Valentine's Day Makeup

Hello everyone,
As Valentine's day is almost here I decided to do another makeup look. I have a ton of pink and red eye shadows, lipsticks and blush so what better time to play around with them! 

Some people enjoy fuzzy teddy bears, heart shaped gifts and boxes of sweets this time of year and while I do enjoy the romance I prefer practical gifts. Flowers are pretty but they wilt and die, I don't need to eat an entire box of chocolate that will end up on my thighs while I go into a sugar coma and teddy bears just collect at the back of my closet. Makeup, clothes, trips, books and jewelry is what floats my boat, although a romantic dinner and a movie with my hubby is all I need. For those who find themselves single, remember that Valentine's Day is what you make of it, so why not celebrate all types of love and the people who make you feel appreciated, cared for and special. My sis and I like to get each other little Valentine gifts as well.

I did a Valentine's Day makeup look using dark bold pinks and a bright shimmery vanilla pigment.

To get this look I used:
*Urban Decay Primer Potion
*Outer V area - bold pink from the Coastal Scents 120 Palette (2)
*Lid color- Shimmery vanilla pigment by Faces Cosmetics
*Crease: combination of Faces vanilla pigment + Madison Street Beauty eye shadow in: Pink Garnet
*Brow bone highlight: white shadow from the Coastal Scents 120 palette (2)

*NYX lipstick in the color Paris

*MAC Fix + Spray
*MAC Studio Fix pressed powder
*NYX blush in the color Pinched
*Make-Up-Forever HD powder

I hope everyone enjoys their Valentine's Day

xoxo ~Erica

  6. Great overall look and Happy Valentine's Day to you! I agree with you about the gifts--I prefer coffee, wine, books, and outings over flowers and chocolate.
