Loving this Look: V-Day Makeup

TBD recently posted about the perfect V-Day look, so I thought I'd share their tips here at PPT:

Switch from foundation to a tinted moisturizer. Or add face lotion to your foundation to thin it out. Apply it with a sponge for sheerer coverage. Spot correct any blemishes with concealer.
Skip eye shadow. Using a black kohl liner in your dominant hand, reach around and above with your other hand and place your ring finger directly on top of your lid, then gently lift it upwards, pulling your lash line up and away from your eye. (You can also do this by placing a guitar pick or business card on your lash line then lifting it upward.) Then trace your liner back and forth along your lash line, directly between your lashes but NOT above it.  This way it’s not detectable but still adds definition by framing your eyes.
Use a “pet-able” mascara, meaning one that is soft and not stiff or starchy. Apply one coat and make sure to comb through.
Opt for a cream blush instead of a powder one so it looks more natural. And choose a shade that mimics a flush, like you’re blushing.
Opt for a tinted lip balm if you have to have a little color, or just chap stick. You also want them to be soft and healthy, so make sure to give them a little scrub first by brushing them with a toothbrush or disposable mascara wand.
