Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to try a more daring makeup look. This Valentine’s Day, take inspiration from January’s Haute Couture runway shows.

Makeup should reflect your personality. It is something very intimate that helps share who you are with the world. For Valentine’s Day, choosing the right makeup look is a very important task. You can opt for a classic look with nude tones that highlight the natural features of your face or something more sensual with an old Hollywood vibe—dramatic eyeliner and red lip. Or, you can go for a more girly vibe with pink tones. The possibilities are endless and can adapt to any style.

There are many styles to choose from, and while trends change every season, the most important thing when choosing a makeup look is to feel comfortable and beautiful in your skin. If you want to try something different this Valentine’s Day, here are five trends we saw on the Spring 2022 Haute Couture runways that you can give a go.

Haute Couture collections are a fantastic escape from reality, in which designers present surreal garments that are true works of art. This season, the makeup looks on the runway were inspiring and magical; they invited us to dream through makeup. And what better time to try out a beauty look like that than on Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year?

Classic With a Twist: White Eyeliner

To accompany the creations of its Haute Couture collection, the French maison Christian Dior put a twist on pin-up eye-liner by changing it from black to white. This shade will give your makeup a punch and shed more light on your eyes, making them the focal point of your entire face. This look, created by Peter Philips, is perfect for February 14—it’s a romantic touch that makes your eyes shine.

Scarlet Eyes: Red liners

For his Spring 2022 Haute Couture collection, designer Jean-Paul Gaultier collaborated with Glenn Martens to design a collection that combined the aesthetics of French rebellion and Belgian avant-garde. They gave us a beauty look, in which the eye is outlined in fiery red—very vibrant, almost neon. This is an interesting twist perfect for a Valentine’s Day date.
