I tried to do something kind of “classic” in terms of makeup for upcoming Valentine’s Day. (I wore the complete opposite practically when my boyfriend and I went out on our early Valentine’s dinner on Monday–I’m sick and didn’t want to lose my taste if we went closer to the date, ha.)  By the way, I put on false lashes in less than a minute! Success!  Finally!  Seriously, I have always been 100% lash stupid.  I felt like dancing ;)  Also, working on a tutorial as you read this… Done!

I used Cash Flow paint pot all over lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner lid, Patina eyeshadow on middle lid, Bronze eyeshadow on outer lid, Smut eyeshadow in outer crease and very outer corner, Bamboo eyeshadow on brow and above crease, Smut eyeshadow on lower outer lash line, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner lower lash line, and Graphblack technakohl on lower waterline. I had Margin blush on cheeks with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour. I wore Russian Red lipstick with Russian Red lipglass on lips.

Valentine’s Day isn’t just about red lips, because there are some fabulous combinations of pink to be used to entice your sweetie or rope in that hottie at the bar.  Here are some of my favorites by MAC! Psst, Girl About Town lipstick (pictured above) is a permanent color, which means you can grab it without fear it no longer is available!  The point of this post is to show you that hot pink lips are perfect for a Valentine Day’s pout, and you can find a shade of pink that works for you.  MAC alone makes several vibrant pink lipsticks that are part of their permanent line, so get ye to the MAC store pronto (and get the artist to try them on you!).

Temptalia Asks You

Do you save the boxes of your beauty buys? Do you immediately throw that lipstick box away or do you keep it for awhile? Maybe forever? If you keep your boxes, do you also keep your products in their boxes or do you keep the boxes saved away? Why/why not?
