Soft Pink Glam Makeup

With Valentines just around the corner, now is the perfect time to think about date night. Once you have children, those days of impulsive date nights that are stretch late into the wee hours of the next morning are long gone. Our date nights normally consist of ordering a takeaway, or eating our way through a box of chocolates whilst binging on Netflix. However this year we have decided to step it up a notch and actually go on a date, as parents these are very rare

So with the fact there is a date on the cards, trying to figure out the perfect hairstyle and makeup is essential. On on hand, I don't want to look like I have spent hours on end prepping every curl, every wave to perfection. But on the other hand I don't want to look like I have just rolled out of bed looking like I've not seen a brush or set of tweezers in years. So I thought that today I would share an easy Valentine's makeup look with you. Whatever your usual style, whether you want to shake it up completely, or wish to remain true to your roots, a simple and easy look for Valentine's that's created in next to no time means you can spend more time ordering the Strawberry Daiquiris. Am I right?

The Base.

The Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base is a great place to start a primer and moisturiser all rolled into one. A rich and creamy formula that never leaves my skin feeling greasy once applied. It is the perfect way to prep my skin for flawless makeup. For a good coverage Revlon Colorstay Foundation is a great dupe for Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation, for less than half the price. Revlon Colorstay has been designed for us combination and oily girls, finally! It's always so hard to get a foundation that is a great all rounder that has lasting power. To brighten my eyes and hides those tired mama dark circles I like to use Veil Illuminating Complexion Fix for illuminating and soothing my circles but it also hydrates and leaves my skin feeling brighter. Then I like to finish my base with a setting powder BareSkin Perfection Veil Powder in light for my pale complexion which is so easy to apply and give me a gorgeous matte finish. 

Define with Colour. 

Defining with colour is always my favourite part with my makeup routine as it can enhance my complexion and skin tone. One of my favourite ways is with a contour palette. Now I am no contour queen by any means but I love how a contoured face can define your best features, creating the appearance of high cheekbones and a slimmer nose and chin. This Revolution Ultra Sculpt & Contour Kit in Ultra Fair is a great little trio for a contour or a little bronze. For those with a pale complexion the bronzer in this set is light enough and super pigmented adding warmth to my face. The blush in this set is great for everyday wear but seeing as it's a special occasion I cannot simply go out without my favourite blush. The limited edition of this Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo Baked Blush in Rose Pink. is a gorgeous pigmented pink and perfect for my skin tone. For date night we need to add more glow and I love the Memi Powder Radiance Highlighter in Lemon Drops because the glow is insane with iridescent pearl pigments and light reflecting particles leaving an instant luminous glow with a warm tone. Then I like to gently swipe this Laura Gellar Illumitating Stick in Ballerina on top on my cheeks for an enhanced glow, it's very creamy and goes on nicely without being too thick. Just a little goes a long way.

Soft and Pretty Eyes

In the mood for a soft and pretty beauty look? Look no further than pink eye makeup. Pink eyeshadow will provide a playful yet sophisticated vibe that won’t go unnoticed. Revolution Reloaded Fundamental Palette. 15 shade eye shadow palettes that are bound to pack a punch at an affordable price. Warm burnt shades for lovers of orange, pinks and neutrals, in a variety of matte and shimmer shades. I cannot believe the price of this palette and the fact that you can create so many different looks all from one palette really amazes me. And if you want to pull out all the stops adding this effortless crème eyeshadow with Show Glow Glitter Fix Stick in Flickering Pink which is absolutely gorgeous. There is nothing more feminine than a stunning cat eye! This look works to enhance the shape of your gorgeous peepers while serving up some serious sass for an unforgettable look my favourite is Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner it’s smudge free and the skinny felt tip end helps make my winged eyeliner work like a dream. One of the easiest ways to upgrade your makeup is to focus on your lashes and for voluminous lashes to add an extra glam Maybelline Lash Sensational can do wonders for lashes.

Beautiful Brows.

I really love using Soap & Glory Archery™ Brow Tint and Precision Pencil in Brownie Points to get precise brows as you can use the pen to outline and the pencil to fill in. This colour is perfect colour for me. Personally I really love the pen side as it delivered natural brows in secondsI am able to fill in my sparse eyebrows and build them up gradually so they appear natural. I love using L'Oréal Paris Brow Artist Genius Kit as it has a tinted wax, setting powder, a mini pair of tweezers and a double ended brush.

Kissable Lips

A lipstick is an essential for date night, most stick with traditional with a red lippy as the rich hues give your pout a sultry and sexy look. But when it comes to lips I prefer a subtle shade like this Ted Baker Lipstick in Nude or Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Girlfriend. The lightweight formula glides on a thin coat of color that intensifies as it sets to a matte, transfer-free finish with amazing staying power. This shade 'Girlfriend' is the prettiest nude I've yet to find and it doesn't wash me out at all, so for all you ladies looking for that perfect, subtle nude shade, go and try it out.

What do you think of my soft and pretty look for date night? Have you tried any of the products that I've included in the look?


  1. I'm terrible for wearing dark eye shadows. I need to try something lighter.

  2. I have to say I don’t really know how to contour. It’s probably about time I learnt!

  3. This to try a new make up look! Valentines is a perfect time for this!

  4. I love pink and gold, think it works brilliant together and very pretty
