With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start planning your hair, outfit and most importantly: makeup! No matter whether you have a hot date, you’re just going out with your friends or even if you’re staying in, the 14th is a good excuse to look your best and feel gorgeous! We’ll be sharing some of our favourite beauty products with you that will complete your look. From bright and cute to dark and smoky, there’s definitely something for you.

1. Etude House Lash Perm Curl Fix – ‘no makeup, make-up’ look

This look is quite popular in Korea at the moment and sometimes simple is better. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t make a statement with your makeup! This mascara from popular brand Etude House pulls each of your lashes into a perfect curl. What’s more, it doesn’t just come in the standard black or brown: plum and hot pink are options too!

2. It’s Skin Babyface Petit Blusher (03 Romantic Rose) – cute & pretty look

We really love the packaging of this blush and the product itself certainly doesn’t disappoint! Just use the super cute puff applicator to apply the blush on your cheeks and you’re all set. This product even has micro glitter set inside which will make your cheeks really sparkle!

3. 3CE Triple Shadow (nonono) – seductive look

Nothing completes a smoky, sexy look like eyeshadow. But instead of buying three different eyeshadows to create the look, this product is all you’ll need! Either mix all three shades together before applying, or layer each colour on your lid to create more depth. This brand has four other Triple Shadow sets such as ‘body to body’ which is perfect for a romantic style.  

4. Peripera’s Peri Tint Water (01 Cherry Juice) – bright & colourful look

Tint waters are definitely on trend in Korea right now as they help create the popular gradient lip look. The trick here is to apply the tint to the inner side of your bottom lip and then purse your lips to distribute the tint evenly.  This product is perfect for Valentine’s Day as it really draws attention to your lips. Who knows, maybe you’ll get lucky and get a kiss from your crush?

5. Clio Kill Black Waterproof Pen Liner – polished look

If you’re busy working all day on Valentine’s Day and don’t have much time to do your makeup, then this is perfect for you! It won’t fade throughout the day and it doesn’t smudge either, even on oily eyelids. The deep black colour will really make your eyes pop, especially if applied in the trendy puppy liner style.

These are just some of the amazing products on offer by Korean makeup and beauty brands. Hopefully this list has inspired you to do some last minute beauty product shopping for the perfect Valentine’s Day look!
