Pretty in Pink : Valentines Day Makeup Look #1

Valentines Day is just around the corner and I'm really excited. Some people might think it is silly, overrated and over commercialised but for me, it is the one day of the year when I can look forward to spending a rare quality time with my fiance without feeling guilty of having fun without our kids. I admit I am a sucker for flowers and chocolates but Valentine's Day is not just about spoiling someone with expensive things. It is about expressing love and affection, showing your appreciation and making big romantic gestures.. not only on Valentine's Day but everyday. But who are we kidding? In this day and age, meeting a genuinely old-fashioned romantic guy is very hard to come by...and for someone like my fiance (no offense honey!) who even though sometimes can still surprise me with his charming thoughtful ways, he is generally not the romantic type. And I accept that. So in special occasions such as Valentines Day when he makes an effort to make it a memorable one for me, I am just simply grateful to be treated extra special:) 

So in the spirit of this occasion, over the coming weeks until Feb. 14, I've decided to share with you a few different looks that I think would be perfect for valentine's day, whether you are in a relationship wanting to impress your special someone or whether you are single just wanting to look and feel beautiful for yourself xD
