F.O.T.D and N.O.T.D: Valentines Edition

Hi Everyone, 

Today is a bit of a different post, this is my first Face of the Day and Mini Nails of the day post, Inspired by Valentines Day and for a dinner I went to with Mary and some other friends for a Non Valentines "Valentines Day" Dinner the day after Valentines Day (Confusing, I know) and this is what I used.
Face:
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm 
Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation in 103 Ivory
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair
Bourjois Mineral Radiance Pressed Powder in 02 Vanilla
MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter

I used the Clarins Flash Balm under the Skin Illusion Foundation and both together they create a amazing finish to the skin and it lasts extremely well, I had it on for around 5 hours before I took it off and I didn't see much difference. I then used My favourite concealer, Lasting Perfection, To just add that slightly more coverage to the areas I needed. Finally setting with the Bourjois Radiance Powder and adding a bit of MUA Shimmer Highlighter (Review Coming Soon) to my cheek bones, then that was my base and cheeks done!

Eyes:
MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
MAC Eyeshadow in Naked Lunch
ELF Cream Eyeliner in Black
Illamasqua Eyeshadow in Lestat

Brows:
MAC Eyeshadow in Omega
MAC Eyeshadow in Vanilla
I used Mac Soft Ochre as a base and then added Mac Naked Lunch all over the lid and a tiny bit up to the crease, I then added a slight line with ELF Cream Eyeliner really close to the lash line to add a bit more volume and went over it with Illamasqua Lestat to soften, then ran a little under my eyes. I didn't use the Lashes unfortunately as I ran out of time, but I did curl my lashes, I didn't need any mascara as I had already had them tinted.

For my brows I softly added a bit of Mac Omega in the areas needed, Then placed Vanilla on my brow bone.

Lips: 
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo

Nails:
Barry M Nail Paint in Pink Flamingo
O.P.I Nail Varnish in Pink Yet Lavender
O.P.I Nail Varnish in Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It

Then to complete the look for lips I just used NYX San Paulo all over the lips by its self.

For my nails I used two coats of Barry M Pink Flamingo, Then just on my ring fingers I used a coat of O.P.I Pink Yet Lavender (Not pictured as it was a last minute thing, sorry), Then added a coat of O.P.I Nothin' Mousie 'Bout it over the top, dotting on the little hearts! 



There's the finished looks, Hopefully next time I'll remember to add a close up of the make up, I was just too tired when I got back, sorry. I hope everyone had a nice Valentines Day or Non Valentines "Valentines Day" in this case.

Have you tried any of these products? How do you like them? What did you choose as your Valentines Day look?
