Hey my lovelies!!!!! Today I am doing a collaboration with PaigeAlicia! She is an amazing blogger, on her blog you will find a highend Valentine’s Day Look. Feel free to go check it out and tell her that I sent you! You can also go follow her on Twitter: @paigealicia1997. If you have just happened to find yourself on my blog and haven’t yet followed, you should! You don’t want to miss out on all of the fun stuff we talk about over here. So before this is too long, let’s jump in!
Priming the face I went with the NYX Angel Veil skin perfecting primer. This is an amazing primer and I picked up all of these products from my local drug store. Foundation I took this amazing Wet n Wild Coverall cream foundation. This stuff means it when it says coverall. I still can’t believe I only paid 2$ for this bad boy! For concealer I went in with two different brands, I started with the instant age rewind and places the master concealer over top for a better coverage.
To set my face I took my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Poweder! I use this everyday that I wear makeup! I can’t stay away from it.
Contour I went in with this middle shade at the bottom and went to town. I went all out and really contoured, this is the NYX contour kit. Usually I don’t do this step often but I feel that it is Nessecary for an awesome special date like Valentine’s Day.
To give the cheeks a little color I took this blush from ELF and just lightly added this in above my contour and a little on the apples of the cheeks. Make sure to go over everything with your powder brush to blend and to make sure you don’t have any harsh lines. Blending is very important with any makeup look.
Before I highlight I like to put on my brows, this is a very affordable brow kit from Ardell. I used the darkest shade in this little quad. The little stick is a wax, make sure to apply that before the powder. This just keeps the hairs from having a mind of their own.
This highlight was recommended by a good friend of mine, you know who you are. I absolutely love this guy and it only cost me $6. Great pay off, especially if you get your brush just a little bit wet. Highlight where ever you feel the need. I always go crazy with this stuff! I like to hit above my brow, tops of my cheek bones, cuspids bow and down the bridge of my nose. If that’s too much just start out easy, no pressure!
For eyes I just took a little bit of the same contour color and placed it in my crease just to give my eyes a little bit of definition, then my favorite part of the whole look, the wing liner! Make sure that wing is sharp enough to stab somebody! We have to look super fly so I went a little more dramatic with my wing than I usually do. This is a NYX liquid liner, it works like a dream! After that I applied a little bit of mascara to prep my eyes for false lashes.
Falsies, no other, Ardell Demi 120. I mean, need I say more?
For the star of this show, Red Revolution! This is the gorgeous, red, creamy, amazing lipstick! This was about $5 and is worth every penny. Great color pay off and very long lasting!
This finishes the look and with the perfect outfit you are all ready for your Valentine’s Date! Make sure to carry the lipstick in your cute clutch for later touch ups!
