Dewy & Fresh
Dolphin skin is a makeup trend that refers to a gleaming, moisturized, ‘just out of the water’ look. A look that is super-luminous, dewy, and multidimensional, combining skincare and makeup techniques. It is the perfect natural makeup trend to rock this Valentine’s Day! Why? It is super quick and easy to achieve and gives you a radiant and youthful glow that any woman would kill for. To achieve the look, try to incorporate hydrating products into your skin-care routine and use dewy makeup to get the dolphin skin effect. While this is mostly a makeup trend, what you do to your face before applying the makeup is vital in terms of setting the right tone. The secret to achieving this dewy, hyper-radiant look is to prep your natural skin. Before applying your glowing makeup elements, there are a few quick fixes you can try. Exfoliate your skin first to brighten your complexion and bring out your natural radiance. Try a five-minute nourishing and hydrating mask after exfoliating. Last but not least, prime your skin with a dry oil to deeply hydrate it without leaving it oily.
Dewy skin is best paired with glossy lips and wispy lashes
If your skin tends to get oily fast, make sure to leave some areas more matte
Soap brows is the trend that goes hand in hand with the dewy makeup look
Add a reddish lipstick for a natural yet chic look
Make sure to add blush and a glowy highlighter on top

Lined & Defined
If you want to enhance your eyes, then this look is just for you! The eyes are the window to the soul, so why not line and define them for this Valentine’s Day! Winged eyeliner never gets out of style- it is like the little black dress of makeup! The biggest eyeliner trends are the foxy eye look and the reverse cat-eye look. Fox-eye makeup tutorials demonstrate how to achieve a winged look by combining eye shadow, eyeliner, and fake eyelashes. And the reverse cat-eye look? It’s got all the oomph and intensity of a typical winged liner, but it’s inverted to draw emphasis to your bottom lash line. The result is a smoky, sensual under-eye with a sexy feline shape that wings out at the corner. Play with the eyeshadow colors and eyeliner intensity to spice up your eyes.
