Get Ready With Me: Valentine's Look

So today is a get ready with me for if you are going out on a date, out with your friends or with your parents (I did last year) then this look is perfect! This year I decided to opt for a natural, pretty pink look which I find so cute.

For a primer I want something which is going to give me a radiant glow and gorgeous natural shine to my face which will make me look very healthy. This Loreal primer is a super soft and light base product that allows for your foundation to glide beautifully on your skin as well as achieving a dewy look.

If you are on a date then I would definitely opt for a full coverage foundation which doesn't look too heavy or cakey and the Loreal True Match is perfect for this. Its my go to forever and always!! I don't need any concealer and literally need about 1 layer of this for me to look spot free and have no redness at all. I use a buffing brush from Real Techniques and them together are a perfect combination for effortless, flawless skin.

The perfect product for covering them awful bags as well as brightening under my eyes is the Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer. I love the foam applicator as it is really soft under the eyes and blends the concealer all together so well. It provides a full coverage yet is so lightweight. 

I love this powder has an amazingly soft texture and provides medium coverage with a velvety matte finish. Its great for ensuring that I am not looking too dark with the Loreal foundation as it can be seen a little darker than usual and this powder is so natural with no cakeyness!

For a quick two in one product I have chosen my E.L.F Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in Antigua. Now this is perfect for taking to the toilets for a touch up as you have both your bronzer and blush. It blends really well on your face and can be so buildable. I am not massive fan of shimmery bronzers but it does help with this dewy look I am going for but adore the shimmery blush.

Highlighting my face is so important for me, especially on my cheek bones! This Beauty UK Baked Blush is amazing when the light hits your face as you see this beautiful pale pink shimmer.

I use this Rimmel white eyeliner for brightening my eyes to ensure my eyes look wide awake! This eyeliner is really soft (not hurting your waterline) and lasts all day, two things you need in an eyeliner!

For special occasions I always prime my eyes and this one is weirdly from the Tescos beauty range but it works so well and was incredibly cheap.

I love the pink shades from this MUA palette which I create a super pretty pink smoky eye from.

I like to use this Benefit eyeliner to make my mascara look thicker, if that makes any sense? I used to love this eyeliner but recently it has been becoming more and more dry and difficult to work with so it may have to go....

For clearly 'mega volume' I have chosen this Loreal mascara which does what it claims. It lengthens them so much and makes them look so full.

I am really getting into this lip liner trend at the moment and I am loving to use my Rimmel lip liner which I mentioned in a previous haul and lip tag. Its so soft and lasts all day.

I didn't want anything too bright on my lips as I think it can sometimes look a bit OTT so this Revlon crayon I just love! Demure is a super pretty light nude pink shade which gives a cute gloss and has an amazing buttery texture which is really comfortable on the lips.

And there we go! My look done and dusted! What products do you love for Valentines? Comment below.
