Today’s makeup look is all about Valentine’s Day! Since it’s just around the corner I wanted to do a flirty day time makeup look for this occasion. Starting with the base, I used the Makeup Forever Step 1 Hydrating Primer to give my complexion a nice glow. I really like using hydrating primers instead of mattifying ones. I then moved on to foundation and I applied the Makeup Forever HD Foundation in the shade #115 to even out my skin. This foundation is perfect if you want your makeup to last all day, it’s got a great coverage but still looks natural. After applying my favourite concealer, the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in the shade #15, I started contouring with my beloved NYX Contour Kit. I think this is the best affordable contour kit you can get. The contour shades are perfect for fair skin tones and the highlighters are just stunning.
I wanted to do a really soft and simple look for my eyes, nothing too dramatic. I decided to use my Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette because I think the shades in this palette are perfect for a soft, flirty makeup look. I used the shade Anaheim in my crease and Harajuku all over my lid. When I first bought this palette I thought that I’d never touch this shade but it actually works perfectly for a Valentine’s makeup look. It’s such a pretty, soft pink shade! Finally, after applying a few coats of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, I filled in my brows with the Essence Make Me Brow Gel and the Soap & Glory Brow Archery and I then applied my new favourite lipstick combination. NYX Lipliner in Mauve paired with Mac’s Twig lipstick is such a gorgeous combo. It makes my lips look fuller than they actually are and most importantly, it doesn’t dry out my lips at all.
