Valentines is just around the corner so I wanna share the love with the everything you need to treat yo self and get glammed up. There’s a mix of my favourite affordable and pricier beauty brands, from Benefit and Body shop to Sleek and St Moriz. Plus, I’m giving away all the items featured to get you ready for a proper Valentines pamper session…
SLEEK MIDAS TOUCH HIGHLIGHT PALETTE* | BODY SHOP STRAWBERRY RANGE* | CROWN 15 PIECE MAKE-UP BRUSH KIT | OPI POLISH IN I THINK IN PINK | JEWELLERY BOX ACCESSORIES | PAUL MITCHELL AWAPUHI PRIMER *
Sleek makeup is a total obsession of mine. It’s super affordable but, in this case, that doesn’t mean compromising on quality. The highlight palettes are blooming gorgeous and I love all the shades in the Midas Touch compact. It pairs more traditional highlight shades with peachy tones (perfect for blending with blush) and a blue shade that not only highlights but also neutralises redness. Makeup Revolution is another of my must-have budget beauty brands. The Love a Hug lipstick is super moisturising and the loose pigments are really build-able to create your own look.
If you fancy a pamper, Body shops strawberry range smells good enough to eat, and the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi range is packed with wild ginger to give your hair some serious shine. OPI is my go-to polish brand. I’ve got about 20 different shades and I’m in LOVE with this pretty li’l pink number. Pair it with OPI topcoat for longer lasting nails.
I’m a total hoarder when it comes to make-up brushes – I have sets from Zoeva, real techniques and about 1,000 more brands – but the Crown 517 kit is the perfect investment if you’re after a proper set. If you aren’t ready to drop £55 on new kit, the fan brush is a must have in my books and the perfect partner for the sleek palette. I’ve also featured some adorable pieces from jewellery box to finish off your Valentines look.
