Valentine’s Day—it’s a time for love, lots of chocolate, and finally getting the courage to rock that red lipstick you’ve been saving for a special occasion. Valentine’s Day comes only once a year, but we guarantee you’ll fall head over heels for these makeup ideas—so much so that you’ll continue wearing them long after this February 14 has passed. Whether you’re celebrating by hanging out with your best girlfriends, watching a rom-com, or meeting your significant other for dinner, you’ll certainly look your best when you try one of these five makeup looks, featuring everything from classic red lipstick to shimmering eye shadow.

Valentine’s day makeup idea #1: CLASSIC RED LIPS 

There’s no denying that Valentine’s Day is synonymous with red lipstick. For some of us, it’s the one time of the year when we bring out the big guns and rock a bold pout. Let your red lips do all the talking by keeping the rest of your makeup super-neutral. Think: Just a swipe of mascara and concealer if you need it and you’re good to go.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris True Match Color Correcting Crayons

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-ly In Love

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Neutralize the appearance of discolorations. Cover up any redness, dark circles, or blemishes with a color correcting concealer. Remember: green for redness, peach for dark circles, and yellow for purple undertones.

Step 2: Keep your eye makeup simple. Since you’re keeping the focus on your lips, opt for simple eye makeup—a coat of volumizing mascara should do the trick. 

Step 3: Paint your pout. Outline your lips with a matte red lipstick, then fill in your pout. Kiss, kiss!  

Valentine’s day makeup idea #2: DEWY skin

Valentine’s Day falls smack dab in the middle of winter—and this can lead to your skin looking a little, well, duller than usual. That’s where a dewy foundation can come in handy. Imagine how amazing luminous-looking skin will look against a candlelit background during date night?

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Lock Makeup Primer

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Prep your complexion. Before applying any foundation, massage a thin layer of primer onto your skin. This can help to create a smooth, even canvas for makeup application. 

Step 2: Next up, foundation. Apply foundation using a makeup blender. Use dabbing and rolling motions to blend the foundation onto your skin. 

Step 3: Set your look. Finish your look off with a face powder. This can help lock your look in to last throughout all the lovey-dovey moments of the night.

Valentine’s day makeup idea #3: shimmering lids

Let your eyes shine on Valentine’s Day with the help of a shimmering eye shadow.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallic Eyeshadow in Aluminum Foil

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Dewy Petal

Get the look by following these simple steps: 

Step 1: Apply allover color on your lids. Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to dust some metallic eye shadow across your lids, making sure not to extend past your crease. By keeping your color confined, you won’t risk overwhelming your lids.

Step 2: Add the finishing touch with your lips. Go for glossy pink lips by using a shiny pink lipstick. Apply the color to the center of your upper lips and work your way out to the outer edges. Then, glide it across your entire bottom lip. 

valentine’s day makeup idea #4: metallic VERY BERRY LIPS 

If you want to bring out your sultry side this Valentine’s Day, go for a metallic berry lip. Stand out from the crowd with this bold color—there’s no way you won’t catch that certain someone’s attention.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub

Lip primer

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Metallic in Smoldering Eclipse

Get the look by following these simple steps: 

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips. When wearing a dark lip color, any flakes or lines can look accentuated. So, exfoliate your lips with a scrub to slough off dead skin cells from skin’s surface first. 

Step 2: Swipe on a lip primer. This can help to ensure that your color will apply smoothly and wear evenly, so you don’t have to worry about a ton of touch-ups as you love on bae.

Step 3: Add color. Apply metallic lipstick. Start at the center of your upper lip and work your way out towards the outer corners, then fill in the rest.

valentine’s day makeup idea #5: glowing high points

If you want to shine like an angel this Valentine’s Day (and, why wouldn’t you?), the best way to get the job done is with highlighter. By applying reflective makeup in all the right places on your face, you’ll look positively lit-from-within. Gorgeous!

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Contour Blender

Get the look by following these simple steps: 

Step 1: Start with your cheekbones. After you’ve applied your face makeup, squeeze a few highlighter drops onto a makeup blender and gently dab it onto your cheekbones.

Step 2: Move on to the tip of your nose. After you’ve blended in your gorgeous glow on your cheekbones, dab some of the shimmering reflection onto the tip of your nose, which can help bring attention front and center.

Step 3: Add the finishing touches. To finish up your glowing visage, squeeze a highlighter drop onto your pinky so that you can reach into the inner corners of your eyes. Tap the remaining highlighter along your brow bone and you’ll officially look like a real-life angel.
