Valentine's Day seems to divide people into two teams--ones who love celebrating the day with or without bae and others who detest its very concept. Well, we asked Team POPxo which category they fall into and we got ourselves a mixed bunch.
From those who are throwing V-day parties to those who think it's just another Sunday, our team ranges from hopeless romantics to proper cynics. Well, doesn't matter which one you are cause we've got a makeup look for every kind of person.
I have never really celebrated Valentine’s Day because I'm not a fan TBH but I always make sure that my makeup is on point! Usually, I go for a super bright red or pink lipstick that you can spot from a mile away and pair it with a nice nude eye makeup look. And if I’m really feeling the need to dress up and live to the occasion, then I reach out for one of my many cheesy lip and heart accessories.

I’ve got no plans for Valentine’s Day, neither am I big on celebrating the day. If I had to pick one look though, it would be a monotone makeup look in hues of pink and coral. It’s the easiest to pull together, looks great, and makes it seem like I tried.

I recently purchased a striking emerald green liner, and when I showed it to my partner on a video call, he was obsessed. So let’s just say that it is going to be the highlight of my Valentine’s Day makeup look with a royal kajal for some added drama. I'll probably finish it off with a touch of BB cream, subtle blush, and a nude lip. Sounds fun, right?

I am not really into the idea of doing anything major on Valentine’s Day but if I have to put some effort into it, I’d probably just use a pink multipurpose lip, cheek and eye stick to add some colour to my face. Then, I'd swipe on some eyeliner and mascara and head out! If I have any evening plans, the most I’d do is tap on some shimmery pink eyeshadow and keep things super simple.

My husband and I live in different countries at the moment. For Valentine's Day, we're planning to do a date night scene online--dinner and wine. Usually, he sees me in my PJs and with no makeup on. For V-Day, I want to make it a little more special for him by dressing up and painting my face pretty. I'm thinking of a classic red lip, flushed cheeks, and tiny heart-shaped stickers at the end of my winged-liner.

I don’t have any particular plan in place for the day but I will definitely indulge in some self-love by putting on my favourite makeup while I spend the Sunday at home. This will include putting on winged eyeliner, adding a pop of red on my lips with a ruby red lipstick shade, and adding some tint to the apples of my cheeks. Voilá! Some red wine and wings are all I need to celebrate Valentine’s Day with me, myself, and I.

I’ve been single for a while now but I love Valentine’s Day! I buy a stunning outfit especially for this occasion and pick up the most expensive wine available in my budget. All that self-love just to pamper myself right. This year I'm with my fam so there’ll be no wine but pizza and dolling up? Hell yeah. I wanted to go for a smokey eye makeup look because I had recently ordered a white kajal from Dior. But guys, it got delayed. So I’m sticking to the classic red lip, messy bun, and a soft dewy makeup look. Yep, I’m my own boo and I do a pretty good job at that!

I’m hosting a little sundowner for Valentine’s Day on my terrace and because we’ve had no parties in the past year, I’m going all out with my makeup--I’m talking about glittery eyes, a bold lip and everything fun. Even though it’s just going to be five-six of us, I’m known to be the OTT diva, so I guess it works!

Don't they all look love-ly?
