Quick & Easy Valentine’s Makeup Look

Dudes, before you overlook this post thinking to yourself, “Corinne, I really don’t need to watch another video with far too many steps to be practical, with far too many products for anyone to necessarily own”, this post is different.

Yes it’s a Valentine’s Day inspired post, but it actually is really quick, easy, and there’s no red lip in sight.backgrounderI know most Valentine’s Day makeup tutorials talk about different shades of red to perfectly suit every skin colour, but the truth is that some people just don’t want to wear a red lipstick, so this look is a simple but romantic ‘loved-up’ look.All I’ve used to create this look is 6 products (and one tool, but I’m not counting that) and it takes roughly 10 minutes to be fully done.IMG_1255

Start out by prepping your skin with moisturiser, then complete your usual foundation regime. I’ve then lightly contoured with the Estée Lauder “All Over Face Compact” and highlighted with Makeup Revolution’s “Blush” Palette.

Then fill in your eyebrows and apply ‘Mink’ from Soap & Glory’s “The Perfect 10” palette all over your eyelid, then apply a little bit of ‘Nudecomer’ to define the crease of your eye, and finally a little bit of ‘Moon Mist’ to the very inner corners of your eyes.

Once you’ve finished your eyeshadow, draw a thin cat eye with eyeliner, and apply some glue to some light and fluttery lashes. I am in love with this set from Fleur De Force by Eyelure because they are actually only 3/4 of the usual size of eyelashes, so they focus on the outside of your eyes, making your eyes look super big, and your lashes natural and fluttery!

Once the glue has almost dried and become tacky, curl your lashes, and then apply the falsies, and fill in any gaps with your eyeliner. The final step is to apply Bourjois’ “Rouge Edition Velvet” in the colour ‘Nude-ist’.


And you’re done! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and like this look, I really wanted to give you a different option to a bold red lip for Valentine’s. Let me know if you’re going to be wearing a similar look for Valentine’s Day!

What are you getting up to this Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day: Lush “Lot’s Of Love” Gift Set

It’s Valentine’s Day in 4 days now, so today I’m showing you guys one of the best Valentine’s Day ultimate hacks; A Lush gift set! It’s perfect if your other half is obsessed with Lush, and it’s perfect if you really don’t know what to get them!IMG_1038In the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set, you get 6 of some of the cutest love-themed products that Lush have to offer, and I’m going to talk you through them all, alongside one bonus product!IMG_1053

Tisty Tosty | This bath bomb is based on a medieval love potion. It contains seven real rosebuds and has a gorgeous scent of geranium, jasmine and rose, said to be toning and balancing, and floral and seductive. It also makes for a really pretty and relaxing bath.

Oral Pleasure | Now this product is not included in the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set, but fortunately this was gifted to me, and I had never heard of it before so I thought I’d share it with you guys! In this pot you have ‘toothy tabs’, which can be used as a toothpaste substitute. I know it seems confusing, but when used properly it is like their shampoo bars, that foams up incredibly. All you have to do is chew this tablet and then start brushing your teeth! It creates a white foam, so don’t let the colour (or name!) put you off!IMG_1055Rose Jam | One of my favourite products from Lush, a bubbleroon! This products smells so relaxing, and the fact that it also contains rose oil means that it’s balancing, softening and moisturising for the skin. I also really love that it can be used more than once as you can break it in half. That’s twice the amount of relaxation, in one product!

A French Kiss | I had always been drawn to this bubble bar every time I’ve been in Lush, but I’ve never actually picked it up, so I was so excited when I saw that it was included in this gift set! It smells so lovely, and I really love the way Lush describes it, “Crumble under running water for a paradisaical bath full of the lavender and rosemary scents of Southern France.” Definitely one of the most romantic products, perfect for this time of year!IMG_1058Lover Lamp | Do you want a romantic bath that smells like chocolate orange, moisturises your skin with the most delicate cocoa butter, and leaves tiny red hearts floating a top a billion bubbles? Look no further; this is the bath bomb for you. It’s perfect for a girly night in, or first thing in the morning to keep your skin super soft and smelling gorgeous all day long.

Unicorn Horn | I don’t really need to go in to much detail with this product do I? We’ve all seen it, heard of it or tried it. This bath bomb has been proven to increase serotonin levels (they make you feel happy and cheery!), and it’s just super cute. And if Lush opens their description for this product with “Unicorns are probably real. But, even if they’re not (don’t worry they definitely are) you won’t mind!” you know this bubble bar is a must buy.

Sex Bomb | This bath bomb is geared towards soothing your worries, and relieving anxiety. It’s main ingredient is Jasmine, which obviously is super relaxing, but it also said to be an ancient aphrodisiac, so again, it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!


That’s it for the “Lot’s Of Love” gift set from Lush, perfect for if you still haven’t quite figured out what you want to give to that special someone this Sunday!

Please share this post if you enjoyed it, and help out your friends who might not know what to get for Valentine’s yet!
