Valentine’s Day is around the corner and aside from all the heart-shaped candy, giant stuffed animals and all that other lovey-dovey stuff, it is a great excuse to experiment with your makeup look. From pretty-in-pink lips to glitter eyes, we put together some of our favorite YouTube makeup tutorials to help get you in the spirit. Whether you’re spending the day with someone special, some of your best pals or alone, get your makeup brushes and eyeshadow palettes ready for these stunning V-Day-inspired makeup looks. Raspberry Glitter Eye While we originally created this look with New Year’s Eve in mind, we totally think the raspberry tones are perfect for V-day. Watch as our very own Art Director, Melissa San Vincente, gives us the lowdown on this flirty, glittery look.
Moody Valentine’s Day
If the pretty-in-pink vibes that scream Valentine's Day are too much for you, opt for this in-between variation from Desi Perkins. While her sultry, pink smoky eye says “I love you” with every blink, her dark, moody lip says “I don’t need you” with every kiss. Consider it the ultimate ode to independent babes everywhere.
Classic Red Lip
Oh, you didn’t think we would skip out on a classic red lip, did you? This look is a no-brainer, especially because as we all know, red is the unofficial color of love. For the makeup novice or girl on-the-go, try recreating ILuvSarahii’s super easy Valentine’s Day look. It’s all about the dewy skin, fluffy lashes and a power red lip.
Take your faux-freckle makeup look up a notch by making hearts instead of speckled spots. While we’re not entirely convinced this is something we would wear for a dinner date night, it’s so cute and pretty we still really want to give it a try. Perhaps for a Galentine’s night in? We’ll let you decide.
MakeupShayla is living proof you can create a sultry, romantic makeup look for Valentine’s Day without using pink or red. She also proves you don’t have to spend a fortune for a flawless beat as all the products she used are $20 or less.
Hot Pink Glitter Eyeliner
If you can’t give up your winged eyeliner, you’ll be pleased to know that you don’t have to this holiday, thanks to this tutorial by Carli Bybel. We have major heart eyes for her hot pink glitter eyeliner that makes a statement yet is still super wearable. Not to mention, if you watch until the end, she'll show you how to do a braided hairstyle with waves to complement your stunning eyes.
