I’m sorry I’m a little late with this but I have a Valentine
’s Day look for you, I really enjoyed this one! I went for a sexy, sultry
eye and I paired it with a nude lip, I also took a picture with a red lip in
case some of you more adventurous girls wanted to do red for valentines.
I went for cherry and browns on the eye which is a combo
that I love; I stayed away from a straight up bright red as we don’t want to
look like a vampire or the undead. I used slanted lashes for that sleepy bedroom
eye, and I’m really pleased with the end result, oh and I've even put together an outfit too! I really hope you like the look and find it useful.
6 different MAC shadows (colours are all interchangeable depending on your skintone and what brands you prefer)
Burgandy shadow from a JC Nadia Paris palette
- I started off with an eye shadow base in a burgundy
to prime the eye and enhance the colour of the shadow. I laid down ‘cranberry’
by Mac on the most prominent part of the brow bone, I then used a chocolate
brown in the crease for the transition colour between ‘cranberry’ and the lid
colour, I used a burgundy eye shadow for all over the lid and used a bright
gold as an inner corner highlight.
- I placed some of the burgundy on the lower
lid and used a black eye shadow to add definition in the outer corner of the
eye and to add a Smokey effect.
- I lined my eyes as normal and added sexy lashes.
Cheeks and Lips!
Burgandy blush (use with a light hand)
Nude- 'half n half' by MAC with 'whirl' lipliner also by MAC (good nude if you are similar to my skintone)
Red- 'Rebel' by MAC
- I used a burgundy blush on my cheeks (using an extremely
light hand, as I wanted the focus to be on the eyes).
- On my lips I went for a nude lipstick, I also tried out the
look with a deep red lip.
(For foundation, concealer, eye liner, lashes, mascara, eyebrows etc use brands and colour to suit)
Oh and here's a few snaps of the outfit and the makeup together...

I hope everyone has an amazing Valentine’s Day, whether it
be with your fella or with your friends
