Valentine's Day Makeup

If you read my blog regularly then you'll be familiar with me trying to embrace every season more and the events that come within them. Although Valentine's Day has never been one of my favourites, I've been picking out all of my pink blushers, dewy bases and red lipsticks ready to trial out all the best, long lasting combinations. 

To start with I have been using the Illamasqua Hydra Viel, a primer/hydrator hybrid that creates a great nourished base which is perfect for my top foundation pick - The Bourjois Healthy Mix. Of course I will follow with an under eye concealer in the form of Bourjois Radiance Reveal and the Sleek Cream Contour* to help define my cheekbones. 

For eyes, I'm going to go back to the classic Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette to create a soft, smokey eye with ease. All the colours that I need are in the palette and as I want to achieve a pretty, feminine look, I think this is my best bet. With a quick slick of mascara and application of a winged eyeliner, my eye makeup will be done in no time. 

The Milani Rose Blusher is the blush I'm going to be reaching for and not only because of the rose embossed detail, but because it delivers a matte, pink hue perfect for perking up my lacklustre skin. I'm going to go all out with highlighter so I look as glowy as possible. Although I've been enjoying using many different highlighters lately, it's the The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer that has my heart at the moment as the honey hued offering is perfect for my skin tone and can be used all over easily. 

I recently did a whole post about my Valentine's Day lipstick, all about the different formulas and finishes that are smooch proof. If I had to narrow it down to one it would have to be the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick, a much talked about product at the moment which helps to plump and create the illusion of fuller lips with it's pink/nude shade. Who knows, I might even bring a darker liquid lipstick to switch into if I'm feeling a little bit daring after all the pizza I'll be eating. 

What makeup are you wearing this Valentine's Day?
