It's just something about Valentine's Day that makes us want to go all out, especially when it comes to preparing for that date night with our husband or boyfriend. That's fine, but you don't always have to do that with your makeup. It can be simply done, but look so beautiful and elegant at the same time. Sometimes with makeup doing a little can have a bigger impact. Also, with most men, when you don't wear as much makeup it makes you appear more confident and because of that, more attractive.
On my eyes, I combined a light and medium pink eyeshadow right above the lid. Above the outer side of the upper lid and onto the outer corner of the lid, I added a burgundy shade of eyeshadow. I blend each shadow in as I go so that the shadows appear seamless. On the mid portion of my lid and all the way to the inner corner I added a bronze shade, and this shade just adds a gorgeous focal point to this look. I added a black eye liner onto the upper and lower waterline of my eyes. I then took the light pink eyeshadow on a thin makeup brush and blended it onto my lower lash line. I added the medium pink and did the same as with the lighter pink. With the burgundy shadow I only added it to the outer corner to combine with the makeup on the upper lid and blended out to the mid portion of my lower lash line. I added a very natural looking, light weight, thin banned false lash to my eyes, but this is very optional. A good black eyeliner on both top and bottom lashes can create a similar result. I used a black mascara for my lower lash to complete the eye look.
On my face, I used a powder foundation. I lightly contoured my jaw line, cheekbones and forehead and blended it all out. Then I used a rose colored blush on my cheeks to give a very natural finish. I added a champagne colored highlight to my upper cheek bones, the bridge and tip of my nose, as well as my upper lip area (cupids bow) and the mid portion of my forehead. This gives a subtle, yet natural glow to my skin.
For my lips, I combined a dark brown and a pink lip liner to outline my lips. I filled them in lightly with both lip liners and used a rose colored lipstick to complete my lips.
