For Valentine’s Day Kevin and I created an overall bronzy look and eye catching eyes with what’s almost like a Must Do for the day of love: fire red lips. The center of attention of this look or better phrased – what makes this look work so well is highlighting, for which we used a bronze color by YSL and we also added a bit of the Zoeva blush that is rosy to give me that freshness and glow. We used the same bronzer on my eyelids, not only to match colors but also because it just really complements my skin tone. The eyelids were accentuated with a lighter bronze color from Topshop.
Kevin contoured my crease to give my eyes and the total look more depth by using black eyeshadow from the Kryolan Eyeshadow Palette and getting darker towards the edges and blending into the bronze color on my lids.
Last but not least Kevin drew a line from the middle of my lids towards my outer end by using the Zoeva Cat Eyeliner (perf perfect eyeliner! I love it! Super easy to use and stays on superlong without smudging. I can only praise this tool!).
I’m not wearing any foundation. As you know I don’t usually wear any make up except for the occasional eyeliner and color pop lipsticks. For me what we’ve done above I personally consider as wearing a lot of make up, but do still feel it’s quite settle yet draws attention to only two spots in my face: my eyes and my lips. As a “foundation” we used a bit of Benefit’s Porefessional that’s supposed to smoothen out your skin and give it a good base. I guess it’s working.
Finally I’m wearing Fake lashes from Zoeva. The trick here is to cut of the inner half of the fake lashes and apply them only to the outer part of your eyes. This will open them up and give it more of the cat eye/almond-y shape. It’s a total highlight and eye catcher and you should definitely try this.
I hope you like the look and had a wonderful Valentines Day so far!
