Beauty Tips with Nicole Toledo: Valentine's Day Makeup Inspiration

Maybe it's because my mom was born on Valentine's Day but I've always been enamored with the holiday, all of the pink and red, and oh the hearts. Whether you too are in love with the day or you want to rebel against it, I have a look for you. Valentine's Day is fast approaching and it's got me thinking about makeup looks for the day. One look has me thinking about embracing my girlie side by wearing high pony a la Audrey Hepburn or sporting a Barbie-like super Feminine Pink lipstick.
