For todays post I wanted to do a makeup look and as valentines day is literally round the corner it made sense to do a glam valentines day look! Obviously this is a look you can wear whenever you want, but as I’m wearing a burgundy top on valentines day this look is gonna be perfect for me!
I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette for this whole look, I love this palette!! You can read my whole review on it here!
Excuse the above picture, my camera was charging and I need to take step by step photos so these were took on my iPhone, no amount of editing can hide how washed out these images are from the flash!!
To start, I primed my eyelids first using the Nivea men post shave balm, I then prepped them using my MAC pro longwear concealer in the shade NC15 setting that with the shade ‘Tempera’ from the palette, placing this all over the eyelid!
I then used the shade ‘Buon Fresco’ in my crease and blended it right out to my outer V.
I then went in with the shade ‘Love Letter’ also running this through the crease as well as defining my outer V with it and running it under my lower lash line! I took this through my crease as I wanted it to look like a half smokey eye / half cut crease look for extra glam!
I then went back with ‘Tempera’ using it to blend over the harsh edges and patting it back onto my eyelid to prep for the next shadow!
I then finished the look by covering the inner part of my eyelid in the shade ‘Vermeer’ and used ‘Buon Fresco’ to blend it into ‘Love Letter’ so that there were no harsh lines!
I also ran the shade ‘Vermeer’ along the inner corner of my lower lash line!
I was also lucky enough to be contacted by the lovely Sylvie from Crazy Lenses to review some coloured contacts! I chose to receive ‘Hazel 3 Tone’ and ‘Sapphire Blue 2 Tone’ Contacts!
I am wearing the Hazel ones in the pictures above! how natural do they look?!
The contacts are brilliant, they’re easy to put in and just as easy to take out! They also don’t irritate your eyes at all, which is what I was worried about! You can’t even feel them on your eyes after you put them in and obviously they don’t affect your vision at all!

So I hope you enjoyed this post!!
