Makeup Wars Valentines Day Look Makeup Wars: Valentines Day Look

In this edition of “Makeup Wars” we are talking about our Valentine’s Day looks. In my case, I associate Valentine’s Day with Pink and tend to stick with that color family, but keep my eyes pretty simple since Pink around my eyes ends up making me look like I have another case of “Pink Eye”, so, no good on me.

Check out what I would use:

  • Three Custom Color “The Sweetest Thing” Palette – I used the deceptively sheer “Icing on the Cupcake” eyeshadow as a wash on my lid, as it reflects different colors depending on how the light hits it. I use the “Lollipop Lip & Cheek Stain” for a bit of color on my cheeks.
  • mark Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon in “Peony” – This lip pencil is a bit more purple & glossier dupe of my beloved NARS 413 BLKR Pencil, which got stolen last year. With the mark pencil only $11, less than half of the NARS pencil, I’m not in a super rush to replace it when I have this fab pencil stepping up.
  • Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream – this BB works like a great tinted moisturizer for me, giving me light coverage, but still knocking down some of my redness.
  • Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender – Pretty sure I have beat you over the head with my love for this finisher. No questions.
  • L’Oreal HiP high intensity pigments™ Color Chrome Eyeliner in “Violet Volt” – get a bit of metallic shine with this vivid purple, playing off the multi-color reflecting eyeshadow. And it lasts all day on me.
  • Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer – I use this double duty product to cover up dark circles under my eyes and then I use it above my brows to highlight my upper face to distract from what the concealer can hide.
  • Covergirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara – This latest LashBlast version lets me layer on the mascara and not make me have to separate everything out at the end, because it’s already done. And the flat side of the brush makes it easy for me to get my bottom lashes, which I would do for a night out. I don’t do them for my day to day look.
  • Mally Beauty 24/7 Brow Express – this dual-ended wand lets me shape my brows up with the pencil end and then set them in place with the powder coated sponge on the other end. They don’t move when they are done.
  • butter London Nail Lacquer in “La Moss” – The one way I *will* vamp it up for Valentine’s Day is on my nail and this deep, dark red is just great for that.
  • So, this is what I would use. What do you do for your Valentine’s Day look? Do you vamp it up? Go all sweet and romantic? Or is it just another Thursday to you?

      Shoot! I totally forgot about that 3CC palette–it’s perfect for this look. Mally face defender and Covergirl Clump Crusher are HG’s for me too!

      I used the Mally Pore Defender too but I only concentrated my review on eyes, cheeks, lips. I’m afraid I’ll drive people away with my raves for it.

    • Pammy Blogs Beauty

      One of these days I need to try the Mally Poreless face defender! I hear so many great things about this product!

    • CarleenPruessCoulter
