Sexy Vs Sweet Valentine's Makeup

Valentines Day Makeup Looks

Whether you're having a romantic dinner with your loved one or an anti-valentines night out with the girls, either way I have two very different makeup looks for February 14th. They both have the exact same face and eye makeup but the different lip colours create two very different looks. 
All makeup used is listed at the bottom of this post :)



1. PRETTY PINK


I'm a massive fan of girly pink makeup, and what better time than Valentine's to rock the pink cheeks and lips. Not only beautifully subtle but also flattering on so many skin tones. 
I used a dreamy gorgeous lipstick from Lancome in shade 302 Voile Rose (£22.50) to complete this makeup look.

2. VALENTINE'S VAMP


For those looking for something a bit different I used the Sleek Eau LaLa Liner in shade Venom from Boots (£4.99) for an alternative Valentine's look. The great thing about this liner is that it's multi-purpose and can also be used as an eyeliner too. 
For a more dramatic evening look, I recommend adding false eyelashes!

FACE AND EYE MAKEUP:


I applied Benefit - Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in shade Honey on top of moisturised skin, using my Beauty Blender applicator. I then applied Maybelline - Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer in shade Ivory under the eyes to brighten my dark circles, again using the Beauty Blender to dab it in to my skin. 
I added Revlon Bronzilla Bronzing Powder under my cheekbones, down the sides of my nose, and at the very top of my forehead to contour and maximise my features. Then I applied Stila Cheek Blusher to the apples of my cheeks using the Urban Decay Good Karma Blush Brush. Using this same brush, I lightly added No 7 Radiant Spheres Highlighter to the top of my cheek bones and down the centre of my nose to enhance bone structure and add a romantic glow to the skin. 

For the eyes, I used the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (see pic below). This has an amazing selection of neutral shades that can create a number of natural looks for day or night. Using the Urban Decay Good Karma Shadow Brush I firstly applied eyeshadow shade 'W.O.S' all over the eyelids,  right up to the brow bone. 
Using the same brush I added shade 'Venus' which is a shimmering pearl colour, to the very inner corners of the eyes to brighten and open them up. I also popped it under the brow bone to highlight. 
I then applied shade 'Naked 2' with the Sigma E35 brush, into the creases of my eyes to give some dimension, and finally I used the dark brown shade 'Faint' in the very outer creases of my eyes using the Real Techniques Shading Brush. 
I also use this palette when filling in my eyebrows.
I created two cat flicks with the Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner pen and then used L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara to finish.
