Valentine's Day Makeup

12.2.14

To all of you girls that are in love and planning to go out with your boy, man, fella, etc. on 14 February, this post is for you. Some of us ("me") aren't lucky enough to be in love and will be going out to lunch with their mum and sister. But for those lovesick ladies out there, I have created this eye look especially for you.

This is a pretty neutral look with a subtle cut crease and pop of colour with the copper/rose gold that will suit blue, brown and green eyes. It is more suited to day time but can easily be turned into a night time look - just add some false lashes, make the black liner a little thicker, and build up the colour in the crease.
