Last Minute Valentine's Day Idea: Date Night Makeup Tips From Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo of Elizabeth Arden

Still fretting about which look to go for this Valentine's Day weekend?

Whether you're with your man or going out with your girls, Elizabeth Arden Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo says to go for "a soft sultry look with a hint of drama." With a smoldering smoky eye and Valentine red on your lips, you'll look sweet, yet daring enough to take on anything the night may bring.   

Here's a quick an easy how-to to keep in mind when recreating this romantic look:

Eyes - Create a smoldering gaze in two super simple steps with the Beautiful Color Eye Shadow ($18.50). Available in 32 different shades, the crease-free formula also helps improve the appearance of signs of aging while protecting your skin from environmental damage. Each sleek, gold and silver mirrored compact includes a sponge-tip applicator.  Then use the Beautiful Color Smoky Eyes Pencil ($18). The smudge tip on the other end of the dual-sided tool helps add the finishing touch. Here's how to get a smokin' hot look.

  • Sweep Smolder from lash line to crease, fading outwards and around to the bottom lash line
  • Apply Glisten to the inner corner of eye
  • Line top and bottom lash lines with the brand's eye pencil in shade Gunmetal

Cheeks - Create a sexy little flush with the Beautiful Color Radiance Blush ($26). The buildable, long-lasting formula is enriched with vitamins and antioxidants to help soothe and protect skin. Optical diffusers instantly blur the look of fine lines. Simply:  

  • Brush shade Romantic Rose onto the apples of the cheeks

Lips - Now for the best part. Start by using the Beautiful Color Precision Glide Lip Liner ($20). Each creamy pencil glides on comfortably to define and contour lips with waterproof, transfer-proof and smudge-proof color that prolongs the wear of lipstick and lipgloss. Begin by:

  • Apply shade Honey on the Cupid's bow by drawing a small "X" at the center of the top lip and rounding it out with half moons. Glide the pencil from the outside corners of the moth blending in to get a fuller rounder looking mouth.

Next, use Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick ($25). The formula is infused with moisture-enriched pigments that provide rich, lasting color and leave your lips feeling soft and smooth. Layer on the color and:

  • Apply shade Valentine, starting from the center of the lips and smoothing outward

And for the final touch, be sure to wear Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss ($18). Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo recommends you:

  • Top with Sunset for added dimension and shine
