Happy Wednesday and Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! I hope today is a great one for you all, whether single or not, make today a great day! For today’s post I’ll be sharing a simple makeup look for this special day! So recently, I’ve gotten back into makeup and in general, I’m more of a simple gal when it comes to makeup, not too over the top, but also not too minimal either, depending on the day, of course.
I think this look is good for everyday and it’s simple enough and perfect for anyone who doesn’t like to put on too much makeup, so let’s get into this makeup look!
I prepped my skin like I always do before applying makeup and I do my foundation and concealer like normal. Once that’s done, I use my contour and highlighter stick to do some slight contouring and highlighting and blend it out with my blending sponge and the base is done!
Once I’m done with the base, I like to go ahead and fill in my brows and give them some good grooming because sometimes they can be a bit crazy haha. Even though this pomade is of a waxy material, I still like to seal it with clear brow gel so it doesn’t budge.
After I’ve taken care of my brows, I go to the cheek area next. I start with a small amount of contour powder, then a splash of blush and of course, I finish my cheeks off with some highlighter!
Now for the eyes! I used this Urban Decay palette because I think it’s a good palette to use on this day (or really whenever you feel like using it haha) and I only used 4 shades from the palette. I used Nooner as my transition shade, Buzz as my lid shade, Dust as my inner corner shade, and Strange as my brow shade. Then I used my liner as a guide and went over it with some liquid liner and gave my lashes a coat of each mascara and curling them and the eyes were done! Easy and very simple!
Almost done with the look! Now for the lips I wanted to give some moisture to my lips so I used a small amount of chapstick and then I applied this lovely mauve-y rose liquid lipstick and I love it so much and it’s not too drying like other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried!
To seal this look I used this finishing spray to give my face a more softer and fresher look! Really love using this little number!

Here’s how the look turned out! Now excuse the crappy lighting, but I can’t control the weather and lighting, sadly. I worked with what I could use at that time! Haha
So that’s the makeup look! I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for taking the time to read my post! I hope your day is wonderful and again, Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! 💖✨
What are your plans for today?
