Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to embrace your inner goddess and indulge in a stunning beauty look. Whether you’re staying in for a cozy night or stepping out for a romantic adventure, your Valentine’s Day beauty look can be tailored to suit your plans.
For these reasons, we’ve put up these two stunning makeup looks that are ideal for scorching nights out or passionate nights in.
Staying In For Some Homely Passion
You should probably choose understated beauty over a full face of glitzy makeup if you and your significant other would rather have a quiet dinner at home than to dine in a noisy restaurant or bar.
The beauty of makeup-au-naturale is that you can wear it as much or as little as you like. If you want a little more coverage, you can apply a lightweight foundation like Max Factor’s Miracle Touch, or you can choose to forgo foundation entirely and achieve a dewy, fresh glow by using an illuminating primer and a small amount of highlighting concealer.
Just use a seductive nude eyeshadow palette like Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Eyeshadow Palette – Nudes to add subtle definition to your eyes; you can also use a stain like W7’s A Hint of Bali to enhance your lips and cheeks for a pretty but natural flush. You probably won’t want to go crazy with the rest of your makeup either. Perfect!
Going Out For Dazzling Night Love
It’s also the ideal reason to step up the glam factor if you wouldn’t dream of spending Valentine’s Day without visiting your fave eatery or hangout. If you want your makeup to look beautiful in selfies and last all night, use a smoothing primer first, then a long-lasting base such as Becca Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Foundation.
Last but not least it’s time to do the eyes and lips and you have two choices here. Valentine’s Day is all about romance but it’s time to choose whether you love the idea of classical romance or something a bit more sultry.
- If you’re a classical gal, you can’t beat a bit of retro glamor so grab your liquid liner and go for a winged eye matched with a kissable bright red lipstick.
- If you’re after something a little more sexy however, there’s nothing like a smokey eye and a berry lip to get you looking smoldering. Grab a smoky eyeshadow palette and a deep purple berry lipstick for a look so smokin’ your SO won’t be the only one who wants to kiss you on Valentine’s night.
Step By Step Guide For Your Whole Look
The most romantic evening of the year wants extra planning, whether you’re spending it at home with homemade ardor or going out on Valentine’s Day. In the next section, we’ll explore versatile makeup and hair choices, ensuring you look and feel your best regardless of your Valentine’s Day plans.
- Staying In Glam: For a relaxed evening at home, opt for a natural yet polished look. Embrace a dewy complexion with minimal foundation, add a touch of warmth with bronzer, and focus on soft, neutral eyeshadows. Finish with a hydrating lip balm for a subtle and kissable pout.
- Casual Chic Hair: Keep your hairstyle effortless yet chic. Loose waves, a messy bun, or a low ponytail can elevate your look without feeling overdone. Embrace a style that allows you to feel comfortable and at ease throughout the evening.
- Comfortable Attire: Choose an outfit that strikes the perfect balance between comfort and style. A cozy sweater paired with leggings or your favorite loungewear can create an intimate and laid-back atmosphere.
- Going Out Glam: If your plans involve a night on the town, ramp up the glamor. Opt for a flawless base, dramatic eyeshadow, and bold lips. Consider a sleek updo, voluminous curls, or a stylish blowout for your hair, ensuring your entire look exudes confidence and allure.
- Statement Accessories: Elevate your outfit with carefully chosen accessories. A statement necklace, elegant earrings, or a bold clutch can add a touch of glamor to your overall appearance, enhancing the special occasion.
- Fragrance Selection: Whether staying in or going out, choose a fragrance that complements the mood. Opt for a subtle scent for a cozy night or a more impactful fragrance if you’re hitting the town.
