Truth be told, I’ve never been a massive fan of Valentine’s Day. A forced holiday where there’s pressure to buy things (pretty soon after Christmas!), and, maybe feel left out if you don’t have a significant other. However, I love all the pink things, chocolates, and gorgeous makeup inspired by the occasion. Today I bring you my take on a V-Day makeup this year (and really, what I think is a pretty look for any day, any event) – it incorporates a slightly smokey (daytime smokey, if you will) golden-bronze eye, dewy pink cheeks, and, of course, a glossy pinky-nude lip. Please let me know what you think of the above look in the comments, and let me know what sort of makeup you’ll be wearing this Valentine’s Day!
