Happy Valentine's Day!
Trusty and true I decided this year to stick to the basics and create a neutral, nude & illuminated makeup look for Valentine's Day. Don't get me wrong, I do wear a statement lip on a daily basis - but today I decided to forego the usual for something daring (for me) GOING NUDE!
The illuminated base was created by mixing some of Illamasqua's Skin Base Mixer in white to the Estee Lauder Double-Wear Foundation. Set with Maybelline's 24hr powder creates a waterproof and matte look. A MUST for summer here in Australia - it is 41C in Adelaide today! Topped off with the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer as highlight on the cheeks, keeps the overall look luminous.
This is a favourite look of mine for almost any occasion where you are wanting a glowing yet nude neutral makeup look. Keep reading for a full list of products used to create this look.
