FOTD: Valentines Day

Posted on: February 15, 2014

My husband and I rarely celebrate Valentines Day on the actual day itself, mostly because eating out, parking, and traffic are all such a hassle. We just celebrate on some other day, and this year we took our daughter along for a Valentines family day.

On the actual Valentines Day itself, I had to go to work. I didn’t want to let the day pass without somehow looking a bit dolled up! I amped up my “office” look a bit by going for a somewhat smokey eye look. My go-to eye palette was again the Saizen Eye Shadow in Brown.

I used #3 as the overall lid color, and #4 on the crease and outer corner. Underneath all of that I used the Crystal Cream Eyecolor to put a bit of sparkle.

I am no expert, but if you want them to be more intense you can apply them wet by rubbing the brush.applicator.your finger on a wet wipe before dabbing it into the eyeshadow. That works really well for me, makes a huge difference, but be careful not to over moisturise your applicator, too much isn’t good either 😀

I’d definitely say you’re an expert! Your eye looks are just divine and inspirational! That said, thank you for the tip. I’ve tried wetting my brushes before in an attempt for more intense colors, but it was a huge failure. I now know I’ve probably used too much water.
