As Valentine’s Day approaches, it’s time to get excited about the endless beauty possibilities that this holiday brings. Whether you’ve got a hot date, casual dinner, or drinks with friends planned, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to try your hand at a fun new look. If you’re unsure about where to begin, fear not! We’ve put together a list of some show-stopping Valentine’s Day-inspired makeup looks that are sure to impress...
If the classics are your thing, the red lip is a Valentine’s Day favourite. It is the perfect way to elevate any look and gives off an aura of chic sophistication even if it’s the only makeup you’re wearing. Play around with different shades of red, warmer and cooler tones, and different finishes, like glossy, shiny, or matte to find the perfect look for you.
If you love the classic red lip but are wanting to branch out and try something new, a bold and bright fuchsia lip is for you. Pair this lip with a soft smokey-eye, or even just a simple coat of mascara! This warm yet striking tone is enough to grab anyone’s attention and you’re sure to get heaps of compliments with this stunning look.
To give yourself a cute peachy look this Valentine’s Day, don’t be afraid to take a maximalist approach to your blush application. Sweep your blush across your cheeks and nose and even up onto your forehead for a sun-kissed glow. Blush doesn't tend to be the main feature of a makeup look but it’s time to change that! This look is perfect to bring out your sweet side this Valentine’s Day.
Electric Graphic Liner
If you want to rock a more girly meets punk look this February 14th, then a graphic liner is a go for you. Complete this look with a fun electric pink eyeliner or shadow stick and use a narrow-pointed q tip to clean up the lines. This fun and flirty option is the perfect way to make a statement and radiate confidence.
Another look for the lovers of the classics... soft glam. Walking the fine line between natural makeup and full glam, the soft glam look consists of beautifully blended soft shadows, no harsh lines, nude lip tones and is an elevated, sexier version of everyday makeup. A soft glam look has such an effortless looking but very put-together vibe, and the softness gives you a feminine energy that is perfect for your upcoming Valentine’s Day date.
For a sweet and playful candy-heart-inspired look, pastels are a beautiful colour group to work with. A baby pink shadow, blush, and pinky nude lip all tie together perfectly to create a soft girly appearance.
So whether you have a date or not, getting your makeup brushes out and trying a new look is the perfect way to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit. Think bubblegum pink and rosey red tones, fun graphic liners, and sensual glam… the best impressers this Valentine’s Day.
