5 Valentine's Day makeup looks perfect for date night

Valentine's Day is nearly upon us! If you're heading out (or staying in), here's some makeup inspiration for the ultimate date night look.

Valentine's Day may, or may not feature in your favourite days of the year. For some, it's a joyful, fun experience, for others it's a complete nightmare. Maybe you're not fussed either way. We get it! The way we're looking at it is that Valentine's Day is the first time in a long time that we have an excuse to get our glad rags on and play with our makeup properly. January was a long ol' month, but now February is here and we can start having some fun!

Whether you're clinking glasses with your beloved, or out dancing all night with the girls - here's some inspiration for your makeup looks.

It's an oldie, but a goodie. You can't go wrong with a red lip, can you? Certainly not on Valentine's Day anyway!

If you like your Valentine's makeup to have an edge but still be accessible then this is a beautiful option. Shimmering chocolate eyeshadow works well with a raspberry lip, especially if it's glossy.

Perfect Peach


Soft tones of peach combined with a gentle neutral gloss on lips make this a low maintenance, but high impact look. Think natural beauty, but elevated.

Contrasting Tones

If a red lip on its own is too minimalist then why not try adding a contrasting shade for your eyes? We love this Jessica Rabbit inspired makeup by Katie Jane Hughes. So classic, but with a modern twist.
