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! 😉
