If you’re thinking of giving those run-of-the-mill ideas a run for their money and having an unconventional Valentine’s Day date outdoors, we’d usually suggest going makeup free. But since it is V-Day we’re suggesting you raid your vanity kit and go the extra (makeup) mile. Here’s a quick 1-2-3 guide to getting your outdoorsy look right…

Step 1: The obvious start to any Valentine’s Day look , be it day or night, is the Lakmé CC cream which, let us remind you, besides being the perfect primer is also enriched with SPF 20 making it perfect for the outdoors. Blemish free skin that’s also sun protected? Hurrah to that!

Step 2: Move on to the next essential – the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal in black (although we do admit, the brown looks fantastic too, especially if you’ve got lighter eyes) – and line your lower waterline. Steer clear of anything on the upper eyelid; you definitely don’t need that kind of drama.

Step 3: Keep things easy breezy with a nude or pink lip colour. Our favourites in terms of colour as well as application are the Lakmé Aquashine Lip Colours in Chestnut and Carnation. They’re subtle, last long and glide on really easily.

While the verdict is still out on whether or not you need to employ some blush, we’re going to be in the negative about that. Your cheeks are going to get that rosy flush the minute you sweat even a tad or spend too much time in the Sun; plus  natural flush > blush, right?
