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!

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 red lipstick to the color of your eye makeup for a complete look.

2. Double Eyeliner Valentine 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 Eyeshadow

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 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. Pink Smokey Eye

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 more pink eyeshadow looks here.

6. Heart Eyeliner

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 Makeup

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.

To get all the detail without smudging too much, try spraying your makeup brush with a setting spray before applying the eyeshadow. It’s one of the best makeup hacks out there!

8. Scattered Hearts Valentine’s 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

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 Hearts Eye Makeup

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 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 Eyeshadow

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 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

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 Eyeshadow

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

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!

My Thoughts

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!
