FOTD: Valentine's Day

Well, it's not Valentine's Day yet and it's probably not something I'm going to be wearing on the day, given that the Valentine's weekend I'll be snowboarding in Tahoe with smudges of mascara under my eyes and in desperate need of a lipbalm, BUT... This is something I'd like to be wearing and it might give you some inspiration for your look.

BTW, I totally went grocery shopping in this look.

Products used:
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW20
MAC Blotting Powder in Medium
Inglot Face Blush no. 72
Benefit F.Y.eye primer
Annabelle Vanilla Chilla eyeshadow (MAC equivalent would be Vanilla)
Annabelle So Foxy eyeshadow (MAC equivalent: Charcoal Brown)
Wet'n'Wild black gel eyeliner
NYX silver glitter eyeliner
Maybelline Full'n'Soft mascara
ES Clear Liner V Black false eyelashes*
Annabelle So Foxy + Inglot matte dark grey eyeshadows for brows
Sleek Makeup True Color lipstick in Cherry
NYX Mega Shine lipgloss in Garnet

I think my favorite part of this look is the lip combo, it just photographs beautifully. However, for a dinner out, I would probably opt for the lipstick alone to increase the longevity and prevent the product from getting on my teeth. I also find that these subtle false eyelashes add just the right amount of drama without overpowering the classic look, and my husband wasn't even able to tell I had falsies on.

I hope you enjoyed the make-up, I had a lot of fun putting it together and playing with some new lighting. Let me know in the comments what look you'll be wearing this Valentine's Day! x
