Easy Valentine FOTD !

Hi there, girls, i don't know about you but i always associate Valentines day with Red Lips. So i thought I'd show you a really easy look which is a my take on the perfect look for a day of love.

Products used:


Just 5 products and some flirty lashes to add some fluttering.
1. Chanel Pro Lumier foundation
2. Sleek Blush in Scanalous
3. Clinique High impact mascara in Black
4. Estee Lauder Pure Colour Lippy in Red Hot
5. Clinique lip liner in Rich Red.


Lashes IB04 from Ebay here 5 pairs for £4.68
I specifically choose these lashes as they have an invisible backbone. This makes them a lot easier to blend in with your own lashes :)
I kept the eyes really plain. No eyeshadow or liner. The lashes and mascara alone give enough oomph to the eyes and keeps the emphasis on the Red lips.


The sleek blusher is limited edition and it's a beautiful bright red which gives such a natural flush. It's my favourite of the blushes so far. Easy to blend, highly pigmented and under £5.


The Red lips cant get much brighter but if you can't wear Red on Valentines and get away with it then when can you?
Estee Lauder Pure Colour Lipsticks are really creamy and this colour is ultra pigmented.


To keep eyes natural i applied a coat of mascara, added the lashes as close to the lashline as possible. Curled the lashes and mine gently which helps blend them together and applied mascara to the bottom lashes.
I didn't want to add liner as i wanted the look to be fresh looking and the liner would of been too much with such full on lips.

Will you be Rocking the Red on Valentines day or do you prefer a slightly more subtle lip colour?

  16. Thanks everyone, red is something i rarely wear as i feel a bit out there with it if you know what i mean. I knew my blogging friends would appreciate such a bold colour ha.

    Do you find people seem to stare at you when you wear a bright lippy? Maybe its just me being paranoid?
