Valentines Lips & Nails
Valentines Day is right around the corner so if there are any guys reading this, which i highly doubt, get yo roses and chocolates ready! valentines never really has been a thing for me and even though i have a boyfriend we always spend the day eating ice cream and cake in our comfy pants watching the great gatsby and thats all i’m asking for. being the make up freak i am, i still like rocking some rather festive nails and lip combos and i felt like sharing them with you as they are very nice if you are actually going on a date or if you just want to glam up yourself because thats what it is all about, right?
so the first combo is a truly florescent pink. i personally love bright pinks all year round but especially on valentines. i think pink is such a nice color to wear on that day and my favorite true bright pink is mac impassioned. its such a nice finish as its shiny but opaque and not glossy. it stays on forever and it it does fade, it fades evenly without leaving the lips patchy. the perfect nail polish, which is just as pink, is essie bachelorette bash. its a very fun and bright color but not too much in your face. perfect with such a bright lipstick.
the other bright lipstick is still a statement color but its a bit more muted and perfect for those who love a bit more of a statement lip but don’t want to go all out. its the kevyn aucoin matte lip cream in forever. this is by far my favorite pink and favorite matte formula. its very light and feel so good and creamy on the lips. the color is the perfect flirty pink with more coral undertones and it looks amazing on. my nail polish to go with it is a bit more of a lighter bright pink. its essie funny face and it has been my favorite throughout the last summer. i love it and it goes perfectly with my favorite pink lipstick.
i love nude lips just as much as i love bright lips so i had to include a nude set. my lipstick of choice is mac creme cup. its very light and creamy on the lips and it is a very wearable pinky nude that looks amazing on most people and goes with every eye make up ever. it kinda ties every look together and i love that. a lot. one of my favorite nude nail polishes lately has been sally hansen in mauve along. its a mauve which means it looks good on the nails even though you are pale, just like me and its very laid back and just looks neat and lovely.
do you have any plans for valentines? let me know and let me know what kind of make up you plan on wearing.
