For those of you gals who have big V-day plans, I wanted to share a pretty makeup look that you can wear day or night to go on a date or out with your girl friends! You know I love a simple make up look, so of course I made this one really easy and simply for you. I also wanted to make it wearable but still feel like it’s a special occasion by adding a fun lip, although you can adjust the look to whatever makes you feel comfortable! Keep on reading to see how I put this look together!
Ever since I posted my Winter Makeup Look, I have been loving using my Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Primer for a glowy look. I love how it made my skin look! Next I use my Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation in 322 Warm Beige for foundation and My Too Faced Born This Way Concealer under my eyes in the shade Natural Beige. I use my hands to apply my foundation and concealer because I like the way it looks better, plus the clean up is easier. To set everything I use my Laura Mercier Translucent powder, my absolute favorite setting powder and the only one I’ll use!
For my bronzer, I always use the Too Faced Dark Chocolate Soleil bronzer to give my skin a little bit of a glow. For blush, I really love using the color Blushed Copper from Becca lately. It’s such a pretty bronze-y color and it’s got shimmer in it so I can even ski[ highlighter and still get a pretty glow.
For my eyebrows, I always use my Anastasia Brow Definer in Ebony and set them with a clear mascara. I like this to fill my brows in better than a thin pencil because I already have full brows, so they don’t need to be filled in very precisely.
For my eyelids, I went back and used my Morphe G35 palette that I love so much. As my base, I started off with the color Sandy because it’s just the perfect all over color. For my lid, I used the color Paradise which is a pretty shimmery, pinky, tan color. Then in my crease, I used a little bit of the color SPF and the color Deserted to finish off my look. I also did a thin-ish line along my top lashline using my Maybelline Line Stiletto eyeliner. Of course, for my lashes, I used my favorites: Diorshow Lash Primer, Diorshow Volume Mascara and my L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black.
To really finish everything up, I used my MAC Spice lip liner and an old Maybelline Matte lipstick in the color Toasted Truffle . I also sprayed my entire face with my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting spray. Since they changed the packaging, I feel like this product works so much better than it did before!
