Whether you’re spending it at an intimate dinner in a candle-lit restaurant, or your besties are coming over to binge box sets (pal-entine’s is defo the way forward), we’ve gathered our three cutest Valentine’s Day makeup looks that are perfect for the romantic season this year.
Look One: Somethin’ A Little Sultry – Brown Smoky Eye And A Luscious Nude Lip
It’s an irresistible classic and has long been a staple of the eyeshadow world: there’s no doubt that our love for the smoky eye hasn’t faded over time. However, if you’re looking for a fresh take on this soft glam staple that will astonish your Valentine’s Day date and flatter every skin tone and eye color, our brown smoky eye and glossy nude lip is our go-to choice.
Infused with smudgy-sexiness, this is the perfect pick for a cozy Valentine’s dinner – your date will be drooling over you.
tip #1: To give this look a contemporary revival, we’ve substituted the traditional black for more muted chocolate and taupe tones – think siren, but softer. To craft this easy Valentine’s Day look, our Forever Flawless Shadow Palette in the shade Nude Silk boasts a gorgeous range of cool and warm browns, creams and bronzes – everything you need to pull off this luscious look with ease.

tip #2: Gently pat a light neutral shade like ’Hedonism’ or ‘Sensation’ over your lid, and build the darker shades along your lash line and outer corner, then smudge it out with a small densely-packed brush to achieve that smoky look. Finish with a generous swipe of mascara!
Expert Tip: If you want an even more seductive Valentine’s Day makeup look, add a dash of eyeliner to your upper lash line – whether you want to wing it out is optional.
tip #3: As this Valentine’s Day makeup look is all about the eyes, we’re keeping the lips subtle here. To achieve the glazed nude lips of your dreams, line your pout with a lip liner that’s only a touch darker than your skin tone. Our Satin Kiss Lip Liners have an exquisite range of shades to help you find the right one.
tip #4: Lightly blot a lipstick in a matching tone over the liner, and top with a generous dab of our Pout Bomb Plumping Gloss in the shade Glaze for a kissable pout perfect for Valentine’s Day.
