Nordstrom Proves You Can Create the Perfect Valentine's Day Look With Only 3 Products
I don't have any big plans for Valentine's Day. With my wedding less than a month away, I'm looking forward to doing something on the low-key side: dinner and a movie, a casual night in . . . you get the drill. And while I'm fully on board with this low-maintenance Valentine's Day, I don't want to throw all romance out the window. Whether we end up at our local pizza joint or stay in watching episodes of Shark Tank, I'll still make an effort. I may not be putting on an LBD and cat eye, but a great pair of jeans and a clean makeup look that's taken up just a notch will do the job.
I hung out with Derek Miller, Nordstrom's East Coast beauty director, to get his advice on how to achieve an easy but elevated makeup look for my low-key night ahead. What I learned? It's not about the number of products but the quality of them and, of course, how you use them. Miller proved to me that with just three key products — a great lip product, a brightening blush, and some sort of eye makeup — you can look like a million bucks.
If you're planning on doing something a little more "extra" this week, have no fear. You still can just use these three products. Just go deeper, darker, and more dramatic.
