Two Makeup Looks Perfect For Valentine's Day

Two Makeup Looks Perfect For Valentine's Day


Last week, Lyndi from Style Calling + Cee of Coco + Vera, asked me to be apart of their Valentine's Day inspired photoshoot at Faubourg. They wanted soft and clean beauty looks to compliment their style and the rose coloured details of the photoshoot. See Cee + Lyndi's Valentine's Day tea herehere but first check out below the makeup looks I created for them.

Lyndi's Makeup Look

Skin: After prepping the skin with skincare and primer I used Giorgio Armani foundation to perfect Lyndi's already beautiful skin. I then used a light pink cream blush and swept translucent powder in the t-zone. Lastly I used a light shimmer to highlight the cheek bones.

Eyes: I kept Lyndi's eye look very natural. I swept a light pink shadow all over the lid with a taupe colour in the crease. Lastly I lined with a deep brown eyeliner and applied two coats of mascara.

Lips + Brows: For Lyndi's brows I filled them in with a light brown eyebrow pencil. I finished them off with a light application of brow gel. For lips I choose one of my favourite Smashbox Lipsticks, Be Legendary "Primrose". It is the perfect light pink to complete this look.

Cee's Makeup Look

Skin: After applying tinted moisturizer and concealer on Cee, I applied Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk powder foundation for a bit more coverage. This powder is super light weight so it gives the skin a flawless finish without looking heavy. For a bit more definition I lightly contoured under the cheekbones, then applied a rose-pink blush.

Eyes: This low-key cat eye look was easy to create and is perfect for afternoon tea with the girls or a casual date night with your guy. After priming the eyelid, use a shadow similar to your skin tone all over the lid. Define the crease with a light brown or taupe shadow. Lastly use a brown or black liquid liner to create your feline flick before finishing with mascara.

Lips + Brows: For Cee's lip look I used a lip liner to line and fill in the lips, then I applied a light pink gloss. Since Cee already has bold brows I only lightly filled in any bare spots and then used a brow wax to help hold them in place.
