Why Valentine's Day SUCKS... & how to make it better!
hello guys it's me Nikki hello
Valentine's Day is one of the days I have always hated the most always all the traumatised memories of not ever getting any cards of not ever getting any messages of not ever getting any love ever okay I'm excited now I'm not exaggerating oh that's sad
Valentine's Day you either love it or you hate it but one thing - very much so love about it is all the banging-ass
makeup looks that's surrounded it is literally as if the
makeup community was like okay let's take all of these traumatized memories and turn it into something fun it's all the pinks all the Reds are the Purple's all the lilacs are brought out to slay for the day and if you're anti
Valentine's Day come on with the vamp enos maybe it works either way so today I thought it was fun to just sit down and create a very inspirational out there
Valentine's Day look that will hopefully be good for the gram and just get my creative juices flowing you're nasty so much has been going on in my life that right now all I need is to just sit down here in my studio and play with
makeup so that is exactly what we're doing so if you're in the mood to hear about some of my crazy love life stories if you want to see how I do a fun
makeup look all you have to do is I don't know if you're sitting but keep on sitting and why you guys know I'm so open about what I do to my face so if you're...
wondering what the hell this is right here when she got a little love put in my cheeks so like giggling a little bit more snatched that bruise it's acting like a teenager who doesn't want to listen so the look I'm pulling inspiration from today is actually a face chart posted by by Sully and she created this crazy cloudy
Valentine's Day look now this one is very sad I'm in a good mood so I'm gonna
makeit happy but just the fact that there's like pink clouds on the center of the face when you fall in love they say you're on cloud nine they say your head is in the skies we know they say your head is in the clouds head in the clouds yes on a pink cloud you seeing life through pink glasses common thing in the world to say pink glasses never mind before we get to any type of cloud though it is time for the base so let's go it not to prime is crime so let's get primer this right here for Solly they recently came out with liquid powder a wet liquid powder oil balancing serum with French pink clay I don't know what any French pink clay does to the face but what I've noticed what this does is this is it's like a barrier between the
makeup and your skin it's like it keeps everything underneath the
makeup that you put on so I put this just on the oiliest parts of my face so my nose my teeth pretty much my t-zone and it really creates a barrier to like keep the
makeup on I don't know how if address in my face that doesn't...
need that barrier and that just needs a good primer I am popping on the milk hydric Earth God I am telling you ever since Jimmu coming out in the studio I know I don't want to keep talking about it but like every time I'm in the studio it brings me back to what I felt in that moment so it's it's gonna take a little bit of time for me to like sit here and not think about that all of that but I'll Oh I managed I just want to let you know that sometimes I get really nervous in here because I'm like oh all right I'm starting off with you for Solly liquid powder t-zone let's create that layer Oh smile lines this on the smile lines is everything I took and that is focusing on like right here like surrounding it and underneath the eyes primer is on we're ready to slay all day even though I'm taking this off after filming oh by the way can we take a second for the nails oh my god they're called confetti nails I went for a brand new shape I usually have the coffin shape but this shape is just a found a Sione's for foundation and going in with the Revlon Photoready candid natural finish anti-pollution foundation in the color 120 now that is giving me a lovely medium coverage it is softer than what I usually do so I'm probably going ahead and going in with you know 7 pounds of concealer after this but it's nice to have this moment for concealer i'ma go in with the one and only the truest of them all the jus a essential high...
coverage concealer because it is my favorite alright and then after I am setting it using my new favorite powder if you have seen the Xtreme Drac transformation that Dutch drag queen legend and V Peru did on me she used this powder right here this is derma color fixing powder but this is a water proof powder this is the most powerful lasting powder that I've ever tried in my life so I'm using this it's in the color pn0 and I'm gonna use that to set my face okay so this right here is the eye look that I came up with now this by itself could be a bomb extremely colorful
Valentine's Day look so if you just want to keep it up the eyes you can totally do that if you think this is too much that is an opinion you have right to opinions but this is the eye that I decided to go for but you can always opt for something softer or even more extreme a cut crease you can do whatever you like I feel like the main focus is going to be the pink cloud on the face but the ice can be banging - okay so let's get to it shall we the first thing I'm doing is priming my eyelids using the pea Louise base in point five and the pink shadow is gonna come from this pile right here this is the kimchi cheek the rainbow sharks palette everybody and it looks like this and I'm taking the color watermelon which is possibly the easiest most bright intense pink I've ever used in my life and that is gonna be our main star for this look so I'm thinking that color up on a...
brush and I'm just starting to tap it on to that base which we haven't set with powder because we wanted to act like a magnet so the pink is really gonna stick on to that base and we're just creating our shape and I went for this sort of hazy blown out with a highlighted Center look and I first placing the pink on the outer corner and then also applying it to the inner portion of the eye and doing the exact same not that the shape is on it is time to take whatever is the left in that brush and slowly but surely start diffusing and soften up that edge and you do this by applying the softest pressure with your brush and creating soft circular motions well I have a funny story to tell snow back when Dylan and I started dating see so y'all know mama tutorials and Mama tutorials is the best mom of life because you know special situation very special youth and me and my love life were always something like she would just wanted me to be safe anytime literally any time I mentioned a boy's name she was like a boy oh my god oh she's mentioning a boy are you in love Mike have you gone dating are you in loved healthiest is the man of your dreams like literally any male name and she would be like I'm God are you love are you dating by the time I started dating Dylan you know I wanted to keep things a little bit more private I wanted to experience it for myself before telling anyone about what we were you know experiencing with each other and one excuse I kept...
making whenever I was hanging out with Dylan and I didn't want to tell my mom yet that I was hanging out with my friend lisanna and so every time like Luisana and I have been doing this all throughout our youth like and when she was hanging out with a boy and she didn't want her mom to know she would tell her mom that she was hanging out with me and we did the same so every time I went out with Dylan to like the movies or we went out for dinner or we did something fun I would always tell my mom because I text my mom every single day I would always be like oh yeah I'm going to the movies with news element and we're having such a great night and she believed it and the funny thing is I'm get to blending okay the first time I introduced Dylan to my parents I said hi here he is Dylan and then Dylan shook my mom's hand and he said hi new Zelda I died I died okay now for the center of the lid all the way up to the brow this color here this call it here grape is on another level it is like a baby pink but then the reflection is I green and blue it's it's a party and I literally want that on the center of my entire eye so it's going from here all the way to there oh my God look at that that reflection on another level iconic beyond words now playing that same hot pink to the lower lashline and then taking that baby pink and that is going on the inner portion the lower lash line and then that insane lid color is also going on the inner corner to...
bathe in this color it's so good yep Kim she served she slept with this color people all right time for some lashes and then we can go ham with the clouds the eyes are done and I must say I am properly living for darling all right now it is time for the fun part of the look if you love pink clouds that is pink clouds on the face before we do that we want to lay down our base so I'm gonna contour and bronze a little bit to get that done so that we can put the clouds over top of our wealthy bronzed and contoured face nothing too crazy we just want a little bit of warmth and just to
makeit all one pieces life style going home with it now now let's put down our pink haze of a cloud so I definitely want to cover like the center of my face blowing up to the sides of the face with pink the cream product I'm using for this is by P Louise and Mumma Mitchell this is the acid rain and the color raver which is clearly bright so I'm toning it down using Blanc Kansas I for one stone when I get my hands dirty so I'm mixing it on the back of the eye that looks like my skin tones and we need more pink that's pretty that could be it oh I never do this oh my god okay oh what am i doing Oh God this is just putting down the pink base for the clouds to get some dementia out as still not sure if this is gonna become iconic or my worst look yet we shall see now we need more dimension in certain places - you know Bob Ross it out ok not taking more of that raver to deepen...
and darken in some areas hopefully and not
makeit look weird here and here and here and here ok I think it's time for white to
makesomewhat of a cloud and get a general idea because this is freaking me out like I'm regretting everything further white I'm taking my
makeup forever professional flash palette I'm taking a flat synthetic brush I'm picking up that white and we're just gonna place like tiny half circles and the kind of smudging out at the bottom of the tiny circles and that hopefully is gonna look like cloud and then we can highlight those clouds and
makethem shiny see yes now let's kind of go back in with that pink brush and kind of go over it to give it more of a pink feel so they look cute I think that looks really cute but the one thing I definitely notice in the inspiration from by Sully is that there's darker pink red clouds to you at contrast so I'm gonna try that works this is awesome as if you're back in kindergarten playing with a droid and then going ham with it not knowing where it's gonna stop for a highlighter I'm of course using my own creation in my pan the best pink beautiful glow out there this is cloud 9 my collaboration highlighter with Oprah cosmetics and this is perfect for this look oh my god if you'd just this over the clouds they become like radioactively pink I like the tip of the nose look at that the perfect pink sheen for lips first thing on a line using oh snap lip pencil by...
colour-pop then to fill it in I'm going in with this the Shane Dawson and jeffree star liquid lip and oh my god and for gloss I'm using the Geoffrey start gloss in the color contrast is creative fun
makeup look that you're really not going to wear anywhere but hey it's here it's almost as if I did another little
makeup therapy but instead of talking while doing my
makeup I finally just got to sit down and do a fun
makeup look because I've been craving doing something different and getting out of just the past months not rut but sort of like vibe and I cannot tell you how good it felt to just sit here have fun and have an all pink day and I think it's a really fun and cute look you can of course keep it adjust the eyes or do just the cheeks for today's Dutch word of the day I'm gonna keep it very simple for you because if you so happen to be here on
