Happy Friday! So glad, it’s the weekend. 🙂 Anyway, I did a makeup look awhile back that I decided would work great as a look for Valentine’s Day. Feel free to recreate this fun and sparkly look.
Recreate this look:
Eyes: First off, I started with a neutral brown color in e.l.f’s brightening quad eyeshadow ($1), all over the lid. Second, I used Profusion’s Absolute Eyes Palette and used the dusty rose color at the corner of my eyes with e.l.f’s contouring brush. Next, I used NYX‘s Primal eyeshadow in Hot Pink for $5 (a steal!) Again, I used a contouring brush and swept the hot pink shadow above my crease, I also took this color and lined my lower lashes with a damp angled brush. Make sure to blend the hot pink in the crease with an eyeshadow brush, to blend out the color. Finally, I used a gel liner and winged out my eyeliner! *Tip: I like to use an angled brush to apply gel eyeliner. Oh and don’t forget to curl your lashes and use your favorite mascara.
Face: First, I primed my face with NYC‘s Perfecting Primer (I like that it has a shimmer to it). I found it at Walmart for just under $4.
I’m not a fan of heavy foundation so I opted for a BB Cream. I used Covergirl’s Tinted Moisturizer in fair to light. I also sometimes wear concealer, chose your favorite one. I personally like e.l.f.’s Cover Everything concealer. Don’t forget to powder your face with a big fluffy brush, I used e.l.f.’s flawless face powder in Ivory. Next, I used a pink blush, I chose what I had which is Mary Kay’s duo cheek color in Juicy Guava. *Tip: I like to use the neutral shade as a highlighter above my blush, under my nose, on the chin, and by the hairline.
Lips: For the lips, I used products from Sally’s Beauty Supply. The quality of these products wasn’t the best, but it was some of the makeup I had left over from my Jem and the Holograms look from Halloween.
First, I used Beautique’s Jumbo Lip Crayon in Shocking all over my lips. Next, I put on Sally girl mini mood lipstick in Magic Pink. Finally, I put on Sally Girl’s Sparkle Effects loose glitter in Princess Pink all over my lips with my finger.
There you have it, a fun and flirty Retro Inspired Valentine’s Day makeup look! Let me know if you recreate this look and tag me on my social media with the hashtag #retromodern so I can see your look. 🙂
