I was supposed to be working on a Valentine's Day look, but found myself going in the opposite direction. Let's call this an Anti-Valentine's Day look. Don't read too much into this; I fully plan on celebrating with hearts and candy galore (and I have another look I'll be posting). But back in the day - oh, half my lifetime ago - I was very anti Valentine's Day. I even had a shirt that said so. So, if you're feeling dark and moody on this polarizing holiday, here's a look for you. It's even complete with appropriately named cosmetics!


  1. Oh wow!!! Wonderful make up, such a great idea that I might use this weekend for Valentine's Day date with my man. :)

  2. The makeup looks marvelous! I need the Naked 3 palette!

  3. This is such a lovely, sultry look - I'd say it's not anti-Valentine's at all! Very pretty!

  4. I always love how you create smokey eyes. It's never over-the-top, but noticeable, and very elegant. I love this one! :)

  5. Hey Keiko, what did you contour with?

  6. That is truly gorgeous! I would appreciate an eyebrow routine! Yours are on point: not overdone and simply perfect and still natural! xoxo, Sissi

    1. Here you go! Lately, I've been using dipbrow in place of the powder, but I always go back and forth.

  7. Beautiful makeup

  9. Keiko, I absolutely love your makeup Mondays. Thank you for the continuous inspiration. Have a great week!

  10. I'm actually throwing an Anti Valentine's Day party and this would be the perfect look! I just love a dark lipstick.

  11. Hey! Very nice post and inspiring blog! :) Keep up the great work, I'm a fan! :D XOXO .

  12. Love the rich, vampy look on you, Keiko! I've been reaching for Naked3 quite a bit over the wintertime :)

  14. This look is gorgeous! I am all about that lipstick - it's the perfect dark red! Now to start obsessively looking for a dupe...
