Valentine’s Day Look #2: Pinky-Promise

 

Pink pink pink!

I have to say, recently I’m loving the color pink. Fine timing, eh? I mean, with Valentine’s Day coming up and all…..

So here’s a very pink look you can try this year! A black, gray, or white sweater with a matching pink scarf would go nicely with this look.

The Ocean’s Calling Me…

So I like snow. I like it up till mid January. Then it’s over. I’m done. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to summer time, the blue water on the white sand, the white clouds against the blue sky. The leaves on the trees…. yeah, I guess I’ve made my point.

So here’s a makeup look that reminds me of the blue ocean and yet is a suitable winter party look:

Turquoise on the lid and bottom lashline…

Deep purple-based blue in the crease…

IMG_2702

Black liquid liner and mascara…

IMG_2700

Pink lipbalm and blush and you’re set.

It’s that simple.

My eyes nearly always look brown, but these blues brought out the green in there! I’m always afraid to go bold with eyeshadow, but when I do, I love it.

I’m especially happy to have gotten “Making Faces” as I have wanted it for a long time:
