The Valentine's Day Beauty DiaryMonday, February 10, 2014
Valentine's day is a very exciting time for me, yes because my boyfriend always makes it special, but mostly because it's the perfect excuse to break out the brighter, more vibrant makeup! (it's nice to get a break from the darker winter colours)
I have no set plans for Valentine's Day as we always seem to wing it with his crazy schedule but I thought i would play around with ideas for an evening out. I was inspired to do a girly look with a glowy, bronzed complexion and a bright pink lip.
For the eyes, I wanted to do something simple but pretty and feminine and ended up with a rose-gold and purple toned eye with bold liner. (Sorry it's not perfect, I have VERY shaky hands)
|excuse the broken blood vessel under my eye, did not notice that was there|
The look was quick and easy and my boyfriend definitely liked it!
I used the L'oreal Magic Lumi Primer mixed in with my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in porcelain, the Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer and the NYX HD Concealer in porcelain for my base. I followed up with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and the Rockateur Boxed Blush. I followed my everyday eyebrow routine (post coming soon) using the Anastasia Brow Wiz in Caramel and Benefit's Gimme Brow in light/medium. For the eyes, I used my new Rimmel Glam Eyes palette in Burgundy Palace, the Maybelline Master Precise Liner, and Benefit's They're Real Mascara. And lastly, for the lips I used my new addiction, Maybelline's Colour Elixir in Captivating Carnation.
