Valentines Day | Make-Up

I don’t have any gripes with Valentines Day, in fact I think it’s a rather cute tradition. Couples should show their fondness of each other all year round, but to have that one special day gives them an excuse to share time together and maybe take their relationship a step further.

I’ve only celebrated Valentines Day one, and that was quite some time ago! Again, I shall be going it alone this year… I guess I’m still waiting for that Mr Right to show up, or maybe I’ve already found him but just don’t know it yet.

Never the less, I’m going out and celebrating tomorrow evening with my dear housemate Abbie. We have bough tickets to go and see a King Charles gig, which I’m so excited about! Last time I saw him he was amazing, so lets hope he is just as good! I mean, you can’t really go wrong spending your valentines night with King Charles now, can you?

Anyway, here is how I shall be doing my make up for the evening. I hope you like it…

I’m so sorry for the really bad lighting in these photos, my room is just so dark and dim that it’s hard to get a good photo.

For my eyes I used the NO7 Eye Shadow Palette, using colours from the Golden Trio, the Cappuccino Trio and the Chocolate Fondant Quad (numbers 9, 10 and 14 in the set). I absolutely love this set, the shades are all so natural and are really easy to apply, lasting a long amount of time.

As always, my lipstick is from Natural Collection in the colour Hazelnut. I can’t get enough of this recently! To make it last longer, I’d normally apply a layer of Clinique’s Long Last Gloss Wear in the colour Stellar Plumb, which is pretty much the same colour. However, I think this shade is limited edition and has gone out of stock which is such a shame as it’s gorgeous. The closest I can find in the same make is Bonfire which is almost exactly the same – just a touch lighter.

I hope you all have a great Valentines Day whether or not you’re single or in a relationship. Make it special!
