Here’s my, way overdue, mini Valentine’s Day look book. Since I had attended a Valentine’s party before the actual day, I have two outfits to show you. The main feature of my first outfit is actually the makeup!

I was inspired by naturallybellexo‘s heart eyeliner tutorial on YouTube. I didn’t have any heart stickers though so I freehanded it. I don’t think I did that bad! I paired the eyeliner with some subtle eye shadow just to give some more shape to my eyes, and a peachy “nude” lipstick. (I’ve been looking for an almost perfect nude for my skin color.)
I tried to keep it pretty simple so my eyes may be the focus of the outfit. I wanted to keep to the usual Valentine’s Day colors like red and pink. I don’t like pink though, so I wore a red turtleneck instead. I had originally wanted to wear my red pencil skirt but the top I wanted to pair it with wasn’t clean.
I also wore some heels, something I rarely ever do. These heels are luckily super comfortable!
For the day of Valentine’s a decided to wear something a bit more festive. Working at Marshalls helped me find the perfect blouse for the occasion.
This blouse was my focus of the outfit, and my way of trying new things. I’ve never had a blouse (that’s not an exaggeration) with such a noticeable sleeve cutout or neckline. I just couldn’t pass up the little hearts, and it’s subtle enough to be worn any other day. I also got a lot of compliments… Yes!
(You may notice that I’m wearing my blue polka-dot pants in this picture. I wasn’t able to take a picture of my accessories on the day of.)
Of course, I had to wear my new watch with this outfit because the colors all go together. To match metals I also wore a silver ring with some Celtic knot design. My real name, Brenna, is an Irish name so I thought it would be cute to have.
Here we end at the shoes. They’re sort of plain but have a very clean and cute look about them. Again, they’re also very comfortable because I think comfort and practicality should be top priorities.
I hope you enjoyed my mini lookbook and have a nice day! Don’t forget to show your loved ones that you care at any chance you get. Valentine’s Day is not the only day love should be expressed!
