Soft, Romantic Valentine's Day Makeup look

For me, romantic looks are very easy on the eyes, wearable by most and paired with warm, almost glowing skin. Looking romantic should look like you just had amazing sex IMO. :-D  I love wearing flowers in my hair as it adds an extra touch of femininity and is perfect for a romantic look.
Let me know if you would like to see a more dramatic Valentine's Day look.

In case anyone noticed and was wondering, I dyed my roots purple a few days ago. The rest of my hair is still black.

  2. I love this look! Of course I think you should do a bolder look with the pink crack eyeshadow I loved so much. PS I need to know where you got that so I can order some of my own. I loved that stuff!

  10. I LOVE this look, it is one of the best V-Day looks I've seen. Plus your roots are awesome and definitely compliment this look further.

    You're gorgeous, it makes me scream (not in envy, but more like pride strangely enough).

  29. Wow, thank you all! I've been dying my hair soft black for years and wanted to try something different. So I dyed my roots purple instead of black. You can't bleach black or dye over it, so that's why it turned out this way.

    Cosmetic Viking,
    No, you can't! I kinda need it. :-P
