My Valentine’s day makeup…

Happy Valentine’s day!

A day of love and romance.  I actually believe that love should be celebrated and made  a fuss of any day  of the year, but hey lets get back to this specific day.  This is  a day most will share with their partners, husbands, lovers  etc.  But its not just about romantic love.  Love goes beyond that.  It’s about extending that hand of friendship to someone who you may not reach out to usually.  Remembering people from your past, remembering people or family who may have lost someone, remembering your single friends and family, widows and widowers or even forgiving someone who has wronged you!  The last one can be difficult but definitely doable, life is too short!:-)

As I write these things, I’m also talking to myself. Now if you opt to stay in by yourself, watch romcoms and eat chocolates or not celebrate it at all, it all definitely works. How ever you decide to spend it, have an open heart and enjoy your day…

Okay back to the makeup….

This year I’ve opted for  a soft glam Valentines day look.  The colours I’ve chosen would work across a spectrum of skin tones. This can be worn out on a date or if your out with friends or family.

I used the Naked 3 palette to create a pink soft smokey eye.

Hi beauties,

On a recent trip to MAC cosmetics I purchased some goodies which I can’t wait to try out.


Described as a luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. This powder   is a pressed powder highlighter and comes in 5 different shades. I got the Gold Deposit shade.     I actually wanted the Iridescent powder but its been discontinued. Apparently Mac has discontinued many lines  this past year.


I will use this to highlight

3.STUDIO FIX FOUNDATION:NW44                     

I wanted to try a matte foundation for my combination skin.  I know it can be quite heavy if too much is applied. It looked nice on in the store, but then it always does. ..

4. FLUIDLINE EYE-LINER GEL:                              

5.TECHNAKOHL EYELINER -RISQUE:                                     

MAC products may not always be the most penny friendly cosmetics on the market, but they are also  not the most expensive and  they do produce some quality items.  I will do a  post on good less expensive  alternatives which I also use.  Have you used any of these? How did you find them?

I’m looking forward to using these products and will let you know how I get on.

Until next time..
