Valentines Day Eye Looks from Classy to Fierce

It’s coming up to Galentine’s and Valentine’s day’s and a lot of us will be planning our perfect outfits. Why not plan your perfect eye make-up look too? From classic, simple looks, to fierce and bold looks, I got you covered!

Classic Looks

This look is so easy to do. A brown smokey eye is a classic, go-to eye look. It is delicate and classy, perfect for date night

I used the Sweet as Candy Wet n Wild palette for this look but there are other palettes that you can use as well like The Nudes from Maybelline and the Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte 2 Palette

If you want to bring this look to the next level, why not try a bold red lip? Although I wouldn’t recommend this if you are getting food as it could go everywhere! I would recommend this for a date like the cinema, anything that avoids eating!

#2 Elegantly Pink

This look is one of my go-to’s for every day. It requires only 3 shades from the Naked 3 Palette; Stranger, Limit and Nooner.

It is a nice and simple look, and very similar to the brown smokey look. This look can also be perfectly paired with a red lip.

Medium Look

#3 Bubbly Burgundy

This look can be subtle, yet fierce. You can create this look using either the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette or the Wet N Wilde Rose In the Air Palette.

This look is the perfect middle ground between the two classic looks and the bold look. Pictured below I have used most of the shades in the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette to create a smokey look.

This is a very pretty and smoldering look that you can do quite easily. However, if you want to bring it up a notch and add a bit of sparkle you can! I sometimes use a Stila Liquid Eyeshadow (Kitten Karma is perfect for this) to add a bit of pop. You could also use the glitter shades in the Mauve Obsessions palette

Bold Look

Electric Pink Look

Of Course I had to do a look from one of Queen Jeffree’s palettes. This look is not for the faint of heart. It is a very bold statement look created from a lot of the bright red colours from the Blood Sugar Palette.

Top Tips

  • Get to know your eye shape – this is crucial for knowing how far up to blend your shadow and what shape you want the shadow to follow
  • Use a small compact brush for packing on the bold pink and purple colours – you will get the best colour pay off this way
  • You want to start from light to dark. Take time building up colour in the crease until you get to the darker colours. 

Whether you are having a gals day, a mate-date or spending Valentine’s with your significant other, I hope you have a great day and rock your eye looks!
