vday look 1

 

Yay, today is Valentine’s day, a day to celebrate love. Not only for your partner though, but anyone you love (well that’s how I like to see it). I know that for a lot of people V-Day is just commercial bs these days and let’s face it, it’s not far from the truth. But I do like to do a little something, mostly I like to enjoy some yummy food together with my fiancé. There is always an excuse for some good food, right? I’m not sure yet what I’m going to make but I was thinking something with potatoes, my fiancé’s favourite anything in food, lol! So let’s get ready, shall we?

 

all steps eyes

 

  1. Let’s start with a base colour first. I used a brown shade, close to my own skin tone all over my eyelids. It has a soft pearly finish so it gives a little bit of a nice sheen.
  2. Now I’m defining my eyes, I used a darker brown with a slight red tone in my crease and the outer ends of my eyelids.
  3. I use a little more of the defining shade to deepen the crease. On the middle part I used a shimmery golden shade to highlight that part. On the lower lash line I defined that line with a dark taupe shade.
  4. With an eye liner I lined my upper lash line and give it a slight wing. It’s just subtlr though because this look is not about a dramatic wing!
  5. And finally I curl my lashes, add some mascara and corner lashes!

 

blush

 

I used a medium matte pink on my cheeks in a very soft way. On my cheekbones I added a thin layer of highlighter for a bit of a glowy finish.

 

lips

 

On the lips I first went for a bright pink fuchsia. I used a thin layer of this with a lip brush on my lips. This way it’s not as intense, but it’s now used as a base colour. Over the bright pink I add a orange coral lip gloss. This will give the lips a fuller appearance and it evens out everything on the lips. Now you have pretty kissable lips!

As for the rest I kinda like to go for comfy and warm over chic and stylish. I’m just in my warm comfy cardigan and even a scarf because Valentines here are not exactly warm. When the warmer weather hits (like that ever happens here) I’m all for fun and bright clothes but right now I just want to be warm! So guys, any nice plans for today or are you just skipping it? Whatever you do have a nice day though! ^^

  4. You are GORGEOUS :D I’ve been following your blog for awhile now and this post is inspiring :D I love the pink on you…girly and feminine but independent and sure of herself all the same :D

    • Eeee, thanks so much! Well I wasn’t really sure for what I was going but it turned out fine ^^. Thank you so much for reading <3 !

  7. prettyyyy <3 as alwaysss :D

  8. You look pretty girl!!

  9. You look gorgeous as usual, Teri! I have Revlon Coral Reef and I usually wear it on its own – I never thought to layer it over pink. Will have to try that – it’s a really pretty look!

  10. Great look, I especially love the lips.

  11. Erg mooie look, vooral je lippen zijn goed gedaan!

    • Yay, dank je Lisa! Gloss over een lipstick maakt wel degelijk een mooi verschil, alleen vergeet ik het vaak te doen!

  12. This is almost exactly the look I was going to go for for my Valentine’s Day dinner as well (actually, this is pretty much my usual everyday look, as well–sans the accent lashes, though I am trying to incorporate them more now that I’ve found good lashes to do them with!). Somehow though, the look seems so much more polished and pretty on you :P ahh my lack of skills :P haha

    Happy Valentine’s Day, Teri! I hope you have fun with your fiance! My boyfriend and I will be doing the same–casual dinner, home to watch our favorite shows and snuggle :)

    • I bet you look lovely Becca! Don’t forget it’s just a picture here, I don’t look good in every lighning, lol. But yeah, I love these kind of looks, must learn to layer my lippies a lot more!

  13. De Healthy Mix Foundation van Bourjois is goddelijk, één van mijn favorieten! Schitterende lashes met de winged eyeliner, inclusief de roze lippen!

  14. Mooie look en die muts is zeer bruikbaar vandaag.

  15. Wow, die look staat je geweldig :)

  16. heel mooi :) je verloofde zal tevreden zijn!

  17. Stuff with a reddish undertone looks SO much better on you! It’s funny because technically speaking we have the same foundation shade ;) Happy V-Day Teri!

  18. mooie draagbare ooglook :D

  19. Heel leuk zo’n artikel! De look vind ik heel mooi, staat je fantastisch!
