Turn up the heat with one of these festive and flattering looks.
When applying “sexy” makeup, we tend to gravitate towards a smoky eye and bold lip. But that’s not the only bombshell combo you need to settle for this Valentine’s Day.
We couldn’t think of anything flirtier than colorful eyeshadow, especially red and pink makeup that’s sure to have your valentine seeing x’s and o’s. And if you’re afraid of a little color, have no fear. These shades look beautiful on warm and deep skin tones.
