1 Palette Date: A Valentine's Day Collaboration

Maybe not most girls have two or more eyeshadow (or face) palettes in their make-up collection so I collaborated with four other gorgeous beauty bloggers here to give you all a makeup look using only One Face or Eye Palette to get you ready for date night! 
Valentine's Day is coming up soon ladies, do you have an idea what to wear yet? Check out the Polyvore outfits as well that we matched with our looks too!

I used this new palette from NYX Cosmetics 2014 Collection called Dream Catcher Palette: Dusk Til Dawn. This retails for $14.99 at Ulta's website. I couldn't help myself since I had a 20%off Ulta coupon! Those have been coming pretty often have you noticed?!?  Not complaining, the more the better!!! But not on my credit card! I will talk more of this palette when I write a more in-depth review on it, next week. On this post I just wanted to share with you the makeup look I came up with.

Every Valentine's weekends, my husband and I usually just have a Brunch date and stay in at night, while all the other love birds are having their date night. I may just cook dinner for us and also we now make it a tradition to get a cake from our favorite pastry shop in the city called 
Financier Patisserie

I basically kept it simple with this look and definitely can be worn day or night. 
  • Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12hr Brightenning Primer
  • UrbanDecay Naked Foundation in 8.0
  • Inglot AMC Cream Concealer #70 (blemishes)
  • Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer in Honey (under the eyes)
  • theBalm Sexy Mama anti-shine translucent powder (to set)
  • theBalm Cabana Boy blush
  • theBalm Hot Mama (on cheekbones)
  • NYX eyebrow pencil in Taupe
  • Anastasica Brow Wiz in Ebony
  • Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium

  • Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer
  • NYX Dream Catcher Palette in Dusk Til Dawn:
    • It is best to look at the picture below with the labels of the shadows I used as this palette did not have names for each shadows. If there's any confusions, please let me know on the comments below.
  • for Mascara: Tarte Gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara

  • I went for a nude lip since this is a daytime date and I used NYX Butter Lipstick in Pops

  • now you can wear this look for night time also, and wear a bolder lip! I tried to do an ombre lip look using the following:
    • Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless (deep purple color) - on the outer corners of the lips
    • Milani ColorStatement lipstick in Uptown Mauve (purplish-pink shade) - to fill mostly the center of my lips

Since the eye look is very neutral you can definitely play with your lip colors!

I am still pretty new to wearing lashes but go ahead and apply those falsies and bat those thick, fuller looking lashes for Valentine's!!! 

and for my daytime outfit:

*update: If you are interested about the sunglasses featured on this Polyvore collage, you can check it out here: 

GlassesOnline.com.my and GlassesOnline.com.sg has given me the opportunity to style one of the glasses they sell on their website.

Basically I imagined our date is somewhere warm where I don't have to layer my clothes and wear a bulky coat to go out. And if that was the case, this would be the outfit I would wear for our Brunch date. I forgot to add some arm candy to this Polyvore collage but yes I would definitely wear my bangles and layer them on both arms! 

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you haven't checked out the other ladies' looks, here are their links!
