The season of love is finally here again. Whether you have a dinner reservation booked with your significant other, a nice dinner out with friends, or plan on staying home, there’s no going wrong with doing a full-face on the day of love.
While we're still days away from the 14th, it's the best time to save ideas and start practicing your look. We have a variety of options for you to choose from below—yes, even if you aren't a fan of your typical red glam. Keep scrolling to find your perfect Valentine’s Day-inspired makeup looks!
10 Valentine's Day Makeup Ideas from Celebs and Influencers
1. Dewy Pink
2. Freckled Fun
Add a little fun to your usual V-Day look with faux freckles! Use your eyebrow pencil or pen to draw small dots all over your nose and cheeks. Don’t be afraid to put as much as you like, as you can always tap and blend to make them less dark after.
3. Red Wings
Instead of your typical winged liner, switch up and go for a red cat eye. To do this, dip an angled eyeliner brush into your eyeshadow (try a cream eyeshadow or even a red lipstick for more control and opacity) to create a sharp, graphic look. Clean up any rough edges with a concealer or micellar water and you're done!
This sultry red-and-gold combo on Gabbi Garcia is a great alternative if you’re not feeling pink for Valentine’s Day. It’s perfect for a romantic dinner! (Tip: To make sure all your hard work doesn’t smear or smudge, don’t forget to prep your lids with a good eyeshadow primer and use a smudgeproof lip color!)
5. Bronzed Up
Channeling Sarah Lahbati's bronzed glow this Valentine’s Day look will definitely make you feel your most radiant. You’ll need to apply tons of highlighter and a bronzer for this—if you have both in your makeup bag, try it out! Don't forget to highlight your decolletage and shoulders for that extra glow!
6. Pop of Color
You don’t have to stick to just pinks or reds this Valentine's Day. You can add a bright pop of color instead, just like Maja Salvador's statement blue eyeliner below. Finish the look off with a rosy lip color to stay in theme and balance out the drama on your peepers.
7. Fresh and Foxy
When in doubt, wearing your go-to makeup look is always a foolproof idea. Take some inspo from Nadine Lustre, who paired a full-glam look with foxy liner, a nude lip, and a sleek ponytail for a polished vibe.
If you want exert as little effort as possible, try creating a simple monochromatic face. For this look, all you need is a pink or reddish blush that’ll double as eyeshadow and lipstick, plus an “inner glow” highlighter to tie everything together.
9. Less Is More
This makeup on Bea Alonzo is monochromatic without being too matchy-matchy, thanks to the usage of a muted pink hue and gloss. You can recreate this look for the 14th or, TBH, any other day of the year, too.
10. Euphoria Vibe
Why not take advantage of the occasion to try a Euphoria-inspired look? Like Chie Filomeno, you can try going a little extra with the blush and bronzer, and decorating your eye look with eye beads. So cute!
