Dusty Rose Valentine’s Makeup

I wasn’t originally going to publish a Valentine’s Day makeup look because I didn’t want to shop for new stuff, but I’ve started this new thing where I try to “shop” my own collection of makeup! I ended up finding some palettes I haven’t used in a while and created this look that was just too pretty not to share! If you’re thinking of creating a last-minute romantic makeup look for today I suggest you go back through your old makeup and see what you can find! You really only need a few shades of blush/pink/peach eye shadows, a dusty/rosy pink lipstick and a liquid illuminator. If you’re really desperate, head to the drugstore! I’ll be linking drugstore “dupes” for all the products I used too!

Dusty Rose Valentine's Day Makeup

Romantic Dusty Rose Makeup for Valentine's Day

For the lips I layered three newly released Maybelline products: 125 Magnetic Mauve Color Sensation Shaping Lip Liner, 565 Almond Rose Matte Lipstick & 02 Grey Envy Vivid Matte Liquid Color Sensational Gloss. Y’all may remember me raving over the vivid matte liquid product before HERE and I’m in love with this new one as much as I was with the original shades!For the eyes I started with a light pink shimmer shadow all over the lid and worked a smokey rose shade into the crease, then blended a deep golden brown into the outer corners and finished with a glitter bronze gold in the center of the lid. For liner I used a small tapered brush and smoked out a line along the upper lashes with a charcoal gray to keep everything soft and romantic.To get the “glowy” skin look I mixed a small amount of liquid illuminator with my foundation and blended with a sponge applicator. I finished with a rich peachy powder blush and a swipe of powder highlighter to really make my skin look healthy and bright! Do your brows and contouring the way you normally would.
