I’ve never really been one for Valentines Day, and I never really have big plans for it. But the weather is starting to lighten up, and so is my makeup. Despite no big Valentines Day plans this year I’ve come up with a makeup look to mark the occasion.
To start with I’m using my Bourjois Happy Light Serum Primer, which gives my a nice base to start on, and helps to make my skin a bit dewy looking. Then I use The Body Shop Cool Vitamin E BB Cream which creates a nice natural base, and also helps to make my skin look natural. I then use my favourite Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealor to cover up the dark circles under my eyes and any blemishes I have. I then set my foundation with the Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder, which is great for keeping my foundation in place all day. Then as usual I fill my eyebrows in using the shade Faint from my Naked Basics Palette, and then use my Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara. Then I use my Body Shop Shimmer Waves*, which I think is great for this time of year as not only does it give a bit of colour in my cheeks, but its great to create a shimmering highlight. I’m really loving makeup from The Body Shop at the moment, and they also have a great range of gift ideas from The Body Shop too. I then finish off my Valentines Day look with my favourite lipstick from Soap & Glory, Pink Blush, which is a gorgeous matte soft pink colour.
I think this is a great look whether you have a big date planned, a night in with your partner, or just an everyday look for this time of year.
