So Valentines day is this weekend and I've decided to create two looks to show how easy it is to get a simple day look to a dramatic evening look using just one palette. I used the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 palette which is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette as it's got loads of pinky/purple colours in with lots of shimmers and mattes which are perfect for valentines day. I'm mentally labeling the colours in the palette 1-12 from the left (beige shade) so that you know what colour I'm talking about.

I started off with my usual base which is just moisturising with Olay Total Effects, I then go in with Nivea Men's Aftershave Balm as a primer- read my post about why I use this here. For foundation I'm loving the full coverage I get from my Max Factor Facefinity 3 in 1, to fill my brows in I use Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Blonde. To carve my brows out I just use a Makeup Academy concealer. 

Moving onto the rest of the face I use NYX HD Concealer to highlight under my eyes, to set this I use the banana powder from the Kat Von D contour kit. To set the rest of my face I use my holy grail powder which is the Rimmel 24 hour stay matte. I contour using the lightest shade from the Kat Von D contour kit, for blush I used a little bit of my Kiko blush and then to highlight I mixed a few shades from the Makeup Revolution Contour Palette

Now onto the day time look- if you wanted to you could have this as your evening look- I just prefer dramatic looks so this was just a quick and simple look using just a few colours. I started by priming my eyes with the Maybelline Colour Tattoo, to set this I took shadow 1 from the Iconic 3 palette all over my lid. In my crease I put shadow 4 and blended that out, to deepen my crease some more I took shadow 7 and really blended it to make it as seamless as possible. Over the lid I took shadow 5 and swept it across my entire lid, to deepen the colour of my lid more I took shadow 6 in the outer corner and blended it out. On my bottom lash line I took shadow 5 and then used shadow 4 to blend it out. For mascara I used Maybelline Lash Sensational which is my ultimate favourite. On my lips I used MAC Velvet Teddy however you could use whatever you like!

For the evening look I simply added shadow 12 into the outer corner and the outer part of my crease, I then blended it out to make it as seamless as possible and to really deepen my eyes. For liner I used shadow 11 across the top lash line just to keep it looking nice and smokey. I used Amazing Shine Lashes in 43 because they're very natural looking but still add that little flutter I like. On the lower lash line I added some more of shadow 12 to the first third to smoke it out some more.  To finish this look I used a Kiko lipstick in Wine to give a more evening look.
