Love is in the air, bringing with it thoughts of pink hearts, red roses and boxes of chocolate — or not. While some revel in the idea of spending Valentine’s Day with their special someone, some would rather celebrate their life of unattached, single bliss. Whichever way you sway on the topic of this holiday, Team MDC has got you covered! So, if you’re a bigger fan of Singles Awareness Day or you’re all for the romance V-Day has to offer you and your man, we’ve got a beauty look to match your loving (or anti-loving) mood.

The Single Girl Look

Girrrrl, you’re going to party tonight! And whether it’s an anti-Valentine’s day affair or you’re just on a mission to find Mr. Right (or Mr. Tonight… shhh, we didn’t just say that) your look is going to turn some heads.

You definitely can’t go wrong with a sleek vixen, charcoal smoky eye look, and paired with perfectly lined red lipstick. And if you’re feelin’ extra fun, add a little glitter to your lids! Speaking of sleek, we know that men love your straightened strands, so whip out the flat iron and your fave heat-protectant (we love Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Flat Iron Perfector Straightening Mist) and get to stylin’.

… Depending on where the night may take you, you might want to know all about these makeup tips that will survive the elements, er, making out. You’re welcome.

The Girlfriend Look

Hey, no one is saying that because you’re in a relationship you need to tone it down a notch — we know you want to keep things spicy. But, let’s be real, you got the guy! And while you still want to look pretty for him, you don’t always have to look smokin’ hot! He loves you just the way you are. If he doesn’t, refer to the single girl look above!

So, maybe this year you’re going with more of a sweet pink look to go along with your cozy date night. Whether your Valentine’s Day will take place on the couch for movie night, or in a romantic candlelit bistro, this look will make you seem as sweet as cherry pie

Go for messy, loose waves when it comes to your tresses and tie in your natural beauty with perfectly pink cheeks that will match your pink pout (we love YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in Pink in Devotion)! Top it all off by brightening up your peepers with simple shimmery shadow or a NOT-so-boring brown smoky eye.
