Lillee Jean 2017 Valentine’s Day Dark Glittery Red & Pink Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

Happy Friday my loves! Despite popular belief that Friday the 13th is a terrible day, it simply can’t be since I have in store for you cuties a Valentine’s Day makeup look. With notes of deep red, and champagne pink, this is sure to give ya’ all the va-va-voom without looking too harsh (bright red lips, in example, against the deep red glitter would be harsh)!

Time to complete this tutorial: 28 Minutes (professionals/myself)

Hopefully, the list above doesn’t overwhelm you love bunnies, I tried to make the eye makeup concept as simple as possible, because I KNOW how difficult it can be for some to manage a completely dramatic look under pressure! Anyhow, right after sprucing up my eyebrows with Mac’s Brun eyeshadow, I moved along to the eye makeup by swirling into Tempting from the Too Faced Sweet Peach Pallet. From the base of my upper lash lines, up, I dusted the deep shade across my eyes as an all-over color shade. To make it seem as though I used MORE than one color, I started off light with Morphe’s E22 Pointed Blender Brush, then I got increasingly deeper pigment-wise by blending more densely and closer to my inner v with Morphe’s M433 Brush. Keep in mind when blending across the lids, without having to worry about “concentrated” blends, it makes things a LOT easier, hence this concept shouldn’t be too hard to grasp! Just before dusting excess product across my lower lash lines, I popped ‘Peach Pit‘ onto my lids, followed by Pink Champagne by Anastasia Beverly Hills popped right onto the inner corners of my eyes for an eye-widening, and softer effect. As far as the glitter goes, I find it easier to apply liner, falsies, and all that good stuff FIRST, before application, just because the lashes catch fall-out, and make it easier to clean things up! Speaking of eyeliner, I played up on Mac’s Creme Liner by smoldering the deep black across my upper lash lines, and especially on my lower lash lines/waterlines with heavy side-to-side smudges by using Mac’s 242 Brush for optimal control. Do be careful about how far you blend, to some the panda effect isn’t pleasing! Speeding things along, I coated my natural lashes with Ciate’s Wonderland Mascara, then I applied Sasha falsies by Huda Beauty since these are dramatic, but still wearable in a sense. Now for the glitter! I dipped my Sephora #18 brush into clean water, patted it into Bh Cosmetics’s Glitter Collection container in Deep Red, and patted the glitz across my lids with firm and disbursed blends until I achieved a vibrant glittering finish! Don’t be afraid to really get in there, the more glitter, the better. If you notice Pink Champagne getting less vibrant, pop ‘White Peach‘ from the Sweet Peach Pallet right on-top you’ll notice the shadow remains flashy, and you’ll notice it helps with clean up! I hope you cuties enjoyed it, stay tuned for my Valentine’s Day tutorials, XOXO :).
