Valentine’s Day makeup should be all about the lips, according to celebrity makeup artist Christopher Drummond.

Here are five tips from Christopher on how to get the perfect Valentine’s Day look.



5 Tips for Your Valentine's Day Lips:

  1. Luscious Gloss

    If you are hesitant to wear bright red lipstick, wear a soft red lip gloss instead.
  2. Valentine’s Day is all about kissing the one you love. Be sure to keep your lips hydrated with shea butter. This natural ingredient keeps your lips smoother longer than petroleum. 
  3. Use your lip liner on top of lipstick. This helps to avoid the oblivious line around the lips when your gloss comes off. Lining after your lip color also allows for easier application and blendability.
  4. To feel more romantic, use naturally scented lip products.
  5. For fuller lips, add shimmer (like Christopher Drummond's Relache Ice Eye Shadow) to the inner lips to create the illusion of fullness.
