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.
I shared with my thoughts on Valentine’s Day in my Break It Down Kylie Cosmetics Valentine’s Day Collection overview, but just to drive the point home… 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.
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 🙂 These are my new Esqido lashes!
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.
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!
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
