Valentine’s Day Makeup

February 13, 2017 , In: Beauty , With: 12 Comments

So seeing as tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, I figured I would share my Valentine’s Day makeup look with you guys! I don’t actually have a valentine this year, so I don’t have any special plans tomorrow, but this would be a great makeup look to wear on a date, or just a night out with friends too!  

First, I used my Maybelline Fit Me foundation, I am a big fan of this foundation, I feel like it gives a beautiful coverage and luminosity to the skin and it creates the perfect base.  Then I used my the Fit Me concealer as well, again, I am a big fan of this concealer, it’s super affordable and has nice coverage. 

Then I went in with my Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette.  I hadn’t really used this palette in a while, so I brought it out again for this look.  I like that it has a cool-tone shade to get a really nice contour, as well as a warmer shade to give a nice overall bronzed look.

Once I have my base on, I used a really pretty dusty rose colored blush on my cheeks to add some color to them.  This blush is by Stila It came in a holiday palette of theirs a couple of years ago, but I love it, I think it’s such a pretty color perfect for this look.

Then I went in with the Elf Baked Blush in Pinktastic.  Recently I have been using this blush almost everyday as my cheekbone highlight.  I think it is so beautiful, and gives a really pretty natural looking glow, I just love it!  I first take it on a large stippling brush and lightly dust it all over the apples of my cheeks, kind of like a blush overlay, then I take a highlighting fan brush and focus more of the product on the high points of my cheekbones, for a really glam effect. 

Then for the eyes, I used my trusty Stila Eyes Are the Windows to the Soul Palette.  This has been one of my all time favorite palettes for a while now, and I find I use it almost everyday.  The shades in here are so versatile, so you can create a really soft simple look or a super glam dramatic look, with just one palette. But I went for a look with a little more drama today, using this really pretty silver shade, to create a little bit of a smoky eye. Then I just went in with a generous coat of mascara to complete the eye makeup.

And finally I used my Rimmel #11 lipstick.  I think this is such a beautiful deep red shade, perfect for Valentine’s day!  

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

      Thanks so much! 🙂 But I know right, any excuse for some glam makeup! I’m wearing the Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal Volume Express mascara, one of my all time favs!

  3. That lip color looks so good on you! I also use the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation and it’s amazing, especially for the drugstore price.
