Valentine’s Day Look Book

Valentine's Day Lookbook

Hello everyone, today’s post is my very first look book style post! You guys are most likely familiar with my 3 look eyeshadow palette reviews where I share different makeup looks you can create with each palette. Today I wanted to share some pink Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks that aren’t in a review format.

But a quick side note… I hate Valentine’s Day! In fact the ONLY thing that I enjoy about a day where businesses capitalize on our love for one another is the soft & romantic makeup looks everyone is wearing on instagram!

Last month I started revamping old blog posts and one of the palettes I was heavily using during this time was the ColourPop Give It To Me Straight Palette. Many of you have already read that review, but I’m going to share the re-created makeup looks that I added to that post. You can check out that review for the eyeshadow shades & application methods I used as well as the lipsticks I’m wearing in each look.

GITMS Mauve Cut Crease

ColourPop GITMS Mauve Cut Crease

Romantic Rose:

This makeup look has all the rosy Valentine’s Day Feels! It’s actually a cut crease but the lid shade ended up being much darker over the concealer than I thought it would be, so it’s hard to tell that I cut the crease at all. It was a happy coincidence because I love the way it turned out! I’m also starting to get better at applying false lashes. I still have a ways to go but I can see progress πŸ™‚ These are my new Esqido lashes!

ColourPop Give It To Me Straight Everyday Look

Blushing Rose:

This is a super simple makeup look with pink eyes and pink lips! I used mostly matte shades with a tiny pop of shimmer in the inner corners of my eyes. I rarely put black on my lower lash line but I felt that it added a little something to the look. It makes this less of a no-makeup/minimal makeup look.

Copper Heart:

So I named these looks completely different in my GITMS review but I felt like re-naming them for Valentines day xD I’m weird, what can I say? This look is still pretty and mauve-y but it has more of a copper theme. The inner corner of my eyes are a white gold and the rest of the cut crease is a coppery oasis. I love how my eyes stand out with a half cut-crease!

Hello Halo:

I’ve shown you a soft pink everyday look, two cut creases, and now I had to include a halo eye. I love how soft this mauve halo eye turned out. It’s not overly dramatic and it has just the right amount of shimmer in the centre. I paired my eyes with a darker lip for this last look.

Also, what do you guys think of my new hair!? These looks were captured fresh from the hair salon, I could never create these curls myself. I like to take advantage of hair-cut days and get lots of blog photos done! I remember doing this when I got my Rogue X Men hair in mid 2017, I photographed so many blog posts that day.

Happy Valentines Day Beauties!

Thank you for reading! I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day if you celebrate it, and a regular February 14th like me if you don’t. How do you do your makeup for V-Day? Do you do anything special? I’d love to know, talk soon! x

    Love this!! It has been a minute since I’ve done a look book and they’re so fun to create!! I love all the looks you’ve created but I think #1 and #3 are my fave! They just look super gorgeous!! And I am loving your hair cut too, I’ve been putting my haircut off haha.

      Thanks Rossy! I wasn’t planning on doing anything for Valentine’s Day but when I started playing with this palette again I got the idea. This palette makes the prettiest pink looks!
      Thank you! I would have put it off longer but I got a gift card to my hair salon for Christmas 😊

        LMAO I wasn’t planning on anything either but same thing happened to me when I tried the Ace Beaute palette! Gotta take advantage of whenever I start getting creative.
        But yes, this palette has gorgeous pink shades! I love it and I’m not a huge fan of pink.

          You never know when inspiration will strike!

          I think I might resubscribe to Boxycharm after we move, I miss getting palettes like this in the mail!

    Love the first look even if the cut crease didn’t quite show up. The shades you used are gorgeous! & your new hair looks amazing!

      It didn’t really look like a cut crease but I think the concealer really helped the shades to pop! Thank you! πŸ’•

    I love all of these looks even though I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, haha. They’re all unique in their own way and absolutely beautiful! xx

      Thank you! I don’t celebrate either but I love all the fun makeup looks! πŸ’•

    I love your Valentine’s Day looks! That cut crease look is beautiful, although they’re all lovely in their own way! We already talked about this, but we don’t really celebrate V-Day either. I just use it as an excuse to eat a nice meal and dessert/chocolate!

      Thank you! They were fun to create.
      I might order in for dessert for Valentine’s Day, now that you said that I want chocolate cheesecake!

      Thank you, it’s a great palette!

    Beautiful looks! I’m definitely a fan of all the pink and rosy tones. I basically only care about Valentine’s day for pink makeup looks too. And I enjoy getting together with my friends and eating desserts!

    I absolutely love you hair styled this way!

      I forgot about desserts, I need to get me some of those next week!
      When Valentine’s Day is over I’ll have to start planning a St. Patricks Day look book. Which I also don’t celebrate, I just like an excuse to wear green makeup xD

      Thank you! I need to learn how to curl my hair like this!

      • February 9, 2019 / 8:34 pm

        Agreed!! I’m going to make Tiramisu for my girls night!!

          That sounds delicious!

    Romantic Rose is my favourite look! Your hair looks so pretty curled, hair salon curls always turn out beautifully <3

      Thank you! I need to go to a class to learn how to curl/style my hair, it’s not a life skill that I ever developed lol

  9. February 8, 2019 / 2:52 pm

    These looks are all so beautiful! The pink really contrasts nicely with your blue eyes. I’m not a Valentine’s person either, so I feel you on that.

    Oh, before I forget, I posted my Morphe Jaclyn Hill Dark Magic Palette review today! I remember you said you were interested to read it. Here you go: Hope you enjoy! πŸ˜‰
