Valentine's Day Makeup Look | Lady in Red

Thursday, February 12, 2015

To follow up the soft & romantic look (HERE), we have here a just as easy to create and a tad more classic look!

Who doesn't like a good red lip? And this shade/formula is EVERYTHING. 

Thank god this isn't a hair blog? Amirite? #hotmess

  1. Prime eyelids using Primer Potion
  2. With a flat eyeshadow brush, pack on W.O.S all over the lid
  3. With a fluffy brush, sweep Naked 2 in the crease
  4. With a pencil brush, pick up a bit of Faint and draw a V from the outer corner of the eye into the crease. With a blending brush, blend into the crease. This will deepen the crease and give more dimension to the look.
  5. Use Foxy to blend the shades from the crease to the brow bone. This will just help everything look seamless and clean.
  6. Highlight your brow bone and inner corner of the eye using Venus.
  7. With an angled brush use Crave to create a subtle winged liner on your upper lash line. Smudge out for a softer effect.
This look really showcased the Urban Decay Palette I've talking so much about lately, I used all the shades, and this wasn't even really planned! Also I decided to use the Rimmel Wonder'Lash because it's really the most lengthening mascara and I didn't feel I needed extra drama in that department. I just wanted to keep the eye soft and flirty and really pack a punch with the red lip!

Hope you guys enjoyed it, again if you have any questions you can leave them down below!

Talk to you soon,

Val
