Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, and we have everything pink and red on the brain. And while we’re crushing hard on the festive colors, they aren’t the only hues you can wear to celebrate. Need some inspiration for the big night? If you’re hitting the town with friends or heading out for a romantic evening, we’ve got you covered – whether you love the holiday’s signature colors or not.
Here are 5 tips guaranteed to get the party started:
- Rock a classic red lip and lush lashes
Clearly this combo isn’t groundbreaking, but that doesn’t make it any less impactful. Start with our red Lipliner
and then swipe on our lipstick in Pomegranate
– the perfect deep scarlet – and add a few coats of Jet Black Mascara
to your lashes. Feeling adventurous? Add a touch of sparkle to your pout by dabbing on some glitter.
- Go for the gold
If the traditional Valentine’s Day hues aren’t your thing, opt instead for a dramatic black winged liner and top it off with gold eyeshadow at the inner and outer corners of your peepers. Use our Egyptian Gold
eyeshadow and smooth Raven Liquid Eyeliner
to get the look.
- Try subtle touches of pink
Whether you want to keep it light and fresh or create something more intense, our Vibrant Pink Blush
and lipstick in Dollhouse Pink
will do the trick. Our blush can be re-applied to achieve the desired richness of color – use it one your cheekbones all the way up to your temples.
- Make a statement with your eyes
You can’t go wrong with a smokey eye and glossy lip. Depending on your skin tone, use our Eyeshadow
in Dove, Plume, or Charcoal to create the perfect pop. Add Lip Gloss
in a deep plum (like Mania) or shimmering champagne (like Liquid Bliss) to complete the look.
- Say it with your nails
This is best time of year to mix pink and red, so why not use both colors in your manicure this week? Cheers and Kiss from our Stroke of Midnight Nail Collection
are the perfect metallic pairing. If you’re going for a bold look on your face and want to keep your nails simple, stick to a shimmering neutral shade like our Liquid Silver
