Valentines Day is upon us. So I've put together some looks that range from dramatic to neutral to festive.
The one above is typical girly and festive. It has glitter, it's soft, and pink.
The star of the show is Makeup Geek Halo Sparkler which is a soft cool toned pink glitter. The other shades are Makeup Geek as well and they are Sorbet, Cupcake, Bitten, Corrupt, and Mai Tai.
Lashes are Violet Voss "Vamptress" lashes.
The key thing to remember, as always is: Bigger blending brushes for lighter colors, smaller blending and dense brushes for darker colors. I use a pencil brush for black, dark brown, and greys. Going back to that biggest fluffy brush to blend out harsh lines. Then using a flat stiff brush to apply glitter or pigment. If you use glitter or a sparkler you'll need glitter glue if your using a pigment you can just wet the brush with eye drops or facial spray.
This look is very neutral, it's rose gold. I used Smashbox Art. Color. Love palette and the color Oxidize specifically. Also Ardency Inn Rose Gold is another good option. I'm just blending it with brown colors, but not taking away from the Rose Gold look. So basically you could achieve this by just sweeping a Rose Gold all over your lid and blend. It's that easy.
The lashes are House of Lashes "Siren" lashes. Also very simple looking.
Lips are YSL Tint Oil in 5. Which is Cherry I think. So basically just a super glossy lip that magnifies your natural lip color.
This look is super dark and dramatic with very festive lips.
The eyes are:
MUG: Corrupt, Mai Tai, Sorbet, Cupcake, Poppy, Bitten
Star Crushed Minerals: Phantasmic glitter
House of Lashes: Siren lashes
Vamp and Sweet Talker from ABH. This is an ombre lip. Here is the link for another ombre lip you could do that's very Valentine's Day appropriate and also the same technique as this one.
This is a super colorful, dramatic and edgy look.
The colors are pretty simple:
Ardency Inn "Royal"
MUG Curfew, Corrupt, Mai Tai, and Poppy (Mai Tai is in the inner corner and lower lash line some)
Violet Voss Wendy Glitter
Colour Pop Swerve gel liner
Nubounsom lashes in Dragon Li. (Which are really dramatic, you could also use Violet Voss Vamptress or Iconic lashes from HOL)
This look is very soft and neutral with just a touch of pink here and there.
The lips are Gerard Cosmetics "Rodeo Drive"
The eyes are:
Makeup Geek Mai Tai, Corrupt, Bitten, Latte, Cocoa Bear. Brown shadow on the lower lashline and black on the top.
Nubounsom Bengal lashes
ABH Brow Definer
The face products are worth mentioning as well. Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation for that really healthy look, Makeup Geek Romance blush for a healthy glow to the cheeks. Makeup Geek Break Up and Infidelity contour pans. I baked the face with RCMA No Color Powder (I get mine at Frends Beauty). Benefit Shy Beam Dandelion which is a matte highlight and there is a video here with how I use the RCMA and Shy Beam, and where I place it.
