VALENTINE'S DAY MAKEUP LOOK

This is going to be a chocked-full post!! I recorded a video for this look a couple of days ago so if you'd rather skip everything and just watch how to achieve it, then skip to the bottom for the embedded video!! It's just a soft purple eye with fake(!!!) lashes for some extra flirtiness. In my mind, Valentine's Day was created so that women could have a day to simply splurge and feel good about themselves. It seems that everybody feels bad about themselves instead and that's such a shame! Just because you're single doesn't mean you can't get festive and without a doubt doesn't mean that you're not loved.

Don't those false lashes make you swoon?! I must start wearing them more often....

Here's the whole gang! More products were used but these were the stars.

Essie 'Splash of Grenadine', Maybelline Eyestudio gel liner, MAC 'Please Me' lipstick, Victoria's Secret lipstick in 'Spotlight', NYX eyeliner in black, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk', Makeup Forever Aqua Cream eyeshadow in #18, NYX eyeshadow in white, MAC false lashes #34 and the Urban Decay 'Fun' eyeshadow palette

--
This look was mainly created out of my Urban Decay 'Fun' palette which features six shadows, two of which I used for this look! You can guess which ones, Fishnet and Freakshow.


The basic gist of things is a lighter purple shade all over the lid followed by a white or champagne shadow in the inner 1/3 and a dark purple into the crease with a light brown transition color and the darker purple on your bottom lash line. Line your tightline and also line your upper lash line. Pop on some flirty false lashes on top and use a spunky purple mascara on the bottom ones. Do your usual facial routine and follow up with playfully pink cheeks and a soft pink lip.
