I´m not sure i´ve ever done a Valentines-inspired makeup look.
At first, i was confused about what colours to combine ..... frankly, i didn´t want red because purple is my colour of love. At the same time, i wanted to keep it simple *hence the very light brows* . I almost left the eyes bare, but the last minute i thought i should try out the Sonia Kashuk highlighter as an eyeshadow to see how it would work....it did.
So that´s my simple Valentines day glam up there paired with red lips because i didn´t have the shade of purple i wanted . Do you think purple would have looked better?
It´s funny when you want to buy a particular shade of lipstick and someone comes and says to you "But you already have 3 purple lipsticks". How don´t they get that there are about 50 shades of purple lipsticks and you just have to buy all of them???? Yeah, because one day you might want to wear a plum purple lipstick and another day only an eggplant purple will do. Some other day, you have the byzantium purple on your mind and the next time you will want to wear a mulberry purple.....you get it now?
