Valentine’s Day is a holiday filled with soft pinks and sweet kisses and as a tradition, each year I have created a Valentine’s Day look using the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palettes.  This year I decided I would go ahead and do a “GRWM” Style makeup look that features the newly released Too Faced Bon Bons Palette and add it to my tradition.  “Just Call Me Sweetheart” is a soft and sweet Valentine’s Day look that can be used day or night but it is an easy look to create that features a little pop of pink that’s subtle with a little sexy.  I hope you enjoy this look.  Check out the video below and hang out and talk story as I get ready and create this Valentine’s Day look.

Creating this look meant it needed to be quick and easy.  From start to finish I say it took me about 25 minutes to complete.  I wanted this to be a wearable makeup look that could be used for day or night.  If you want to spice things up a bit – you could surely add a pair of flirty false lashes to the look to make it a bit more glam, but I opted to go for my mini lashes (natural lashes) and the look was complete.  To create this look I used the following products:

  • Eye brows:  Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil and Taupe Brow Powder set with BDB Brow Gel
  • Eye shadow base / primer:  Milani Eye Primer
  • Eye shadow palette – Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette, shadows used:  Divinity (all over the lid from lash line to brow bone), Mocha (transition shade), Molasses Chip (lid), Bordeaux (outer v / outer corner and lower lash line), Dark Truffle (used to deepen the outer corner), Totally Fetch (lower lash line blended with Bordeaux), Satin Sheets (inner corner highlight), Divinity and Cashew Chew (brow bone highlight)
  • Mascara:  Essence Get Big!  Lashes Volume Boost in Waterproof (black)
  • Eyeliner:  Milani Kohl Kajal Eyeliner
  • Foundation:  PUR Hydra Fluid Water Serum Foundation in Tan (I don’t use foundation normally, but I’m trying this one out… so if you want, you can opt to go without foundation as I would normally).
  • Blush:  Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette – Blush in Love Hangover
  • Lips:  Jordana Twist Up Lip Liner in Rock-n-Rose, topped and layered with ColourPop Lippy Stix in Lumiere and Milani Matte Naked Color Statement Lipstick.  Later in the day, I switched up my lips and added ColourPop’s Bumble for all day smooch-proof lips.

When I created this, I wanted this look to be soft with a pop of color so I opted to use fluffy brushes to apply and put down most of the shades on my eyes.  If you really wanted to you could use a more defined brush for precision but I really wanted the eyes to look diffused so each shade was applied using a blending brush except for the lid shade which I used a pretty large eye shadow brush to lay down the shade.

If pink is not your favorite color for the lips, you could opt for a nude lip shade and it would still do very well with the eye look.  Play around with colors and see what you think will work for your skin tone and your overall look.

I’m naturally a busy bee so when I am looking to create fierce looking eye makeup – I not only have to do it quickly, but it needs to be pretty easy as well.  Over the years I have found that a soft brown smoky eye or even a purple or burgundy hued one is my best play on eye looks to bring out my brown eyes, but lately I’ve been digging adding grey hues to the mix and found that this look could definitely be a showstopper.  Today I bring to you a Smoldering Smoky, Easy Smoky Eye featuring the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette.  It’s my first true makeup look using this particular palette so I hope you enjoy.

Smoldering Smoky - Easy Smoky Eye Featuring Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette
A complete step by step walk-through tutorial can be found in the video embedded below or you can click here to watch directly on YouTube.

I began this look by applying my Milani Eye Shadow primer all over the lid and onto the lower lash line.  Then taking my Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette – I swept Laetus all over the lid. Samael was then applied as my transition shade and blended towards my browbone to blend the highlight shade and transition effortlessly.  Saleos was applied onto my lid with patting motions and a domed eye shadow brush followed with Solas which was applied on the top of Saleos to soften the shade.  Then I applied Solas into my crease and added Succubus to give the look a more blended and darker effect.

Using the Milani Kohl Kajal liner, I lined my upper and lower lash line and waterline.  Then used the deep shades from the Kat Von D palette to smoke out and smudge the liner to create a softer look.  I then used Latinus to highlight my browbone and applied Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening mascara and Ardell Demi Whispies lashes.

To add light definition and contour to my face, I used my NYX Matte Bronzer in Deep and added warmth to my face.  I am using Milani Rose Powder Blush in Warm Petals to add a little warmth and color to my face and finished with Becca Shimmering Face Perfector in Champagne Pop for highlight.  For my lips I am using ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Trap with a little of Tulle topped to give a little different hue.

This look is a bit bold, but still wearable and so quick and easy to create.  Don’t forget to check out my tutorial for the deets and I hope you enjoyed this.  It’s been a while since I have done something quite bold, but I had a lot of fun doing so.  I’m totally diggin’ the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette and I’m having fun trying out new combinations.

Have a wonderful day!
