Hello, loves! Happy Valentine’s Day! In honor of this day of love, I thought I’d share an OOTD. Initially, this post was going to be strictly a makeup look, however I remembered I had the perfect outfit for the day! It’s been so long since I’ve written a post like this, and I forgot how much I enjoy sharing them with you all. Whether you are in a committed relationship or a single pringle like me, I hope you can find some happiness today and celebrate the love that is so abundant in this world. Enjoy the OOTD!
Pink, Purple, and Poised
Once I knew Valentine’s Day was coming up, I really wanted to do a pink inspired makeup look. It quickly turned to a more purple look, but I’m not really mad about it. I started out with the Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay, which is completely made up of pink shades. I personally love the looks you can get from this palette and I use it quite often in the spring time. I then went in with the two dark pink shades from the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette. This really brought out the perfect pink/rosey shades to the outer half of my lid. Lastly, I used the Purple Palette from Kylie cosmetics, which I wrote a full review of (you can find that here), and I was definitely not impressed with it. However, the one shade I truly do love I used today on my lower lash line and a bit in my outer V. I finished everything off with some black Stila waterproof eyeliner and the Better Than Sex Mascara (what else would I use? lol)
For skin, I used my usual Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and translucent powder to set everything in place. As for bronzer, blush, and highlighter, I went in with the Benefit Hoola bronzer, Nars blush in Orgasm, and a pinky toned highlighter from Kylie Cosmetics (let me know if you guys want a full review of her highlighters, I’m very torn on them too). As for lips, I went for a simple tinted chapstick from Burt’s Bees in Pomegranate.
For the Love of Yellow Hearts
This top I found at Topshop a while back. It’s a cropped blouse with a little tie in the front. I normally am not a fan of these types of tops, but the print completely won me over. The small black and white dots with the yellow hearts made for the perfect look today! The zipper running down the front gives a very edgy look, which of course I’m obsessed with. Sleeves are a big deal to me, and the one on this top definitely don’t disappoint! I love the length and combined with the flowy material, makes for a flattering ensemble.
I paired this top with my favorite jean skirt (which I thought was appropriate for the weather today, but it actually ended up raining!) I added these black heeled sandals and I think it went super well with the top. For accessories, I kept it simple with medium sized silver hoops. I love how casual yet put together this look is. You could definitely spice it up with some more serious heels if you’re going out at night or throw on some tennis shoes if you’re simply running errands.
I hope you all enjoyed this little Valentine’s themed OOTD. Let me know what you think of the makeup and outfit down below in the comments. If you have any questions, feel free to ask as well! Have a great day everyone!
