If you feel ready, follow the steps of the pinky watercolor makeup tutorial for Valentine’s Day here!
Step 1: Even the simplest makeup look starts from the base, that is the face. Make sure you give the perfect flawless finish to your skin by applying a base, a good foundation and using concealer to hide some small flaws. Afterwards, give a touch of color to your look with the help of a blush tone and bronzer. If you prefer more translucent looks, you may skip the latter.
Step 2: Shape your eyebrows perfectly with a brow kit.
Step 3: Prime your lids. Define your crease with a medium brown eyeshadow (Buck from the UD Naked Palette 1). Blend this higher with a warmer toned brown (Sienna from ABH Lavish Palette). For a seamless ombre effect, continue blending higher with a flash color (Orange Soda from the same palette).
Step 4: Highlight the area under the brow with a light shimmery eyeshadow or a highlighter.
Step 5: Using a white watercolor fill the entire lid, creating a sharp shape. Apply a white pigment with a golden glow (Parisax Star powder in Vannuatu). Next, apply a pink pigment to the middle of your lid (NYX Chrome Eyeshadow in Gheisha).
Step 6: Line your lids with black gel eyeliner. With the same liner, emphasize your waterline. Afterwards, blend this line with a brown eyeshadow.
Step 7: Apply black mascara. For a more dramatic look, go for falsies!
Step 8: Create the perfect kissable pout by applying a peach lip liner, a nude lipstick and a pink tone over it!
What else do you need to charm your beloved one on your Valentine’s Day date? Of course, a lovely smile and a sweet kiss!
