1. Just Wing It

@beautyisboring_

If there’s one thing you definitely can’t go wrong with, it’s the winged eye! And it should definitely come out this Valentine’s Day! It’s sleek, modern and even sexy, so you know you’re onto a winner with this very look.

KAT VON D Tattoo Liner

I’ve heard so many amazing things about the Kat Von D makeup line and I’ve heard even more great things about this liner. So, I had to give it a go myself. Usually, I find it really hard to find a liquid liner to do what I want it to do, because as you know, winged eyes aren’t easy to pull off anyway! But this liner has a great consistency that’s waterproof and will last all day!

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick – Nude Kate

I really love Charlotte Tilbury’s lipsticks and what better way to start your Valentine’s Day with the perfect shade of nude! One of my favorites is Pillow Talk, but for a less pinky color Nude Kate is really great and is not too overpowering.

BECCA Sunlit Bronzer

This bronzer is inspired by long, hot days on the beach and that’s something I can get on board with. The bronzer itself is really unlike other bronzers I’ve tried as it has a little subtle glow to it, which reminds me a little of a highlighter. But it’s great for creating definition and adding a little bit of warmth to your skin!

2. The Flirt

Valentine’s Day is your chance to do things with your makeup you usually wouldn’t do. You get to be fun and flirty and experiment with colors that you usually wouldn’t on a day-to-day basis. It’s your chance to entice and have fun and this look will really reflect that!

3. Not your usual red…

You simply can’t do Valentine’s Day without wearing a little bit of red lipstick – you just can’t. And last year saw a lot of wearing deeper, darker reds. But this year with spring on the horizon we’re excited to spice it up a little bit!  So, if you’re looking for a new shade of red we have one you’re going to fall in love with:

4. The subtle beauty

Even though it’s a big night, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go overboard with the makeup. You don’t have to be dramatic or even wear a lot!
