Valentine's Day is approaching quickly so the time is just about right to start bundling makeup ideas for that special night. How subtle or dramatic you want to go really depends on your personality and attire, but my preference is obvious...you can never go wrong with a subtle smoke - I strayed a bit by dropping the shadow.
