Still haven’t decided what Valentine’s Day makeup to choose for 2022? Between the hustle and bustle of preparing small gifts, the mid-afternoon outing with your girlfriends or the romantic dinner to top off the day, you may not be clear on what you want to do with your makeup.
We have seen many beautiful makeup looks in the last seasons, looks that invite us to use vibrant colors and luminous skins that bring freshness and light to the final result.
Look spectacular during this celebration and incorporate romantic, fun and bold details.
If you’re looking for some inspiration to look radiant and steal the show, check out our 5 Valentine’s Day 2022 makeup ideas that you can’t miss. Let’s get started!
1. A radiant makeup starts with skincare
Your whole day has been planned, what you’ll need for each activity is ready and it’s finally time to take some time for your personal grooming. However, you sit at the vanity and even though you have the best cosmetic products, you don’t know what to do.
It’s only natural to look for Valentine’s Day makeup ideas on sites like Pinterest, Instagram or various beauty vlogger accounts. You will surely find an endless amount of ideas, looks, and recommendations, about what is “that something” that every Valentine’s Day 2022 makeup should have. However, as diverse as the possibilities turn out to be, there is one thing that all Valentine’s Day makeup looks have in common and that is, amazing skin.
How to get dreamy skin for your Valentine’s Day makeup?
Just a few years ago, makeup was intended to achieve ‘perfect’ skin, with full coverage foundations, accompanied by very marked contours. Today, the focus is instead on glowing, juicy skin with subtle contours and blushes that more closely resemble the natural skin tone.
To get a nice makeup for Valentine’s Day, the key is to include a good skin care routine. In it you should incorporate: a cleanser, a toner, a serum, sunscreen, moisturizer of your choice and lastly, a makeup primer.
The function of the primer is to diminish the appearance of imperfections and turn the skin into a perfect canvas for a perfect makeup.

2. Valentine’s Day makeup in a vibrant red color
A makeup in red shades will always make you look amazing during this celebration. Red is the color that is related to love and therefore it will be a complete hit to make it part of your cute makeup for Valentine’s Day.
However, if you emphasize some points of the face with this shade, you could achieve a sexy Valentine’s Day makeup.
This year, perfectly outlined red lipstick will be very popular. If you want to make it the star of your look, don’t forget to use a matching lip liner pencil, a red lipstick and a lip gloss to make your lips look fuller.
For a monochromatic look you can wear a red eyeshadow, in a washed out way. But if you think it’s too risky a look for you, opt for neutral shades including browns and beiges.
3. Turn your Valentine’s Day make-up pink
The color pink can not miss during the celebration of Valentine’s Day. First, because it is perfect to complement a romantic look and second, because it is part of the trendy shades for this 2022. Incorporating it in your makeup will make you look modern, fresh and perfect for a mid-afternoon date.
As with red, our recommendation for pink is to wear it on only one part of the face to avoid projecting a visually saturated image. This 2022, the vibrant colors that we usually wear on our lips are also being used in eye makeup. You can add a touch of color to your Valentine’s Day makeup by placing a pink shadow on your mobile eyelid.
For a bolder look, instead of pink you can use a magenta eyeshadow or use a matte magenta eyeshadow as a liner. It doesn’t have to be complicated!
Another option is to use pink eye shadow as a base and apply a light layer of satin shades on top. To be in tune, a rose gold or champagne shadow will be the perfect complement.
4. A Valentine’s Day make-up in peach tones
The peach tone can be interpreted as a derivation of the color orange. This shade tends to highlight the naturalness of the features, but without increasing their harshness. It gives the skin a young, bright and silky appearance, which is why it is one of the favorite shades to wear as a blush.
However, using it as eye shadow is also a total success. For an easy Valentine’s Day makeup look in peach, use an eye shadow to blend and create a subtle sweep of color across the entire eyelid. On the lower lashes try to do the same, without touching the waterline.
For a monochromatic makeup, use an orange or carmine blush in cream or stick. All the products we find in this format have a much more subtle application.
A total look in peach tones is perfect for younger girls who want to highlight their features in a natural way.
5. Graphic eyeliner for Valentine’s Day Makeup
Finally, you can incorporate certain elements that will make your Valentine’s Day look even more fun. It is becoming more and more common to incorporate elements that are not necessarily makeup, by this we mean including rhinestones, pearls, or glitter. But there are other makeup techniques that have been filling the makeup looks of the last seasons with color. One of these techniques is graphic eyeliner.
How do I wear graphic eyeliner for Valentine’s Day?
We all love the black eyeliner that simulates a ‘cat eye’. In the last few years we also saw how little by little the ‘foxy eye’ started to gain notoriety on many fashion sites, until it became popular. However, in the last few years we have witnessed how graphic eyeliners have begun to gain ground in the makeup world.
This is a technique normally used in editorial makeup, which allows you to create designs and strokes where traditional eyeliner would normally go.

To make your Valentine’s Day makeup look completely fun, why not add little hearts or dots in shades of red and pink? The possibilities are endless.
By adding graphic elements to your makeup, you can go from a natural Valentine’s Day makeup look to a gothic Valentine’s Day makeup look, or a fun and colorful Valentine’s Day makeup look. The key is in the shapes, colors or finishes you decide to use, so show your creativity and create art in each of your looks!
