Rose day is almost here and we’ve got just the right looks for it! If you’re confused with how to do your hair or makeup this Rose Day, we feel you. It can be quite the task to find a look that works well for the occasion, but don’t worry - we’ve got you covered. Here are some super simple yet absolutely dreamy hairstyles and makeup looks that’ll be perfect for the day!
Slick Back Bun With A Touch of Pink
This is a look that’s easy, soft and absolutely stunning on brown skin! Detangle your hair and make sure it's free of any knots, then add a hydrating and protecting serum that helps reduce breakage and frizz. Then, tie your hair up as slick as you can to the top of your head and secure it with a hair tie and some bobby pins. You can use a scrunchie for a cuter look. And then to keep all the frizz at bay, use a hair gel and secure all the flyaways.
For the makeup, try pairing warm tangerine or coral coloured eyeshadows with a cool raspberry-coloured blush. Pick a peach toned eyeshadow and apply it to the base of your lash line and all over your lids, then pair it with a shimmery shade of light pink or gold to make it pop. You can opt for a nude shade of lipstick to give it a natural look or a brown shade that’ll give you a warm and chocolaty look.
The 70’s Blowout With Glossy Lips & A Touch Of Purple
This classic 70’s blowout paired with a hint of purple shadow and glossy lips is such a dreamy and stunning look for a date! Grab a hair dryer and a roller brush and you’re ready to get the look - don’t forget the heat protectant. Start by parting your hair into medium size sections and start at the root of the hair with the concentrator nozzle angled down. Wrap the rest of your hair in the round brush and apply steady heat. Keep it in until that section has cooled down. Repeat this process for the rest of the sections of your hair and you’re all set!
Pair this with a soft purple makeup look, purples are such a dreamy colour in the pink palette. Start with a shimmery shade of lilac and apply it all over your lids and then apply the same shade just below your water line to add some dimension. You can use a matte purple eyeshadow to create a wing that defines your eyes a little more. Pair this with a light pink or peachy blush and a nude glossy lip. Add in some mascara and a little kajal to really bring the look together.
Shimmery Pink With The Sleek Bob
If you have a bob, here’s a look that’s timeless and elegant and it takes only 5 minutes to get right! First, part your hair right down the middle and comb it out to make sure it's free of knots and frizz. Use a little heat protectant serum and then with a flat iron to sleek out your hair finishing off the look with a shiny hair serum or oil. It’s as simple as that to pull together a sophisticated look!
Sticking to the classic colour of love, pick a soft pink eyeshadow and apply it to your lower lash line and lids. Add a sheer rose gold swipe of shimmer on your lids to add a little glam. Finish off the eye look with some mascara and kajal on the top lash lines and blend it until it's soft and smoky. For the lips you can opt for a nude shade to pull the focus on your eyes or go for a bold red to really spice it up. Don’t forget to add a light flush to your cheeks to compliment your eyes.
Stunning Heatless Waves With A Soft Pink Moment
Hair rollers are the simplest, easiest and least time consuming way to get beautiful, well defined heatless curls. You can use small rollers to get an intense curl moment or large rollers to get a more casual beachy wave. Use the rollers on your hair when they’re almost fully dry. Once the rollers are in, spritz some water on it or you can use a hairspray. Leave the rollers on for 20-30 minutes and then comb through your hair.
There’s tons of looks that require barely any time and still look dreamy and soft, and this is one of the simplest ones. Pick a soft shade of pink eyeshadow and apply it to your eyes, starting at the base of your lash line and applying it all over your lids. You can add a tinge of shimmer if you like! Then, add a few coats of your favourite mascara, some clear lip gloss or light lip tint and you’re all set.
Flushed Cheeks, Bold Lips & Soft Eyes With Shiny Little Pins
If you love to let your hair down and still want a little glam to your look - this is the perfect hairstyle for it! Comb out your hair and part it in any way that you like it - side and middle parts go best with this look. Pick out a few shiny and jewelled hair clips or bobby pins and add them to the side of your hair.
This is a makeup look that defines the soft girl moment but spices it up with a bold lip colour. Flush out your cheeks with a blush of your choice and then use an eyeshadow as an eyeliner for a soft smoky look. Dip your brush in black eyeshadow and guide the edge of the bristles out into a wing shape—just like you would with a regular eyeliner. You can pick any colour of your choice instead of black too! Finally, choose bold lip colours like burgundy, dark purple or crimson red to pull the look together and add a little glam!
Now that you’re all set to look soft and dreamy for Rose day, make sure to add a bit of highlighter to all your looks to give off that natural glow and serve some stunning looks. Get date ready at your nearest Femina Flaunt Salon!
