MUA Nikki Wolff’s rosy look for songstress Sabrina Carpenter has got us all heart-eyed and gushing. The pinched cheeks and stained lips are focal points of the look, which can be achieved with the MEMEBOX I’M MEME My Custom Blush in 04 Dried Rose and MEMEBOX I’M MEME Drawing Atelier Velvet Lipstick in 10 Quiet. Sweep on the blush liberally, focusing on the apples of the cheeks for that flirty flush, and stamp on the lipstick for an effortless, kissable pout. One technique used to create a doe-eyed look is running a light coloured eyeliner on the lower lash line to open up the eyes; the Romand Han All Shade Liner in 07 Creamy Beige does the trick.
Classic with a Twist
Red lips are an instant classic but if you want to switch it up this V-Day, take a page out of Hayley Bui’s book: sporting a red lip, she opts for a muted vermillion hue that softens the look without taking away any of its impact. Get the look with the moonshot Stick Extreme Pro in 606 Moulin Rouge, a velvet matte lipstick with intense color payoff. Because the lips are the focal point of the look, the rest of the face is kept clean and simple. Create a sharp winged liner with the MERZY The First Pen Eyeliner in P1. Oreo and fill in the brows with the Etude House Drawing Eye Brow in a structured shape. Voila, you’ve got yourself a modern take on a timeless look.
BLACKPINK’s Jisoo never fails to blow people away with her voice and beauty, and while you can’t get her voice for yourself, you can recreate her stunning cover photo look. It’s spring flower-freshness personified through a flawless base, watercolor eyes, and a sheeny lip. With the Etude House Play 101 Stick Contour Duo, softly define your features and use the highlight side to bring light to the nose bridge and under the eyes. Blend a subtle pink wash over the lids with the MERZY The First Pen Eyeliner in P1. Oreo, and finish the look with a coat of the Romand Juicy Lasting Tint in 09 Litchi Coral.
Pink not your thing? ITZY’s Yeji is serving the perfect inspiration for peach toned makeup that proves to be just as enchanting. Sweep the apricot shades of the Romand Better Than Palette in 09 Peach Dahlia Garden, using the deeper brown to define the lash line. Yeji’s face is defined with light contouring; the TONYMOLY The Shocking One Clear Shading can bring out and accentuate your natural features. Top everything off with the peripera Ink Airy Velvet Tint in No.03 Cartoon Coral to complete the monochromatic look and you’re ready to head out the door to your Valentine’s Day plans.
Valentine’s Day makeup doesn’t have to be complex - just ask Hailey Bieber. To get her laid-back, cool girl look, start by adding warmth to the perimeters of the face using the peripera Ink V Shading in 02 Cacao Brown. It gives the skin a sunkissed look that shapes the face and perfects the base. Fluffy brows are a must, and the Unleashia Shaper Pomade Eyebrow Fixer is a brow pomade that holds your brows hairs in place all day without them feeling stiff. For Hailey’s radiant blush, dab on the Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint in Cherryade and fuse it into the skin.
