Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The time of big bouquets and yummy heart-shaped chocolate. Yet, the only thing I seem to have on my beauty blogger mind is what makeup should I be rocking for the occasion. I am definitely not a Valentine’s Day person but I must admit that getting ready for going out on V-Day is a fun experience. I tend to go for more natural, no-makeup-makeup type of look but I love incorporating pink into it so that I look more romantic and dreamy. Be it a date with a special someone or just hanging out with the girls – these beauty picks are tried and tested and they will surely boost my confidence and make me feel that bit extra special.
Benefit Lollitint Lip and Cheek Stain
I am all for natural, barely-there flush of color on the cheeks and this baby gives it all. Lollitint (review here) adds the prettiest, natural-looking pop of color to my face and I adore the way it brightens up my complexion. Its stunning dewy finish makes me look perfectly healthy, which is ideal for the occasion. The best part though, is that if you fancy playing it matchy-matchy you can always pop some of the tint on your lips and enjoy its gorgeous hues. This kiss-proof, long-lasting gem will make the ideal companion for Valentine’s Day and I am sure that your Valentine will love it as well ;)
Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush
Your-cheeks-but-better color? I love that. And I haven’t found anything more natural looking than this Rosy Glow blush by Dior (review here). Probably because its super cool formula adapts to your skin tone and enhances its natural color. The scary looking bright pink is gone and you can enjoy stunning brighter complexion that screams fresh and healthy. Perfect.
Soap and Glory Glow All Out
When I hear Valentine’s Day I imagine myself looking all luminous and radiant, ready to enjoy the company of my loved ones. Sadly, winter has taken away some of my natural glow so I need to fake it. My favorite partner in crime for the occasion is the Soap&Glory Glow All Out luminizing face powder (review here). This not-highlighter highlighter manages to add beautiful light to my skin without making me look glittery or too overdone. It is so subtle and natural and I swear by its stunning sheen-y finish. Pop it on the highest points of your face or all over if you feel like it and you are ready to go. Simples.
Too Faced Magic Mushroom Eyeshadow
Sadly smokey eyes don’t really do me a favor, so I tend to keep my eye makeup more natural. The shadow that I cannot live without and the one that will be glued to my eyelids on Friday is this beaut rose gold shade from Too Faced. Magic Mushroom (review and swatches here) catches the light beautifully and enhances the look like there is no tomorrow. It makes my green eyes pop and the formula is amazing – buttery soft and long lasting. Just add a touch of mascara and I am good to go! Pass it over, please!
Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake
Breaking my signature bold lip look, I decided to sport a nude pink for V-Day. Strawberry Shortcake (review here) is the most beautiful cool-toned candy pink I own and I adore it. It is so natural and romantic. The formula is incredible as well – creamy, opaque and beautifully moisturizing. It couldn’t get much better than that really – it’s love!
Sally Hansen in I Pink I Can
Pink nails are essential for Valentine’s Day and this Sally Hansen gem takes my pick. I Pink I Can (swatches here) is the most stunning bubblegum pink shade and it is so feminine and romantic. This beautiful cream dries out in seconds and has the perfect high-shine finish. It applies like charm and always makes me feel pretty when I wear it. Winner!
Victoria’s Secret Sheer Love Fragrance Mist
We don’t want to go out on a date / meeting with friends without smelling delicious, do we? Of course not, and the fragrance that will keep me company will definitely have to be Sheer Love by Victoria’s Secret (review here). This is the most dreamy and girly scent I own and it just screams youth and flirty. It is floral, it is cheery and it is so fresh that instantly makes me think about summer beaches. The scent is really clean and not overpowering in the slightest. It’s not the longest lasting fragrance out there but it will get you through the evening and will leave everyone around you smitten.
Have an amazing Valentine’s Day loves! Have you tried any of these products?
Lots of love,
