Simple Valentines

This valentines whether you've got a date with that special someone, or are having a pamper day with your mum, shopping with your girlies or just having some good old me time. Why not treat yourself, pull out that makeup bag and put your face on whilst listening to some of your favourite tunes. 
For a simple makeup look, why not opt for a subtle neutral smoky eye, bronzed highlights and that killer bold red lip.
Easy as 1,2,3 ... 4, 5.
To start off, choose your favourite base (foundation, BB cream or tinted moisturiser). I opted for my Lancome Teint Idole Foundation applying all over the face with a stipple brush. Then conceal under the eyes, forehead and cupids bow to add dimension to the face to get rid of that 2D effect. Only add to the areas the sun would naturally hit, I used the Make-up Forever full coverage concealer one shade lighter than my foundation.
After applying that flawless base, its time to work on those eyebrows. Remember eyebrows are sisters not twins so don't worry if they don't look completely identical. To get the perfect brows for me, I'm using the Collection Eyebrow Kit in the darkest shade of the trio with the provided eyebrow brush. I follow the natural shape and fill in lightly so they don't look OTT! After setting with brow gel I finish the look by highlighting my eyebrows and neatening them with some concealer.  
It's now time to set everything together, for under the eyes I opt for my trusty Ben Nye Banana Powder. Then for the rest of the face, I powder lightly with my Real Techniques powder brush using Gosh Prep n Prime translucent powder. To contour I always reach for the Sleek Contour Kit in medium and my Real Techniques contour brush for my cheek bones, chin, jaw-line and forehead near the hairline. To add that goddess glow I reached for my Collection bronze glow ultimate to highlight my cheekbones and the Collection bronze glow mosaic to highlight my forehead, nose bridge, cupids-bow and chin. To add a little colour to the cheeks go for a sweet rosy colour, I lightly added Collection blush in Cheeky the perfect pink to make the boys wink.   
To achieve that subtle smoky eye, I picked the Collection eyes uncovered nude bronze palette. I used the darkest bronze shade for the smoky outer corners of my eyelid working it into the crease, followed by the golden copper colour for the lid and blending them both together to ensure I had no harsh lines. Finally for the inner corners of the eyelid I used the light nude brown to brighten and waken up the eyes. For mascara I opted for the Collection big fake curves mascara to add some volume and length to the lashes without making them look to dramatic. 
For that killer bold lip I outlined my lips and filled slightly, using Nars Scarlett Empress, a plum purple lipstick to give the lips a subtle ombre effect and add dimension. Then I finished it off by using the Collection Deluxe Lipstick in Silent Movie.

This Valentines a simple make-up look is all you need to be that PYT! Seal the deal with taking that flawless instagram picture.
