Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and the Lipstick Bandits have decided to each do a V day inspired lip.
My favourite style of makeup for Valentine’s Day is fresh, natural, and feminine- with most of the attention focused on the lips. For this FOTD I used the Ellis Faas Creamy Lips, which have a texture halfway between a lipstick and a lip stain. This makes them lightweight, and fairly transfer proof (ie. practically made for kissing ).
- NARS Grand Palais Duo (dusty pink side of the duo) blended all over top lids.
- MAC Copperplate eyeshadow blended on top of the Grand Palais to tone down some of the pink.
- MAC Chromagraphic pencil (light nude) NW15/NC 25 on waterline
- Individual lashes placed on the outer corner of top lashline.
- MAC Bronzer in ‘Bronze’ to contour
- MAC Gingerly blush on apples

A couple of you asked what makeup I was wearing in my sock bun tutorial post, so here is the FOTD makeup breakdown for you guys. My hair is curled here with a GHD (pretty atrocious job, which is why I put it into a bun later on in the afternoon).
I really hope we have a decent spring here in Melbourne. The weather has been so temperamental and we’ll have heat waves followed by freezing drizzly days. What’s the deal, Melbourne?
- Two Faced Shadow Insurance to prime lids
- Laura Mercier Topaz eyeshadow blended over mobile lid past the crease
- MAC Mauvement pigment on mobile lid to crease dry, then I applied Mauvement wet (using a damp flat brush) on the bottom part of the mobile lid.
- MAC Blacktrack fluidline to line upper lashline
- Eyelure Katy Perry lashes in ‘Sweetie Pie’
- MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in NC15/NW20 on the waterline
- MAC Golden bronzer to contour
- Estee Lauder Pure Colour blush in Sensuous Rose blush on apples
- Lancome Color Design Matte lipstick in Corset (swatched and reviewed here).

One of the looks from the last Ready To Wear shows at NYFW that I really wanted to try was the makeup done for Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2013 (see the images in my Fashion Week coverage post).
The ethereal quality and the warm of the makeup worked perfectly with the romanticism of the India- inspired spring collection in my opinion. I also thought that the look created for this Vera Wang show would be a great option for bridal makeup if you prefer a more natural look over a classic smokey eye. There is a nice subtle shimmer in both the lips and the eyes, which I quite like. The one thing missing is a Vera Wang wedding gown!
I hope you enjoy this FOTD, I’ve listed and photographed products used below

I took some FOTD shots yesterday before I rushed off to work so I thought I would post them up here.
Spring has sprung here and I was in the mood to try a simple flicked cats eye liner against a peachy colour palette as seen on the runways (to see the look and commentary go to my previous post here). It’s a super simple look that in my opinion would be great on a day time date, or Valentine’s day.

Valentine’s Day is less than a day away, and frankly I can hardly wait. Tomorrow P and I are getting on a flight to Hobart for a much needed holiday (the last time I managed to get away for a holiday was my trip to New York in November 2011, and it’s getting to the stage where just getting through each day at work felt like torture. First world problems? Perhaps.)
Although I’m not a huge fan of chocolate or flowers, I do like having something pretty on my lips during V day. Miranda from Clinique HQ very kindly sent me her favourite Valentine’s lip products : Clinique Chunky Cherry Chubby Stick and Clinique Extreme Pink High Impact Lip Colour. I thought I would swatch, review, and FOTD them for you, loved up reader.
Price: Chubby Sticks: $35.00 AUD, High Impact Lip Colour: $36.00 AUD
Availability: Clinique counters worldwide, Myer department stores.]
