Valentine’s Day \\ The Look

Valentine’s Day \\ The Look

Ah, the best day of the year for single people – Valentine’s Day.

To me, this has and always will be a Hallmark holiday that I do not care to celebrate whether or not I have a boyfriend. Thought I’d do a little tutorial for all the non-believers/Valentine’s lovers. I’ll be waiting for the candy sale on the 15th.

Here’s my 10 step tutorial for V-Day.


Step 1: A dark smoky eye to accurately reflect the color of your soul


Step 2: Cat Eyes to foreshadow that you’ll become a crazy cat lady


Step 3: Waterproof mascara for when you realize that literally all of your friends have significant others


Step 4: Full coverage concealer to hide your true feelings


Step 5: Sharp contour to show that you aren’t to be messed with


Step 6: A strong brow to show that you are a strong woman


Step 7: Highlighter because you need more men to notice you


Step 8: A dark, vampy lip because lord knows you’re not making out with anyone


Step 9: Setting spray to make your makeup last until you find a man, better hope it’ll keep your makeup on for years


Step 10: Finish the look, conquer the world – or the bar

Copper Smoky Eye Look

I’ve been having a moment with beauty vloggers and its made me want to try new things with my makeup. I decided to play around today while getting ready and really liked how it turned out so I thought I’d share it with you! I’m usually a neutral girl but I adore this look- plus the only thing on the eyes is an elf palette! Yes drugstore makeup. Enjoy!



Quick Suggestion: Start with eyes so that you can dust away any fallout! Especially if you use this elf palette. I also used the eyeshadow on the lash line which was gorgeous.

Shadow: Elf Flawless Eyeshadow in Gold Goddess

Gel Liner: Benefit They’re Real! Push Up Liner in Black

Water Line: L’Oreal Infalliable Liner in Carbon Black
