My husband and I don’t really make a big deal about Valentine’s day. With him working a regular 8-5 schedule and me working 3-11pm, our schedules aren’t really conducive to an extravagant celebration. We got each other gifts and we will find time to celebrate when are schedules calm down. But just because I don’t have official plans, doesn’t mean I don’t get fierce! I always like to fierce it up a bit on the actual day of Valentines day….it just makes me feel good! So here was this year’s Fierce Valentine’s Face of the Day.
The Balm Nude’Tude Palette
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink
Jordanna Best Lash Extreme Mascara
I decided to use The Balm Nude’Tude Palette for the eye look. The pinks and cranberry shades in the palette were just screaming for a Valentine’s Day look. I started off with the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink to put down a good pink base for the lid color. Then I used Stubborn, a satin pink, all over the lid up to the crease. I blended the pink out with Sultry, a matte brown in the crease. Then on the outer corners, I blended the GORGEOUS shade Sexy, a matte cranberry. Snobby was used as a brow and inner corner highlight. Then I took Cover Girl Ink It black liner and smudged it out on the upper lash line with Serious, a matte black, from the palette for a smokey liner look. Some Jordana Best Lash Extreme mascara on the top and bottom finished up the eyes.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Corrector
Chanel Tan De Chanel Creme Bronzer
NYC Sunny Bronzer
Jordana Fabuliner for Brows in Taupe
NYX Blush in Bourgeois Pig
Hourglass Luminous Light Powder
For a luminous finish on my skin I used the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. To make sure there were no signs of those pesky dark circles, I used the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Corrector Concentrate. (That stuff is magic! I’ll do a review/demo soon!) To warm up my skin, I used the Chanel Creme bronzer and then NYC Sunny on top for a more defined contour. Bourgeois Pig blush by NYX is a beautiful satin bright pink that adds the perfect flush to the cheeks. To finish off everything and to ensure I looked super fresh, I did a light dusting of the fab Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light all over the face.

A fab day deserves a fab lipstick! These YSL Lipsticks are just RICH! #13 is a pretty classic pink. Perfect for kisses on Valentine’s Day!
