Valentine’s Day Soft Makeup

Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and here’s my Valentine’s Day Soft Makeup look! I used my brand new Smashbox Double Exposure Palette for this look, and couple other new products which I just recently bought. Don’t forget to check out my Instagram to see what else I got besides the palette!

Anyways, for this look, I wanted a soft subtle feminine makeup. The eyes are peachy plum, and defined using black liquid liner. I absolutely love how this turned out! I wore this look out for lunch, and I’m really happy with it. The look isn’t overdone at all, you still look like yourself but slightly better. There’s no bold colors, no overdrawn brows, just a nice pretty simple makeup.

Just FYI, I’m using daylight for my pictures since I don’t have my lights with me. Oh, you guys like my “heart” sweater? I thought I’d wore it for the tutorial since it’s a valentine’s day makeup post.

Soft Romantic Makeup using UD Naked 3

I’m sure you guys are getting tired of my UD Naked 3 obsession, but I have to share this look with you just to show how versatile this palette is. Today tutorial, I’m using UD Naked 3 to create a soft romantic makeup which can be used for daily makeup, date makeup, and even bridal makeup.

This look is very pretty and natural looking. The eyes are made to look brighter and bigger looking, while the rest of the face is kept fresh and slightly flushed. I also skip the glossy lips, and opt for a natural looking lip color. Everything about this makeup is about keeping everything to the minimal.

I’ve done something similar to this look in my Chanel Kaska Beige re-visited post. If you prefer a stronger, more intense eye look, please do check my other tutorials using the UD Naked 3 palette

I’ve also added a Youtube Video tutorial using UD Naked 3 palette!
