Valentine's day is approaching faster if you have a plan with your special someone to celebrate this romantic day, I have a beautiful makeup look for you and is only going to take 15-20 minutes, and you'll look flawless, impressive, without overdoing it. This look is suitable for brunch-lunchtime but also, surprising for a date night. For someone who has two kids and always on the run, it took me approximately ten minutes to prepare myself and to put on makeup on a daily basis.
As a busy mother and wife, I don't have the luxury to take one or two hours just to put on my make up, unless I'm going to a wedding or going to the Oscar party (Yeah, in my dreams!). But other than that, ten minutes all I got, and if I spend more than ten minutes, I will be hearing my kids doing a screaming match fighting over the remote control then I've stressed out and before I knew it my make up will be ruin. So yeah, the struggle of the motherhood, but I love every minute of it!
Ok, back to our makeup look for Valentine's day, what I love the most over the look, is the lipstick, the color is pleasing, demure, and also sensual. Just in time for spring season.
Wash and dry your face, put on the Urban Decay B6 Prep spray and let it dry, this product is to hydrate, prep, minimize pore and redness on your face.
Put on your primer on your face and under eye primer.
Apply your concealer under the eyes using your fingertip, apply by patting style and then blend well, and also, cover any flows or marks over your face, but remember not over put it otherwise it will look cakey.
Now, put on the cream powder, why I choose this powder because it acts as a powder and foundation and easy to apply, Use the sponge side to apply as a foundation and use the velvety side to apply for cream makeup as a finishing powder. It will look natural and will stay throughout the night.
Put the bronze and apply on your forehead, cheekbones, under your jaw, side of the nose and blend well. Now, sweep your favorite brush through the powder blush of your choice and tap to remove excess powder. Then, brush along your cheekbones softly and blend it well. Take some highlighter and sweep it to the bridge of your nose and on the upper side of your cheekbones.
For eye shadow, start with the primer for your eyelid
I Use the gorgeous Swamp Queen Palettes from Grav3yard Girl, first I Use Big Baby along the top and bottom lash line. Next,
I use Sippy Sippy from lash line to crease. Blend #SPS and Uncommon to the inner lid.
Use the eyeliner pencil on your top eyeliner and lower eyeliner and blend nicely. And, to make more stand out take your liquid eyeliner and begin applying eyeliner to your upper lash line. Move out towards the outer edge of your lash line.
Curl your eyelashes and put two or more coat of mascara.
Now, sweep your favorite brush through the powder blush of your choice and tap to remove excess powder. Then, brush along your cheekbones softly and blend it well.
These are the products that I use:
