Askmewhats Version: "Valentines Day" Look

A reader requested for a "Valentine's Day" look, I hope you like this :)

Valentine's Day...ahhh...Romance! I am actually a very romantic person, when I was 10yrs old, I read my first book "On Becoming a Woman" lol and I've read those Sweet Dreams pocketbooks and imagine my "knight in shining armor"... don't even say I'm corny, I'm sure everyone out there has their fair share of imagination! lol Admit it! :P

Anyways, I'm sure a lot of you have your own version of Valentine's Day look, I still have a lot on mind but hot pinks really should be part of the look! lol And colored lippie for that sexy pucker! :P
Here's my final look!

My Askmewhats Diagram :D
(I tried making it as simple as possible)

Step 1:

Apply any base you want, UDPP/TFSI/MAC paintpots etc.. In this look, I used MAC Soft Ochre as base. Using a smaller e/s brush and my 78pcs Digital Angel palette LOL, pat on the "hottest pink" color you want on your lid going a little above the crease.

Step 2:

Deepen outer crease and create a V using a blending/crease brush. I used Milani Dark Chocolate e/s color. Blend well. Add the color as you go on.

Continuation of Step 2:

If you feel the color is too dark on your outer V, blend in with MAC Amber Lights to create a bit of gold-brown look.

Step 3:

Highlight the brow bone and inner corner of the eye with any highlighting powder that's 2 colors lighter than your skin.

Step 4 & 5:

Apply 4U2 Glitz liquid eyeliner on the lash line, going for your desired thickness. Since I cannot use liquid liner on my waterline, I applied Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Bourbon (almost same color as the liquid liner) on the waterline.

Coat your lashes with P&J Curly Mascara in 02 Brown after you curl your lashes with an eyelash curler.

Final eye look :)
Single or not, you can definitely rock this look!

Both eyes
Who says only boys make you happy?

Make-up can! hahaha

And here are other products I've used
on the rest of my face!

Skin79 VIP Gold Collection BB Cream
Ellana Intensive Foundation in French Vanilla
using my ultimate fave EDM Flat Top Brush

Arezia blush in Pink
(I am honestly using the 2nd layer of the palette more, love the blush colors!
The mosaic highlighter and the pressed powder)

Apply moisturizer all over lips, I use Kiehl's No. 1 Lip balm
Top with 4U2 Instinct Matte Lipstick in 05

Flirt and you'll have your Valentine date :P
If you have special someone

Flirt ONLY to him lol!

Have a great Valentine's Day!
I personally think Valentine's should NOT only be the day of flowers and chocolates!

Make everyday a sweet romantic day ok?

Stay sweet, stay happy, stay loved!
