GRWM: La Niña Fresa's Rose Petal Beat for V-Day
Hello, Cherry lovers! It’s me, Sonali, coming at you with a basic but cute Valentine’s Day makeup look. Whether you rock it on a date or you rock it at the office, it’s a great starting point to be in the spirit of love.
1. Wake up your face!
First off, wash your face! Wake up! And prime! You gotta prime, sis. I’m still using Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original ($24).
2. Next, on to the eyeshadow.
Let’s get into it! Using a fluffy brush, buff a soft rose color all over your lids. I’m using “Dreamy” from Lime Crime’s Venus 3 eyeshadow palette ($38).
Next, go in with a slightly darker rose. You want to apply the darker rose from the outer corner and stop when you are about ⅔ in. Leave the inner corner alone. We’re trying to create a rose petal effect. For this shadow I’m using “Bliss” from the same Venus palette.
See what I mean? The lighting is distorting the colors on your left, but you can see the gradient in the eye to your right.
Now, we’re going to do the same thing with a deeper red but this time we’ll stay on the outer third of the eye. It’s okay to be a bit messy. For this, I’m using the shade “Izafa” from Juvia’s Place Festival Palette ($20).
Looking like petals now, huh? Quickly do your brows, I always use Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Dipbrow Pomade in Granite ($18).
3. Next, we wing it out.
I stay using Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Crème Color in Jet ($18).
4. Blend, blend, blend.
And at this point, you can grab an eyeshadow that’s your skin tone and blend out the edges. Do the same gradients for your under-eyes.
5. Amp up the drama.
Add mascara. And lashes, but I hate lashes!
6. And you’re pretty much done.
Do the rest of your face how you would normally, set it, and call it a day. You can go on your cute date or whatever!
7. However, you can also keep going!
I’m using NYX’s Vivid Brights liner in “Vivid Petal” ($7) to create that graphic effect. Basically, take your time and stay close to your water line.
Cute! Now just put on your outfit and head out! 🍒
