Hello my lovelies,

Hope you had smashing week! 🙂 Today, I would love to share with you my Valentine’s day inspired make-up!

Even though things are tougher this year and restrictions are in place all over the world, our goal here is to enjoy ourselves wherever we are. We’re women and the way we look is something that we all take great pride in, lockdown or no lockdown, we’re still us!

This make-up look is one of my favourites because it’s both soft and strong in the same time. To achieve it, I’ve used my favourite products on Notino that I’ve been using since a couple of years now. 

Let’s go! 

Eyes – Make them pop

For my eyes, I’ve used The City Mini Palette by Maybelline in Rooftop Bronzes to achieve this soft glamour eye look. I’ve applied the lighter colours in the corner of my eyes and moved to the darker colours for my crease. 

As you can see I haven’t applied eyeliner as I usually do and instead I’ve replied on my trusted mascara: the Nobea 3D Effect Mascara to make my eyes looking bigger.

Lips – Sensual Red

Oh my! Since Summer, I’ve been using the soft mate lip cream lipsticks by NYX and I didn’t get the chance to talk about them until now. I own them in so many colours and what I really love about them is that they’re not drying out on the lips. 

To achieve this look, I’ve used the NYX lip cream in Madrid. They’ll make your lips looking extra sensual. 

Glow glow glow

Oh this palette La Vie En Glow by L’oreal is one of my favourites. I’ve applied the pink highlighter for a subtle and rosy glow. And that’s it!

Whatever you’re up to this Valentine’s Day, this make-up look will get you feeling sexy and confidence.

Summer Glowy Make-up looks are obsessing me at the moment. Right now, it’s the perfect time for catching a stunning tan and creating a glowy make-up look to complement it. If you’re hitting that sun bed in your backyard or escaping for a weekend at the beach, you will want to look the part. Have a look at how I created this look while also protecting my skin from UV rays.

Perfect your make-up base

After you moisturise and hydrate your face, you shall gently apply foundation with a beauty blender. I find it very important to perfect my make-up base by also applying a translucent powder in the T-zone after putting foundation on. To get the perfect summer glowy make-up look I’ve used this powder by NYX and it’s one of their best sellers. High Definition Finishing Powder in 01 is truly one of the products that I highly recommend. It has done major effects on setting my make-up from the first time I’ve used it.


Creating copper eyes & a nude lip

In order to create copper eyes I am using a NYX pencil. I will apply it directly to my eyelid with gentle touch. However, it’s important to use a subtle technique in order to avoid harsh lines. As a final step I always apply 2 coats of mascara, creating a gorgeous effect of glamurous but still natural eyelashes.

Moving on to the lips section, I have applied the stunning Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘London’ by NYX. Its touch has the perfect glowy summer make-up look effect, making your lips fuller and also natural.

Remember to wear UV protection

The final touch in reaching the perfect glowy summer make-up look is to always remember to add UV protection. Protecting your skin from UV and pollution usually one of the Avène Skin Care products shall be the best to use. For this look I’ve used the Avène Sun Sensitive Spray SPF 30. Its rich and velvety texture shall smoothen, enlighten your skin and also help in protecting you from UV skin damages.

Moreover, whilst you sun bathe, always remember to hydrate your skin with thermal water. You can also use the Avène Eau Thermale and enjoy good hydration on your skin.


You’re now all set for a stunning look whilst you’re out this Summer. If you’re wearing white or nude, this glowy make-up look will POP!

Until next time,
