Luxe Beauty | Valentines Day Makeup - Givenchy Le Rouge Review

So we are in the run up to Valentines Day, and although every year I tell my husband it is commercialised and a money pit but...I fall in to the trap of wanting to dress up and do something every year!

I love any chance to raid the makeup kit and go to town with the face paint so I always think Valentines is the perfect excuse. I strictly abide by the eyes or mouth rule which makes V day difficult - surely this day (if not most days) is the time to rock some seriously sexy red lips. I have far too many red lipsticks due to forever being on the hunt for that perfect red but my absolute fave that I always go running back to is Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick in Grenat Initié. It is gorgeously dark without being burgundy, I love the matte finish and to top it off the packaging is to die for - black leather and metal - wow!

For eyes I use Bobby Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Goldstone as it has a very subtle shimmer and you can build it up to whatever look you are going for, with a creamy brown eyeliner and some mascara it is a great eye look that it subtle enough with bold lips.

Topped off with some luminiser and subtle cream blush...that will be my Valentines look.
