Valentine’s Day Makeup

Valentine's Day Makeup Look

Valentine’s Day Makeup Look

Need a quick, easy and totally achievable makeup look for Valentine’s Day!?  No worries, because I have the BEST option that is not only easy but definitely date approved!  As much as we want to believe most fellas aren’t into heavy makeup looks, so as much fun it is to play with a super bright blue smokey eye that’s better left for girls night.  A killer Valentine’s Day look needs to be a little sweet, a little sultry and glowing!

Get The Look For Valentine's Day

Get The Look For Valentine’s Day

mark. Touch and Glow for an easy makeup look!

mark. Touch and Glow for an easy makeup look!

To Get The Look:

1.  Start with a good concealer!  Sorry, under eye circles will just never be a “in look.”  I used Avon Extra Lasting Concealer in Light Medium.  Preface it with foundation if you’re a foundation kind of person, I typically am not.

2.  Bronzer.  Contour the cheekbones with a little bronzer since a little color in February is necessary.  I used Avon Glow Bronzing Powder.

3.  Touch and Glow.  If you don’t know what mark. Touch and Glow is then get with the program!  It’s the most wonderful (and highly acclaimed) cream to powder multi-tasking pallet out there (and way cheaper than Bobbi Brown Shimmer Cubes!).  Use the top left shade all over the lid then use the bottom left shade to highlight the brow bone and inner corner.  I prefer just to use my finger for this, it works the best for me!  THEN swirl all the shades together with a blush brush and apply the apple of the cheeks.  LASTLY I like to use a foundation brush and just highlight the top of the cheek bones and above the brow bone with a little more touch and glow.  So basically, mark. Touch and Glow is the secret to a killer Valentine’s Day look!

4.  Finish off the eyes with winged out liner using mark.’s new cream liner, Saved By The Gel in Black Board.  Use the included brush for a decently thick line across the upper lash line then flip the brush over and used the angled side to get the perfect flicked out wing.  Get the lots of lashes look with mark. Lash Act in Blackest Black, and don’t forget to curl those lashes first!

5.  Lastly finish off your look with a light pink lip in mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me.  What’s amazing about All Butter Now is it wears like a balm so a soft moisturized lip with a great color payoff.  What could be more perfect for kissable lips for Valentine’s Day!?

Get The Look with mark.

Get The Look with mark.

Ta-da super easy and super achievable look with mark. products.  I love this look because it let’s your face shine through but you still look done up effortlessly.  You’ll look stunning for date night, hanging with your friends or even just to wear to work!  It seriously works for almost any occasion since it’s not too done up.  You can shop the products used here and get them in time for Valentine’s Day (and beyond!)  Now this look is even better on Lucy Hale on the cover of the Lot’s To Love mark. Magalog 2 so if I didn’t inspire you for Valentine’s Day maybe she can!  (only I totally think she’s wearing mark. All Butter Now in Pop Tart instead of Baby Me, but you can’t go wrong with either!)

Valentine’s Day Ideas – Nails

Happy Valentine’s Day… February the 14th!  — Now when arrow’s don’t penetrate Cupid grabs the pistol — Everyone else have that Outkast song running through their head all day like me?  Def not a bad thing… neither is wearing Valentine’s Day mani’s for the last 2 weeks!

Essie Size Matters and Julep Rebel

Essie Size Matters and Julep Rebel

This was my first attempt at drawing hearts with a toothpick since I don’t have a dotting tool, and I have to say, didn’t turn out half bad… now my other hand wasn’t as successful but there’s a reason why I only take pictures of my left haha.  I used Essie’s Size Matters and Julep Rebel for this look.  Are those not appropriate names for a Valentine’s Day look!?!

Conversation Hearts Nails

Conversation Hearts Nails

 

For my second look I wanted to recreate the conversation hearts that are a Valentine’s Day staple!  I used the coming-soon mark nailed it set in sorbet colors (ring and pointer) and last year’s night iris nailed it set (pink on pinkie) with Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos (middle) and Nice is Nice (thumb).  I then wrote my “conversations” with a silver sharpie and topped with a topcoat!  Note to self:  don’t add topcoat until sharpie is dry (hence the drag).  I was a little bugged by the not perfect writing and spacing but overall this is a really fun mani and a reason to wear a different color on every finger, which I never do.  The new nailed it set from mark. will be launching next week at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com or to get it early direct message me to order.

Valentine’s Day Ideas – Makeup

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, and yes its a hallmark holiday, and yes we WILL be theming ourselves out just for the fun of it.  So no matter if you’re just going to work, hanging out at home, or have a hot date there’s always a reason to put your best face forward!  Here’s some inspiration…

Get The Look - Bright Eyes

Get The Look – Bright Eyes

Model is wearing i-mark in shade whisper (on lids), bronze pro in shade pro golden (in the creases), keep it going compact entourage (black shade along the upper lash lines and the white shade along the lower lash lines and lash act in shade blackest black on eyes; just pinched in shade berry on cheeks; and gloss gorgeous in shade showy on lips.

Something like this is great for date night because its simple enough that you don’t look over done but makes your eyes just pop!  Plus using Gloss Gorgeous on your lips as it wears off from dinner it leaves a great stain!

 

Get The Look - Indigo Lined Eyes

Get The Look – Indigo Lined Eyes

EYES Sweep on the dot neutral shade 5 over lids and into the creases. Run no place to run in shade indigo girl inside the upper and lower lids, then across the lids from the inner corner of the eyes to slightly beyond the outer corners. Fill in the wing shapes created with pencil. Layer a black liquid liner on top, Get In Line in Painted Black.  Brush two coats of lash act in shade blackest black onto lashes.CHEEKS Dust just blushing in shade charmed onto the apples of the cheeks.

LIPS Apply lipclick in shade Pink Frosting.

This look is great if you’re wearing pink!  Again it focuses on the eyes but the pink lip is super flattering and festive!
Get The Look - Hot Sauce

Get The Look – Hot Sauce

A tried and true red lip is always a Valentine’s Day go to.  Get the look with Make it Rich Lip Crayon in Hot Sauce.  Pair it with bronze eye and lots and lots of mascara!
