This could be a Valentine's Day look
Now I am not one to usually follow the herd and get consumed by the surge of Valentine ’s Day tutorials, gift guides and outfit ideas that grace our screens these days. I tend to steer well clear of them as it can all be a little too much valentine overload. But today I thought as I had a makeup look in mind to share with you guys at a later date, why don’t I just turn it into a Valentine ’s Day make up look. Smart. I know.
This look is most definitely not just for those spending it with that special someone but if you are having a girls day or just want to put makeup on your face, that’s cool. I combined a copper coloured eye with a maroon almost wine coloured lip. But obviously, you do not have to put an ounce of makeup on your face that day. I know I will be in a onsie having a bed and laptop day for sure. But I do wear this look every time I go out because I just lack originality.
I hope you like the look regardless of what you are doing or what day you choose to recreate this look. I just happened to take the thematic approach.

There is no magic trick behind this look really as I am just simply awful at applying makeup but I just packed the mono eyeshadow all over the lid and dragged it underneath my bottom eyelashes with the crease brush as it comes to a point which is great for that. Its also great to add a little brightness to the under eye area as the winged eyeliner can make your eyes appear smaller. I then did my everyday winged eyeliner and finished off the look with a maroon/deep red liquid lipstick. It didn’t budge all day and it stayed in place whilst I was eating with no touch ups required. I put some of my nuxe lip balm underneath to ensure it wouldn’t be drying on the lips.
There you have it. My valentine’s day look for any of you but my everyday going out look/I need to look somewhat decent for society for me.
Any plans for Valentine’s Day this year?
I 100% get it. Finding your personal style can be hard. It’s like finding who you are a person and where you fit into society. You want...
