Since Valentine's Day is around the corner, I wanted to create a look for the occasion, whether you are going on a date or out with your friends. This look is supposed to enhance your natural beauty, but is still sexy and feminine. You don't have to use the exact same products. If you have similar items, they will certainly do the trick!
In order to give some color to the face I applied Chanel Cream Blush in Chamade (#67). Don't be scared of the bright pink color because the cream texture blends very easily. Then, I added the Body Shop Honey Bronzer in shade #4 with the Real Technique Blush Brush using a "3" motion to warm up and lightly contour. I finished the face with this beautiful highlighter from Laura Mercier with the F55 Sigma brush that I applied on the highest point of my cheeks, bridge of the nose and the Cupid's bow. This will give a subtle sheen and glow to the face.
The eye-makeup is also very easy to do. I just used the same Body Shop bronzer on the crease with the Sigma E35 blending brush to add some depth. Then, with the E25 Sigma brush, I applied a shimmery cream color (Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Tzarine) on the lid and the inner corner. This will open the eyes while catching the light.
For the next step you can use any eyeliner you prefer (pencil/gel/liquid). I personally prefer gel eyeliner because it doesn't move or budge and this one by Maybelline is completely waterproof. Draw the line you are the most comfortable with. I wanted mine to be thin to medium with a wing to create a cat-eye effect. Then, just apply a bronze or copper eyeliner (I used Make Up For Ever in #L10 Copper) on the bottom lashes and the waterline. Finish the look with your best black mascara (YSL Effet Faux-Cils Baby Doll).
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! :)
For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow.
