Oh So Natural!

Hi everyone hope you have all had a great weekend! I do like to post as much as I can at the weekends however yesterday I had two makeup appointments so didn't have the time, luckily I got one up on Friday tho! I have had a relaxing day today, I have been on a nice walk with the dog, and im cooking a meal for everyone tonight :) but while im sitting by the nice coal fire I thought I would write up my post for today. I did another valentines look today because I think this will be the last one I will be able to do in time. My skin still hasn't fully cleared up from my last post so I decided to do something very minimal so not to irritate anything, but with some glittery pinks to suit the occasion. I think this is perfect for day time more than night so I have not used any eyelashes. Its just super pretty and natural.

Benefit Brow Zings
Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk
Avon Black Khol Eyeliner
Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara
Benefit Eye Bright Pencil
Naked 1 Palette: Sin, Sidecar, Naked and Creep

I started with my eyebrows, using the brow zings and setting it with the brow gel. For the eyes I began with applying the jumbo pencil all over the eyelid, round and under the inner corner of the eye. I then applied Sin all over the top. Next I took Half Baked and with a fluffy brush blended it all around the edge and into the crease. I blended out this edge with Naked so there was no harsh lines. I then lined the top of the eye with a strong line with the black eye pencil. I took Creep on an angled brush and applied it over the liner pushing upwards to smudge it all out. With what was left on the brush I gently lined the outer part of the lower lash line to add definition. I lined the water line with the eye bright pencil. I finished with a coat of mascara and one final dab of Sin to the very centre of the eyelid.

Tip: Using a cream base for eye shadow ensures it stays for longer and helps you get the best pigment.

Revlon Photo Ready 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 by applying Foundation all over the face, then concealing my under-eyes, bridge of the nose, chin and forehead. I set everything with the loose powder, then applied the bronzer to areas that would naturally catch the sun to warn the face. I finished with applying the blush to the cheekbones and highlighting the tops of then and under the brows. 

NYX Pale Pink Lip Pencil
L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Julianne's Nude

I Filled in all the lips with the pencil then applied the lipstick

Tip: by filling in the whole lip with the lip pencil helps the lipstick last longer.

So that's my latest Valentines look for you, I like this as it is really fresh faced but with a nice shimmer on the eyes so they pop a bit more. have a great start to the week everyone and I'll be back soon.
