We love a good excuse to try out a new beauty look, and with Valentine’s day just around the corner, what better time to try out curly locks, a classic red lip, or a sultry smokey eye? In honour of the day of love, we compiled a plethora of romantic Valentine’s day beauty looks for you to give a whirl.
Looking to go glam on Feb. 14? Try a charcoal lined eye and slicked back tresses. Or maybe you want more of a boho vibe like say long wavy locks and a berry coloured lip stain. Casual more your style? Try an off-duty model look and sport a statement lip with messy tresses.
Be it a hot date, a GNO, or an at-home rom com marathon, whatever you’ve got planned, we’ve compiled the most romantic beauty looks and the drugstore products necessary to recreate them. Click through the slideshow below for the most swoon-worthy V-day beauty looks.
It doesn't get more romantic than natural swept back tresses paired with a berry lip stain, like this Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmer ($9) in the colour 'Plum.'
Who said Valentine's day beauty has to be all shades of pink? Sport an edgier look this Feb. 14 and heavily line your eyes with Maybelline's Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ($12) in 'Asphalt.'
Have a hot date this Feb. 14? Put a twist on the classic red lip and try a darker hue like CoverGirl's Colourlicious Lipstick ($17) in 'Tempt Berry,' a beautiful burgundy shade.
Add an unexpected twist to your Valentine's day look, and rock slicked back tresses with a sultry purple lipstick shade like NYX's Matte Lipstick ($13) in Dark Era.
It's okay to have a heavy hand with the blush on V-day. Dab on L'Oréal Paris's True Match Super-Blendable Blush ($25) which comes in nine versatile shades, and to finish off the look swipe L'Oréal Paris Exclusive Reds Collection ($21) in 'Red' on your lips.
Amp up your every day makeup look with a metallic shadow like Maybelline's Colour Tattoo Gel Shadow ($11) in 'Barely Branded,' a gorgeous gold shade that will draw attention to your beautiful eyes.
Not really into celebrating V-day? Try out this low-key beauty look and simply throw on a pink lip stain courtesy of Revlon's ColourBurst Balm ($17) in the colour 'Showy.'
Add some drama to your date-night beauty look. Create a bold cat eye with e.l.f.'s Intense Ink Eyeliner ($3), an easy to use liquid liner that will last all night.
As far as V-day is concerned, the more pink the better. To get this blushing beauty look, use Nars's Laguna Orgasm Duo ($61) as it comes in a variety of shades and each palette has two different shades perfect for an everyday blush or, in this case, a blush eyeshadow duo.
Nothing elevates a statement lip quite like some hair accessories. Swipe on a scarlet lip colour like Burt's Bees Lipstick ($20) in the color 'Crimson Coast,' and decorate your tresses for a romantic yet boho vibe.
It doesn't get more classic than winged lids and frosty pink lips. Recreate this understated yet elegant makeup look with L'Oréal Paris's Colour Riche Lip Colour ($21) in the shade 'Mauved,' a shimmery pink colour that has just the right amount of sparkle.
