Valentines day is right around the corner, and I have the perfect look that will suit whatever it is you have planned, whether that’s going out with your other half, or a night out with your girls! This look is going to be all about the lips, with a very neutral eye shadow look, along with a cat-eye flick.
You should prime your face before applying the rest of your makeup in order to keep everything in place all day and night. The primer that I use is the L’Oreal Mattifying Primer. Not only does this keep your makeup in place, it reduces oil and shine.
Bourjois City Radiance is the perfect foundation for this look. It’s very lightweight and gives your skin a very glowing and luminous finish, without looking oily. It makes your complexion look very natural and radiant and just makes it look like your skin, but better! This foundation blends beautifully, and I prefer the finish of it when I apply it with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
The next product will come as no surprise, and this is my beloved Collection Lasting Perfection concealer to cover any dark circles under my eyes. I then go over this with the L’Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer Pen in the shade Light 1. This is a great dupe for the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat. I also use this to highlight my face; cheekbones, down the centre of my nose and in the middle of my forehead.
To contour, the Clinique Contour Chubby Stick is perfect! I apply this by drawing a line along the hollows of my cheeks and blend it in with a beauty blender. This gives a lot more depth and definition to my cheekbones, and I will then go over this with my L’Oreal Glam Bronze bronzer. This bronzer is very natural looking and is quite subtle.
I will then take the Revlon Highlighting palette and apply this to the apples of my cheeks to add a flush of colour.
Next, is the Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I apply this to my t-zone to prevent any oil and shine and add this under my eyes to help set my concealer.
I use the Soap and Glory Archery pencil to fill in my eyebrows and use the clear gel at the other end to help keep them in place. This product makes filling in eyebrows so easy and makes them look so natural!
For eye shadow, I am using the original Urban Decay NAKED Palette. I use the shade ‘Sin’ all over the lid and as a brow bone highlight. I then use the shade ‘Naked’ in my crease and from the middle of my eyelid, outwards. To add a bit of depth and definition, I then take the shade ‘Buck’ through my crease and ‘Darkhorse’ in my outer V. To create a cat-eye flick, I am using the L’Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim. This makes it so easy to do and is great for precision.
For mascara, I am loving the Maybelline ‘The Falsies Push Up Drama’ mascara. This is the perfect mascara for when you haven’t got a lot of eye make up on as it really gives a false lash effect, making your eyelashes look fuller and more voluminous.
Finally, for lips. Valentines day is about all things red, so of course, this is going to be a red lipstick. Firstly, I line my lips to stop any bleeding from the lipstick, and the lip liner that I will be using is ‘Red Dynamite’ by Rimmel. The lipstick that I am going to be using is ‘Russian Red’ by Mac. This is the perfect shade of red and gives a matte finish, making it last a very long time and is not at all drying!
That is my Valentines Day makeup look and I hope you enjoyed this post!
