Valentines Eye Makeup...

It might be a bit too soon to start worrying about Valentine's day, but if you want to look your best, it takes a little practise! So I thought, why not start now, and by then perfect the look?!

I found a very gorgeous eye shadow look on the Internet and immediately saved it onto my computer. I did this months ago and only just have enough confidence to try it! All the photos are only of my eye look though, It was very late at night when I did it and I didn't do a whole look! But will definitely do it soon!

This was my final look and I love it! I would have applied false lashes but lost my tweezers and seriously, I can't apply them without them! It's a very easy look to achieve! All you need is three eye shadows and a sprinkle of glitter!
I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk and a black kohl eyeliner as a base, then set the jumbo pencil with a white eyeshadow (my favourite from ELF, SO pigmented!) then blended and contoured with a matte black (from NYX) and a nude/light brown to soften the black below my brow bone. I added a little liquid eyeliner to my inner tear duct to create a cat eye and a few coats of MAC's zoom lash black last mascara.
Finally I added a little glitter to the centre of my eyeliner. I recommend NYX's glitter pots.

This was the look I was going for! How do you think I've done?

If I added false lashes I'm sure I never would have wanted to take it off! Will definitely be wearing it the next time I go out! It's very simple to do and looks fantastic! Very eye catching and perfect for Valentine's, don't you think?
Pair with some dramatic contouring and soft nude lips.

Pretty Please let me know what you guys think! Really do love hearing from you :)

Love & Peace x


  1. I much prefer your version! I love the sparkle you've added as well, reminds me of those galaxy inspired eyes. :)

  2. Oh. Em. Gee. This is AMAZING. I love it. Perfect lines and shading. I want to try this but my little eyes can't handle this much dark eyeshadow. Maybe I'll try it anyway when I'm alone and I can play. Love this look! So glad you shared!
