Valentines Make Over

Hi ladies its been a while since my last blog! 

Valentines Day is upon us so whether you’ll be with your significant others or relaxing with the girls the idea of pampering yourself on this special day is quite exciting ! I borrowed Sian for an hour or so to demo a Valentines day look on her. I asked her a few questions regarding where she would be going and together we created a look perfect for her evening ahead!
Firstly as always, prep your skin this will ensure the makeup sits evenly and lasts all through the night! I used Elemis Beauty Balm which is a nourishing moisturiser and primer in one, perfect for not overloading the skin! 
The look we were going for was a soft smoky eye and classic red lips. So we began with the eyes, using Urban Decays Naked 3 palette. Using a matte colour like Strange this was brushed over the entire lid. Then choosing a darker shade- Darkside this was then applied into the outer corner of the eye socket blending into the crease of the eye- this is what gives the smokiness around the eye area, just remember to blend, blend, blend! 
To add intensity to the smoky eye look you have created you can always add Blackened Heart to the corners to add even more depth. At this point its completely up to you whether you would like a soft smoky eye or a more sultry look. 
Then apply the rest of your foundation, on Sian I used Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation in Honey Beige. Apply using your fingers or a brush, remember to always blend into the jaw line to avoid any harsh lines. Finish by dusting Laura Mercier loose powder in rich vanilla over the T-zone area this will finish the rest of the look with a dewiness. For a blusher I gently swept over Mac Mineralise Blush over the cheekbones enhancing and illuminating. 
Now to finish off, choose your perfect shade of red and pucker up. Sian is wearing Mac Ruby Woo.
Simple, sexy and sultry !
Happy Valentines day  and feel free to book in with me if you would like to create a new look or perfect one you have already tried.
