6 Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks to Try No Matter What You Have Planned

Whether you have many a plan or none at all, Valentine’s Day is still a time for the romance lovers of the world to wear their hearts on their sleeves. And whether you’re practicing self-love, friend love, romantic love, Insta love, I-see-you-babe-and-you-always-slay kind of love, every bit of it deserves to be celebrated. Yes, maybe we don’t all have a dinner to attend or a stroll in the park with our significant other, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get all dolled up to show off our softer sides in honor of February 14. So no matter what you’re doing this Valentine’s Day, here are six gorgeous makeup looks to try, plus the products to shop them out.

The Glamorous Lip

Nothing says sultry quite like a deep red lip. A little light on the eyes, some luminizer, and a bit of powder is the way to own this Old Hollywoodinspired glam.

The No-Makeup Makeup

If you’re looking for some on-trend inspiration, the no-makeup makeup look is a must. Keeping a light application, minimal products, and a dewier base is the perfect natural look for a coffee date with your bestie.

The Understated Neutrals

If you’re like me and your outfit is your focal point, having makeup that competes isn’t ideal. Instead, go with more nudes and neutrals to subtly play up your bone structure and let your ensemble take the spotlight.
