Valentine’s Day is soooo close! Are you ready for your hot date? Get this hot look with Smashbox.

Eyes charm with playful pops of turquoise and bronze and long, fluttery lashes. Luscious lips and cheeks in a juicy melon hue leave him wanting more.

How to create this look?


For touchably-soft skin, smooth PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER all over face. Skin should look naturally gorgeous and glowing – apply your shade of SHEER FOCUS TINTED MOISTURIZER. Wake up eyes and cover up any imperfections by applying HIGH DEFINITION CONCEALER. Get a shine-free finish by dusting HALO HYDRATING PERFECTING POWDER over your t-zone. Give cheeks a soft peach flush by dusting on BLUSH RUSH in PARADISE.


Groom and define brows with BROW TECH. Blend PHOTO FINISH LID PRIMER over lids to keep shadow in place. Using BLENDING BRUSH, sweep the matte beige shade all over lids up to the brow. Blend the matte warm taupe shade from lashline to just above crease. Dab the champagne shade in the inner corners of eyes. For playful definition, press the shimmery azure shade into upper lashline. Tightly line the lower inner rim. Complete the eyes with multiple coats of MASCARA.


Lips look extra kissable in a juicy melon hue. Apply PHOTO FINISH LIPSTICK in SPLENDID, followed by LIP SHINE in MELON DRAMA. A dab of ROLLER GLOSS in PINK SUGAR in the center of the bottom lip make lips naturally plumper and poutier.
