TUTORIAL: Valentine’s Day with Essence {Day Look}


Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and since it’s a Sunday,  I figure a lot of you will be doing day activities so I decided to create a wearable “day look” for you!

Here is the Valentine’s Day look I created featuring Essence Cosmetics:


I always start every look with the eyes. In the event of fall out, it’s super easy to clean up.

  • I prepped my eyes with Wet n Wild photofocus Eyeshadow Primer
  • Using Essence All About Chocolates Eyeshadows:
    • With a flat brush, I applied that taupey shade from the top row (middle shade) all over my eye lid
    • With the same flat brush, I used the brown shade from the top row (third shade) on the outer lid
    • With a blending brush, I applied the dark brown from the bottom row (third shade) on the outer v and up into my crease
    • For the inner corner and to highlight the brow bone, I used the creamy shade from the bottom row (first shade)
  • I lined my eyes with Essence Gel Waterproof Eyepencil in Cocoa Bean
    • and then smudged the same dark brown from the outer V and crease along my top and bottom lash line
  • I applied a few coats of Essence Lash Princess Mascara to my top and bottom lashes
  • and then filled in my brows with the Annabelle Brow Kit.


  • MAC Face and Body as my foundation applied with a Beauty Blender
  • Stila Perfecting Concealer dabbed under my eyes with my ring finger
  • With a fluffy powder brush, I applied Essence Sun Club Bronzer to my cheeks, forehead, and chin, to warm up my skin
  • I used Hourglass Blush in Mood Exposure for blush


  • I started with Essence Lipstick in Cool Nude all over my lips
  • and in the centre, I dabbed a little Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss in Nude Kiss

and there you have it! Easy Peasy.
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day!!
