Be my Valentine part 1 – pink and purple look for the big V-day

Hi everyone!

The V-day is approaching… Everyone is planning romantic dinners, presents, surprises. Chocolates in heart shapes and teddy bears all over the place!!!

My aims are far less ambitious: just makeup suggestions for your big romantic night 🙂 There seems to be some sort of a common state of trance affecting all beauty bloggers around the world, leading them to believe that pink is the only suitable colour for Valentine’s day. I cannot tell you how many pink looks I saw in the last couple of days floating romantically through my fb feed page. Well, nothing wrong with that…pink is a lovely colour hehe

So, if you really must wear pink, I have an idea for you 🙂 It basically combines pinks and purples. Classic!


My Valentine is trying to run away from me..hmm, perhaps I am not his Valentine hahaha

What I did to achieve this look:

  1. Apply NYX JEP in Milk over your e/s base
  2. Apply Inglot 488 (very pale pink) on the inner 1/3 of the lid
  3. On the outer 2/3 of the lid, use Sugarpill Chromalus in Paperdoll (pretty lavender with sparkles)
  4. Cover Inglot 488 with the Barry M dazzle dust in Candy (bright pink with a pearl finish) to add a bit of shine and help blending with Paperdoll.
  5. To deepen the crease, I used a darker matte purple shade from my Sleek Snapshots palette.
  6. Blend up towards the brow bone with a skin colour eyeshadow, for me that’s Beaches and Cream by MUG.
  7. Wing a liner (if you want, it’s perfectly optional).
  8. Apply more dark purple (outer part) and a bit of Candy (towards the inner corner) on the lower lash line as well.
  9. Glitter it up! I used the tiniest bit of Eye Kandy Sour Grape on the lower lash line, since I had to go out afterwards. If I had done this for an evening look, the glitter would have definitely found its way towards the lid 😉
  10. Don’t forget to put on plenty of mascara (or even falsies for a more dramatic effect) and flutter them eyelashes all night long! Nothing beats the magic of the never-ending eyelashes…
  11. For the lips, I used is “Flirty” by NYC, but you can just grab your own pink favourite.

That was my romantic makeup suggestion…I will try something more sultry for part 2!
