25+ Valentine’s Day Makeup Look Ideas
1. Burgundy Lips and Winged Eyeliner
We love this look for a date night, and the burgundy lip color is perfect for Valentine’s Day. It’s such a subtle look, but it’s gorgeous.
Here’s a great tutorial on how to pull off natural eye makeup:
2. Red Hearts Eye Makeup
Do you want a cute look for Valentine’s Day that matches the theme? Here’s a cute idea. Use red eyeliner to draw tiny hearts next to your eyes and line your waterline. Match it with a gorgeous red lip color and some falsies, and you’re ready for the big day.
3. Stupid Cupid
If you’re feeling creative, this Stupid Cupid look is over the top. The props are what make this look so awesome for Valentine’s Day. The makeup is a little over-the-top, but it goes with the costume.
You’ll need to do a cut crease with shimmery light purple eyeshadow. For the crease and shadow along the sides, you’ll need dark purple, burgundy and mauve colors (here’s a great palette to use). To finish the look, apply pink blush and lipstick, and add heart rhinestones. Don’t forget the falsies, too!

4. Shimmery Eyes and Red Lips
If you’re going out on Valentine’s Day, here’s a great night-time look. It’s not too over the top, but it’s still glam and romantic enough to make a statement.
To recreate this look, start with some contouring.

5. Pink and Silver Heart
Here’s a Valentine’s Day makeup look that will impress everyone. It’s a little more complicated, but worth the time. Grab a dark pink palette and choose a few shades that complement your eyes and complexion. Use a medium shade for your lids, the darkest shade for the crease and the lightest shade for the brow area and the undereye.
Stick a heart rhinestone just below the outer curve of your eyebrow and apply your eyeshadow. Then, remove the heart to create that cut-out look you see in the Pin.
6. Heart Freckles
How adorable is this Valentine’s Day look? For this look, you’ll need a red eyeshadow palette, a gorgeous red lip color and some falsies.
Here’s a simple way to create heart freckles: apply some heart rhinestones to your cheekbones and use red eyeshadow to trace the edges. Remove the rhinestones and fill in the center with a light pink eyeshadow and voila! Use the same colors that you used for your eyes to create a cohesive look.
7. Red Lips and Foxy Eyes
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to do a foxy eyeliner:
8. Electric Pink Eyes
The bright pink eyeshadow and shimmery highlights make this look so gorgeous. A matte lip color can give all the attention to your eyes and cheekbones. You can add some freckles if you don’t have them naturally, or you can leave this out and you’ll still have a beautiful V-day look.
9. Glossy Pink Lips
Pink makeup looks like this are perfect for Valentine’s Day. Do a cat eye with your liner and pick two pink shades that complement your complexion – one light and one that’s dark hot pink. Finish the look with pink lip gloss.
10. Half Cut Crease with Hearts

Use your gold shadow to create freckles or use a temporary tattoo.
12. Black Heart, Red Lips
A cute but subtle and simple look for Valentine’s Day. To recreate this look: do a winged liner, apply lashes, apply a light pink eyeshadow and finish with red lips. Use your liner to draw a little black heart under each eye, and you’re ready to face the day.
13. Red Cat Eyeliner
Here’s another super simple but pretty look for Valentine’s Day. If you’re really in a rush, it will take you less than 10 minutes to bring this look together. Just do a cat eye with red liner, apply lashes and you can also use your eyeliner to draw a little heart at the corner of each eye.
14. Heart Rhinestones
Here’s a Valentine’s Day makeup look that will turn heads. The rhinestones are really what make this look so gorgeous. The eye look is a little complicated, but you could even skip it or do your usual eye makeup if you want. Just use red or pink instead to match the V-day theme. Finish with a simple pink lip, and you have an awesome Valentine’s Day look.
15. Cat Eyes and Red Lips
16. Seeing Red
This makeup look is really bold but so pretty. The trick is to choose the right shade of red for your skin tone.
17. Queen of Hearts
A cute look for the office or a night out. It’s subtle but pretty and still perfect for this holiday. Start with a pink eyeshadow palette. Finish the look with winged eyeliner, lashes and a bold red lip color. Use your lip color to draw a small heart under each eye.
18. Red Heart Freckles
Heart freckles are a popular Valentine’s Day makeup look, and this one has bigger hearts than usual. You can use an eyeliner stamp – like this one – to quickly and easily add your heart freckles, or you can draw them yourself.
19. Hearts and Stars
This dreamy makeup look is easier than you think to pull off. Start with a full winged eyeliner and add red hearts, red stars and silver rhinestones. We recommend using an eyeliner stamp unless you’re really creative. Finish with a peachy blush and light pink lip color.
20. Pink Rose
21. Minimalistic Valentine’s Day Look
22. Heart Eyes Makeup
This look is so cute, but you’ll need a lot of patience and a little creativity to pull it off. TikToker @sourandnasty will walk you through each step and all of the products she uses. Finish with some lashes and a rich red lip color.
23. Latte Makeup
The latte trend was everywhere in 2023, and it can be the perfect look for Valentine’s Day, too. Find a shade of brown that complements your complexion. Use a light semi-transparent shade, and just wipe it across the eye. Finish with a glossy brown lip color and dramatic lashes.
24. Queen of Hearts
What a masterful display of makeup artistry. Wow! A lot is going on here. You’ll need quite a few things to get started: hydrogrip primer, luminous matte foundation, wine palette, multiple red eyeshadows, face paint, lashes and a few other goodies. It’s an expensive look, but you’ll be the talk of the night.
25. Heart Tears
If you have a red palette, cherry liner and wet liners, you can recreate this super cute look. Wet liner is your secret weapon with the beautiful, cherry/pink look around the eyes. Add a bit of glitter, and you’re halfway there with this look. You just need to add some hearts.
