Beauty Articles Giving Back Products With Purpose

Watch My Boyfriend Do My Valentine’s Day Makeup

Valentine's Day

2016 was a year that many would rather forget … but not me! Last summer I met a dreamboat who checked all the boxes. He’s the ying to my yang and even finds it charming when I sing at the top of my lungs and DVR shows about murder. Most importantly, we laugh a lot. And because humor plays such a prominent role in our relationship, we decided that it might be entertaining to let him apply my Valentine’s Day look using only makeup brands that give back (see his options, above!).

Watch below to see him boldly attempt a cat eye, nearly take my brows off with aggressive brush strokes, and unknowingly master contouring:
