Valentine's Day soft FOTD with bitten-lip makeup

Peachy-neutral eye makeup and just-bitten lipstick for the daytime.

Valentine's Day soft romantic peachy-neutral eye makeup and just-bitten lipstick, using 10 products.

For a while now, I have been wanting to try out the Korean just-bitten gradient lip look, where the inner lips are deeper and fade away to an MLBB shade towards the edges. The style went viral after it appeared in a few K-Pop dramas. It is a relatively easy look requiring a deeper lip colour, and a paler one. Since I am a fan of matte lips, I opted for matte lip colours rather than glossy shades, and paired it with a very soft, peachy-neutral matte eye look. This is a daytime look, so I wanted it as soft as possible.

Check out my Valentine's Day makeup look, featuring matte bitten lips and soft neutral eyeshadow.

Valentine's Day soft FOTD with bitten-lip makeup

Valentine's Day soft FOTD with bitten-lip makeupRose Petal is a soft pinky-red while Peony Rose is a soft dusty pink. Both can be used as tints or built up for full coverage; I opted for the basic tint. I blended both out with a lip brush, but I have pigmented lips which makes the difference less obvious. I did not use lip liner, since the Rosy Tint Lips do not bleed. These are non-drying and have great staying power. You can read my review of these here.
