Have a Va Va Voom Valentine's Day!


Hello everyone!
Yes, the title of this blog is inspired by one of my favorite Nicki Minaj songs (Yay for Idol tonight!!) Anyway, maybe you've seen my 2013 Valentine's Day makeup tutorial posted on YouTube- thanks so much for all the nice feedback! I got to thinking that there are so many different looks that would be great for Valentine's Day or any date night... so I thought I'd look back in my videos are share some of my picks with you! 







What kind of a look do you enjoy for Valentine's Day? Do you shoot for something subtle and sweet or more dramatic? Do you like bold lips or are they a no-go? 


Also I would like to make a shout-out to a highly talented person on YouTube! I initially found Allinicoleee because she informed me that she made a portrait of me using eyeshadow-- what?!? YES. She shared this speed drawing video with me and I was blown away. I thought wow, what a talented artist!! And I was just super shocked that she would take time to do that picture of me, of all people. Then I subscribed to her YouTube channel and started browsing around and realized she's also a very talented makeup artist! I told her last night- I had a mini-marathon watching her videos! Not only is she great with makeup, but she knows how to communicate and I am just drawn to people who can clearly, and very genuinely get their point across. She just seems NICE! I would encourage you to subscribe & show her some love! 


Check out her favorites, outfit videos, and reviews-- it's all good! I just wanted to spotlight this tutorial because I thought it was just so beautiful and might also be something you want to try for a special occasion! :) 

Daily Nuggets...
  • I got on a video ROLL this morning! Shot 3 videos including one for my vlog channel- planning to post that one tomorrow! 
  • Also tomorrow is Beauty Broadcast Live on Ustream! Join me at 9am CST for random chat and fun. If you're having a Valentine's Day beauty emergency I'd be happy to take your questions!
  • I love the Simpsons Tapped Out app for iPad. I admit it!
  • I'm starting to hear the birds chirping outside again... almost feels like Spring but I think it'd gonna get cold again soon!

  3. Great looks Emily! I don't celebrate Valentine's Day and never have, I'm kind of a rebel! I do celebrate love all year though. My partner and I don't need a special day for it. We have a weekly date night and I could use any of these lovely looks for that. Thanks again, great post :)

  13. Oooh, love the Go-To Smokey Eye and the Smoldering Plum looks, at least on you since I haven't tried them just yet!

    In general, I like to do dramatic eyes and subtle lips, but I do enjoy bright lips too, especially fuschia!
