"Naturally Pretty" ♡ Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial

This year for Valentine's day I thought I would create a look using mostly natural, neutral shades from the Urban Decay Basics palette (LOVE!). But no Valentine's Day makeup would be complete without pink, right? In this tutorial I decided to go for some hot pink shadow in an unexpected place to give this look a hint of rosiness and that "blushing" look. I think hot pink eyeshadow can be worn in a natural way in the same way that a hot pink blush can give you that youthful glow. The trick? Use a small amount on a fluffy brush and blend it over some neutral brown shades, it will dilute the color and help it to blend.  Top it off with some flirty liquid liner and you have a modern take on an ultra-femme look. Don't forget to watch the video tutorial included in this post to see the techniques step by step!
