With all the hubbub surrounding the release of the new 50 Shades of Grey film this February 14, you might think it’s your only source of sexy inspiration this Valentine’s Day. But there’s plenty to be had, and fortunately a lot of it is much more subtle than the infamous Mr. Grey.
This year, Priv, the on-demand beauty app that brings beauty professionals to your home or workplace, is offering a collection of three different makeup looks inspired by New York City’s own Queen of the Night show.
Queen of the Night is an immersive theatre production that has received several rave reviews since it opened in 2014. Combining theatre, dining, and role playing in a sensual setting inspired by Mozart’s The Magic Flute, it’s an experience every New Yorker should try at least once.
But even if you haven’t experienced Queen of the Night, you can still appreciate the beautiful makeup looks curated by Priv for Valentine’s Day. The magical atmosphere of the show turns out to be the perfect one to recreate on your eyelids, with smokey purple and silver glitter making gorgeous looks for a night out with your date or with your friends. Here’s how I looked when one of Priv’s makeup artists gave me the smokey purple look:
The best part of these looks might be that Priv brings the professionals to you (to do your makeup, hair, and whatever other beauty service you might need). That’s a big bonus on Valentine’s Day, when your usual salon will inevitably be crowded with everyone getting ready for their big nights out.
