Hey! I wanted to start this post off by saying thank you so so much to those who follow my blog, thank you to those who have ever liked/commented on my blog and thank you for the support on my blog. I love writing about beauty/fashion and ever since starting Rachael Louise Beauty, I have felt my confidence grow and grow so thank you!
Anyway, onto the post…
Since Valentines Day is even closer than before, I wanted to put another look up which can be easily recreated! I’ve also just got another palette and I really wanted to play with it, so I am sorry if this look appears similar to another I’ve done!
Whenever I think of a ‘Classic’ Valentines makeup look, this is what I imagine. However, if I suited a red lip then I would definitely pair it with that instead.
This is my new palette! I’ve been after the Morphe 35O since forever and I’ve never been able to get my hands on it. My friend recommended this palette from eBay as it has very similar shadows and was only £10. I’m so glad I got this! It is SO pigmented and looks stunning in every swatch. It’s not an exact dupe for the 35O(S) in particular, but it’s close enough.
Starting with the eyes, as always, I primed using my concealer and set using my loose powder. Since the palette above has no matte shades, I had to use another palette. I decided to use the I Heart Makeup Chocolate and Peaches palette (a dupe of Too Faced Sweet Peach palette which you can read about here). So it’s easier to follow, I’ll use the names from the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette which correspond to the Chocolate and Peaches palette (hopefully that makes sense!).
For my initial transition shade, I used I Heart Makeup’s version of “Georgia”, a soft pink colour, on a fluffy blending brush using wind-wiper motions. To intensify the crease, I went in with “Summer Yum” and used the exact same motions to blend the two shadows together.
To deepen up the outer third of my eye, I used “Charmed, I’m Sure” on a tapered blending brush. I also blended this shadow lightly into my crease, but not taking it up as far as the other two.
Using the Morphe-like palette (not sure what else to call it haha), I used a flat shader brush and picked up shadow marked 1 in the photo, a deep brown shadow. I applied this into the outer third of my eye and lightly blended this into the centre of my lid. For my lid colour, I used my finger to apply shadow marked 2 which is a golden shadow and applied this solely onto the centre. Using your finger gives far more intensity to any eyeshadows (especially shimmers). For the inner corner of my eye, using my finger again, I went in with shadow marked 3 as more of a highlighting shade. I always make sure to go back with a clean fluffy brush to blend any new shadows further, without adding any more product.
To finish the eyes off, I added the same shadows to my lower lash line, a coat of mascara and added false lashes.
