Whether it’s a romantic evening or a girls’ night out, spice up your Valentine’s Day outfit with the perfect lip color. Austin Woman recently teamed up with Lip Service XO’s Lip Bar to create the five hottest lip shades of the season.
Red lips are classic, and a fire-hydrant red will make your lips pop this Valentine’s Day. Let your lip color be the star by wearing a simple yet sophisticated white or black outfit, such as a little black dress, for a date-night look.

If you want to wear a red lip but prefer a subdued and richer shade, a cherry-hued lipstick is the right choice. This lip color looks great combined with neutral tones, such as a brown, tan or gray off-the-shoulder sweater and dark-wash jeans with high-heeled boots.

A bright-pink lipstick is a must for girls’ night out. Wear this fuchsia shade with either a casual outfit, such as a white top and jeans, or dress it up with a floral-print dress.

Pantone just announced the 2018 color of the year is ultra violet. Stay on trend by wearing a magenta lipstick this Valentine’s Day, and keep with the edgy vibe by pairing your look with a black leather jacket, ripped jeans and hoop earrings.

For those who love a natural look, go for a dusty-rose lipstick. The subtleties of the shade will allow for a heavier eye-makeup look and complements both a date-night outfit and a girls’-night-out look. Opt for some color in your clothing with an olive-green dress, or go for a dressy pink top with jeans and strappy heels.
