Galentine’s Day is right around the corner and I was inspired to create a fierce, glam look to share with you all! I also tested out several new products so keep your eyes peeled for first impressions as well.

This shirt definitely calls for a red lip and I always love rocking winged liner with red lips. It makes me feel bold, confident, and fierce. I also wanted to incorporate a bronze-y/gold eye with a ton of glow!
Let’s start with the basics – for this Galentine’s glam look I wanted to make sure my base allowed my skin to look smooth and keep the products longwearing so I used one of my favorite primer combinations: Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer and Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional.
I then went in with foundation* and concealer* – both of which are from Uoma Beauty. I also used the UOMA concealer to prime my eyelids. Both of these products give me full coverage with a weightless, skin-like feel. I set my under eyes with the banana powder in Profusion’s Highlight and Contour Palette (one of my holy grail products, it’s only $5 and the quality is AMAZING!) I set the rest of my face with Pretty Vulgar’s Translucent Setting Powder.
I added a spritz of Urban Decay’s All Nighter Spray to set everything I’ve done and once it dried, I went on to contour with Profusion’s Highlight and Contour Palette and used Milani’s Baked Blush in Dolce Pink. For my highlighter I went in with ColourPop’s Super Shock Cheek Highlighter in You’re A Catch – beautiful shade and amazing formula!

Next I filled my brows with COVERGIRL’s Micro-Fine + Define Brow Pencil* and Sephora Collection’s Brow Volumizing Fiber Mascara*. For my eyes I used Profusion’s Nude Eyes Eyeshadow Palette* and their new eye brushes*! These brushes worked SO well to blend out my eyeshadow and the palette itself had a great formula. I used the shades Silky, Doll, Mic Drop, and Zing. If you’re looking for an affordable beauty brand to splurge on, Profusion is it!
I also tried an eyeliner new to me for this look – Rimmel London’s Wonder Ink Liquid Liner*. It gave me a quick, easy, and precise wing and the formula did not bleed – a total win win! I used Urban Decay’s 24/7 Eye Pencil in Black for my waterline – a trusty pencil liner I’ve used since the beginning of my makeup times! For mascara, I went in with a holy grail – COVERGIRL’s Exhibitionist. It totally transforms my lashes in terms of length, volume, and curl!
Last but not least, I went in with one of my favorite red lipsticks – NARS PowerMatte Lip Pigment in Star Woman. If I could purchase every single shade in this formula, I totally would – it’s weighless, comfortable, and longwearing!
