This girl loves some lipstick. At any given time, you can find about 15 tubes of lip product in my purse. And those are just the “must-have with me at all times” lipsticks. I know not everyone is on board with the whole Valentine’s Day celebrations, but I for one, love holidays and am always looking for a reason to celebrate anything! So, no matter if you are going out for a night on the town, having dinner in, or just hanging with your girlfriends, there is a lip look for you here!
To shop any of the lip products, just click the pink shade names or any of the photos.
Going out to a intimate dinner with your significant other and want to spice things, up? You go with the lip shade: SPICY by Anastasia Beverly Hills. This is one of my most favorite liquid lip formulas ever! It stays on for hours and hours and never bleeds, fades or gets chunky. This shade, spicy, is a matte red with a hint of an orangey undertone and would be gorgeous with a simple eye shadow with a black cat eye liner.
If you want a more romantic look, I love a true, deeper matte red. This lipstick is by Morphe and so affordable – only $10! This shade is LOVER and is gorgeous! This is a lipstick so it will fade as you wear it, but what I love about lipstick versus the liquid lip is that it has a little bit more moisture. However, if you plan on smooching with your man all night, you may want to opt for the liquid lip – that stuff doesn’t move no matter how much kissing you do – trust me. 😉 I think this deep, true red shade would be beautiful with a golden eye look!
Ok, This is another Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lip (perfect for making out – lol) and the shade is SUGAR PLUM. It’s a raspberry shade with an iridescent shimmer. This is a color I usually am not drawn to, but when I was shopping one day, I swatched it and had to have it. Honestly, I don’t wear it a ton, but I think is a really beautiful, vibrant color and could not be more perfect for another occasion. So, if you’re looking for a little different and fun look for Valentine’s Day, pair this lip shade with a matte, neutral eye look and maybe a pop of Urban Decay glitter liner (LOVE the color Midnight Cowboy).
I think there is nothing more flirty than a true, wet, baby pink lip. This is another super affordable (only $7!) lipstick by Maybelline in the shade UNDRESSED PINK. It’s got a really pretty shine and just makes your lips look nice and luscious. I mean, who doesn’t want super seductive yet subtle lips?! I think this lip shade would be beautiful for Valentine’s Day with a cranberry red eye look. So perfect!
If you want to have a more simple, cute look, you wear the shade SO CUTE by Kylie Cosmetics. This is a super wet looking lip gloss that is very nude! I LOVE IT! I wear it by itself and also use it on the middle of my lips on top of lipsticks. With this being a neutral color, I’d pair it with a really smokey eye – so cute!
Valentine’s Day was the first holiday my husband and I ever celebrated together. I was just 16 and he was 18. He showed up to my house with two dozen red roses that my sweet father-in-law went and bought for him and we ate at Red Lobster. So, it will always be a special holiday for us, but now it’s all about the girls and having so much fun with them, eating all the heart shaped food and opening little gifts and chocolates. How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day and what look would you go for?? Comment below, I’d LOVE to hear!
