Valentine’s Day Look | Soft Glam

The very first look for our Valentine’s Day Series is the Soft Glam. Soft Glam was inspired by the tradition of gifting loved ones teddy bears on Valentine’s Day, and thus was achieved using MAC’s Velvet Teddy lipstick. The look is a more casual approach to the otherwise flirty, girly glam that is so popular around this time.

Eve focused on achieving flawless skin by using a mixture of two foundations: a dewy & smooth and a matte & poreless, which yielded a beautiful natural finish. She raves about the MAYBELLINE Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation and the MAYBELLINE Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. To tackle her dark circles, she first applied some orange NYX COSMETICS Dark Circle Concealer and then her MAYBELLINE Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer (can you tell she loves MAYBELLINE??).

She created the bronzed eye using her favorite palette, tartelette in bloom. That perfect wing can be credited to her beloved MAYBELLINE Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner in the shade Blackest Black, which she darkened using my personal favorite, and holy grail NYC Liquid Liner in Black. To take things up to another level of fly, she went with her House of Lashes Iconic™ lashes.

Eve was blessed with beautiful, sculpted cheekbones but she enhanced them using her Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in light. She applied some Milani Luminoso Blush to the apples of her cheeks and proceeded to highlight ’til she shined brighter than the sun, using her BECCA Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed – Champagne Pop. She sprayed some of her handy dandy MAC Fix+ in order to make it all look smooth and less powdery. She then spritzed some Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray to make sure her hard work stayed put all night.

Of course, she completed the look using her Velvet Teddy lipstick, a deep toned beige shade with a matte finish that goes on smoothly and lasts up to five hours, without being drying on the lips.

This is the perfect look for when you want to feel glam without being too over the top. It’s perfect for a low-key date to the movies, or for doing something fun like bowling with your friends!

Have a safe, fun, and makeup-filled Valentine’s Day! Don’t forget to check back for the rest of the Valentine’s Day posts!
