Similar to the lash look with a little more red tones, this look is just as pretty with a bold wing.

This soft pink cut crease is great for beginners, because it doesn’t have to be perfect and sharp!

This cut crease look is a bit more dramatic – but with only two eyeshadow shades, it is still simple.

Tips and tricks! If your cut crease is a little shaky, add a little bit of glitter eyeliner in it to make it pop.

Baby pink!! While this look is going to work best on very fair skin tones, we are digging the bubblegum pink vibe.

Blending your eyeshadow out to make a smokey pink look is a great take on VDay looks – add shimmer to the center and you’re set!

You can achieve a negative space heart by placing a heart sticker on your eyelid before you start your makeup, then removing it afterwards to reveal your skin underneath!

You can use a sticker for the cute little heart detail if your hand isn’t super steady – or to trace before you fill it in with makeup!

This is one of my FAVORITE looks because of that glitter! VDay is a great reason to sparkle.

This bold pinky (and slightly purply!) look is gorgeous. You can use tape to help you get a straight winged eyeliner!

Monochromatic cut creases like this are bold and fun. This gorgeous look pairs multiple shades of pink eyeshadow with a neutral lip shade, and we love it!

Who knows where we can get this sparkly pink glitter eyeliner? We need it!

Red Valentine’s Day Makeup Ideas

It can be hard to find a true RED eyeshadow, because many of them look pink after you blend them out! The solution? Try some single red shadows or red blushes!

This purple look is super dramatic! The contrast with a lighter liner is super cool, because eyeliner is typically darker than the eyeshadow!

Okay we know this look has more than just purple and was originally made to be a sunset look, but it is too pretty to not add in this list!

Neutral Glam Valentine’s Day Makeup Ideas

If you really aren’t into color, or don’t own any colorful eyeshadow palettes, you can definitely opt for one of these neutral glam looks. Some brown. champange, or gold glitters and shimmers make these very pretty – while also being sophisticated and glamorous!
