Overview:

Our fave celeb Valentine’s Day hair and makeup combos

1. Zendaya’s smokey eye & sleek hair

Valentine’s Day hair and makeup look number 1: smokey eye with sleek, straight hair

A smouldering smokey-eye is a universally flattering look, no matter the occasion. And when it’s paired with sleek, straight hair? It’s a dream combo. Recreating this Valentine’s Day hair and makeup look is actually a lot easier than you think.

For the hair

When it comes to recreating this hairstyle, you don’t need a lot. But what you do need is a really good hair straightener.  For this, we can’t go past the ghd Platinum + Deep Scarlet Styler.

In honour of Valentine’s Day, ghd have given their award-winning ghd platinum + styler a stunning, deep scarlet hue and have even paired it with a matching bag. Forget flowers and chocolate, we’d like this ghd straightener please!

For the makeup

You can create the perfect smokey eye, even if you aren’t an expert. To copy Zendaya’s dark smoky eye, you’ll want to use the elf Clay Eyeshadow Palette Smoked to Perfection. If you prefer a warmer, smokey eye, the elf Need It Nude Eyeshadow Palette is your new go-to.

2. Emma Stone’s red lips & big curls

Valentine’s Day hair and makeup look number 2: a red lip and hollywood glam hair

Valentine’s Day and bold red lips go hand-in-hand. We love pairing a red lip with soft, bouncy curls. It gives your overall Valentine’s Day hair and makeup look that old Hollywood-glam edge.

For the hair

If you (like me), struggle to get those perfect bouncy curls, the Muk Curl Stick is your new best-friend. This curling wand has 4 interchangeable barrels, so you can choose how big your curls go. Pretty good, right?

For the makeup

There are a lot of red lipsticks out there, which means you can totally play around with a shade of red that suits your skin-tone. For us, we have to opt for the Eye of Horus Lipstick in Vesta Red. It’s a highly pigmented lipstick that not only looks fabulous on everyone, but it’s also packed full of nourishing ingredients that give your lips an added plumping effect.

3. Lupita Nyong’o’s glowy skin & updo

Valentine’s Day hair and makeup look number 3: glowy skin with hair accessories

For this Valentine’s Day hair and makeup look, we can’t help but look to Lupita for inspiration - the queen of glowy skin and hair accessories.

For the hair

When it comes to this hairdo, you have so much freedom. If you haven’t got a headband, then look to beaded hair clips, like this Jolie & Deen one. 2019 was the year of hair clips, and we love this trend so much, we’re bringing it into 2020 too.

For the makeup

Get your glow on this Valentine’s Day by keeping your makeup look simple. We’re talking glowy foundation, highlighter and a pink lip.

For full coverage, look at a foundation that offers a dewy or luminous finish. We love this Youngblood Creme Powder Foundation, because it’s super buildable, looks flawless on the skin and is actually good for your skin. If you want something a little more sheer and natural, opt for a BB cream instead.

Lastly, to add some extra radiance to your look, turn to MCoBeauty’s Highlight & Glow Stick. This creamy highlighter applies like a dream and makes your skin just look so darn glowy and fresh.

4. Margot Robbie’s pink blush & braid

Valentine’s Day hair and makeup look number 4: pink eyeshadow, pink blush and a romantic braid

Last but not least, we’ve taken inspo from Margot Robbie for this Valentine’s Day hair and makeup look. Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a romantic braid and a flattering pink blush.

For the hair

Braiding your hair into a french braid is a lot easier than you think. It does take some practice, but after you’ve got it, you’ll never forget it - it’s like riding a bike.

The key here for this french braid, is keeping it loose. Start with a regular french braid and secure it with a hair tie. Then you’ll want to start gently (and slowly!) pulling out small sections of your hair to ‘fluff’ it out.

For the makeup

To feel pretty in pink this Valentine’s Day, look to the Napoleon Perdis Total Bae Blush It! Cheeky Blush. This blush is subtle and yet buildable, and will give you gorgeous rosy cheeks. To complete the look, sweep one of the light pink eye shadows from this Pixi Eye Reflection Shadow Palette to your eyelids.
