If you want your Valentine’s Day look to be all about the eye, you’ve come to the right place. We got our scroll on and had a rummage through the wonderful feeds of Inspo-gram to bring you our fave eye makeup ideas for date night. From subtle to sparkly, we’ve found four gorge ways for you to beautify your blink with some of our dreamiest products.
For the bold babe
Winged liner, a cut crease AND glitter, you say? Yes… yes, we do! If you’re all about going bold for BAE, this is the look for you. The key to achieving it is nailing that dramatic cut crease (eyeshadow primer is essential here for max definition) and choosing an eyeliner with a patent finish. But you don’t need to hunt for one – we’ve linked all the goods below.
For the brow queen
Feminine with just a touch of fierce – this look is the perfect balance between striking and soft. Pairing a bold brow with beautifully blended eyeshadow is a great way to get the best of both worlds with your look. Use a brow kit to get those babies looking sculpted af, while highlighting your brow bone with a champagne-coloured cream shadow will make them pop even more. Finish off the look with a pair of fluttery lashes.
For the liner lover
If you love a bit of eyeliner, this look will be the one you’re lusting after for date night. Define the inner corner of your upper lash line with a liquid eyeliner that’s blacker than black with a super-sharp point. Then smoke out the roots of your lower lashes with a creamy kohl pencil. Pair with a neutral smoky eye and a dusting of golden highlight – and you’re onto a winner.
For the natural gal
For all of you out there who love the natural vibe and prefer subtle to striking, we’ve found your dream date-night look. Use warm neutral colours with a little shimmer to deepen your crease and highlight your lid – the left side of this Maybelline Temptations Palette is the perfect choice. Top that off with lashes, liner and well-brushed brows – and you’re good to go!
