In Anticipation of Valentine’s Day…


This isn’t my official “Valentine’s Day Look” post, but I rounded up a few things [ok, a lot more than a few] the other day and wanted to share more of the specifics with you guys. I guess it’s more of a, “what color scheme I’m going for this Valentine’s Day” post. And, you’ve guessed it, lots of glow, pink, and bronze-y golds.

Obviously, if you love reds, you do you, ya know? I’m a huge fan of bold lips every now and again, but I stick to my neutrals for everyday, and love a kind of soft, almost angelic look for a date night. Also love making things a bit more special with a golden-flecked gloss patted onto the center of lips, and golden shimmer dusted lightly over tops of cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, as well as added to the inner corners of the eyes. Some of my faves from the above:

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk

Mac Dainty Blush

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick

Nars Lip Gloss in Istria

By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Hydra-Balm in Nude Pulp

Burberry Colour Cream Shadow in Gold Copper

Le Metier de Beaute Creme Lip & Cheek Tint in Mystique

Le Metier de Beaute Lipstick in Palm Springs

Chantecaille Lip Gloss in Lucky

Hourglass Strobe Light in Euphoric

Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow

Mac Woodwinked Eyeshadow

Are you already planning what to wear this Valentine’s Day?

    I love all the pinks and reds around this time of the year. While I don’t have any specific plans, I’ll probably be opting for Mac Lustering on my lips, and Tarte True Love on my cheeks. With a ton of highlighter for good measure.
