Valentine’s Day Makeup Inspo💕

Valentine’s Day is one of my least favorite holidays but something about it always inspires me to create fun makeup looks. Now that I have a baby, I’m extremely limited on the time I can spend doing makeup but I still wanted to put together something for you guys in case you’re lacking inspiration. I decided to create two new looks and then add in four of my older ones that also suit the holiday. I have reviewed all but one of the palettes that I used so I will link to those reviews. I won’t be talking about everything else on my face because that would make this way too long but if you’re interested, just ask or check my Instagram. Let’s get started!

I much prefer mauve over pink or red so this look that I created with the Colourpop Making Mauves Palette is perfect for me. You can read my review for this palette here.

  1. I set my primer with R & R (matte pale pink) and applied it on my waterline.
  2. I blended Solitaire (matte mauve) above my natural crease. 
  3. I blended Tongue Tied (metallic rose) into my crease.
  4. I deepened my crease with Marquee (matte plum). I also applied it on the outermost part of my lid and smudged it on my lower lash line. 
  5. I applied A La Mode (metallic mauve) on my lid.
  6. I applied Bicoastal (metallic pink) in my inner corner and on my brow bone.

The Profusion Nude Bliss Palette was my favorite of 2020 and I think this was my favorite look that I made with it. I’m not sure if purple is really a Valentine’s color but I love it combined with the pink and burgundy. You can read my review for this palette here.

  1. I set my primer with Canvas (satin cream).
  2. I blended Bridesmaid (satin pink) above my natural crease.
  3. I blended Siesta (matte burgundy) into my crease.
  4. I applied Wifey (metallic burgundy) on my lid.
  5. I applied Ethereal (duochrome purple to red) on top of Wifey. 
  6. I applied Quartz (metallic pinky cream) in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  7. I applied Captivate (pressed pink glitter) in my inner corner on top of Quartz.
  8. I smudged Mystique (metallic blackened purple) on my lower lash line and smudged Siesta underneath it. 

This was a Valentine’s look that I created last year with the Ace Beaute Grandiose Palette. I love it so I wanted to mention it again. It’s so simple but the pink in the inner corner really makes it pop. You can read my review for this palette here.

  1. I set my primer with a cream shade from a different palette.
  2. I blended Patchouli (matte light peach) above my natural crease. This shade doesn’t show up that well on my skin tone but it’s great for creating a color gradient and blending out deeper shades.
  3. I blended Cinnamon (matte medium brown) into my crease.
  4. I applied Myrtle (metallic bronze) on the inner and outermost parts of my lid.
  5. I applied Jasmine (metallic champagne) in the center of my lid and on my brow bone.
  6. I applied Rose (satin hot pink) in my inner corner. I lightly tapped a bit of Jasmine onto Rose.
  7. I lined my lower lash line with Patchouli and smudged Cinnamon underneath it.

This is another look that I created last year with the Ace Beaute Grandiose Palette. It’s not my favorite because I’m not the biggest fan of bright pink but I wanted to share one bold look. You can read my review for this palette here.

  1. I set my primer with a cream shade from a different palette.
  2. I applied Clove (matte peachy coral) in a semi arch from the innermost part of my eye (near my inner corner) to around the middle of my brow bone.
  3. I then applied Rose (satin hot pink) underneath Clove but brought it a little further out, closer to the edge of my eye and straight down from the end of my brow. I did not blend these two shades together because I wanted the colors to stay separated. I did blend out the edges of Rose that were not touching Clove, near the edge of my eye.
  4. I blended Poppy (matte burgundy) into my crease and up into Rose.
  5. I applied Primerose (metallic copper) all over my lid.
  6. I applied Jasmine (metallic champagne) in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  7. I lined my lower lash line with Patchouli (matte light peach). I then smudged Rose, Poppy and Clove (in that order) underneath Patchouli. I blended out the shades so that they would join with the shadows up above in my crease.

I’m not a big fan of red but I love a good brick shade. This look might not be a typical Valentine’s one but if I was actually going out for the holiday, this is what I would probably wear. I created it with the Profusion Minimalist Palette. I have not reviewed this palette yet BUT I really recommend it. A review will be coming in March. 

  1. I set my primer with Slippers (matte cream).
  2. I blended Russet (matte caramel brown) above my natural crease.
  3. I blended Changes (matte brick red) into my crease.
  4. I deepened my crease with Brown Sugar (matte deep brick red). I also smudged this shade on my lower lash line. 
  5. I applied Sunstone (metallic brick red) on my lid.
  6. I applied West Coast (metallic gold) on the innermost part of my lid, in my inner corner and on my water line.
  7. I applied Flirty (gold glitter) in my inner corner on top of West Coast.
  8. I applied Twinkle (metallic champagne) on my brow bone.
  9. I lined my lower lash line with Cozy (matte taupe brown). 

I decided to create a more muted, mauvy pink look with the Profusion Minimalist Palette. These are the kind of pink shades I LOVE!

  1. I set my primer with Slippers (matte cream).
  2. I blended Medieval (matte deep mauve) into my crease.
  3. I applied Studio (metallic mauvy brown) on my lid.
  4. I applied Heart (metallic pink)  on the innermost part of my lid and on my water line. 
  5. I applied Shivers (metallic cream) in my inner corner and on my brow bone. 
  6. I applied Wonderland (pink glitter) in my inner corner.
  7. I smudged Uproar (matte deep mauve) on my lower lash line. 

Final Thoughts:

Whether you’re going out or staying in this Valentine’s Day, I hope these looks gave you some inspiration. I’m definitely not the most creative but I like to create looks that aren’t intimidating. What are your plans for this weekend? Thanks for reading and have a great day!
