Valentine’s Day is one of our favorite holidays. You may think it’s a commercial holiday, and we agree. However, if you take away the expensive flowers, candy, and various other gifts, you’re left with something truly special, a celebration of the ones you love. So, whether you’re staying in, going out or something in between, try this festive Valentine’s Day makeup look to get you in the holiday spirit.
A Beautiful Valentine’s Day Makeup Look
When creating a Valentine’s Day makeup look, we love the idea of a simple bronze, smokey eye paired with a bold red lip. It’s a fun spin on your traditional dark, smokey eye and red lip pairing. Here’s how to get the look.
First, apply a Full Coverage foundation using a Blending Brush for a flawless finish.
Then, layer your favorite pressed powder on top. This will help keep your foundation in place all day and night.
Using a Fan Brush, dust your favorite blush shade on the apples of your cheeks, and use a Bronzer as the highlighter for your cheekbones.
Recreate this eye shadow look using three products, a cream base, a neutral matte eyeshadow palette for the lid, and the highlighter you used on your cheeks earlier.
First, apply the cream base to your entire eyelid as a primer. Then, use the neutral matte eyeshadow shade from on top, blending up toward your brow bone.
Use a Crease Brush to apply a darker shade (dark brown) from your eyeshadow palette to the outer corner of your eye. Then, add a the Bronzer as highlighter in the middle of your lid.
Line your top and bottom lid with a black eye pencil to complete your eye makeup.
Create a festive Valentine’s Day lip with a bold red lip. You can also tone down your lip with a nude shade for a less dramatic effect.
