Whether you are having a low-key Valentine’s Day snuggling with your squeeze at home, or you’re getting all dolled up to go out, you’ll want your lips to look and feel kissable. (After all, that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about!) Whatever the night holds for you, we’ve rounded up the hottest in lip trends from Shoppers Drug Mart to make your smile dazzle whether your look is classic, romantic or totally bold.
For an evening out:
For a night out on the town with your love (or if you’re on the prowl!), try saturated reds, which create a classic, sassy Marilyn Monroe look. As an added tip, try layering your lips with chocolate browns and deep reds, using the brown as a base and the red as the top layer, to achieve more intensity. To get an oxblood red, apply a chocolate brown, like Chestnut in the Be Legendary Lipstick series by Smashbox and layer a bold red over top of it, such as Infrared in Be Legendary Lipstick by Smashbox, $22.
