Valentine's Day Make Up
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I thought I'd share a really quick and easy Valentine's Day makeup look with the girls!
This look is very soft and romantic and would look great in the day or evening. I like that it's also very subtle and versatile should you decide on a last minute change of clothing.
- Start by applying a liquid foundation (I use a sponge applicator) all over your face.
- Next, apply your eye concealer and blend seamlessly to the rest of your face. Careful not to apply too much or it might end up really cake-y.
- Touch-up with a spot concealer on any spots or blemishes that you may have.
- Set with a loose, matte translucent powder to keep your makeup lasting all day, and night.
- Start by highlighting your brow bone and the inner corners of your eyes with the lightest shimmery shade, 'Filigree'.
- Next, take 'Pink Zinc' and sweep this across the centre of your eye lids.
- With 'Guest List', use a buffer and sweep it along the outer 1/2 of your socket line. Keep blending to soften any harsh lines. (If you prefer a more intense look, just add on and keep blending till you achieve that desired smokey effect.)
- Then, line your eyes with a black liquid liner (it's more lasting and doesn't smudge!) and apply your favourite waterproof mascara.
5. Finally, line your water line with a rose gold eye liner. This will instantly widen and brighten up
your eyes to make them look sparkly.
To end off, I finish with a sweet, rosy blusher on my cheeks and a pink-ish lip tint for that natural, feminine glow. I'd suggest using a light-coloured lip tint or moisturising lipstick that's going to be more convenient and easy to touch-up when you're out on your big date!
