Who would want to celebrate a ‘Hug Day’ on 12th Feb? Well, it may be worth doing so for a change. Well, since we are all so busy doing everything else, these tender human emotions have taken a back seat, completely. As you live upto the countdown to Valentine’s Day and celebrate love, get cozy with your sweetheart and relish the moments of togetherness and let romance bloom!
Clothes: For a quick evening date, glam up in a golden outfit that will bring on a divalicious glow quite effortlessly. A rose motif will make it more romantic. I choose an off shoulder, short dress since it has a nice fit and gets me compliments always. Such a tied and tested option makes sense when you have to go post work and have to quickly change into a glam avatar.
Makeup: Though I usually prefer to do my own makeup, I again got my friend Pooja Karnani, an expert makeup artist, to help me out. I had really liked the look she had created for me earlier and now it was time to experiment with an evening look. She did purple smoky eyes for me and to add a wide-eyed charm there was loads of mascara and a subtle, winged liner finish. She kept the lip colour coral chic and very sensuous. This makeup made me feel gorgeous and good to go!
Hair Style: I chose to keep my hair open but with an interesting twist than how I wear it on a regular day. So a deep side parting and the long fringes fell over the eyes on one side and made the style still manageable.
Accessories: Since the outfit and the makeup have a metallic sheen, I chose to tone down the accessories. A matt golden cuff and a clutch purse in beige were my only addons. The graphic motif of the Eiffel Tower of Paris, the most romantic city in the world, was on the clutch purse to add to the romantic mood. For footwear I chose to wear a pair of comfortable golden peep toes.
