Valentine’s Day Beauty: Shades You’ll Love

Valentine's Day lipsticks at Hudson's Bay

However you celebrate February 14, it’s a fun occasion to experiment with a bold beauty look.

Take Valentine’s Day and all its trappings by the hand and make it your own this year. A night out with your besties or your boo keeps the mood festive and provides an opportunity to try new makeup colours and techniques. Here are a few of our favourites.

A Romantic Lip
Classic red shades are enhanced by skin-nourishing hyaluronic acid (Guerlain) and high-gloss lacquer-inspired finish (Shu Uemura). The long-lasting, super-saturated colour of Dior Rouge will help you put your best red forward all evening.
