I didn't realize Valentine's Day was coming up SO soon until a friend reminded me this past weekend. Even though it falls on a Sunday, the nice thing is that us Canadians have a long weekend, which means extra time to celebrate and relax with your loved one(s).
As much as we love doing a smokey look, guys hardly appreciate the effort. Why not save the glamour for a girls night out and go for a subtle, elegant look this Valentine's Day? It will go perfectly with what ever you or your beau may have planned for the day (even rock climbing), and you won't feel out of place or uncomfortable.
I was recently introduced to Mistura Beauty Solutions. They sent me a few of their staple items to try, and I was immediately impressed with the packaging. The whole line of cosmetics is reasonably priced, very well pigmented, and you can tell the company paid attention to what goes in the products, because of the high quality ingredients.
Lets begin with the eyes. I use my eyebrows to shape my face and match the look I want to create. Typically I'd mix a lot of shadows together to make a unique shade, but to keep things simple I used a quad by Mistura Beauty, and I was able to achieve exactly what I wanted to do!
Eye products used:
- Benefit Cosmetics Brow Zings Shaping Kit in "Medium" (eyebrows)
- Mistura Beauty Solutions Bella Seta Eye Shadow Quad in "Fashionista"
- Eyeliner and mascara of your choice
If you're going to invest in something from this line, I highly recommend the 6-in-1 Beauty Solution, one of the few beauty kits Mistura has assembled for multi-purpose products. This includes: a retractable brush, eye and lip applicator, Vitamin E lip treatment, full-sized bottle of Luminada Illuminating Moisturizer AND a 6-in-1 Beauty Solution, a mineral-based magic powder that eliminates the need for foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, lipstick and eyeshadow.
Interesting concept for sure, I used it on my cheeks and immediately noticed a beautiful glow.
Face products used:
- Mistura Beauty Solutions 6-in-1 Beauty Solution kit
- Foundation, blush and bronzer of your choice (if you need to use it)
Lastly, I went for a tinted gloss that I knew would stay on through the night and was easy enough to apply when needed. Here I'm using Mistura Beauty's Plum & Glow in the shade "Gwen". Hard to describe the colour, but I'd say it's a mix of purple, brown and nude, and it applies beautifully!
I hope you found this Valentine's Day Elegant Look super easy and fun. Be sure to tag me or share a link if you try this look, or show me what you come up with. I'd love to see!
