Valentine's Day, the most romantic day of the year, is the perfect time for love, roses, chocolate and a gorgeous romantic makeup look. Whether you've got a hot date, or hanging out with your besties, a stunning Valentine's Day makeup can definitely transform your evening!
Before starting our makeup journey, we have one important tip for you —— prepare your skin seriously. After all, a clean and fresh base is the key to a stunning look. If you wonder how to glow your skin during the tough winter months, just click here to know!
1. Classic never dies.
When in doubt, go with a clean glowing look with red lip. It is soft, appealing but also sexy. Who can say 'No' to roselike eyelids and cheeks with lip that on fire? The answer is no one.
2. Lovely Soft Pink Makeup
Monochromatic (single-colored) makeup has become popular for a while, and for good reasons. This look will keep your makeup simple but undeniably pretty with only one hue and save time for your hair and dresses. Your soft pink eyeshadow, blush and lipstick combination is just lovely and adorable enough for sweet Valentine's Day, no matter if you're with your significant other or your besties.
What I Need to Achieve these Looks?
This is the part that is most important but easiest to neglect. Want to make sure those dark circles, fine lines and acne won't destroy your night? Want to have glowing but not oily face without creasing? Luckily, we've got you covered.
Step 1: Apply suitable primer to help even complexion
Prime your skin with Klavuu WHITE PEARLSATION Ideal Actress Backstage Cream, then you are good to go! It is the most hard working pearl based primer that helps correct your skin tone, protect you from UV radiant with SPF30 PA++ and provide a natural glow to your skin at the same time. With a thin layer of primer that help you with everything, you can apply a smaller amount of foundation which can be unnoticeable and achieve a natural healthy looking skin.
Step 2: Choose a cushion compact that can save you day
When it comes to Korean makeup products, it's impossible to overlook cushion compact which has recently become popular around the world. A cushion compact is also the secret to glowing skin.
For those who have oily skin and enlarged pores, Klavuu URBAN PEARLSATION High Coverage Tension Cushion would be your Cupid. It provides long-lasting extremely high coverage while minimizing pores, controlling sebum, soothing and brightening skin with orange blossom, lemon balm, quince and pearl extracts..

Step 3 (optional): Use powder to set everything in place
Before applying any other powder-based product on your face, set your makeup with a setting powder first. It not only promises a longer-live makeup by avoiding redundant grease production, but also prevents slides of your makeup.
If you have a higher budget for powder, you must try this Gongjinhyang Mi Jewelry Powder from The History of Whoo. It is a life-changing fine powder that will not lead your face cakey. Instead, the jewelry and natural ingredients in it will hydrate, brighten, smoothen and revitalize your skin.The end result is a glowing and gorgeous look after the final touch.
If you don't want to splurge on powder but still want to control excess oil secretion without skin drawing, try the COSRX Sebum Centella Mineral Powder. This super fine mineral powder adheres to your skin lightly just like air, controls the excess sebum while leaves moisture to present smooth skin texture.
Step 4: Blush that Carry out Your Inner Love.
Blush is extremely NECESSARY on Valentine's Day. It is a symbol of crush, affection, and feminine softness.
