3 Easy Beauty Looks for Valentine’s Day
On a daily basis, my makeup routine is pretty simple – I pretty much stick to the basics – so for date nights or nights out, it’s fun to play around a little and try something new. I thought I’d share three super easy looks for Valentine’s Day. Trust me, if I can do these, then you can too!
Each look starts with a base of bareMinerals bareSkin all over, bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer under my eyes and on my cheeks to cover my rosacea, and bareSkin Perfecting Veil to mattify and set the foundation and concealer.
For the first look, I used a light pink and peachy palette to create a feminine, glowy look that has a subtle sultriness to it.
+ Dust Debutante (top row, 3rd from right) from the bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 Palette in The Posh Neutrals all over eyelid.
+ Line corner of eyelids with Clinique Quickliner in Black and smudge a little with spongey end.
+ Use bareMinerals The Royal Court Face Color Trio for bronzer, highlighter, and blush – blend bronzer into the hollow of your cheeks, dust highlighter onto the tops of cheekbones, and apply blush onto the apples of cheeks and in a C shape up around to your temples.
+ Finish with Clinique Melon Pop on lips.
I don’t usually do sleek looks, but I wanted to do something really simple, clean, and classic. This look felt very chic and French to me.
+ Cover lids with an eyeshadow that’s the same color as your skin or one shade lighter for a bright-eyed look. I used Magnate (bottom row, 3rd from right) from the bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 Palette in The Power Neutrals.
+ Create a subtle cat eye by lining top lash line with Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner (it’s like a marker).
+ Dust bronzer from bareMinerals California Bronze Trio into hollow of cheeks and highlighter from the same palette onto top of cheekbones.
+ Finish with a red lip. I used Anthropologie’s Albeit lipstick in Scarlet.
I love this look because it’s fun, flirty, and playful. I know they often say pick one area to highlight but I like the boldness of the bright lip combined with the slight smoky eye.
+ Using the bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 Palette in The Posh Neutrals, cover eyelids in Sizzle (bottom row, 3rd from right) and blend Valet (top row, 2nd from right) into the outer crease of your eye.
+ Line lash line with Clinique Quickliner in Black and smudge with spongey side.
+ Apply bareMinerals READY Blush in The Natural High to apples of cheeks and up in a C motion to your temples.
+ Finish with Buxom Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Fuschia Fetish.
There is nothing more attractive than confidence so adjust any of these looks to best suit you and what makes you feel most beautiful. Now rock on with your bad, beautiful self and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
