Who will you be on February 14? Audrey Hepburn or the Valentine Vampire?

1/4 The Audrey Hepburn

A foolproof look for that big date on February 14, the Audrey Hepburn champions the power of classic beauty. Black liquid eyeliner and your favourite red lipstick are the MVPs of this beauty look; do not steal their thunder with any sort of contouring or heavy eye makeup. Prep the skin aptly with your go-to moisturisers, oils and serums, and keep the foundation light like a veil. Finish with some mascara, a warm tinted blush and eyebrow pencil. 

2/4 She's A Peach

She's A Peach is all about warmth and true girly glamour. If you want to show up to your date looking like an absolute goddess, this is the look to go for. For this look, you'll need a palette that ranges from shimmery peach to gold. You'll also need a shimmery blush and a highlighter. Leave no inch of your face un-touched by shimmer. Even your peach lips should be of a sparkling or glossy variety, rather than matte. Did I say shimmery yet? If this all sounds too complicated, Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk Set essentially comprises of everything you need, so get it!

An unexpected way to exude warmth and beauty this romantic season is with the colour blue. Choose a pastel blue eyeshadow that suits your skin tone and create some drama on the eyelids—don't afraid to be imprecise. You won’t need much else. Nude to pink are recommended lip colours for this look. Actresses Lilly Collins and Dakota and Elle Fanning have been known to embrace the blue eyeshadow look a few times. 

4/4 The Valentine Vampire

Whether you hate Valentine’s Day or simply do not subscribe to the typical girly-girl look, we’ve created this look just for you. Wear your anti-Valentine’s badge proudly with a bold dark lip--either pitch black or a dark plum. Not falling for the goth trope, however, you must resist the urge (if any) to do a smokey eye. Instead, go light on the eyes with just enough liner and mascara, and add a bit of blush to convince your prey. Emmy Rossum nailed this vampiric look in the heart at the Critics’ Choice Awards last month.
