Valentine’s Day is the most aesthetically pleasing holiday of the year to me. I love the sweet pinks, berries, reds, and endless pastel tones. The color palette not only inspires my wardrobe, but it also plays a huge role in the makeup I wear.
No matter how you’re celebrating, here are three amazing looks you’ll fall head over heels for.
Look 1: It’s All About Me
Just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of a little “me time.” I love going on excursions—trying new cafes, strolling around my favorite bookstore, taking myself to an afternoon matinee, or maybe even going on a solo shopping trip. Everything is on my own clock. When I get the chance to treat myself, I reach for comfy separates and plan a simple, glowy makeup look that’s perfect for taking selfies.
Look 2: Grab Your Galentines
One of my favorite things to do in February is spend time with the loves of my life—my friends. I am always down for a weeknight dinner to catch up with my gal pals or a trip to get our nails done. I love to feel as feminine and fierce as I can when I’m out with my besties—that’s why I choose playful pieces in pretty pastels and a beauty look that packs a punch.
Look 3: Date Night Vibes
If I’m hitting the town with my significant other, whether we’re going dancing or just heading out for dessert, I love to feel as flirty as I can. A new dress with pops of red and my loveliest accessories strike the perfect match—and glittery, romantic makeup completes the look. (If pinks and berries aren’t your scene, don’t be afraid to try these techniques with colors you favor. Remember, you can create a beautiful smokey eye with any colors you want because smokey is referring to the technique, not the colors used!)
The key to finding your confidence this Valentine’s Day is to play around with your look and explore something new, whether that be a style, makeup technique, or beauty product.
