Ah, Valentine’s Day. In the spirit of this lovely (pun definitely intended) Hallmark holiday, I have been thinking a lot about love. And wine. Okay, mostly wine. I love wine. 

This Valentine’s Day, I will celebrate my love for wine by drinking it, and also wearing it on my face. Okay, wearing wine-colored makeup on my face.

This is my favorite blush at the moment. I absolutely love the color — a deep mauve-ish red — and think it would work well with any skin tone. It's Revlon Powder Blush in Wine Not ($10.49 at ULTA) not to be confused with Hilary Duff’s early alt hit “Why Not” (love you, girl).

Some other great wine-tone blushes to try:

Pür Minerals Chateau Cheeks in Savvy ($18 at ULTA), Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Plum Wine ($7.99 at ULTA), and NARS Blush in Seduction ($30 at narscosmetics.com)

This lipstick is also Revlon: Super Lustrous Lipcolor in Wine With Everything

I call this "sexy awkward."

I was big into bright-red lipstick for a while, but I have recently transitioned to deeper reds. I think the darker color complements thinner lips and helps them to appear a tad bit plumper. I will take all the plumpness I can get. This lip color would also work well with all skin tones (and lips of any size).

Other wine-colored lipsticks to check out:

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Valparaiso ($27 at narscosmetics.com), NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen ($5.99 at ULTA), NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Scarlet Empress ($27 at narscosmetics.com)

This is one of my favorite nail polishes ever, and I’ve been wearing it all winter. Also Revlon, in Red Raven. (Yay Revlon! Cheap and pretty!)

Checking myself for fever, you know.

A bit subtler than a bright red or a bright pink nail polish, this color is perfect for all events and all seasons. I also love OPI Classic Nail Lacquer in Malaga Wine ($9.50 at ULTA), and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Wine Stock ($9.99 at ULTA).

The best part is, you don't have to limit a wine color to just one element of your look — it looks great simultaneously on lips, cheeks, and nails.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I love you!
