Good morning & good afternoon my little love bunnies, can you believe that it’s valentines day soon? Whether you’re a valentines day supporter or not, it does give a good excuse to head out for dinner or do something special like write up this blog post when you otherwise wouldn’t. As for me personally, I’m not the biggest Valentines day supporter. I mean after almost six years Haden & I have well and truly passed the need to go all out on one specific day when we love and celebrate each other every day of the year as it is anyway BUT it does give a nice excuse to go out for dinner and buy a pretty card.
So in honour of the big day – and any of my readers who might be heading out to town with someone special this February 14th – I thought I would rummage through my makeup collection and pick out my most loveable makeup picks that will add a little more romance to your day!
Too Faced hangover 3in1 spray // Looks good, smells good & works as a v trusty primer. Spritz a little of this on to your face before applying foundation and watch your makeup melt into your skin for that natural radiant look.
STILA Magnificent Metals Rose Gold Retro // Glitter is always a yes in my books so I really don’t feel the need to explain to you why this is a total necessity if you want to go glam for valentines date night! Rose gold retro is honestly one of my absolute favourite shades – I mean it’s rose gold… duh – from the magnificent metals collection and after using these bad boys I doubt that I’ll be using regular glitter anymore.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation // Can ‘kiss‘ my man all night while wearing this and this does a pretty good job of lasting. On the list for obvs reasons.
Too Faced Love Hangover Blush // Cute love heart packaging? Check. Cute romantic names? Check. Pigmented and blendable. Check again. Heck, let’s just call it a check mate because these blushes are perf for any day, but in particular Valentines day.
Huda Beauty Crush liquid lipstick // Crushin’ on someone? Don’t worry Huda’s got your back because that special someone is gonna be crushing on your lips while you’re wearing this cute peach liquid lipstick. One of the most comfortable liquid lip formula’s that i’ve worn in a v long time and it smells like a vanilla dream – just make sure to line your lips or go over it with a second coat for extra opaque-ness.
Mecca Power Couple Mascara // You and your date are the Power Couple of the night but just for a little extra cred. why not add Mecca’s Power Couple mascara to your lashes. I did a recent post on this mascara here and you guys seemed to really love the results it had on my lashes!
Too Faced Love Eyeshadow Palette // Too Faced really kill it with their romantic packaging. With shade names like Devotion, Puppy Love, Smitten, Cherish, Amorous, Darling, Passion and more it’s easy to see why I chose this as a v appropriate eyeshadow palette. Plus, how cute is the fact that shadows themselves are embossed with little love hearts and the centre shades are in a heart shaped pan!
What are your thoughts on Valentines day? Do you celebrate it or do you despise it?
Until next time,
Love, Angela xx.
