Valentines Day Smoky Eye





Valentines day is all about who you love right? When we say love with think of love hearts and the colour pink, so pink is the colour of today. 

I started by applying Maybelline Color 24hr Tattoo in Pink Gold (£4.99) to the my eyelid as a base. I then grabbed my MUA palette in Undressed (£4) and put shade 2 on the centre of my eyelid to add dimension and shade 1 in the inner corner to highlight.  I then grabbed my Calvin Klein Tempting Glimmer Sheer Creme Eyeshadow in Sage Shimmer (poundland) and applied it to the outer V of my eyelid and down under my lower lash line a little. I blended all of these together to get a subtle edge, you can always add more product if you want a darker smoky eye.

I used the Bourjois Liner Feautre Eyeliner (£6.99) in black and took it a little above my upper lash line, I then took it out and created a small wing to elongate my eyes. I used my Maybelline Volume Express Colossal (£7.19) to create volume to my eyelashes but I decided I wanted more length too. So I used my fake eyelashes from eBay (£1.19) and applied them using Revlon Dark Lash Adhesive  (£5.19) which did the trick. I actually did my eyebrows first but I used an MUA Matte Eyeshadow in Shade 19 (£1) . 

I really like how this look came out and it's super girly. This would be something I would wear out on a daily basis or to a glamorous evening, so it's a win win situation. 



My boyfriend was cute enough to write me a card and give me a rose, I love both to pieces. However valentines day isn't just about your other half, is about appreciating those around you and what you have already. 

Have a great valentines day, 
love,

    1. Just practise and be patient! I'd also advise to use clear drying adhesive if you're practising so that it doesn't ruin your whole eye make up if you get it anywhere :) x
