Be My Valentine!
Valentine’s Day is just a few short weeks away. Most you know – I have a huge crush on anything that has to do with “being in love” and this Holiday is no exception. Since I came up short with doing any Valentine’s Day tutorials last year (I only posted looks), I decided that it would be best to start early this year. I am also entering this look into the Ipsy January Look Challenge since I was able to utilize products from the January Ipsy Bag. This will also be the first tutorial using the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette (review coming soon).
So have you put any thought into what you are going to be doing this Valentine’s Day? My husband will be working the night shift so my sons and I will be having a nice little dinner at home. While I’ll miss my husband tremendously (I’m one of those gushy romantics), I know that everyday is Valentine’s Day for us and I’m lucky that he makes me feel special each and every day!
Check out the list of products used as well as a video tutorial embedded below. You can also watch the video directly on YouTube here.

I wanted this look to be very easy to recreate and wearable. While the liner is a bit on the bold and dramatic side, this look will offer a bit of sexy and sultry but without all the effort. You can surely add blush/bronzer if you wanted to – but I decided to opt out of that in this look. I promise to have at least one more Valentine’s Day tutorial posted in the next two weeks, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.
