We are yet another day closer to the most romantic holiday of the year. I'm continuing onto the third day of my Valentine's Day FOTD challenge. Today's look is also a very wearable one that you could wear out to dinner on V-day, or could even wear during your work day.
I could easily see myself wearing this out to dinner with my boyfriend. UD's lipstick in Rapture that I'm wearing here doesn't really move that much when you eat, so you can rest assured that it isn't going to get all over your face during Valentine's Day.
I also decided to switch up the colors and go with some purples on the eyes. Ok, so I mostly did purple because I was dying to try out my new NYX Baked eyeshadow in Violet Smoke. I swatched it in store (thank you Ulta for putting in testers!) and immediately fell in love with the color. It has a really nice sheen to it that really photographs quite beautifully. I'll be sure to do a full review on it soon. I also used a new Nyx Baked blush in Chiffon. I went for a really soft, light application and applied the baked blush dry instead of wet. This really helped the attention stay on the eyes and lips, rather than the cheeks.
