Valentine's Day is a so-called holiday that tends to divide the population. On one hand, you have your lovebirds raring to make it the most special day ever; on the other, you get people (single or taken) who just don't understand what the fuss is all about. Both are valid, of course—but if there's one thing a girl can participate in regardless of her relationship status, it's some ultra-festive makeup fitting the theme.

Makeup that incorporates heart details and shades of red is currently trending on Instagram, with girls sharing their February 14-appropriate looks. Here are a few to inspire you:

To kick things off, here’s Kylie Jenner promoting her Valentine’s collection for Kylie Cosmetics with vivid magenta hair and makeup, including a tiny strategically placed heart.

And here's a fan's personal take.

If a tonal look just isn't for you, pair sharp graphic liner and bold red lips with a bow-struck heart.

This girl's eye makeup isn't what you'd call subtle, but the V-day angle is! Note how she references the theme with gold shimmer shadow shaped into the two halves of a heart.

Or how about the teeniest hearts drawn right below your eyes? We love how they look with lush doll-like lashes.

For a flirty spin, place the hearts right on the outer corners of your eyes to accentuate a smooth cat eye.

Want to put the focus on your pout? Layer a coat of hot pink lippie with some pretty stencil hearts.

Dark lipsticks are dramatic on their own, but if you really want to dial up the drama, utilize your Cupid's bow by forming a heart with a light-reflecting metallic shade.
