Easy Valentine's Make-Up!

Just as the title implies, I'll be showing you how to do a really simple and pink beginner's Valentine's make-up! This is the transformation:


Keep reading if you'd like to see how to do it :3  


Step 1: Start off by applying foundation & concealer. Since I have dry skin, I'll be using this tinted moisturizer from Sephora in place of foundation. I'm also using Revlon's Age Defying Moisturizing Concealer.


Already my skin is looking better, right?

Step 2: Now, apply a base for your eyeshadow. Eyeshadows last twice as long and are twice as vibrant when you apply a base. Here's the eyeshadows I'm going to use. We want a hot pink, a lighter pink, and white! I got this cheap eyeshadow palette from Claire's.


Taking a hot pink (1), apply this to the outer half of your lid. Taking a white (not shown), apply this to the inner half and browbone. Using a fluffy brush, apply a lighter pink above your crease and on your lower lashline. I mixed 2 and 3 together to get a light pink. Blend well!


Step 4: Carefully apply a black liquid eyeliner on your top lid. If you want a softer and less dramatic look, use a pencil liner. Give it a little flirty wing! ;3


Here you can see what a difference eyeliner can make.
A tip: The thinner your liner, the longer your eyelashes look!


Step 5: With a pencil or crayon liner, line your outer lashline about halfway to your eye. Then, apply the liner to the inner waterline on the inner half of your eye.


Once the two are lined, connect them together and smudge a little!


Step 6: Apply lengthening mascara to your lower lashes. For this look, we don't want a ton of volume, just a ton of length. I used Maybelline's Illegal Lenght Mascara. Also, apply your falsies now. Use ones with extreme length!


Here's the difference falsies make!


All together:


Step 7: Does the look seem a little unbalanced? It's because we didn't fill in our brows yet. Strong brows frame your eyes and balance out their dramatic make-up. Here you can see what I mean.

Step 8: Almost done! To conture my nose, I apply a line of brown eyeshadow along the sides of my nose and blend with my finger.


Step 8: Apply a pink blush and a light powder! Keep lips nude, so that your whole face isn't pink. Or, you could have pink lips, but skip the blush! It's all about balance.


Now you're done! Apply circle lenses for extra-big eyes ^__^
