ORGANIZING ALL MY MAKEUP

What I love about these videos is that you can discover all the products people are using, compare to your own and get some ideas. My makeup collection is not big (tiny, if you compare on YouTube), but has everything I like and even some things I rarely use. I can definitely say I’ve been shopping smart (mostly) and I’m no longer hoarding makeup!

Come organize all my makeup with me and find out my favorite products!

GET READY WITH ME FOR VALENTINE’S DATE NIGHT

GET READY WITH ME FOR VALENTINE'S DATE NIGHT

I love Valentine’s day! Even after getting married it’s a great excuse to dress up and get ready for a date night, put that perfume I love and remember why we are together after all.

Valentine’s is that special occasion to celebrate love, be romantic, seductive, feel attractive and powerful, and I have selected a few of my favourites items from Debenhams so you can get ready with me. And, of course, have some great ideas for your own special night!

After showering and getting cosy in my robe, I’ll prep my skin for makeup. That step will normally include a moisturiser and primer, but Urban Decay stepped up the game with their new Naked Skin One and Done Tinted Moisturiser.  It blurs imperfections, hydrates the skin, contains peptides and vitamins and lasts for hours. I love how it has a light to buildable coverage, semi-matte finish and doesn’t make me oily throughout the day. My colour is light-medium.

Next I’ll do my eyes, and I’m kind of obsessed with palettes right now. I chose the Bobbi Brown ‘Sultry Nude’ Eye and Cheek Palette for this look as I can make nude smoky eyes to go with bold lips. I always start by smudging the medium colour on my crease, then build it up with the darkest shade. The lightest colour will go on the inner corners of the eyes and highlight the brow bones, and the golden glittery colour will go on the centre of my eyes.

Mascara is the final step to the eyes, and I am currently using the new Guerlain “La Petite Robe Noir”. The 4 in 1 formula offers length, volume, curl and definition, so you can tailor it the way you want. The packaging is just adorable and, if I can tell a secret, it smells divine! (No surprise as all Guerlain’s makeup smell like heaven!)

On to cheeks, Bobbi Brown Sultry Nude Eye and Cheek Palette comes again handy, with a silky powder blush in a flattering pink tone. Will this palette travel with me yes or for sure?!? Not to mention the golden luxurious packaging that will dress your table!

Not too surprising that I picked a red bold lip colour for my Valentine’s date night. This bright red is the Illamasqua Anti-Matter Lipstick,  which glides on super smooth, with a semi-matte finish and comfortable, continuous wear. The Midnight shade was the perfect addition to my other deep red hues.

Finally, I will set all my makeup with the Kat Von D “Lock It” Makeup Mist. It will make it all stay in place for up to 24 hours and it’s undetectable. I like how it gives the skin an instant boost with a refreshing cucumber scent, and I don’t have to worry about checking my face all the time.

My fragrance for the night is Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Debenhams exclusive, that comes with this amazing rose gold flower to compliment the bottle. It’s my newest scent obsession and the eau the parfum that was missing in my collection. It’s opulent with flower notes, but not too strong or too sweet either. I find it delicate and sexy at the same time, definitely not saving it for special occasions only!

GET READY WITH ME FOR VALENTINE'S DATE NIGHT 8

Before dressing up for Valentine’s night, I carefully chose this Reger by Janet Reger Dark Pink lace body. It’s elegant and effortlessly feminine, flattering with delicate lace finish. I’m also loving body lately, and how they can be worn under certain clothes for that peak through lingerie detail.
