Sultry Valentines Day Makeup + Outfit Ideas ft. Naked 3

Hey guys!

Today I created a look that is perfct for Valentine’s Day using my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I’ve also created a hair idea and two outfit ideas!

Let’s jump right in.

ImageImageImageImage

To start off, I’m filling in my brows with the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Blonde. 

ImageImageImage

 

Next, I’m going to prime my eyes with MAC’s Painterly Paint Pot. This is going to give me a blank canvas to work with.

ImageImage

 

Now, as always, I’m adding a white cream shadow under my brow and in my inner corners. Just blend that with your ring finger.Image

 

Now I’m going to take a fluffy angled brush and Strange from the Naked 3 and highlight both of those areas.

Now with a fluffy blending brush, I’m going to softly define the crease with Nooner

 

ImageImageImage

 

Now with a flat shader brush, I’m taking Darkside, a deep rosy-gray, and packing this on my lid.

 

ImageImageImageImage

 

To brighten up and smoke-out the lid, I’m going to pat a bit of a lighter shimmery rose on the center area.ImageImageImage

 

Now, in the very center, I’m going to pat a bright glittery rose just to add some dimension.

 

ImageImageImageImage

 

 

Now i’m going to blend the outer edges of the gray with a bronze-y rose, extending it and blending through the crease. You want an ombre effect throughout the crease, but don’t add too much color.ImageImage

 

To further blend these colors, I’m going to blend it out with a deeper matte rose.

ImageImage

 

Now, to deepen the outer V, I’m going to take Blackheart, a black with rose glitter, and place, then blend, this in my outer corner.ImageImageImageImageImage

 

 

Now I’m taking the bronze shade we used earlier and smudge that on my lower lashline

I added some individual lashes for some added drama. Apply LOTS of black mascara.

ImageImage

 

For the face, I’m starting with the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, then using the Kat Von D Lock it Tattoo Foundation.ImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

For Bronzer, I’m going to use a cream for an extra glow. I love the Soliel Tan De Chanel for this.

ImageImageImageImageImage

 

 

For blush, I’m going to use the Maybelline Master Glaze cream in number 10

ImageImageImage

 

 

To set everything, I’m using the new Urban Decay Naked Skin Powder in Naked Light

 

ImageImageImageImage

 

 

For a highlight I’m going to use the Urban Decay Naked highlighter.

ImageImageImage

 

 

For lips, I’m going to mix the Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Sorbet and Too Faced lipstick in Marshmallow PinkImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

All done with the Makeup!

ImageImage

 

 

I french braided my bangs and the back of my hair into a low ponytail and added a black satin bow.ImageImage

 

Now for the outfits.

The first idea is more of a date outfit.

I chose this deep red dress with black polka dots from belk over some black leggings. I’m wearing These black low-heel boots and a Jean Jacket over top, due to the weather.ImageImage

 

 

Now an outfit for those who have to work on Valentine’s Day. AKA ME.

ImageImageImage

 

I changed out the dress for this long flowy purple top from Free People. I also switched out the boots for some Sanuks in a tribal print. Cute, yet comfortable.

 

I hope this helped if you were in a “Heart-Day Rut” or just needed some ideas! Let me know if you try this out! Thanks for reading, an Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

xoxo,

Pres

Must Have Makeup Brushes!

Hello Lovelies!

Long time no see! I’ve been super busy, but things will be back to normal soon. Anyway, today, i thought i’d share with you my MUST HAVE makeup brushes. Not just the ones I like, but the ones I use EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Let’s jump right in.

CORRESPONDING VIDEO:http://youtu.be/dUZ27QxQq7E

*FYI* All sigma brushes seen in this video were purchased in a kit, not by themselves.

In no particular order, I’m going to start with my HOLY GRAIL foundation brush, which I’ve raved about for a while now. It is the Real Techniques (created by Samantha Chapman of PixiWoo) Expert Face Brush. This brush applies my foundation so evenly and blends it in perfectly leaving my skin looking flawless. $9.00, ULTA Beauty

Image

 

Next, I can’t live without my Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. I use this for powder and it picks up the perfect amount of product for setting your foundation. It buffs the powder on leaving an airbrushed finish. LOVE LOVE LOVE. (Comes in a set of 3 brushes) $17.99, ULTA Beauty

Image

 

Next, for applying bronzer, I love my Sigma Large Powder F20 Brush. It is the perfect size for getting that “glow” without packing on the bronzer. LOVE IT! $25.00, Sigma

Image

 

For a contouring brush, I’m never without my MAC 168 Large Angled Brush. It is, yet again, the perfect size for contouring and getting to all those small areas of the face. $35.00, MAC

Image

 

For blush, my must have brush is the Sigma Powder Blush F10 Brush. It’s tightly packed bristles allow for the perfect application of any powder blush product. $18.00, Sigma

Image

 

For Highlighting, I love my Sigma Tapered Highlighter F35 Brush. It isn’t too big and avoids the “overly highlighted” look and gives a natural glow. $17.00, Sigma

Image

 

 

Now for eyeshadow brushes. 

 

For highlighting the eyes, I always use my Tigi Angled Brush. It is not available anymore, but an exact dupe is the MAC 275 ($25.00). This brush can easily get in the inner corner and provides the perfect highlight.  ( I chose a photo of the MAC brush. Again, exact same thing.)

Image

 

Next, I could not live without my MAC 239 flat shader brush. It applied color to the lid so easily and smoothly. $25, MAC

Image

 

For crease color and blending, my go-to is the MAC 217 brush. I cannot say enough good things about this brush. It gets in the crease perfectly, and blends flawlessly. LOVE.

Image

 

For blending eyeshadow, I love my Tigi Blending brush. Again, it is now unavailable, but an exact dupe is the MAC 224 ($24). The perfect blending brush for creating a perfect eye makeup look. (MAC brush pictured)

Image

 

And that it it for my MUST HAVE brushes! I hope this helped you out if you are unsure on which brushes you need. Check out my video linked at the beginning of this post!

For requests, COMMENT!

Have a lovely Day.
