Whether you are spending your February 14th with the gals = ‘galentine’s day’, indulging in chocolate heaven or heading out for that romantic evening with your significant other. We’re usually told to make ourselves look our best for the person lucky enough to spend this day with us, and luckily enough ‘date makeup’ is not limited to any one particular style. You have the choice to rock whatever you like.
Unsure of where to start though? Don’t worry, that’s where we come in. Think of Red Scout as your Valentine’s Day Fairy Godmother. We’ve got you covered! Keep reading to reveal the makeup looks you’ll be falling in love with – there’s something for everyone.
1. Dark and Mysterious
If you think a smoky eye and dark lip are destined to be worn together – then why not mix things up a little this Valentine’s Day and rock this bold makeup look. You’ll be looking and feeling fierce and confident. Pro tip: If you’re going to be locking lips with your lover, opt for a long wear lipstick to avoid transfer and smudging. Your partner might be scared of going anywhere near your lipstick but assure them that they have nothing to worry about.
2. Dreaming in Green
Are you tired of the neutral eye? Then why not use a bright colour such as this vivid green on the lower lash line to make your pretty eyes pop. Coloured eye shadows add depth and dimension to one’s eyes complimenting them and making them appear larger. Green is a colour that can help you achieve a fresh look, or even one that is a bit romantic. Keep your date dreaming in green as you lock eyes.
3. Bronzed Babe
There’s nothing more eye-catching and attractive than a sun-kissed, bronzed babe. If you want to look like you’ve just stepped off a tropical island, opt for a bronzed base and face. Pro Tip: Keep the look light with a tinted moisturiser and don’t be scared of the bronzer. Don’t be too heavy handed, so start light and build up your desired bronze. Gold shimmer shades work perfectly with this look especially on the eyes, and also as a highlight.
4. Minimalist Queen
If the ‘no makeup’ makeup look is more your cup of tea, we agree that there’s no better time to wear this look than Valentine’s Day. Showcasing all of your natural beauty, this makeup trend allows you to enhance your natural features rather than disguise them. Freckles? Don’t hide them, embrace them! You’re going to look and feel great!
We hope you have locked in a makeup look for the most romantic date of the calendar year! Whatever you are doing, Red Scout wishes you a Happy Valentine’s Day!
