Valentines Day Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Get the how to video!  Scroll down!
With Valentines Day right around the corner I thought I would create a romantic look with a bold pink lip for you to try.  Bold and bright lips are all the rage for this spring and now is a great time to start implementing this look.  Berries and coral's are especially popular.   The cool toned pink lips really made my blue eyes POP!  Here are the steps and the makeup used:

Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin (a pale shimmer pink) all over the lid concentrated.  And softly applied up to the brow bone. Also apply this color to the inner tear duct area and inner third of the lower lash line.
Urban Decay eyeshadow in Busted (a dark grey purple) in the outer V and brought down to the lower lash line in the outer third only.
Urban Decay YDK (a high shimer medium toned purple pink) over Urban Decay Busted that you just applied and bring it softly to the middle thrid of the eye.
*All of the Urban Decay eyeshadows are from the Naked 1 and 2 palettes. 
Red Cherry #747M lashes cut in thirds (I have a tutorial coming out on this technique.  But for now do the normal application method of lashes.  To see a tutorial on how to do that here.)
Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara (black)
MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in On the Hunt (darkest black).  Apply this over the strip lash line.

Temptu Airbrush foundation in 005 and 006.  Any foundation in your color will do.
MAC Plum Foolery (a warm purpley color with a hint of shimmer) on the cheeks.

MAC Beet (a bright red pink) Lip Liner
MAC Girl About Town (a bright pink with a hint of purple) Lipstick
NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Beige (soft purple tinted pink), to turn the high voltage pink down a slight notch.
