Be my Valentine? A Valentine's EOTD

I've never been all that into Valentine's Day. There is something about it that seems a bit forced but I'm not one of those people that completely despises it and sees it as a cash cow for Hallmark.

However, for those of you who do get into Valentine's Day I thought I would share with you an idea for an eye look you could wear on the day/night for whatever you may have planned :)

For this look I used a palette which I received for Christmas from my mum (thanks mum!). It's the Shiseido Luminizing Sation Eye Colour Trio in PK403. It contains three gorgeous different toned pinks that are highly pigmented and incredibly velvety to the touch.

I'm usually not a big pink eyeshadow person but I was surprised with how much I actually liked the look of pink on my eyes. Will definitely be getting some use out of this little beauty. It's said that wearing pink on your eyes can make you look sickly, but I don't see it with this look. 

So here it is!!

This look was super simple to create. First I primed my eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion. Then I dusted the lightest pink shade all over the eye from lid to the brow bone. I then added the medium pink to most of my lid (avoiding the very inner corner). Finally I placed the darkest pink shade at the outer v of the eye and blended it into the crease. I also placed the shadows under my eye in the same fashion and joined them up at the outer corner. 

I hope you guys enjoy this look, I think it's super pretty and very appropriate for Valentine's Day!!

Are you guys into Valentine's Day?? What are your plans??

Wow I love the coral-pink shade!! Definitely looks amazing against your skintone.
I'm not sure what I'm up to for Vday yet! It's so soon! I think I might just make dinner :)

@Gianna Thanks :) x

@ArsyParsy Thanks :) It is soon, me and my boyfriend usually just go to dinner or do something low-key. I'm not a very over the top valentine's person though.

Pretty! I think it's really hard to make pink shadows work so well done. I will be overseas this Valentines, so will probably be more romantic than usual haha. I said to him 'no flowers, lipstick instead' !
