Grab your hearts before Valentine’s Day rolls around, just to give yourself that proper preparation for any fancy dates, outings or maybe just Netflix that may lie ahead for your romantic holiday. As beauty trends are getting more and more creative, so are techniques and application. And what could be more creative than getting into the loving spirit than being an all-around sweetheart in every possible way?

No matter your plans, we’re here to make sure that you’re beautiful. For starters, begin with Gucci Face Luminous Perfecting Concealer before applying your typical foundation. Use the tip of the brush to trace nickel-sized hearts directly under your eyes and fill it in. This will serve as your highlighting. Add the concealer to any other area you deem worthy of an extra glow — hearts can be placed on the bridge of the nose, forehead, and chin. The extra dab of the heart ensures that you’ll give yourself a fresh look for your upcoming outing. Continue your contouring with Gucci Golden Glow Bronzer to add extra depth to your natural shadowing.

If you’re feeling even more like a sweetheart, time to doll it up. Too Faced offers a variety of heart-shaped blushes made for any mood from warm pinks to sensual nudes. Grab your favorite brush and heart away! Nothing can be sweeter.

Top off the look with a classic Betty Boop pout. Nothing could be more adorable or classic. Create the iconic sweetheart look with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine. Multiple shades of deep red to poppy oranges, the hues will satisfy any activity for the evening.
