When on a Valentine’s date, you’ll definitely want your complexion to be as flawless as possible, without your makeup appearing cakey. The Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation is a full-coverage yet lightweight foundation that’s buildable. With one small dollop, say goodbye to your acne scars for the night! I love this foundation for it lasts the entire day underneath a mattifying powder.

Brows, brows, brows. Well-groomed brows act to frame your eyes and highlight your best features, so don’t forget to pay some attention to your brows! The Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil is my pick this V-day because it has a thin tip for you to fill in your brows easily, with much precision. Let your brows be on fleek!

I know this is not the first time I’m talking about this palette but I am OBSESSED with this. Seriously, where to find a palette that gives you a glowy all-over complexion with a face powder, a nice contour with a bronzer, a sweet pink flush with a blusher and that glow on the cheekbones with a highlighter? Look no further, complete your romantic look with the Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Edit – Surreal Light. Full review here.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette

The secret to a sweet makeup date look is to have soft, peachy colours on the eyes. You can never go wrong with peach, rose gold, taupe and brown. If you want to have one eyeshadow palette that does it all, choose the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette. It’s one palette that contains all the sweet, romantic eye colours you need! Not to mention, they smell like sweet peaches too, so you’ll be sure to feel all girly and peach-tastic, all ready to mesmerise!
Here’s a quick pictorial on how I did my eye makeup with the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette. Full review, swatches and makeup look here.
To finally top off your makeup look, I’ve chosen 2 types of lip colours depending on your preference:
Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss

If you’re a lip gloss kind of girl, you’ll definitely want to pucker up with the Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss, for a refreshing sweet look. With skin-loving peach oil and Vitamin E, your lips will be moisturised and hydrated, perfect for kissing your date on Valentine’s night! Oh, surprise your date with this lip gloss too because he’s going to taste some sweet peaches while kissing you ;) Review, swatches and makeup looks can be found here.
Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Color – Capri
If you’re not into lip glosses, but want to prepare for a kissy night out without smudging your lipstick, the perfect lippie for you would be the Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Color. I personally chose Capri because a vibrant coral lipstick would brighten up your look and make you look rejuvenated and refreshed after a long day at work, before your dinner date. The Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Color dries matte and does not transfer at all, so you can assure your date that it’s safe to kiss you ;)
Here are 2 makeup looks I created with the use of my makeup essentials mentioned above!
