Ready, set, apply! Read on for ideas to do your Valentine’s Day makeup for a night out in Palatine, IL.
Classic red lips
Of all the makeup trends throughout the years, the classic red lips win the trophy every time. Red lipstick screams sexy and romantic. This classic and simple style will have you turning heads all day long, but no head will turn harder than your Valentine’s. The key to achieving a classic red lip is to keep the rest of your makeup simple. Apply foundation and powder, then just a little mascara, eyeliner and blush. Also, make sure to wear a shade of red that suits you.
Consider bringing out the sultry eyes for an evening Valentine’s Day dinner date. This makeup look is better known as a smoky eye, which is actually way easier to accomplish yourself than you may think. This sexy, shadowy eye makeup look works on a variety of skin tones and pairs well with a number of dress and clothing styles and colors. Basically, the smoky eye is dark colored and subtle, yet bold and ready to make your face dazzle this Valentine’s Day.
Another easy Valentine’s Day look is winged eyes. To get this look, you’ll need a soft shade of eyeshadow, a light color shimmer and an eyeliner pencil or pen. You might take a look at pictures of celebrities like Lana Del Rey for inspiration.
Pink and subtle
The phrase “pretty in pink” holds true in most all aspects of fashion, including makeup looks. Pink makeup is pretty and subtle—really all you need is a soft powdery pink to brush over your eyelid and down to the corner of the eyes. Add a little shimmery white for an extra dash of freshness, a dab of pink blush over the cheeks and a clear lip gloss to complete a simple, yet elegant look.
Peach-colored makeup is one of the most universal looks a woman can attempt. Peach contains a mixture of orange, pink, yellow and red, making it a good choice for almost every skin tone. This fresh, simple-to-achieve makeup look is just what the boyfriend wants to order on Valentine’s Day spent with you.
