5 Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Are you going with a special look for Valentine’s day this year? I tend to opt for Chanel Dragon as my go-to special occasion look, including Valentine’s Day.  I’m still undecided about this year, but here are five looks I’ve created that were inspired the holiday!

  1. Pinks & Purples
  2. Pinks & Browns
  3. Neutral Eyes & Red Lips
  4. Peach & Plum
  5. Neutral Eyes & Pink Lips

Would love for you to share your look in the comments!

oooh i love the peach/plum look (4th down)… i’m definitely gonna try that one with the MAC substitutes! a great color combo i would’ve never thought of! =)

Love these! Christine I noticed that you don’t use liner on your top lashes very often, is that to keep a more neutral/day look or just personal preference? I’ve been trying to find a lasting gel liner that doesn’t get thick and cakey after a while of use. Any suggestions?

I went for an Anti-Valentines day look of black smokey eyes with Lavender Whip on the lips. On my nails is OPI Houston We Have a Purple, which the husband says looks like deoxygenated blood. lol.

I love the Apollo 13 mission. Hell yes they have a problem! When my day is going bad I think of how I COULD be floating in space with oxygen leaking from the ship. Best of all everyone gets home safe.

i did a neutral eye and pink lip look on sat night

eyes – neutral shades from a bb palette and graphite liner and buxom lashes. nars desire lippie

i love your pink and peach look will have to try ot on the next date night 🙂

these are all great looks! i even ended up at the ‘ode to chartreuse’ post which i somehow missed in the rss feed…it’s awesome! i love how varied your looks are…and you look fantastic in all of them!

your dragon look reminded me i still have guerlain’s parure gold foundation on my wish-list…and i happen to have some points i can redeem at murale (bit like sephora) maybe the time has come…

I wore MUFE 75 (hot pink) in the out corner, stars and rockets on the middle third, and pink opal pigment on the inner third. There also black liner n my upper lid on maraca and I forget what I used to highlight but, its super pretty and I love it

Funny, I planned to wear neutral eye shadow with long black cat-eyed eyeliner, Margin on cheeks and Chanel Dragon on lips.
But since I just bought Chanel Ming, finally I wore Ming on lips, purple-plum on eyes and Cargo HD Blush/Highlighter (the pink one) on cheeks last night.

I ended up doing Peach and Plum today, with UD X all over the lid, MAC Star Violet on outer third and corner, MAC Sketch on crease just to deepen a little bit, MAC Ricepaper as highlight. I used MAC Gingerly as blush and MAC Captive + MAC Twig as lipsticks. How about that?
