Lazy Girl's Valentines Look...

Every blogger and their dog is uploading a makeup tutorial, and every one is absolutely beautiful, but for those like me who cannot fathom how to apply a pair of fake eyelashes and wants to stay as far away from the pink glitzy glitter as possible, then you'll be after something that's quick and easy to do...



Starting with the base, I used my ultimate faaaaaave foundation, L'Oreal True Match in the shade N1 Nude Ivory which is perfect for my super pale skin! I paired this with the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in Ivory underneath my eyes and on any blemishes and I think the two combined are so pretty! I'm really impressed with True Match, as it always applies so flawlessly and makes my skin look so even and perfect each time! 


I wanted to go for a subtle and pretty pink blush, so it was the perfect time to crack open my Makeup Revolution Ultra Sugar & Spice blush palette for the first time and I love it! I used a really pretty girly pink (they don't have numbers or names, but I used the middle one on the bottom row!) I love the way it applies to the skin, and it stays for hours which is fab considering what a bargain this was! As this is a matte blush, I used the top highlight shade just along the top of my cheekbones to give my face a bit of a rosy glow.


Next up is the eyes and I dug out my Urbay Decay Naked 2 palette, and popped the lovely rose gold shade 'Chopper' all over my lid. I wanted to go for a muted golden look with the eyes, and this shade was perfect! I used a smaller brush to apply this to my lower lash line too to open the eyes up a bit more. To finish, I popped the shimmery mauve-y shade 'YDK' in the crease and the corners, which is such a pretty colour!


I couldn't help but reach for my old Soap & Glory favourites for liner and the brows. For my brows I used my Archery brow pencil and tint, and just filled them in a little, using the thin nib of the tint in any dense patches. My favourite beauty product EVER had to make an appearance and I used the Supercat eyeliner pen just along my lashline to give my eyes a bit more of a wow-factor and make my lashes look even better.
For mascara, I used the sample that EVERRRRRYYYYONE has tried...Benefit's Roller Lash mascara that I got from this month's Elle Magazine (which I forgot to photograph but we all know what it looks like by now people!) I hate to say it but I love the mascara! My lashes are pretty long anyway but it adds so much volume and really fans them out! Not sure if I'll buy the full size version on release but I'm loving the sample!


Last but not least it was on to the lips, and if you've read my blog before you'll have seen this in my January Favourites post...the Bourjois Rouge Velvet is back! I chose to use the shade Grand Cru which is the most gorgeous deep red shade (the perfect Valentines shade, am I wrong?!) I only lightly applied it this time though, instead of building up the colour like I normally would but I think the outcome is so pretty!


I think this look definitely works for day or an evening and whether you're spending it on a hot date with your other half of maybe off to see the new 50 Shades with you girlfriends, this look could work for you! From start to finish it took me 10 minutes to complete, which is great for those of you with busy-life syndrome or those who just really can't be arsed!

What are your plans for Valentines Day? I'd love to know if you try out this look, and I hope you all have a lovely day however you spend it! Don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin as well if you'd like to keep up to date with my posts :)

Always, Alice x
