Valentine’s Makeup FOTD

Anyone else celebrate Valentine’s Day way after its gone? 🙂

Prep

I sprayed Avene Eau Thermale Spring water all over clean face and immediately applied Clarins HydraQuench Intensive Bi-Phase Serum.
Lierac’s hydra-chrono intense rehydrating balm on top. Seriously good stuff for dehydrated skin.

Base

A small amount of Smashbox photo finish luminizing primer all over face, mainly on cheeks and center of face though. I then applied a few drops of Benefit’s Moon Beam highlighter on cheekbones, brow bones, nose and cupid’s bow. I conceal before foundation if I am using a mineral foundation sometimes. I used L’Oreal’s visible lift cream concealer in Medium under eyes and around my nose.

Foundation

Bareminerals original foundation in medium beige, two layers with kabuki brush, then touched up around eyes and nose with concealer brush.
A mixture of Lancome bronzer (a mid tone) and The Body shop’s blush in a deep mauvy pink along back of cheeks and sides of face.
Next, Bareminerals clear radiance on highlighted areas and finished off with Bareminerals giddy pink blusher.

Eyes

Smashbox highlight and contour palette, contour color in brows and softly in crease. With a wet angled brush along outer corner of eyes to create soft flick, highlight color along lids and brow bones.

Benefit they’re real mascara, two coats and finally NYX lip gloss in beige.

10 minute chic makeup for a lovely dinner at Araxi in Whistler ❤️

Apologies for poor lighting and my useless iPhone camera quality 🙂
