Your V-day reservations are all set. Your outfit is pressed and ready. What else could be missing? That’s right, your makeup look!
While it might seem a wee bit too early to be planning what shade of lipstick would go best with your dress, there’s certainly no harm in looking for pegs. So to give you a helping hand, we’ve rounded up some looks for you to rock this Valentine’s. Go on, scroll down and take your pick.
Look #1: Sultry eyed siren
There’s nothing like a strong, sultry gaze to really grab his attention. And what better way to do so than with a soft smoky eye? Pair this with a nude lip and you got yourself a winning date night combo.
Perfect for: A candlelit dinner (with some Netflix and chill afterwards.)
Use: Mary Kay Mineral Color Quad in Sandstorm
Look #2: Pretty in pink
Guys can’t help but fall hard for a lady that’s as pretty as petal. If you’re the girly type who loves pink, this shouldn’t be hard for you. Load up you’re a big brush with pink blush and sweep the color upwards from the apples of your cheeks. Don’t forget to mimic the color on your lips and top it off with some balm or a light gloss to keep your pucker looking plump and kissable.
Perfect for: Lunch dates in Tagaytay
Use: NARS blush in Angelika
Look #3: Lashed out
Just because you have nothing fancy planned for Valentine’s doesn’t mean you should cut back on the glam, too. Brighten up your peepers for a chill date at the movies with the help of a few coats of mascara to volumize and lengthen those fringes.
Perfect for: Catching the last full show after work.
Use: Eyeko Rock Out and Lash Out Mascara
Look #4: Red hot
Red lipstick always catches attention. For girls, the perfect shade of red can instantly make you feel bolder, and even sexier. And if a guy's really into you, he wouldn’t mind you sporting a bright pout that could stain his shirt. We’ll leave this open to interpretation. *Wink*
Perfect for: Drinks at that new hip bar everyone is talking about.
Use: Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte in Matte 6 Deep Red
Look #5: Au naturel
Ask any guy what makeup look he likes best on a girl and we bet he’ll automatically say “natural.” However, going completely bare isn’t the wisest decision when trying to dress for the occasion. But do know that there are cheats to faking great skin. One is to use just a little bit of foundation so that you can at least cover up redness and blemishes, and then top it off with some highlighting cream to give your skin that dewy, luminous finish.
Perfect for: A full day of activities
Use: MAC Lightful C 2-In-1 Tint and Serum with Radiance Booster
