Sneak peek of my valentines look. Will be on the blog next week. #pinkandblackaffair #pinkandblack #valentinesmakeup #valentinesmakeuplook #beautyblogger #beautybloggers #makeup #makeupbyme #makeupartist #makeupartistbirmingham #bblogger #bbloggers #bbloggersuk #beauty #macpigments #barrympigments #alternativelook #eyeshadow #eyes #makeupideas #mua #muabirmingham
For the base I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC25 (£25.50) which I warmed up with a contour using the L.A. Girl Pro HD concealers. (For a review and tutorial on these click here.) On the brows I used Revlon Brow Fantasy in Dark Brown (£5.50).
Now for the eyes. I used Barry M Dazzle Dust in Athena (£4.59) over the lid and MAC Black Black pigment (£16) on the outer corner. I mixed these with Kiko Mixing Solution (which is on offer at £1.90 at the moment!) to get the most out of the colour. I used the mixing solution to make the pigment into a paste which makes it easier to apply and longer lasting. I blended in the crease with a dark brown matte eyeshadow. To get the shape of the flick I used liquid liner and blended this into the shadow. I highlighted the inner corner and under the brow with Kiko Colour Sphere Eyeshadow in Golden White (£5.90). I then applied my falsies!
On the cheeks, I am wearing Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Pink Explosion (£31.00) and lips are Kiko Smart lipstick in Intense Rose (£3.90).
I have used a mix of high end, high street and drug store products here to show you don't always need to spend a fortune to get a gorgeous look! I think the look is perfect for Valentines day, subtle but sexy at the same time!
What do you think of the look? What colours are you going for? I would love to hear from you. Happy Valentine's Day!
