Flirty Pink Valentine’s Day Makeup Tutorial

By Dana Fox

I wanted to create a dramatic and flirty makeup look for Valentine’s Day, and this is what I came up with! I don’t think there’s a better time to pull out those bright pinks and reds and put them to good use! This eyeshadow look really isn’t that hard, it just takes a bit longer than your everyday makeup. Check the pictorial and instructions below for steps, or see my video tutorial here!

For this look, I used the 88 Matte Palette, you can grab one here. I prepped and primed my eyelids with the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.

1. Apply medium purple in the crease and blend
2. Apply dark purple or burgundy on top of purple in crease
3. Blend it all together nicely
4. Grab a hot pink or red and apply on both the outer and inner lid
5. Apply a dark brown to the outer crease to darken and blend
6. Apply a light pink to the center of the lid

7. Highlight your brow bone with a shimmery nude or light pink shade
8. Underneath your eye, apply a gold. For more intensity, wet your brush first.
9. Apply black eyeliner on your lower lash line and smudge it out with the same dark brown
10. Apply liquid liner to the top, extending the line on both outer and inner corners. Also apply white eyeliner to your waterline.
11. Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes
12. Pop on some falsies to the outer half of your lid only

 

You’re done! I just love the vibrancy of this look and the gradient effect on the lids. Here’s the look put together, perfect for a Valentine’s day date:

On my lips I used Rimmel lipstick in Airy Fairy in the center, and Elizabeth Arden lipstick in Ruby on the outer parts to match the gradient effect of my eyes! The gold sequin top is from Romwe.
