Pink Makeup Look and Nails for Valentine's Day

Ooops I did it again... I just can't resist wearing pink on Valentine's Day. Pink lips, pink and violet eye makeup, pink nails... I love it! I was worried that it might be a bit too much, but I think it looks ok :) I am not too sure about the lashes though. Let me know what you think :)

FACE: I am wearing Benefit Porefessional, Bourjois Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal Foundation(shade 53) and Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (shade SX06), Cargo Contour Palette in Malibu and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light (as a setting powder).

LIPS: I used Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in shade 12 Rose Neon. I dabbed it onto the lips for a stain-like effect. 

EYES: I used shades X-rated, Coax, Betrayal and Shellshock from Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette, Bourjois Liner Pinceau in Black, benefit They're Real Mascara and Eylure Naturalites Intense 146 falsies. If you click on the link, you will be able to see their shape. Quite cool and unusual.

BROWS: Urban Decay Faint Eye Shadow (from Naked Basics Palette)

On my nails, I am wearing a limited edition shade from Nails Inc. called Sloane Street*. It is a collaboration with The Fashion Innovation Agency and an emerging British designer Teatum Jones. You can buy it here for £12.00. I really like the finish of this shade. It is semi-matte and 2 coats give an opaque colour. You can add a glossy top coat, if you prefer a high shine finish.

There are two more shades available: David Longshaw's Hallam Street & Emma Shipley's Colville Mews. They are all limited edition and only available for 6 weeks, or while stock lasts.

What kind of makeup would you wear for a romantic Valentine's Day date?

  2. Gorgeous make up look! I also did a pink Valentine's make up look on my blog! :) xx


  3. I think the lashes look really nice with this look! It's dramatic, yes, but definitely not in a bad way :) I had a feeling when I first saw the picture that you used your UD Vice 2 palette; this is definitely something I'll have to try with mine! Thanks for sharing this look!

  4. I think I'm in love with those lashes. Beautiful! This whole look is much braver than I could ever pull off, I'm definitely not a pink person. ♥

  5. This is such a beautiful look! I always shy away from using pink shadow on my eyes, but perhaps I should be a bit more adventurous. I think for a Valentines date, I'd stick to wearing my usual winged out liquid liner, but with a neutral shimmer shadow across the lids and in the inner corner f my eyes to brighten them up, then wear a pretty cool-toned pink lippie with matching blush (:

  6. Love this! I went for pink on my eyes today as well using the Naked 3 palette. It's perfect for Valentines Day.

  7. The pink eyeshadow is really lovely!

  8. Love this look! Love wearing pink on my eyes x

  9. I love the look of pastel pink eyeshadow. One of my favourites.

  11. Love the eye makeup and I'm so glad I've found a fellow blogger who loves Kevyn Aucoin's sensual skin enhancer as much as I do!
