I don’t normally do holiday related posts but I figured I might as well try one out! I am also not a huge celebrator of Valentine’s day but I like pink eyeshadows so why not?
Anyways – onto the makeup! As for a base, you can just use any of your normal base products. Recently, I’ve been loving the Rimmel Radiance BB cream (which you can get on ASOS?? who knew!) and the Maybelline Master Conceal concealer. I love that the BB cream has SPF so if my moisturizer doesn’t have it – it’s not that big of a deal! On top of that, I like to use the cult product – the Rimmel Stay Matter Powder. It leaves my skin matte (as the name suggests) and leave my makeup in place all day.
Since this is a Valentine’s day look, I went for a pink blush on the Elf Blush Palette. This palette really has every color you could ever want. And for 6$ you really can’t beat the price! I used a nice mauve-y pink color for my blush, which I think goes perfectly with the rest of the look.
My eyeshadow is definitely my favorite part of the look. I used my Lorac Romantic Rose Palette (can’t find it online… sorry!) and one shade from the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette. I started off with a beautiful champagne-pink color my Lorac palette all over the lid. I then took a darker rose color in the crease to give it a bit of dimension. I then used my Reavealed 2 palette and used the matte pink/maroon color (the one under the gold shade in the palette. they don’t have names?) in the outer corner.
I then used my L’oreal liquid eyeliner to add the smallest line possible. As always, I used my trust Clinique high impact mascara. For lips, I don’t normally wear lipstick but for these different posts I like to experiment so I went for the Kate Moss shade in 17. It’s the perfect dusty-rose color and stays on for so long.
Do you have any valentine’s day plans? Mine include netflix… ha! So exciting but that is the single life for you.
As always – let me know what you think in the comments or if you recreate this look!
