Valentine's Day Makeup Essentials

I could have sworn it was Christmas a week ago right? Can't quite believe we are almost half way into February! With Valentine's Day literally just days away and a lot of us girls will be digging out our impressive makeup look, I decided now was the perfect time to share some of my Valentine's Day makeup essentials, which can be worn both during the day and evening.

Makeup Revolution Goddess of Love Highlight - If you are out to impress someone or just want to achieve a healthy glow that'll come up lovely in photographs, a highlighter is perfect. I always reach out for the Makeup Revolution highlighters because they are so inexpensive and easy to apply. Just a dab into a makeup brush and onto your cheek and brow bones and poof! Done. It doesn't last all day but it does give you a really nice finish for hours and looks lovely in photographs.

MAC 'Chatterbox' Lipstick - One of the first MAC lipsticks I ever purchased was Chatterbox so it has been in my drawer for quite sometime and yet I still absolutely adore it. This is the perfect pink lip shade for both day and night depending on the rest of your makeup. This glides on my lips so easily and lasts such a long time! I much prefer a pink to a red for Valentine's Day makeup.

Makeup Forever Aqua Matic Eyeshadow Sticks - Not usually a fan of eyeshadow sticks but these two 'metallic golden taupe' and 'satiny flesh' shades have changed my mind. These eyeshadows can be found at Precious About Makeup* an online destination store for professional make-up artists and beauty fanatics, offerings the best brands on the market. These eyeshadow sticks are perfect for creating a natural and subtle makeup look that only takes a few minutes. They are super easy to glide on the lids and create a lovely shimmer that lasts a good few hours. These are great if you are in a rush and don't have time for playing with eyeshadow palettes.

Too Faced Blushing Heart - I definitely mentioned this in last year's V'Day blog post and it is no surprise I am mentioning it again. I love this blusher! Just swirl your blusher brush into the product and apply to the cheeks to create a healthy, shimmery finish. I like swirling my brush into all 3 of the shades to create a beautiful finish. You only need a small amount as a little really does go a long way and it will stay on your cheeks all day long without touch ups!

  5. I have the MR dupe of the Too Faced Blush as it is such a pretty colour. Those MUFE eye shadow sticks sound lovely, i used to hate eye shadow sticks too until i tried some from KIKO.
