Rosy Red

When someone says Valentine’s Day one of the first images to pop into mind is that of a brilliant bunch of bloomy red roses. Emulate the romance of a bunch of these most iconic flowers by using a warm pink blush on your cheekbones. We recommend NARS – the ultimate authority in blush – and especially love their Desire shade which provides a natural and healthy-looking glow.

Smoldering Shimmer

Continue emulating the gorgeous red rose, by experimenting with shimmery eye shadows spread over the entire eye lid. Colors including gold, bronze and pink instantly exude quintessential Valentine’s Day romance. For this, we love Fenty Beauty Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette.

Golden Glow

There’s so much choice with your make up base these days. When you’re deciding on your ideal complexion for your Big Night Out you could go for either dewy skin or matte skin. Dewy skin has got to be the ultimate in sexy skin as it makes you glimmer and glisten like a glorious, bright, young thing when the light is reflected. We love Benefit’s High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer for the ultimate in a golden glow.

Marvelous Manicure

Your nails are such a crucial element of your look and Valentine’s Day, like Christmas, Halloween or Easter, is a time of the year where you can get super creative and really go wild. Glitter is still really in at the moment, so a pink glittery nail would look striking, and we love OPI’s Princesses Rule! for its delicate and subtle shimmer.

Show Me the Sparkle

The sparkly lip is so in right now! The likes of Naomi Campbell and Taylor Swift have been spotted rocking glittery lips so twinkling pink lips would really be on trend for your special night in or out. Try MAC’s Lipglass in Candy Yum-Yum to re-create this wonderful look. Or, go for something bolder with a bright ruby red. We love Ruby Woo, also from MAC Cosmetics.
