Good afternoon all! So I've been wanting to post this Valentines Makeup Tutorial for a while and this morning, despite being slightly hungover, managed to finally do so! I've already seen lots of gorgeous looks already on Youtube and other blogs and knew I wanted to join in. The look I've gone for is between two lipstick choices, with the eyes a 'barely there' approach. I know the boyfriend says he thinks I look nice with whatever makeup, but like most boys he probably prefers minimal. I couldn't decide how to wear my lips, so I've shown you the two options I've narrowed it down to. Let me know in the comments which you prefer!
Then I move on to my eyebrows. You may notice this is the same image from my 'Everyday Makeup routine' post. That's simply because I don't change my eyebrow routine, I guess i'm quite boring like that. To fill them in I use an angled brush and using the dark brown shade in my MUA Pro-Brow kid, I shape and contour my eyebrows.
And now my favourite part, the eyes! Firstly, I must mention that for some odd reason, the camera really struggled to pick up the pigmentation of the eyeshadows. So although it may look very light, it was actually a little darker than this. To begin, I add shade one (in my MUA undressed too palette) to the inner half of my eye and under my brows to highlight. Next I use shade two (From my MUA undressed palette) and blend this on the outer half of my eyelids and thoroughly blend outwards. I also ensure that I have blended the seam between shades one and two at this stage. Next I add the bronze eyeshadow (in my MUA undressed too palette) again to the outer corner of my eye, ensuring I avoid the areas I have blended the eyeshadow two outwards. Next I use my Miss Sporty Studio Lash eyeliner to do a cats eye flick to frame the eyes and make my lash line appear fuller. When going for a dramatic flick, I tend to stick to lash curling mascara formulas. My all time favourite being the Miss Sporty Fabulous lash (Curved Brush) and lightly coat my top and lower lashes. To finish I add my white Barry M Kohl Pencil to my lower water line to make my eyes brighter and appear larger.
Tadaa! the completed looks. I can't believe how different they look in each photo, even though it's only the lipstick colour changed? I am still completely undecided about which colour I'm going to go for and will probably end up deciding when I know what I'm going to wear. So, let me know what you think of my makeup look or if there's something you would like to see me blog about! As always it's been a pleasure!
