Easy, So-Pretty Valentine’s Day Makeup You’ll Want to Wear Past February
Alright, so I'm all about wearing whatever you want, whenever you want, and if that means a Valentine’s Day filled with sweatpants, greasy hair, and zero-makeup, then hell, yes—more power to you (also, can I join you? These tights and fake lashes are annoying as hell). But if you’ve got yourself a hot date, or you just want to have a solo dinner feeling pretty and put-together, then I’ve got you covered with an incredibly pretty, and surprisingly easy make up ideas that you’ll want to wear pretty much every day past February 14th.
And because I can’t exactly sneak into your house and do your makeup before your big night out, I have enlisted the help of makeup artists to help us create an easy date-night look that you can do in under 10 minutes. Yes, it sounds like a tall order, but trust me when I say it’s totally do-able. Keep reading and let me know what you think in the comments below, and as well upload your ideas! Lots of Love!
Wear your heart on your... eyelids with this bold look by Jenny Cline. Ingeniously achieved by placing a little heart sticker where the thickest part of your liner would be, going over it and then removing with tweezers.
This double gloss look will make you shine on your Valentine's date. Try Nyx's Black Cherry Tart on lips, £5.50 from ASOS
HIGHLIGHTER ON LIPS
If you're caught out by a surprise date on V-Day, you can still ramp up your beauty look by hacking products you already have on you. Cult Beauty demonstrate this awesome beauty hack using highlighter as a lip shine. Rituel de Fille Rare Light Luminizer is £24 at Cult Beauty.
