Another year, another Valentine's Day.
In years past whether I've been in a relationship or not, I've always taken extra strides to make Valentine's Day a big deal. It all started with getting baskets from my mom on the "Day of Love" when I was a kid. It was like Easter, only better. The baskets were always filled with bath salts, lip glosses, and all that Bonne Bell girly goodness.
As an adult, I hold on to the feeling that Valentine's Day is important and deserves special mention. This year I have prepared my look early. Featuring the Laura Mercier Lingerie palette (fitting name for V-Day no?) I created this Smoked Out Purple eye.
