Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re going on a fun date tonight or just planning on enjoying a pamper evening at home, I think V-Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in some awesome beauty products. Here are some of my beauty picks that I’ll be enjoying today.
Today is the perfect day to show your skin some love (we’re supposed to love ourselves first, right?), and the Fresh Sugar Rose Face Mask is just the thing you need to give your skin some TLC. It’s a nourishing, hydrating mask that is infused with real rose petals and will give your skin that fresh, dewy glow. If you’re a superfan of glowing skin like I am, then the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Moonstone is right up your alley. It’s a golden, glistening powder that blends beautifully to create a highlighted, glowing complexion. I loving using this for strobing and to create a lit-from-within look.
A bold red lip is something that I think is ideal for Valentine’s Day – it’s sassy, sexy, and with the right shade, anyone can pull it off. One of my issues with creating a red lip look is bleeding, but luckily Pixi has created the perfect product to stop your lipstick from working it’s way down your chin. The Invisible Smudge Stopper Lip Contour Liner* is a transparent liner that helps keep your lipstick in place and stops it from smudging. Paired with their Mattelustre Lipstick in Classic Red*, you can create a flawless bold red lip that takes way less effort than before.
For nails, I think Essie’s A Cut Above Luxeffects Nail Polish* is a super cute, girly option for today. It’s a chunky pink/rose gold glitter, and looks great either by itself or layered over another color (my personal favorite combo is two layers of Essie’s Fiji with one layer of A Cut Above over top – looks like something you get at the salon, but you did it at home!). Then, to put the finishing touches on a Valentine’s Day look, I think a spritz or two of the new Clean Blossom fragrance* is the perfect choice. It’s a very fresh, clean floral scent that isn’t too overpowering but would add a nice romantic touch to your whole look.
