Hong Kong-based makeup artist Angie Pasley (right) has touched up the faces of fashion designers Anna Sui, Diane von Furstenberg and tennis professional Maria Sharapova. Here, she shares her professional tips on how to create the perfect lips this Valentine's Day, using the Becca makeup range.

'To create a subtle yet sexy lip, [apply] Becca's Beach Tint [Lane Crawford IFC Mall and Times Square] to the upper and lower lip using your index finger. This product contains vitamin E, plus a gorgeous berry lip stain, perfect for a Valentine's daytime date.

'For an extra luminous sheen, dab a layer of Becca's Brazilian Bronzing Sheen on top. This lightweight formula can also be added to the cheeks and eyes, giving you a true Valentine's Day glow. For a fuller pout, define the lips using the Becca Nude Liner. This pencil has a skin-tone colour that can be used outside the lip line to highlight the lips, prevent the lips from bleeding and [to hide] any imperfections.'
