Hello pretties! You know. I know. That Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Whether this day is a celebration for you and your lover or you're part of the single ladies community, it is really just another day on the calender. If you're going on a date with your man, this makeup look is perfect for you. Even if you don't have a date, this makeup look is still very pretty to wear to hang out with your girlfriends. The colours I used for this look screamed romantic to me. It's soft, it's pretty. It'll make your eyes pop. So.. let's not keep your man waiting [if you have one], let's begin!

A peachy, pink blush will really compliment your eyes!
I used the Estee Lauder Signature Eyeshadow Quad in Berry Quartz. If you don't own this quad, don't fret. Any similar eyeshadow colors will give you the same results.
1. I started using a pale pink color all over my lids.
2. Then for the ball of my eyelids, I used a more rosy pink color.
3. As for the crease, I used the deep plum color. Start by applying this on the edge of your eyes. Create a 'V' shape. Then just blend, blend, blend! To give you a softer look. I went back and apply the second color again, just to make the eyes look more vibrant.
For the inner corners of your eyes, apply a champagne beige color. Really drag it out to really make your eyes 'POP'. This will make your eyes look awake and bigger.
Now, proceed with applying your eyeliner and apply your favorite mascara. I also used Ardell's Natural Lashes to give my lashes more length and volume and also give it that flirty look. I would recommend using more natural falsies rather than those dramatic Katy Perry's ones.
Finally for the lips, I went with a balm stain in a wearable red color. Using a balm stain is great, so you can smooch all night and still have the color on your lips. No evidence.
There you have it ladies. Whether you'll be going out with your boothang, having a girls night or a party for one, I hope you will have a Happy Valentine's Day or Single Awareness Day! Don't use this a day as an excuse to go all out and spoil your loved ones. Tell your loved ones how much you love and cherish them everyday.
