Valentine’s Day

Easy Daytime Look for Valentine's Day || Wearable Pink Smoky Eyes|
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-

Easy Daytime Look for Valentine's Day || Wearable Pink Smoky Eyes|

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!

I hope you found this mini-tutorial helpful and easy to follow. Go ahead, re-create this look and don’t forget to share your looks with me on FacebookTwitterInstagram or Snapchat (sayantinee).

So, which one would you like to gift to your special one?
Hi all, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, a special day for all those who are in love. Though I don’t believe that one needs a specific day to express or celebrate love, I don’t even criticize the mood of Valentine’s. It has a certain flavor to it. No matter if you are single or taken, you can enjoy Valentine’s Day in your own way. For those who have a special plan tomorrow and haven’t decided what makeup should be done, here I have a simple, easy and quick makeup-look for you.
My boyfriend and I usually do not go out on Valentine’s Day (we have another special day), but if we ever plan one in future I would like to go for a soft and natural look (you know men, they love bare faces!) with subtle lipstick. That is my kind of a Valentine’s makeup. I have created this look for day time, you can always transform it to a night time glam look just by switching some things up. I’d tell you in the end. Keep on reading.
Products Used-

  • E.L.F. Eye-lid Primer
  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
  • Maybelline Colossal Liner
  • Maybelline Hyper Curl Mascara

  • Elisha Coy Always Nuddy CC Cream
  • Lotus Herbals Ecostay Foundation
  • Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
  • Lakme 9 to 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact
  • Accessorize Bronzing Block- Shade 3

  • LAQA & CO. Fat Lip Pencil in Jammy Bastard

This time, I have started with my eyes before doing my face. Here are the steps to achieve the eye look-
Step 1: Start with filling in with your brows. Use any technique you are comfortable with- pencils, powders or creams. You can’t afford to try new techniques on such an occasion.

Step 2: Apply some eye lid primer. It will help your eye-shadows stay longer and exact.

Step3: Take some dark brown eye-shadow in a fluffy brush/blending brush and apply it right onto the outer corner of your eyes and drag it along the crease. I have used ‘Semi-Sweet’ from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. [P.S.Your crease is where your eyelid folds.]

Step 4: Blend, blend and blend. Blending is the key. The more you blend the softer it looks.

Step 5: After you are satisfied with the blending, take some lighter shimmery shade in a flat shader brush and apply in right on to the middle of your eyelids. I have used a peach-y shade called ‘Marzipan’ from the Chocolate Bar Palette. [P.S.Shimmers help in reflecting light. If you’ve planned a candle-lit dinner, shimmery or metallic eye-shadows are must. It doesn’t have to be truckloads of shimmer, just a little hint would do. Subtle shimmers can be used even for daytime looks.]

Step 6: Apply a highlighting colour, close to your skin tone, on the brow bones. I have used the shade ‘White Chocolate‘ from the Chocolate Bar Palette.

Step 7: With an angled brush, apply the same dark brown shade along your lower lash line.

Step 8: Apply the same highlighting colour on the inner corners of your eyes. It would make them look bigger. 

Step 9: Apply a liquid liner as close to your lash line as possible. You might not go for a full-fledged winged eye-liner but a little flick at the corners would definitely make your bae fall for you once again.

Step 10: Curl your lashes and apply generous coats of mascara. Remember, mascara is the elixir of a neutral look.
Soft & Coral Valentine’s Day Makeup Look| Step by Step Tutorial

For the face, I have just applied foundation and concealer. Applied some coral blush starting from the apple of my cheeks slightly dragging the brush diagonally along the cheek bones. For my lips, I have applied a coral lip tint which gives the look a softer finish. This look is perfect for both day and night time but if you want to go for a more glam look you can transform this look by applying a kohl on the waterline, slightly smudging it and by swapping this lip colour with a red lipstick.

Just as I said earlier, Valentine’s Day is all about you. Being you is most important. Makeup can help you look better but you are what you are inside. That cannot be changed. If you don’t like makeup, be a rebel- rock your distressed jeans and loose tees, ditch the lipstick, be a tomboy. It doesn’t matter until you are yourself. Happy Valentine’s Day.

I hope you liked the look. Do comment and share your views with me. If you recreate this look, do share them with me. Tag me in your photos on Instagram and I’d repost some of your looks. Keep then stay safe and keep smiling.

Hello all! Today I have come up with a Valentine’s Day special eye look which is very simple to achieve and very wearable too. I am a totally no-eyeshadow girl. I mostly apply kajal on my upper and lower lash line and step out just like that. But, it’s Valentine’s Day, so the makeup needs to be special, isn’t it? I chose to create an easy-peasy look for the occasion as you don’t want to spend a lot of time in your eye-makeup. 
** I have done the makeup on my right eye only. I was too lazy that day so couldn’t do makeup on both my eyes. Excuse me for that. 
Now, without wasting time, let’s see the pictures-

~Things I used for this look~

1. MUA Undressed Palette.

2. Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Black.
3. Florelle True Khol Pencil
4. Maybelline The Hyper Curl Volume Express Mascara.

Brushes & Tools-

5. Vega Angular Blender Brush.
6. ELF Essential Eye Crease Brush.
7. Kryolan Art Brush no. 3810.
8. Colorbar Emphaseyes Eye Blending Brush.
9. ELF Studio Small Angle Brush (my favourite for applying gel liners).
10. Vega Eyelash Curler.

~Eye-shadows Used in this Look~

Shade 1
Shade 9
Shade 2
Shade 10

Shade 3

~How to Achieve the Look~

Before I start creating the look, I lightly fill in my brows with a darker matte brown eye-shadow from the palette and shape it with a spooley brush. 

  • Step 1– Prep your eyes by applying a base for your shadow. If you have darker eyelids, you need to cover up the pigmentation by applying a concealer before the base. 

  • Step 2– Take shade 1 from the palette and apply it all over your eyelids up to the brow-bone using a fluffy brush. Here I have used the Colorbar Blending brush. This step is intended to cancel out any discolouration that you are still left with. This step is completely optional. 

  • Step 3– Take shade 2 and pat it over your lids with a flat eye-shader brush all the way to your crease area. I have used the Vega angular brush for the purpose.

  • Step 4– Next take shade 9 from the palette which is a beautiful pinky-brown shadow and apply it over the lid. You may apply it with a damped brush. That will make the colour more gorgeous. But, as I tried to create a soft and subtle look, I didn’t do that. 

  • Step 5– Take some of shade 10 in a crease brush and apply it on to your crease area.

  • Step 6– To blend in the harsh lines, take some of the light brown shadow, i.e. shade 3, in a blending brush and start blending everything in a back and forth motion. 

  • Step 7– Apply some more shade 1 on the brow-bone for highlighting. 

  • Step 8– Take shade 2 again and apply in on the inner-corners of the eyes to brighten them up. Also this creates an illusion of wide eyes. 

  • Step 9– As the eye look was very simple and subtle, I decided to go for a winger liner to add a little oomph to the look 😉 I chose gel liner over liquid liner to maintain the subtlety of the look. If you feel creating a wing is difficult for you then just do it as you like Jthere are no strict rules. 

  • Step 10– Apply kajal on your lower waterline leaving the inner ⅓ of the lower lash line and smudge it out a bit. Work it out on the outer corners and join the upper and lower lash-line with the kajal. Add some of shade 2 on to that unfilled ⅓ part. This will make your eyes look bigger. 

  • Step 11– Apply two coats of mascara to both top and bottom lashes.  

  • Step 12– Last step, dip your powder brush in to your compact/loose powder and brush off the fallouts under your eyes.

Voila! That’s it guys. I hope I have made myself clear while explaining the steps. Now a few words before I sign off. Valentine’s Day is all about love. If you have love for something or someone you will achieve it in anyway. You don’t need makeup to impress anyone. It’s your inner beauty and your self confidence that makes you stand out from the crowd. Make-up is just a way to enhance your beauty a little more.  This particular look has no rules. You don’t need the particular products I’ve used here. You can your anything similar to the products I’ve used. At the end of the day, what really matters is your happiness. I think, that will be enough for your loved ones.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Those who are single, you don’t need to worry. You can also go for this look too. You don’t need any reason to look beautiful, right?

P.S.– I was always hesitant of posting eye-looks. I wasn’t sure of my ability to bring out a new look myself. But, I have got a grip on that and finally decided to share a look with you all. It’s my first time posting eye makeup looks. Also, my first ever eye makeup tutorial. I know there must be some flaws. I would like to get suggestions from you guys. Good night lovelies

P.P.S.- Excuse my eyebrows :p
Hello all! Hope you’ll are doing well. So, are you done with your Valentine’s Day planning? Have you decided what to wear on that special day?
