We know that you want to look your best this Valentine’s. Well, we are here to help you out! We have compiled a few romantic and lovely Valentine’s day makeup that you may want to try.
Let’s face it. A red lip on Valentine’s is quite predictable. Red lips are always associated with romance, which is why it is to be expected that most ladies will be wearing it to complete their Valentine’s make-up. If you want to stand out and look different (and also not leave your date looking fresh out of a murder scene after a steamy make-out session),
Here a few valentine’s day makeup ideas that might do the trick:
1. Romantic Rosy Cheeks
You would not want it to seem as if you are trying too hard, right? That’s why we recommend just achieving that rosy cheeks that will make you look naturally beautiful. You can do that by applying a bit of pink blush on your cheeks for that warm, romantic and rosy glow. Do not forget to apply a dab of shimmery highlighter on your cheekbones to make it pop.
A perfect day makeup choice for its low-key look, it can be easy to go overboard when applying the blush to your cheeks. The trick is applying the blush only on the apples of the cheeks. You do not want to end up looking like a clown by putting loads of blush all over your face. Bear in mind that what you are going for is flushed cheeks look. To finish things off, do some minor contouring. Just add a touch of bronzer dabbing it on the edges of your face. Start by placing some on the side of your forehead and moving to a sideways W motion from the edge of your forehead (point a) to your cheekbone and from your cheekbones all the way to your jawline. This technique is quick and simple. Plus, it’s Kim Kardashian approved!
2. Raspberry Lips
Most Valentine’s day make up is about shades of red, so it is the perfect time for you to pull off that enviable and eye-catching raspberry lips. A bit of a variation from the usual blood red lips women usually go for. If red lips are not your thing and pink lips are too weak of a game this V Day, a lipstick in rich berry shade is just what you need! Use a lip liner first in outlining the lips before filling it in with a lipstick to achieve the perfect pouty lip. Lip liners are important. Using one helps make the lips look more shapely and makes the lipstick last longer. Just be sure to use a shade that complements your chosen raspberry shade.
3. Double Winged Eyeliner
Want to look eye-catching? If yes, then make sure that you exert extra effort in doing your eyes this Valentine’s day. The perfect eye makeup that we could think of is the double winged liner, and a few dabs of gold eyeshadow placed strategically in the inner and outer corners of the eyes.
It is one of the most sultry valentine’s day looks you should try if you have a fancy evening planned. Start by drawing a winged line on the upper corner drawn outwards to the outer corner with a winged tip. The wing should begin from the outer corner and directed to the end of your eyebrows. Draw a winged line which is parallel to the upper eyelid. Line your lower lash line close to the lashes. Valentine’s day makeup will never be complete without the seductive cat eye.
4. Pastel Eyelids
Want to look romantic and feminine this V-day? Well, ditch the dark eyeshadows and opt for pastel colors instead. You can opt for pink, blue or lavender shades. If you go this route, we highly recommend keeping the rest of the face neutral. You can watch Valentine’s day makeup tutorial for a more step by step guide.
When choosing a pastel color, be sure to select a shade that agrees with your outfit choice. You can even mix things up by choosing more than one pastel shade. For example, placed a light pastel green eyeshadow as a base, then a deeper green eyeshadow on the outer corner. Playthings up a bit by throwing in a dab of orange and pink on the inner corners of the eye. The blending is the tricky part of this particular Valentine’s day make-up hacks.
5. Orange Lip Gloss
If you want to keep your look simple yet sexy, then we recommend ditching the eye and cheek makeup. Just simply add a touch of color to your look with a swipe of orange gloss. Look simply bold and refreshing with this Valentine makeup look that promises a burst of energy and vibrancy.
6. Nude Look
Speaking of keeping it simple, nothing can be as simple as nude lips. To avoid looking like a corpse, it is recommended that you opt for nude lipsticks with peachy undertones and shy away from ones with gray undertones. For the best effect, it is also best that you dab foundation in your lips before you apply your nude lipstick. Look extra fresh and effortless in this natural romantic makeup choice, keep the rest of your simple. To get the best of this Valentine’s day makeup tips and look, remember to keep your eyebrows groomed and shapely, add a bit of a blush on both cheeks, and swipe on a few coats of mascara.
7. Smoky Eyes
V-day is the perfect time for you to bring out the sexy looks and nothing can be sexier than smoky eyes. This Valentine’s Day makeup is not always a favored choice, cos it may look too intense or goth. So, instead of going all black, we suggest to go for Smokey eye using a glittery shimmer for the inner corner of your eyes instead to give you that sultry and sensual look ideal for a date night.
These Valentine’s day makeup ideas will definitely sweep your partner off his feet once he sees you. If you are a single gal, these makeup ideas will make you and your girlfriends some of the most beautiful girls in town this V-day. Who knows, this might even help you catch a cute guy!
