The Sephora Glossy mouths off on the top tips for perfect date-night lips.

You’ve found the perfect outfit, the perfect scent, and the perfect man—er, manicure, so now slick on a romantic lip color to complete your Valentine’s Day ensemble. Try these three simple steps for stay-put color that lasts from drinks to dinner and beyond. RENEE TRILIVAS

PREP & PRIME:
Smooth on a lip scrub to buff away dry, flaky skin, then condition lips with a moisturizing balm.
TIP: For ultimate staying power, pat on a small bead of primer to lock pigment in place.

SKETCH & SWIPE:
Starting at the cupid’s bow, outline lips with a matching liner and blend inward with a lip brush, filling in the entire mouth. Next, swipe on lip color beginning at the center of the lips.
TIP: Use a universal clear lip liner for subtle definition that works with all shades.

SET & SEAL:
Blot, then set lipstick by pressing a translucent powder over lips with a shadow brush before layering on a second coat of color.
TIP: Trace the outer edges of your lips with a highlighting concealer and blend to perfect the lip line and prevent bleeding.

BONUS TIP:
Couple lasting lips with fluttery lashes to amp up the look in the wink of an eye. Try swiping on volumizing mascara or go all-out with a set of false lashes. Lip up, and lash out—happy Valentine’s Day!
