My Look | Valentine's Day with Mr Grey




Valentine's day is upon us and with week's of subtle hinting to the other half landing me with a ticket and a date to see Fifty Shades of Grey this evening I can say I am one satisfied girl. Now whether the film is hot or not, I want to be. I'm not exactly going for full glam as let's be honest most of this evening will be spent in a dark movie theatre with my eyes locked on and my mouth drooling over Mr Grey, so I'm aiming for a more effortless but pretty look.

For my base I'm reaching for my Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation which delivers a medium coverage that'll last throughout the evening without any concern. To touch up any imperfections and brighten my under eyes and any redness around my nose I'll be using the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Then to warm things up and accentuate my natural features I'm reaching for Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze Glow. I'm sure that Christian Grey will deliver a natural flush to my cheeks throughout the evening, so I'll be avoiding blush on this occasion. Next to add definition and then set my brows I'll use the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil and Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara. For my eyes I'll be using my Lorac Pro 2 Palette and taking Rose across the lid with a mix of Nectar and Light Brown in the crease and along the bottom lash line to create some warmth. My lashes will receive several coats of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara because there is no better choice for Valentine's day! To line my eyes I'll take Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Gel Liner winging it out ever so slightly to ensure it'll stay in place is there are any movie tears. Finally, for lips I'll reach for my Swear By nude lip which is the Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Hepburn Honey to complete this radiant and feminine look.


Are you off to the cinema tonight as well? What look will you be wearing when you fall into Mr Grey's office?
