Valentine's Day Makeup Picks NARS, MAC, Soap & Glory, Charlotte Tilbury, Too Faced, Dior, Maybelline, Essie, Nails Inc
Valentine's Day is fastly approaching and it's time to think about your makeup look! Wether you're going on a romantic date night or meeting up with your friends, whatever you're doing I've got your Valentine's Day makeup sorted! To me Valentine's Day is all about everything pink, girly and pretty and I like to represent this in my makeup. I've done a quick round up of my favourite Valentine's Day makeup picks.

Valentine's Day Makeup Picks MAC Dollymix Blush, NARS Orgasm Blush and MAC Soft & Gentle Highlighter
The Cheeks
A rosy shimmering pink cheek is the perfect compliment to your romantic Valentine's Day look. If you can't have a pretty pink cheek on Valentine's, when can you? My go to Valentine's blush is of course NARS Orgasm. This is a perfect blend of pinky peach goodness with a golden shimmer to add a subtle romantic glow. If you're after that real rosy cheek, then my pick would be MAC's Dollymix, this is a pure candy pink with a sheer shimmer. If you don't go to overboard,  Dollymix will give your cheeks a natural pink flush - oh so romantic! To compliment my blush I always like to use a good highlighter and to me Valentine's Day calls for a gorgeous shimmering glow! To bring out my inner golden goddess this Valentine's Day, I'm going to be using MAC's Soft & Gentle. This gives your cheeks a beautiful peachy golden glow that looks oh so natural. Soft & Gentle will leave you looking radiant and luminous, it's the perfect compliment to your Valentine's look.

Valentine's Day Makeup Picks Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, MAC Burgundy Times Nine Eye Shadow, Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner.
The Eyes
Now they say our eyes are the windows to our soul and if you're going to be having a romantic evening of staring into one another eyes, then you need the perfect picks to compliment your eye look! I can't get enough of my MAC Burgundy Times Nine palette recently. I'm a sucker for a shimmering bronze pink eye and this just has it all! This is going to be perfect for Valentines day, my go to shades are Honey Lust, Antiqued and Star Violet to add a bit of shimmer and Poppy Seed, Quarry and Haux to add a subtle mauve base. You can see a more in depth review of all the shades here beauties. Now I love a good cat eye and my go to liquid eyeliner is the Soap & Glory Supercat. This is the perfect tool to give you a sexy winged liner look. Its felt marker tip makes it so effortless to apply, you'll have the perfect cat eye in no time. This liner is jet black for a dramatic bold statement that will stay put for hours on your steamy Valentine's night! Most importantly for my Valentine's eye look, I want long fluttering eyelashes! My go to mascara has got to be the Too Faced Better Than Sex. The hourglass full brush grabs on to every last lash leaving no strays behind! This gives me bold black long lashes, I couldn't be without it. If you're after perfectly curled and luscious lashes this Valentine's day, then you need to pick up Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, it will perfect any eye look!

Valentine's Day Makeup Picks Dior Lip Addict Lip Glow Balm, Maybelline Babylips Colour Balm Crayon and Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips
The Lips
Now your lip choice could arguably be the most important decision of your Valentine's makeup look. Wether you're going natural and kissable or bold and biteable, I've got just the picks for you! Sometimes a natural, angelic lip is the perfect compliment to your look. If you want a 'your lips but better' look, then the Dior Addict Lip Glow is the perfect pick. This balm will leave your lips looking so natural and gorgeous. Lip Glow enhances your lips and brings out their natural and beautiful colour. Your lips will just look so moisturised and kissable! If you want to add a bit more colour to your lips this Valentine's Day, I may have just the thing for you. One of my newest obsessions has been the Maybelline Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon in Creamy Caramel. This is so effortless to use, just like a lip balm it's so creamy and moisturising, but with this you get an added burst of colour too - how perfect! Creamy Caramel is a perfect natural peachy pink, it's so much more wearable than a lipstick. You won't have to worry about getting lipstick on your teeth this Valentine's Day! Now if you're after a real statement look this V-day, Charlotte Tilbury's Hot Lips in Electric Poppy is the way to go! If you'd like to see this beauty in action then pop over to my full review. Electric Poppy is a cerise cherry shade that will be sure to help you stand out from the crowd. The colour itself is so enticing and the matte revolution formula just tops it off. Electric Poppy was inspired by Poppy Delevingne, it's electric, bold and really compliments the English rose completion. Electric Poppy will have your date just eager to have a go on those beautiful, bold kissable lips!

Valentine's Day Makeup Picks Essie Gel Couture and Nails Inc Alexa Heart
The Nails
To top of your Valentine's Look, a themed nail is always the way to go! Essie's Gel Couture in The it-Factor is the perfect bright fuchsia pink that will compliment your Valentine's Look. It's bright and bold with a sophisticated feel. The gel couture formula is super shiny for the perfect polished nails - you'll look like you've just come out of the nail salon! If you're feeling a bit more fun and flirty a V-Day top coat is always a great choice. Nails Inc Alexa Hearts is the perfect added extra to your Valentine's nails. Wether you top these gorgeous little red love hearts on a pale pink or a glitter - your  nails will look so pretty and cute this Valentine's Day!
