A Vampy Valentines!

Hi everyone and welcome back! The weather outside is shocking today, its pooring with rain outside its it all dark and gloomy :( since I have the full day to myself and refuse to step out in this I thought I would test my new camera out and do a makeup look for you today. I have chosen to do a valentines makeup look as its getting close now and Im sure a lot of you will be doing something special with your loved ones or going out with your friends. I don't usually wear my makeup this strong however I thought id go for it! 

So this is the look its super simple to do and it deffinatelty suits the valentines theme! You dont have to use the same products as me any which are similar colours will work just fine! And you can chose to leave the bold lip out if you wanted too and go for a nice nude. 

MAC Paintpot in Blackground 
MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon
MAC Eshadow in Folie
Mac Eshadow in Ricepaper 
Loreal Infaillable Eyeliner in Chocolate Addiction
Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Mascara
Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Liner Black
Benefit Brow Zings Light
Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel inBrunette 
Any False Lashes 

I started with the eyes first which always helps when working with dark shadows as its easy to clean up any fall out. I Firstly did my eyebrows using the browzings powder and the set them with the brow gel. Next I applied the paint pit all over the lid and into the inner corners of the eye. I then applied carbon eyeshadow all over the paint pot and started to blend into the crease. I used the folie eyeshadow to blend out the carbon up towards the brow bone. I finally used ricepaper to highlight the brow bone and made sure there was no harsh lines and everything was blended. For the under eye I ran the paint pot all the way under and smoked this out using a mixture of carbon and folie. I lined the top lid with a small line of liquid liner and the bottom water line with the brown pencil to soften it slightly. I finished with a few coats of mascara and false lashes. 

Tip: use a piece if card or tape at the side of you eyes to help create the straight line when blending out. 

MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation
MAC Pro Lingwear Concealer 
Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel
Ben Ney Cameo Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Nyx Peach Blush
The Balm Mary Lou Manizer 

I started with applying foundation all over the face with the beauty blender. I concealed the under eyes, bridge of the nose, centre of the forehead and chin with the concealer to highlight. I then contoured the cheekbones and the top of the forehead with the chanel bronzer and blended out. I set all of the concealer with the loose powder and applied a little hoola bronzer over the forehead and under the cheekbones. I finished with the peach blush in the cheekbones and highlighter on top of thecheek bones. 

Tip: less is more with more with foundation and concealer. Its always easier to apply more than take away.  

Nyx Lip Pencil in Plum
MAC Diva Lipstick 

I applied the lip pencil all over the lips with the lipstick on top. 

Tip: use a lip brush to help you get straight lined when using strong coloured lipstics. 

So there is my vampy valentines look guys hope you like it. I will try to do some more different looks over the next week or so!
