5 Valentine’s Day Makeup Ideas
Posted on February 07 2017
Valentine’s Day is coming, and we have everything pink and red on the brain. And while we’re crushing hard on the festive colors, they aren’t the only hues you can wear to celebrate. Need some inspiration for the big night? If you’re hitting the town with friends or heading out for a romantic evening, we’ve got you covered—whether you love the holiday’s signature colors or not.
Here are 5 tips guaranteed to get the party started:
1. Rock a classic red lip and lush lashes
Clearly this combo isn’t groundbreaking, but that doesn’t make it any less impactful. Start with our Lipliner in Red and then swipe on our lipstick in Pomegranate—the perfect deep scarlet—and add a few coats of Black Mascara to your lashes. Feeling adventurous? Add a touch of sparkle to your pout by dabbing on some glitter.
2. Go for the gold
If the traditional Valentine’s Day hues aren’t your thing, opt instead for a dramatic black winged liner and top it off with gold shadow at the inner and outer corners of your peepers. Use our Mineral Eyeshadow in Egyptian Gold and smooth Precision Liquid Liner in Raven to get the look.
3. Try subtle touches of pink
Whether you want to keep it light and fresh or create something more intense, our Vibrant Pink Blush and lipstick in Dollhouse Pink will do the trick. Our blush can be re-applied to achieve the desired richness of color—use it one your cheekbones all the way up to your temples.
4. Make a statement with your eyes
You can’t go wrong with a smokey eye and glossy lip. Depending on your skin tone, use our Eyeshadow in Dove, Plume, or Charcoal to create the perfect pop. Add Sheer Gloss in a deep plum (like Mania) or shimmering champagne (like Liquid Bliss) to complete the look.
5. Say it with your nails
This is best time of year to mix pink and red, so why not use both colors in your manicure this week? Classic Red and Bloom are the perfect festive pairing. If you’re going for a bold look on your face and want to keep your nails simple, stick to a shimmering neutral shade like Moonstone.
