While no one should make you feel like you have to dress or look a certain way in order to feel loved – not on Valentine’s Day, not ever really — it’s fun to play with a romantic makeup or hair look if you’re into that. Taking inspiration from celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Rihanna and BLACKPINK member Jennie, below are 20 beauty ideas that you can try out this February 14.

If you’re looking for a last-minute gift for your loved one, head here to see our Valentine’s Day 2020 gift guide. Londoners, we’ve also compiled a list of Instagrammable pink restaurants in the city that’ll make for a cute date night.

Lana Condor

How to: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Lana Condor shows us an example of a simple yet effective makeup look for a night out. The trick? Place your choice of hot pink eyeshadow around the inner corners of the eyes instead of on the lids.

Hailey Bieber

How to: Hailey Bieber’s aquamarine eyes are an unconventional take on Valentine’s Day makeup. Blend your favorite shades of metallic turquoise and gold on the eyelids to achieve this hypnotizing look.

Tiffany Young

How to: If a cat-eye feels a bit too predictable, try adding some sparkle to your eye makeup with glued-on crystals. This easy-to-achieve look on Tiffany Young is ideal for anyone who’d like to step out of their beauty comfort zone.


How to: There’s something about a side-sweep look that instantly elevates a dressy, nighttime outfit. Oozing old Hollywood glamor, Zendaya’s hair is heat-styled to create layers of curls.

Kaia Gerber

How to: If you’re ready for a change, consider getting a short bob haircut like Kaia Gerber’s. To style, brush your hair back to create volume. Complete the supermodel-esque look with some mascara and tinted brows — our favorite product to use is Glossier’s cult-loved Boy Brow.

Dua Lipa

How to: There’s no better time to wear red than on Valentine’s Day. Take cues from Dua Lipa and create a winged shape around your eyes using a fiery red hue. Top off the bold makeup look with a hint of coppery gold on the center of the eyelids and on the lower lash line.

Peggy Gou

How to: The perfect makeup for pairing with a LBD, Peggy Gou is seen here wearing a red lipstick with a cool undertone, light blush, filled-in brows and her signature eyeliner. A low bun adds to the effortlessness of this look.


How to: Channel your inner mermaid by matching your eyeshadow to your shimmery blue dress. Normani’s statement-making glam is rounded off by a dramatic winged liner, and a stylishly adorned braid accessorized with hairpins throughout.

Kim Kardashian

How to: Throw it back to the ’90s with a lip liner a few shades darker than that of your lipstick. To recreate Kim K’s Oscars after party glam, outline your eyes with a black eyeliner and intensify the look with a warm, brown eyeshadow. Finish it off with a little bit of contouring to accentuate the cheekbones.


How to: Command your partner’s attention with a chic, high ponytail à la Queen Bey. To achieve the full effect, apply the mauve-pink eyeshadow of your choice, followed by a generous coat of mascara, a nude lippie and a highlighter that lasts all night. Perfectly arched eyebrows complete the look.

Jorja Smith

How to: Slicking your hair back like Jorja Smith does here not only makes you look polished, but it also allows you to showcase the unique earrings you may be wearing. Let your natural glow do the talking and put on a peachy pink lipstick if you feel like it. Too Faced has a selection of great options.

Emily Ratajkowski

How to: For a no-fuss look like EmRata’s, tightline your eyes and go for a bronzy eyeshadow color for a sultry effect. Tie it all together with the lip gloss of your choice — here are some that instantly plump up lips upon application.


How to: If sparkles are your thing, take note from RiRi’s mesmerizing, date nigh-appropriate look. With eye makeup as the focus, the Bad Gal wears a shimmery eyeshadow and adds definition with a black eyeliner and mascara. To top it all off, she creates a kissable lip with our editor-approved Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb shade “Fu$$y.”


How to: Learn from the K-pop star on how to create an effortlessly chic evening look. Juxtapose your tousled hair with a classic, red lip color — we’ve rounded up a bunch of universally flattering red lipsticks here.

Kylie Jenner

How to: A retro matte red lip, coral cheeks, defined eyebrows and winged liner are what make up Kylie Jenner’s girly look. The main takeaway here? Add interest to your eyes by applying a slight amount of highlighter (or Kylighter in this case) on the inner corners.

Irene Kim

How to: ’90s hair clips have been a huge accessory trend over the past year, and street style royalty Irene Kim clearly can’t get enough of the accessory. See how she skillfully mix-and-matches different colors and designs. The ombré red hair is a plus, of course.

Ashley Graham

How to: If pinks and reds feel a little too predictable, try experimenting with other colors in the rainbow. This playful but not over-the-top green eyeliner Ashley Graham is sporting is a très chic example.

Lupita Nyong’o

How to: A little bit of highlighter on the nose never hurts. To complement her vibrant colored-look, the Black Panther actress opts for an equally eye-catching, orange-red lipstick shade. Hers is from Lancôme.

Lily-Rose Depp

How to: Going back to basics can also be a good idea. Take your beauty cues from Chanel muse Lily-Rose Depp, who pairs soft waves with brushed-up brows, neutral lips and sultry cat-eye.

Shay Mitchell

How to: For added drama, try your hands on a two-tone eye look, with a brighter shade applied on the eyelids and a darker hue lightly dusted below the lower lash line. Shay Mitchell completes her dazzling look here with a neutral lip color.
