Makeup Wars ~ My Valentine’s Day Look

This week for Makeup Wars we are sharing our Valentine’s Day looks. I doubt I’ll actually be going out for Valentine’s Day, old married life for ya, but I thought I would approach this by going for a softer, more romantic look than I usually wear. I was inspired to create a look of all soft pastel pinks and purples to achieve an innocent “girly” look. I paired it with a gently, glossy pink lip which in the pictures made me look pretty washed out. In reality it looked a little more balanced. I decided to make two very minor, easy, and quick updates to the look to switch it up a little and make the look a little more feisty. Let’s say the date is going well. 😉 I quick swipe of MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes liner in 6L in the waterline to replace the white and a bright pop of colour on the lips courtesy of the amazing Maybelline VIVID Colourburst lipstick in Fuchsia Flash.
