January is just about over and the month of love is literally a few blinks away! Now I'm not a romantic person, however, I do like to speak my mood through my style. This here is a look that's rosy yet edgy, romantic yet mataray. Read on to see what I did for my Valentine inspired Rosy Makeup Look.
I used a darker, more brooding palette of colors to sex-up the look. Hmmmm...this look went a little "after hours", hehe! Anyway, I had no intention of creating a demure look anyway.
Finally, I got some use out of my Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette, which is super duper cheap by the way. I thought I'd get more use out of it when I bought it last year but have barely touched it since. There is Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk which goes well with the color scheme. Then we have the regulars, Benefit Benetint, Benefit High Beam, Mac Plum Foolery, Maybelline Lash Sensational, and the quintessential pouty lip duo: Mac Whirl lipstick and lip liner.
Now, there is nothing precise in this makeup look. It's all about smudgy, blurry edges.
First, before base, I applied the Maybelline Pomegranate Punk all over my eyelids using my ring finger and on my bottom lashes using my pinky. Next, I smudged the darkest color onto outer corners of my eyes to form a V and blended it in. I used the only copper color on the palette to transition the colors on the crease then I used the lightest color to blur all of the edges. After this, I proceeded with my base routine using my regular foundation and concealer (Mac Face and Body; Maybelline Fit Me Concealer)and applied Benetint ( sparingly ) high up on the cheekbones and fading it out towards my temples. I put Mac Plum Foolery on top of Benetint to intensify the color just a tiny bit and added my High Beam where I needed the dew. Lastly, I applied Whirl Lipstick and Lipliner, powder and a spritz of rosewater to set. Finished up with a coat of Lash Sensational on top and bottom lashes. This is best worn with a bushy brow by the way. The bushy brow will make this modern.
The finished look says I like looking pretty but don't mess with me!
