Step 1: Before I begin on the eyes, I put my foundation on, contour my face and drow my eyebrows. This way I only have my eyes and lips to do.
We want your eyes to be kept quite simple, so that your boyfriend can focus on your beautiful eye color and your lips because they will stand out! As I have blue eyes, I decided to use colors that are in a pink shade. If you have green eyes I would advice you to use brown colors and if you have brown eyes, you could use colors in purple tones. I applied all over my lid a light pink shade color called “strange” from the Naked Palette 3 from Urban Decay. Then I moved on to step 2.

Step 2: Now for this step I decided to emphasize my eyelid by using a light brown eye shadow called “Nooner” because I wanted to make my eyes stand out a little. You can decide to keep it simple or if you like having a darker eye color, then you should apply this technique.

Step 3: This step will make the whole difference to the makeup look. I used a dark pink mixed with a darker shade of brown and applied it at the outer corner of my eyes. You can decide how dark you wish to have it depending on your taste.

Step 4: Apply a line of eyeliner, I will let you choose how thick you want it to be. Then add a big coat of mascara and this is your eye makeup done! Now let’s focus on getting these lips attractive. We want him to kiss you immediately when he sees you don’t we?

Step 5: Very important: LIP LINNER. This is essential girls, because your lipstick will last longer and your lips will be much more defined. As my eyes are kept quite simple, I wanted to add a darker color on my lips to balance the whole makeup look. That’s why I went for a dark pink color on my lips. Now it is your choice to decide what color you wish to have, you can go even darker, redder or keep it simple with a nude color.
