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.

I was looking through some shots I took of some beautiful French hotels I stayed at last time I was in Paris and it inspired me to shoot a little boudoir theme collection of my January Favorites! Paris is the easiest city to fall in love with, don’t you think? 🗼❤️

Self Love #DressYourTech Wallpaper Downloads

It’s freebie #DressYourTech time again! My cousin-in-law, @danidee44, posted THIS quote on Instagram recently that inspired the first wallpaper you’ll see below… it’s a little reminder to love yourself enough to be whatever you want, every day, even if it changes day to day, even if it scares you.

This second pretty little wallpaper is, of course, Southern inspired! (big surprise, right?!) I think it’s high time we took back this phrase “Bless Your Heart,” and made it sweet again, don’t you agree?
