Here, Veronica Lorenz, makeup artist and creator of the innovative and much-loved BeautyBlender, gives you 5 celebrity-inspired makeup looks—and some easy tricks to recreate them—to get you primped and pretty on Valentine’s Day.

“The medium-gray graphite shadows and liner Taylor Swift uses here is perfect for day to night. It’s not too saturated or bold. What polishes off her soft and pretty look is the use of highlighter in the inner corners of her eyes. This is something you can do at home in a flash. To get it right every time, I like using Spotlight Highlighting Pencil by Revitalash.”

“This look works because of the perfect blending of warm eye shadow and blush tones with a cool lip tone. Warm and cool tones together can be tricky to pull off, so be sure your clothes and makeup support each other. Her crisp white shirt works perfectly. To get those pretty puckers, try Vincent Longo Lip in Foxina.”

“Like Taylor, Allison wears medium shadow tones with highlighter in the corner of her eyes. What I like about this look is the very focused, precise eyeliner applied just on the waterline. Unlike the smudged-out, smoky eye we see a lot, the result here is wearable at any age and any time of day. Get this look using a pencil liner like Endless Silky Eye Pen by Pixi Beauty.”

“What I appreciate most about her look is that it’s complete. She pays attention to her neck, shoulders, and décolletage. If you have some know-how, try contouring your cleavage with a bronzer that’s two shades darker than your skin. I like Girlactik’s Matte Bronzer. Otherwise, a quick and easy way to enhance your overall appearance is to apply highlighter on your shoulders and collarbone. Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder is great.”

“This fresh look works because her red lip is pretty without being too dramatic. I recommend using a berry-colored stain like Stainiac Beauty Queen by The Balm. Also, to achieve a deceptively natural look, choose a foundation with lighter coverage, a bb cream or even a tinted moisturizer.”
