How to Do Soft, Romantic Makeup

Romantic Makeup Looks
If you’re a hopeless (or is it hopeful?) romantic, your makeup ought to look the part. Candlelit dinners by the fire, moonlit strolls on the beach and first dates all call for soft, romantic makeup.

To create the lit-from-within glow possessed by all romantics in the movies (especially Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts), create a dewy face with a sheer foundation, applied with a foundation brush and blended with a sponge. Go light on the concealer around the eyes, as it tends to settle into fine lines and give the skin a crinkled look. Looking youthful is your goal.

For romantic-looking skin, apply a shimmery liquid highlighter to the temples, brow bone and down the center of the nose (this will reflect light and create a flawless-looking complexion). Baby pink blush is a must and should be applied, and blended, generously to the apples of the cheeks.

Skip eyeliner and rely on colored mascara to bring out your eyes, the windows to a romantic’s soul. Remember that a bit of loose shimmer looks romantic, while loose glitter looks tacky. Think of loose shimmer as fairy dust and apply it to the lids, temples and even on top of lip gloss to look ethereal. --Stephanie Simons

I like using a sponge as a foundation applicator, but I've found that it wastes a lot of my foundation by sucking up the product. Anyone know how i can get the same finish as a sponge without all that foundation going down the drain? This comment has been removed.
