If you're skipping a more traditional Valentine's Day for a nice romantic online chat, Skype asked celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff to give you some tips on how to look gorgeous while on your webcam.
Per a press release, the "Romantic" V-Day makeup look (their quotes, not ours) includes primer, creme blush, and tinted balm for that "I'm glowing here on the other side of the world" vibe. Dubroff also recommends finding good background lighting and curling your eyelashes. Ideally, you can use these tips all year round, so how long before one of the big makeup brands releases an entire line of products designed to look good on FaceTime?
