Tonight is traditionally one of the biggest date nights of the year. That might mean dinner or a fancy night out with your man, hitting the town for a galentine night of drinks and dancing, or going on a “date” with your own dang self. No matter what you’re up to this evening, today is about spreading and feeling the love. To make sure you look your best for Valentine’s Day, and every night after, we have some simple tricks and multi-use products you’ll loooveee…
HIT EM WITH YOUR BEST POUT
If you’ve got someone to pucker up for, or want to find someone to puck up with, you’ve gotta have those lips ready. Lipstick is always a safe bet, and if you want some shine, you can go for glossy. But our favorite product right now is a combination of a little bit of everything: the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm. It provides that needed hit of color, without being overpowering or too sticky.
WINDOWS TO YOUR SOUL
The go-to date night look has to be the smoky eye. It’s a tried and true classic that adds extra sex appeal to even simple outfits. Add some oomph to your favorite jeans and tee or put even more glamour behind an LBD with this look. Our favorite is the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Quad E5 Incredible Grey palette because the extra touch of silver looks good on all skin tones. It’ll look great in candlelight over champagne!
BROW GAME STRONG
Thanks to Cara Delevingne, Lily Collins and other stars, brows are still all the rage in the beauty game. But you don’t have to be a super model to get super brows! The Palladio Brow Styler Tinted Gel make it’s easy to tame flyaways, shape your arches and fill in gaps all in a few strokes. If you’re going for real drama, you can also add in a touch of their Brow Definer Micro Pencil.
PAINT THE TOWN PINK
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a little bit of rouge! Add a little bit of pink sparkle to your lids with the Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette has a number of rosy hues that will especially make brown and hazel eyes pop. You can also use the Clinique Chubby Sticks as matte blush as well. Touch it to the apples of your cheeks and rub it in with your fingertips. A one, two touch and you’re ready for a fun night!
