Here’s your step-by-step easy Valentine’s Day makeup routine

One of the best parts about Valentine's Day? It's the ultimate excuse to rock a gorgeous makeup look. Whether you have a date night planned with your S.O. or you just want to hang out at home (catch us with our box of chocolates for one), we've got an easy makeup routine that's perfect for Feb. 14. Follow these simple steps for a swoon-worthy look that's sweeter than candy.

Step 1: Prep & prime

A good base is the first step to flawless makeup. Moisturize and prime your skin before piling on anything else. If you're feelin' full-coverage, apply some foundation—or leave your skin bare for an au natural look.

Step 2: Blush, bb, blush

Flushed cheeks are a must for the day of love. Add some color to your complexion by sweeping on a pink blush. A powder formula will give you a rosy glow, while a cream blush will offer a more concentrated color. No matter the product, try placing the product near your temples rather than the apples of your cheeks. Yep, the traditional blush application method has recently been busted by TikTok.

Step 3: Pretty in pink lids

No Valentine's Day makeup routine is complete without pink eyeshadow, and we're totally loving this soft look from An Knook. Start with a medium pink shadow and buff it into the crease. With your fingertip, pack a shimmery pink or white shadow onto your lid. If you want to make your eyes look more dramatic, use an angled brush to smudge a brown shadow into your upper lashline.

Step 4: Poppin' pout


Maybe you're feeling like a bold, classic red. Or you'd rather go with a soft, petal pink. No matter the hue, make your lips *totally* kissable this V-Day with a pretty pout. Line your lips and sweep on the color. We love liquid lipstick for long-lasting coverage. Going for a dewy look? Dab on some lip gloss to add a bit of shine.
