Mac Cosmetics – Eye Shadow Pro Pallet Refill Pan(s)
Don’t you just LOVE makeup looks that take all of 10 minutes to do? The obvious answer to that is YES. Being the eye makeup is truly a breeze, I felt compressing this portion into tiny sentences would be of the most benefit to you love bunnies out there! Who wants to spend Valentine’s Day reading a bunch of BLAH, I know I don’t. I’d rather get to the meat of the tutorial and know what’s up! That said, to kick things off I began by defining my brows with Brun eyeshadow by Mac Cosmetics. A light brush over, with slight definition is my favorite brow shape!
Love Letter (crease), Venetian Red (lids, crease), Red Ochre (crease), Primavera (inner corners), Cyprus Umber (outer v)
I truly see the hype of why SO MANY women, and men out there are going gaga for the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Pallet! It does have it’s flaws, don’t get me wrong, however I feel in this instance the pros outweigh the cons. I chose this pallet not only because I love it (so much love, AHH), because I thought many of you would encompass it thus making this look easier to replicate! Beginning with the brush that comes handy with the pallet, I swirled into Love Letter, and brushed it across my lids, and up into my crease with side to side blending motions. For a bit of definition I applied Red Ochre into my crease with Morphe’s M433 Brush— this shade should be more concentrated than Love Letter, and should be be kept DIRECTLY near the eye socket creasing! Speaking of the eye socket creasing, Cyprus Umber was lightly nestled onto the outer v’s of my eye sockets, as well as across my lower lash lines for an eye widening, and smoldering effect. Switching to a denser brush, Morphe’s E22, I swirled into Venetian Red, and brushed the shade across my lids, and a bit into my crease (side to side blends that hit just below my outer v) for an all over reddish undertone, then finally I went into Primavera for an inner corner highlight.
Ciate London – Wonderwand Mascara
NYX Cosmetics – Jumbo Eye Pencil, Black Bean
Huda Beauty – Classic False Eyelashes, Sasha
You cuties know the drill by now– liner, lashes, and boom you’re set! I personally went with Nyx’s Black Bean Jumbo Eye Pencil liner-wise, and softly glided it across my upper lash lines, and towards my waterlines for a soft smokey effect. If you’re daring enough, try popping the intensive black into your crease– it’ll give Cyprus Umber a deeper impact, while forming sensual tones to the overall eye makeup look. The last two steps include mascara and falsies! Falsies are optional, but I feel since it is a day of love, adding a bit of flare wouldn’t hurt one’s fantasies, eh? I chose Ciate’s Wonderland Mascara, with Huda Beauty’s Sasha Falsies, not too dramatic, but still noticeable.
