Valentines Day Eye Makeup Looks

Valentine’s Day Eye Makeup Looks

Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day eye makeup look? Whether you’re among the coupled up or #SingleandLovingIt set, Valentine’s Day can still inspire your inner goddess to pull off a divine look. What’s more worthy than smokin’, sultry eyes that pop? To keep all you hopeless romantics from being romantically hopeless, we decided to round up some sizzling looks that are sure to have you making the right kind of eye contact this Valentine’s Day.

Cat-eye with wings

The classic cat-eye is never out of style. But it’s a special kind of perfection for your V-Day look. Especially when you bring that wing up a notch! Think actual wings and widen that cat-eye to extend close to the upper crease in your eye.

The perfect pop of color

Line your lower inside lid with a bold teal or bright aqua liner for a burst of color that adds just the right pop!

Creamy coffee-colored shadow

If there’s a skin tone that doesn’t look stunning in this shade, we’ve yet to see it. There’s just something about that creamy light brown shadow that packs a punch stronger than caffeine!

Not your average smoky eye

Not that there is an average smoky eye. But when you build your smoky eye with shades of gold and deep burgundy – this look goes from smoky to actually – on fire!

Think pink baby

Baby pink, fuschia, hot pink, metallic pink. Whatever pink you’re thinking – stop thinking and rock it! From eyeliner to shadow, all things pink are popping on eyes everywhere this V-Day.

Put your heart in it

Forget wearing your heart on your sleeve, wear it on your eyes! A few perfectly placed jewel-colored hearts at the outside corner of your eye shadow is the perfect nod to our most romantic holiday. Or for a more smoldering stare, draw tiny hearts in a row starting at the top inside corner of your eye with your liner pencil, gradually making the hearts smaller and fanning them out like a wing. Apply some deep pink of crimson eye shadow over the lid and boom!
