Get ready for your Valentines Day date and create this effortless smokey eyes makeup – wrap your eyes in gorgeous shades of pink, violet and purple for the perfect sultry Valentines Day look.
Before applying the foundation use a primer. The primer will assure longer lasting makeup and smooth coverage. Then apply your foundation as you normally would to even out skin tone and cover any blemishes you may have. Set it with finishing powder.
Pack onto your upper eyelid – from lash line to crease – a shimmery violet eyeshadow, blending around the corners and into the socket line. Use a deep purple on the outer corners of your eyes and gently blending into and along the crease.
To give more depth to the eyes, create contrast by applying electric pink eye shadow in the middle of the upper lid and blend carefully. Take the violet and apply it to the lower lash line.
Emphasize lashes by curling them first, then apply two coats of black mascara concentrating in the middle and outer corners using upward strokes. If you want more drama apply a pair of false lashes.
Cheeks & Lips
Use a subtle lilac-pink blush on the apples of the cheeks, then sweep on some shimmery highlighter right on your cheek bones and blend these two together. Since the eyes are the main focus of this look, lips have to be soft – apply just a drop of clear lip gloss to the lips.
