Valentine's Look of the Day - Bold Lip & Wing

Hi Everyone! We hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day. We sure did! We wanted to show you a very simple yet stunning look that can be used everyday. Angela rocked this look for Valentine's Day at work and on a little musical outing we did. A friend asked us to be a "singing gram" for her fiance, so we took our guitars and surprised him with "their" song.We love seeing and being involved with LOVE in this world!

Anyway, back to the makeup! We didn't do a step by step because this look is simple and what you see is what you get. Feel free to ask us any questions or if you would like the break down.

FACE - Angela prepped her face with Makeup Forever HD Foundation and set it with Cover FX Pressed Mineral Powder. She used our favorite  Buxom True Hue Blush to give her cheeks some color.

LIPS - She then lined her lips with MAC Redd, and filled them in with Makeup Forever's Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in Satin Vermilion Red. This stuff is amazing!!! Great color payoff and it stays on ALL day. Angela wanted to add some dimension to her lips so she took MAC's Currant Lip Liner and lined her lips once more.

EYES - Angela used only two eye shadow shades, cream eyeliner, and mascara. Any light and dark combo of eyeshadow will work for this look using the light all over then blending the dark into crease. Using the wing tutorial we showed you here a few weeks ago, she created a nice wing that was appropriate for day.  She filled her waterline with the cream liner, but didn't put any under her bottom lashes, making it a very clean look. She finished with her favorite mascara and this stunning look was done in 15 minutes!


Thanks for reading!
