Click to find all the details of my day and night looks from my Valentines Day Makeup Ideas

I thought I’d do a combined post with some of my favourite Illamasqua products  and do some Valentines Day Makeup Ideas.  I mean what is better then love and makeup!  So here are some Valentines inspired looks, one for the day and one for the night.

Illamasqua how do I love thee…

… let me count the ways

I thought it was about time I showed some love to Illamasqua.  They are absolutely one of my fave brands and if you follow me on the Sorbet Sundays Twitter then you would have seen me shout them out a fair few times.  I’m not ashamed to tell you I nearly cried real tears when they followed me lol.  I’ve also shown my love for them on guest post TLFW style but I figured it was time to give them the Sorbet Sundays love here ❤️

Foundation

So I started out with Skin Base in 17 (on top in the picture below) I love this foundation.  It’s a great full coverage product and it really makes my skin look amazing.  I usually get compliments from people when I wear this.

For contouring I used Skin Base 15 (bottom left) for under the eyes and nose and Skin Base 18 (bottom right) under my cheekbones.  Don’t forget to blend, blend, blend.  You do not want streaks!!!

Eyes

Illamasqua Pigment in Berber – An auburn shimmer, beautiful red glitter pigment. (I layered this on top of a deep pink).  It is loose powder so I used approximately 3 layers and that provided the impact that I wanted.

Lips

I wanted a nude lip for the day so I used concealer on my lips, set it with powder and then added my Illamasqua lip gloss in Enchant.  Nice and easy.

Day to night transition

So to amp this up for an evening look was fairly easy.

Step 1: I added more blush.

Step 2: Go for more drama on the lips.

Lips 2.0

Out with the nude and in with red.  What’s more dramatic then double red!!

I used Maybelline – Pleasure Me Red, a nice moisturising lipstick and then I added Illamasqua Succubus on top for an pretty,  glossy, punctuation point.
