Since most people will be heading out right after work and don’t have hours to spend getting ready, I chose two quick ways to vamp up your everyday makeup for your Valentine’s Day plans. The first is a sweet look with winged eyeliner in black added to the top lid and a bold pink or red lip color. The second look is more sexy, with a neutral color smokey eye, bronzer and a nude lip gloss. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do something a little different with your makeup and glam up a bit. Whether you are heading out with your girlfriends or have a romantic date with your guy, either of these looks would work!
If you’re also still wondering what to wear for Valentine’s Day, Shopbop is currently having a sale with tons of great date dresses. A few of my favorite’s from the sale are this, this, this, this and this!
I have to admit that I’m somewhat of a lipstick-aholic. Whether it’s a bright shade of red or a subtle pink, I think everyone looks better (and more lively) with a little color on their lips. I know a lot of women are hesitant to wear lipstick because they don’t want to feel overdone, especially for an “everyday look”. I have found that the key to wearing lipstick during the day is to keep everything else very minimal. I keep my eye makeup very simple with just a few swipes of mascara and add a little bit of highlighter under my eyes and on my cheekbones. I’m always playing around with different shades of lipstick, but the ones above are definitely my top colors I keep going back to. I also color matched each shade of lipstick in Photoshop so I could show you guys a more accurate shade of each color.

I finally got a video tutorial up after months (almost a whole year!) of not doing any. I really have been meaning to get one up for quite some time and am hoping to do them more frequently. I have been doing these ‘vintage inspired curls’ since I had them done for our wedding. It’s a little different than the way I had been curling my hair before and the results are more romantic and old hollywood glamour-esque. My red lipstick at the end is Giorgio Armani in “Laque De Chine” and you can get it here. I also have the lipstick version and it’s one of my favorites.
Now, my question for you is…what tutorials would you like to see next? XO
