Get The Look: Natural Vamp For Valentine's Day


Love is in the air! It’s time to vamp up for those V-Day dates. Whether you have a casual picnic planned with your valentine or a rendezvous by starlight, this simple but stunning look will have you covered from sunrise to sunset and beyond. Eco makeup artist, Emmily Banks, explains how to create this natural vamp with her Valentine’s Day Get the Look.

Valentine's Day Get The Look


Prep the skin by applying a small amount of Mukti Antioxidant Facial Serum. Press onto the face and neck, allowing 4-5 minutes for absorption. Next apply INIKA Certified Organic Liquid Mineral Foundation, gently blending over the entire face to achieve a light, natural finish.


For beautiful sculpting of the cheeks, apply a few good sweeps of W3LL People Bio Bronzer Powder. To achieve the best results use the Ere Perez Kabuki Brush, applying below cheekbones and rounding up to temples in a “C” shape. Finish with a light dusting of the forehead, nose and chin.

Finish off with a beautiful glow, use Vapour Halo Illuminator in ‘Moonlight’ on top of the cheekbones, centre of forehead and under the brow. Apply directly from the stick and blend with fingertips for a beautiful, luminous reflection on the skin. W3ll People's Bio Brightener can also be used to create glow.


For eyeshadow use Ere Perez’s Eyeshadow Duo ‘Very Important’. Apply the gold shimmer to entire eyelid and then use the brown matte to build up shadow carefully from the outer corner to about halfway along the crease of your eyelid.

Next, add a generous liquid eyeline using Lavera Liquid Eyeliner Black and a few good licks of Lavera Volume Mascara Black to really make the eyes pop.

Lastly, ensure the eyes are perfectly framed, using Lily Lolo’s Eyebrow Duo to shape the eyebrows. Use an angled brow brush to apply the pressed powder in short, upward strokes to fill in any gaps and continue to follow the natural shape to the end of your brow. Apply the wax over the power to seal in place and hold brow shape.


For the perfectly kissable Valentine’s pout it has to be red! Give those luscious lips a coat of Karen Murrell’s Lipstick in ‘Red Shimmer’ to keep his eyes lip-locked all day and night.
