Pink lids? So last year. This V-Day, rock light blue eye shadow instead and bring out the ethereal side in you, without looking too much like a fairy.
Grab a pastel blue shadow like Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Peace and buff it out all over your lid with a fluffy blending brush. Boom. You’re ready for date night.
And our fave pick? The Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in 400 is a timeless shade of true red. It applies velvety smooth with impeccable hold — you’ll appreciate its long-lasting powers for smooch night.
Bold, we know. We may not recommend this one for a first date, (unless you want to — you do you, girl) but if you’re the experimenting type, go for it! While Mom may not approve, we sure do.
If your date is about to roll up and you waited until the last minute to apply your bold cat eye, it doesn’t get any easier than the NYX Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Delight. Precision at its best, ladies.
Typically when you think Valentine’s Day makeup, you think of dewy skin and bright, rosy cheeks. Not this time. We’re going for an edgier feel with this all matte-makeup look. Contoured cheeks, a dark brown lip, smoldering eyes — the works!
You can get the perfect matte finish (without breaking the bank) thanks to the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. It’s oil-absorbing powers will keep your skin shine-free (allll night) so you’ll have one less thing to worry about on your hot date.
You can also go light and natural with an I-woke-up-like-this fresh face. If your V-Day is more like bottomless mimosas with your gal pals, an au naturel glow and nude lippie might feel more suitable.
Fake a light contour and super highlighted cheekbones with the Lancôme Le Duo Stick. Just draw away and blend, blend, blend. Now off to brunch you go!
