I have never been much of pink eyeshadow wearer and doing these Valentine's makeup looks gives me the chance to use pinks and purples. As promised, this is an amped up look for the Valentine's Look 3. It is a more smokey look than the previous one that is very appropriate for a romantic dinner and party (if you're planning to go clubbing after). I intentionally didn't make the eye makeup too dark so that a fresh and glowing, youthful face can be maintained even with the smokey eyes.
Let's get started!
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion - always start off with a moisturizer!
Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation in 2.5 Medium - I used my Sigmax F80 for a flawless finish
Benefit Boiing Concealer - Deep
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium - applied lightly with a large powder blush
NYC Sunny Bronzer - contour the cheeks, jaws, temples and nose using my F84
NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Glow - applied on the apples of my cheeks and blended towards the hairline
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Blonde - highlight the bridge of the nose, cupid's bow, and cheek bones
So sorry but the camera isn't picking up the true colors of the shadows. :(
In person it is more vibrant and very sexy looking.
Wet n Wild Brow Kit - fill in the eyebrows following the natural shape of the brows
Too Faced Shadow Insurance - prime the eyelids
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk - apply on the inner third of the eye and blend out with your finge
Urban Decay Tease Eyeshadow - with a blending brush, apply slightly above the crease and towards the inner corner of the eye (this will act as a blending color for the shadows as well as shape the eye); with a smudge brush, bring this color on the outer third of the lower lash line
Wet n Wild Lust Palette
- Purple Shadow - apply on the outer half of the lid with a flat shader brush; use the previously used blending brush to blend out the harsh edges
- Deep Plum Shadow - with a crease brush, apply on the outer V of the eyes, blend out using the blending brush
Urban Decay Tainted Eyeshadow - apply in the inner third of the eye on top of the white base
IN2IT Ritzy, Pearly Pink Shadow - apply on the tear duct area with a pencil brush
Urban Decay Foxy Eyeshadow - apply as a brow bone highlight
NYX Super Skinny Marker - line the upper lash line thinly
Wet n Wild Megashine Lip Color in Pink Champagne
