Valentine's Look 1: Casual Date

It's one of those occasions again that gives every girl an excuse to put on makeup and be pretty whether they have someone or not. Like the holidays which I did some makeup looks for you ladies, I thought I'd do the same with Valentine's too. There will be three looks and this is the first one: a soft and cute look that is perfect for a daytime and casual date. This is also great for the ladies who are in school and needs a toned down look.



I have gotten requests to do looks using this e.l.f. 144 Eyeshadow Palette so I'll be using this for the look, of course feel free to use whatever eyeshadows you have. :)

Face/Cheeks:
Revlon Photoready Foundation in Shell & Urban Decay Tinted Moisturizer in Bulletproof - mixed together and applied using a stippling brush (Sigmax F80)
Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles in Medium
NYX Brown Eyeshadow - contour cheeks, temples, nose and jaw (I used my Sigmax F84)
NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Boho Chic - apply using your fingers or brush (I used my Sigmax 82) on the apples of the cheeks and blend out
MAC MSF in Blonde - highlight the bridge of the nose, tops of the cheeks, Cupid's bow and forehead

Brows:
Wet n Wild Brow Kit

Eyes:
MAC Painterly Paint Pot - prime the eyes
Eyeshadow 1 - using a flat shader brush, place the color all over the lid, not past the crease
Eyeshadow 2 - as a transition shade,  using a fluffy blending brush, blend it into the crease and a little above it, blending out the pink eyeshadow too
Eyeshadow 3 - using another flat shader brush or the other side of the brush you previously used, place the color in the outer V and right at the crease, blend again with a fluffy brush
Eyeshadow 4 - highlight the brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes
Eyeshadow 5 - with a smudge brush, place this shadow in the lower lash line
Milani Liquif'eye Black Liner - line the upper waterline
Maybelline Line Stiletto in Blackest Black - line the upper lash line, you may wing it out as you like
Maybelline One by One Mascara Waterproof & L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Hydrofuge 


Lips:
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan - apply and blend out with your finger
Stila Lip Glaze in Fantasy


Tips: For a day time or casual date, always have soft eyes and glowy cheeks so that it looks natural and sweet. It is best to use lip and cheek tints or cream blushes to achieve the look. If you're using a lipstick, blend it out with your finger so that the color would not be too bold and gives out a nice stain. Blending the lipstick out is also a great way for the product not to stick and emphasize lip imperfections. Last but not the least, always smile. :)
