VALENTINE'S DAY // MAKEUP IDEA & TUTORIAL9:26 AM
The month of love is finally here!
In order to celebrate and be festive for the Valentine's day, I decided to create a makeup look which inspired by the colors associated to Valentine's day.
I did this makeup look last week for a nice dinner, it's totally wearable for any event :)
Okay let's start!
1) FOUNDATION AND CREAM CONTOUR
I know cream contouring is not everyone's cup of tea, but I do love it for special events like this!
Just putting the cream contour on the hollow of my cheekbones, jawline, and side of my forehead.
Then blend them in together with your foundation to get a natural shadow.
I'm just doing my everyday eyebrow routine.
I'm using a dark brown brow pencil to fill them in and brush them with a spoolie to get a more natural finish.
3) EYE MAKEUP
a. First step, prime my eyes because I want the bright colored shadows to show up nicely
b. I put on a pinkish coral matte shadow all over the lid.
c. Taking a dark brown shimmer shadow and putting it on the outer v
d. Blend everything with fluffy blending brush with a matte medium brown eyeshadow
e. Darken it up a bit with black shadow on the outer v
f. Blend it out with matte medium brown shadow
g. Then I take white eyeliner and put it on my tear duct and blend it
h. Putting a white shimmer shadow on top of that eyeliner
4) EYE LINER AND EYELASHES
Lining my eyes with a thin line and put coats of mascara on my lashes.
(Sorry there is no photo courtesy of this step)
I used a pink blush which has a micro glitter on it so that you don't need extra highlighter since it's already 2 in 1 ;)
I wore a matte pink lipstick to complete up the look and top it off with a gloss.
What are your plans for Valentine's day?
Fun fact: my name is Valencia, but I was not born on February. Can you guess what month I was born in? ;)
