Valentine's Date Look, Outfit and Kiko's Proposal....We're Engaged!!! *Pic Heavy*

Yes, you read it right. Kiko and I are finally engaged! A big Assssuuuusssss!!! He proposed to me on Valentine's day at the beach after our dinner date. It was the funniest and most romantic thing ever and totally didn't expect it. I'll tell you more about it at the end of this post. But first, I want to share my Valentine's makeup look I wore that night.



Valentine's day landed on a Tuesday, which is a work day, and the last thing I want to do is spend hours in front of my vanity doing my makeup. So, I turned to some of my makeup palettes for a quick inspiration. I know, for sure I didn't want anything complicated and too heavy. I want a simple, soft yet defined and pretty look. Using both of my Wet n Wild I Heart palette and Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette, I came up with gold and brown eye makeup with soft peachy pink cheeks and orangy coral lips.











GET THE LOOK

face:
  • I wanted my face to look flawless as possible. After moisturizer, I used Reviva Labs face primer and on my face. It helps the foundation apply smoother and last longer. 
  • Using a damp Beauty Blender, I stippled MAC Studio Fix Fuid in NC42 evenly all over my face. The Beauty Blender is amazing. It provides the most beautiful foundation finish.
  • Almay EyeBase concealer in medium, which is close to my skin tone was used to conceal around the nose and blemishes. 
  • Physicians Formula conceal rx physicians strength concealer in light which is 2 shades lighter than my skintone applied under the eyes and blended with the Beauty Blender. This gives a bright under eye look, kind'a like Kim Kardasian ^_^. 

eyes:
  • I primed the eye lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion. It keeps the colors vibrant and prevent it from creasing.
  • Using Wet n Wild Color Icon I Heart Matte palette, I picked up a mix of matte soft brown and dark brown e/s and applied on the crease/above the crease and lower lash liner and matte white applied on the brow bone using ELF $1 blending brush.
  • Oraculum, a gold eye shadow from Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette was applied all over the lids and inner half of the lower lash line with ELF $1 shader brush. The gold is so pretty with a shimmery, almost metallic finish that gives a nice highlight on the lids.
  • Line the upper lash line and water line with Urban Decay 24/7 eye liner in zero. It's a great water proof eye liner that stays on for hours.
cheeks:
  • I wanted a natural flush on my cheeks, so I used Milani Mineral blush in Mai Tai, a peachy pink blush and applied it on my cheeks with a stippling brush. Using a stippling is great for blending and gives a nice natural finish.
lips:
  • Blistex lip balm all over the lips to keep it moisturized under the lipstick.
  • Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold, an orangy-coral color with a semi-matte finish. I've used this lipstick too many times. I just love how it makes my face look fresh!

That's it for the makeup look. If you have any questions, let me know down the comment bar below. Now, onto our Valentine's dinner date and Kiko's proposal...gaaaahhhh. Kiko planned a dinner date on Valentine's day, which id a bit odd because we never go out on Valentine's day. We always celebrate days before or after to avoid crowded restaurants. And I usually do all the planning. But this time, he had planned everything weeks in advance. He took me to Chart House restaurant in Redondo Beach. It's a beautiful seafood restaurant right next to the beach.



For starters, complimentary bread, crackers and butter.



...and Lobster and Crab Spring rolls with sweet chili dipping sauce. What a nice appetizer. It's filled with chunky lobster, crab meat, lettuce and noodles. It's very refreshing and light.


For our entrees, Kiko ordered the Seafood Mixed Plate. It has grilled salmon with mustard sauce, shrimp scampi on toast, crab cake with yukon gold mashed potatoes and asparagus. I picked on his plate of course, and everything was delicious.I especially liked the crab cakes the most. It was all big chunks of crab meat. Yum!


I had Seared Mahi with Crab meat on top with a side of tomato orzo and asparagus and grilled tomato.   The mahi was perfectly cooked, moist and flaky. Yum!


For dessert, we had chocolate lava cake. freskly baked chocolate cake with melted godiva chocolate inside with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and crushed toffee and peanuts. I'll let the photo speak for itself!


It was our first time dining here and we really liked it. The place was packed, but we still received great service. And the food was fresh and delicious. We will definitely come back.

 Just when I thought it was over and we were about to go home, Kiko asked if we could walk on the beach. Why not? It's right next to the restaurant and I love walks on the beach because I find them so romantic. We can hold hands as we chat and make fun of each other. I also bugged him to take photos of my outfit like a thousand times because I'm never satisfied with how I look haha. Happens all the time!





Just in case you're wondering, I'm wearing:
-grey and black dress (San Pedro Wholesale mart)
-Mocha taupe crochet vest (San Pedro Wholesale mart)
-Ann Taylor black blazer
-black opaque tights
-Moda purple faux suede pumps (Downtown Fashion District)
-Ann Taylor leather purse.
-Ann Taylor layered necklace and bracelet
-Hello Kitty earrings 







So he snapped more photos, and more photos. Then, as we walked closer to the water, he asked me to turn around so he can take a photo of the back of my outfit. Eh...not that great!



So I did (photo above). Then, I turned around and there he was, on his knees with a ring on his hand, confessed his love for me and asked me to marry him. (OMG, I still get a bit choked up whenever I talk about it.) Of course, I said YES!!!



We...CryXXooXoxoLaughXoooXooCryCryXXoXoXoOOXo
XoOxOXoLaughCryXoXoOoxXo
CryCryXooXoXoOoLaughXXoXoOCryCryXoXoLaughXoXo
for a good 15 minutes.



We're engaged...on Valentine's day!!! I'm so happy and excited. He said, he decided to propose on Valentine's day because it was 10 years ago when I wrote him that little Valentine message thing in the high school news paper that came out on Valentine's day. He said, if it wasn't for that message, we would have never been together.



 To be honest, I never expected a ring. Well, I'm lying. Maybe I did imagine him proposing to me with ring lol. But even if he proposed without it, I'll be just as happy and excited. He doesn't have to have a ring to prove his love. Our 9 years relationship of love, patience (lots of it), respect, happiness, sacrifices and some hardship speaks louder more than anything else. I love you, my Kiko, my Baby Kos, Baby Kiks, Bebe and Baby Cakes. Now, I'm gonna bug you with wedding ideas haha...




I know, this post is way too long, but thank you for taking out of your day the to read my blog. I appreciate each and everyone of you. Also, thank you to those to greeted me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. A big *hugs and kisses* to you all!

But I know him and I know that he will find the most surprising way to officially propose when he thinks of it.. he is sneaky like that. Good luck!!! <3 <3 <3
