From Face to Fingertips: Makeup Inspired by Valentine’s Day

Whether it’s February 14th, or the middle of June, love for those around you and yourself is something worth celebrating everyday! But, of course, there are certain extra-special, extra lovey-dovey days where you might feel like dressing up a little more than usual.

Here are some makeup looks (and outfit ideas) to perfectly pair with our newest STYX by Luxx Valentine’s collection—for Valentine’s Day, or any day!

On Wednesdays 

Kristine Sison, the partner artist for On Wednesdays, was inspired by chic and feminine tones, fun yet—pleasing to the eyes. With touches of pink and Luxx’s signature line art, On Wednesdays is perfect for a classy and sophisticated look!

 

 

Get the look: 

Take a matte pink eyeshadow and blend it on your crease. 

Apply a rose gold eyeshadow on your lid to make it pop. 

Take a deep plum shade and blend it on your outer V and lower lash line to deepen your look. 

Apply mascara on your top and bottom lashes. 

Draw a thin line using the Luxx Liner. 

Take the Liner Lashes in Selene and stick them onto the liner. 

Use a rose blush on your cheeks for a subtle flush. 

Finish off your look with pink lip gloss.

 

Dress the part! 

What is an outfit that could match the youthful yet sophisticated look that On Wednesdays brings? Just like the On Wednesdays nail wraps, we recommend matching different shades of pink (from pastel to raspberry) with some white to balance it out. Then, add a splash of marigold with an accent piece like a bag, hat, or shoes!

Daisy Dream

Carla Co Chua, the partner artist for Daisy Dream, was inspired by flowers in bloom. Blue, muted tones adorned with white daisies allow for a minimal, understated yet classy look. From day to night, Daisy Dream is perfect to elevate any look!

 

 

Get the look:

Take a pastel lavender eyeshadow and blend it on your lids and crease. 

Take a white pencil liner and draw your floating liner above the crease. Create a wing shape by drawing a line from the end of your liner to the corner of your eye. 

Apply mascara on your top and bottom lashes. 

Snap on the Luxx Magnetic Lashes in Bonita. They’ll add a fresh and feminine touch to this dainty look!

Blend a terracotta blush on your cheeks. 

Top the look off with lipgloss. 

 

Dress the part! 

Since Daisy Dream is all about that clean, minimal, yet romantic feel, we recommend a play on pyjamas. Simply match a powder blue silk top with a pair of white culottes or slacks-- comfortable yet elevated. Then, add a touch of gold or silver “plant” themes to your jewelry or other accent pieces! 

 

Queen of Hearts

An ode to a childhood classic, get transported to Wonderland and meet the Queen of Hearts! Express your whimsical and fun side with the bold colors and illustrated elements inspired by the classic film.

 

 

 

Get the Look:

Blend a dark blue shadow on the crease of one eye and an orange shadow on the crease of the other.

Add a shimmery blue shade on the lid of the eye with the blue crease, and a shimmery champagne shade on the other lid.

Create a wing with the Luxx Liner.

Apply the Luxx Liner Lashes in Ziva for a dramatic look!

Apply a terracotta blush on the apples of your cheeks.

Finish the look with a nude lipstick. 

Dress the part! 

The Queen Of Hearts nail wraps, matched with this bold eye look could already be a full look in itself! Thus, we recommend matching these statement eyes and nails with something as simple as a dress, jumpsuit, or top that is one color from the Queen of Hearts color palette. If you’d like to go the extra mile, add accent pieces like a headband or playing card suit earrings!
