Want to get his attention in all the right ways this Valentine’s Day? DESIblitz shares our top 5 sexy makeup looks to help you look effortlessly stunning!
If you're not wearing a red dress, how about wearing a bright, bold red lipstick instead?
Whether it’s your first Valentine’s Day together or your tenth, putting in that extra little effort with your makeup will really make his jaw drop.
Sometimes it’s easy to get into a style rut with your makeup as well as your clothes.
But don’t panic! We at DESIblitz have rounded up our 5 favourite sexy and glamorous makeup looks for you to try this Valentine’s Day.
Dark and Sexy
Opt for a darker take on the red lip as seen on Deepika Padukone with her gorgeous oxblood coloured lips.
This look focuses on the pout, so take great care to emphasise it.
Pair lips with either fresh cheeks or a subtle bronze on the cheeks and winged eyeliner and lashings of mascara to complete this dangerously sexy look.
50 Shades of Grey
With the immense hype of Fifty Shades of Grey, sexy and seductive has taken on a whole new meaning.
Makeup artists Irene Mahmud Khan and Farah Dhukai offer two alluring looks inspired by the film and books. Using grey tones and heavy black eyeliner, you will surely stop your Valentine date in his tracks.
This grey smoky eye look is a great evening look. You can team the ashy eyes with a light pink highlighter and blush to really offset the eyes, keeping the rest of your face girly and neutral.
A cooler look, you can create a gorgeous pinky lip by combining MAC Lip Pencil in Whirl (£12.50) and Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Pure Hollywood ($20.00/£13.00).

The Nude Look
The stunning Aishwarya Rai seen here (shot for Verve Magazine) with nude lips, subtle eyes, matching nails and a sexy red dress is enough to make anyone’s jaw drop!
Get this look with fawn coloured lipsticks, such as MUA Matte Lipstick in Fawn Fancy (£1.00) – it looks great on Desi skin.
This looks best with contoured cheekbones. Try Sleek Face Contour Kit (£6.49) and finish by applying a touch of highlighter to the top of the cheeks.
Always take your dress or outfit with you when looking for the perfect nail shade to match. Swatch the polishes to make sure the colour is the closest match.
If you’re not wearing a red dress, how about wearing a bright, bold red lipstick instead as seen on L’Oréal ambassador, Freida Pinto?
She pairs this super bright shade with kohl-lined eyes that have been gently smudged.
This is so that they are not too striking. You can finish off the glowing look with a little pop of colour on the cheeks.
Try L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pure Reds collection, or alternatively Queen’s Vesuvius Liquid Lipstick in Vesuvian Red (£22). This gives you all the high-shine without the stickiness.
Smoky and Sultry
Mila Kunis is undoubtedly the queen of sexy and smoky eyes – it is her signature look after all!
This look is perfect for the evening and looks great no matter what you are wearing.
Keep the rest of the face fresh with a pop of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks to lift the complexion. Keep your lips nude or add a slick of gloss.
Remember ladies – try to keep the focus on only one or two things. You don’t want to look like you are caked in makeup!
These sexy looks are easy to try and will give you some inspiration in recreating these makeup looks for that special night. Make his heart flutter in the wink of an eye!
