Valentine's Day Makeup and Outfit

Whether you're going to spend Valentine's Day with friends or family or a significant other it's nice to dress up and enjoy the festivities or just treat yourself and relax. 
This is what I'm going to wear and how I'm going to do my makeup on Valentine's Day this year.

I started with Benefit's Porefessional on a clean face and then followed up Loreal's True Match Foudantion making sure it's blended into my hair line and down my neck. I highlighted under my eyes with Collection's Illuminating Concealer. 

I finished off my base makeup with setting it using the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder focusing on my t-zone.

I used my Sleek Face Form to contour, highlight and add some blush.

I filled in my eyebrows using a Maybeline Brow Satin pencil. First using the pencil side and following it up with the powder on the opposite side of the pencil.

I started my eye makeup with the Maxfactor Excess Shimmer in copper. I swept this all over my lid using my finger. 

Using my Urban Decay Basics Palette I swept naked 2 into my crease.

I added faint into the outer corner to slightly darken up the look.

Using a big fluffy brush I put Venus into my inner corners.

I went back with an angled brush and used faint again pressing the powder into my upper and lower lash lines focusing on the outer half.

With Soap&Glory's Brown Eyeliner I lined my upper waterline.

I curled my lashes and applied two coats of Seventeen's Faslifeye HD Mascara. 

After using my lush lip scrub I applied some of Tanya Burr's lipgloss in Afternoon Tea. I blended it out with my finger to create a softer look. 

And there we have it. A light shimmery defined eye, bold eyebrows and a nude pink lip. 

This is what I'm going to wear on Valentine's Day. A very casual laid back look that's still a bit festive with a light pink top, ripped jeans and brown loafers.
