For your sweet Valentine's, how about some flirty lashes and soft matte lips? Amber loves how simple and affordable this look is by using drugstore brands like Milani foundation for her flawless face and lipstick for those statement matte lips. Don't forget to find the wispiest falsies to recreate this look. This pageant beauty has been competing and doing makeup since she was 13.
Here's another sultry red lips look you can easily play up. Sophia, an army wife who posts easy-to-follow makeup tutorials, love fresh faces and defining your best features. Proud of your sensual lips? Shape and define them using your favorite red and drive him mad with your go-to gloss. Since lips are the main appeal here, pair them with softly defined brows and subtle nude eye shadows and he won't be able to resist staring at your puckers all night.
For you ladies who aren't shy and ready to go bombshell fab, here's a pink-on-pink look that's flirty and fetch. From Magda, a 23-year-old self-taught makeup artist and YouTuber, this soft look was created with pink shadows and lipsticks. Dramatic fluffy lashes and winged liners added that sex-kitten appeal that's perfect for Valentine's.
Not getting prettied up for him? Krystal has the perfectly fun look that'll have your gal pals keep on asking "How?". The young and talented makeup addict from Florida killed it with this "heartsy" look that's totally selfie-ready. The heart cut-outs are defined by dark and smokey eyes. Compliment your artsy eyes with beautifully contoured cheeks and creamy matte lips.
Another fun and fierce look that you'll love posing for pictures with is Gisel's dramatic cut-crease that's guaranteed to be a scene-stealer. This creative vlogger loves inspiring other makeup lovers. Since red is the color of the day, she played up her beautiful eyes with red and glittery wet and dry eye shadows. Don't bother blending. The fun here is define and slice.
Last but not least, Sana created this super sultry halo eye look using pink and berry tones from the Huda Beauty textured palette with a pop of rose gold glitter by Stila Cosmetics. The London-based visual artist and beauty blogger kept the rest of the makeup soft with glowing skin and pretty nude lips.
