Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and love is in the air. I am a big fan of Valentine’s, personally, and am looking forward to celebrating the day with Ed, even if we are just staying in and having a meal and some wine this year. I have been playing around with some makeup that was sent to me from the lovely team at No7 and wanted to share this Valentine’s Day look with you today.
Starting with a base of foundation and pressed powder, I used the No7 Shimmer Palette in Caramel to define my cheekbones and bring a touch of subtle shine, adding a couple of small drops of the No7 Highlighting Drops in White Gold as well, blended into my cheekbones, under my eyebrows and down the middle of my nose as well.
Moving on to my eyes, I used the No7 The Full 360 mascara to define my blue eyes. The curved brush is fantastic at really opening up your lashes, and I have been converted – this is my new favourite mascara.
To finish the look, I used the No7 Stay Perfect lipstick in shade Brick Red to add a pop of colour. I am usually really cautious about wearing red lipstick as I find it can bleed really easily and make me look silly or drain my face colour, making it look too pale.
This lipstick is a game changer though and the shade really suits my skin tone. I have had lots of compliments wearing this lipstick, with people telling me it brightens up my face.
I have got to agree, I am a big fan and will definitely be looking at the other shades available as well as the lipstick feels soft and supple, without drying out my lips, and the colour doesn’t bleed or fade too quickly either.
