To make myself clear, I will never be anti V-day (Valentine’s Day). How could I?! It’s my birthday!!! I understand why some people are, but I definitely consider myself lucky…even if I didn’t have a Valentine growing up, I still felt special because it was my birthday. My dad would get me, my sister, and my mom corsages to wear for the day, we’d go out to dinner (my choice), and I would always be my parents’ special Valentine :-) My mom likes to tell the story that I didn’t understand that the class wasn’t having a party on Valentine’s Day for me/my birthday until I was like 6 (whoops! hahaha). Well now that I’m married, I have a Valentine for life, and couldn’t be happier about that.
So now the reason for this title…GlamourDollsEyes is having a contest on Facebook for the best “Anti V-Day” Look. So this is going to be my entry. When I saw this contest, I knew this was the look I needed to enter…it’s really kinda anti-me. Sorta like my alter ego…bright eyes, bold lip, tossed hair, a little sad…a bad-girl kind of look for me. ;-) I do not yet have any Glamourdolleyes eyeshadows, but I am dying to try some!!
For this look I used:
- Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer, MAC Painterly PP (base), Sugarpill Buttercupcake (bottom middle of lid), Sugarpill Flamepoint (crease), Sugarpill Love+ (above crease), Sugarpill Poison Plum (outer lid & lower lashline), Sugarpill Dollipop (brow bone & lower lashline), Sugarpill Tako (highlight), MUFE Aqua Eyes 0L liner (upper lashline & waterline), MUFE Smokeylash mascara
- Cheeks: MAC Briar Rose Beauty Powder Blush
- Lips: Fyrinnae Meerkat (loose shadow mixed with MAC clear lipglass)
See more pictures!!

That’s a gorgeous gorgeous look, I really love the purple lips with the gold microglitter-delectable! Burning Heart is my favourite Sugarpill palette bc I painted every wall in my room a different colour to look like a tropical/hawaiian sunset and it contains the same colours :) Red, Orange, Yellow, Purple. People exclaimed at how loud it was in the process of and now everyone wants to copy it since it’s finished!
I am very curious to recreate this look on myself and see if I can make it look half as pretty! (I don’t own any GDE either but I want them all! except perhaps Trophy Wife bc when you go Sugarpill Goldilux, you never go back!)
My ex was a valentine’s baby and he was so bitter about his birthday. He was actually a very bitter, resentful person in general, and I’m glad that you took the same situation and turned a 180 :-)
This is my favourite Burning Heart Palette look yet, so congrats, you won my personal award for awesomeness (and the killer lips!)
