FOTD: Spiced Chocolate

Here is another Valentine's day inspired look. I think this is different than most Valentine's Day looks, but it would work for those of you who don't like pinks or purples. I was inspired by the fact that chocolate is very popular for Valentine's Day and I also wanted to incorporate some red undertones (I really dislike straight up pink eye makeup for Valentine's, for some reason). I can definitely see myself wear this for a night time look, a date perhaps? (Ironically I wore this tonight for a date. Completely non-intentionally).

Products Used
-Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
-Fyrinnae 'Te Amo' Eyeshadow (optional)
-Fyrinnae 'Crimson Ghost' Eyeshadow (optional)
-MAC 'Cranberry' Eyeshadow
-Wet n Wild 'Vanity' Palette 
-L'oreal Lineur Intense liquid liner
-L'oreal mascara
-Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream
-MAC 'On a Mission' Blush
-Estee Lauder 'Modern Mercury' Powder Gelee
-MAC Viva Glam Cyndi Lipstick

How to Achieve this Look
This look is incredibly easy. You just have to apply a cranberry shade on the entire lid (I used MACs Cranberry). Then apply a matte, chocolate brown on the outer V and the lower lash line. Just to make this more interesting, I applied Fyrinnae 'Te Amo' on the inner 1/3 of the lid. I also applied 'Crimson Ghost' in the inner corner. Apply liner and mascara. My lashes were really gross today so added some falsies.

 Oh and then I decided to wear my awesome Star Wars jacket :)

What do you think? At first I thought the lips would be too much for the eyes, but it wasn't overpowering at all. I actually really liked the outcome! 


  1. You look gorgeous <3 Love the eye makeup & lip color!

  2. I love this! I'm definitely going to try this for a date sometime. And I think the lip colour compliments the eyes very well, gorgeous look overall! As always! ;)

  3. Your eye makeup is gorgeous as usual. :) And i really love your lippie shade!

  4. You look ridiculously hot in those pictures, if you don't mind me saying. I am totally going to do this look on the 14th, I'll be on holiday with my man and think this would be a perfect look for going out to dinner with him!

  5. very petty look, love these colors

  6. Great job! I love when eyeshadows really make brown eyes look like chocolate or coffee, it's so pretty <3

  7. This is such a pretty look! I like how you didn't use pinks either - pink for Valentine's Day is so overrated, imo. I love the lip color with the eye makeup! It doesn't overpower it at all :)

  8. The warm browns are right up my alley. I really like it with the pink lip!

  9. You've chosen some gorgeoius colours here. Looks fabulous!

  10. love this unique V-day look! i really hate really obvious pink makeup for vday too hahaha this is a really subtle look that's perfect! =]

  11. I think they look great together, I love a pink lip with heavyish eye makeup.

  12. Wow, MAC Cranberry looks beautiful on you. The pigmentation is amazing. Thanks for the tutorial, too! Really helpful.
