Smoldering Valentine’s Day Look

There are 24 hours left until Valentine’s Day and not that we’re counting, but planning out a makeup look takes time. But, have no fear, we’ve created another simple, yet sexy, smoldering Valentine’s Day look for you. This entire look takes about 15 minutes, so it’s not overly complicated or complicated at all. You won’t need a trillion products to achieve this look.

Check out how it’s done below.

I used my favorite powder foundation, Au Naturale Cosmetics in Lucia, but any favorite foundation of your choice will do. I then applied Au Naturale Concealer Powder in Flax under my eyes in an upside-down triangle shape. The triangle tip helps to brighten up the center part of your face without making you look like a disco ball. Once I did that, I needed to add some color and dimension back on my face. Again, Au Naturale’s bronzer in Warm applied it with the Teri Miyahira Beauty Brush in 05 into the hollows of my cheeks. Then, I tapped Root Pretty’s blush, Sunniest, on the apples of my cheeks!

I would suggest keeping the bronzer and blush fresh and neutral because this look focuses on the eyes.

Onto the star of the show- they eyes!

Step 1: Apply Modern Mineral’s Twilight all over the lid.

Step 2: Apply Root Pretty’s Brow Powder in Deep Brown and applied that in my crease with a crease brush. I used the Teri Miyahira Beauty Brush in 10. This brush is my absolute favorite brush to add color to my crease because it really makes it so easy.

Step 3: Tap an illuminating powder shadow on the center of the lid and blend it out. This helps to make the eyes pop when you blink which sounds a little weird, but trust me, it’s sexy. I used the TMB Confidence eye shadow and Lucky illuminating powder.

Step 4: Apply Antonym eyeliner, Lilylolo mascara, and Root Pretty’s Brow Pomade in Deep Brown to the brows.

Step 5: Apply a highlighter to the inner corners of the eyes, brown bone, cheekbones, and Cupid’s bow. (I used TMB in shade Lucky).

Step 6: Pop Gressa Lip Tint in Jolie on the lips for the final touch.
