What’s Valentine’s Day without pink and red? Don’t believe us, take it from Lizzo’s makeup artist, Alexx Mayo. This look worn by the incomparable songstress during her tour is soft, feminine yet sultry at the same time. 

After applying base makeup, prime your eyelids and use a hot pink eyeshadow to section off the area into half.

Next, use a compact eyeshadow brush and dab on a baby pink eyeshadow to the lower half of the eyelid and on the lower lash line as well.

Then, use the first hot pink shade and fill in the second half of the eye – you can choose to stop right below your eyebrow or make it smaller with a cat eye effect for more dimension. If you’re going big, a full volume mascara will definitely come in handy to balance out the look.

Hailey Bieber’s glazed donut makeup bears repeating because it is simply too good to pass up. It’s simple, effortless and yet stunning, not to mention how obsessed the Internet is with her go-to look. Hence, it’s time to jump on the bandwagon. 

Start with a warm brown eyeshadow over your entire upper eyelid.

For blush, grab your best peach blush and apply it from the cheek bones, blending it out close to your hairline. Add a touch on the tip of the nose if the sun kissed look is more your speed. To get that wet effect, use the same dewy or high shine highlighter to over the blush.

Ashley Park can do no wrong. Her outfits are always on point and so is the accompanying makeup. This golden look at the recent Paris Fashion Week was a sight to behold for its glimmer and its boldness – definitely suited for someone who likes being the centre of attention.

With a fluffy eyeshadow brush, cover the eyelids with a neutral eyeshadow as the base.

Next, pack on gold eyeshadow from the inner corner of the eyes and blend it out only toward the middle of the eyes. Alternatively, use a liquid eyeshadow instead for easier and more vibrant application.
