Thick. Wet. Gloss. Lusty eyes and cherry lips, a date night wouldn’t be complete without these things. It was only suitable that we enlisted makeup maven Karina Moore, photographer Derek Wood and muse Cailin Russo to bring this romantic vision to life right in time for Valentine’s Day. Pushing the creativity to the limits, the looks are dripping from lashes to lips.
To prep for any one of these looks, start out with this Dermalogica moisturizer. Then, apply this Face and Body foundation by Mac and this Bobbi Brown concealer. If you’re needing to brighten up a winter face (hey, not everyone rocks the Los Angeles tan 365 days a year), we’re obsessed with the Bobbi Brown bronzing brick and this NARS bronzer. Finally, use this Mac eyebrow pencil to keep your eyebrows full and thick.
Glossy eyelashes are a bit of a curveball, however they are sensual and effortless. Start out with a plum mascara – Almay mascara in Plum is our pick. Top it off with a coat of Anastasia Beverly Hills waterproof mascara. To complete the look, line your top lid with simple black, waterproof Mac eyeliner.
To nail the glossy eyelid look, try YSL lipgloss as eyeshadow. Our favorite is their Golden Gloss in Golden Macadamia, simply apply from lash line to eyelid crease.
Knowing how to do a fantastic red lip is an invaluable piece of information. Seriously. We are about to gift you with the knowledge how to acquire a Rihanna-esque pout within five minutes… and it is so incredibly easy. First, line lips with Smashbox lip liner in ruby. Fill in lips with NARS semi-matte lipstick in Red Lizard. Then, top it off Mac Pro Longwear Gloss Coat – this will protect you from any sort of smudge-related faux pas.
Don’t be afraid to get wet – mix a glossy lip and eye to create a look that is luminescent and irresistible.
