Valentines Day Beauty Picks

With Valentines Day right around the corner I thought I would share some of the products that I am considering to use to create a simple and sweet makeup look. As it is Valentines Day of course a lot of the products will be pink {oui so girly} I was considering throwing in some reds but I think pink is much more natural and suits the looks I'm going for.

For eyes, I'm going to keep it very simple with this MAC Eyeshadow Quad in "Showstopper" which is  really lovely on. Obviously with a quad you can create many different combinations but I'm just going to use all of them and add winged eyeliner and then mascara. If you're more daring, I would suggest deepening the crease with the darker shade and adding more sparkle, voilà. 

Another way to incorporate pink into a look is by lightly applying pink blush. I didn't want to go crazy with dark pink blushes so I picked a couple that are sheer but build-able to create a fresh and subtle feel. One of my picks is the Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush which has a variety of colours that you swirl around to create one glowing colour on your cheeks. The other is the Benefit's Boxed Blush in Dandelion which is the perfect ballerina pink shade to really give natural colour to the face.

This is the fun and yet really frustrating part because I have so many different shades of pink lipsticks, lip glosses, etc. that it seems impossible to choose just one. That's why I narrowed it down to some of the lip products that I think would complete this look. The first being a MAC lipstick in "Sweetie" which is a Lustre finish and it's sheer and gives a nice sheen. The second is a Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in "Celestial" which is a dusty rose colour and is my favourite out of the whole Apocalips range. The third is a Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in "Born with it" which is a sheer light pink lipstick which is perfect for a simple Valentines Day look.

And these are some of the products that will be gracing my face this Valentines Day.
What are your picks for Valentines Day?
