Hello ladies! Happy hump day. Here’s a look I did for Valentine’s day. When I think of Valentine’s day, soft and romantic look comes to mind. I don’t know what this makes me (special? confused? LOL), but my look here is anything but soft. It is a very dramatic purple smoky eye with nude lips. I still don’t know if I like this look or not. Thoughts?
Get the Look
Using a flat synthetic brush, use the dark brown as a colour base all over the lid. Using a fluffy blending brush like the MAC 217, blend out the colour using espresso in and slightly above the crease. Using a fluffy eye shader brush, pat in the violet all over the lid. Blend out the colour using, well, the blending brush. Line the waterline and lower lashline with a waterproof violet pencil. Put on your best mascara, or big false lashes if you dare.
Using a blush brush, apply a bronzy blush (or a bronzer) as you would contour your cheeks. Swipe on a peachy nude lipstick, and you’re done.

Speaking of Valentine’s Day…
I fed my muffin top with lots of Ferrero Rocher from BF. It was good times! Now I have to work it off by getting some ass-kicking from Jillian. *sighs*
Did you do anything for Valentine’s Day, or the Lunar New Year? Is anyone else glued to the Olympics on TV? I seriously want to try snowboard cross sometime in the future.
