Whether you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day or a romantic Valentine’s Day with your partner, you want to give your makeup a quirky twist for the holiday. We’ve turned to our favourite video-sharing platform, TikTok, to find the best Valentine’s Day makeup ideas that you can recreate at home.
Grab your makeup bag. These beauty looks are ones you’ll want to start wearing right away and for the rest of spring and summer 2022.
Do you consider yourself a ‘baddie’? Are you someone who isn’t afraid to be outspoken and the centre of attention? We’ve got the Valentine’s Day makeup looks for you. TikTok user @thaisoffiicial has put together a compilation of the best and most original makeup looks for the holiday.
The collection of photos is the perfect place to start if you want out-of-the-box inspiration for something different to try this year. While each look is different, there’s a few obvious trends. Bold eyeliner is a must-have, while coloured mascara is having a moment. Don’t be afraid to experiment with pink eyeshadow and keep the focus on your eyes by incorporating hearts into your makeup look.
Have you fallen in love with the heart eyes aesthetic? It’s easy to think that you need to be an artist to recreate this look at home. Trust us. It’s a lot easier than you think. TikTok user @sourandnasty shared a tutorial on TikTok that breaks down the intricate eye makeup look into easy steps.
All you need is a pale pink eyeshadow and two shades of pink eyeliner. Start by applying the pink eyeshadow across your lids before flicking it out from your lower lash line. Take a small eyeliner brush (or paint brush_ and start to create small heart shapes across your inner corner and outer corner. Layer over these hearts with hearts of the same size in a darker fuchsia pink. You can add extra dimension by adding a third set of hearts with a white eyeliner.
Are hearts a little too far out of your comfort zone? Not everyone wants to embrace the anime character look for Valentine’s Day. Instead, why not try this makeup tutorial by @daniellemarcan. What we love about it is the fact that it takes the luminous glowy trend and gives it a romantic twist with a bold blush and lip colour.
You want to pay attention to your contouring and highlighting to sculpt your face before using a blush contour using the ‘draping’ method. Your blush should be bold and clearly visible – similar to stage makeup. Finish off your look with a thick winged cat-eye and a glossy red lip. You can add false lashes for an extra sense of drama.
Valentine’s Day is a time to get creative with your eye makeup. What we love about this makeup look by @plmakeupacademy is that it gives you a professional look without being impossible to recreate at home. While it’ll take a little time and patience, this makeup look is one that’s guaranteed to grab attention in a night club.
You can tone down this dramatic makeup look by keeping the shadow within your lids, instead of blending it out beyond the length of your eyebrows. If you’re heading out to a Valentine’s Day party, this is one makeup look that’s guaranteed to turn heads.
If you prefer a soft glam look, we’ve got you covered. This TikTok by @mizglamgirl features a stunning metallic pink eyeshadow look, complete with bold micro bladed eyebrows and impossibly long falsies. It shows that a little metallic shimmer can go a long way.
You can make this look more wearable by swapping the brows for a more natural ‘soap brow’ look and sticking to wispy lashes. Adding an extra touch of highlighter under your brow bone can help to brighten your eyes and balance out a soft glam eyeshadow look like this. Don’t forget your eyeshadow primer!
