Chanel’s Girl Next Door

For an innocent take on date night, look to Chanel’s little princess’s . Fresh skin and back to basics eyes were brought to life with a pop of colour on the lips. Turn to ByTerry’s Terrybly Velvet Rouge lip-gloss to add a rosy shine, whilst Chanel’s Harmonie Poudre Belle Mine Marinière N°1 will add a healthy flush to your cheeks. Jo Malone will seal the look by leaving you smelling of Red Roses.

Dark vampy lips will up the ante on any Valentines date. Guerlain’s Kiss Kiss in 561 will be sure to sweep a lust worthy shade across your pout. If you’re playing up lips keep eyes pared back with softly defined eyes using NARS’ St-Paul-De-Vence Duo Eyeshadow. Polished eyebrows and Chanel N°5 will pull it all together.
