Valentine's Day Makeup: Create a Feminine Look With Only 8 Products

Wednesday, February 8, 2017
With Valentine's Day on the very near horizon, I thought I'd share a quick and easy beauty look you can recreate.   I literally only used 8 beauty items (the eye shadow palette counts as one).   I love makeup but I don't wear it every day.  It is important for any look I create to be easy.  I love how contouring looks but who has the time or the money to spend on all the products you need?  Not this girl.

First of all, I have to sing the praises of Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer.  I did an easy contour with just two colors:  Fair Golden and Medium Beige.  Love the coverage and ease of this stuff.  Blender sponges are my go to for applying concealer and foundation.   I will sometimes use a buffing brush as well.  Here is a good one from Morphe (I own it).  Their brushes are so affordable. 

Anywho, all I did was apply the lighter color under my eyes and on the raised parts of my face and nose.  Then I applied the darker color near my hairline, under my cheekbones and on my jawline.  I blended with the damp sponge and, voila.

Fleeking out your eyebrows is a must these days so I always make sure to use my Dipbrow when I do my makeup.  For my shadow, I used three colors.  Hard to tell specifics as the palette does not list the colors by name but I used a light mocha metallic all over, a bronze metallic in my crease and a matte taupe under my brows.  You wouldn't think that these colors "go together" but the mauvey nude cheek pencil and the terracotta lip, somehow work to create a feminine look I really liked.

There you have it.  I want to say it took my about 10 minutes to do my makeup from start to finish.  And most of the products are affordable.  That can be a relative term since makeup tends to be more expensive these days but there is nothing wrong with a good drugstore dupe either!  Try Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser if you love Smashbox Primer but not the price.  See below for links to the specific products I used.  Also, let me know if you would like to see me feature more beauty posts.  What in particular would you like to see more of?


  1. I love that lip color on you!! And I wish I could "fleek out" my brows lol. This look is soft and not over the top, I love it!

    1. Thanks sugar. You have to get some dipbrow and her eyebrow brush. I love it and it's so easy. They have your color, blondie!
