This year my partner and I aren’t celebrating Valentine’s Day – we’re putting the money we’d spend on each other into our house fund – plus he’s away for work! That doesn’t mean that I’m not getting into the spirit of things however, as myself and a gal pal are having a movie date which is going to be the ideal way to spend the evening! I’m still going to (attempt to) make my face look pretty and Valentine’s themed, so I thought it’d be the perfect time to share with you another look at some of the makeup I’m loving and think perfectly appropriate for a Valentine’s date night!
A fuller coverage yet natural looking base is a look I’ve been loving recently and the combination of the Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation, Urban Decay All-Nighter Concealer and CoverFX Illuminating Setting Spray does just that. No more than 2/3 of a pump of the foundation with the concealer under my eyes and I feel more confident than ever! I feel that it can make my face feel a little flat so I always use the CoverFX spray to give myself that healthy glow! I’m also loving cream highlighting at the moment so the Luma Cosmetics Highlighting Stick in Cashmere Casbah is perfect on my cheekbones – I still add some of Becca Skin Perfector Pressed in Moonstone to top it off but it gives the most beautiful effect! Adding to the healthy glow is the Too Faced Sweethearts Blush to give a gentle and natural flush of colour that goes with any makeup look! For the eyes I’m combining the Chosungah 22 Honey Palette in 01 for the crease/lid and the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma all over the lid to create a beautiful pinky glitter eye look. It’s a combination I definitely recommend for a date night – or any day or night in general! Topped off with the Too Faced Better than Sex Waterproof Mascara – I love this mascara in the original and waterproof versions and this is just what I have open right now – it gives the most beautiful effect on the lashes! For the lips I’m using the Smashbox Always On Liquid Matte Lipstick in Fair Game as I received these recently from Mecca and have been testing out (and enjoying!) the formula. To top it off I love to wear a fragrance when I’m doing something a bit more special than everyday errands – so the Kat Von D Sinner Perfume is the perfect fit – it also lives in my handbag so there’s no way I’ll leave the house without it!
What are your Valentine’s Day plans?
