Two makeup looks for Valentine’s Day

I’ve been so excited to share this Valentine’s makeup post with you! I got together with celebrity makeup artist, Vivi’s Makeup, to create two very different and equally as incredible looks for your Valentine’s Day.

Whether you plan to spend the night with your date or with friends (like me!), then hopefully one of these two looks will inspire you.

For each look, I’ve listed all the products used, but if you have any questions, then leave me a comment below.

Look 1: the Hopeless Romantic

The dress I am wearing, which you can just about see in the image at the top of the page, is from ASOS! Don’t forget, there’s loads more Valentine’s outfit inspiration over on my latest fashion post.

Look 2: the Valentine’s Vixen

Can you believe that this look is the same as the previous one, but with a lip? It’s amazing how a strong lip colour can completely transform your whole face. I personally love my lips over-lined, but it’s all down to personal opinion.

So there are the two different looks, what do you think? Will you rock either of these on Valentine’s Day?

I’d love to know which you prefer, and also if you enjoyed this post as we might start doing more looks for you if so.

Have an amazing day whatever you end up doing! And don’t forget to check out my Valentine’s gift guide and 5 ways to wear outfit posts if you haven’t already.

For someone who claims not to love Valentine’s Day, I’ve really gone in on the posts, haha!

I’ve got to give a massive shoutout to Oscar May for photographing and editing me so well too! He shoots all my blog content, and he’s the best of the best.

Speak to you soon, x

    1. Aww, thank you. That’s so nice to hear especially as I was worried it might be a bit too light – I’m so used to things on my lips!
