To celebrate Valentine's Day and get you in the mood for the month of love, we are kicking off with The Luxe of Love; a fabulous campaign featuring four of our gorgeous ambassadors. The campaign centres around four of our favourite looks for Valentine's Day, with gift and product ideas on how you can recreate the look.

There is nothing more glamorous or embodies Valentine's Day more than a classic red lip, but this year, we have changed things up with jewelled and berry-rich tones, which make the perfect combination of modernity and ladylike sophistication.

The gorgeous Lydia Elise Millen was the obvious choice to showcase this glamorous look. With her tousled caramel locks, perfectly bronzed complexion and gorgeous smile, she embodies the berry goddess we all so want to emulate when it comes to Valentine's Day.

With subtle hints of colour in the eyes, the main focus is the berry lip, all finished off with a spritz of perfume that leaves a trail of seductive fragrance lingering behind you...

The 50 Shades of Berry Look for Valentine's Day

In order to recreate Lydia's look, we have put together the products we used on her, so you too can look just as glamorous and gorgeous on your Valentine's night out.

50 shades of berry

    A dark berry lip is the perfect way to update a classic red Valentine's look as it's super on trend and a little bit mysterious. Jewelled and dark berry tones add a hint of glamour and sophistication to any complexion, adding depth to your makeup look and giving it that fresh twist to add surprise this Valentine's Day. The Illamasqua Anti Matter Lipstick in Spectra is a beautiful jewelled ruby hue that leaves the lips with a seductive wash of berry colour. It's creamy formulation also glides over the lips, adding essential hydration and conditioning them, so they are perfectly prepped and ready for that Valentine's kiss...
  • 2.NARS Velvet Shadow Stick in Usbek

    NARS Velvet Shadow Stick in Usbek
    When you have dark berry lips, your eyes don't need as much attention. Instead, a sheer wash of colour with a shimmering shadow can add depth and intensity without ever looking too much. On Lydia, we used the NARS Velvet Shadow Stick in Usbek, which doesn't require too much blending, making it perfect to finish your look without requiring too much effort. The dark purple shade can easily be blended out to add a sheer wash of colour, which is slightly different than the typical smokey eye look, making it the perfect addition to refresh your makeup look.

    If you don't think purple shadow will suit you, then theBalm's Appetit Eyeshadow collection will be your perfect companion. We love nothing more than a makeup product which perfectly corresponds with our current mood, and this Eat Your Heart Out palette from theBalm makes the greatest addition to any Valentine's makeup collection. The gorgeous array of colours can be built up in any way to suit your colouring, but don't ovredo it or go too dark as your dark berry lips will be doing the talking!
  • 4.Michael Kors Sexy Blossom

    This beautifully-scented fragrance, which gets you in the mood for Spring is the perfect last addition, which will pull your entire makeup look together. With notes of Rose Petals, Peony, Freesia and Lily of the Valley, the perfume also has a hint of Sandalwood and Musk which offset the floral sweetness, to bring a seductive twist, perfect for Valentine's Day.
