I was reluctant to use red and purple but since it's for a Valentine's themed contest I did want it to fit the theme, and I think it does; it looks Valentiney and wearable, but still has some personality and flair. At least I hope it does, lol. I loved the gradation of the eyeshadow; the peachy pink blending into melon blending into red turned out well, I think. If I'd been doing a more traditional type of look I would have stopped there, but I added the pop of purple underneath for wow-factor. ;D

Bonus pics!

Taken with my sister's little camera to show texture, though the colors aren't as accurate.
You can see the heart-shaped jewel best here :3
One of the few no-flash pics I took, and the only one I was able to salvage. I need to get my lighting situation sorted out >.<
This shot wasn't necessary but I couldn't leave it out xD
 So there you have it! I enjoyed this look immensely; I think it turned out well and isn't something I would have done ordinarily. I hope you enjoyed it too! 
Thanks for reading!<33
