Valentine’s Day dates can quickly escalate from a romantic evening to an intimate moment or two. Especially with the lockdown our dates are most likely to be at home with the bedroom just a few tempting inches away. May it be a romantic date with a few glasses of wine or a Netflix and chill type of situation that ends in a make-out session and more, these are the long-wearing and transfer-proof makeup that will keep you looking good before, during, and after a steamy night. 

L'Oréal Paris Infallibe Concealer

A concealer that’s easily blendable and won’t crease or transfer with its long-wearing and waterproof formula. It has high coverage that can hide those pesky zits that come up a night before or those dark circles after a long night.

Benefit Benetint

A classic blush to have, you may have used this during your high school days but the Benetint is perfect when you want a blush that stays on. A fun fact is that it was actually created for an exotic dancer in the 1970s hence its long-staying power and transfer-proof ability. Keep a flushed look before and after your Valentine’s date. 

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

There’s nothing more terrifying than seeing that your full beat has transferred onto the pillow. Seal the deal with this holy grail setting powder that will blur out your skin and keep your makeup from sweating off or even worse rubbing-off on your partner. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade

Eyebrows frame the face and when you’re looking snatched at the start, you might have the awkward-post sex convo with your partner about where did your caterpillars crawl to. The ABH Dipbrow pomade is a sure way to stop that from happening.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

A post-sex smudge eyeliner look can look sexy but that isn’t always the case. Most of the time you just end up looking like a raccoon. Opt for Stila’s trusty waterproof eyeliner that’s jet-black, matte, and will keep your eyeliner sharp and full. 

L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

When safe-proofing your makeup, it’s important to keep your eyes from running. That's why transfer-proof makeup includes a lot of water-proof products. A personal favorite is the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara that’s the ultimate dupe for the Too Face Better Than Sex which gives you spidery long lashes without the clump. It also doesn’t rundown even if you cry, may it be sad tears or pre-O tears during the love holiday – we hope it’s the latter. 

Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment

Having to reapply lipstick throughout the night or washing off lipstick stains from your clothes and sheets after Valentine’s day can get frustrating. A reason why less lipstick is best for sexy times. Opt for lip tint that dries down instantly and are completely smudge-proof such as the NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment that comes in various shades.
