A Pop Of Pink!

Hi everyone and happy Friday :) I didn't know if I would have time tomorrow to do a post and I wanted to do as many valentines looks as I could so I have done one today instead for you! I am a little annoyed as I have used a new foundation which has broke me out so my skin isn't the best at the moment, so hopefully for my next one it will be better.

Because of this I decided to do a makeup look which takes less effort but still stands out and will look pretty for whatever you are doing on valentines day. For me this is the kind of makeup I normally go for, its super simple to do and stands out to!  

MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
Ben Nye Cameo Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Sleek Lace Blush Palette Shade Chantilly
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

I started with the base this time. I firstly applied the foundation with my beauty blender, then concealed under the eyes, down the nose and centre of the forehead. I set all this with the loose powder. I then Buffed the bronzer over the cheekbones, around the forehead to give some warmth to the face. I finished with the blush blended over the cheekbones and highlighter on the top of the cheekbones, down the nose and cupids bow.

Tip: To get a sun kissed look and add warmth to your face instead of applying bronzer all over the face only apply it to the areas which the sun would naturally hit, this is more effective.

Benefit Brow Zings
Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel In Brunette
NYX Black Gel Liner
Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Mascara
Avon Black Khol Pencil
Benefit Bright Eyes
Any False Eyelashes

I Started with my eyebrows, using the Brow Zings and then setting it with the brow gel. For the eyes I started by lining the eyelid with the gel liner, then lined the water line with the bright eyes pencil. I lightly drew a few dots of kohl pencil to the lower lash line just to make the lashes look a little thicker. I buffed a small amount of the bronzer into the crease to add a little definition and added a few coats of mascara top and bottom. I finished with false lashes and also dapping a little highlighter to the inner corner.

Tip: Using a flesh coloured pencil in the waterline makes your eyes look brighter and bigger.

NYX Dollymix Lip Pencil
NYX Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink

So That's my latest look for valentines, hopefully will get one or two more up in time. Let me know if you like these as I enjoy doing them for you! Have a great weekend.
