Valentine’s Day date night makeup looks
If you’re planning on getting dolled up for the most romantic night of the year, take some inspiration from celebrity makeup artist Allan Avendano and his A-list clients. He shares his top tips for achieving the sexiest after-hours Valentine’s Day glam.
“Crimson, berry or oxblood lips always feel so rich and festive,” Avendano says of the sexy scarlet he applied on Sarah Harland.
