Valentine’s Day special: Date night lipstick shades that are not red

Valentine’s Day is all about love, hearts and all things red. So it does not come as a surprise when you spot women wearing red outfits with matching lipsticks on dates. However, at BeBeautiful we believe in doing things differently. Therefore, let’s give your red lipstick a break this Valentine’s and give other shades a fair chance. We’ve rounded up four shades below that will make you look gorgeous on date night.


Deep wine

Bubblegum pink

Nothing complements a stunning black or cream dress better than a deep wine shade. This colour is your safe bet when you want all the attention to be on your lips. Wear two quick swipes of the Lakme 9 to 5 Creaseless Creme Lip Color - Wine Order and bare minimum makeup.


Passionate plum

Bubblegum pink

An adventurous, unexpected shade – passionate plum will make your date go weak in their knees. Especially if you don’t wear bold colours otherwise, this one will definitely make you look special for Valentine’s eve. The Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Matte Sticks Lipstick - Plum Local looks stunning on all skin tones and sits comfortably on your lips without smudging.


Naughty nude

Bubblegum pink

If your nude lipstick collection is only confined to formal settings it’s time to try it out on a date night. The safest shade in lipstick heaven, this colour is also perfect for a makeup newbie. The Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Mild Mauve will survive all the wine and dine so you don’t have to excuse yourself for a reapplication during the date.


Bubblegum pink

Bubblegum pink

Fun, flirty and young, that’s how we describe this shade. Embrace your feminine side with the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color - Silky Blush and a floral or white lace dress to look glamorous and fun at the same time.
