Soft & Coral Valentine’s Day Makeup Look| Step by Step Tutorial
Hi all, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, a special day for all those who are in love. Though I don’t believe that one needs a specific day to express or celebrate love, I don’t even criticize the mood of Valentine’s. It has a certain flavor to it. No matter if you are single or taken, you can enjoy Valentine’s Day in your own way. For those who have a special plan tomorrow and haven’t decided what makeup should be done, here I have a simple, easy and quick makeup-look for you.
My boyfriend and I usually do not go out on Valentine’s Day (we have another special day), but if we ever plan one in future I would like to go for a soft and natural look (you know men, they love bare faces!) with subtle lipstick. That is my kind of a Valentine’s makeup. I have created this look for day time, you can always transform it to a night time glam look just by switching some things up. I’d tell you in the end. Keep reading.

Soft & Coral Valentine’s Day Makeup Look| Step by Step Tutorial
This time, I have started with my eyes before doing my face. Here are the steps to achieve the eye look-
Step 1: Start with filling in with your brows. Use any technique you are comfortable with- pencils, powders or creams. You can’t afford to try new techniques on such an occasion.

Step 2: Apply some eye lid primer. It will help your eye-shadows stay longer and exact.

Step3: Take some dark brown eye-shadow in a fluffy brush/blending brush and apply it right onto the outer corner of your eyes and drag it along the crease. I have used ‘Semi-Sweet’ from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. [P.S. - Your crease is where your eyelid folds.]

Step 4: Blend, blend and blend. Blending is the key. The more you blend the softer it looks.

Step 5: After you are satisfied with the blending, take some lighter shimmery shade in a flat shader brush and apply in right on to the middle of your eyelids. I have used a peach-y shade called ‘Marzipan’ from the Chocolate Bar Palette. [P.S. - Shimmers help in reflecting light. If you’ve planned a candle-lit dinner, shimmery or metallic eye-shadows are must. It doesn’t have to be truckloads of shimmer, just a little hint would do. Subtle shimmers can be used even for daytime looks.]

Step 6: Apply a highlighting colour, close to your skin tone, on the brow bones. I have used the shade 'White Chocolate' from the Chocolate Bar Palette.

Step 7: With an angled brush, apply the same dark brown shade along your lower lash line.

Step 8: Apply the same highlighting color on the inner corners of your eyes. It would make them look bigger. 
Step 9: Apply a liquid liner as close to your lash line as possible. You might not go for a full-fledged winged eye-liner but a little flick at the corners would definitely make your bae fall for you once again.
Step 10: Curl your lashes and apply generous coats of mascara. Remember, mascara is the elixir of a neutral look.

For the face, I have just applied foundation and concealer. Applied some coral blush starting from the apple of my cheeks slightly dragging the brush diagonally along the cheek bones. For my lips, I have applied a coral lip tint which gives the look a softer finish. This look is perfect for both day and night time but if you want to go for a more glam look you can transform this look by applying a kohl on the waterline, slightly smudging it and by swapping this lip color with a red lipstick.

Just as I said earlier, Valentine’s Day is all about you. Being you is most important. Makeup can help you look better but you are what you are inside. That cannot be changed. If you don’t like makeup, be a rebel- rock your distressed jeans and loose tees, ditch the lipstick, be a tomboy. It doesn't matter until you are yourself. Happy Valentine’s Day.I hope you liked the look. Do comment and share your views with me. If you recreate this look, do share them with me. Tag me in your photos on Instagram and I’d repost some of your looks. Keep then stay safe and keep smiling.
