FOTD: Valentine's Day Makeup.

I haven't done a make-up look or FOTD post for a while so I thought it would be the perfect time to do one now with Valentine's Day just around the corner. If you're going out on a date on Valentine's Day, you want to make sure you look like you have made an effort for him, but also look natural at the same time. 
For this look, I used a shimmery champagne eyeshadow on the eyelids, and then counterbalanced it with a matte brown shade in the crease. I used a white eyeliner on my water line and a shimmery white eyeshadow in my inner corner to make my eyes look bigger and brighter and I curled my eyelashes before I applied mascara.
On my lips I used my "my lips but better" lipstick; my advice would be to keep your lips a subtle nude/ pink shade, no boy would like to end up with bright pink or red lips!
Finally, I used my straighteners to curl my hair in to loose, natural looking ringlets :)

Makeup I used:

-Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector, Light
-Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, Light
-Sleek Contour Palette, Medium
-Rimmel London Powder Blush, Smoked Oyster

-Original Chapstick
-MUA Lipstick, Shade 11

-Lid: Champagne colour, third from left, bottom row MUA Heaven and Earth Palette.
-Crease: Hitch, Sigma Bare Palette
Highlight and Inner Corner- Top left MUA Heaven and Earth Palette
-Water line: MUA Intense Colour Eyeliner, Snow White
-Mascara: 17 Falsifeye False Lash Effect Mascara
Eyebrows: HD Brows Palette, Bombshell

I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day, are you doing anything special?


  1. this look its gorgeous on you hun, great post. love the shade of the lipstick x

  2. Really like your make up in this! Also loving the hair, I'm aiming for my hair to be like that, the waves look fab :-) xxx

    1. Thank you! I use an odd technique to achieve my curls haha, I wrap my hair around my finger and then take the section in my hand whilst it is wrapped in to a circle shape (if you get what I mean, I'm rubbish at explaining haha), and then I clamp down on it with my straighteners for a few seconds :) It leaves you with gorgeous loose curls :) x

  3. Love this look as it isn't over the top and is actually quite natural. Will def be giving this sort of look a go for Valentines day. Need to get my hands on some MUA products!
