Valentine’s Day Makeup Hues

V-Day inspiration from two of our fave FP models!

This post comes from our blog intern, Emily!

Feeling sweet and sultry? Sexy and bold? Either way, we have some tips for you to create two very eye-catching looks! The rosy flush and a classic red lip…with help from our ever-talented hair/makeup team.

Meet Julie: the ultimate sweetheart with a smile that shines.

First: Prep the face by moisturizing your lips and face. Apply powder, foundation or a bb cream/tinted moisturizer to help even your complexion. Shape your brows and apply a little mascara.

Choose your rosy pink and apply to your lids. Fill in the corners of your eyes with a lighter or shimmery shade to make eyes appear bigger. Plus, it just looks beautiful!

Add a pink blush to your cheeks for a rosy flush. You can also use a blush (cream or powdered) as your eye color!

For kissable lips, finish with lip balm!




Meet Sabrina: Parisian stunner with lips that were made for red.

Sabrina’s face has been prepped with a little foundation, mascara and brow love.
Pick your signature color, in either a lipstick or stain! A lip stain is used here. For precision, outline and fill in your lips with a fine brush.

Red and gold go beautifully together.
Finish this look with shimmery gold highlighter on the highest point of you face.

  1. What stain is used on Sabrina’s lips? I have a similar skin tone and finding flattering reds can be so tricky.
