The most romantic night of the year deserves a special makeup. If you want to wow your partner on Valentine’s Day, then I got just the right makeup tips to help you look super sexy and sweet on your date night.
Go For The Gold
Gold is the colour of luxury and it definitely adds a bit of extra glamour to your look when you wear it as part of your makeup. The most sensual way to use gold is by adding it to your eye makeup. The golden eyes are easy to create as well. Fill your upper lash line and the lower waterline with your chosen eyeliner. Keep the line relatively defined. Then just add a golden eye shadow over the lid, extending the shade on the outer corners. You can also add a light stroke underneath the bottom lashes.
Pair Khaki Eyes With Pink Lips
You can create a steaming look by combining khaki eyes with classic pink lips. The two shades add plenty of sweetness and a touch of mystery to your makeup – perfect combination for a Valentine’s Day.
Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Earth Angel comes with a lovely olive colour, which can be blended around your eye. The palette also has a taupe shade, which you can use to highlight the centre of the lid and the inner corner of your eye. You can also line the upper lash line with a dark brown liner. Finish off the look with your favourite pink lipstick or lip stain.
Brighten It Up With Blue
You shouldn’t avoid brighter colours in your eye makeup. For Valentines Day makeup, an electric blue eyeliner would add just the right electrifying element. Line your tip lids with a black gel liner first. Then use a bright blue liner, such as the Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner XL in I-24, only on the lower lash line. Add lots of mascara and use a nude or rosy blush on the cheeks and the lips.
Shock With The Lips
Brightly coloured lips are a must-have look for date night, especially on a day like Valentine’s Day. Vibrant reds pair well with a simple eye makeup and add a bit of electricity to your glamorous look. The key to shockingly sexy lips is creating a slight smudge on the edges. Add the lip stain with your finger and run a cotton swab along the lip line to create a slightly blurred line.
Givenchy’s Le Rouge in Mandarine Boléro is a great lipstick for this purpose and the semi-matte finish helps maintain the colour all throughout the night.
Smoke It Up
If you are all about the classic looks and you’d rather focus on the eyes rather than the lips, then the smoky eyes look is your thing. You can freshen it up by using a slightly tinted liner to smudge the eyeliner at the end. The Chubby stick by Clinique is a great pick for a smudged look with a slight glow. You can either use a black stick or the grey one.
If you’ve never done a smoky eye look before, My Beauty Gym has a great post on how to best use the eyeliner to accentuate eyes and it can help you master this tricky, yet effective makeup style. Now, when you are creating a smoky eyes look, keep the lip relatively nude or opt for a darker shade. You don’t want to draw the attention away from the eyes and therefore, you don’t need a bright lip colour.
Keep It Sweet
If you’re looking for something super simple and sweet, you should opt for the classic look. This means lining the eyes in a classic style and adding just a few strokes of your favourite mascara. Blush your cheeks with a rosy cream, such as Clinique’s Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm of your choice. On the lips, you just want a pink finish – swapping the lipstick to a less obvious lip-gloss. The whole look is super easy to make and it creates a sweet and adorable look for the big night.
So, what is your favourite style from the above? Once you’ve picked your chosen look, try it once before the date night to ensure you are happy with the results. Practicing your makeup can help you move faster on the day and guarantees you don’t make silly mistakes on the big night. If you need new makeup to create the looks, sites like Allbeauty.com have huge Valentine’s Day savings to ensure you can shop for the right look without spending much.
