Just in time for Valentine's, today's Look of the Day is awash with romantic pinks and reds for getting into the loving spirit. Whether you view February 14th as a cherished holiday or an overblown nuisance, the upside of the holiday is that you can sport some romantic makeup, regardless of your stance! And the chocolate. That's another perk ;)
The star of this look is my brand new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic, a rich, glossy warm-toned red that has me totally smitten! I complemented the lip colour with some warm, red blush (MAC Frankly Scarlet) and a mixture of pink, coral, and mauve on the eyes (thanks to MAC eye shadows in Sushi Flower, Paradisco, and Quarry). I don't sport red cheeks and pink eye shadow very often, but I liked the effect! Warm, flushed, and- of course- romantic!
Here's the end result:
|A romantic braid to go with the Valentine's makeup!|
Here is another shot of the look, followed by a list of products used to create it!

And a few more photos of the look:
C'est tout! This look was fun to create because I don't often get to play with pink and red hues on the eyes. It was a refreshing departure for the norm and I was happy with the results! Bold and romantic, without being over the top.
