Valentine's Look

Today is Valentine's Day, so I thought I would share a look that would be really pretty if you're looking for something a little bit different to do with your makeup. I think this look is perfect for going out on date, or even just out with friends. It would also be really pretty for anytime, so I thought I would share it with you. It turned out to be a really pretty pink and purple toned smokey eye, with a nude lip to keep it looking neutral and balanced.


Firstly I prepped my skin with moisturiser and eye cream. I then applied Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and set my makeup with powder. I avoid foundation because I prefer my skin without it most of the time and it keeps the look super natural. I then swept a Sleek blush from the Lace palette in Guipure. For my eyes, I used the Next Pink palette (which is actually really good quality considering Next isn't a makeup specialist!)  and applied a pink shade across my whole lid and then blended an ashy purple in my crease. This palette may have been limited edition, but the colours are really pink toned with a few greys and silvers, so palettes with those tones are perfect. I used a liquid liner pen to draw a thin line over my upper lash line and blended some liner along my lower lash line. I finished the look with mascara and applied MUA Nude Lipstick in Shade 14 'Bare'.


Of course, you could always change it up, by using a much more pigmented blush or a bright red or pink lipstick, but for Valentine's, I thought this looked really understated. 

Happy Valentine's Day!
