Valentine’s Day Makeup Tutorial


The season of love asks for a soft smoky eye and defined lashes. I recently uploaded this Instagram and I’ve been really thrilled with the way the pigment reflected in the photographs and taking it from Day to Night is the only plausible way to make an impact. 

I started my base with Nivea Aftershave Balm as recommended by NikkieTutorials and did my skin with Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation. Following up with Rockateur Blush by Benefit and Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit.  I did do something different with my concealer using Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer and setting it with Gosh Cosmetics Translucent Powder and using the baking technique.

Once I did the base, I used post-its to ensure my shadow has a crisp wing and crease. Use any taupe shade in the crease and a warm brown and chocolate brown, I’ve used Mocha, Latte and Creme Brulee by MakeupGeek . I then applied the Nightlife Pigment by MakeupGeek and patted dry all over the lid. This pigment is magic, bronzy, golden and amber in all the right places, reflecting a plethora of hues. I used mocha below my lash-line and then added lashes.

For finishing touches on my lips, I used Charlotte Tilbury in Pillowtalk and Urban Decay Naked Lipgloss in kinky.
