EOTD: Marsala Valentine's + Get The Look
I have decided that I will wear Marsala- inspired makeup on Valentine's Day and I'm sharing my rendition with everyone today. I could've gone for a wine eyeshadow to complete this look, but this color doesn't look good when worn on the eyes, honestly-it just makes the skin appear reddish and irritated. It's looking 'Hot' in a bad kind of way. :p
A great alternative to wine eyeshadow is warm/dark pink eyeshadow with a wine or berry undertone-it's got that Marsala appeal, but makes your complexion and eyes look blushing instead of irritated.
Here are the products I used to create my Valentine's FOTD/EOTD:

Step 1: Using an eye shader brush, grab your warm/dark pink eyeshadow and apply all over from the lower lid to the above crease.
Step 2: Grab a Bullet Brush, dab on a matte chocolate brown eyeshadow, and dot the color on your outer crease.
Next, grab a blender brush. Blend the eyeshadow gently to soften the color and within the outer crease only-remember to leave the dot intact somehow. I intentionally did that for more drama and definition. You can blend the matte brown eyeshadow towards the above crease though, but remember to keep the intensity of the eyeshadow soft and subtle on that area.
Step 3 is a two- part step.
Step 3 A: Apply your usual black eyeliner on your lower lash lines first.
Step 3 B: Grab a flat liner brush, dip on a matte baby pink eyeshadow, and apply a soft line right on top of the black eyeliner. You can also substitute with a glitter liner. This technique will keep your eyes looking fresh just in case you get bloodshot, irritated, or inflamed eyes when sporting this look as the pink eyeshadow can make the situation look worse-it will also make your eyes look bright and bigger.
Finish off with an icy pink eyeshadow on your brow bones.
