Hey lovers! What did you get up to for that ever-so-important ‘day of love’, Valentine’s Day? Although I generally dislike the tokenism of such a day – Little Ms Love-in over here is akin to showing love whenever she pleases thank you very much – I still can’t help but be swept away by notions of love hearts and pink fluffy bunnies and roses and all that shit.
I put together this cute little V-day inspired on Feb 14…not because I believe in the virtue of hallmark celebrations, but basically because I never need an excuse to wear a pink wig and put red love hearts all over myself. Why should we only be limited to one day of the year?
With this look I experimented with some of my Milani pigments on the eyes, in hues of fucshia and deep plum for the eye socket. I highlighted the inner socket with some shiny bright white and lined the eyes with a deep inky black liner from Inglot. Love this eyeliner, its one of my faves.
Lips were a mix of tints from my red palette and lined in black blended in to the red for an ombre effect. I also drew on some hearts around my neckline outlined in black and shaded in greys to make them stand out against my skin tone; just because. I stuck the red foil mini hearts on with clear Duo eyelash glue.
I then took some silly photos and bam, here you go. Hope you enjoy!
And remember, no matter what day of the year it is, its always ok to show someone how much you love them. Surprising and unexpected gestures at any time go a long way to show someone you care, yes? Good.
