New Year's Day has come and gone. Valentine's Day is now just around the corner and I am loving the idea of getting all dolled up for the occasion. It's a lot of fun for me to dress up and feel glamorous.

Unfortunately, as I searched YouTube for makeup looks, I realized there were few Valentine's Day tutorials from women that look like me. I have a rich, chocolate complexion, so I prefer to see how pigments look on faces with lots of melanin. I found 5 videos that will be perfect for the upcoming love holiday.

#1 Dark & Sultry Cranberry 


YouTuber: Ellarie

If you want to look girly yet sexy, this is the right makeup tutorial for you. The colors used will bring a lot of warmth to your face and the pink and purple hues will give a feminine, seductive vibe. 
Perfect for date night.

YouTuber: Gratsi

This subtle yet sexy look gives me all kinds of Valentine's Day vibes. This will be a great look for you want a sensual yet natural look. A word of caution, some of the basic products used (e.g. eye liner) are specific to Europe, so if you are living in the U.S. or other areas, just use a similar product to what is shown.

#5 Classic & Daring Red

Although this makeup tutorial is titled, "Bronzed Eye", I just love the red lip Ellarie creates. Red lips can look absolutely stunning on dark skin and this look shows how to achieve the perfect red lip.
