Valentine's Date Night Beauty Essentials

It's Valentine's day on Sunday and with that in mind I thought I'd share what my make up picks would be for date night. I do believe Valentine's is just another day but it is nice to have an excuse to get a bit fancy. I'm going with a smoky bronze eye with a helping of Chanel on my cheeks and lips. My fail safe base for evenings out is MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix which I also reviewed recently the blog. I then pat on my concealer by Collection with the Dior Backstage Blender (I'm trying to love it, I really am).

Chanel Rose Petale blush is dusted on the apples of my cheeks with The Balm Mary Lou Manizer along my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose and cupids bow. The Glo & Ray Mariposa shadow quad in Golden Dunes* has been my go to on a number of nights out because the shadows last so long and don't crease. I used the two bronze shades on the inner and outer corners of my eyes with the Skybreaker Eyeliner* in Burgundy along my lash line. Lashings of mascara complete my eye make up thanks to Maxfactor False Lash Effect, my favourite mascara. Finally, I apply a slick of Chanel La Fascinante to give the perfect red pout. You can't go wrong with red lips on Valentine's day after all. 

Do you have plans for Valentine's? What make up will you be wearing?
