Happy Valentine's Day, my little cherubs! I have one quick look up for you inspired by those fun conversation hearts. It's a bit bright and not your typical "date night" type of look but I think that's why I like it so much!

Starting out the look by moisturizing and then priming my face with my fave primer, Benefit The Porefessional. Foundation is L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation in Porcelain/Light Ivory 1-2-3 applied with a damp Beauty Blender. Bronzer is of course Laguna from the NARS x Guy Bourdin One Night Stand Blush Palette (LOVE!) and blush is Mistinguette from the same palette. Lips are OCC Lip Tars Memento mixed with Anime with an IT Cosmetics YLBB Lip Stain in Pretty In Pink.

For the eyes: I started off with a nice white base all over the lid using NYX Jumbo Crayon in Milk. I then applied Passion Fruit from the Sigma Beauty Creme de Couture Palette (LOVE this for Valentine's Day!) into the crease to give some depth. Then I took Apricot Flower and applied that to just the middle of my lid and on the bottom lash line. Lastly, I took Redberry Rose and applied that to my inner and outer eyelid and blended so they faded together nicely. I then lined my top with the Eddie Funkhouser Ultra Definition Eye Lining Stylus and flicked it out for a cat eye effect. I lined my lower lash line with Starlet Intense Eyeliner in Black which is like, the smoothest eye pencil ever.

(Still working on a new background. It's hard when the livingroom gives the best light #thestruggle)

Points if you can guess the brand of wine from that box! I swear, it's used to hold our firewood! :)
