I'm not going to lie, Valentine's has never been one of my favourite holidays. I really don't like "greeting card" holidays. I much prefer random acts of love than doing something special because it's a holiday. We should treat our loved ones like everyday is Valentine's day.
Now with that being said, this year I find that I'm randomly really excited for Valentine's day. Alex and I don't have any plans (which I am 100% happy with). For some reason I just want to decorate our place with hearts and red and pink. So I thought that I would share a few different makeup looks you could try for Valentine's Day.
To start things off I pretty much did my everyday makeup but added a really dark, vampy lipstick to add a little "something-something" to the look. I kept may face and eyes super simple so they wouldn't be competing with the bold lip colour. Here are the following products I used (I am using the same foundation and concealer for all makeup looks, so I will just share the products that will be changing with every look)
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Barely Branded: This stuff is seriously the greatest. Since it is cream based, you can use it as a primer underneath your eyeshadow, or by itself. It's also has the perfect amount of shimmer to use an under the brow highlight. I love how versatile it is.
Maybelline Lip Studio Colour Blur in Plum Please: When I first saw this colour, I almost didn't buy because of how bold it is, but I'm glad I took a chance. The texture of these lipsticks are incredible! They glide on so easily and keep my lips hydrated. There is nothing more annoying than feeling your lipstick crease and crack throughout the day, so I love that this lip pencil leaves very little residue on the lips.
Revlon Blush in Rose Glow: I usually prefer matte versus shimmery blushes, but when I saw this blush a few months ago I absolutely fell in love with the colour. The shimmer isn't too chunky or glittery so it's adds the perfect amount of glow to your face, without making you look like a disco ball. The colour is very natural, but has enough pigment to give your cheeks a little flushed look.
Covergirl Supersizer Mascara: I used to only use mascaras with brush applicators as opposed to plastic wands. But I heard so many great things about this mascara, I thought I would give it a whirl. It has easily become my go-to favourite mascara. I like to have about 3-4 different mascaras for different looks, but recently I've been grabbing this one every single day. I love every thing about it. The wand, the product itself, and the way it makes my lashes look.
