St. Valentines Day is the perfect pretext to indulge in blood red roses, boxes of deliciously delectable chocolates, and passionate kisses shared against the backdrop of breathtaking city silhouettes. Hence, on February 14 th cast aside the mundane and revel in all things tantalizingly sensual, wickedly decadent and sinfully pleasurable. Skip the every day shower and run yourself a candle lit bath, drizzled with aromatic oils. Listen to romantic tunes by Sade or Michael Bublé as you scrub your skin into creamy perfection. Focus on the intimate solitude of the moment and savor the beauty of contentment. After stepping out, dry yourself with opulent %100 Turkish Cotton towels. Finally, for a body that begs to be touched, liberally apply Laura Mercier’s Soufflé Body Crème all over, paying special attention to elbows and knees.

On Valentines Day even if you are sharing a romantic meal with your significant other in the privacy of your home, dress up to the nines. Unearth that sexy evening gown from the shrouded corners of your wardrobe and pair it with a pair of impossibly high strappy stilettos. Let your look pulsate with sexappeal.


Crimson is the color of sizzling passion. Lure him to the red hot fervor of your desire by draping a scarlet silk gown over your irresistible body. Remember some men like it picante.


Back is the color of dark desire. Smoking with mysterious magnetism, the absence of all color epitomizes timeless elegance, understated glamour and simple panache. For this reason slip into the little black dress that never goes out of style.


Pink is the color of youthful innocence. Indeed, the naïve beauty of pink’s wispy wholesomeness can be the most potent aphrodisiac. Men are drawn to pure beauty they can protect and worship. Thus, for Valentines Day choose a powder pink dress defined by delicate weightlessness as your elixir of l’amour.


White is the color of brazen confidence. A woman clad in the striking boldness of white demands to be noticed. This year, in order to hypnotize your valentine, stand out from the crowd in a frothy cloud of a dress.

Makeup is the best way to accentuate the captivating exquisiteness of a spectacular ensemble. Glamour sans a picture-perfect face is like a peacock devoid of blue-turquoise feathers. On Valentines Day try Fashionlines’ ultimate temptress look.

  1. Prep the skin by applying primer.
  2. Cover up blemishes and imperfections with a creamy concealer.
  3. Apply a sheer layer of balanced foundation.
  4. Set concealer and foundation with loose powder.
  5. Apply a tan colored eyeshadow all over the lid; from lashes to brow.
  6. Apply a white colored eyeshadow at the inner corners of the eyes to illuminate and create the illusion of eyes being farther apart.
  7. Use an angular brush to apply black-kohl colored eyeshadow over the lid, extending outward.
  8. Define the lower lash-line with soft brush strokes. Start from the inner eye and move outward. Finally, meet the top color, creating a smoky cat-eye.
  9. Using a black eye-liner fill in the top and bottom membrane around the eyes.
  10. Coat the lashes with two coats of mascara.
  11. Brush the eyebrows.
  12. If necessary fill in the brows with a pencil.
  13. Using a blush brush contour the cheekbones.
  14. Using feather strokes define the lips with red lip-liner.
  15. Fill in the pout with crimson lip color.
  16. Dab the meatiest part of the lower lip with glossy lacquer.

St. Valentines Day is a celebration of love. That's why even if you do not have a significant other, spoil yourself with strawberries and champagne, send charming heart shaped cards to loved ones and dress to impress. Moreover, convince your single friends to join you in savoring a culinary feast, complete with vine and chocolate delights.

On the other hand, if you have a lover with whom you can explore the boundaries of bliss, make sure to put on your French lace lingerie.
