Just because you love Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to deck yourself out in the color it’s synonymous with. And, let’s be honest, not everyone loves pink! While the Makeup.com team is always feelin’ this cotton candy-colored shade and could eassssily put together a dozen tutorials on how to wear it on February 14th — which we’ve done before right here — we thought we’d switch it up this year. These looks go out to the girls who are anti-pink!
Pink lids? So last year. This V-Day, rock light blue eye shadow instead and bring out the ethereal side in you, without looking too much like a fairy.
If your date is about to roll up and you waited until the last minute to apply your bold cat eye, it doesn’t get any easier than the NYX Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Delight. Precision at its best, ladies.
Typically when you think Valentine’s Day makeup, you think of dewy skin and bright, rosy cheeks. Not this time. We’re going for an edgier feel with this all matte-makeup look. Contoured cheeks, a dark brown lip, smoldering eyes — the works!
You can get the perfect matte finish (without breaking the bank) thanks to theL’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. It’s oil-absorbing powers will keep your skin shine-free (allll night) so you’ll have one less thing to worry about on your hot date.
You can also go light and natural with an I-woke-up-like-this fresh face. If your V-Day is more like bottomless mimosas with your gal pals, an au naturel glow and nude lippie might feel more suitable.
