3 ROMANTIC VALENTINE’S DAY MAKEUP LOOKS

It’s hard not to fall for Valentine’s makeup. Whatever your plans for the day may be, flirty, fluttery lashes, romantic red lipstick and a first-love flush are always alluring. Whether you’re staying in or going out, get ready to experiment with three of the dreamiest looks. And, remember: they’re not just for date night. These trends will have you head over heels every day…

SEALED WITH A KISS

Glowing skin and a luminous red lipstick are the perfect match. Make your lips kiss-proof by prepping your pout using Miracle Prep Lip Scrub to buff away any dry patches. For long-lasting colour, etch Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Ruby Red around the natural line of your lips, and sketch to fill upper and lower lips for a long-lasting base. Glide Lipfinity Lip Colour in So Glamorous over the top of the lip liner, then tap Miracle Glow Pro Universal Highlighter high on cheekbones to boost radiance.

SMOKEY AND SULTRY

Pair full-volume lashes and smudgy kohl for a ‘can’t-take-my-eyes-off-you’ Valentine’s makeup look. Masterpiece Kohl Kajal Pencil is buttery-soft – perfect for smudging around eyes to get that sexy, smokey texture. Apply along the upper and lower lash line, blend, then layer the medium and dark shades from the Masterpiece Nude Palette in Cappuccino Nudes over lids. Next, frame kohl-lined eyes using False Lash Effect Mascara, making sure to place the mascara wand right at the root of lashes for an extra lift. For bigger, bolder volume, zig-zag the brush from root to tip to separate, then hold the mascara wand at the tip of lashes for a few seconds to lock in a curl. To keep this look fresh, define brows with the in Ebony.

GET A GLOW

Fake that first love glow with a few skin-illuminating tricks. Start by prepping your complexion with Miracle Prep Illuminating & Hydrating Primer to achieve lit-from-within luminosity. Then, dot Miracle Touch Foundation, featuring super-hydrating hyaluronic acid, onto the centre of your forehead, nose and chin. Use a fluffy foundation brush to lightly buff upwards and outwards for a natural-looking, soft-focus finish. Add a touch of Miracle Touch Creamy Blush on apples of cheeks to brighten your complexion, and blend shimmery shades from the Masterpiece Nude Palette in Golden Nudes over lids. Ready for the finishing touch? Get a glowy lip look using Colour Elixir Lip Cushion in Spotlight Sheer, then sweep on Rise & Shine Mascara for long, fluttery lashes.
