement with bold eyes and lips. Bright shades of pink can leave your lips resembling a rose, whereas crimson shades create a bright, romantic feel. If, meanwhile, you’re aiming for a sultry look, berry-toned lipsticks are the way to go.
