Valentine’s Day is tomorrow so if you haven’t decided on a makeup look yet, NYX has a variety of quality pigments at affordable prices to help get you ready for date night.
Recently I’ve been obsessed with the Full Throttle Palettes because the size is convenient for travel and the shades are gorgeous! Daring Damsel is perfect for seductive, neutral looks with classic gold, deep bronzy garnet and 2 mattes to highlight and transition. Bossy contains 2 satin hues - steel grey and deep purple, one creamy matte and bright pink-purple with refined glitter.
The gold palette is creamier in texture so the shadows apply buttery smooth and highly saturated. I love the color contrast and when you add a sexy red lipstick the results are stunning! I wear this color combination on a weekly basis because it is easy to pull off and very flattering. The pigments are long wear with little fallout and because the shades are expertly matched, you can create pretty looks in little time with minimal effort. For date night finish the look with a bold black liner (wing it out for more drama), smudge the bronze shadow under the lower lash line, use the gold to highlight the inner tear ducts and you’re good to go!
Most of my readers know that I love purple and a playful pop of pink is very V-Day appropriate. These shadows are quite buildable but the grey has the strongest pigmentation and the glittery pink is sheer to medium. The formula is silky and applying the deep purple under the lower lash line amps-up the sensual vibe by creating a smoky effect. The Full Throttle Palettes retail for $12 each and come in an assortment of trendy shades.
Lately I’ve been into peachy tones and the NYX Ombré Blush in Soft Flush is perfect for spring! The beautiful coral instantly brightens the complexion for a fresh, vibrant finish and the gradient ranges from light to vivid so you can control the intensity. The top hue has a silvery-peach tint that makes a nice highlight if you don’t want to carry a separate product for creating a glow and the bottom is highly concentrated for more coverage. The blush retails for $13.00 and is available in 7 other lust-worthy shades.
No look is complete without a sultry pout and the NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick is a cult favorite! The range is very versatile with bold finishes and full coverage, intense color. For Valentine’s Day, Pink Lust is a great choice but the neutrals and shocking purple are also nice depending on the look you’re going for. They retail for $10.00 each.
