No matter your plans this weekend (Hello, Valentine’s Day), experimenting with your makeup is a must. You don’t have to go full out pink in order to wear your flintiest look yet. Cupid doesn’t discriminate. :) Instead, make your beauty all about accents, long-lasting products and amazing coverage. For the ultimate Valentine’s beauty incorporate these tips and products into your evening’s prep.

Valentines Day Makeup

Olivine Love + Roses Beauty Mist / NYX Gel Liner and Smudger / Benefit Badgal Lash MascaraBioxidea BB+B Cream / essie Fiesta / Make Blush in Tutu / Shisheido Eyelash Curler / em cosmetics Lip Gallery in Wow Pink

Even if you plan on going mostly makeup-free for the night the one place not to skimp is your base. Start with a moisturizer or product that does double duty, like Bioxidea BB+B Cream. This will help you put your best face forward and leave you with supple, glowing skin. Plus, Bioxidea delivers great coverage without appearing caked on so you’ll look naturally flawless instantly.

Next to your complexion the most prominent and playful features are your lips and eyes. But you don’t want both to be bold, so select one to be your star feature. If you opt for your eyes, you can mix violets and smoky purples for a statement look. The em cosmetics Life Palette in Valentine Life will give you all the products you need in one portable compact. But if lips are the feature you want to show off (who doesn’t love a pretty pout?), then keep your eyes simple.

Brush a light grey or neutral tone over your lids. You want a hint of color, but nothing too strong. Then use NYX Gel Liner and Smudger to create a subtle cat eye and tease some of the color along your bottom lash line. By not drawing your cat eye on with a liquid liner you’re creating a softer, sexier eye. Curl your lashes (these tips will make yours lust-worthy) and apply a volumizing mascara like Benefit Badgal Lash Mascara.

To enhance your glowing skin, apply a blush that gives your cheeks a kiss of color – you want to look like you’re naturally blushing, not wearing product. Select a blush in the same color family as your lip color. Then finish your face with a vibrant lip like em cosmetics Lip Gallery Wow Pink. When wearing bright pinks–shiny or matte–follow the same application rules as when you wear red lips. You don’t want any feathering to occur. 

Now that your makeup is finished, here are two additional accents to take your look to the next level. Spritz Olivine Atelier Love + Roses Beauty Mist on your body or hair for a hydration boost and a rose aroma you’ll become obsessed with. It’s an excellent options for ladies who don’t wear perfume and can actually be applied to the face before makeup application for a blast of essential oil power. And then there are your nails – you know I adore bright tips! Polish on a vibrant pink that matches your lips like essie Fiesta, then grab your bag and head out the door.

What’s your favorite look to wear on Valentine’s Day?
