It’s that time of the year again, when love and warmth fill the air. VALINTINE’S DAY! A perfect time of year to break out the reds, pinks, purples and other warm colors from your makeup bags. I have put together two awesome looks one inspired by Neapolitan ice cream, YUMM I know, and the other a very sultry smoky copper eye which is lovely for a date night. Both looks are not set in stone so colors can be changed and swapped to your liking and skills or simply to what you have available, so don’t be afraid to play! Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to tag @curlsandcouture #curlsandcouture and myself @nizzyb #nizzybmakeup to show us your amazing day of love looks!
