Valentine's Day Beauty

This Valentine's Day is the first I've spent with my husband in a while, as the holiday usually falls right in the middle of New York Fashion Week, which I decided to skip this season. We're not doing anything fancy - just a quiet night at home with a nice meal and good bottle of wine. And even though I'll most likely be in something casual, I still like the idea of getting a bit gussied up with a burgundy smoky eye and nude lip.


Items: NARS Ita brush, Armani bronzer, Bare Minerals eye shadow duo, NARS matte lipstick in 'Madere', Esteé Lauder Eyeliner in 'Blackened Cocoa' & Brush, Make Up Forever Blender Brush



Step 1: Apply lighter pink eyeshadow to entire lid and blend well.


Step 2: Sweep burgundy shadow across eyelid, concentrating on the inner corner of the eye.

Step 3: Using a clean brush, blend in the eyeshadow by going over the eyelid in small circles.


Step 4: Line inner eyelid with pencil and apply to the outer portion, concentrating on the outside corner of the eye.

Step 5: Smudge liner with fingers to create a bit of a slept-in look.


Step 6: Add bronzer from the corner of the ear down to the outer lip and blend.

Step 7: Apply matte nude lipstick.
