WOW, time really does fly when you're having fun! ;) I can't believe it's almost Valentines 2016. I personally have always been a Valentines fan. Even when I was single my girlfriends and I would celebrate together. We'd always get dressed up, usually hit up Fashion Square Mall to treat ourselves to something fun or just window shop (I always had to make a stop at M.A.C ;) then happy hour to girl talk. :D ;) I have so many fond memories of Valentine's Day with my friends, and I hope that even if you haven't celebrated in past years that you'll give it a shot this year. Get dressed up and put on some lipstick! I promise you'll instantly be feeling fabulous! :) ;) Makeup deets below...

If you like to do Wing Liner and haven't tried Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner you're missing out! I got the Mini Trio from Sephora for $25 and I'm completely obsessed!! It comes with a Ultra Black (Trooper), Espresso (Hemingway) and Navy (Baudelaire) and it's Waterproof. The felt tip makes it easy to do both a thin and/or thick eye liner so it's really up to you on which look you want to create. I obviously went with a thick wing liner in this look so it was more dramatic. ;) I usually do a thin liner when I'm not wearing false lashes and then use the thick liner for false lashes.
For all my lipstick fans, M.A.C PatentPolish Lip Pencil is a Beauty Must Have for you! It's a lipstick, lip liner and gloss all in one and it's basically perfection!! I have 12 of them and they're all amazing. Perfect for when you're in a hurry or for touchups throughout the day. You can pick them up at M.A.C stores or maccosmetics.com for $20 EA.
As always please feel free to contact me if you're interested in recommending a makeup look you'd like to see or want to request a specific beauty product review. I would love to hear your thoughts and interests friends! :) ;)
