Whether you're planning a dinner date, spending time with friends, or cozying up at home on February 14, Valentine's Day is a perfect excuse to amp up your makeup. Do you go for a striking red lip that's made for romance or opt for fresh-faced minimalism with radiant shades of rosy nude? Whatever the mood, Gucci's got you covered with this duo of makeup tutorials. Each one uses just four products to create an unforgettable beauty look for any date night—however you choose to define it.
Look 1: The Effortless Nude Glow
"Sometimes you're in the mood for a monochromatic, easier finish, but [that] can be super sultry," says Gucci of mixing radiant rose and nude shades for a date night look that's all about a soft smolder. She anchors the look with warm, tawny Mimi blush and Peau de Rosé highlight, blended together across the cheeks for a complexion-opening boost. The final touches: A buttery nude-pink lip (using Les Nudes) and feathery lashes (courtesy of Eye Love You Mascara).
Look 2: The New Romantic Red Lip
A vibrant matte red lip is "beautiful and classic," says Gucci. She keeps it fresh and easy by painting on the Tomato shade in the Les Rouges compact with a brush before blotting the edges for a soft, pressed-on finish that's "perfect for kissing" On the rest of the face, it's all about a light touch, healthy skin, and soft rosy accents. A wash of Super Loaded Tinted Highlight (Peau de Pêche) brings cheeks to life without looking like makeup, while a subtle blush tone on cheeks and eyes (with Bichette!) brings a touch of romance. No need for touchups.
