I’m not really a fan of Valentines Day and how much of a hype it seems to have gotten over the past few years – but I do like to go out for dinner, any excuse and I’ll take it! Whether you’re going on a romantic date, a mate date or just heading out for drinks with friends, a bold makeup look is just what you need! Do not opt for a boring natural look, even though it’s easiest and I am guilty of this too, but spice it up – extend your eyeliner flicks and add some glitter…
I’m terrible at eye makeup, so after searching Pinterest I found a picture which I thought I could recreate with my Naked 3 palette. If you don’t have this palette, you just need 4 shades – matte cream/white, matte brown, shimmery champagne & shimmery brown (darkest you can find)!
Firstly, I worked the matte brown into the crease and highlighted my brow bone and inner-corner with the matte cream. Next I patted on the champagne shimmer across the lid and darkened the outer corner with the shimmery brown. Then blend blend blend! Sweep whatever is left on your brush under your eye so it all ties in together. I added some liquid eyeliner to make the look a little bit more dramatic!
Finished look and grainy iPhone quality selfie…
I wore this look out to dinner and wore my Kylie Lip Kit in Candy K. This is my go-to nude lipstick just now as it lasts alllll night long. I used it for a nightout last weekend and I didn’t have to reapply it once! Amazing!
Now my makeup is sorted, I need to find something I can wear! What are your plans for Valentines day?
