get the look: V-Day Monochromatic Pink

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Looking for the perfect Valentine's Day makeup look? Look no further! This how to shows you how to rock a subtle smoky, yet flirty look for valentines day! Even cooler- It's monochromatic, so we're using shades of pink on eyes, lip and skin! Also, we use our multi-purpose HD Blush on cheeks AND lips! Here's how:

Step 1: Using our Baked Eyeshadow in 'Burnt Plum', and an Essentials Blending Brush, shade the eyelid and blend through the crease.

Step 2: Grab our Mineral Eyeshadow in 'Sweet' and apply it over the 'Burnt Plum' on the inner corners and center of the lid for dimension.

Step 3: Line the eyes with our Flat Eyeliner Brush and Cream Eyeliner in 'Black' and smudge for a sultry effect.

Step 4: Apply our Defining Mascara for flirty lashes.

Step 5: Using our HD Blush in 'Superstar' and a Small Stipple Brush, brush color onto the cheeks and blend back into the hairline.

Step 6: Grab our Radiance Enhancer in 'Spotlight' and highlight the tops of the cheekbones. Blend in the highlighter using your fingers or the same Stipple Brush.

Step 7: Get more use out of your HD Blush! Apply it to the lips with a Small Smudge Brush for a pop of color.

Step 8: Finish off the look with a swipe of our Hypershine Gloss in 'Joy' and toss it in your bag for on-the-go touch ups!

How are YOU going to do your makeup for Valentines Day?

I think the eyes with the lips is a little much...but to each their own! Happy V-Day! (Or as I like to call it My Dad's Birthday xD)

This is too cute! Always looking for holiday looks that aren't TOO literal. Also, I'll have to amp up the festivities because I'll be celebrating Valentine's Day (also my 3 yr anniversary) 3000 miles away from my boyfriend. :(

I love pinks on me and in this guide. I love the dimension with the mineral eyeshadow "Sweet", one I don't have. Happy Valentines indeed!

I'm wearing a gold eyeshadow with dark brown in the crease with pink lips-my favorite combination. The husband and I haven't decided what we're doing for Valentine's Day-I did get him a gift already =)

This look is very pretty. For Valentines, my makeup will be very minimal. I don't want it to get in the way of my dinner, dessert and drinks - LOL!

I like it. I'm probably just gonna do my everyday makeup: winged liner, big lashes, glowy cheeks and a red or plummy lip!
