Hello guys, as we all know Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Like every year
, I am here again with another easy makeup look for Valentine’s Day. When it comes to makeup I prefer soft and subtle look instead of anything heavy or dramatic. Be it daytime or nighttime, I prefer minimal makeup. Even my boyfriend loves to see me with minimum makeup. So, I thought of doing something that is soft yet glamorous, very apt if you have planned a daytime date with your beau. This look is also great for both day and night if you love non-glamorous, fresh and neutral makeup. I have created this look keeping the beginners in mind. Let’s begin-
Lotus Herbals Ecostay Nourishing Foundation (Used in this look)
Mememe Flawless Concealer
Maybelline White Superfresh Compact
L’Oreal True Match Blush in Rosy Cheeks (Used in this look)
Sleek Face Contour Kit
ELF Eyelid Primer
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette (Salted Caramel, Marzipan, White Chocolate)
BH Cosmetics Day & Night Palette (Deep matte brown shade, Pale peachy pink shade)
Lakme Eyeconic Kajal- Brown
Lancome Hypnose Mascara
Maybelline Fashionbrow Duo Shaper in Grey
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm- Sultry
Wearable Pink Smoky Eyes
I started off with applying foundation to my face just to make my skin look even-toned. Then just jumped straight on to my eye makeup before concealer. I applied an eyelid primer first so that my eyeshadows last longer. Then I set the primer with some compact powder. You can apply any light coloured eyeshadow instead of the compact powder.
Next, I applied a warm tone brown shade (Salted Caramel) from my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This shade acted as a transition colour. Then I took a deep brown shade from my BH Cosmetics Day & Night Palette to a crease brush and placed it on the outer corner of my eyes. I blended out the deep brown eyeshadow with a circular motion with the same crease brush leaving the inner part of the eyes bare. I made sure to apply most of the product to the outer corner and then I dragged whatever left on the brush to the inner portions of my eyes. It helped in defining the eyes more. Then I applied a pale peachy pink shade to the inner parts of the eyes with a flat eyeshadow brush in a patting motion. If you have darker eyelids then you can use dampen eyeshadow brush to apply your pale, light shade eyeshadow. A damp brush will ensure good colour payoff. I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes with a shimmery pink shade called Marzipan from my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette and also highlighted my browbone areas with a shimmery champagne shade called White Chocolate from the same palette.
Next, I lined my upper lashline with a brown kohl pencil and smudged it out using an angular brush. I dragged the line with a brush in a manner that it creates a small, diffused wing at the end. This diffused wing made the look very sultry and created a pseudo-smoky effect without going for a full-fledged smoky eye look. I finished my eye makeup with curling my lashes and applying generous coats of volumizing mascara to my lashed to make them stand out. You can also apply false lashes but I skipped it as I wanted this look to be really natural and wearable.
Finally, I applied concealer to hide my dark circles and other imperfections. Then I set everything with the same compact powder. Lastly, I contoured and highlighted my features with the Sleek Face Contour Palette and applied a matte lip colour.
As I always say, you don’t need to apply makeup to present yourself to your love. Be yourself, even if it do not require a perfect dress or a flawless makeup. Being confident is most important. Love is all about accepting each other with all the flaws, isn’t it? Happy Valentine’s Day!
