Hi muffins! Valentines Day is in 11 days! It’s crazy how fast the time flies; I feel like it was just NYE yesterday. This is the first Valentines Day since the 6th grade that I am single and don’t have a valentine. I can’t believe it. My first valentines day single?! Since the 6th grade?! That is just insane! Don’t worry, I didn’t have 1 boyfriend since 6th grade…that would be absurd. But anyways, to be honest, I am so happy. I actually feel confident and happy without a guy by my side..and now I won’t have to put the usual 2-5 lbs of valentines weight on this year, so things are looking up! As I stated in my post “Versatile Blogger and Shine On Awards” I love chocolate and I have no self control if it is in front of me, so fortunately I won’t have boxes of it given to me. On V-day I am getting my nails done by my super amazing manicurist who I have been going to since I was 6 or 7 years old, so that is exciting. I will also spend my time blogging and watching scary movies, because I doubt I’ll be in the mood to watch any romance films! Also, scary movies are my favorite..and what could be better than watching scary movies on Valentines Day?! (Yes, I am twisted lol) But anyhow, I am sure most of you have something special planned, so I would love to show you some makeup ideas!! This look is more of a dramatic makeup. I will also be doing another V-day look later this week, one that is more subtle. If your boyfriend/significant other tells you “I think you look best without makeup” then definitely don’t go for a dramatic look like this! It was a lot of fun to create though, and much different than my typical makeup. I don’t usually wear bright colors, especially not pink, so this was great and outside of the box for me. I hope you enjoy!
To Achieve This Dramatic Valentines Day Look:
Face- I first applied Revlon Age Defying Wrinkle Remedy Line Filler to my smile lines and frown lines between my eyebrows (I received this product from my New Beauty TestTube). I then applied Dior Glow Maximizer Light Boosting Primer, followed by my foundation, Studio Skin Oil Free in 2.1 in light beige from Smashbox. I used Brow Bar To Go by Whitening Lightening to contour cheeks and nose, and I also used this on my eyebrows. I used Albatross from Nars as a highlighter above cheeks, and for an extra shimmer I added Elf Body Shimmer Mystic Moonlight. I then applied my blush, New Order by Nars.
Eyes- First I applied my Urban Decay Primer Potion to my eyelids. I then applied Albatross from Nars to my brow bone. Following that, I applied Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow by Stila in Metallic Dusty Rose to the inner corner of my eyes. I then dipped my brush in liquid to apply my ElektroCute Neon Pigment by Sugarpill in Love Buzz to my entire eye (just not the inner corner). I applied just a hint of Vibrant Grape by M.A.C. Cosmetics to my crease and outer corner of my eye. I then applied a drop of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics glitter in Magenta to the outer corner of my eye. I applied my Inglot Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in 77 (black) to my upper lash line. I applied 1 Siam Red Strass from Make Up For Ever to the outer corner of both eyes. I used Mally Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in Sailor to both my upper and bottom waterline. I curled my lashes with my Billy B Beauty’s Eyelash Curler and applied Tarte MultiplEYE-prime followed by Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara by Tarte!
So, that was my technique for my dramatic Valentines Day look! I also wanted to mention something I came across while reading my magazines. I was reading January 27, 2014 edition of Life & Style Magazine, and I came across a small article, “Beauty Breakthrough: Products That Lure Men!”. It features products from a website, Booty Parlor, that are infused with pheromones to “become a man magnet”. I thought that since Valentines Day is coming up, it would be the perfect opportunity to test out a new product. I purchased one of the perfumes (it smells so good), body glitters (mine smells and tastes like marshmallows..yummu), and lip gloss (the Kissaholic gloss mentioned above which smells like peppermint). I am going to be honest, I am not sure if it works and actually makes you a “guy magnet”. I had one of my friends wear the perfume and lip gloss when she saw her boyfriend, so I need to get an update from her to see if it made him more “attracted” to her or if there was no difference. I will have a few friends test it out and I will get back to you all with an update!! However, there is no reason not to give it a try whether it works or not! The products smell and taste good, so that is just awesome. The website also sells edible massage oils, so if you want to try something fun and surprise your special someone with a treat, take a look and give it a try! Hope you all enjoyed this post, XO ❤
