Hello, My name is Samantha from the blog Makeup In Montana, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be here today on fellow Montanan Glittered By Cassie’s blog to share a few looks that may help give a little inspiration for Valentine’s Day. Please go check out Cassie’s review of the Tarte Maneater Palette as well as a fantastic look over on my blog!
If you’re anything like most people, when you think of Valentine’s Day, you think of pinks and reds, romantic rose colors. I wanted to incorporate those classic Valentine’s colors while keeping the looks wearable and easy to recreate. Without further ado, let’s get into the looks!
Look #1 – Simple Romantic Mauve
–L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation (201)
–Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer (Fair)
-The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer on cheekbones and bridge of my nose.
–The Balm Cindy Lou-Manizer on apples of cheeks.
–Vintage By Jessia Liebskind lip gloss in “Pink Sequin”.
This is such an easy look, but I love the soft matte mauves with the shimmery inner corner. The skin is very minimal and light with emphasis on blush and highlight, and I kept my lips bare and topped them with a sheer shimmer gloss.
–Lorac Pro Palette shades “Taupe” as a transition, “Mauve” in the crease, and “Light Pink” on the lid”.
–Naked Cosmetics pigment in “Sierra Nevada 02” on inner corner.
–Jordana “Continuous Almond” liner in waterline.
–Ardell Natural 110 lashes.
This will look stunning on any eye color or skintone, though specific shades will most likely need to be adjusted depending on skintone.
Look #2 – Smokey Liner & Red Ombre Lips.
-L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation (201)
–Tarte Shape Tape Concealer (Fair)
-The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer highlight.
–Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons in “Truffle” on lip line, and “Red Velvet” in the center, lightly blended together.
This look is a little more flawless than the previous, with a stronger contour and emphasis on the subtle ombre lips. It’s a little different take on the classic red lips and winged liner look.
–Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette in shades “Golden Ochre” in the crease, “Tempera” on the lid and inner corner, and “Cyprus Umber” as the wing.
–Ardell Demi Wispies lashes. (If I were to do this look again, I would sub in more natural lashes or skip them completely. They add a beautiful cat eye effect, but did cover the wing quite a bit.)
Look #3 – Greige Eyes & Lips.
(Still working on the ISO on my camera, which is why my skintone is off in this photo)
-L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation (201)
-Tarte Shape Tape Concealer (Fair)
-The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer highlighter
-Elf Cosmetics Contour Kit.
This is my favorite look out of all three, specifically because it’s a little out-of-the-box without being over the top. Greige (grey-beige) is not typically a shade that comes to mind when one thinks of Valentine’s Day, yet it really seems to work. This look focuses on monochromatic lips and eyes, and the skin a little more subdued and natural.
-Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette in shades “Warm Taupe” as a transition, “Buon Fresco” in the crease, “Tempera” on the lid, and “Vermeer” in the inner corner.
–Hikari Liquid Liner in “Iris” for the wing.
–Ardell Soft Touch #162 Lashes.
For me, these lashes make the look. They’re wispy, while still adding a lot of structure and shape but not overwhelming the eyes.
And with that, we end today’s post. Thank you so much to Cassie for having me here, and thank you for reading and hopefully enjoying the post. If you’re interested in more of my posts, please check out my blog!
