Firstly, I filled in my brows – for some reason I can’t even begin the rest of my make-up without filling in my brows. Soap and Glory Archery is my current weapon of choice – I used to use both the crayon and felt-tip type end but have just been sticking to the crayon end of late.
Primer. The UD Naked shadows are amazing, no doubt about it – but they become ten times better when used with a primer. The Naked 3 came with four week-long samples of the primer potion so I’ve been using these a lot. The primer used in this look is just the original one, applied with the flat shader end of the brush the palette comes with.
Next, I used the fluffy end of the brush to pat Nooner onto most of my lid.
I then blended Liar over the top of Nooner, up to the crease in a rounded shape using my Real Techniques Base Shadow brush. I love the shape of the brush as it holds a lot of shadow and doesn’t create too much fallout.
I then blended Factory into the crease, and into a light v shape on the outer corner of my eye. This shade is really great as it helps add depth.
I then added some definition with Blackheart, which is a great accent colour. It blends so well and adds a lot of soft definition. I applied this using the Real Techniques Accent Brush which is the perfect shape and size.
To add definition to the cheekbones I used MAC’s shadow in Wedge, which although an eye shadow, works well as a contour as it has a more subtle tone. I used the Real Technqiues Contour Brush for this (because it’s amazing), in the shape of a three to add shadow to my temples, cheekbones and jawline.
Here’s the finished look:
What kind of look do you go for on Valentines Day? Are you doing anything for Valentines – single or attached?!
