We've teamed up with Smashbox to create an ultra-feminine, rosy-hued makeup look which is perfect for Valentine's Day.

Whether you're going on a date or spending the night with your best friends, this look is guaranteed to catch some eyes.

Valentine's makeup look with Smashbox

Modelled by our beautiful Beauty Set Member, Huma, the team created a romantic pink and purple eye look complete with a stunning matte red lip. Here is how to achieve this beautiful look.


Begin by creating a glowing, flawless base. Huma's skin was prepped with the Photo Finish Radiance Foundation Primer and then the makeup artist used Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation to create a perfected, medium coverage finish.


Warm up the complexion with the rich bronze shades of The Cali Contour Palette. Using both the bronze tones and the shimmering highlighters, add definition and build a stunning glow on the top of your cheekbones, brow bone and on the Cupid's bow.


Add a flush of pink to your cheeks with the L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Colour in the shade Beverly Hills Blush. Apply your colour by taking the Cream Cheek Brush and taking the product from the stick and pressing on to the apples of your cheeks.


Next, move on to the eyes. Taking a fluffy crease brush, apply the shimmering pink shade from the Cover Shot Eye Palette - Ultra Violet in to the crease and diffuse the colour. Build up the pigment and blend out seamlessly to crease a blown-out effect. Deepen the outer corner of your eye with the shimmering plum shade.


Take both shades underneath your eyes, beneath the lower lash line, to add intensity. Blend the colours softly to match the blown out effect on your lid. Line your upper and lower lash line with the Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner in Sumatra.


With your finger, press the shimmering dual-tone violet to the centre of your eye. Tapping the colour on to your lid with your finger will allow the pigment to appear and sparkle more intensely. Complete your eyes with layers of Smashbox Superfan Mascara.


Complete your gorgeous Valentine's look with a romantic red lip. Line with the Always Sharp Line Liner in Crimson and place the Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Bawse on top. With a soft matte finish which smudge-proof, the lipstick makes the perfect Valentine's lip product for staying in place through drinking and eating.
