Drugstore Valentine’s Day Look 💕

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share this look I created yesterday with you. I knew I wanted to do pink and bold, but I didn’t know I would go that bold! Nonetheless, I love it. Pink is one of my absolute favourite colours, every shade of it. So that’s what I tried to do was create a look using many different shades of pink, while still looking well put together and wearable.

I initially was going to do a cut crease but decided it was a bit too intense so instead, I did a half cut crease, and just gently blended the shadows out to diffuse the intensity. I incorporated a bit of gold into the crease just to add an extra dimension of colour to the look.

On my lips I tried a bit of a ‘lip contour’, using a light pink to line my lips and fill in most of them. I then used a liner slightly darker than my natural lip colour to line just the inner corners of my lips, the bottom corners and very bottom of my lip. This was my first attempt at this and I think it turned out quite good!

I had a lot of fun creating this look because it’s very out-there (even for me) and it was empowering to step out of my comfort zone!

What I used on my Eyes were:

Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette

NYX On the Go palette and Primer (for cut crease as well)

Covergirl Total Tease Mascara

E.l.f Baked Highlighter in Moolight Pearls (inner corner and cut crease)

On my skin:

I did my usual foundation routine with Nars Sheer glow, Match Perfection Concealer and E.l.f setting powder and E.l.f ‘Moonlight Pearls’ highlight.

(I figure I won’t bore you with my very repetitive foundation and brow routine :p )

On my lips:

I used the Lóreal Colour Riche Lip liner in ‘All About Pink’ to fill in my lips.

Annabelle Lip liner in ‘Demure’ to ‘contour’ my lips. 👄 (like I said before I’m not a professional at all, this was just a little makeup experiment)

A happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! I know it’s a silly Hallmark holiday but any excuse to have a little fun I’ll take it 😊 Hope you enjoyed this look!

What are you guys up to this V-day? Spending it with an SO? Having a little self love day? Or completely ignoring it because it really is just like any other day? 😛

Thanks for stopping by!
