Pucker up, Valentine's Day is coming soon! It looks like everyone's social calendar has been brimming with activities since the start of the New Year, and it will continue to do so as well with travel plans and so forth.

Whether it's a quiet night out at your favourite restaurant in Singapore (our pick is Spago or Cut by Wolfgang Puck) or a week in Paris, we think you should look fashionably prepared with bright, red lipstick.

When aiming for a classic look, I always keep my makeup neutral, so I don't look too washed out. A tip: I keep my eyebrows on fleek, with a generous application of mascara. The rest of my face is kept glowy or dewy using my favourite tinted moisturiser. However, I've seen women who've pulled off smokey eyes with red lipstick, and I think they look so gorgeous as well!

If you're looking for Valentine's Day gift ideas, we think red lipsticks make for a wonderful buy! Here are some of the best red lipsticks we think you'll adore.
