Valentine’s Day Inspired Makeup Look

The perfect products for the perfect valentine's day. They will make you feel beautiful, empowered, and confident.

With Valentine’s Day just a couple of days away, I am sharing my version of a Valentine’s Day look. For me, makeup is about feeling confident and empowered, and that is what I try to showcase here. Valentine’s Day has never been a big deal for me. In Colombia, we celebrate our version of Valentine’s Day in September. It is called Love & Friendship day. I like it a lot more as we also celebrate friendship, and it is just not a day for single people to feel lonely. Let me know how you celebrate Valentine’s Day and your version of a Valentine’s Day look in the comments! These are the products I used:

Valentine’s Day Base

base products for the perfect valentine's day look, including the maybelline matte and poreless foundation, rimmel stay matte powder, and nars soft matte complete concealer.

For the base, I used products I’ve used before and I am comfortable with. The Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation is amazing. This time, I actually used my fingers to blend and loved the result. Then, my perfect concealer combo, and the Rimmel Stay Matte powder to set my under-eye. I wanted a good coverage, but to feel cakey. This base is long-wearing, and it is perfect for date-night and gals night.

Valentine’s Day Complexion

products used for a perfect valentine's day complexion including the benefit hoola contour stick, the milani baked bronzer, and colourpop cosmetics super shock highlighter in flexitarian.

The Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Contour Stick is one of my favorites. I used it very lightly and then used my Milani Baked Bronzer in Soleil to add more warmth. The blush I used is from Colourpop Cosmetics, and it is called Double Play. It comes with an amazing highlighter, but I did not use that this time. The highlighter I used is also from Colourpop and it is Flexitarian. Again, all very natural. These products go amazing together, and I would definitely recommend Flexitarian. It is a blinding highlighter.

Valentine’s Day Eyes

The products I used on my eyes for the perfect valentine's day makeup look.

For this look, I kept the eyes super simple. I only used two shades of my Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette. The shades I used are Whiskey, a rich brown matte and Combust, a soft-pink taupe. The eyeliner I used is from the Gigi x Maybelline collection.This gel eyeliner is from the East Coast Glam collection. I tightlined with it, and I then applied a little to my bottom waterline. My recent mascara combo has been the Grande Cosmetics Grande Primer that I won in an Instagram giveaway, and the Maybelline Big Shot Colossal mascara.

Valentine’s Day Lips

Using the Nudestix lipstick in Raven for the perfect Valentine's day look.

The star of this show is the lipstick. I wanted to keep a neutral eye look and make the lipstick pop. For this look, I chose the Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Raven. If you read my Fall Favorite Lipsticks, you’ll know I love these berry-toned shades. This is the only Nudestix lipstick I have tried, and I love it. I’ve only used it as a lipstick so I can’t comment on it’s “cheek” qualities.

valentine's day inspired makeup look.

I hope you have enjoyed this look! I felt extremely confident while wearing it, and it is definitely a look I’d wear again.

How do you like spending Valentine’s Day?

  • Thank @pixibeauty for the most beautiful package ♥️ The #pixibeauty #mattelastliquidlip is one of my favorite #mattelipstick formulas so you have no idea how excited I was when Pixi announced they were releasing new shades 🎉 And I was even MORE excited when this showed up at my door. I already owned the original shades so I gifted the extra ones to my friend (and #skincare queen 👑) @mod.young.
This formula is so lightweight, and not drying, and really, the only #matteliquidlipstick I use anymore. My favorite shade from this new release HAS to be #BerryBoost. The perfect shade for #fall🍁
No se imaginan la felicidad cuando llego este paquetito a mi puerta 😍 Estos labiales líquidos de @pixibeauty son mis favoritos. Vivo enamorada de los seis tonos que lanzaron primero, y ahora han lanzado cinco nuevos tonos más vibrantes y coloridos.
  • Please ignore the disgusting stage of my #glossier #cloudpaints 🙈 But these are my go-to cream blushes (pretty much all the ones I own). I find that cream blushes can give the most natural, flushed look and I love that. The #cloudpaint is the one I have been using the longest but I think the @flowerbeauty #blushbomb color drops are VERY similar (and MORE affordable). My newest addition is the #lilahbeauty divine duo - again, gorgeous shade and amazing formula.
Do you like a cream blush? Or do you prefer a powder blush?
Hablemos de rubores en crema! Me parece que en esta presentación el rubor se puede ver tan natural, así como pretendiendo que hicimos ejercicio pero llevamos tres horas en el sofá. Así. Estos son mis favoritos (todos los que tengo). Si buscan una opción económica les recomiendo el de Flower Beauty. Muy similar al de glossier.

  • Showing you the various stages of this look from the final outcome to my very, very naked face from a couple of weeks ago. This week has been a test to my #confidence. I got a stye(eyelid pimple) on my left eye and I looked like I had been punched (according to me). This meant I couldn’t wear ANY eye makeup. While I preach that #beauty is not dependent on #makeup, I still felt very insecure not being able to put on mascara or eyeliner. We get used to seeing ourselves in a certain way, and when we don’t look like what we’re used to, it’s not necessarily a bad thing - but just different. In my mind, if I can see a “flaw,” everyone else can see it too. When the reality is they’re probably not even paying attention. •
Do you also get up close and personal with your mirror and wonder if others can see that tiny little mark on your cheek?
Mostrándoles este look de hace un par de semanas desde el acabado hasta mi carita bien desnuda. Esta semana me ha salido un orzuelo en el párpado izquierdo lo que significó que no me podía poner #maquillaje en los ojos. Estando acostumbrada a verme CON maquillaje, fue muy extraño verme sin. Cuando estoy en la casa sin planes de ir a ningún lado, nunca me maquillo. Pero cuando voy a la universidad si. Y fue difícil. Porque pensaba que todo el mundo se iba a dar cuenta cuando la realidad es que probablemente ni siquiera estén prestando atención.
  • Nothing like #TextureTuesday and dipping into a brand new pot of @farmacybeauty #GreenClean. I had only tried one other balm before this one - and it hadn’t really been an enjoyable experience. I then got a mini somewhere and I am now the proud mother of this baby.
I love how well this removes my makeup. It is so effective and I find that I don’t have to use a lot of product. Usually I scoop some out and then start grabbing it with my fingers, but I always have some left over. If you’re in the market for a cleanser, I definitely recommend you give this one a chance. It won’t disappoint you!
Como les mostré en mis historias, he empezado un tarro nuevo de este bálsamo para desmaquillarse de #farmacybeauty. Es súper efectivo en remover maquillaje e impurezas de la piel. No me reseca la piel para nada. Súper recomendado!
  • Happy #MACMonday featuring my two newest addition to my humble @maccosmetics collection. I picked up two shades of their new #MACPowderKiss formula - Shocking Revelation (the more red/berry), and Burning Love (the deeper shade). I have yet to use them on my lips 👄 but I am very impressed by the formula! Have you tried these yet?
Feliz Lunes de #MACCosmetics ♥️Les presento las últimas adiciones a mi humilde colección. Dos labiales de su nueva fórmula #PowderKiss en Shocking Revelation y Burning Love. Ya los probaron?
  • Nothing like having enough time to do a full face of makeup. Honestly, my most relaxing time is picking out what I’m going to use, playing some YouTube, and doing my makeup. Even when I don’t have plans of going anywhere 🙈 there are about 13 products here. How many are there in your #fullfacemakeup routine!?
Nada como tener el tiempo para jugar con todo esto. Para mi no hay nada más relajante que escoger que voy a usar, poner YouTube, y maquillarme. Aún cuando no voy para ninguna parte 🙈 aquí hay más o menos 13 productos. Cuantos hay en su rutina?
