My Valentine's Makeup

Whether you were celebrating Valentine's Day or not, I thought I'd show you a makeup look I wore for valentines, that works for a bit of everything. It's very soft and simple, and if you wanted to make it more dramatic it could easily be adjusted. For my base I used Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow with L'oreal True Match Foundation and for concealer I used the Bobbi Brown corrector in Bisque with Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer on top to brighten up the under eye. For my makeup to last I used Rimmel's Stay Matte to powder, I used Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow to contour and highlight and NARS Orgasm to add a bit of colour to my cheeks. To define and set my brows I used the Soap & Glory Archery in Hot Chocolate and L'oreal Clear Brow Plumper. On the lids I wanted a soft smokey eye, I chose the Urban Decay Naked 3, with Limit in the inner corner and Factory on the outer corner. I lined my eyes with Urban Decay Perversion, then for mascara I used L'oreal Flutter and Clinique Bottom Lash. For the lips I lined my lips with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk, with MAC Patisserie and Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Picnic in the Park on top.
I'm really pleased with how this makeup look turned out, a look I'll definitely recreate again.

Lot's of love,

Charlotte Tilbury : Filmstar Bronze & Glow

It's designed so you can slim, sculpt, shorten, trim and highlight your features. It's amazing what some shading and highlighting tricks can do to your face. The highlight is the most beautiful highlighter I've used and have seen in a very long time, and it looks stunning on the face. It's so easy to use as it's golden but subtle, just a very natural highlight. The bronze colour is the perfect sculpting shade for many skin tones, which gives a bronzy sun kissed look to the skin. Already this palette is a staple in my collection, Plus the packaging just makes it extra special.

Urban Decay : Eye Pencils

Mugshot // Vacancy // Stargazer // Voodoo // Moonspoon // Perversion // Glitter Rock // Smokeout // Black Velvet // Gonzo // Faint

Urban Decay is known for it's amazing eye pencils, and recently this little liner set came into my makeup collection, which includes 10 creamy, waterproof glide-on eye pencils, including the blackest-than-black shade, Perversion. I've also included Black Velvet which I purchased a while ago but thought I would add it in to share my whole eye pencil collection. My most used shades are Smokeout when I don't want such a harsh eyeliner and with a bit of blending mimics it's name, with a smoked out liner. Voodoo is a bright metallic purple, which I love to use to add a bit of colour to the eyes. Of course, Perversion for the intense black eyeliner. The pencil's are so long-lasting and perfect for any eye look.
