Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and whether you’re single or taken, now’s the time to take your inner supermodel to the next level. The runways are as much about beauty as they are about fashion, and this season’s shows flaunted some seriously date-worthy makeup looks. If you’re looking to play up your vixen within or show off your flirty feminine side, these beauty looks straight from the runway are the perfect platform for inspiration.
For Something Subtle and Sweet:
Daphne Groeneveld at Chloe (left)
The ultimate flirty look — emulate Daphne Groeneveld’s doll face with a heavy application of black mascara on the upper and lower lashes. Apply peach blush in a “C” formation from the temples to the apples, concentrating the color just under the cheekbone for a glow that seems to come from within. Finish off with your favorite natural pink gloss in the center of the lips to create fullness.

Arizona Muse shows off her natural beauty with a rose lip, brown mascara, and her signature face-framing brows. Perfect this look with moisturized skin for a youthful glow, completed with a light blush on the apples of the cheek.
If You’re Looking to Vamp Things Up:
Isabeli Fontana at Louis Vuitton (left)
Show off your sexy side with cat eyes and strong cheekbones a la Isabeli Fontana. This sexy look is all about strong lines; prep the face with a contouring powder below the cheekbone and at the temples, as well as in the crease of the eyelid, all of which adds depth and definition. Next, fill in the brows with a pencil so they are a shade darker than your natural brow color. With a liquid eyeliner, start a thin line in the corner of the lid, thickening it as you pull toward the outer corner, finished with an upwards flick. Line the bottom lash and connect the two lines. Finish off with your favorite muted lip color.

Abbey Lee Kershaw rocks Chanel’s gunmetal smoky eye like it’s her everyday makeup! This hot look can be achieved with a blue-grey eye shadow palette or a cream color that can be blended and layered. Concentrate the color along the lash line, apply a few coats of black mascara, and finish the look with a neutral lip to compliment the bold eye.
