Valentines Day Eyeshadow Look – Anastasia Beverly Hills

Happy February everyone!

It’s not only my birthday month (I’m turning 20 on February 24th, I’m old, I know!) but Valentine’s Day is also right around the corner! And since a lot of you beauties are probably going out on a date I thought I’d give you an inspiration for an easy, not too heavy but still pretty eyeshadow look that’s perfect for your special day! I used my all-time favorite eyeshadow palette, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. I could talk about how much I love those colors for DAYS, they’re just so pigmented, they blend out so well, they have very little to no fallout at all, they last forever (I got mine a year ago and look how much I still have left and I use this palette almost every single day) and the colors are just beautiful. I can honestly say you can use every single one of these colors on a daily basis. You might think ”oh no, they’re too bright or too colorful for an everyday makeup look”, but believe me, they’re not, as long as you apply them with a light hand of course. The best 40 dollars I’ve ever spent, and this palette was worth every cent. Yeah, I guess you could say I’m obsessed.

But anyways, let’s get started!

 

Step 1: Use the shade ”Love letter” as your transition color with the blending brush of your choice (I used the Zoeva 228). Make sure you blend the shade towards the end of your brow basically to make your eyes look bigger and to give them a nice shape.

 

 

Step 2: Use a flat brush (I used the Zoeva 232) and dip it in this lovely lavender color called ”Buon Fresco”. Put it on your entire lid except for the inner corner area of your eye. Try to blend it in with the other color because those shades look absolutely beautiful together.

 

Step 3: To deepen up the crease, the outer ”V” in particular, and to give it some more dimension, use this nice, dark brown shade named ”Cyprus Umber” and use a small crease brush (I used the Zoeva 231) to apply the color. After that you have to blend it out really well to avoid harsh lines.

Step 4: Use a concealer brush and apply some concealer (I used the Sephora collection concealer in the shade Buttercream) on the inner corner of your eye and blend it out towards the middle. You could even call this a mini cut crease.

 

Step 5: Use this amazing, shimmery shade called ”Vermeer” and apply it on top of the concealer. Personally, I like using my finger because I think it makes the color look more pigmented, but you’re free to use a brush as well if you like.

Step 6: Mix the shades ”Love letter” and ”Buon Fresco” and apply them very close to your lower lashline. After that, use the same concealer brush and the same concealer you used before and draw a sharp line under your eyeshadow which will make it look more precise and it will also help you get rid of any fallout you might have had (even though that probably won’t happen with this palette because it’s just freaking awesome).

Step 7: Apply some mascara and some false lashes (I used the Ardell lashes 161), but make sure those aren’t toooo dramatic because you still want this look to be kinda natural. I mean you’re going on a date, not to the Academy Awards, right? 😛

And that’s it already! Wasn’t that hard, was it? 😉

I hope you guys enjoyed my second makeup look! I have to say, I enjoy creating makeup posts a lot, so if you have any requests let me know and I’ll try my best! Again, I am not a makeup artist, just a makeup lover 🙂 Let me know if there’s anything I can improve, if you liked this look and definitely tell me about your plans for Valentine’s Day in the comments!

Thanks so much for reading and see you soon!

Love, Esther

  1. What a gorgeous eyeshadow palette!! ❤ I absolutely love the look you created with it – I can see why you're obsessed with those colors, haha!! Also, I know next to nothing about contouring, so if you have any tips for beginners on that (or anything else beauty-related for that matter, haha!), I would love to read that! haha thanks for sharing ❤

    1. It‘s my absolute favorite! (As you can probably tell haha). And I‘ll see what I can do! I have to admit that it was hard for me to contour for a very long time because I‘m just really pale and I just couldn‘t seem to find the right shade for me (that doesn‘t look orange), so I‘m still kinda new to the contouring world. But I‘m sure I will post something on that in the future! Thank you for your comment ❤️

      1. ❤ I have yet to even try contouring, haha, but I'd love to if I knew which tone/s fit my skin, and where to apply each shade, etc! Finding the right ones for your skin tone is important because you can either look too tanned, pale, or like you said, orange XD so embarrassing! Awesome! And you're welcome ❤

    1. Well, I wouldn‘t say “cure” but I definitely found a product that works for me and I also made a post about that, it‘s called the Lush Herbalism review, if you wanna go and check it out. My skin is a lot smoother and clearer now and my acne scars also faded so maybe it will work for you as well!
