New Make-up & Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!!!!!!

I had a great day!!!!
I had my first official day back at work after going from job to job for like 2 months and it went very well. To make my day even better (since it is Valentine's day) my boyfriend cooked me the best dinner ever and we had a tad too much to drink. What else could I have asked for...nothing.

Here is my new make-up look for you all to try and enjoy!!!!

Purple smokey eye







Step 1:
The first thing I like to do is put on concealer. When I use concealer I usually put it all over my face to give myself a clean and even palette to work with. I mainly concentrate on under the eyes, my chin, under my nose, as well as on my nose and on my eyelids. *I use maybelline pure make-up it's a water based concealer (it's kind of old I'm not sure if it's still in stores but I got mine at Shoppers Drug Mart)

Step 2:
The next thing I do is put on my foundation and once again I put this all overmy face not really focusing on any spots in particular *I use and have been using for the past 6 years because I love it so much is L'OREAL True Match Natural Gentle Mineral. I love this foundation because it gives the best coverage without looking like it's caked on and it's also really light.

Step 3:
The next step I take when doing my make-up is adding bronzer. I use Rimmel sunshimmer 3 in 1 shimmering bronzer. I first apply bonzer to my cheek bones and for this step I mix the two darker colours of the bronzer and then blend after application. I also put bronzer (the lightest and middle colour) on my jaw line, across my chin, on the contours of my nose, as well as on my forehead and once again blend. For this step I use a flat ended contouring brush.

Step 4:
Add blush on top of cheek bones (depending on the look I'm going for I may skip this step sometimes). To further enhance the cheek bones I sometimes like to add blush and the blush I use is Maybelline dream mousse blush colour 40 soft plum. For this step use a regular blush brush.

Step 5:
Eye shadow. I first use a bright purple on my eyelids. Then I add a darker shimmering purple(you can also use a grey shimmering shadow) to the outside corner of my eyelid and brush it over the top of my eyelid with a smudge brush(the smudge brush is your best-friend when it comes to smokey eyes)

Step 6:
Eyeliner. I use NYX felt tip liner on my top eyelid as well as on the outside edge of my lower eyelashes. For my inner eyelid I use a black kohl eyeliner.

Step 7:
Mascara. My fav mascaras of the moment are Sephora brand (with a curl ended brush) as well as Smashbox Hyperlash. The Sephora mascara is great for definition and curl while the Smashbox mascara is really good for lash separation( I usually brush the mascara brush bush off with tissue first to avoid clumping on the lashes).

Step 7: Add white shadow under the eyebrow and above the shadow to highlight brow bone. I also put white shadow on the inner corners of my eye as well as the outside. This step helps to open up and enhance your eyes.

Step 8:
Add brow powder/shadow/pencil over the eyebrow. This step can be left out if you have darker eyebrows but because mine are so light I have to do this step in order to make them fully visible at all angles (ha...ha..ha...)

Step 9:
Lip colour. For my lips I always like to star off with blistex because it helps to soften the lips without adding any colour. Now with this look I used a pale pink gloss that I got a Jacob to finish to my look but you can use any brand just find hte colour that you like and that works with your skintone.

Now you are all done!!!!
I hope you liked my little somewhat tutorial and you all try this at home!!!!!!!!

I will not be making videos for my tutorials but for the next make-up tutorial I do I will show step by step pictures to make it easier to follow!!!!

Happy Valentines Day to you all and I hope you had a good one!!!!!!
