Have I ever told you I love blush? Just kidding, I know I have.

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I thought this blushed makeup look would be perfect for the occasion. This look is more on the natural side (I even skipped mascara) with a radiant base, fluffy brows and blushed eyes, cheeks and lips.

I know wearing blush on your eyes might sound intimidating, but just look how nice it looks! And it’s so easy to achieve. Keep on reading for step by step photos and instructions.

Blushed makeup look tutorial

glowy base - vita liberata beauty blur mixed with foundation

Starting with the base.
For this look I wanted my base to be very radiant and light. I mixed *Vita Liberata’s beauty blur with my foundation, to sheer it out and get an overall glow to my skin. Beauty blur is an awesome product for that.

*Charlotte Tillbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter

After that I neutralized my dark circles with *NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Custard.
To brighten the under eye area, I added a dab of *BeautyAct Concealer, shade 01C, on top of that.

I wanted my brows be as lifted as possible for this look. I think they looked nice and fresh with the look. I used a strong hold hair gel and brushed them upwards. If you’re looking for a brow gel that does that, I’ve heard *Benefit’s Brow Setter offers great hold (it’s on my buy-list).  After that I used a blonde brow powder to fill them in a bit (Clarins Brow Duo in Tawny Blonde).

Then I added blush. I recommend using a cream blush, that you can just blend with your fingers.
I applied blush on top of my cheeks and all the way to my lids. I used my favorite cream blush, Kjaer Weis Above and Beyond cream blush. Now this is optional, but I applied *Vita Liberata’s highlighter in Rose under that blush, to get a bit more pink pearly sheen to it. It wouldn’t have been quite that glowy without the highlighter under it, though the cream blush itself has some sheen to it.

How to pick the right blush color to make this look work for you?
I used a slightly warm, coral blush shade to go with my neutral yellow undertone. If you have pinkish cool undertones, I would recommend choosing a cool shade.

Finally, I added GOSH Romance lipstick to finish off the look. I also smudged the edges of the lipstick a bit with my finger to get a softer look. I’ve been doing this a lot lately, smokey and blended are not just for the eyes.

Similar lipstick:
*YSL Satin Lipstick, Nu Fatal

Sometimes as a beauty blogger I get this pressure of coming up with all these complex looks. But in reality, simplicity is beautiful. And wearable. I actually felt very beautiful in this look and couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it before. Needless to say, I will wear this more often from now on. It even works nicely with a face mask, bringing the attention to the eyes.

Would you try this look?

Valentine's Day Makeup Idea Tutorial

Last weekend I checked the date and realised we’re already on the second chapter of 2020. Just like that, we survived January. I mean, it was a good month, but oddly grey and rainy.

This year more than ever I want to do makeup tutorials for all the seasons and even though Valentine’s Day is not huge in my country, I wanted to take the time and celebrate it at least with makeup.

Using pink was expected, but necessary. Did you know pink eyeshadow actually looks beautiful on all eye colors? It’s especially flattering for blue and brown eyes. It also works great for green, but for green I would choose a deeper redder shade.

This look is pretty easily achievable, because I used bronzer to shade, a blush all over the lid and a highlighter as a light shimmer. So chances are, you already have the products and you don’t have to go and buy pink eyeshadow. Also, when you a choose a lighter blush color, it’s not going to be as intense. That’s going to make it more wearable, if a super bright color is not your thing.  In that case, check out my last year’s Valentine’s Day look as well, which was a bronzed rose gold kind of look.

  1. Start shading the eye with a light brown color. Apply this shade to where you want the pink color to end, which is usually your crease or if you have deep set or hooded eyes, it’s the area where I have my brush in the photo, slightly below the brow bone. This helps to blend the pink to your skin tone better. I kept the color quite light. I used a big fluffy brush, Zoeva 221.
  2. Start packing the pink color all over the lid and to your lower lashline as well. I used elf 201 flat brush, which is actually pretty great (and super affordable). Blend using circular motions and a fluffy brush. I could have also used Zoeva 221, but I used a rounder fluffy brush from Ecotools, because it’s more concentrated.
  3. Apply some highlighter to the center of your lid and your inner corner. This brings some more definition to your eye and helps to brighten up the look. I used a new highlighter from NYX, which has a weird gel-like formula. It works great applied with a finger like this. It actually feels like a metallic eyeshadow.
  4. Tightline and line your eye using a black pencil. Add mascara and you’re done. Especially if you have a lash lift done to your eyelashes (it’s the best).

P.S. If you’re wondering why my brows look different and so good (no? just me?), it’s because I recently got a brow lamination/brow lift done. It’s a beauty treatment that I’m already obsessed with.
