Valentine's Day is date night on steroids. When you want to sex up your makeup look and wow your honey bunny, look no further than this tutorial. These sultry plum hues will make your eyes stand out without overwhelming them with a heavy gray or black. The shadows have subtle shimmer to catch the candlelight but nothing that screams next Bachelor contestant. We've paired the eyes with a pinky nude lip that you won't have to worry about bleeding or constantly touching up all night.
