Sultry Valentine Date Night Look (A Collab Post w/ BeautyinBattle)

Hello gorgeous ladies!

It's finally Valentine's Day tomorrow! What are your plans? For sure, you're going out with your boyfriend for dinner. Or maybe party all night with your girlfriends in a club! Whatever your plan is for tomorrow, I'm sure you want to look your sexy best.

So I have come up with a look that's great for a dinner date or on a girls' night out. It's a sultry smokey makeup that's gonna leave your guy (or any guy in a club for that matter) drool! It's not the usual black or silver or purple smokes. Since it's gonna be heart's day, I fused a flirtatiously beautiful burgundy shade into the look.

How I Did It?
I applied a oil-absorbing primer on face to keep oilies at bay.
I put on a mattifying foundation and then covered blemishes with concealer and afterwards set with powder.
As for the eye makeup, I first primed the whole eye area including the lower lids.
I put on makeup bases in white and dark brown to hold the powder shadows and make them more vibrant.
Then I patted on a shimmery burgundy shade on the lids, placed a matte black eyeshadow on the outer V and extended to the crease area.
I blended the black shadow and used a matte dark brown shade as a transition color. I placed the same burgundy color on my lower lids not reaching the inner corners.
I dabbed some frosty rose-colored eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eyes and on the brow bone.
I lined my eyes with a black gel liner and created wings at the end. I used the leftover product on my eyeliner brush and applied on the outer two thirds of the lower lashline. I also lined my waterline with a black pencil liner.
I curled up my lashes, put on some volumizing black mascara on both upper and lower lashes and placed some upper half faux lashes.
I contoured my cheeks, jawline and nose bridge for that chiseled face effect. I then put on some berry-colored blush on my cheeks, highlight on the highest point of my cheeks, the nose bridge, and my cupid's bow.
As for the lips, I first applied a red lip stain, then lined my lips with natural-colored lip liner, then placed a mauvey-pink lipstick. The combination gives a my-lips-but-better effect.
