As Valentines Day is just around the corner, I thought I’d hop right on the bandwagon and do a warm toned face. You know I can’t say no to warm tones. I know what you’re thinking, this is the same face you did at Christmas and yes, on the surface it’s very similar. Having said that, it’s back and it’s improved so it’s worthwhile giving this a read. I’m now wishing I’d done my green look at Christmas! I’ve been planning it since I started this bloody blog and I still haven’t gotten around to it. One day you’ll see it.
This look is different to my Festive Face as I’ve employed a new trick and this look is a hell of a lot warmer. I started this look by using Courtney from the Beauty Killer Palette, working it into the crease. I then deepened said crease with Burnt Orange from the Modern Renaissance Palette. To give a warm blown out effect, I used Venetian Red, also from the Modern Renaissance palette, in the same area. Here’s the fun bit, I went off piste and freestyled slightly and using Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Designer Blood to cut a crease. They’re eye safe, it’s all good. I then set and blended this upwards with Confession from the Beauty Killer palette. I found that this helps create an intense burgundy shade, that I love, while also creating a flawless blend with very little work. Winner! I then used Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Ice Cold in the very centre of the lid and the inner corner. I foiled this shade for intensity on the very centre of the lid. I topped this look off with winged liner and mascara as always.
I am still using the NYX Photo Ready Primer and I’m loving it. I didn’t use it yesterday, by an accident I must add, however I really noticed a difference so I will definitely be giving this a repurchase when I start running low. I am also still using a NYX Contour Single Pan in shade toffee to contour and I’m still very much enjoying it, it’s the perfect shade for my skin tone. Finally, I used Ice Cold again to highlight and make the whole look very cohesive.
As you may know, if you’ve been here a while, I love a monochromatic face, so I topped this look off by using Designer Blood on the lips as well as the eyes. I’ve done this trick a couple of times since creating this look and I love the matchy matchy look of identical shades on the eyes and the lips. Highly recommend giving it a try, I’ve received many a compliment!
