Valentine’s Day is all about love, and there’s no better love than self-love! There are loads of different ways to give yourself love, but one of them is doing what makes you feel good.
And for many people, that’s getting creative! Creative activities often relax and make you feel good.
We’ve put together some of the best Valentine’s Day makeup ideas that you can try. Get ready for lots of pinks, reds and hearts! Feel loved while creating lovable looks!
Valentine’s Day Makeup Ideas To Try
1. Doll Face Valentine Makeup Look
Spruce up your Valentine’s Day with big red hearts on the outer corner of your eyes. Easy to do, yet super effective! Match your lipstick to the color of your eye makeup for a complete look.
2. Double Eyeliner Valentine Makeup Look
Double the eyeliner for double the love with this Valentine’s makeup look. Add a precise line along your crease for a dramatic effect.
Turn it into one of love with some red hearts on top! Use the new Face Stamps from ColourPop’s new Flirty Talk Collection to get perfect hearts every time!
Notice all the details that tie this look together so beautifully. From the red beret to the heart earrings and of course, the red lips!
3. Atom-Inspired Valentine Makeup Look
Do you love science and makeup? Now’s your chance to combine the two with this original and creative atom eyeshadow look! Add some pink hearts for that Valentine’s Day touch!
4. Graphic Liner Valentine Makeup Look
This graphic liner look (or more like a work of art,) is slightly harder to recreate. You need a steady hand to get it right, but the results are well worth the effort!
Try it out with darker shades of pink for a more dramatic effect.
5. Smokey Eye Valentine Makeup Look
Can you ever go wrong with a smokey eye look? We think not! They are timeless, and classy and work with every colour combination!
This pink smokey eye is stunning and the pink shimmer just seals the deal. Of course, you can try it matte too. Check out some more pink eyeshadow looks here.
6. Heart Eyeliner Valentine Makeup Look
Look once and you may miss it! This look is subtle and perfect for those who don’t want an ‘out there’ makeup look. You can liven it up with a brighter colour and more eyeshadow, but we think she’s aced it!
If your hand isn’t steady enough to create tint hearts, you can opt for glitter hearts, all you’ll need to do is stick them on!
7. Gradient Eyes Valentine Makeup Look
One of the harder Valentine’s looks to recreate is this gradient eyeshadow look. It’s beautiful and there is a lot of detail going on! From the pink eyeliner to the heart gradient under the brow.
8. Scattered Hearts Valentine Makeup Look
It’s all in the detail and this eyeshadow look has plenty of that! Use your smallest brush to draw hearts and scatter them around your eye. Mix up the pinks for the full effect!
9. Pink Heart & Clouds Valentine Makeup Look
Looking for a full-on Valentine’s makeup look? This one isn’t for the faint-hearted! Yep, it will require more of an art session than a makeup session, but if drawing is your thing, you will love creating this look!
Match your nails to your makeup with some Valentine-inspired nails.
10. Subtle Heart Valentine Makeup Look
Use your whole eyelid to create one giant heart. A clever way to keep it from looking too heavy is to make the outline the darker colour and the actual heart a neutral almost skin shade!
11. Full Of Hearts Valentine Makeup Look
We did warn you that there would be lots of pink and hearts! This Valentine’s makeup look couldn’t be more ‘Valentinesy’! It’s got the pink, It’s got the red and it’s got the hearts!
Pair it with some coloured hair and you’ll have every head-turning!
12. Love Letter Valentine Makeup Look
Send yourself a Valentine’s letter with this eyeshadow look! This look may be a bit out of the box, but it’s fun and looks pretty! Finish off the look with matching red sunglasses!
13. Eye Heart You Valentine Makeup Look
A classier version of the previous look is this eyeshadow made up of loads of mini hearts. Style it up with some glitter and pink eyeshadow!
14. Chains & Hearts Valentine Makeup Look
Do you like grungier makeup but want to get some Valentine’s in? This chain look with hearts is perfect for you. It’s got the pink and the hearts, but the chains balance it out perfectly!
15. Hidden Love Valentine Makeup Look
Blink and you’ll miss it. Or more like if she doesn’t blink you’ll miss it! These hidden hearts are super cute and the perfect way to get your Valentine’s eyeshadow in without it looking like too much.
The heart is subtle enough that you can wear this to a party that’s not only for Valentine’s Day!
16. Glittery Lashes Valentine Makeup Look
One of the most original and out-of-the-box ideas is this glitter stuck on the lashes! I can’t imagine it being too comfortable, but you gotta give her 10 out of 10 for originality.
One small tip- use fake lashes for this look, there’s a high chance you’ll pull out lashes when removing the glitter so let it be fake ones that you lose!
The Valentine’s makeup looks are sure to get your creative juices running! From subtle to out there, and easy to advance, there’s something for everyone!
Remember the main thing is to have fun and give yourself some self-love! Happy Valentine’s Day!
