Guest Post! Valentine's Date Night Makeup Tutorial

Valentine’s Day Date Night Makeup
I just wanted to thank Tara for having me as her featured blog post for Valentine’s Day! It has been so wonderful to collaborate with her. When I read her profile and perused her blog I immediately fell in love with all of her cute posts. I noticed that we had a lot of similarities and so this was a great way to share our knowledge with eachothers’ subscribers. :)
 Hopefully, this look will provide you all with some inspiration for your date night or “singles awareness” night with your girlfriends. I wanted to do a sultry and sexy look that would be perfect for going for a night on the town :)

Products Used:

 1.)   Take Painterly Paint Pot and place all over the eye from the lids to the arch of your eyebrow. This primer will ensure that your eye shadow doesn’t crease and will make the pigments appear brighter.
 2.)   Fill in eyebrows with Milani Brow Fix Brow Kit powder. Filling in your brows with frame and shape your face.
 3.)   Using the NYX Slide On Pencil, draw under the arch of the brow and in the inner corner of the eye to bring light to the eyes. This will also make you appear more awake and will give the illusion of larger eyes.
4.)   Using windshield wiper motions, take a fluffy brush and sweep “Mauve” from the Lorac Palette in the crease of the eye. This will provide the transition color for the rest of the shadows and will make the eyes look deeper set.
 5.)   Take “Light Pink” from the Lorac Palette and pack the color onto the lid of the eye just until it hits the bottom of the crease.
6.)   Take “Stars N’ Rockets” and sweep this eyes shadow slightly above the mauve color. Blend together using a clean fluffy brush.
 7.)   Take “Fig 1” and place in a V Shape in the outer corner of the crease
 8.)   Take the purple Milani glitter liner and draw from the outer corner of the crease just to the middle section of the crease.
 9.)   Draw winged out liner on the top lash line with the Maybelline Gel liner in Black. Do a smaller wing underneath the bottom lash line.
10.)   Apply Mascara  to the top and bottom lashes

 And Voila! You’re looking gorgeous for a romantic/fun night out!
