Sweetheart Makeup Items


I'm not one to get excited over Valentine's Day, but this year I decided to do a post about my favorite flirty-girly makeup products. So this isn't so much of a Valentine's Day post, it's more about sharing some of my favorite products. Leave me in the comments below some of your "sweetheart makeup" products!

valentines day makeup | what is in my makeup bag | sweetheart makeupFirst up, when I originally thought of this post I knew I had to include the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. The tones in this palette are gorgeous! There is a perfect range of mattes and shimmers to create a light mauve look, or you can use the darker shades to create a smokier pink look. For some people this may not be a practical everyday palette, but I've really enjoyed playing around with the shades when I want a flirtier look.

Another product, which has been one of my favorite mascaras recently is the Maybelline Lash Sensational. This product does not only fit into this post idea because the color of the tube is pink (and adorable!), but because this creates gorgeous flirty lashes. It has a curved brush which creates a perfect curl, and adds enough length and volume to make your lashes look full. I also love the formula because even the non-waterproof version doesn't flake or smudge all day! I spoke more about this in my Top 5 Mascaras post.

For a gorgeous glow, I love using the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Illuminator in Opal. You put this wherever you want a glow, blend it out with a beauty blender or a small stipple brush and you get the perfect subtle glow. I love Becca's highlighters, and the liquid ones just add an added effect!

If you are looking for a pop on the eyes, I love using the L'oreal Silkissime Eyeliner in Highlighter. It's a gorgeous rose gold shade that is very creamy and pigmented- it is perfect for putting in your inner corner or waterline to brighten your eyes.

This product is a newly discovered favorite of mine, and I recommend all of you checking it out! It is the NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Lace Detail. When I think of flirty makeup, I don't think of red lips, I think more along the lines of nudes and pinks. The color of this is gorgeous, it's a perfect nude pink that is not too warm or cool. The formula is also amazing- it's kind of a mousse texture, which dries down matte, but is not at all drying. This is the first one I have tried from this product, but I would love to try more shades!

To add a gorgeous flush to the face, I love using the Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Baby Love. The packaging alone of these blushes alone scream "girly" and "flirty"! Depending on your skin tone there are many shades of this you can try for your ideal look, but I love this because it adds a nude flush to the cheeks. These blushes are very pigmented and long wearing, I love them!

This isn't really a makeup item, but the Versace Bright Crystal Perfume is the perfect perfume to finish off your flirty look. The scent of this is very fresh, flowery, and I think a perfume most people can enjoy. I suck at describing scents, but next time you see this while you're shopping, I highly recommend giving it a whiff. This is my all time favorite perfume- every time I smell it I fall back in love with it.

  9. I think the shades of the Naked 3 palette are so fitting for Valentine's Day, so is the Nice lashes the Lash Sensational gives you. I've been using that mascara religiously lately and loving it.

  12. Great picks! I love the Maybelline Lash Sensational as well. I also keep trying to convince myself I don't need the Naked 3 because I have 1 and 2 but those pink shades are just so gorgeous. Buh bye 80 bucks haha.

  15. Are the Nys Lingerie products like the matte soft lip creams or more like the Nyx suede lip products? I like both but I was curious. Hope you had a great Valentine's Day!
