Pretty in Pink: Valentine's Inspired Makeup


As cliché as it sounds, Valentine's Day calls to my mind pink everything – roses, sweetheart candies, and of course, makeup. And as much as I love my winged liner and dark lipstick, I've been on a pink kick lately, so I loved creating this fresh and flirty makeup as inspiration. Since this look is minimal and soft, it'll be easy to achieve and flattering on pretty much everyone. Plus, the fact that it's sheer means it'll wear beautifully throughout the day, so whether you're going on a hot date or just kicking it with your girlfriends on Valentine's Day, you won't have to worry about touching up. The key to this look is to brighten up the eyes by using a light, shimmery eyeshadow, fluttery lashes (or lots o' lengthening mascara), and a flesh-colored eyeliner in the bottom waterline. You can pair the eyes with any lip color, but staying within the pink theme, I recommend a baby pink or neutral pink lipstick and/or gloss.
