Valentines Day Get Ready With Me

With the 14th February swiftly knocking on the door I thought it only right that I do a Valentine’s get ready with me. Whether you’re going out with someone special, having a mates date or you want to look good sitting at home with a pizza and ice-cream for one, here’s a look for you. 
Prior to getting ready for an event or trip out I like to prep my skin and hair so before going for a shower I used a face mask from Mudmasky to minimise my pores and smooth out my skin. I also cleansed my skin using a coconut face scrub from Treacle Moon and toned my skin using the daily cleansing wipes from Nip and Fab. I don’t like to use too many products in my hair but when I curl my hair I do like to treat my tresses with a leave in conditioner, this time opting for a Keratin Protein mask from Hask to ensure my hair was nice and healthy.

Products Used For this Look:
YSL Touche Èclat Blur Primer
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in shade 1N1
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in shade 1
Laura Mercier Invisible Setting Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Nars Orgasm
Makeup Revolution Highlighting Trio in the Rose shade
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
Makeup Revolution Highlighting Trio in the golden shade
Tarte Amazonian Brow Mousse
Soap and Glory Arch De Triumph
Lime Crime Perlees Lipstick in the shade Gemma
NYX Mechanical Lip Pencil in Nude

With naturally curly hair I opted for tight curls with lot’s of volume, a quicker hairstyle for me than straightening my lengths. 

Your outfit really depends on your plans on the day but I have opted for a nude longline blouse with pleated detail at the back paired with a pair of leather look trousers and nude flats. My ideal casual outfit. With the dark eye and metallic lip I wanted to keep my outfit quite simple. I chose not to pair my look with a bag and instead just took my burgundy Michael Kors purse.

  5. Love the colours! Specially the lipstick.

  6. I love those nude flats, they look comfy too which is a must for Valentine's Day as you don't want to be hobbling around in shoes that hurt your feet or are that have heels which are too high. That is such a lovely colour of lipstick as it has a metallic tinge to it as well :)
