Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching & I’m wearing bright red & pink lipstick any chance I get! This week is all about the matte red lip – perfect for that big Valentine’s date – but if bright pink is more your style then last week’s look in right up your alley. I usually keep my eyes pretty simple when wearing a bold red lip, but I wanted to switch it up and pair it with smudged smoky eye. This may be a little too much for some people, but since I kept my skin clean & shimmer on the eye to a minimum I think it’s a perfect sultry balance for date night! The best part about this look is that the more smudged the eye makeup the better so no matter how good (or bad) you are at applying eye shadow & liner this will look amazing!
