Makeup Wars: My Valentine's Look.


It will be Valentine's Day in ten days, and it is about time that we start planning that special night out. That's why the Makeup Wars bloggers have taken on the challenge of creating our Valentine's Day looks.

My Valentine's look is actually a look I will be wearing on the night before Valentine's Day, as that is the anniversary of my engagement.  My husband picked up my ring, and I guess couldn't wait until the 14th to ask me to marry him, so we got engaged on February 13th. That was 24 years ago. That seems like forever. Wow! I'm old. Anyway, that is when we celebrate Valentine's Day and our anniversary. Back to makeup. My look takes into account the things that my husband likes about my makeup, when he comments on it. I usually hear, "Wow, that's some bright lipstick" or "You're wearing too much eye makeup". But when he compliments me, it is always about the same thing; glowy skin, flirty lashes or glossy nude lips. So this look is for him.
