The Colour of Love: Valentines Day Edition

With Valentines Day tomorrow, love is in the air. So when you think of love, what colour do you think of?

For most, red would come to mind as it signifies passion. For others, it’s berry shades and pink that denotes romance.

Below are some of the beautiful shades of red, berries and pinks to help you create the perfect look for a memorable Valentines Day.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture – RRP A$50*
If you want staying power on lips but hate the heavy feel of lipsticks, then this ingenious lip stain from YSL will give your lightweight vibrant lips with superior wearability that won't run, streak or fade. Shade #9 Rouge Laque (a classic red) is the perfect colour for the evening.

Natio Antioxidant lip shine in Love – A$11.95*
With the shine of a gloss and hydration of a lip balm, layer this beautiful bright red over your lips to make it extra kissable.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Shade No. 10 - RRP A$9.95*
Created in collaboration by Kate Moss, this high impact yet lightweight lipstick with medium buildable coverage will have you looking as sultry as Ms. Moss on Valentines night.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Wet Cranberry Shine – RRP A$42*
A rich cranberry red that gives unbelievable shine. Slip this on and you know your lips will be as irresistable as the cherries in your dessert.

Endota Spa Nail Paint in Chadstone – RRP A$20*
Named after the fashion capital of Australia, you know you’ll be sporting the hippest nail shade on the evening with the fun and vibrant shade of red.

Natio Nail Colour in Valentine – A$9.95*

If pink or berry is more your thing, these shades below will kickstart your mood for romance.

Orly Nail Lacquer in Vixen - A$18.95
For the berry inclined beauty, you can’t go past this shade of deep cherry for some sultry vampiness - on your digits at least.

China Glaze in Innocence
The perfect muted French manicure pink for those who wants pretty pink nails without being the attention seeker.

Bobbi Brown in Apricot – A$58
This deceptively named blush gives just the right amount of warm pinky-peach to the apple to cheeks. You’ll look flushed with love all day long.

The Proposal
If your intuition is telling you to expect a Tiffany Box to brought out sometime during dinner on Valentines Day, perhaps you should co-ordinate with some minty blue statement nails.

Chanel Riva - RRP A$39

For the ultimate glamour Tiffany blue shade you cannot go past Riva. 2 coats for beautiful glossy colour with a slight sheen and glitter that will go perfectly with your new bling bling.

China Glaze For Audrey - US$7 

Paying homage to Audrey Heburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, this opaque minty blue is the closest matching shade to the blue box. Make this a staple shade in your collection .
