This year, Valentines Day falls on the same day as Chinese New Year so my boyfriend and I decided to celebrate Valentines Day a little earlier.
For those who don't celebrate CNY, the reason we can't celebrate Vday on the same day is because there are like customs and stuff planned out to do on CNY. Such as relative-visiting and all so it's pretty difficult to celebrate Vday on the same day.
Of course by celebrate we don't mean any extravagant. Sure some couples may be romantic and pull out all the stops with Valentines Day celebrations but we kind of consider ourselves 'old-timers' though we've only been together for about.. close to 3 years? A nice dinner out and walking around a little is satisfying enough for the both of us.
In the mood of Valentines Day, I busted out some pink (and some of you know how I feel about pink..). Though it photographs a little purple-ish.
Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel (primer)
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation in Sand Beige
Revlon Translucent Powder (to set)
Urban Decay Primer Potion
(don't remember the eyeshadow combination)
MAC Powerpoint Liner in Engraved
Magical Tannsu Gel Liner in Rose Jelly
88 Color Palette (bright hot pink to set Rose Jelly Liner)
Majolica Majorca Lash Bone Primer
L'ancome Fatale Mascara
MAC Mineralized Blush in Conjure Up
Magical Tannsu Contour/Foundation Palette
ELF Mineral Lipstick in Natural Nymph
MAC Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks
I'm going to admit, this was a 'I don't know what I am going to do' look. Which explains why I can't remember the eyeshadow shades used.
What I mean is, I start out without a clue what sort of a look I want and just randomly add eyeshadows until I am satisfied. Does anyone else do this at times as well?
Oh and it may seem like I have lined my upper lash line with just the colored liner, but in actual fact I lined the colored liner just above a black liner. Mainly because I still want definition from the black liner but wish to add a pop of color on the lid.
As for my outfit, this was what I wore:
I wanted to pair it with heels but felt there was no need to dress up that much so I wore black pumps/ballet flats instead.
The dress is from Hot Miami Styles. It was one of the items that came in my HMS package. I haven't gotten around to wearing all the outfits and taking photos yet so that's why I haven't posted anything about it, but here's a preview on one of the items!
And here are some shots from our dinner (:
That is all!
Happy advanced Valentines Day, it doesn't matter if you have a date or not, it's all about sharing love with people who love you too!
And also a Happy Chinese New Year~ (恭喜发财!) irregardless if you celebrate it or not, it's all part of the festive season (:
Thank you so much for reading!

The decision to wear and feature it is my own. I am certainly not getting paid for it.
