Happy Valentines day!!! Yes everyone, it is February 14th. Or as some of us know it as.... the day before the best candy sales day of the year. I think tomorrow I'll go buy myself a bouquet of flowers for half off haha. Well today has been rather uneventful, I never have very high expectations for Valentines day. Brooks (my boyfriend) was very thoughtful this morning and brought me breakfast in bed :) It was a breakfast burrito, some orange juice and coffee. He knows me all too well. I gobbled it up before I even thought to take a picture to share.
Even though I am not going out for V-day since I work this evening, I decided to share the look I would have done if we were going out.
I decided to go with a soft neutral eye with glowy cheeks and a pretty pink lip.
Too Faced Primed and Poreless primer
Neutrogena Healthy skin liquid foundation in 40/nude
Laura Mercier secret concealer in #3 (for blemishes)
MAC mineralize skinfinish natural in light plus
Maybelline instant age rewind eraser dark circles in 20/ light pale (under eye circles)
bareminerals mineral veil (to set under eyes)
For my cheeks I used:
NARS Orgasm blush
NARS Laguna bronzer
For my eyes I used:
MAC Painterly paint pot (as a base)
Sin and Virgin in the Naked palette
MAC satin taupe
MAC cream color base in Pearl (brow bone & cheek highlight)
MAC eyeliner in smoulder
MAC typographic (pat on top of eyeliner)
Maybelline The Falsies Flared Volum' Express in very black
and I forgot to picture what I fill my eye brow with... (its a glominerals by bareminerals eyeshadow trio in sand stone, I use the darkest brown in the trio) I also added some false lashes, but you don't have to do that.
For my lips I used:
Rimmel London long lasting finish lip pencil in 049/natural
Maybelline lip stick in 20/ pink and proper
Mentha lip tint (from bath and body works) lip gloss in pink shimmer (only in the middle of my lips)
I wanted to go with something simple and classic for my outfit.
I chose a white button up shirt from forever 21
a simple black tank underneath
Skinny jeans from American Eagle
Brown boots with a 2 1/2 inch heel from DSW
My gold Marc by Marc Jacobs watch and a small charm necklace from forever 21
Since it has been snowing lightly on and off today I would probably add a simple black pea coat over top.
I am writing this as I run out the door for work! So I apologize for any errors.
