Valentine's Day Tutorials

The day is approaching, whatever your plans I have a makeup look for you so fear not. There are already so many fantastic looks out there that I thought I would share them with you, so there is something for everyone whether you like a dramatic vibrant smoky eye or more natural, toned down makeup. So keep reading for some tutorials and some makeup tips at the end to ensure you look your absolute best and feel your best this Valentine's.

Here are a few tutorials from my favourite YouTubers, this is quite possibly the most wearable look I think. It's by Teni from Miss Maven and she is naturally gorgeous and her look is soft and pretty and girly. She uses warm neutral browns on the eyes with a touch of soft pink on the inner corners, she also includes some outfit looks. This look is suitable for all plans whether it's a dinner a night out with your friends, a day trip, anything.

This next tutorial uses all drugstore products and is by Zoella, I just think it's very pretty and the deep lip goes really well with her skin colour. Also, how awesome does her hair look. I am so tempted to chop half my hair but I just can't bring myself to do it. 

Next is this gorgeous bronzey copper eye by Kaushal which would look amazing on all eyes (especially blue and brown). She is possibly my favourite beauty guru on YouTube just because all of her makeup looks are so fun and pretty without looking like too much or using a tonne of different products. Again, it's such a versatile look that could be worn in all situations and look amazing.

Last but not least, here is a really vibrant deep emerald smoky eye that is just mesmerising by Jaclyn Hill. She is famous for her smoky eye tutorials and this one definitely knocks it out of the park, perfect for a night out with your friends or if you're doing something at night with your significant other, or even if you just feel like doing something different with your makeup. I love this look.

No cake face, always use a light hand with all the products you apply to your face, it's better to build and layer rather than place a lot of product and look sloppy.
Be patient, getting ready should be enjoyable so take your time until your happy with how it looks.
As long as you feel great in whatever you are wearing that is all that matters, you want to be comfortable in your own skin and remember to just enjoy yourself. It's not about how you look, it's about who you are with (even if you are by yourself, you're awesome).
Make a playlist of your favourite songs while you're getting ready to get you in the mood and to stop you from getting frustrated if you can't get perfectly even wings.
Keep cotton buds (Q Tips) and makeup wipes on hand to erase any mistakes.
Take a lip balm with you so your lips stay soft and lovely all night and if you are wearing lipstick or lipgloss pop it into your clutch and use a lipliner first for longevity

Thank you for reading, I hope you liked at least one of these talented ladies' tutorials and that you found the tips helpful and not patronising, if you would like me to do one myself I would be happy too. I just don't want to subject you to more of the same content because there are so many Valentine's inspired tutorials out there, but if you do let me know. Don't forget to follow my blog and leave me a comment telling me your favourite look and your plans for Valentine's day. I am actually going on a cruise to Saint Malo in France for the weekend and I am so excited.

Love ♥
