GLAMOUR Tries: We created a cute but wearable Euphoria-inspired makeup look for Valentine’s Day

There’s no better pastime than testing out the coolest new skincare/makeup/hair trends and snazzy innovations in beauty tech from the comfort of your own home. That said, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending upwards of £100 on a new at-home facial system or snazzy pair of hair straighteners, only to find out they don’t *actually* work.

Enter GLAMOUR Tries: the weekly Instagram series which sees GLAMOUR editors do all of the time-consuming (and expensive) work for you.

Yep, we’ve been busy trying out all of the wacky and wonderful beauty crazes to take the internet (read: TikTok) by storm – from FaceGym’s Faceshot Electrical Microneedling Device (the skin tool of dreams) to Isle Of Paradise’s Pro-Glow Spray Tan Mister and Larry King Hair Care’s Flyaway With Me Kit. These are the products every influencer/Gen-Z beauty slueth/beauty editor is talking about on the internet – but that you want to be sure about before parting with your money.

Thanks to GLAMOUR Tries, you won’t need to waste your hard-earned pennies on testing these innovations yourself. We’re getting in their first, giving you the lowdown and making sure you invest in products that genuinely work. Like what you see?

On GLAMOUR Tries this week, Beauty Editor Lottie Winter created a cute but wearable Euphoria-inspired makeup look just in time for Valentine’s Day. To help her, she used some red gemstones with Eyelure’s 18-hour latex-free lash glue and Vieve’s Modern Matte lipstick in the shade Muse.

“I’ve done base makeup already, otherwise we’d be here for hours,” says Lottie, “but I’ve just gone with a tiny little eyeliner flick, some blush, and then I’m going to be adding these really cool gems that I got off of Amazon with some eyelash glue and then finish with a red lip.”

Lottie uses the eyelash glue to roughly trace a couple of heart shapes to the outer corner of one eye and then applies the red gems on top, creating a romantic eye look that’s perfect for date night or Galentine’s. She then applies Vieve’s Modern Matte lipstick in the shade Muse – a bold red hue – and gives her final thoughts.
