The Lo Down - My Valentine's Day Makeup Look

Hey Guys and Dolls,

I like Valentine's Day every year as it means my birthday is coming up tomorrow. I know the excitement of it all, I'm going to be the big 27 this year. I don't know how I feel about that yet but I feel happy and positive all the same. I didn't get to see Daragh today cause he's been working but I've been talking to him and he's having a chilled out day since he finished work so I'm glad. We're going to do something fun this weekend to celebrate Valentine's Day and my birthday so I can't wait for that.
So today's post is going to be my Valentine's Day makeup look which I'm pretty excited to show you guys. It's a smokey eye using some of my favourite MAC eyeshadows and my new favourite foundation & concealer duo from Loreal. This look was so easy to create and would be amazing for any occasion not just Valentine's Day.
This is how I got the look. First off I prepped my skin with my favourite moisturiser, Moisturiser Lite from Nimue Skincare. Next I applied Loreal True Match foundation all over my face along with the matching concealer in places where I needed that extra bit of coverage and I use the shade Vanilla, it's the perfect match. I applied both these products using the Louise Young Super Foundation brush, I've had this in my brush collection for ages and I recently discovered it and have been using it ever since. It's a old gem of mine. I used Coppering, a shimmery copper shade all over the lid with Sketch and Texture in the crease. I think this creates a beautiful subtle smokey eye which I love alot. Lastly I applied Max Factor's Fusion mascara, this is my favourite mascara from the brand I use it so much. It really opens my eyes and give the best volume imaginable. Of course I love the packaging as it's my favourite colour in the world, Purple. Lastly I applied some lipstick and today I used Charlotte Tilbury's The Queen Matte Revolution lipstick. This is a recently released Limited Edition shade and it's beautiful. I'm not big into reds but this looks so pretty on and applies like a dream. I've been using it quite a bit lately and I really like it.

That's my Valentine's Day Makeup Look as you can see it was quick and easy. I'll definitely do more posts like this soon as I find them so much fun to do so certainly keep an eye out.
