3 Creative Valentine’s Day Makeup Ideas

Try any of these creative Valentine’s Day makeup looks and express your love for makeup as well as your special one:

1. Double wings

Let your special one fall in love with you again by creating a bold Valentine’s Day makeup look. Create the base makeup by following the regular routine - primer, liquid foundation, and concealer - and then jump straight to the eye makeup. To create a bold eye makeup for Valentine’s Day, take an eyeliner and outline the lash line. Glide the eyeliner as close to your eyelashes as possible and start from the inner corner of your eyes and slowly move the eyeliner to the outer corner.

Create a cat-eye makeup for Valentine’s Day by using small strokes at the end of your upper lash line. Next, apply the same eyeliner on the inner corner of your lower lash line. Make sure the lower and upper inner corners join to give a sharp look. Keep the middle of the lower lash line empty and then start dragging the eyeliner and extend the wing on the outer corner of the lower lash line. Since this Valentine’s makeup look focuses on adorning your eyes, you can go for nude lipstick to maintain a balance. Pair your Valentine’s Day makeup look with a pink or black dress and a beautiful clutch.

2. Reverse Cat Eyes

Show the world and your loved one your uniqueness by opting for a creative Valentine’s Day makeup look. This Valentine’s Day, experiment with your eye makeup and create a reverse cat eye. Reverse cat eye makeup is the upside-down version of the traditional winged eyeliner. To create this dramatic Valentine’s Day look, take a pencil eyeliner and apply it on your lower lash line. Drag the liner beyond the outer corner of your eyes but in an upward motion. Don’t forget to line your waterline. Next, take a flat makeup brush to smudge the eyeliner.

Finish this Valentine’s makeup look with mascara and voila! For lipstick, you can pick nude shades or any lighter colour! Go for a high bun and pair this Valentine’s makeup look with a white or silver outfit and the same-coloured earrings.

3. Orange eye makeup

Running late for your Valentine’s Day dinner date? Look drop-dead gorgeous this Valentine’s Day by creating a quick orange eye makeup. This year, choose the colour orange as Valentine’s Day eyeshadow and let your eyes do the talking.

You can minimise your effort and fire up your look just by swiping the orange eye shadow on your eyelids. You can add some drama to your cute simple Valentine’s Day makeup by applying eyeliner or skip it and apply only mascara. You can add some highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes. For your lip makeup, go for a nude shade. You can pick coral or orange outfits to match the colour of your dress with your eye makeup.

Now that you know about these alluring and creative Valentine’s Day makeup looks, you can create one and make Valentine’s evening more special. However, before starting your face makeup, you must prep your skin and try to follow the skincare ritual mentioned below:

• Prep your skin
To get the flawless base for your Valentine’s Day special romantic makeup looks, follow the steps mentioned below:

  1. Step 1: Cleanse your face
  2. Before starting the Valentine’s Day makeup look, deeply cleanse your face. Choose a gentle foaming cleanser that would exfoliate the skin, remove impurities, and give you a radiant glow after every wash. We recommend you to use the L’Oréal Paris Glycolic Bright Daily Foaming Face Cleanser.

  3. Step 2: Hydrate your skin
  4. To get a hydrated Valentine’s Day makeup look, nourish your skin with a hydrating face serum. A serum makes sure your skin absorbs all the makeup products optimally. We recommend you to apply the L’oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum that would help to get hydrated skin in no time! Those who are struggling with dark spots and dullness can notice faster results by opting for glycolic-acid infused face serum. Go for L’Oréal Paris Glycolic Bright Skin Brightening Serum that helps remove up to five years of dark spots in just a few weeks. Start using this serum few weeks before Valentine’s Day to reveal spotless, blemish-free, radiant, goddess-like skin on that special day.

  5. Step 3: Take care of your under-eye area
  6. Your eye area tends to get dry. Hence, to pull off the best eye makeup for Valentine’s Day, you must apply an eye serum to moisturise your eye area and keep your eye makeup all day long. We recommend you apply L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Eye Serum (offers intense hydration). If dark circles have settled permanently in your under-eye area, then using glycolic acid-infused eye serum would be a great help. Opt for L’Oréal Paris Glycolic Bright Eye Serum (depuffs under-eye area and helps reduce –49% of dark circles in 2 weeks).

Pro tip: Dip your face in ice water to control the natural oils and minimise pores to ensure your Valentine’s Day makeup stays longer (but try this with caution).
