Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and on top of all the heart-shaped candy, giant stuffed animals and all that other fun, festive stuff, it’s a great excuse to experiment with your makeup. From pretty-in-pink lips to glittery eyes, we rounded up some of our favorite makeup tutorials on YouTube to help get you in the holiday spirit. Whether you’re spending the day with someone special, hanging with your best pals or have solo plans, get your makeup brushes and eyeshadow palettes ready for these stunning V-Day-inspired makeup looks.

Warm Smoky Eyes

Influencer @ambervcruz uses warm shades of mahogany and maroon to slay this soft smoky eye look. Full lashes, lots of blush and a classic nude lip make it wearable for Valentine’s Day and beyond.

Neon Pink Lips

Red lipstick is classic, but a jolt of neon pink adds an electric flair to your Valentine’s Day makeup. YouTuber @iluvsarahii pairs hers with a crisp black wing to add some edge to her ultra-girly lip color. Recreate the look with the (aptly named) Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Romantic.

Embellished Eyes

With this look, you’ll be looking at that special someone with a twinkle in your eye — literally. Influencer @tiffany.jones uses eyelash glue to place a cluster of pearls underneath her eyes for a smoky eye that sparkles. This is an easy way to get in on the embellished eye trend.

Double Wings

Graphic eyeliner is having a huge moment right now, and we love how soft and sultry it looks in burgundy. The reddish hue brings out the warm tones in brown and hazel eyes and makes blue and green eyes look even brighter. Try it yourself using the NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Liquid Eyeliner in On Red.

Five-Minute Makeup

If you don’t have much time between work and your V-Day plans, this quick and easy tutorial has you covered. For a glam wing on the go, we recommend tracing your lash line with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Waterproof in Alkaline Eyeliner Pencil and smudging the color with an eyeliner brush.

Glam Red Lip

A slick winged liner and full, flared lash are already a match made in heaven for Valentine’s Day. The cherry on top? A classic red lip, of course. If you’re still on the hunt for your perfect red, we recommend trying the L'Oréal Paris Reds of Worth Satin Lipstick With Saturated Color, which is available in six universally flattering shades.
