Valentines day is just around the corner, so if you want to find some easily accessible cosmetics for your valentines makeup look then this post is for you! All the products used to create this look are all from the drugstore to save you some pennies.

This is part two of my valentines posts, In my last post I showed you some of my Valentines clothing picks, from a night on the town to a takeaway in-front the TV – check it out here

A full list of products used with links and prices is at the bottom of this post!

My first step was to sort my non existent brows out! I always do this first so I have it marked out where to place my eye shadow and how far to blend it out. Today I tried out the Collection Brow Pomade for the first time, and to be totally honest I didn’t really like this! It was a little oily and because of that it lacked pigment – i’d recommend the Makeup Revolution one instead! Regardless I went over with a brown eye-shadow and they turned out fine.

As soon as I thought of Valentines I thought of this palette. The ColourPop Hi-Maintenance palette is one of my holy grails and they’re sooo cheap they had to make it in this post. I used a transition colour (light warm brown) from another palette, then used the pink to build up colour in my crease and began to blend it up and out further to create a smokey look. I then took the darkest colour (a darker pink with a slight purple hue) on a more defined brush and deepened up the outer corner and crease.

Now for the star of the show! This Max Factor Colour Precision Highlighter is the most gorgeous shimmery pink colour – looking back, I could have used this as a liquid highlighter too! I carved out my eyelid using some concealer and a precise brush, and then patted on the rose gold colour from the ColourPop palette. Then I coated the entire rose gold section of my eye with the liquid eyeshadow for a blinding pink shimmer.

I felt like this eye-shadow look was too dramatic to not have a winged eyeliner and lashes! For eyeliner I used the New Look Flick Dip Eyeliner and then coated my lashes with the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast mascara.

Eylure lashes are my favourite and super accessible in most drugstores. These pair have fast became my go to, if you love a wispy and textured lash, these are for you!

Eyes are done and now it’s time to start on your base! I quickly primed using the NYX Angel Veil and then slapped on the Maybelline 24hr Foundation. Another first impression from this product, but I can definitely say it is suuuuper full coverage and lasts all day!

I concealed using the new cult favourite MUR Conceal and Define (dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape and only £4!) to brighten up my under eyes and used a darker shade to contour with. (I didn’t have a powder bronzer from the drugstore to show in this post – sorry! – but just for reference, I used the Too Faced Sweetheart Bronzer in Sweet Tea).

I powdered my entire face using the Collection Lasting Perfection powder – which was a HUGE bargain for £3.99, it even comes with a compact case holding a mirror and sponge (also became a place where I store my lashes!).

I set my face with the NYX Dewy Finish setting spray before highlighter, to make it pop even more. NYX also do this setting spray in a matte finish if that’s what you prefer! For highlighter I used my all time favourite from ColourPop in shade Flexitarian.

Last but not least! I used everyday liquid lipstick from MUR in shade Bow Down. This lipstick actually comes in a kit with a lip-liner just like the Kylie Lip Kits, and is a great dupe!

  1. Your makeup looks amazing! I love this foundation and concealer at the minute, they gave me such amazing coverage all day on Saturday and lasted for at least 12 hours! If you’re looking for a new brow pomade I recently picked up the Eylure one in Superdrug and I really like it, it doesn’t seem to dry out as quick as the Makeup Revolution one!
