4 Flirty Looks to Test-Drive This Valentines Day

A Classic, Romantic Combo

Theres no better occasion to wear a flirty cat eye and bold red lip together. YouTuber Sona Gasparian uses a touch of peachy pink shadow to give her winged liner some extra depth (Benefits Theyre Real! Push-Up Liner is one of our favorites). Follow her lead and pair it with a glossy red lip like theBalm cosmetics' Read My Lips Lip Gloss in WOW! for a tasteful nod to the holiday's color scheme thats not over the top.

A Grown-Up, Girly Look

Pinks and lavenders work well on conversation hearts, but pastel makeup is notoriously hard to pull offunless youre YouTuber Lisa Eldridge. By combining shimmery rose shadow and purple liner (we like Mally Beauty's Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eye Liner in Royal Plum), she creates a soft, feminine smoky eye. Complete the look with a sweep of blush and a shiny, berry liptry Jouer's Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Mirage for a close match.

A Shimmery, Champagne Eye

Birchbox staffer Juliette shows you how to really make your eyes pop: Start by lining the outer corners of the lower lash line with a deep mauve shadow, like the rich shade found in the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette, and highlighting the inner corners with a shimmery gold shadow. Use a black liquid liner to draw a clean cat eyeEyeko's Skinny Liquid Eyeliner will do the trickthen apply a few coats of a volumizing mascara and bat your lashes.

A Hot Pink Statement Lip

February 14 is no time to play it shy in the lipstick department. Vlogger Shirley Eniang lines her lips first in a shade thats darker than her lipstick to give it some depth (we love Smashbox's Always Sharp Lip Liners). Then, she layers a deep pink lipstick like Pre-Dame's Lipstick in Milan on top. Keep the rest of your makeup simple.
