Whatever your Valentine’s Day plans may be, it’s one day you definitely want to look as radiant and confident on the outside as you feel on the inside. Whether you simply want a soft, natural daytime glow or a bold look for a night out on the town, here are a couple of ideas you may want to try this year:
Look #1 — For the Daytime Date: Brunch, Lunch or Coffee for Two
For a sophisticated yet natural look, choose colors that are soft and elegant. Go for beautifully, delicate shades of pink, peach, or champagne, with accents of navy, gray, or cool brown tones.
Choose a soft shade of pink.
Give your lips a matte finish.
To make lips matte for a more natural appearance, apply loose or pressed powder through a tissue.
Or make them shine.
Instead of powder, apply a layer of lip gloss in a complementary color.
TIP Prepare your lips before you add color. Run a clean mascara wand or soft toothbrush over them to gently remove layers of dry skin.
Stay warm and light with a peach or pale pink.
Bring in a complementary color palette in champagne, navy, or cool brown. Complete the look with a light touch of mascara and liner.
TIP For a softer line, use a pencil eyeliner and smudge with an eyeliner brush.

Look #2 — For a Big Night Out: Full Coverage, and Shine
Be bold, with a rich red hue.
Make the look last longer.
For color that lasts for hours, apply a lip gloss that offers shine and coverage.
TIP Lip gloss also helps lock in moisture, keeping lips hydrated all evening long.
To keep from competing with your vibrant lip color, go softer with a natural peach or pink.
Add some sparkle with a metallic eye shadow. Define and enhance your naturally beautiful eye shape with a bold liner and lengthening mascara.
