I’m not a huge believer in Valentine’s Day, but I’l take every opportunity I can to doll myself up! This year, for Valentines I am going for lunch with my best friend, and that’s about it. Still – I thought a very fast and easy makeup look would be perfect for getting into the spirit if you’re that way inclined! Enjoy xx

Although a lot of people go for a cute, shimmery look for Valentine’s, I thought ‘fuck it’ and decided to rock a red lip. I’d definitely go for a liquid lipstick, as they last through eating, drinking and kissing. I chose such a simple look because I really believe a classic winged liner and red lip with flawless skin looks good on everyone, is easy to achieve and is effortlessly in the spirit. I’d also go for a gel liner like I did for precision and staying power (this stuff won’t come off no matter what you do on V-Day night – wink wink).
Don’t forget to contour your nose a little and use some concealer and a flat brush to clean up your lip line and eyeliner.
Hope this gave you some inspiration!
