Valentine’s Day Makeup Ideas

Whether you’re single, married, or dating someone new, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to look beautiful in reds and pinks.  We complied some of our favorite Valentine’s inspired makeup ideas, perfect for a romantic dinner out, sipping drinks with girlfriends, or snuggling at the movies.

Red or pink lips are a must on Valentine’s Day.  Make sure your pout is extra poppy with Tarte’s natural LipSurgence Lip Tint (3) in Charmed light pink or Lust red.  Top off your lips with a gloss for an extra layer of shimmer.  Try Pink Tulle from Bobbi Brown to bring out your inner ballerina (8).  We literally heart Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Blush (5).  It’s hard not to feel happy and romantic when swirling your blush brush over these cute hearts.  For your eyes, pink is perfect.  We love that gorgeous eye from Temptalia (6) that you can create with the light and dark pinks in your makeup case, or try the Dance Party trio by Cover Girl (9).  If you prefer your eyes in neutral colors, punch up your look with a simple swipe of red eyeliner with the MAC Chromagraphic Pencil (7).

Once your face is all dolled up, don’t forget to include your nails!  Try a bright, fuchsia pink like Helena from the eco-friendly line Julep (4) or a sweet champagne, if you’re feeling neutral, from Megan Miller at Anthropologie (2).  For a finishing touch?  What better to top off your look than a pair of heart shaped earrings?  We love clear crystal earrings that go with everything (1)!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
