I’m excited for V-Day weekend because it gives you an excuse to go out and have a date. It can be with your significant other, or your best friends who want to prove that the holiday isn’t just for couples.

Whether it’s a casual movie night or a more adventurous trip with your friends, you can also use Valentines Day as an excuse to pull off a nice makeup look. We suggest a no-makeup makeup look that can you can glam up easily when the date lasts until morning cocktail hour. For this, grab these six makeup items.

Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source, Glorietta 4.
