Valentine's Day Themed Face of the Day

It's time for some Valentine's Day makeup.  Lots of pink, of course.

Pics with flash show the pink shadow better

Eyes: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk
          MAC eyeshadow in Pink Venus
          Urban Decay eyeshadow in Limit (from the Naked 3 palette)
          Sonia Kashuk Dramatically Defining Gel Eyeliner in Ebony
          L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara

MAC Pink Venus eyeshadow

Cheeks: Stila Love at First Blush palette (limited edition from 2012 I think)

Lips: Starlooks Lip Pencil in Tickle Me Pink

This look actually started out much softer and more romantic, but then I went a little crazy with the gel eyeliner and it turned into something more dramatic.

I kept the lips matte (which is unusual for me) using just the Starlooks lip pencil.  I think the lip pencil color looks lovely with the eyes, and I didn't want to change the color in any way.

I'll probably wear some sort of smokey eye look for the actual day of the St. Valentine celebration because my husband is such a big fan of smokey eyes.

What do you think of Valentine's Day makeup?  Do you automatically think of pinks and reds?


  1. Ooh, pretty! Loving the dramatic winged liner and the pretty pink lip. Happy Valentine's :)


  2. So pretty!! I love the color of the mac shadow!
    Have a great Valentine's Day! (:

  3. Loved the winged liner! I do think of pinks and reds for Valentine's Day. Soft purples too. But mostly I just think about chocolate. :P

  4. This is a great look for Valentine's Day!
