Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial



Valentine's Day season is drawing near and you might be in need of a festive makeup to go along with your amazing outfit. Inspired by pink and metallic tones I have created this rose gold eye makeup and a straightforward and simple tutorial to follow!

I apologize in advance for my eyebrows. The brands I am using are simply makeup that I own. You can use any similar colors you find regardless of the exact brand or color.

Step 1: Start by priming and moisturizing your eyes as you normally would.

Step 2: Using Succubus from the Kat Von D Shade Fight Matte Eyeshadow palette, pat the shade down all over the lid and lower lash line. Blend out with a fluffy brush.

Step 3: Now, use Attitude from the Urban Decay BackTalk Eyeshadow palette. Pat this down all over the lid and outer corner of the lower lash line. Blend out a little with a fluffy brush.

Step 3: Using the same Kat Von D palette, use Ludwin and blend out over the brow bone.

Step 4: Using the same Urban Decay Palette, apply a mixture of Bare and Curve on the inner corner of the eye and the inner lash line.

Step 5: Add black Eyeliner on the lower waterline and apply mascara. I use Wet n Wild eyeliner and Buxom Big Tease mascara.

Step 6: Apply foundation/bb cream as you normally would and then add face powder. I use Yves Rocher BB cream in the shade Light and Revlon Photoready translucent powder.

Step 7: Contour as you normally would (I follow the little guide pictured below). I use Profusion Bronzer and Highlight Chocolate Bar.

Step 8: Brush on highlighter on cheekbones, brow bones, tip of nose and chin crease. I use Kat Von D’s Metal Crush Highlighter palette.

Step 9: Apply lipstick. I am using NYX Liquid Suede cream lipstick in the shade Soft-Spoken.

This makeup look is only the beginning of the endless possible makeup looks you can try out this Valentine's Day! If you don't usually do your makeup then consider stepping out of your comfort zone and trying this out. And if you do then try something completely different, mix up colors, do your contour differently, take a risk!
