♡Falling for You: A Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial♡

Hello Lovelies, Valentine’s Day is less than a month away so I thought I would do a sweet & romantic makeup tutorial! Not only do I think this look is perfect for V-Day but would work any other day of the year when you want to go for a more girly look!

See the tutorial here:

Or follow the step by step instructions:

Start by applying a primer to your lids and lower lash line so our shadow appears more vibrant, stays on, and does not crease.
 Cream shadows will provide a great base for our look. Using your ring finger apply a light gold shade to the inner half of the lid as well as the inner corner to get a nice highlight. Switch over to the light purple-y pink shade and apply it to the outer half of the lid.
Take a flat shader brush and a shimmery gold, coppery, pinky shadow, and apply it over the gold base. Using a light lavender shade and the same shader brush, apply the color over the purple base. 
Use a fluffy blending brush to define the crease with a purple eye shadow. Lightly work the shadow into the crease, and keep building the color up until you are happy with the intensity.
With a large shader brush and a skin tone shadow, highlight the brow and blend the edges of the shadow.
Apply a plum eyeliner to your upper lash line as well as the outer half of the lower lash line to give the eye more definition. With an angled liner brush smudge the color into your lashes, and use the purple eye shadow to intensify the color and set the liner. Take the light lavender shade and fill in the gap between the purple and gold. 
To give the eyes a pretty glow, apply a gold eye liner to the waterline.
Finish off the eye with a layer of mascara to the top and bottom lashes. 
Keep the cheeks neutral but still give them some color. Using a peach blush and an angled blush brush, focus the color on the apple of your cheeks and work it up towards your temple.
As for the lips I would either go for a nude shade, or a pretty light pink. Finish the look with a layer of lip-gloss.
