It’s no secret that I’m a romantic at heart and I’m pretty lucky to have found a fairy tale love “Happily Ever After”,  which is something people search for their entire lives and never find.  So while I believe that love should be celebrated every single day of our lives, I am a fan of a day that celebrates hearts, chocolates, flowers and pretty things.

It’s time for another Valentine’s Day makeup look and this time I am using a combination of Milani and Jordana Cosmetics for a budget friendly, drug store look you can create quickly and easily.  Since my last Valentine’s Day makeup look (click here to view) included browns and bronze shades, I wanted to bring out the playful side of Valentine’s Day offering up a soft purple and rose gold look that would be perfect for a lunch date or stroll at the park.  In collaboration with my friend Beth, we are once again doing date night looks, her look will include drugstore products for an evening look and mine for a daytime look.  Check out the video below for a talk through (Get Ready With Me) style video or click here to watch directly on YouTube.  Details of my Cupcakes & Hearts Valentine’s Day Makeup can be found below.

Valentine's Day makeup look featuring Milani and Jordana

I enjoyed creating this look and wanted it to have a pop of color but also be soft and wearable.  If you have brown eyes like I do – the purple on the lower lash line will certainly bring out the brightness in your eyes almost instantly.  The color choices I picked reminded me of cupcakes and conversation hearts and I think this would make a great look for anyone with any skin tone shade.
