Valentine's EOTD

With Valentine's Day coming up next week Tuesday, I decided to work on a simple Valentine's look.

Products Used:

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden
Urban Decay Pistol Eyeshadow (from NAKED 2)
MAC Eyeshadows: Yogurt and Swish
NARS Eyeshadow: Red color from Hanamichi Palette
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
L'Oreal Voluminous False Lashes Mascara
Tarte Starlet Amazonian Clay Blush (From Starlet Palette)
Revlon Berry Smoothie Lip Butter

Primed my eyelids with Eden. Yogurt is applied just under the eyebrows. Swish is applied to the inner 1/3 of eyelid from lash line to crease line. NARS red eyeshadow is applied to middle 1/3 of eyelid, from lash line to just above crease line and blending upward and outward. Pistol is applied (the one marked with the white "x") to the outer 1/3 of the eyelid from lash line to just above creaseline and slightly blending it upward and outward. I also blend it in the crease line having it fade as I work my way toward the inner eye. Lined the upper lash line and outer corner of the lower lash line with K-Palette. Using Pistol, I apply it over K-Palette on the lower lash line and blending and fading it towards the middle of the lower lash line. Mascara is applied to uncurled eyelashes.

Starlet is applied to my cheeks and Berry Smoothie to my lips.

This eye makeup look is definitely much more pastel than I usually wear. As a result, I really felt that I needed to wear mascara although I don't normally do so, especially for going to work every day.

I consider it to be a sweet and innocent look, neither of which I am. Haha!

Hope you'll be enjoying Valentine's Day with your special someone.
