– This is a fun and easy makeup look for Valentine's Day,
but let's be real here, not everyone is in a relationship.
I mean, there's some of you that might be single,
or maybe about to become single.
And do you know what?
Instead of making a day about love,
how about we make this a date about self-love?
So this is not meant to be a full on glam look,
this is literally something that you could do,
whether you're going out on date,
a night out with your friends, or maybe you're just home,
'cause you know what, we are still in a pandemic.
So just have fun with whatever it is
that you're planning to do.
And remember Valentine's Day, self-love, baby.
I've already gone ahead and applied skincare products
to my face, including some Papaw for my lips.
So we're gonna jump right in
and get started with the makeup.
But first let's get this hair out of the way.
This way we can apply some makeup properly.
For my face, I'm gonna apply the Illamasqua Hydra Veil,
absolutely love this primer for my face.
And for my eyes, I'm applying…
this is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer.
And the eye shadow primer, I'm even gonna apply this
underneath my eyes,
so it is literally around my entire eyes.
The primer will allow the makeup to just be applied
a lot more flawlessly without it getting into the creases,
or without even the pigmentation fading on us,
especially if you're gonna have it on for a few hours.
I'm going to start with eye makeup first.
And I'm gonna do the order of this a little bit differently,
compared to what you might've normally seen.
So I'm gonna start with my waterline makeup first.
I'm gonna be applying this eyeliner.
This is a beautiful maroon reddish color by Sephora,
the shade, itself, is called 04 Red Berry.
I'm applying this both to my top and bottom waterline.
For eyeshadows, we are gonna keep this incredibly simple,
and we're just gonna be using two shades.
So the first shade that we have, this is called Karma,
and the second shade that we're gonna use
is called Frazzled.
Starting with the Karma eyeshadow shade first,
I'm going to be applying
this all over the lid.
Now I'm using a slightly more fluffier eye shadow brush
'cause I do want this to be applied all over my lid
and I don't want the pigmentation to be too heavy.
Make sure to take a time to properly blend this out.
Next, I'm gonna be applying the shade Frazzled.
And for this one, I'm using an eyeshadow brush
that's slightly more flatter compared to the one
that we just used for applying the shade, Karma.
I'm concentrating this a little bit more
on the inner corner of my eye,
and the reason that I'm using the eyeshadow brush,
especially for a shimmery shade like this,
is because I did not want the shimmers to be too heavy.
If I used my fingers,
the pigmentation would have been a lot darker,
you would have seen a lot more shimmers.
But I'm trying to make this as subtle as possible,
especially because I wanna use a red lipstick for my lips,
and I want to keep the eye shadow look
as subtle as possible.
So for my under eyes,
I'm gonna be using my powder foundation technique.
Now, this is something
I normally tend to use.
I'm not a big fan of concealer, no matter what I've done,
it always seems to settle into my creases.
So I do like my powder foundation technique a lot more.
If you wanna see more information about this,
check out my other video where I've gone in detail
about how exactly is it that I cover up my under eyes
without using concealer.
Now, since I normally tend to use the same technique
over and over again, I'm not gonna go into too much detail
about it in this video.
For my lashes, I am using the Demi Wisp by Ardell.
I love these lashes because I feel like they give you
that subtle pop of having something a little bit extra,
but without it looking a little too crazy,
where you can clearly tell that you have fake lashes on.
With these, I have to admit,
there are times people have actually come up to me
and complimented that I've really nice lashes,
and didn't even realize that I was wearing false lashes.
I don't know how much to believe that, but Hey,
I will take that as a massive compliment
that these look as natural as possible.
Now that the eyes are completely done,
let's go ahead and move on to the rest of our face.
Now, I'm not gonna be applying a full face of foundation
'cause I'm just not a fan of foundation, in general.
So instead, what I'm gonna use is,
I'm gonna be using my powder foundation,
and I'm just gently applying it in areas
where I feel like I need a little bit of coverage.
I don't mind if some of my hyperpigmentation,
my age spots, are coming through.
My main goal really is just to, sort of, blur it out.
So this way it has more of a natural look,
without it looking like it's really cakey.
And honestly, my second reason being
is that I am in my forties, I do have more aging skin.
The more makeup I put on, the more obvious it is,
and I do like a very natural look for my face,
especially for my skin.
I want skin to look like real skin.
For my blush, I'm using the Rare Beauty Liquid Blush.
This is in the color Bliss,
and I'm just gonna apply this with my fingers,
keep this as simple as possible.
Really, my main goal with this is just
to give it a little bit of pop of color on my cheeks.
I'm not trying to get this to look absolutely perfect
or anything like that.
I just want to give this that look of,
when you're out in the sun
and your cheeks get a little bit flushed.
And just a tad bit on my nose,
and then just taking it across to both my cheeks.
So as you can see, this really is very subtle.
And to be honest with you, this will fade over time.
So once it's been, I would say, easily two to three hours,
this pigmentation is gonna go down quite a bit.
So either carry more
of this blush with you,
or go a little bit darker with your shade,
so this way it stays on
there for a few hours.
So we are on to our last step of applying our lipstick.
I am really excited to use this one
'cause honestly I don't do red that often.
And I love the different combinations that they have
in here of how they put this whole thing together.
So let's go ahead and apply this.
I'm gonna start with a little lip liner first,
and then move on to the next two steps.
For the lip liner,
I'm literally just keeping this exact shape on my lips.
I'm not trying to overline or anything,
just keeping this as simple and easy as possible.
By the way, if you want to overline them,
please go ahead and do that.
You do you, Boo, do what makes you happy.
So for me, mainly 'cause
red lips are so hard to do,
I just wanna keep it with the exact shape of my lips,
so this way I don't mess it up.
Now that the lip liner is done,
I'm gonna move on with the liquid matte lipstick.
So the last step that we have here is the lip strobe,
and I'm gonna be applying this
right in the middle of the lips
to give it that beautiful shine.
So here is our final makeup look.
And I wanna wish you a beautiful Valentine's Day.
