Valentines Day Make Up Ideas

Valentines Day is just around the corner and because us girls want to impress the love of our lives, I thought it would be a great idea to do some Valentines Day makeup looks.

Make Up Look No. 1: 
We all love the whole sultry look, smoked eyes and rose red colored lips. What better day to do this than on valentines day. 

For Deep Red Lips try: Australis Velour Lips in NY-CEE, Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Matte Lipstick in no. 112, Wet n Wild in Cherry Bomb, MAC Lipstick in Diva, Ruby Woo and Riri Woo, MAC Viva Glam I, NYX Lipstick in Chaos and Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Rosary.

Make Up Look No. 2:
I thought this look would be great since it's summer here in Australia so going with the whole bright summer theme (and it's been featured excessively in the Spring 2014 fashion runways), Orange lips is hot right now. It's hard to pull off but if you find the right orange shade that's perfect for your skin color then you'll be wanting to rock this color all season long. Team this bright lip with minimal eye makeup (a not so dramatic winged liner and coats of mascara), a great bronzer and a rose gold/champagne tint illuminator/highlighter and you're glowing and hot like the sun.

For Orange lips try: MAC Morange, Australis Velour Lips in Rio-D, Savvy Long Lasting Matte Lipstick in Maui, Maybelline New York Vivid Colors Lipstick in Electric Orange, NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave and Chi Chi Creamy Matte Liquid Lipstick in First Class.

Make Up Look No. 3:
Peach and Nude Lips never fail. It's the safest zone. You can go anywhere with these two lip shades and they suit ANY skin color. You can team them up with a dramatic smokey eye or minimal eye makeup. 

For Peach Lips try: NYX Xreme Lip Cream in Peach Fuzz, YSL Rouge Volupte in Peach Passion and Tender Peach.

For Nude Lips try: NYX Circe, Honey,  MAC Peachstock, Fleshpot, Myth, Shy Girl and Hue.

My advice if you are thinking about going for one of the first two makeup looks, make sure you pick them in a matte format. As gorgeous as glossy lips look, it's valentines day and I'm sure your valentine doesn't want it transferred on their own lips, so you're going to want to find a lipstick/gloss/stain that's budge proof and transfer resistant.

Here are a couple of looks I tried using MAC Lipstick in Morange and Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Matte Lipstick in no. 112.

Well, there we have it for the makeup part. I hope you like these looks and I hope you give them a try. 

Whatever you have planned for valentines day remember, whether you're with your valentine, family member or friends, make sure you take the time to tell them how much you love and appreciate them. If you're a lone ranger on that day take the time to pamper and love yourself.
