Valentine’s day is not the biggest deal for J and I, we usually spend a quiet evening at home together. J usually cooks dinner, I always want seafood of some sort. We try to watch a movie or catch up on our T.V. shows. So I have been having so much fun with my tutorials, I thought I might share my date night make up. J and I don’t get to have many date nights with our budget, so when we do it is super special, even if we splurge on a nice dinner at home.
I always start with a clean, dry, and moisturized face. And you can find my everyday make up tutorial here, we are just adding to that. For this look I am going heavier on the eye make up and bolder on the lip. For the beginning steps you can check out my everyday make up tutorial.
|Applying eye shadow|
When I do a night look I tend to wear a bit more eye make up. I live for Mac Shroom, I use it all over my lid, the inner corner of my eyes, and at my brow bone. I then use Retro liner (Bare Minerals I can’t find it anymore) with an angled liner brush and I heavily apply it. I then finish my eyes with mascara, I’m currently using Benefit Roller Lash. I am enjoying it so far. But I still don’t love it as much as Diorshow.
|Tools of the trade|
For my make up look I decided to pair it with my favourite J. Crew sweater and my Ann Taylor LOFT leather skirt. No look is complete without shoes. And I went with my Ivanka Trump pumps. This gold clutch is amazing. I got it from a flea market a few years ago. I hardly use it because of how small it is. Regardless it’s darling.
Like I mentioned Valentine’s Day is one of those days that does not have that much bearing in my day to day. I do how ever enjoy any excuse to dress up and have a great time with J. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! And one that note, it’s time to end.
All for now,
