Romantic Valentine's Day Makeup

This is number 3 of my Valentine's day looks and I saved the best for last! It is a romantic look that is very classic. I love how glamorous I feel! I would have to say that this look was probably the most simple to create because it was all in one palette. I used Lauren Luke's Smokey Classics makeup palette.
♥ Eyeshadow: Twilight ash and antique pewter
♥ Blush: peach glow
♥Lips: Cranberry stain

Things used not in palette:
♥ MAC Fluidline in blacktrack
♥ MAC Lashes #20
♥ Buxom Mascara
Have a Happy Valentine's Day!

Conversation Heart Inspired Nails!

I know I know I'm going Valentine's Day crazy! But I am in such a festive mood with this year. Valentine's day is about expressing love and affection, so why not look cute while your doing it? (no pun intended hehe)

These nails were inspired by the candy conversation hearts. The products I used were:
♥ Essie Nail Polish in Lovie Dovie
♥ Sally Hansen black Nail Polish Pen
*** Hold the pen very steady and pressing too hard can ruin the nail polish already on your nails.

Long Time No Blog...

Well I dropped the ball on blogging regularly even after I went to bloggy boot camp in November. This sounds like a lame excuse but I blame my absence on the holidays. School is going great! I love everything about it. I have been "on the floor" as its called at school since the end of October. "On the floor" just means I work on actual guests. I found out that the makeup artistry class is scheduled for May. I am beyond ecstatic! I feel like I almost forgot that makeup was the whole reason I went to school and started blogging in the first place. I have been working on some Valentine's Day makeup looks so stayed tuned!
