Pink Flamingo Makeup Look or Valentines if you wish ;)

Hi lovers!
Y'all know what today is, the (dreaded to some) Valentines day!! (at least it is where I am ;))

In case you haven't noticed I've been trying to name my more "exciting" makeup looks.... even if they do come out tacky-sounding! When I did this last week it wasn't meant to be for anything special but as I was writing this post I thought.... well what better time to post it! I was planning to do a verrry similar look for v-day anyway (I have a day and night version planned :P)

This was playing around with my La Splash Glitter (Haul post coming up, hopefully when I receive my next beauty order! Hurry up yo!!) & my Inglot eyeshadows again, finding out that I can make pretty combos using a brighter lid colour & browns throughout the crease. These glitters can be used sort of in daytime looks, depending on what you call daytime (can be a bit more dramatic for me :P) and adding just a touch makes for a pretty sparkly look :D

Face: The usual foundation combo , Nars Laguna Bronzer, MAC Lightscapade
Nyx Cream Blush in Natural, Jordana 'A Touch Of Pink'
Eyes: MAC 'Painterly' Paintpot, Nyx Base 'White', Inglot 'AMC Shine 39', 'DS 460', 'p 420', 'P 393', 'DS 495'. Fyrinnae 'Pixie Epoxy', La Splash glitter in Miami Beach. Bourjois Clubbing eyeliner, Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner, NP Set liquid liner. Essence I <3 Extreme volume mascara, Max Factor False Lash Effect.
Lips: Nyx Black Label Lipstick 'Nude' + Nyx lipgloss 'Smokey Look'.
 I started with my primer & a white sticky base & applied the glittery purple-pink to my lid & outer lower lashline. Then with a crease brush I applied a mid toned glittery brown (the glitter only shows up if I pack it right on) right into the crease & blended with a fluffy crease brush out with a taupe-grey colour. I applied a touch of a darker glittery brown into the outer v for more definition. Take your sticky base & pat it into the middle of the eyelid & add a hot pink glitter. Highlight in the inner corners & brow bone if you wish with a pencil brush & a shimmery light peachy colour, finish with eyeliner & a black pencil liner on the waterline blended into the pink on the lower lashline or apply a nude or white pencil, add mascara and you're good!

Thanks so much of looking, I hope you all have a good valentines day whether you're spending it with your other half or having a night out with the girls! Personally I don't make a big fuss out of this day I just like to go out to dinner with my man :)

Take care xxx mwa

Mascara update
I opened One by One as everyone knows the falsies is good but not much about this..... plus I have enough voluminous ones open atm :D I have only used it once so far and it seems to be ok but I'm sure it will grow on me, I will let you all know how I really feel once I've used it a bit more.



  1. You look stunning. Your face looks very flawless x

  2. Wow that cheek is amazing on you, so gorgeous!

  3. Very pretty and Valentine's appropriate look! Love that crease colour and the lips! :)

  4. Soooo pretty! Huge fan of the pink pop, eyeliner, shimmery and highlighting! I think pink works so well on the lids, brightening and it goes so well on you complexion, that nude lip is awesome on you. Hope you had a great day!

    1. Thank you so much doll! I love this light pink for that reason, especially the glitter! And thanks, I think the lipgloss on top of the nude lipstick works better for me!

  5. This is very pretty on you! I always try to name my looks too but I am so not creative with words... I wish I had access to LA Splash glitters where I live!

    1. Thanks, girl! Ohh I def. don't have it where I live, I will post about it all in an upcoming haul post!
