Valentine's Day Make-up Look

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you most likely fall into one of these categories:

  • ·      Going out on a hot date with someone you love
  • ·      Planning a girls night out to celebrate the single life
  • ·      Living your life like you normally would on any other Friday night

Either way, it falls on a Friday and unless you’re snowed in like a lot of us New Yorkers have been lately, you should be planning to have a fun night out!

So with the help of a very special friend, I have a fun and flirty makeup look for you to try on this Valentine’s Day! Celebrity make-up artist, Whitney Coss, most prominently known for her work on VHI’s Love & Hip-Hop New York, shared this make-up look with her 22 thousand Instagram followers and I am now sharing it with all of you. 

To help you re-create this look, here are the products she used on the model above.

MAC's Mineralize Powder in "Dark" for contouring face

Ben Nye "Banana" Powder to set concealer under eyes and for highlighting

MAC's Studio Finish Concealer in NC30 for under eyes and more contouring
"Take Me to Brazil" eyeshadow palette by BH Cosmetics. The top right purple color was used for the base color on eyelids
"Carbon" eyeshadow by MAC on the crease/outer corner and on bottom water line
MAC's eyeliner pencil in "Feline" for bottom water line
Kat Von D liquid eyeliner in "Puro Amor"
"They're Real!" mascara by Benefit
MAC "Myth" Lipstick
To see more of Whitney's work on the gorgeous Love and Hip-Hop girls like Tahiry Jose, Erica Mena, and Cyn Santana make sure to follow her on instagram: and for future bookings/inquiries email her at If you'll be in New York on February 23rd, make sure to reserve your spot at Whitney's Make-up 101 class which will be held at Beauty Bar. More information can be found on her instagram page.

Hope you have fun trying out this make-up look and that all you ladies, taken or not, have a great Valentine's Day!
