Applying pinky-brown eyeshadow above the lids

1. Sparkling eyes

Apply a pinky-brown shade of eyeshadow at the top of your eye socket above your upper eyelids, but don’t go all the way up to your eyebrow. 

Applying darker eyeshadow in the crease

Next apply a slightly darker shade of eyeshadow in the crease of your eyelid.

Using a light shimmery eyeshadow on the lids

Now, use a lighter, shimmery shade of eyeshadow from your palette on your upper eyelids and in the inner corners of your eyes.

Applying shimmery eyeshadow with fingers

If you want to intensify the shimmery eyeshadow, you can apply a bit more with your fingertip instead of a brush.

Applying bronze eyeshadow to the outer corner

Apply a bronze shade of eyeshadow to the outer half of your eyelid crease to add depth. Use the brush to blend it upwards a little bit.

Shimmery Valentine's Day eye makeup

With the same bronze shade, use an angled brush to apply the eyeshadow to the outer corners of your eyes.

Blending eyeshadow colors together

Use a large fluffy eye makeup brush to blend out the corner eyeshadow.

How to do a Valentine's Day makeup look

Apply the same bronze shadow under your lower lash line, from the outer edge to where the shimmery shadow in the corner ends.

Applying eyeshadow as soft eyeliner

Use a larger eye makeup brush with the first light shade of shadow you used and apply that to your lower lash line as well, to smudge the darker shadow a bit. 

Applying mascara to the eyelashes

2. Fluttering eyelashes

Apply your regular mascara to your eyelashes.

Applying false eyelashes

Now apply spiky false eyelashes to your eyelids. Spiky false eyelashes are not the easiest false eyelashes to put on, but they do allow all of the other beautiful work you’ve done on your eyes to show through!

3. Bold lips

If there is ever a time to go for bold lips, Valentine’s Day would be that time! On clean dry lips, apply a bold lipstick shade.

If you are not an expert at applying lipstick, you can use a lip liner first as a guide for the lipstick.
