First, start by applying your favorite foundation with a damp makeup sponge. I chose to use a long lasting finish foundation by Rimmel. This is a full coverage foundation that can last up to 25 hours. Although this is a full coverage foundation it doesn’t feel like you are wearing a mask it is very light and gives your skin a more even tone.
Then set your foundation with a translucent finishing powder like Hard Candy’s Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder which can only be found in Walmart stores. Once you have set your foundation, contour and highlight using Wet N Wild Coloricon Contouring Palette in Caramel Toffee under your cheekbones, the sides of the face, and along the sides of the nose. Apply your favorite pink toned blush to your cheekbones.
Curl your lashes and prep the eyelid for shadow using an eyeshadow primer like L’oreal Decrease. With a fluffy shadow brush apply the light shade from the Wet N Wild Contour Palette all over the lid. With another fluffy eyeshadow brush apply the darkest shade from the same contour palette into the crease. With the same fluffy eyeshadow brush apply the 3 pink shade from the L’oreal Palette into the crease, buffing in a windshield wiper motion. With a small shadow brush, apply the second to the last shade in the L’oreal palette to the outer half of the upper lid. Wipe off the shadow brush onto a clean tissue and use it to apply the 4 to the last light pink shade to the inner corner of the lid sweeping it into the purple shade we just applies. With the same small shadow brush also apply the darkest shade in the L’oreal palette to the outer fourth of the lid. With a smaller eyeshadow brush apply the second to the last shade in the L’oreal palette to the lower lashline. Use the fluffy eyeshadow brush that we used in our crease to buff out the line so that it isn’t so harsh. With the same small brush take a little bit of the darkest shade and add it to the outer fourth of the lower lash line.
Apply black eyeliner to the upper lash line only. Also fill in brows if necessary. With a stiff eyeshadow brush, take the darkest shade from the L’oreal palette and smoke out the eye liner just a bit. With a fluffy eyeshadow brush take the first shade from the palette and apply it to the brow bone.
This entire Valentine’s Day look is centered around the eyes. With such a strong eye look we need bold lashes. Flower is a brand created by Drew Barrymore. She has been quoted as saying:
“Beauty should be attainable and bring women empowerment. It’s about you and not someone else.” – Drew Barrymore
I couldn’t agree more. The Flower brand of cosmetics can only be found in Walmart stores. For our Date Night look for Valentine’s Day I picked up the 3-in-1 mascara from Flower at my local Walmart store. This mascara is great right out of the packaging. It’s not too wet or dry. What makes it unique is that the brush can change with just a twist at the end of the wand to make the mascara either lengthen, curl, or thicken your lashes. I personally love the volumizing aspect of this mascara. Instead of basic black, I opted for a brown black formula to make my blue eyes stand out more. Flower doesn’t just make mascara, they offer everything from foundation to lipsticks.
After our eyes are done it is on to completely the look with a little lipstick. To make our lipstick last through the night I opted for a long lasting liquid lipstick by Revlon in the gorgeous shade Ultimate Orchid. As my lip liner I used a ELF matte Lip Color in Tea Rose. This lipstick combination dries to a matte finish and I think it compliments our eye makeup look perfectly. If the liquid lipstick is too sticky for your liking just apply a little lip balm over top and you are good to go!
