Valentine’s Day – Budget friendly & Kim K Style

Valentine’s day is just around the corner and whether or not you are going out with your boyfriend or painting the town red with your ladies, it’s a fun excuse to get dolled up!

I was inspired by Kim Kardashian for this look AND I used less expensive/drugstore products so this is a budget friendly makeup look!





L’oreal True Match Foundation in W6
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Light for under eyes & to highlight
Bahama Mama Bronzer to contour 
Wet n’ Wild Powder in Light to set concealer
Wet n’ Wild Mellow Wine Blush
Hard Candy Tiki Bronzer to Highlight cheekbones and upper lip

Wet n’ Wild Comfort Zone Eye Palette
NYX Liquid Liner
Rimmel Black Kohl liner for waterline & tightline
L’oreal Voluminous Mascara

NYX Red Liner
NYX 511 Lipstick

Brushes used (in order of use):

Sigma E40 – Fluffy Blending Brush
Sigma E25 – More controlled Blending brush
Sigma E30 – Pencil Brush

To get the eyes:


Take #2 and run it through your entire socket/crease. Use a fluffy blending brush to do this. Then work #3 in our deep crease, be a little more controlled by using a smaller blending brush. Essentially you can take #2 almost to your browbone but you want color #3 really controlled. This will make your crease look deeper and your eyes look bigger. Then take #4 on a very small pencil brush and place the product on the outer v of your eye, this will make the color very concentrated. Then take a blending brush and just pat it over the color, this will blend it out but keep the color in place. Add your liner + lashes next. Then take a pencil brush and go underneath your eye with #4 and then blend it out with #3. Literally just sweep the pencil brush back and forth until it’s blended out, it takes patience but it’s beautiful! Kim has a gorgeous pop of gold in that picture so I took my face highlighter by Hard Candy and put it in my inner corner and also underneath by eyebrow, I love getting two uses out of something!

Hope this was useful for y’all and I hope you have a really fun Valentine’s day!
