Valentine’s Day Lip Love

Day Lip Love

Day – the official holiday of smooching – is nearly here, so it’s time to think
about your luscious lip plan.

Today I am giving you 3 date night lip options combined with a little color theory class, breaking
down some color options for those of you with a cool complexion and those of
you with warm undertones.

Read on and
pucker up!

Valentine’s lip number one is for those of you who don’t want
to do a big lip, but feel like more than just chapstick. Try using a lipliner
to shape your kisser, and top it off with a colored lip gloss. In these images we’ve left the liner where you can see it, but in real life blend through it with your lip brush and make it invisible.


Icy and pink
glosses look fabulous on girls with a cool toned complexion, while soft peachy
tones are beautiful on a warm toned girl.


Valentine’s lip number two is all about your pink game. Moving into a full lipstick our warm undertone gets a lovely coral based pink
which compliments the olives and golds in her skin.


Our cool undertone model
got a blue based pink, breathing magic into her complexion and making her teeth
look super white.


Valentine’s lip number three is a feisty bold red lip – the
ultimate Valentine’s lip! Girls with a cool toned complexion look amazing in a
blue based red, 


while warm toned girls are best in a true red or an orange
based red. (pictured here in a true red).


The lip models in this story were actually 2 of my makeup assistants! Whitney is our cool toned girl, and Therese is my warm complected model. 

Here are a couple of bts shots.
