Valentines Make Up Inspiration

27/01/16

CUPID is on his way and whatever you have plans for, I have 3 looks for you  to create.

 

1. DINNER AND DRINKS 

BEING treated to a romantic evening out, I have the perfect make up look. Start with a good coverage foundation and a brightening concealer under your eyes. Once powdered, take a small amount of bronzer in light sweeping motions and subtly contour your cheeks. Moving onto your eyes, line your top lash line with gel or liquid liner carrying it out and up into a gorgeous cat eye flick. Mascara or falsies, whatever you prefer, but keep your lower lash line to a minimum either leaving as it is or use only a small amount of mascara. Lips are the main attraction for this look with a matte red, long lasting lip stick! Beautiful.

2. ROMANTIC NIGHT IN 

CANDLE lit dinner and movie night on the sofa, we’re going to take the look more natural. Start with light coverage foundation or BB cream and a brightening concealer for under your eyes. Set with powder and use a pink blush for the apples of your cheeks. If you feel like you need to contour then keep it to a minimum otherwise move onto your eyes with a lick of mascara on both top and bottom lashes. For the lips we’re going to stay pretty in pink but it’s down to you whether you opt for a super sexy glossy lip or prefer the matte look.

3. GIRLS NIGHT OUT 

HEADING out on the town with the girls? Begin with a full coverage foundation and strong contour. Highlight the tops of your cheekbones, brow bone and down the nose. Set with powder. Using different shades and tones of  golds, browns, and blacks create a smokey eye blending with a fluffy brush. Create a dramatic flick with liquid or gel liner on your top lash line. Line the bottom lash line using the same shades you created your smokey eye with, starting with the lightest shade on the inner corner and getting darker toward the outer eye and blend. Using a black eye pencil, line your water line and add lots of mascara and apply falsies if you wish. Finishing with the lips, bring out your grunge glam side using a beautiful shade of plum.
