On Valentine's Day, let yourself be truly romantic, mysterious and irresistible. New make-up version by national Lancôme make-up artist Ekaterina Ponomareva

Makeup will first of all create a mood for you, and then conquer your other half. Dark or even languid shades of makeup will make the image mysterious, but no less romantic.

  1. Prepare your skin for makeup. Moisturize with Advanced Génifique Youth Activator to achieve a fresh complexion.

  1. Don't forget about skin care around the eyes - they should shine this evening. Traces of fatigue and worries will be erased by gentle care from the same Advanced Génifique line. Apply care to the orbital bone, spreading the cream from the outer corner of the eye to the inner one.

  1. Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation will make your skin smooth and long lasting for 24 hours.

  1. Hypnôse Palette 14 Smokey Chic is responsible for the sparkle of the eyes. We use a silver palette so as not to burden the image. Apply a rich pearlescent shade on the upper eyelid, gently blending the borders to achieve the effect of wide eyes.

  1. Hypnôse L'Absolu de Noir mascara will give you more than just incredible volume. Just one stroke of the brush - and the look will become truly hypnotic, attracting the attention of others. And the extra-black color effectively contrasts with the mother-of-pearl of the eyelids.

  1. But the real drama is just beginning, because we have L'Absolu Rouge Drama Ink in our hands - a liquid matte lipstick in shade 481 Nuit Pourpre. Ultra-pigmented and long-wearing, it will give you a feeling of confidence all day (and all night). At the same time, the lipstick is not felt at all on the skin and creates the effect of bare lips.

Now you are definitely ready for a romantic, bright, unforgettable meeting. And you are the queen of the evening!

With love, Lancôme Russia.
