First of all, my sincere apologies for the lateness of this blogpost, as I filmed this tutorial JUST before I went on my holiday to Thailand and I didn’t manage to write it in time (and life has been so hectic since I got back that I kept putting it off!).
This is a special Valentine’s Day makeup look and as the title suggests, it’s inspired by the beautiful soft colours of violets and pink roses.
Pink is always a romantic colour but it can be difficult to pull off, that’s why it is so much more wearable when combined with the purple eyeshadow. The added iridescent purple loose dust adds that extra bit of magic to finish off the look.
This look is very soft so the key is to blend, blend, blend! Also try and use demi/half lashes (if you are to wear falsies) instead of full lashes to keep the eyes looking subtle and pretty.
I kept the rest of the face simple with a shimmery peachy pink blush, illuminator and pinky nude lips.
PS: In case you’re wondering what outfit I’m wearing in the video, it’s my purple dress from Melbourne Cup last year!
Now a bit about my own Valentine’s Day. I didn’t do anything super special on the actual day because everything is always so over-priced (and over-commercialised) and because I was at work all day.
My boyfriend did send these pretty flowers to my house, which was a nice little surprise to come home to
We also went to see ‘The Vow’ the weekend before (yes I forced my boyfriend to watch it with me haha). I’ve been wanting to watch it since the trailer came out a couple of months ago as I love both Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum (and romantic movies of course!).
Overall, it was a sweet film but not as touching as I thought it would be. I expected myself to cry (because I am a huge sook when it comes to these sort of movies) but surprisingly I didn’t! And is it just me or does Rachel McAdams always play someone who loses their memory and/or an artist?!?
Did you get up to something special for Valentine’s Day? I’d love to hear your romantic V-Day stories so let me know below!
