Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you are all having a lovely day whatever you’re up to. If you’re going out tonight and you’re looking for inspiration, I’ve created a retro glam look with a matte red lip so your lippy won’t budge while you’re eating…and kissing! If you want something a little different check out yesterday’s post for a pretty in pink look.

Base
Like in my previous look, I decided to go for a similar base, using myIllamasqua Hydra veilas a primer. Then I appliedYSL Touche Eclat Foundation in BR20using my Real Techniques buffing brush.Seventeen Phwoarr Paintis my favourite concealer of the moment so I used this to conceal blemishes and to my brighten under my eyes. I then dusted my faceIllamasqua Translucent Powderto give a soft focus look and I ran some of the HD Brows Vamp Palette through my brows.

Eyes
I primed my lids with someUrban Decay Primer Potion. Then I appliedBenefit cream shadow in RSVPusing my finger all over the lid. I created a feline cat flick using myMac 209 eyeliner brush andMac Fluidline in Blacktrackand added a coat ofBenefit They’re Real Mascara.

Blush
I swept some Nars Orgasm Blush over the apples of my cheeks.

Lips
I usedMac Ruby Woo to finish off the look. It’s a notoriously tricky lippy to use but looks fabulous on.
