How Will You Celebrate Valentine’s Day?

Sunday, February 13, 2011 | Tips & How-Tos

Woman-with-heart The countdown has begun. In three short days, new sweethearts, old couples and BFFs will celebrate the season of love with flowers, confections and more. Whether you’ve got big plans or even bigger surprises, February 14th is a day few are likely to forget. And if you’re looking for a look to set hearts a-fluttering, we’ve got your number. (As if we needed an excuse to look fabulous.)

Candlelit Dinner for Two
Few things are more romantic than a night out with your valentine at some place special. And if it’s a little black dress affair, you’ll need a show-stopping look to match.
What to Wear:
Stand out from the ambient lighting with a light-reflecting powder like Pür Radiance. Now is also the perfect time to turn up the heat with ravishing Ruby Red lips and softly muted eyes with just a hint of drama. (We recommend earthy, neutral shadows and Pür Intensity.)

Romantic Night In
The best plans (and gifts) come from the heart, and if your special someone has a surprise in store for you at home, it’s best to look the part in style.
What to Wear:
Three words: Exotic Rocks Trio. Give your cheeks a rosy glow with Hot Rocks, highlight your eyes with Glow Rocks and create a romantic red pout with Lava Rocks. For added drama, try Impact+ mascara and a Pout Plumping Lip Gloss like I Heart Pür.

Girls’ Night Out
Planning a night out with your BFFs? Paint the town red this Valentine’s Day with a steamy spring look that’ll have everyone you meet looking twice.
What to Wear:
Give your winter look an injection of fresh, flirty spring color with the Nature’s Paradise Palette. Contour the creases of your eyes with the Polynesian Pink shade and line eyes with Jadeite liner, smudging into the lower crease for a sexy, two-toned look. (See how here.)
