Celebrate Love With a Flawless Makeup Application

Beautiful, romantic, gorgeous you. Valentine’s Day is upon us, which can only mean that it’s time to project to the world your most romantic persona. When it comes to your look, let your inner beauty shine through with these V-Day makeup ideas.

Use Seasonal Colors

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to rock your favorite shades of red lipstick or lip gloss. Take a cue from Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel. The trick to a perfect red pout is to find the right shade to complement your skin tone, whether it is warm or cool. Tailor the texture of your lips to your plans for the evening. If you know that a kiss is in your near future, go with a longwearing, smudge-proof formula that won’t transfer to other areas of your face—or your sweetheart’s. If your lip look doesn’t need longevity, by all means, go with your favorite red gloss.

Not feeling bold enough for bright red lips? Pink is a festive, holiday-appropriate color as well, offering an innocent, feminine vibe. The same rules apply, in terms of texture. If you intend to plant a kiss on someone special, take care to avoid color transfer.

When in Doubt, Go the Smoky Route

There is no denying the sex appeal that a smoky eye gives to a look. Whether you are planning a night out with girlfriends or a night with that special someone, there are so many things that can be done with your favorite shades of shadow, black liner, and lots of rich, black mascara. Just be sure to complement sultry eye makeup with soft blush and a glossy, pale pout.

Less Can Be More

For those ladies who aren’t quite comfortable with red lipstick or smoky eyes, there are so many other ways to look romantic, sexy, and gorgeous on the day of romance. Simple sweeps of soft, shimmering shadow, a bit of mascara, and a spot of shiny gloss can polish any look, while letting all of your natural beauty shine through.

Do you prefer a sultry or sweet makeup application for V-Day?

I definitely go for the smoky eye.....love the look of the red lip with the neutral eye though. I guess I go kinda in-between sultry and sweet! This comment has been removed.

Less is definitely more in my case bc my bf hates makeup! I'm not sure if it's the actual makeup that he hates or all the time that he has to wait for me to put it on lol ;) This comment has been removed.
