Valentine’s Day Makeup Ideas
When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of pinks and reds! It can be a range of soft and subtle to bright and bold. Depending on how you choose to celebrate the day and with whom you’re celebrating with will depend on what makeup look you want to go for.
The great thing about wearing fun makeup for Valentine’s Day is that you can use the products over and over to recreate different looks throughout the year. You don’t have to splurge on something you’ll never wear again! I’m all about being intentional with how I spend my money and what products I choose to invest in. I don’t like wasting money or space.
Here are some great color combos that will help you create a feminine Valentine’s Day makeup look:
How to Get the Perfect Red Lip
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to bust out a bold red lip!! But using such a bright and bold color can be frustrating because the color can show imperfections, it can rub off onto your teeth, it can wear off with eating, talking, or drinking. I think the best way to wear a bold red lip is by using a long lasting lip color like LipSense! It will literally last ALL DAY!
Taylor Swift is well known for her bold red lip! Here’s how to get the look:
- First, make sure your lips aren’t chapped, but are moisturized.
- Start by lining your lips to give you a guide.
- Apply the bold color on the middle of your lips first, go slow and steady…
- And then connect the corners.
- Apply another layer of red to polish it off and to really lock in the color.
- Top it off with a layer of gloss so your lips shine!
LipSense won’t rub off so you can channel Taylor Swift all day!
Not sure what shade of red is best for you?? Here’s how to choose the perfect red lip:
1. Determine your skin tone. In general, here’s a quick way to determine your skin tone:
WARM SKIN TONE- THE VEINS IN YOUR WRIST LOOK GREENISH
COOL SKIN TONE- THE VEINS IN YOUR WRIST LOOK BLUE/PURPLE
NEUTRAL SKIN TONE- THE VEINS IN YOUR WRIST ARE IN BETWEEN
2. Stick to the same shade of undertone.
IF YOU HAVE A WARM SKIN TONE, THEN CHOOSE A RED LIPSTICK WITH A WARM UNDERTONE. (IT HAS MORE ORANGE OR BROWN IN IT.)
IF YOU HAVE A COOL SKIN TONE, THEN CHOOSE A RED LIPSTICK WITH A COOL UNDERTONE. (IT HAS MORE BLUE OR PINK IN IT.)
IF YOU HAVE A NEUTRAL SKIN TONE, THEN YOU CAN CHOOSE A RED LIPSTICK WITH EITHER A WARM OR COOL UNDERTONE.
3. Determine your preference.
IF YOU WANT A BOLD RED LIP, THEN CHOOSE A MATTE FINISH.
IF YOU WANT A SUBTLE RED LIP, THEN CHOOSE A GLOSS FINISH.
4. Consider a berry shade.
If you still feel like red is not for you, then consider trying a berry shade. You can still achieve a red lip look by wearing a berry shade on your lips instead.
