Two Dashes of Glam | Boyfriend Picks My Makeup

The title says it all. Valentine's Day is coming around (uhhh, it is tomorrow) and Melissa, from kissandmakeupsbeautyblog, and I wanted to do something related to that holiday for Two Dashes of Glam, but we also wanted to do something different, which is how we came up with this fun little twist: our significant others (our baes, if you want to get all Millennial about it) would pick out each of our makeup products, and we had to create a look with it! Click ahead to see the results!

I thought my boyfriend would pick out all kinds of strange colors, or go for weird color combinations, but he went for a very traditional and classy look... and I gotta admit, I was slightly disappointed haha. However, after I used the products I was really happy with the results, and it ended up being a classic look that I don't wear all that often! So thanks, Mr. Boyfriend, for making me use typical colors in a non-typical way (for me)! 

For the eyes, he selected blackish-grey eyeshadows from my Naked 1 palette by Urban Decay, black eye pencil by Shu Uemura. My cheeks got a pinkish-brown blush and a champagne-golden pop of highlighter "Watt's Up" by Benefit. And for the lips he picked Bourjois Paris' Rouge Edition velvet lipstick in Grand Cru. I used the dark eyeshadow colors to create a reverse-smokey look with the darkest colors at the bottom and the softer ones at the top, and I applied the eye pencil in my waterline too, because that makes the look more finished... and, euhm, mysterious? Yeah, all in all, I am satisfied. 

That brings us to Melissa! Or better said, to her significant other... what kind of products did he pick out, and what did Melissa do with it? I know just as much as you, so click here and find out with me what her results are! I'm pretty curious. Let me know what you think of our looks... and if you'd let your bae do the same! Oh yeah, happy Valentine's Day for those who celebrate it. 



  1. Heeeeey, our eye looks kind of turned out similar :-D Guess our boys have the same taste in eye make-up then. Love the red lip on you, good pick, boyfriend!

  2. Super leuk! En jouw haaaaaaaar het is zoooo mooi! Geweldige kleuren! <3

  3. Your look is perfect, smokey and sultry with a red lip. I guess your bf likes to see you glammed up every once in a while. I dont think my husband would voluntarily pick. Red lip, but I may put him to the test soon.
