Just in time for the most romantic holiday of all, we’ve scoured the web for the most romantic makeup we could find. Whether you’re going out or staying in this Valentine’s Day, check out our picks for soft makeup shades that are perfect for love.
If you don’t know yet what you’ll be wearing this Valentine’s Day, keep your eye makeup options open. A palette of several shades can be a style-saver, and we’ve been loving the Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette ($34). The shades range from bold (lime and aqua) to soft and subtle (peach and pale lilac).
Lip stains are a sexy choice for presenting your pout this Valentine’s Day. Not only are they long-lasting, but they also provide natural-looking color — almost like you’ve just been kissed. Try Stila Lip & Cheek Stain ($24) in Raspberry Crush, a vibrant berry pink. And because it doubles as a cheek stain, you’re getting two products for the price of one.

What better blush for a Valentine’s Day date than Nars The Multiple in Orgasm ($39)? This multitasking product (for lips, eyes and cheeks) is many a beauty maven’s favorite for a reason. The soft finish, easy application and peachy pink shimmer make it a flattering choice for many skin tones. And with a name like Orgasm, anything is possible…
Give your skin some all-over shimmer to brighten up your complexion and give yourself a subtle glow. We love Benefit’s Dandelion ($28) for its ability to make skin look radiant — even despite tiredness. The sheer, soft pink is natural-looking and a great addition to your makeup bag.
