A Valentines Day Look #FOTD

Valentines Day Inspired FOTD

I wanted to try creating my own Valentines day-esque makeup look using colours we tend to associate with love and romance; pinks and purples! I missed out red because I didn't want to go too overboard!! 
I also wanted to try out Illamasqua's pure pigment in 'Static'- it's a loose glitter powder, similar in consistency and grain size to Barry M glitter pots. It's pure white glitter that sparkles lilac, blue and pink when the light hits it. It glimmers like freshly fallen snow, which I suppose is appropriate considering the current weather conditions accross the country!
I was feeling creative, so let me know what you think.


Overall look;

17 Photo Flawless primer
Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Coverage Foundation in 'Very Light'
Bare Minerals Matte Foundation powder in 'Fair'
M.A.C. Bronzer in 'Matte Bronze'
Benefit Hervana blusher

Benefit Stay Don't Stray eyelid primer
Illamasqua blusher in 'Lover'
Vivo eyeshadow in 'Purple Passion'
Illamasqua blusher in 'Thrust'
Laura Mercier eyeshadow in 'Fig'
Illamasqua pure pigment in 'Static'

Rimmel London liquid eyeliner
Yves Saint Laurent Dessin Du Regard Waterproof Black Eye Pencil
L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara
