Peachy Valentine’s Day Makeup

Hey babe, grab a glass of wine and sit back and relax while we take you through our V-Day makeup look for 2017 featuring the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow palette.

In all honesty, we will both be sitting on the couch with our mum and dog and wearing comfy pjs but hey… we think this makeup would work for any date night or special occasion.

The Base:


For this look we wanted to stick to products we know and love and create a flawless, fresh base. To prime N’s skin we used the Nars Radiance Primer (which we believe has been repackaged… does anyone know?) which is a beautiful glowy primer with some SPF to help if you are on a daytime date. To even out the complexion we used N’s holy grail drugstore foundation, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation with round top buffing brush. For undereye concealer we used the Bare Minerals BareSkin complete cover concealer with a beauty sponge and set that and N’s T-Zone with a small eyeshadow brush and the E.L.F Undereye Setting Powder (seriously the best glowy powder!).

The Brows:

To lightly fill in N’s brows we used the MAC Eyebrows pencil in the shade Lingering and set them with our favourite brow gel of the moment, the Rimmel Clear Brow Gel.

The Face:


To Contour a little bit we used a new(ish) favourite of ours, The Balm Bahama Mama bronzer on a tapered face brush under N’s cheek bones and along the sides of her nose. Then to warm up her skin and give it an even glowier look we used our favourite Too Faced Sweet Tea bronzer (available in Mecca stores) around the perimeters of her face and through her cheeks and topped that with Tarte Blush in the shade True Love (how fitting) on the apples of her cheeks for the ultimate girly blush. For a peachy highlight to compliment the upcoming eye look we used the peach shade from the Sleek Solstice palette. And voila! Your complexion is super girly and glowy!

The Eyes:

To prime N’s eyes we used the MAC Prep and Prime 24HR Extend Eye Base from lash line to brow bone and set it with the peaches & cream shade from the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. We ran Georgia through and just above the crease  to create a nice transition and then put Candied Peach directly through the crease and under the lower lashes. Then we used Just Peachy quite liberally through the entire lid and in to the outer-v of the eye. To top it all off we used the shade Luscious on the inner third of the of the upper and lower lid. We decided to not go too dark or anything with this look as we wanted to keep it light and feminine.

For mascara we used one we got in our Mecca Beauty Loop Level 3 box, Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. This is such an amazing mascara! Can’t wait to keep trying this out!

Finally, we used the same peachy shade from the Sleek Solstice palette to highlight the inner corners of N’s eyes and her brow bone.

The Lips:


Chi Chi has some of the most creamy, pigmented liners that we have ever come across, and they’re only $9.95!! We used the shade Shy Girl to outline and fill in N’s lips. Because they are so creamy and long lasting we decided to just top them off with the Rimmel Oh My Gloss in Crystal Clear and call it a day. We think they turned out absolutely stunning, so lushes and will last through all your nights activities ;).

Whatever you’re doing this Valentine’s Day enjoy, look after yourself, stay Happy and remember how fantastic you are!
