As much as I love makeup, I realised that I only usually feature it in reviews or hauls. So, I thought I'd actually create a look and show you what I came up with. And since it's Valentine's Day next week, what better time to paint my face.
Now, I'm not a professional makeup artist, so there's no extreme talent, but I'm quite happy with the soft, feminine look I produced. I went with all pink tones as it's cute and flirty, and added a pair of wispy falsies to amp up the sexy a bit. I also decided to give you two lip options - I chose liquid lipsticks as they have amazing staying power and they won't transfer if you go in for a smooch.

I love both lip colours but I think the red is much more Valentine's Day date appropriate. What's your preference? Also, do you like this kind of post?
