Hello beauties, Chicago’s currently having a snow day today, we are expected to have a foot of snow by tonight, I love snow so this is pretty great. Since there is a snow day today, I decided to take advantage of the day and work on today’s blog post and a few other ones! For today’s post I will be showing you a Simple Glam Valentine’s Day Makeup Look, (as a disclaimer I am not a makeup artist or anything, but I do love makeup and love to share my creativity with all of you). I hope this post gives you ideas for Valentine’s Day makeup, I kept today’s post shorter and I will also link down all the products I used down below.
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Kit in Radiant
- Mini Becca Rose Gold Highlighter
- Luxie 205 Tapered Blending Eye Brush
- Luxie 229 Small Tapered Blending Eye Brush
- Bh Cosmetics V5 Vegan Blending Brush
- Real Techniques Shading Brush
- Wet n Wild Large Eyeshadow Brush
- Essence Prisma Glow Shine Lip Gloss
1st Step: To start off, I use the shade Buon Fresco as my transition color, using my Luxie 205 Tapered Blending brush. I blend the color to get a seamless base for my eyeshadow.
2nd Step: With the same brush I previously used before, I apply a bit of the color “Burnt Orange” into the crease.
3rd Step: With my Luxie 229 Tapered Blending brush, I apply the shade “Red Ochre” to the outermost and innermost parts of my crease, leaving the middle empty, doing this adds a bit of depth to my eyes.
4th Step: Taking my Wet n Wild Large shadow brush, I compact the shade “Love Letter”, on the center of my lid, working it into my crease. I make sure my lid is bright and fully covered. (The color really starts to pick up here).
5th Step: With the color “Venetian Red”, I use the Real Techniques Shading brush to apply along my lash line, slightly smoking it out, and to darken the outer corners of my eyes.
6th Step: Using “Venetian Red” again, I take my bh cosmetics V5 Blending brush to really blend out “Love Letter” and to make the shadow look seamless.
7th Step: Now for the shimmer, I use the dense side of the brush that comes with the Modern Renaissance and apply the color “Antique Bronze” first packing it onto the center of my lid, then taking “Vermeer” and doing the same thing, and lastly applying the shade under my brow bone to define it, and that completes the eye look!
For my face, I will not go into to much detail, since it is very similar to my Current Makeup Routine | Winter 2018, however for blush I decided to use the color “Breeze” from the ABH Radiant Blush kit. For highlighter I used my mini Becca Rose Gold Highlighter and for my lips I used the Essence Prisma Glow Shine Lipgloss. A simple glam casual Valentine’s day makeup look.
