Valentine’s Day: Ideas for Hair, Makeup, and Outfit

13 Feb

It’s Valentine’s Day!

Sometimes a girl needs a holiday for an excuse to put
a tad more effort on the total look than usual.
It doesn’t matter if you are single, a strong woman is all game!
Especially when it comes to LOVE!

For the face I chose a peachy pink eyeshadow paired with intense almost red corally shade. For depth I added a burgundy/deep plum color on the outer V-shape of the eye, but subtly so. On lips it’s just a soft nude with pink undertone. For the hair it is an updo that is romantic and playful. It is so easy to do! No hair gadgets needed! To switch it into a date night look, the lips is replaced with deep glossy red, the eyes are toned down by adding light-reflective light-colored eyeshadow. Re-line eyes with midnight black but do not go all the way in at the lower water line. Also to add dimension to the face, contour around the face and under the cheekbones. When your hair is twisted and curled all day, when you loosen it up for the night you have instant waves — very Victoria Secret-ish.

It’s so easy to switch from one look after the other!

Note: I am trying out the straight, no arch, thick eyebrow look.
You can do your  eyebrows however you wish.

This is the first time I listed all the stuff I used. Personally, I don’t like it because it limits the viewers.
They assume they have to use the same thing when that’s clearly not the case.
But in almost all beauty blogs and vlogs they list it down to save themselves the hassle of answering questions regarding what they used.
What do you think? Do I have to list/show them or just describe each (I prefer the latter).
Let me know by commenting below! ^_^

I used the Mememe products I showed in my previous post. This look serves as a demo on how you can use it!
Even the Sleek Pout Paint, it is not just for the lips! Did you see?
I learned that trick from gossmakeupartist. Awesome, yeah?
I used to own a Bobbi Brown Color Corrector (i lost it), so I guess this is a good alternative!

I hope you like this look. Don’t ever think it is only for Valentines!
HAPPY VALENTINES EVERYONE! ALL WE NEED IS LOVE!!!

HUGE THANKS TO LORRAINE ANG WHO SENT SOME STUFF!
