One of my favorite holidays is this weekend + per usual, I’m partaking in all things pink, red, chocolate, heart shaped, and romantic! Today, I want to share this really beautiful soft + sultry Valentine’s Day makeup look that I created!
I’m no makeup artist, but like most girls, I love playing with all kinds of products + creating new looks! If you’re interested in this one here, keep on reading! 🙂
So a quick back story on how this look came to be. My Godfather is the absolute best…
…Every year for Christmas he gives me the Bare Minerals exclusive holiday gift set! When I opened their Storybook Romance kit this year, I knew I’d be playing with it for Valentine’s Day!
I didn’t use everything included, but tried to use as many of the products as I could! I applied my foundation, concealer, powders + bronzer beforehand, and then went on to finish the look with this set! Take a look…
Step 1: I applied the Prime Time primer to my lids. This primer is wonderful – I love the creamy consistency, the way it dries, how it wears, and how it holds.
Step 2: I applied the lighter pink shade [“Honor”] to my lids.
Step 3: I used the deep purple [“Ambition”] in the crease of my lid, and just beneath the brow bone.
Step 4: I used just a touch of the dark black shade [“Legacy”] in the corners of my lids!
Step 5: I took the lightest powder [“Virtue”] and applied it to the brow bone and just beneath the eyebrow!
Step 6: I chose to use the Round The Clock black liner on my eyes — smudging the bottom just a bit for a more sultry look.
Step 7: I applied their Lash Domination mascara to my top + bottom lashes…and of course nicked my nose. Try *not* to do that.
Step 8: They provided four completely different shades of blush, but I went for “Enchanted”, a peachy pink + applied it to the apples of my cheeks. 🙂
Step 9: Of the two lip colors, I thought that “Go Getter” was more Valentine’s Day appropriate! 🙂
And with that, the look was complete!
I’ve actually worn this look twice + both times received so many compliments! I don’t wear this much makeup on the daily, but for a special occasion or night out, it’s fun to do it up a little bit.
While I don’t use Bare Escentuals/BareMinerals products regularly, I am consistently impressed by them — especially their lip sticks + glosses.
This kit made such a wonderful gift — if you’re looking for a nice little present for the makeup lover in your life, this would be it. Order one here! 😉
Have you been experimenting with any Valentine’s Day looks?
Do you use BareMinerals products?
Thank you so much, love! XO
Gorgeous as always. And it really makes your eyes pop!Love it!
Thank you!! Eye makeup is seriously like magic!! 🙂
Beautiful look, especially your lips look amazing! I am actually uploading my Valentine’s day makeup tutorial right now to my channel.
That set seems pretty good.
Thank you so much! I love this light pink lip color 🙂 And yay!! I can’t wait to check it out! I love all of the Valentine’s Day looks 🙂
What an awesome godfather!! I love the look you created!! It really is so perfect for Valentine’s Day!! You look so stunning (as always)!! I love it!!
He is the best! And thank you! I’m so glad you approve! My skills are not nearly as impressive as yours haha. If only I could have nailed the perfect winged liner for this!!
Haha girl what are you talking about lol!! Your makeup skills are amazing!! Hehe!!
That is an awesome gift! I have a Bare Minerals eye shadow that I can’t live without. I always get mascara somewhere other than my eye lashes, it never fails. This look is perfect!
Such a fun gift, and thank you – I’m glad you like it! 🙂 Their products really are wonderful, I haven’t tried their face makeup in years, but the shadows, and lip products are amazing. Which shadow do you love?? There’s *nothing* worse than getting mascara all over your face…especially when the rest of your makeup is already done! Grr.
My favorite is Nude Beach. Emily Maynard said she wore it on The Bachelorette so naturally I had to have it (I’m obsessed with her). It’s sparklely, but subtle enough to wear every day. I haven’t tried their face stuff in forever either, but I think I need to wonder to the BM section more often.
Hahaha! I do the same thing with my fave celebs. That sounds like a gorgeous color though — and right?! I think BM is underrated!
Thank you so much! XOXO
So soft and beautiful! You are so lucky that you get such an amazing gift each year 🙂
Thank you, I really do love this look!! And yes, he is the best for many reasons. He’s not much of a shopper + I think the women at the BM store really helped him out when looking for a gift one year that he’s gone back every year since! haha They’re always so fun to receive. 🙂
Such a pretty look- now I want that kit!!
It’s an amazing kit!! Such a nice assortment of products for going out + everyday!! 🙂
Oh lovely! You are stunning with or without makeup. Awesome tutorial.
Very sweet of you, thank you so much. I’m glad you enjoyed it! XOXO

I love this look!! Gorgeous!! That kit is amazing, the colors are just so beautiful!! You are rocking it!! Xo
Thank you!!! It’s such a great kit – so many goodies for everyday or special occasions! 🙂
Such a pretty look and your pictures are such great quality! I’ll definitely have to check out their gift sets next holiday season!!
Thanks love!! Yes, you must! They usually come with a really cute makeup bag or a clutch too!! 🙂
Love those eye colors… Anything that shimmers is a WIN!!! That lipgloss is “poppin” too 🙂
Thank you!! A little shimmer goes a long way! 🙂 I really love the combo w the lip as well!
You’re so beautiful!!! <3 I love this look! I'm not usually a big fan of Bare Minerals products either, particularly because those loose shadows drive me crazy! You did such a good job though! And I'm working on a blog post right now for Friday where I'll tell you my secret for fixing mascara when it doesn't behave 😉
Right back atcha, love! You’re the sweetest! XOXO
