5 Ridiculously Pretty Makeup Tutorials for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is upon us (though if you ask your local drugstore, it’s been here for a month). And regardless of your relationship status, February 14th is the ideal excuse to deck out your face with ridiculously pretty makeup—because why the hell not?

Whether you’ve got a hot Bumble date, or you’re eating chocolate and pizza alone, some kickass eyeshadow and a bold lip can transform your evening. (Yes, even yours, staunch V-day hater.) And to prove it, we picked out six insanely pretty—and super-doable—Valentine’s Day makeup tutorials. Take notes, get inspired, grab your brushes, and drink a glass of wine on us.

THIS MAUVE, MONOCHROMATIC LOOK

Sure, Valentine’s Day is usually associated with bright pinks and fiery reds, but we’re loving this chic (and surprisingly simple) dusty-mauve combo for an understated look. Even if mauve typically washes you out, stay with us—the monochrome palette actually makes the colour pop.

THIS ROSE-GOLD SMOKY EYE WITH PINK LIPS

Infuse a classic smoky eye with a little V-Day spirit by adding a soft, rose-gold tint and a pale-pink lip. Done and done.

THIS MATTE-RED LIP WITH BRONZE SHADOW

It’s fairly impossible to go wrong with a classic, bright-red lip, as evidenced in this simple—yet still so, so gorgeous—look that pairs it with dewy skin and bronze, shimmery shadow.

THIS GORGEOUS, DAY-TO-NIGHT LOOK

Got evening plans, but also a life that doesn’t allow you to spend an hour on your makeup after work? Start your day with a neutral berry lip and a little brow definition, then transition into night with a quick swipe of gold-foil eyeshadow, a few thick coats of mascara, and a glossy red lip.

THIS ULTRA-GILDED COMBO

If you’re looking to go straight-up HAM with your makeup (without overshadowing your outfit, naturally), follow this metallic tutorial. It mixes a shimmery bronze eye with dewy skin and a highlight fit for an actual bar of gold.
