We love red lipstick, don’t get us wrong, but it’s not exactly reinventing the Valentine’s Day beauty book. Instead, we gathered 14 of the most romantic and colorful makeup looks to wear come February 14. The best part? They’ll look just as great every day after too.

1 Peachy Keen

Monochromatic makeup has become somewhat of a signature for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—and for good reason. Her peach eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick combination is lovely for Valentine’s Day, whether you’re headed to a fancy dinner or out with friends.

2 Bold Berry

A deep, berry-tinged lip color is unexpected, and as Tessa Thompson proves, completely alluring. And remember, you can always blot it off before the end of the night, should the need arise.

3 Pretty in Pink

Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney’s pink matchy-matchy makeup screams romance. Take a cue from her makeup artist Melissa Hernandez and add a touch of brown lip liner to keep the look from being too cutesy.

4 Pop of Pink

Laura Harrier and makeup artist Nina Park proved that a hot-pink lipstick is nothing to fear. Pair it with an all-pink ensemble, or your favorite LBD.

5 Lash Out

Retro-inspired clumpy lashes and a scattering or silver glitter looks equal parts flirty and fun on Lucy Boynton. Pro tip: once you apply your false lashes, use the same glue to adhere the loose glitter.

6 Ruby Red

We love how Constance Wu and Patrick Ta paired a ruby sequin dress and ruby earrings with a lipstick to match. A metallic pink eyeshadow and slick black lashes kept the shiny textures cohesive.

7 Pink Gloss

Yara Shahidi‘s SAG Awards beauty look was all about being soft, pink, and glossy. After all, nothing says romance like a flushed cheek.

8 Purple Haze

Consider this the new smoky eye: amethyst eyeshadow blended softly above the crease. Layer on coats of mascara and keep your lips clear and moisturized (in other words, kissable).

Tracee Ellis Ross can pull of any look, any color, and any style—and she inspires us to step out of our beauty comfort zone. We love how she paired yellow polish, violet shadow, and fuchsia lipstick to create a bold and beautiful take on date-night makeup.

10 Fuchsia Lip

Makeup artist Quinn Murphy used pink lipstick here on Gemma Chan in the way you would normally reach for red. Sometimes all it takes is a simple color swap to change up your entire look.

11 Golden Goddess

If there’s one person who can create glowier-than-glowy skin, it’s makeup artist Namvo. For Valentine’s Day, why not pair your favorite golden highlighter with glittery eyeshadow and a nude glossy lip?

12 Ultra-Gloss

Pair fresh skin and subdued makeup with lip gloss so shiny that your hair will have to be pulled back.

13 Pink and Red

The two signature colors of V-Day aren’t often paired together in the beauty world, but Rowan Blanchard wears pink and red like a pro. We love the soft metallic pink shadow paired with a classic and creamy red lipstick.

14 Bronzed Up

Bright colors not you thing? Keep it simple with a smoked-out bronze eyeshadow, bronzer, and a warm peach lipstick.
