3 Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks You’ll Fall in Love With
Posted on February 02 2022
We’ll take any excuse to try out a new makeup look, whether we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day in the traditional sense or not. Need some inspiration for the holiday of love? Whether you're going on a date or just feel like getting all dolled up, we’ve got you covered.
Check out three mistakeproof makeup ideas that will have you making heart eyes below.
Bring the Heat
You can’t go wrong with a classic! Keep it sweet and simple with a perfectly winged eye—we’re partial to the kitten eyeliner trend—and pair it with a fiery red lip with a glossy or matte finish. Skip eyeshadow and add a subtle highlight, bronzer or contour to your cheekbones, bridge of nose, arch of the brow, and cupid’s bow.
Pretty in Pink
For a look that doesn’t scream “Valentine's Day” but is still festive, choose monochrome pink. Wear the rosy shade on your eyes, cheeks, and lips and keep it as minimalist or as maximalist as you want—think outside the box about product usage (ie. use lip liner as eyeliner or eyeshadow as blush) and don’t get caught up on achieving an exact color match between products.
Lip Pencil in Fraise (as eyeliner) + Lipstick in Sheer Pink + Powder Blush in Vibrant Pink
Mineral Eyeshadow in Cake + Mineral Blush in Nymph + Matte Luxe Lip in Tutu
Mineral Eyeshadow in Bubblegum + Lipstick in Mauve + Powder Blush in Willow
Go for the Glitter
Shine bright with all things glitter, gold, and pops of bold color on your eyes. Choose a standout shade of eyeliner and pair it with a few vibrant eyeshadow shades all with a sparkling finish—top your look off with a liberal dose of highlighter and a coordinating but understated glossy lip color.
