Michelle Phan's Romantic Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial (VIDEO)

Michelle Phan is back again, this time with a lovey-dovey makeup tutorial for Valentine's Day. The typical pink and red color scheme comes together to create a nice balance for a romantic night out -- whether you're going to a fancy dinner or a sexy salsa club.

Although the effervescent eyeshadow and glossy lips are the focus, Phan shows us that the best looks start with some TLC for your skin. Before putting on any makeup, Phan recommends applying a mud or clay mask (or even both!) because they help to diminish toxins and give your skin a radiant boost. Phan uses Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud.

In addition to the facial mask, Phan discusses the importance of activation gel, which "oxygenates the skin," meaning it supplies some good 'ol oxygen to the face to really get your mask up and running. Whoa, Valentine's Day really does inspire some good skincare tips. Who knew?!

Watch the full makeup tutorial above and take your date-night look to the next level.
