February 14th is right around the corner, and that means it is time to decide on some Valentine’s Day makeup and gift ideas! Whether you are deciding on your look for a romantic date or a night out with friends, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading for our sweet Valentine’s makeup ideas that can also be used as gifts for friends!
Soft and Sweet
For our first Valentine’s inspired makeup look, we have this soft and subtle eyeshadow using one of our On Point Eyeshadow Palettes in shade Wednesday (Neutrals). This look is perfect for a Galentine’s date with friends, or this palette would be a great gift for a friend that enjoys trying out new eyeshadow looks. To recreate this simple yet sweet eyeshadow, follow the steps below:
Step 1: With a fluffy blending brush, use shade “We Wear Pink” all over the eyelid up to the crease. Blend the color outwards so it fans out towards the tail of the eyebrow.
Step 2: Next, with either a packing eyeshadow brush or your finger, apply shade “Polo Club” all over the eyelid. Be careful not to take this color up too high because we want the pink in the crease to show.
Step 3: Last but not least, use Fully Charged Mascara Powered by Magnetic Technology by placing the mascara wand at the base of lashes and wiggle the wand back-and-forth and repeat to build.
For a blushing appearance, our Skin Perfecting Powder Blushing Act in Berry Beautiful is the perfect color to add a rosy flush to the face. We love this blushing look for an outdoor picnic or something where you don’t want to have on *toooo* much makeup but still want to have a little color. If you want to share the love of blush this Valentine’s day, we suggest giving one of our Blushing Acts to one of your besties. To give yourself this blushing moment, follow the steps below:
Step 1: To make sure our face makeup lasts all day, begin with 4-in-1 Correcting Primer Prep & Perfect and apply all over the face and rubbing the primer in with your hands.
Step 2: Next, once your skin is primed, apply our 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 to help enhance the look of your complexion. You can apply this with your hands or a chisel brush depending on your preference.
Step 3: Now, for the star of the show, apply shade Berry Beautiful in our Skin Perfecting Powder Blushing Act with a fluffy brush along the apples of the cheeks.
Give ‘Em a Kiss
To give your lips the Valentine’s Day treatment, try out our Silky Pout Creamy Lip Chubby in shade Raspberry Spritz! This sweet honey pink shade helps condition and protect your lips while giving a natural flush of pigment-rich color. This look is perfect for a romantic dinner or a brunch with friends! If you have a girlfriend that loves trying out new lip colors, this would also be a perfect gift. To learn how to recreate this all-pink look, follow the steps below:
Step One: Using a Silky Pout Creamy Lip Chubby in shade Raspberry Spritz, apply the color on the apples of the cheeks and blend with your finger for a cream blush look.
Step Two: With the same Raspberry Spritz, dab the Lip Chubby on the lips until desired opaqueness is desired for a perfectly monochrome look.
All the Drama
For a look with a dramatic flair, try adding a winged eyeliner! Our On Point Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Pen has a fine, flexible, felt-tip applicator that gently glides along the lash line to give eyes instant definition. We love adding a winged eyeliner when taking a makeup look from day to night to add a sultry look. If you have a friend who always has on winged liner, this would also be a great gift idea! To learn how to apply liquid eyeliner, follow the steps below:
Step One: Hold the eyeliner pen in the inner corner of the eye. Gently glide the pen along the lash line holding the pen still and steady.
Step Two: Once you get to the end of the eye, gently flick the eyeliner upwards and out to create a wing.
**Pro tip: Use a piece of tape and place it on the edge of your outer lash line where you want your wing to go. Draw the wing along the tape and then remove the tape. Viola! A clean winged eyeliner.
