Valentine's Day Makeup Look | Soft & Romantic

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Valentine's Day is coming up, and maybe that's exciting to some of you, or maybe not! 

Honestly, my husband and I haven't ever really celebrated it (because we love each other every day! *barf* No, I don't know we just don't care)

However I do get really into the red dresses, and all that cutesy romantic date look stuff (which you can clearly use all year round). Creatively I'm just inspired around this time!

There's so many possibilities too when it comes to creating a "date look" ; wether you wanna go classic with a red lip, soft and romantic with some subtle pinks or straight up sexy with a smokey eye...

I've come up with some looks you can wear on your next date or just plain next night out (cause clearly you don't need a man to look fabulous either!). 

Here is my soft & romantic look using mainly drugstore products!

  1. I used Inked in Pink all over the lid, then gently applied Chocolate Suede with my fingers on the outer edge of the lid.
  2. Using a blending brush I blended in that darker shade to soften it up and bring it up into the crease.
  3. Using shade #4 from the Mad for Mauve palette and an angled brush, I lined the outer part of my lower lash line (half way in) and the outer part of my upper lash line too, stopping short of a subtle wing.
  4. Using shade #2, I lined the rest of my lower lash line connecting with the dark shade (and blending them for a more seamless effect) and bring up towards the inner corner of the eye.
  5. I also gentle dabbed shade #2 in the middle of my lid (where your pupil hits) to brighten up the look.
  6. Using shade #1 I brightened up the inner corner using a small pencil brush.
  7. I used also used shade #1 to smooth out the edges of the Chocolate Suede and brought it up to my brow bone.
  8. Finally, I lined my water lines with a dark purple eye liner and applied mascara.
That's pretty much it! I hope it's not too hard to follow, and I wish I had the set up to do a video but...Let me know if you have any questions and stay tuned for more looks!

Talk to you soon,
