Lovely lavender

Lavender lined eyes and glossy nude lips are a match made in heaven. Margot Robbie’s purple look is subtle but sexy. A lavender eyeshadow applied with a pencil brush under the eyes is all you need. Wet your brush before applying the eyeshadow to really make it pop.

Just wing it

A classic winged liner will always make an impact. Bella’s tousled hair and luminous skin soften the look, making it perfect for Valentine’s Day. Use a sheer, illuminating base instead of heavy foundation for the ultimate date night dewiness.

Pretty in pink

You can’t go wrong with a pink pout on Valentine’s Day. Try a pink lipstick with a shine finish like Jamie’s. To make it kiss proof, always fill in lips with a lip liner in a similar shade before applying lipstick. For lips that stay put all night, use a lip primer.

Make it mauve

A mauve lip is just as pretty as pink, with more attitude. Make like Kate and match it with a sweep of mauve blush on top of the apples of your cheeks. Keep your eye makeup light with a wash of shimmer on eyelids and a coat of mascara.

Peachy perfect

Gigi’s glowy peach look is universally flattering. It’s also incredibly simple to recreate. After finishing your base, apply a shimmering peach shadow to eyelids, add a few lashings of mascara. Always use an eyeshadow primer to help your shadow go the distance.

Shimmering sunset

Warm sunset shades are stunning against brown or hazel eyes. Choose cream or shimmer formulas like Zendaya for a glimmering, luxe look. Use fingers to smooth a cream blush in a warm rose or bronzed shade on cheeks and then across eyelids.

Glistening gold

Some nights call for a statement. A touch of gold will give your look a glamorous feel. Emily wears a tangerine lipstick with a slick of golden lip gloss on top. A gloss with flecks of gold in it will catch and reflect the light, drawing attention to your lips. What more could you want on Valentine’s Day?

Fresh fuschia

Fall head over heels for fuschia this Valentine’s Day. Miley wears it well by keeping her complexion dewy and and her lips extra glossy. Polish off the look by brushing brows upwards and into place using a translucent brow gel to complete the look.

Red hot

The perfect red lip is a date night staple. Once you find your holy grail shade, you’ll never look back. A red lip is all you need to go from bland to babe in an instant. It’s bold, sexy and unapologetic. Wear with a winged liner and lots of lashes like Rosie.
