Valentines Day Look: Radiant Red

Hey Everyone,

So I have a simple look for you guys today. It is really easy to do and hopefully will help those looking for some inspiration for their Valentines Day look. I actually wore this look to a recent concert (Muse) I went to, and I thought it would make a great look for valentines day. It is different then the one I did last year which was more of a natural blushing look.  I think this is a radiant, easy look which can be worn on Valentines Day, either with your significant other or while eating a tub of ice cream and watching the latest episode of Suits.

On a side note... I have been really into red lipstick again so coincidentally I am wearing the same lipstick I am in my last post. Also, apologies for the hair,  I was in a rush and had just washed it and I did not realize it was all over my face.

 So now for the make up:

On the Face:
Foundation: Nars Sheer Glow in Santa Fe
Concealor: Sephora Perfecting Cover Concealer
Blush: Nars Blush in Madly on the backs of my cheeks and Nars Orgasm on the apples
Bronzer: Benefit Bronzer in Hoola

On the Eyes:
Eyeshadow 1: Lid Shade from the Maybelline Chai Latte Quad all over the lid
Eyeshadow 2: Eyebrow shade from the Maybelline Chai Latte Quad on the inner 1/4 of my lid blended in with the lid shade
Eyeliner 1: Essence eye liner pen in Black on the outer half of my eye lid
Eyeliner 2: Sephora Jumbo Liner 12hr Wear Waterproof eyeliner in 04 Taupe on the bottom lashline Mascara: Covergirl Lash Blast Volume

Lipstick: Revlon Matte Lipstick in 06 Really Red

Hope everyone has a wonderful week and a special Valentines Day!

Beauty Haul: Mac, Revlon and Maybelline

 Hey Everyone,

So I have a small beauty haul even though I have been trying to not spend money. It is just waay to difficult with all of the sales that have been going on. Anyways, I headed over to mac and purchased the coveted satin taupe. I figured it was about time considering all the hype that surrounds this particular shade.  (swatch down below)

While I was there I also picked up Brick-Ola which comes in the creme amplified formula so it goes on opaque right away. Although, I really do love the shade it wouldn't be a favorite mine as I find it to be a bit to warming with my skin tone.

I shamelessly also picked up two other lipsticks. Shoppers Drug Mart was recently having a sale on lip butters so I picked up the shades Candy Apple and Raspberry Pie. I love this particular formula and have used all the other ones I own to their very end.  Raspberry Pie is a bright pink fuchsia which will be great for the spring and Candy Apple is a more of an orange toned red with no shimmer. For those wondering, the Revlon lip butter in Cherry Tart is more blue tones and has shimmer.

The last think I got is two new glitter polishes from Maybelline in Gold's Night Out and Ruby Rhinestones. In all honesty I haven't been to impressed with the Maybelline color show formula. I have found the formula for the ones I have tried to be very thin and sheer. However, I couldn't help it and had to pick up the these two beauties. I do think they are good considering there price point ($2.97) and the formula for these is pretty good compared to the other I have tried, though they could be a bit more glossier.

That is all for my little haul. Hope you all have a great week up ahead and I will do my best to post more often.

Thanks for reading,
