Today I decided to do a Blog Post on the Makeup I wore today for Valentines day. In a rush I done my makeup in the car hence the seat belt. I decided to do a red lip and keep the eyeshadow minimal. I usually love a nude lip and and focus on the eyes but today I decided to do something a bit different. I moisturized and put my primer on before I left the house. Here is the list of makeup products I used today.
WHAT MAKEUP I AM WEARING TODAY FOR VALENTINES DAY
The Foundation I decided to wear today was the Nars sheer matte foundation. This was my first time using the matte version of the Nars foundation, and on first impression I love it. Its matte but not too matte that it drys to your face, it still has a glow to it. It lasted throughout the day and I didn’t need to touch up my makeup. The color I wore was Punjab.
The one concealer I absolutely love is the Mac Pro Longwear. This concealer is the best I honestly have tried every concealer from rimmel to Cle de peau which is probably the most expensive makeup item I bought and will NOT repurchase!! I applied the Mac concealer under my eyes and around my nose where it is abit red from the cold weather. Highly recommend this concealer <3 the color I use is Nc20
I recently repurchased the Mac Mineralize skinfinsih Natural, not having used this in years I decided to give it ago as I just ran out of my Rimmel stay matte powder. The Mac powder is great but the price difference between the Rimmel and The Mac one when there is not much difference. I still love it though and It will last me a good while. The mac powder is amazing for oily skin to keep it under control. I wear the Light Plus powder.
I decided to wear a bit of bronzer to contour my face. When I wear a bold lip I tend to just wear bronzer and no Blush as I feel wearing blush and doing a bold lip is too much for during the day on me. The bronzer I wore today was the Nars Laguna bronzer. This is one of my old time favorite bronzers and always go back to it because its perfect for my skin color.
When I do a bold lip I tend to do a very simple eye look. Using just the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette I used just two eyeshadows from that palette. I used the eyeshadow strange and Trick. The color strange is a pale color I like to use in the inner corner of my eye and lid. I then applied the color trick in the outer corner of my eye and I also used it around my bottom lashes. I also have a review and swatches on this palette 🙂
whether Its a night look or a day look I love wearing eyeliner. I just feel it really goes well when wearing eyeshadows and I love doing winged eyeliner. The eyeliner I wore today was the Maybelline liquid eye studio master duo in Black. This eyeliner stays perfect all day without smudging. It makes your lashes look thicker and longer aswell.
Surprise, surprise I used my favorite mascara at the moment the Ysl babydoll mascara. This mascara is amazing <3 It makes your lashes look so long and thick. I hardly ever wear false lashes but when I wear this I get so many compliments.
Lipstick and Lip Gloss
For my bold red lip I used the Rihanna Hearts Mac collection. I used her most popular lipstick color in Riri Woo which is a matte red. I topped that off with Rihannas Riri Woo lipglass. This is the most pigmented red lipglass I think I have ever used. I love wearing these two because It lasts so long throughout the day.
