Copper Makeup for Valentines Day

With Valentines Day fast approaching, I created this look which can be both subtle and more full on. Usually, I would go for pale pinks and light browns but I thought that I would be a little more adventurous as I have improved my makeup skills. 

I always start by doing my eye makeup first, so I filled in my brows using the Freedom brow pomade in soft brown and set them in place using L'Oréal's brow artist plumper. I primed my eyes using the Urban Decay primer potion and went in with the copper/red shade from the Shaaanxo palette in the creases of my eyes and blended it out. I then used the shade 'element' from Urban Decays Moondust palette with a wet brush and patted it all over my eyelids. I made sure it was all blended out before moving onto the rest of my face.

I used the L'Oréal True Match foundation in the shade '2.N Vanilla' and concealed with the True Match concealer in 'Ivory'. I set my face with the L'Oréal infallible pressed powder. To contour, I used the Sleek contour kit in 'light' and contoured my cheekbones, the sides of my nose and temples. I highlighted my cheekbones, just under the eyebrows, inner corners of the eyes, down my nose and my cupids bow with Louise Young's 'owls' highlighter. 

I used the copper shade from the Shaaanxo palette to put on my lower lash line. I didn't need to put any mascara on my lashes as I have individuals anyway but I still put some Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara on my bottom lashes. I finished my eyes off using Rimmels black soft kohl pencil liner. I don't like my lips being too full-on, so I kept on track with the copper look but I didn't want anything too bright - so I went for NYX's Lingerie lipstick in 'bedtime flirt' which matched perfectly. I then set my face in place using Urban Decays de-slick setting spray.
