5 Steps for a Valentine's Day Afterglow

Whether or not your Valentine's Day turned out to be as cozy as you wanted, there is always a way to achieve that flushed glow long associated with being in love. Here are five steps to putting together a blushing (and oh-so-sexy) radiance using makeup.
Step 1: Start with a sheer, dewy foundation, like Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.
Step 2: Brighten up the eye area with YSL Touche Éclat concealer and a dab of shimmery white shadow at the inner corners of your eyes. Try: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Zephyr.
Step 3: Skip liner and swipe on feathery mascara. Try: Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes Mascara.
Step 4: Use a creamy blush, like Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush, or a cheek stain, like Tarte Cheek Stain.
Step 5: As for the lips, keep them kissable with a bare gloss, like Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Nude.
