d is for danger + xoxo

Good Morning and welcome to a special edition Valentine's Day collab!

Today I'm teaming up with Alexus from Alexuslaneiaxo {beauty, fashion & lifestyle blogger} to bring you a Valentine's Day makeup look! She's incredibly sweet, genuine and has become a sweet friend of mine through our love of all things beauty and fashion. + She's from Kentucky just like me!  I have to give Alexus a huge thanks, because I actually won the eye shadow palette I used in a giveaway on her Instagram account...if you don't follow her you definitely should ---> @alexuslaneia (you can find her on Twitter too!)

To create this look I used mostly neutral eye shadows, because I wanted the lip to be the star of the show. But instead of using the usual tans and browns I used peaches, orangey reds and burgundy. Alexus and I used the Lorac Pro Mega2 palette which was limited edition and offered for holiday 2015. Unfortunately, this palette is only available via Ebay & Amazon now, but I'll be linking very similar colors below! Here are some eye shadows  I'd suggest from MAC:

All over the crease // Malt ---> All over the lid // Arena ---> Corner of the eye // Nylon ---> 
Outer crease // Rule & Red Brick  ---> Outer V and lower lash line // Sketch 

For my liner I used my all time favorite tattoo liquid liner by KatVonD. I find the brown to be less harsh with my skin tone and hair color. I wear it all throughout the week, usually minus the cat eye, for work. The falsies I used are Double Wispies from Ardell. I featured them in a post last week here.

The STAR of this post is a beautiful red lipstick, perfect for Valentine's Day, called d is for danger from MACI paired the lipstick with Burgundy lip liner, also from MAC. I love Burgundy, because it's not too bright and can be worn with other lipsticks that aren't necessarily red. {d for danger} is a matte lipstick so make sure you exfoliate & moisturize your lips before you use! This color will last a very long time, but will sink into the cracks of dry lips if you don't use a lip balm beforehand. 

For a full face makeup tutorial you can see my post here.
