We did our big celebration on Friday night, and I wore a gold/bronze eye with a little plum paired with a deep reddish-brown matte lip. We usually get brunch on Sundays, but we usually head out pretty early and I end up doing makeup when I get home (also, so I can save myself a little embarrassment of not having two totally different eyes on in public, ha ha).

I’m taking a break from hubby and baby and treating myself to a big swatchfest at the downtown stores. Will involve lots of Tom Ford, and a mix of NARS, Guerlain, Clarins, MAC 🙂 Will wear hot pink for Valentine’s day–hot pink top with pink blush and lips ( MAC Hollywood Cerise)

Because I don’t celebrate it, I decided to go team….BLUE. Deep blue, as in Zoya Neve on my nails. Tomorrow, some MAC Heaux lipstick and I haven’t a clue yet about my eyes! But I’ll work some deep blue in somewhere.
I LOL’d when I had a mental picture of people in the brunch eatery basically trying to figure out what they just saw!!! Or did they? Perhaps it was all just their eyes playing tricks on them! ?

I was working today (it’s past 6pm Valentine’s Day as of writing), so nothing super glamorous. Neutral brown eyes, a nice 60s cat eye, terracotta pink cheeks, BECCA Moonstone, and super glossy lips from this really thick, glossy lip balm that I have. Simple but flattering!

We went to Jamie’s Italian last night and we really enjoyed ourselves! I wore a black dress with a magenta shrug so I decided to go for a pink and purple eye (from UD Urban Spectrum – Omen, Backlash and Voodoo) and wear my new NARS lipgloss in Priscilla. I had to blot the lipgloss once so it wasn’t too bold and it looked lovely, more of a stain. I put on Gwen Stefani’s blushes in Cherry and OC with a light hand and my fiancé loved my look ?! For my base I used the new NARS Velvet Matt skin tint in Terre Neuve, it was a good colour match for me, altho perhaps not the best consistency for my currently dry skin. I used Max Factor’s Masterpiece waterproof mascara on my top lashes only, and set my base with NARS Nico. Very pleased with how it turned out! Happy Valentine’s to everyone! ?

Btw, I really loved your FOTD (and outfit, but I know I’m a bit too *fluffy* to pull something like that off myself!)?

YW! Very cool with the lime eyeliner!
Oh yeah! Especially in light of the fact that my daughter and I owned Hammies! ? My gigantic sink-beast kitteh *poots* a bit much, aka “Smelly Cat”?

I went cutesy for my going-out-for-drinks look last night, with shimmery shades of pink on eyes and cheeks. Pinks can go a little ruddy on me, especially on the eyes for some reason, so when I applied my Ever After Looxi highlighter, I dusted it over my shadow too – my hope was that it would keep it purpley pink instead of pulling orange – I think it worked! Anyway, and BANGS! Yep, I did it. So I went heavier on the eyeliner since they were sort of competing with my eyes. We are doing dinner tonight but I’m not sure what I will do yet; maybe back to my usual gold/bronze look. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’m wearing a red eye using makeup geek bitten and cherry cola, smoked. Blush from rocky horror Mac collection, and NYX matte lip cream in Monte Carlo. ??Also, I’m wearing a red sweater with black legging that have studs on them, Toms sparkley black shoes.

We went for a relaxed dinner last night; I went urban decay’s Anarchy on the lips, very subtle pink blush, and a very light sheer hand with a pink/taupe/mauve-y eye – mac swish, shale, haux, quarry, and yogurt with a tiny bit of black smudged in the lash line – sometimes I appreciate less intense shadows like swish when I want a little color instead of a lot.

I don’t have a Valentine this year. But, I’m heading to Ikea to get a new mattress finally and looking for other odds and ends.I haven’t gotten my face on yet. Probably going with Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel quad and try to work on my cat eye( we’ll see on that). Cheeks- I’ll have to use one of the my new MAC blushes from the Flamingo collection. I’m for sure using my new Tom Ford parent lip color in Erotic! I see a problem with those coming on!

I plan on playing around with some neutrals on my eyes to keep it super simple and a nude lip. I don’t want to risk a mistake on valentines day so I am keeping it super simple.

All matte eye with my Too Faced Natural Matte palette, soft winged eyeliner, Shame on You blush, UD Streak highlighter and bronzer on cheekbones, Too Faced Born This Way foundation in Vanilla, and Mac lipstick in Velvet Teddy. It’s much like my everyday look but softer and just more romantic because I was working today.??

I have a breastfed 2-week old so basically I put on a necklace and headed out the door to be able to take advantage of the max 2h I had!
Earlier in the day I put on some tinted moisturizer and highlight to my cheeks with tinted lip balm hehe

I didn’t celebrate, but I can share my makeup of the day anyway.
Armani Maestro eyeshadow in Gold, Armani liquid eyeshadow in emerald, a bunch of MAC eyeshadows from the crease and up to the brows that are slightly enhanced by ABH Dipbrow in Dark Brown and set with ABH brow gel. UD Perversion liner and MJB mascara in Blaquer.
Foundation Benefit BB, The Big Easy in the lightest shade, Kiehls SPF under eye illuminating creme and TF lipstick in Malik, something that can seem like an odd choise, but it’s actually quite close to my natural lips.
I have som blush on, but don’t remeber what I grabbed.

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s day!
