Simple Valentines Day Makeup /Products Recommendation
My products recommendation for creating simple Valentines Day makeup
Hello my lovelies, are you ready for simple Valentines Day makeup inspo? Tomorrow is the day when everyone, during their morning coffee, should think about the purpose of life. We should all think more about humanity, love and improving our self-esteem.
Having confidence is a key to successful life. To feel good in your skin and to implement this in your day to day life is very important.
Ok, enough rambling… Straight to the point 🙂 … Basically I was trying to say that we should show love, be loved and feel special every single day and not only on 14th of February. So regardless you are going out tomorrow or you are staying at home you should feel beautiful and make this day memorable.
For this year’s romantic makeup I chose soft pink blended with neutral brown shades, dusty pink on the lips and deep magenta colour on the nails.
Burberry Eye Colour Cream in No.106 Pink Heater can be used on its own or as a base. It is such a unique shade… I would describe it as a rose gold colour ( it is pink with brown undertone ) with tiniest specks of shimmer. It is extremely long lasting and so beautiful. I use it almost every single day as it applies very easy and it does not budge all they long. If you want to read more about this product and see close up swatches click here.
Gosh 001 to Enjoy In New York eyehadow palette is gorgeous if you want to create a subtle smokey eye. It contains 12 shades- 3 of them are shimmer, 3 has a satin finish and the last 3 are matte. It is mixture of pink, plum shades and browns. The eyeshadows in this palette are pigmented and buttery and very easy to blend. I highly recommend it if you want to create soft smokey eye and you struggle with achieving this type of makeup look.
Line your inner rim with eye brightening pencil. This will create an illusion for bigger eyes. It will make you look more fresh and awake. NARS Larger Than Life Long -Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte is one of the many on the market. Alternatively you can use Rimmel Scandal Eye Waterproof Kohl Liner in Nude. It is great quality and more affordable than the NARS one.
I think the combination of soft smokey eye and lining your inner rim with eye brightening pencil will create this simple Valentines Day makeup look which is not too dramatic but feminine and sexy.
On my lashes I will apply Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara in waterproof version. This is my new favourite drugstore mascara. It is lengthening and gives an amazing volume to my lashes. And for £7.99 price tag you can’t go wrong, right?Simple Valentine's Day makeup look. Create subtle smokey eye, dusty pink lips and hot magenta nails.Click To Tweet
As I want to balance things out, I wouldn’t want to use pink on my cheeks ( you should always try to mix shades up but still use appropriate combination ). In this case, because I focus on pink eyes and pink lips, I want something very neutral on my cheeks. I chose brown toned blush with slightly orange undertone. Ingot AMC BLUSH 53 is lovely for this occasion but you can always use alternative shades of brown. Another option is just using a bronzer and slightly contour your cheeks.
Illamasqua lipstick in Climax is my favourite type of lip shades. It is pure matte dusty rose shade. It looks delicate and feminine on the lips. It is very long lasting and great for day or night out. Good lip preparation ( exfoliating and moisturising beforehand ) is essential with this formulation as it might be slightly drying otherwise.
Burberry Nail Polish in No.223 Pink Azalia is a hot magenta shade ( here the lightening makes the nail polish appear more red toned but you can click on the name and see the original Burberry page ). What can I say about this shade? Sexy and sophisticated and it is the perfect addition to my simple Valentines day makeup.
Hope you have an amazing Valentines Day full with joy, a lot of cuddles and kisses.
