Valentines Inspiration: Smoke and Smoulder

Looking for some Valentines Day inspiration? For an unforgettable look, smoke and smoulder for your mate night or date night.

Create the ultimate smokey eye with the Elemental Artistry Palette. Your creativity isn’t limited with 12 universal shades, perfect for all skin tones. Try a mysterious dark smokey eye or go bold with an extreme wing like @ditteschaal created with darker tones. You can brighten your look up with the lighter hues. You can even add a dash of Medea in for a romantic blush, also included in the palette. Effortlessly transform your look with these highly-pigmented shades that are perfect for taking you day to night.

Complete your look with a dash of our long lasting, colour intense Antimatter Lipstick. Find your perfect match in our large range of shades.

Go for a nude pout and let your eyes do all the talking. Our bestselling Bang Antimatter Lipstick, works for all skin tones and with its semi-matte cushioned finish it will leave your lips looking hydrated. It’s smooth, creamy texture glides on effortlessly. It is the perfect go to shade if you are in a rush, keep it in your handbag for any last-minute dates you get invited on. You can never be too prepared!

Want the shock value? Vamp up your smokey eyes with a classical red lip, you are sometimes told to pick one feature but here at Illamasqua we don’t believe in restrictions. A bold lip and smokey eye can work so well together, the dash of red on your pout will enhance the mysterious dark eyes. Giving you a powerful, showstopper glam look.

Not feeling a nice nude or a romantic red? Go dark like @nyane for a striking look taking your smokey eyes on to another level. Feel as though your look is too dark? Brighten your face with a dusting on Beyond Powder to highlight or a dab of Iconic Chromes on the inner eye. The natural light will bounce off different areas of the face and illuminate the look.

As Valentines nears, stand out from the crowd and smoulder your date. This is one look you can have fun with and fall in love with all year round by pairing with different lipsticks to mix it up.
