A VALENTINES / ANTI-VALENTINES DAY MAKE UP LOOK



Valentine's Day is one of those unavoidable events that happen every year - it's less fun and usually more expensive than Easter, if you're single you get love hearts and awful mushy cards all over the high street reminding you that you're single, and if you're in a relationship there's the moderate pressure of comparing yourselves to others and wondering if you've been romantic enough/spent enough blah blah blah.  
However, whatever your situation on February 14th or in fact any day of the year, there's no reason why you shouldn't feel good for you!  I have come up with this look and named it a Valentine's Day one, but to be honest I do my make up like this whenever I feel like it!  There doesn't need to be an occasion to get the pink lipstick out, and as bloggers/make up lovers we should already know this - but I'll shut up now and just go through what's on my face, soz.  

Got a bit carried away with preaching  there, but anyway, I used the above products to create this look.  I used all my usual base products to start with, (which I haven't included in the photo because I feature them all the time) like the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation, and then did some contouring using my Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow palette.  I used the contour shade down my cheekbones and down the sides on my nose, and a little of the highlighter on places like my cheeks, chin, centre of my nose etc.  I went over the tops of my cheeks with a small amount of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Champagne Pop, to add some extra glow.  I chose the Bobbi Brown Greystone palette to create a soft smokey eye, with the Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner over the top to create a good old cat flick.  
My pink lipstick of choice was MAC Full Fuchsia, which is possibly my favourite ever shade.  I love how vibrant and bold it is, and there's just something about this colour that seems to make it so flattering to wear.  

Let me know what your plans are for Valentine's Day! xx
