Happy Valentine's Day! Whatever this day may mean to you, remember to always love yourself.

The boy and I are celebrating it a day late as he has to work today but that's perfectly fine. In some ways, it's just another day anyway. Planning ahead for our day out though, here is what I will be wearing.

As a base, I'm reaching for the new NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Medium 1 Punjab. This base provides the perfect flawless finish that looks natural and is incredibly long lasting. If any blemishes are still showing through, I know the trusty MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC30 will hide it well. To add a little life back into the complexion after fully covering my natural skin, I'm going with my winter go-to, NARS Sin Blush.

On the eyes, I always prime with the Urban Decay Primer Potion to hold everything in place. Keeping things simple, I'm doing a wash of NARS Kalahari eyeshadow all over the lids from the top right corner of the NARS And God Created The Woman palette. For extra definition, I'm lining my top and bottom lash line with the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes eyeliner in black. I've gotten back into lining my eyes with a pencil again for some reason as I love gently smudging it in for a soft yet grungy look. Of course, my top lashes get a good two coats of the Make Up For Ever Smokey Extravagant Mascara and the bottom lashes get my favourite Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.

Lastly on the lips, I'm keeping it simple and kissable with the Dior Lip Glow. It's a tinted lip balm that adds a little something-something yet it is still very much boyfriend approved. 

Did you do anything special for Valentine's Day this year?  


  1. Can't go wrong with a Nars face!!!! My elder son turned 8 yesterday; since he was born Valentine's Day is all about him <3 :D.

  2. I spent Valentines with me, myself and laptop hehe. I haven't heard much about that foundation actually!

  3. Everyday, I find more and more reasons to get that NARS eyeshadow palette! I love almost everything I try from that brand. For Valentines, I'm actually going to celebrate it the day after and go to Build a Bear for the first time to make a Toothless stuffed toy hahaha

  5. If I could only buy from one brand, I would go for NARS. They know how to get their products right!

    Happy birthday to your son! :)

  6. It must have been released a couple weeks ago but I'm loving it already! xx

  7. This palette is absolutely gorgeous and honestly, the only other palette I would need other than the UD Naked 2 Basics palette. The two are all I need!
    Build a Bear is surprisingly fun, even though it is designed for children. I suppose we can be children at heart! xx

  8. It is the only one I have been reaching for recently. I feel so boring for always mentioning it but whenever I wear it, someone will ask what I'm wearing. It is that good! xx

  9. Aww the dream palette and blush came out for this special day! I always get excited when I see those products in your blog!
    I hope you had a lovely V-Day :D <3

  11. Each day is Valentine's day for me! Just kidding!
    I may not have a Valentine, but I'm totally fine! :D
    Thank you! <3

  12. I didn't really do much! But had the best evening anyway; pizza and videogames with the boyfriend, can't really get much better! :P

    Hope you had an amazing day as well Celina!

  13. It's all about spending time with the one you love! Sounds like you had a great day! xx
