Happy Valentine’s Day!
For the second look for Valentine’s Day this year, I wanted to do something more neutral as I understand not everyone can wear pink eyeshadow, as I used in the first look here. As I was looking through the eyeshadows, I ended up picking up Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette. After not using it for a while, and playing around with different looks for a couple days, I came across this beauty of a combo.
Not only is it more subdued than some of the other smokey eyes you may find out there for Valentine’s Day, but the great thing about this type of look is how easily it pairs with a bolder lip. Naturally, I chose a bright beautiful pink, but wearing red would also be quite appropriate.
And if you don’t have the Naked2 palette, click here for MAC dupes.
I wanted to do something special for the below tutorial, so I’ve included a cute intro for you especially for V-Day; enjoy!
