Valentines Makeup

This is the first valentines day that I have been single for about 8 years so my best friend Lucy and I have booked to go see Fifty Shades of Grey! Girls night...what can be better.

You know me and dewy bases, I just can't get enough of them so my foundation of choice has got to the Maxfactor Skin Luminizer. I just adore this foundation, the finish it gives is just incredible and I always think a dewy base looks more romantic, if that's even possible, then a matte finish. I found this MAC blusher in the bottom of my drawer a month or so ago and have since fallen back in love with it. It is in shade Sunbasque and it's just a lovely bronzed tone blush which goes great with a simple eye and bold lip. When concealing and highlighting the under eye area of course my fingers will be heading for the YSL Touche Eclat. I really love this product, it conceals and highlights at the same time giving your eyes a fresh bright eyed look. 

For eye shadow I like to keep it simple when opting for a bold lip so the gold glitter shadow out of this Clarins palette is perfect for just that. Giving a nice shimmer all over the lids. To compliment the gold shadow I like to just finish it off with a touch of eye liner to define the eyes slightly and my current favourite is this L'Oreal Blackbuster Super Liner. It's pretty much just a felt tip pen with a pointed nib making application ever so easy and simple. I tend to apply eye liner just to the outer halves of my eyes starting really fine at the middle and then graduating ever so slightly thicker to the end of the lash line. I just find this suits my eye and face shape. And then finish off the look with a touch of macara, I love the MaxFactor mascaras and this has got to be one of my favourites. It leaves the lashes looking full but not clumpy. 

And lastly, of course it's Valentines so how can you not wear a red lippy and my current favourite combo is this ELF Matte Lip Color in shade rich red as the base with this Revlon gloss over the top. The matte lip color helps to stain the lips and the gloss just gives a nice sheen and isn't sticky or gloopy. 

So there you have it my 'Valentines look', what will you be wearing?
