We know you already have your outfit picked out, so here’s the game plan for your beauty routine. These V-day picks, whether for dinner with the girls or “getting together” with your guy, will have you looking your hottest!
For a subtle and seductive eye, we like the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in the new Kaska Beige ($56, chanel.com). Start with the lightest color to highlight underneath the brow, then use the medium shade on the lid.
Next, fill in the crease with one of the darker shades and blend towards to the outer corner of the eye. To up the ante, try a Complete Lash Kit from Japonesque ($9.80, Ulta) for flirtatious falsies (get tips for lash application in the February issue of Sister 2 Sister).
Now, on to the lips! Prep with a moisturizing balm, like NIVEA A Kiss of Flavor in Cherry ($2.99, CVS). Then, for a deep and irresistible matte berry lip, try the Laura Geller Crème Couture Lipstick in Cranberry ($18.00, laurageller.com).
Before you walk out that door, spray on a bit of Theme Fragrance’s Bows and Eros ($15.50, themefragrance.com). Named for Eros, the Greek god of love, this scent will give you the alluring smell of fresh cut roses.
Chocolate on the strawberry: Need to set the mood? Try a Charcoal Rose NK Candle ($60, spacenk.com) to fill the air with a sensual black rose, blush pink peppercorns and pine smoke scent.
