It’s nearly Valentine’s Day and love is in the hair! Get the perfect date night look with some amazing tips from our expert make-up, nail and hair stylists!
The Irresistible Red
‘The key to a bold lip is liner’, says our resident MUA, Emma, ‘Lightly trace the outline of the lips in small strokes, gradually building up to give stronger definition. Use Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in ‘An Affair’ for a perfect bold red’.
Use a GHD curve to create beautiful laid back tendrils. In the style of a hot roller, clip each piece of hair at the bottom, roll up and hold for a few seconds. Unwind the hair in the direction of the curl to give it an extra bit of help. Brush through lightly with your fingers to break up the ringlet and finish with a quick spray of blow LTD’s #10MinuteBlow Party Proof Hairspray.
Date Night Eyes
Who says you have to go neutral? Stand up from the crowd with a dramatic pop of colour. Our expert MUAs recommend Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sapphire, followed by a bright blue liner on your waterline to give your sultry stare extra ummph.
Luminize your skin with a soft highlighter to create an amazing dewy glow. Emma’s favourite is Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint; ‘it’s really easy to use and comes in shades for all skin tones’.

Big bushy brows are almost old school now, but paired with a natural, dewy face they create the ultimate ‘no effort’ look! We recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Kit.

Make your lips extra kissable by emphasising your cupid’s bow. Create a subtle look with a dab of cream highlighter, but for an extra special look use a sharp gold eyeliner pencil to create an exaggerated bow and blend up across the top of your lip. Our pros recommend Studio 10 I-Lift Longwear Liner for a look that will last all night long.
Double Trouble Liner
Don’t put that liner away just yet! Add a flash of glamour to Eyeko’s Eye Do Liquid Liner with an additional line of gold!
Elegant Cat Eye
Get a super-fluttery look with a softened flick. Create the flick using a pointed liquid eyeliner pen, wait for the line to dry and using an angled brush coat the line with a dark brown shadow and blend out. Upgrade your look with an express lash treatment by our expert stylists!
Adding a hint of non-permanent colour to your locks is a great way to mix things up for Valentine’s Day. Lighter hair colours suit warmer tones like pink and peach whilst darker haired seductresses should go for for rich purples, blues and greens.
Double up your favourite deep red/berry lip as an eyeshadow cream! Prime your lids, add a small amount of lipstick to your eyeshadow brush and blend into the crease and lower lash line. Add a dab of gold shimmer in the inner corner of your eyes, our resident MUA, Emma, recommends MAC’s Gorgeous Gold Eyeshadow.
Red is always in on V Day! Our expert nail technician, Katie, recommends Essie’s Russian Roulette followed by a slick of high shine clear polish.
Embrace your inner Queen with a simple crown braid. Our expert hair stylist, Lauren, recommends using Tigi’s Oh Bee Hive Dry Shampoo to add some serious texture to make sure our braid stays puts put!
