Valentine's Night

Hi everyone!

Today's post is a fashion post and it is an evening outfit themed for Valentine's Day. I wanted to keep this outfit quite simple with the colours so that the red would really stand out on the lips and the shoes, so I just chose the classic black because you can never go wrong with black!



I actually based this outfit around having a red lip because I felt that this was perfect for Valentine's Day. For my eye makeup I used the same palette as I did in my last fashion post 'A Very Greek Party', but I wanted to make this look less gold and keep it more simple because I knew I was going for the red lip. I patted 'it's complicated' over my eyelid after putting on a thin layer of 'birthday suit' to tone down the gold and give it more of a matte feel. I filled in my crease using a mixed of the darker colours in the palette and just blended that in. I then used the same colours under the eye for definition and dabbed a lighter colour in the corner of my eye and to highlight my brow bone. And finally, I left my hair simple and straight so that I didn't overcomplicate the look.
