never too much Sparkle 'VALENTINE'S GALORE- PRO OR ANTI-VALENTINES' makeup challenge

Another Never too Much Sparkle's challenge. I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's day as i find it a far too commercialised holiday where people who are in a relationship feel obligated to buy things for their loved one.  I dont have an issue with shows of affection i just cant stand the fact that say a dozen roses triples in price a week before the 14th. (oh and dont get me started on roses that have no scent. So many so called high quality roses that look pretty have no scent. Terrible.)
Luckily my partner feels the same!

So i decided to do a very strong look using pink, which isnt a favourite colour of mine. I wanted it to be dark, sexy, gothic and a little edgy. Not soft or romantic  So you could say this is an anti Valentines look!







Eyes -Morgana Cryptoria Socket To Me Primer first, then Illamasqua Succumb over eye above crease. Urban Decay Asphyxia applied to inner side of lid, then Urban Decay's Deluxe eyeshadow in Sting applied over rest of lid and blended.
Barry M Dazzle Dust in Cherry red applied in crease and under the eye, winging it out at the edges.
At the eyebrow edge Yaby Pearl Paint in First snow.
Essence Black gel liner used along the eye edge.
Eyebrows shaped using Famous Matt eyeshadow in shade 12.
Elf Studio waterproof mascara in black.

Lips - Sleek Pout Paint in Pinkini with Cloud 9 blended out from center.

Sparklz and shine - thankyou! The Pout Paints always remind me of tubes of paint so i have to play with them that way hehe

This is sexy as hell. I love it! Are you sure you don't want to wear pink more often? It looks amazing on you.
I also agree with you 100% about what Valentine's Day has become. My boyfriend and I despise the whole thing.

Olgiepolgie - thanks hun! I use pink with other colours, not just purely pink lol. Urban Decay's Asphyxia and Sting are awesome shades but id mix them up with purples normally hehe

My boyfriend's show of utter love is letting me have the xbox 360 at my parents house where im staying again soon...as my fav game Mass Effect3's demo is out on the 14th. thats true love as he too loves Mass Effect!
