Valentine's Day "Purple Love" FOTD

This weekend, I had the whole day on Saturday to play with my makeup. I've been needing to update the blog with a few more pictures, so I decided since the weather was nice (kinda windy though) it was a good idea to make my face and take a few pictures.

Valentines Day is about a week away! I can't wait!! hehe...Mr. H and I don't have any plans other then him taking me shopping on Monday, which is always good! So I finally got around to doing a V-Day look for you all. I wanted to try and add more color this time around, so I played with darker purples and pinks. I also changed up my hair in the pictures, something different from the norm.

Makeup Used:

Eyes: Benefit Recess Creme e/s, MAC e/s: vanilla, trax, beauty marked, mythology, Stila Pearl Palette, Coastal Scents Warm Palette(pink e/s), Smashbox black liner, MAC studio fix mascara, Essence brow powder

Face: Everyday Minerals Med Foundation, MAC concealer, cremeblend blush in Uncommon, gingerly blush

Lips: MAC l/s: high tea, 3N, MAC cremesheen gloss in boy bait, NYC lipliner.

Valentines Love Look:

Is ready for LOVE!

This was my attempted at doing something else to my hair...(twisted side bangs into loose bun)

more eyes closed!

For this FOTD, I decided to use more colors in the eyes (more of the v crease area of the eye) and then less makeup elsewhere ie: blush and lips. I also used MAC's new cremeblend blush (which is awesome) and topped it with gingerly blush. I love the new cremeblend blushes as they give off a nice dewy skin look.

Hopefully you all like the FOTD! I will try to get one more Valentine's look out before the day comes! Enjoy your week!

Mary, that curling iron below is the best! I've tried Revlon and other products but by far, the Conair does the best. It holds my curls in all day w/out hairspair. I think we have like 3 in the house that us girls use. So worth the money!
