Lashes To Love This Valentine’s Day

We’ve been fluttering our lashes since 4000 BC, as records suggest the ancient Egyptians used to use kohl as a way of darkening their lashes, eyelids and brows. Believed to ward off evil spirits, today modern day mascara is an aesthetic adornment used to enhance, lift and lengthen.

We’ve all heard of the saying “the look of love” and with Valentine’s Day around the corner, there’s no better time to enhance that eye body contact than with the help of our little friend…mascara.

Whether you’re going on a first date, second or are already loved up, there’s no better time to flutter those lashes than this Valentine’s Day. Glide on some shimmery eyeshadow, flick on the eyeliner for some added drama and complete the look with a single stroke of Essence mascara and team with a glossy red lip. Team with jeans and a simple white tee for a simple but sexy made-up head-to-toe look.

The final touch to your Valentine’s Day look is of course a spritz of your favourite scent. Apart from luscious lashes, nothing speaks the language of love more than an opulent scent. Whether your go-to is floral or fruity, woody or warm, make sure you envelop your love with a decadent fragrance this Valentine’s Day.
