Makeup Tip Monday: Romantic Looks!

On a quest to find Romantic Makeup Looks?  For that special day.. Valentines <3

Here are a few that I was inspired by and I think are super sexy and scream "romantic" <3

Cat Eye Makeup and Nude Lips


Kim Kardashian, I always love her makeup!! In this case matching up the charming cat eyes with nude lips, always a gorgeous look. If you're fond of a similar combo make sure you learn the art of creating the most flattering cat eyes with the use of a high class eyeliner. Be sure to create an eye that flatters you and keep it neat. Also to perfect this look be sure to select the correct nude shade of lipstick or gloss! These are indeed some of the most inspiring and popular ideas to embrace when preparing for a romantic date or event.

 Copper Eye Makeup
Blake Lively, another celeb that always has great makeup! Copper metallic on the eyes and the lips are a beautiful combo! Tint your lids with this fab shade to make your glimpse even more seductive and appealing. To achieve the desired and overwhelming effect, finish with a with copper/brown lipstick or gloss that would give a kissable and sight-pleasing impression to your lips. Finish with a coral blush !

Here are a few of my recent and past "Valentine Inspired tutorials"
