GTL: Valentines Day Makeup

Roses are red, violets are blue. Valentines Day is coming up, so here’s a pictorial for YOU! haha! Don’t judge me, I tried. Anyways, the day of love, also known as “Valentines Day” or “Single Awareness Day,” is rapidly approaching. Ahhhhh, I can smell the sweet chocolates and roses already. Whether you are in a relationship or single as a strand of hair, why not look fabulous regardless of what you’re doing on this special day? YAAAS HUNTY! You know I most definitely got you covered on that! Here is a simple, like super duper simple, like only FOUR shades simple, and versatile look that can be paired up with literally any lip color. As always, you do not have to use the same products as I did. Please feel free to use whatever you have. Makeup can always be erased so get creative! But not too creative if you know what I mean (haha). With that being said, let’s get started!

Step 1: After applying a primer or base to the eyelids, apply a matte cream eyeshadow all over the lid up to the brow bone. I find that doing this helps with blending and prevents blotchy patches. I used the shade “Brulee” by Wet n’ Wild.

Step 2: Apply a light brown transition shade onto the crease and blend. I used the shade “Naked” from the Urban Decay Naked One palette.

Step 3: Apply a warm brown shade and blend it into the lighter brown shade. I used “Brown Script” by MAC.

Step 4: Re-apply the cream shade onto the lid to intensify the color.

Step 5: Apply a warm chocolate brown shade onto the outer portions of the eyelids for added definition. I used “Swiss Chocolate” by MAC.

Step 6: First apply the warm brown shade (Brown Script) onto the lower lash line. Then, apply the chocolate brown shade (Swiss Chocolate) onto the outer third of the lower lash line for a subtle smokiness.

Step 7: Apply mascara, eyeliner, and your favorite false eyelashes. Then, apply a shimmery champagne shade onto the inner corners of your eyes to brighten things up a little. I used the color “Sin” from Urban Decay’s Naked One palette.

Step 8: Pick any shade of lipstick that you’d like to pair up with this look. I personally went with the hot pink 😉

And your look is complete! It’s soft, it’s simple, and last but not least, it’s sexy! Anyone can rock this look not only on Valentines Day but on any occasion. Please try this look out, you will not regret it! I hope you all have a very special Valentines Day with that special someone and if you’re single, there’s nothing that a tub of ice cream and Netflix won’t fix or a night out with your friends of course. Until next time, stay weird my friends =)
