The big day is coming up. Roses are being ordered and dinner reservations are being scheduled. Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate your significant other, whether that be a casual night in or a glamorous night on the town.
Follow along to find out our top Valentine’s Day makeup ideas for the bold, feminine, simples, and everything in between.
bold and beautiful
Want to turn heads on your romantic Valentine’s night date? Begin with the eyes. Use a warm-toned brown or nude eyeshadow and apply to the crease. This will give your eye look more definition overall. Next, apply a beautiful, pigmented gold glitter shadow all over your lid to make your eyes POP. Lastly, blend a darker brown into the crease to add final dimension. Finish the eye with a liquid liner to achieve a cat-eye, sultry look.
Use a matte foundation and powder contour to look sculpted and polished. Pop on a warm nude blush to warm up the skin. Finally, let the lips be the showstopper. Apply a stunningly bold matte red lipstick to keep your date’s focus all night long! Want to find your next favorite shade? Pucker up in Estee Lauder’s Paint-On Liquid Lip Color in Controversial!
flirty and feminine
Looking for a makeup idea that encompasses femininity? No problem! Think soft pinks and nudes. For the eyes, keep it fresh! Swipe a subtle pink eyeshadow all over the lid with a medium-tone nude in the crease. For softer looks, it’s all about the lash. Coat your peepers with a mascara that lengthens and thickens. The Clinique High Impact Mascara will do just that.
For foundation, choose a formula that is dewy and glowy. Add light bronzer to the cheeks and forehead to give subtle definition. Use a peony blush and soft highlight to bring out your cheekbones. For lips, go glossy! Choose a lip gloss with pink reflects to bring out your inner girl power.
simple and sensational
Do you typically wear little to no makeup but want to touch up for the big night with your loved one? No problem! You can easily elevate your look with only a few finishing touches.
First, coat your lashes with a lengthening mascara to bring to eyes to life. Secondly, instead of a full-blown foundation, use a concealer under your eyes to brighten, as well as any problem areas on your skin. Blend with a brush or beauty sponge.
Apply a light pink blush and highlight to your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and nose to give your skin an all-over glow. The crowd-favorite theBalm Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter will give you a simple, dewy look. Finally, use a red or pink lip stain to achieve a low-maintenance color all night long. It’s as easy as that!
