Valentine's Day Look featuring Honeybee Gardens

Valentine’s Day is a fun reason to get dolled up whether you’ve got a special someone to celebrate with or you’re just a fan of the gorgeous shades of pink and red, frilly hearts, and sweet treats that are often associated with the holiday. We’re not big on Valentine’s Day in my household because the 15th is my Dad’s birthday so we like to celebrate him instead but I still love creating romantic looks during this time of year so I wanted to share with you my current soft and pretty look that I’m loving using Honeybee Gardens products.

I like to keep my look fresh but elevated with super soft and feminine shades. I used three PowderColors Stackable Mineral Colors on my eyes. I used Flirtatious, a light matte pink, all over my lid and up to my browbone. I then blended Chai, a lovely matte pale creamy coffee shade, through my crease and finished with a bit of Angelic, a sparkly iridescent pink, on the lid for a touch of shimmer and shine. I finished up with several coats of mascara for long, dramatic lashes.

On my cheeks I applied a healthy dusting of Complexion Perfecting Blush in Euphoria. Euphoria is a gorgeous shade that can be described as a peachy pink and it’s such a flattering, healthy looking flushed shade and I can’t recommend it enough. I think it would look stunning on every skin tone! I tend to go quite heavy handed with blush, because I like having color on my cheeks, but I make sure to blend it all out so it looks as natural as possible.

I used Brown Sugar, a light matte brown, Effortless Eye Liner on my brows and also under my lower lashes for a bit of extra definition.

I’m wearing the Truly Natural Lipstick in Romance, a medium neutral mauve with red undertones, on my lips and I am so completely in love with this shade and the way it looks on. I think it’s my favorite Honeybee Gardens lipstick! It’s a perfect color that brightens up my complexion and looks so good on! It always wears beautifully, like all of the Truly Natural Lipsticks do, and feels so silky soft and soothing.

So there it is, my fresh and flirty look that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day, really! What do you have planned for Valentine's Day? Anything fun? Leave a comment below and let me know!
