Valentines Day Make up Step By Step - Dusty Rose Eyes , Double Wing & a Red Lip

Not sure what kind of make up to do on yourself on Valentines Day? Look no further , wither your spending Valentines nights on a date or going out partying with your single friends this look will is perfect for the occasion and will look great on everyone . Here is a step by step tutorial on how I created this double winged , dusty rose eye with a red lip look.(that was a bit of a mouthful)

Face Prep 

Step 1 : Cleanse tone  and moisturise as always . ( I used Bioderma Crealine and for moisturiser I used Bioderma Hidro Riche which I am currently loving , its a great lightweight moisturiser for underneath foundation ) .

Step 2 : Apply some lip balm to you lips so they are nice and moisturised when your applying your red lipstick . (I  used Nuxe Reve de Miel  , I also reviewed this product : ) .


Step 3 : Prime your eyelid using concealer or a eyelid primer . Blend it out with your finger (I used Nyx Concealer wand )

Step 4 : Dust a cream eyeshadow all over your primer to set it , works best using a blending brush . (I used Urban Decay Foxy eyeshadow ).

Step 5 : In the crease of you eye apply a peachy pink eyeshadow (or blush , I used pinch o peach by mac which is discontinued but apparently elf blush in passion pink is a dupe , also a hell of a lot cheaper ) I applied it with a crease brush and blended it out with a fluffy blending brush . Do the same on the bottom lash line.

Step 6 : With a more dense eyeshadow brush apply a grey brown eyeshadow (I used an Inglot eyeshadow in the number ) on top of the peach colour you have just applied but make this more defined . Then buff out the eyeshadow with a clean blending brush, make sure to blend it too much , you still want to know its there .

Step 7 : Using a liquid or gel eyeliner draw a line on the top of you lashes then extend it out into a wing. Just below the wing leave a small gap and draw a line mimicking the wing . (I used Bourjois Mega Liner Ultra Black) .

Step 8 : Apply some white eyeliner on your waterline , inner tear duct and in-between the two wings . ( I used milk jumbo pencil by Nyx with a thin eyeliner brush ).

Step 9 : In zig zag motions apply your mascara . I find applying it in zig zag motions works best for giving your lashes length and volume ( I used maybelline great lash mascara ) .

Step 10 : Apply fake eyelashes . This step is optional but adds a bit more drama.( I used Red Cherry Wsp lashes ) .


Step 11: I brushed my eyebrows up and then applied Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow in blonde to my brows using a small angled brush . My eyebrows need plucked but i can't bring myself to the pain of plucking them so excuse the stray hairs haha .


Step 12 : I then apply some foundation to my face . The one I am using at the moment is Bourjois Healthy Mix serum  (If anyone would like a review on this foundation , just ask ) .

Step 13 : After applying my foundation I covered up my huge eye bags that felt like they were down to my ankles and any other blemishes using collection lasting perfection concealer  .

Step 14 : I used Make up Designory bronzer in endless summer to add some warmth to my cheeks .


Step 15 : Line your lips using a red lip pencil. (I used a red lip pencil , not to sure what brand its from ,the writing has rubbed off ) .

Step 16 :Using a small lip brush apply a red lipstick to your lips . (I used Sleek Make up Stiletto ) .

Hope you all enjoy and have a lovely Valentines Day, if anyone has any questions comment below.
