Valentine or no Valentine, Valentine's Day will always have a special place in my heart! This year I wanted to create a fun look that resembled Valentine's Day and share it with you all. I also wanted to highlight some of the trends that have been very prominent lately such as choker necklaces and floral prints. To start, I purchased this entire outfit at Charlotte Russe! This off-the-shoulder floral top definitely caught my eye and reminded me of Valentine's Day. I also wore a black, body-con mini skirt, black over-the-kneet boots, and tied the outfit together with a long studded choker necklace that I tied into a bow. There are so many ways to achieve a Valentine's Day inspired look and this is just one way to utilize today's fashion trends to celebrate a fun holiday.
One thing you should know about me is that I have a HUGE passion for makeup. I wanted to create a Valentine's Day inspired look that wasn't just some red lipstick and a smokey eye. Instead, I created a sparkly gold eye makeup look with blended hints of pink.

I created this entire eye makeup look using the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette. I strongly recommend this palette to anyone! It is so good for not only dramatic looks but also everyday looks as well. It comes with 18 shades that are either sparkly, shimmer, or matte. The colors blend so easily and can be used in a variety of ways. I used the shade "24K" - Top row, 3rd shade all over the lid and blended the pinky shades "Flamingo" and "Bossy" into the crease. To top it off, I darkened the outer crease using the shade "BlackTruffle" and then I brushed the shade "Bae" onto my brow bone and on the inner corner parts of my eyes.
Aside from my eyeshadow look, here are some of the other products I used:
♥ Loreal PRO Matte 24 Hr Foundation
♥ Loreal PRO Matte Powder
♥ Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Kit
♥ Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flushed Blush in Sparkling Bellini
♥ BECCA Cosmetics Highlighter in Champagne Pop
♥ Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

♥ PURE Cosmetics Black Liquid Eyeliner
♥ STILA Huge Extreme Lash Mascara
♥ Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner stick
♥ Colourpop Lipglosses in "Calypso" and "Flitter"

Whether you're spending your V-Day with a date night, a night out, or by yourself, I hope you all can express your individual styles this holiday and I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day! ♥ - Brooke
