Valentine’s Day is tomorrow!
Do you have everything ready? Dinner planned, gifts wrapped, maybe a little cute poem that express how you really feel? Candles? Candy? Cards with puppies and kittens and hearts all over?
No? Me neither. I leave everything for the last minute. The whole candy thing is really bad for my teeth, derriere and blood chemistry. Cards with puppies and kittens are for 5 year olds, and the last poem I wrote was in second grade and I believe it was about icecream…
Now, I also don’t team up with the party poopers: “Valentine’s Day is just a commercial strategy designed to sell more crap and make more money”. Well, it is true. But sadly, so is Christmas, no? I mean, how many of us stop thinking of all the presents we are going to get and buy to really concentrate in Christ and what the holiday is REALLY about? Exactly.
My personal favorite, usually coming out of the cynic’s mouth: “I don’t believe you should just dedicate one day to love, you should demonstrate your love every day of the year”. Also true, you should. And you should also do the same with your mother, who gave you life and gave up a lot to make sure you had everything you needed and still cares and worries about you today even if you are in your forties, but… other than Mother’s Day, how often exactly do you call her for no other reason than telling her you love her, how often do you buy her something just cause you think she’ll love it, how often do you stop and take the time to tell her how much you appreciate everything she’s always done for you? Exactly, it’s a shame, but most of us wait for Mother’s Day. I guess that’s really why somebody invented Mother’s Day to start with, because without it our poor mothers would go completely unappreciated every day of the year.
And so it is with VD (Valentine’s Day, NOT venereal disease!). If you appreciate and show your love for your partner every single day, great! So what’s a little more effort on February 14th? I’m all up for making each other feel special, and if some flowers, or a little gift, or making a silly cake will accomplish that, it’s all worth it in my book.
LOVE EACH OTHER, people!!! Tomorrow, and everyday.
Now on to the makeup: This is a look using the Kat Von D palette True Love, and some pretty dramatic liquid liner. Of course you could customize the winged liner to your preferences… pair it with a soft pink on the lips for an angelic cupid look, or some warm red lipstick for a devilish cupid vibe… and have fun with your Valentine!!!
