With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s definitely time to think about what look you’re going for…if you haven’t done so already. So, today I thought I would share with you my Valentine Makeup Inspiration…the look I will probably rock on this special day. The first order of business for my Valentine Makeup Inspiration are eyelash extensions. I shared here all about my love for eyelash extensions, as well as caring for your own lashes. So yes, it is safe to say I will be including lashes to my Valentine Makeup look.
For those of you who don’t know (and that would be most of you), I am a serial eye shadow buyer and a serious eye shadow hoarder. I bet you I am purchasing eye shadow probably once a week…whether in-store or online. My name is Candy and I’m a shadowholic! Believe it or not, my favorite eye shadows come from local beauty supply stores. I have some of the more recognized brands, but I almost always use my beauty supply store bought shadows. And for today’s look, this is what I used.
I fairly new to highlighting, contouring, and strobing. I use two different color concealers by NYX…one closer to my skin tone and the other about 3-4 shades lighter. I haven’t really taken much time on contouring. But I just purchased a contouring and strobing kit by Absolute New York and the strobing is just fantastic!!! It makes the concealer/highlights look amazing in photos. I generally use it under the eye, the high cheekbone area, and between the brows. Check out the photos to see what I mean.
Other notables before I end: Benefit POREfessional, NYX Tinted Brow Mascara, Smash Box Photo Finish Lid Primer (I swear by this), Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, Benefit Hello Flawless Sunscreen Makeup (love that this only takes a dab for full coverage), Go Brow Sculpting Pencil (love that this is double ended with the spoolie), and my favorite with the most perfect brush, Maybelline Mega Plush Volum’ Express Mascara (most purchased from Ulta Beauty).
What look are you going for for Valentine’s Day? If you haven’t made up your mind yet on your Valentine’s look, hopefully today I provided a bit of inspiration. And am I the only one who hoards eye shadows? LoLoL Do tell!!!
