Valentine's Day is coming up fast and it's time to start cranking out some makeup tutorials!  This Rose Pink and Gold Contouring Makeup Tutorial is all about creating a perfect base, flawless contour, and soft and demure eyes to wow on your Valentine's Day date night.

I am so excited to have been picked to share in Maybelline's Looks To Love campaign.  Maybelline has always been my go-to affordable beauty brand because the quality and consistency of their products are comparable to those of the high-end brands.

I braved the single digit cold weather outside and took a trip to Walmart to grab the Maybelline products I knew would look amazing in this tutorial.  For me, a Looks to Love makeup tutorial had to include the Maybelline Master Contour Palette to compliment and add some structure to my Rose Pink and Gold eye look.  I also grabbed Maybelline's Dream Velvet Foundation and their Dream Blender, which together left my face flawlessly smooth.

The Face

Primer, Foundation and Concealer

1. I moisturize my face with a hydrating face cream and my under eye area with a refreshing and cooling eye cream.

2. I prime my skin with an oil-free face primer.

3. Using Maybelline's Dream Blender, I apply Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation in the shade 60 to my entire face.  This foundation is a gel-whipped formula that gives me the perfect medium coverage and velvety soft finish.  Maybelline's Dream Blender is the perfect tool to use when applying this foundation because it gives me flawless application and the tip allows me to reach into the curvy areas of my face.

4. To highlight and conceal I use a light and warm tone concealer in a V-shape beneath my eyes, in the middle of my forehead, down the bridge of my nose, on my chin, and on my eye lids.

Powder Setting and Contour

1. To set everything I take a setting brush with yellow tone powder highlight shade and place a generous amount over the areas that I highlighted with concealer.

2. I also add a generous amount to my jaw directly below my contour line.  I allow the extra powder to sit on my skin for a few minutes to "bake" before brushing off with a soft fan brush.

3. I take the contour shade from the Maybelline Master Contour Palette Medium to Deep and use the brush included in the kit to contour beneath my cheekbones, underneath my jaw bone, along the hairline on my forehead, down my temples, and alone the parallel sides of the bridge of my nose.

Blush and Highlight

1 Using the Maybelline Master Contour Palette, which includes bronzer, blush and highlighter, I apply the blush shade using a blush brush to the apples of my cheeks and take it back over my contour line.

2. Using the same fan brush as earlier, I then apply the highlight shade from the Maybelline Master Contour Palette to the tops of my cheekbones, my forehead just above my brows, and the bridge of my nose.

Brows

1. I shape my brows with an eye pencil in a dark brown/black shade.

2. I fill it in with a dark brown brow powder.

3. Finally, I set my brows into place with a clear brow gel.

The Eyes

Primer and Transition Shade

1. First, I prime my eyes with an eyeshadow primer potion.

2. I take a light matte peach beige shade with a fluffy blending brush into the crease of my eye and start blending upward.  This is going to be our transition shade.

Crease, Lid and Outer Corner

1. I then apply a medium matte rose brown directly into my crease with a small tapered blending brush using windshield wiper motions.  I reapply this color a couple times to build the color, making sure it blends into my transition shade but stays directly within the crease.

2. Staring in my inner corner and using a flat shadow brushI take a soft pink shade and apply it across my lid from corner to corner.  I do not take this shade any higher than my crease shade.

3. Staring in my outer corner and using a tapered crease brush, I apply a burgundry with red shimmer shade. I apply this to the outer 1/3 of my lid and softly blend this into the soft pink shade to eliminate any harshness.

4. I also take the burgundy shade outward slightly to where I will be drawing my wing line, and then very carefully into my crease about 2/3 across my lid.

Wing and Highlight

1. I take a small angled brush to draw on my eye liner using a gel jet black eyeliner. I get as close to the lash line as possible and press down on the lid to create a thin and even line.  I wing this out when I reach the outer corner of my eye.

2. I then use a metallic champagne shade to highlight the inner tear duct with a fluffy blending brush.

3. I also take the metallic champagne shade on a small flat shadow brush and highlight my brow bone just below my eyebrow.

Lower Lash Line, Mascara and Falsies

1. Using a small flat shadow brush I take my crease shade and place this under my entire lower lash line as close to the line as I can.

2. I then go in with our outer corner shade and concentrate this color on the outer 1/3 of my lower lash line.  This gives the entire eye look a nice and rounded smoky effect.
 
3. I take a gold shimmer shade and apply this alone my entire lower lash line over the other two shades.
 
4. I apply a very black mascara to my upper and lower lashes.

5. I choose a pair of full and fluffy false lashes with medium volume and apply them using a waterproof lash glue.

The Lips

For this look I wanted a flirty and girly color that would compliment the soft pink of the eyeshadow shades.

1. I line and fill in my lips with a dusty mauve pink liquid lipstick.

2. I set the entire makeup look with a facial setting spray that will keep my makeup looking great and lasting all day.
