Easy Flirty Eye Look for Valentine's Day

Hi! I got a request to do a Valentine’s Day look, so I grabbed my reds and pinks and came up with this super easy eye look that looks like it took twice as long to put on as it did. Plus, it uses a few different tones of pink and red, so you can take your pick of just about any pink or red lipstick you have on hand, or go for a classic mauve or nude.

I know pink eyeshadows can be scary, because you don’t want to look like you have pink eye! But done right, pinks look so soft and fun without straying too far from neutrals.

Check out this look, and see how it pairs with different lip colors:

For this look, I used my newly-purchased Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette. I LOVE this palette so far. It’s amazing how versatile it is for having so many pinks and reds. I paired the palette with a single eye shadow I have from Lorac called Rose.
