Sultry V-Day Date-Night Makeup Inspired By Givenchy

Usually Valentine's Day makeup is a kitschy no-brainer: shiny red lips, pink glitter, maybe some baby blue shadow to stay consistent with the whole sugary sweetheart theme. But let's face it -- you're not in 7th grade anymore, and that obnoxiously festive color combo is hardly forgivable even when the holiday begs for it. In fact, ever since we caught sight of the backstage pictures from Givenchy's Spring/Summer 2010 haute couture show, we couldn't help but be enamored with a much more seductive, more alluring, more mature take on date-night makeup. Twinkling smoky eyes featuring darker than dark midnight blue shadow and brick red lips... who knew it was possible to pull off smoky eyes and bold lips at the same time? While full-on stage makeup may scare your date off, you can still adapt the runway look for an ultra-romantic night out with sparkly navy shadow and matte lips. Check the slideshow for some products that'll help capture the captivating look! Photo Credit: Jak & Jil
