Everyone seems to be doing posts about Valentine’s Day recently, and, as much as I don’t really support the holiday, I’m not opposed to doing some pretty makeup! Here is a look I created with entirely drugstore products. Hope you enjoy!
I started out with my eyes – laying a white base all over the lid and setting with a cream colour, before adding a light warm brown and a shimmery purple to my crease and under my lashline. I then did a thin black wing, and tightlined to make it all seamless. I curled my lashes, added some mascara to my top lashes, and was done with the eyes.
After lightly filling in my brows with a pencil, I continued on to the face. My aim was to make it nice and natural, with a pore-filling primer, a medium coverage foundation, and a tiny bit of concealer under my eyes. I did not try to highlight, I just corrected my eye bags. I set my face with an illuminating powder, and put some coral blush high up on my apples, to make me look more “cute”. I opted for no bronzer, as to keep with the sweetness of the look. I used a light shade from my eyeshadow palette for a bit of highlight.
Finally, I used a bright pink lipstick and topped it off with a shimmery lipgloss.
I paired this look with a neutral nail.
