Even if you’re spending it at home this year, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for the ultimate glam. Here we share our favourite Valentine’s Day makeup looks.
With the most romantic day of the year fast approaching, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. For many women and men, this is the perfect opportunity to get super glammed up for your significant half or even hot date. And let’s be honest, we all love a good excuse to dress up don’t we?
Whether you’re dining out or spending it at home this year, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for the ultimate glam.
When I close my eyes and picture the perfect Valentine’s glam, I instantly picture a sultry red lip and classic winged eye. I adore a red lip. It is so classic and embodies Hollywood glam, giving me instant Marylin Monroe vibes. I think it’s safe to say that red is the colour most associated with Valentine’s Day.
As a makeup artist over the years, anytime I have suggested a red lip to some of my clients I see the look of fear on their faces. This is because not everyone is open to the idea of such a bold and daring colour. I found that this was one of the best parts of my job as a makeup artist – bringing people out of their comfort zones and introducing them to new looks and colours. Also witnessing the amount of confidence that would come over them once they realised how amazing they looked.
They say there is a shade of red for everybody and I strongly agree with this. Finding the perfect shade of red that suits your own tone is key. Whether that be a deep red or one with more of an orange undertone, there is definitely one with your name on it.
So have a play with a few different shades. Find your red and step up your makeup game a notch.
If you don’t fancy a bold lip this Valentine’s, then make that statement with a bold eye look. A classic smokey eye is also very sultry. You can never really go wrong with a smokey eye.
When wearing such statement makeup, it’s important to show it off. So, try teaming it with a super slicked hair look to show off your fabulous face and bone structure. Really embrace it and let that make up shine through.
Take lots of fabulous pictures and don’t forget to find your shade of red. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Wear it bold in honour of Valentine’s Day...
