Romantic make-up… just in time for Valentine’s Day

WHILE I’m not a huge fan on Valentine’s Day, I love an excuse to try out a new beauty look, and I love playing around with romantic colours to create a soft blush look perfect for the “big day”. 

Through playing around with bronzes, golds, blushes and oranges I found one of my favourite eye products of the last few months – Sleek’s i-Art liquid colour in Symbolism which takes five seconds to apply and gives your lids the perfect wash of burnished bronze which I absolutely love! It’s now nestled in my bathroom cabinet next to my toothbrush so even when I don’t have time to do a full look, I can just slick this colour on, smudge it in, whack on a bit of mascara and I’m ready to go! AND it’s £7. Such a bargain!

Eyebrows were shaped using Benefit’s Goof Proof gel pencil which I have found invaluable over the last few weeks and my eyebrows have been looking fantastic.

To create a radiant base, I used a Pur Minerals correcting primer which I’ve had in my collection for years but gives the perfect amount of coverage when you just want to even out skin. It has a lovely powdery finish. I layered this over Diego Dalla Palma’s Radiance Booster and finished with Beauty Pie’s Pro-Glow Highlighter in Cosmic Shine.


To add an extra boost on my cheekbones I used a touch of Girl Meets Pearl by Benefit, and finished off using Charlotte Tilbury’s Instant Look palette.

This look was finished using Illamasqua’s Glamore lipstick in Soaked which is lovely and orange and instantly one of my new favourite shades. Now being kept in my handbag for beauty emergencies.

Valentine’s Day may be just round the corner, and let’s face it, a totally ridiculous day to celebrate a relationship, or lack thereof, but there’s still plenty of time to play around with many more romantic make-up looks!
