Valentines Day Make Up: Sultry Smoky Eyes

It’s that time of the month again, most lovebird’s favorite day… Valentines Day! [or at least my favourite day!] I imagine beautiful flowers… candles… delicious dinner… kisses! It’s all about taking at least one day/night in a year out of your busy schedule and spending it fully with your loved ones. I’ve never really fantasized a detail-by-detail, “dream” Valentines Night, although I’d appreciate if my husband takes me to an unexpected place and make it an unexpected night, something a little more extravagant than your ordinary dinner out at a restaurant [which of course, I love!]. I guess I’m just saying that every girl needs to feel special on this day one way or another. So… take your make up kit out and let’s start spicing up!

This make up look pretty much describes my “go-to” look because it’s very easy yet it brings out the features of your face. It suits everyone, in my opinion, regardless of your skin color, eye shape, etc.
Not everyone is a fan of bright make up looks, so if you’re one of those ladies who likes to rock neutral smoky eyes, here’s a make up tutorial I filmed particularly for this special day. Wear this out with your date or of course, my single ladies out there, you can totally rock this make up look on a date with your friends or family just as well.

And… since this is a Valentines Day post, why not post a picture of my husband and I on our wedding day.
[Yep, I’m behind on that wedding post but I’ll be sure to post it anytime this week!]
So consider this a little preview! :)

“I love you for all that you are,
all that you have been,
and all you’re yet to be”
