Beautiful Eye Makeup Looks for Valentines Day

Beautiful Eye Makeup Looks for Valentines Day

Valentine's Day is one of those fun occasions during the year where us makeup lovers get the chance to go all-out and really have some fun with our makeup! There are plenty of directions to take; subtle and sweet, smoky and sexy or maybe a pink-infused natural glow. Whatever your style, check out these three eye makeup styles that go great with any look on Valentine's Day. They can even be used the rest of the year, too.

The Classic Smoky Eye

The smoky eye is enigmatic and sexy, and makes you look as mysterious as you’ll feel once you've applied your dark shadows and painted on some killer cat liner. The Lorac PRO Palette, designed by celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw, contains 16 fabulous shadows and is perfect for this look. The 8 shimmer and 8 matte shadows can be used to line, shade and blend your eyes into a lustrous smoky wonder.

Pretty in Pink

Pink is one of the definitive colors of the holiday. It’s best to adorn your lids with a primer before swiping on some shimmery pink eyeshadow and then blend with white up to the brow bone. To make the look really pop, put on a pair of Flutter's Mink Lashes. They're thick, beautiful and come in a variety of styles to give you the extra boost of fullness and sexiness you need to complete your look.

Natural Beauty

Natural doesn't need to equal boring. You can use a neutral palette like the NYX Love in Paris Parisian Palette to create a striking base that accentuates your eyes and makes them pop. You can truly bring this natural look to life by adding some winged liner, fake lashes and your favorite lipstick. We recommend a glossy bombshell red or shimmery pink.

When you're choosing eye makeup for Valentine's Day, keep in mind that amping up one or two features is enough. Add a pair of false lashes and put on a bright shade of lipstick and you are good to go. If you and your date are planning on spending the entire day together, start off with a simple look and then let things get kicked up a few notches for your big evening out!
